your gunna catch a cold, from the ice inside your soul.

Hi fellow bloggers, and thanks for strolling over to our blog!
Sorry for the lack of blogging lately, I find myself apologizing about that alot these days! Hope you've all been well, i've been trying to enjoy Londons two day summer, I love how just as its getting hot, you know that damn rains on its way to spoil it.

To the people living in London, the riots are getting ridiculous! It started off as protests, then riots, but now its sheer looting and robbing and vandalising shops. What their doing is disgusting, and I hope everybodys alright.
Today, I decided I would blog about my collection of body moisturisers! I have horribly dry skin so I like to moisturise my body everyday, and I have such a variety i'm usually spoilt for choice when it comes to picking one! Body moisturisers should, in my opinion, be an essential as it helps to prevent dry and cracked skin, and keeps our skin soft and smelling nice. Here i'll show you a few of my favourites..

Pink Grapefruit Body Puree - £8 from The Body Shop.

I think the bottle I own is a travel one that I received in my christmas stocking, it wasn't £8! If you look on the website, you'll see the £8 one is slightly bigger and consists of a pump. I'm sure you'll all agree the body shop can be pricey at times, although I swear by most of the products and trust it 101%. When I first used this product I thought it was a little sticky at first, but once i'd rubbed it all in my skin felt incredibly smooth and plump! It also gives off a lovely, summery and fresh fragrance.

Garnier Skin Naturals Summer Body Moisturising Lotion - £5.10 from Boots.

I love this lotion sooooo much! Aswel as being very moisturing to my skin, it gradually builds a lovely natural looking tan, so its perfect if your pins are looking a little pale and pasty. The lotion is also enriched with exacts of apricot, and the product also gives off a light fruity scent.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion 200ml - £3.36 from Boots

Already being a huge fan of vaseline products, I was thrilled to spot this lotion on the shelves, and seeing as the price is quite reasonable I thought i'd grab it. They do the same lotion in a small variety of fragrances/flavours, but I decided to buy a the non-scented one, and i'd recommend this lotion to people who prefer something without fragrance and suitable for sensitive skin. Its also very moisturising and rich.

Sweet Lemon Body Butter - £5 from The Body Shop.

I adore all of the body shop body butters, simply because they're so rich with moisture and the fragrances are amazingly strong, but bearable. The sweet lemon has a lovely vibrant citrus scent, also perfect for summer.

I'm a complete sucker for these body shop body butters, mmm!

Before I finish off, I wanted to quickly bring up You guys may have read about it on buddingbeauties or may well already have heard of it, and me and Holly thought the jewellery on there was amazingly gorgeous. We decided to buy some friendship necklaces off there, although we still haven't received them and its been well over the time period they should arrive. Others may have had better experiences with dollybowbow, although I can say now me and Holly aren't impressed.

Hi guys, i'm pleased to say that Holly recieved an email from dollybowbow after sending a complaint, in which the owner wrote that the package was sent but assumes it must have been lost in the post, and she has sent a replacement yesterday. I'm going to keep my original review although it clearly wasn't her fault so I felt this needed to be said. We look forward to showing off our necklaces when they arrive!
*All my opinions are written from experience, so do not be startled if you have a different reaction to the products then i've had, were all different!
