A Full Body Service with Anatomicals*

IMG_1128

I love Anatomicals. It has long been one of my favourite brands. I think the packaging is by far one of the best around, and the smell of the products is better than any other. So, I was very excited to receive a parcel from them, to whip my body into shape. I’ve been neglecting my beauty regime a bit recently, so I thought I’d give myself a full body service!

Hands and Feet

FullSizeRender-8

I suffer with dry skin, and the first thing to go is always my hands and feet. The hand cream has already become one of my favourite hand creams. It smells amazing and has a gorgeous texture. It also adds a lovely shine to your nails. The shea butter is deeply moisturising but not heavy.

The foot cream smells just like a spa! It feels like you’re having your own pamper session. The eucalyptus scent is invigorating and refreshing. My feet are definitely softer and less callused.

You can purchase the hand cream here and the foot cream here.

Lips and Eyes

I love these lip balms. I usually buy a stick lip balm, but these are liquid. The nice thing about them is that they are really softening but don’t like an early 2000s over glossed look. They definitely protect your lips properly from the elements and make them look plump and kissable! The spf element is definitely a winner too.

The eye gel is incredibly cooling and not heavy. Exactly what you want to waken your eyes up. It is not sticky and soaks into the skin immediately. Dark circles and lines visibly reduce using this. A little bit goes a long way! Works on my sensitive skin, so I believe it is safe to use on all skin types.

Skin, Muscles and Joints

So I have some areas which get particularly dry. One knuckle on my left hand seems to be a real bugger to get rid of. I like this balm, because it does seem to be keeping it a bit more in check than usual. It’s definitely less angry looking. I have been applying it around 3 times a day. I think a few more times a day and it could well be almost gone in a couple of weeks.

I get the occasional bout of muscle aching and joint pain in my knees and fingers due to hypermobility, so it’s always good to have something handy to reach for other than a load of pain meds. I like this rub because it uses arnica, which is amazing for inflammation and pain.

You can buy the both here.

Hair and Body

I like these because they smell lovely…obvs, and they’re really handy to take to the gym and swimming with me. I’m not often one for 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioners, but I like this one because it’s not so conditioning that it makes your hair greasy.

These come from the Jet Set Saviour Pack, which is one of my favourite weekend away kits. You can also find the lip balm and dry skin balm in this pack, which is an absolute bargain. It also includes my all time favourite body lotion.

Full Body

FullSizeRender-7

My legs have been really flakey recently, I don’t know why. I wanted to find a scrub to use in the shower that wasn’t too rough and also didn’t leave that over-the-top greasy residue on the skin or gravely bits in the bath. This is a really great scrub because of course it smells amazing (duh) but it’s a nice texture and does the job I’m looking for. My skin feels freshened up and soft after using it, but not red and scratched. Also, importantly it is microbead and paraben free. It uses walnut shell to revitalise skin.

To add the finishing touches, the Mango and Coconut Body Lotion (guess what I think about the smell of this product) is perfect. It is enriched with vitamin E, so leaves the skin silky soft and you feel like you’re on a tropical holiday using it.

You can buy the scrub here and the lotion here.

I really do love everything about this brand. It’s cruelty free, well packed, smells AMAZING, does what it says and is a great price for what you are getting.

Anatomicals is sold through ASOS, Superdrug, Ulta Beauty and…Anatomicals 😉

Linziclip Review*

FullSizeRender-4

 

Linziclip® sent me a selection of clips to try out last week, and I couldn’t wait to give them a go. I love trying out different hair styles because I feel like my hair is a bit boring on it’s own!

The Linziclip® is a revolutionary new hair clip which thanks to its patented advanced gripping mechanism and two spring device, camouflages the inner workings of the old style claw clip whilst gripping the hair better than ever before. And the springs are hidden.

Linziclip® come in different sizes, for different styles. It is also available for different thicknesses of hair. I used medium thickness on my hair.

I found the clips really easy to use and quite handy for keeping my hair out of the way for going out on a night out and going to interviews.

They come in lots of different designs and colour, so you can always match them with your outfit or mood.

I liked the larger ones most, as I found they held my hair in place better, because it is so long. I think the little ones are lovely and would suit short hair styles really well.

Wikaniko Cold Pressed Moringa Oil*

C7Zh2RXXUAIsmg9

I was very excited when this product arrived. I had heard a lot about Moringa Oil and its many benefits.

Moringa oil is reputed to be the best anti-ageing oil in the world, along with that it is also, antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and very moisturising for skin and hair.

As I’m only 26, I thought I’d ask my mum to try out the anti-ageing side of things. She has only been using it a week, but she already sees a massive difference! Her skin is smoother and clearer. Her lines are disappearing and she has noticed the age spots on her hands are fading. She is incredibly impressed with the results.

We have both been using it on our hair, and I have definitely noticed my hair has stopped splitting as much. You can use the oil to wash hair, as a hot oil treatment or to moisturise the scalp.

One thing I was also interested in, was whether it helped the joint pain I sometimes get in my elbows. I had read that Moringa oil can benefit joint pain and arthritis. I would say, that the pain in my elbow gradually went away with use, and I am intrigued to ask my friends with arthritis whether it helps them.

It is high in vitamin C and anti inflammatory, so is wonderful for people who have rosacea like me! You can consume the oil if you wish to get the full benefits of the vitamin C. It can also help control blood pressure and supply you with energy throughout the day.

I really recommend this oil, especially for its anti-ageing properties. It is the best result I’ve ever seen from any cream my mum has used.

The Wet Brush

The Wet Brush Pro

I have been brushing my hair whilst drying it for years. Recently I read that doing this can really damage you’re hair, and I’m not surprised, as my hair was very split ended! Since using The Wet Brush, my hair has been in a lot better condition and it drys a much nice shape.
