Welcome back Iconique Beauties
Winter is finally here !! But that also means for some of us , also the season of dry hair and skin which leaves us feeling absolutely defeated on how to maintain that gorgeous summer glow during these freezing temperatures.
Sometimes with products that help with hydration the most has the most horrible smell or just feels like you’ve added an extra layer skin instead of it being absorbed by your skin. Here is our list of products that will leave your body feeling moisturised and smelling amazing.
Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Body lotion comes with vitamin E which helps relieve dry skin as well as scars and eczema. It doesn’t leave a greasy after feel which we’ve experience with other cocoa butter lotions but rather a light weight feel which leaves you skin feeling replenished. Obviously due to the name , this lotion has one of the best scents and it is not overpowering. This allows you to also pair it with a mild perfume or body spray that complements the scent of the lotion.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Body Lotion in 400ml retails for R51.95 at Clicks. This lotion really awesome for their price point and you can get a lot of usage out of this bottle.
The infamous Body Shop Body Butter which comes with an array of different flavours but still manages to help rejuvenate the skin with a light weight feel. Packed with vitamins , the body butter helps with scarring and insider note : (from Gigi) I found it very useful if you have irritated skin or a rash. its a great temporary replacement if you don’t have Schedule 2 creams on hand. With such
The Cranberry Body Butter is Koko’s favourite flavour and the Moringa Body Butter is Gigi’s fav. The Body Butter retails for R160 at selected Clicks stores and R170 at the Body Shop.
Last but not least , the Gelish Nourish Cuticle Oil is an essential especially during cold and dry weather. In order to have good and healthy nails , well looked after cuticles are a must. During winter , cuticles and the skin along side you nails tend to dry up which makes scabbing around that area more likely to happen. The cuticle oil has a great scent , keeps the skin around the nail quite nourished and also doesn’t leave this skin feeling overly oily. What’s also an added benefit is that it doesn’t leave any residue on clothing or paper if you’re handling certain objects.
To get this products really does depend on which salon you go to and if they use Gelish. They usually go for R90 for 5ml bottle.
Everyone need at least one perfume or body spray in their collection.
Prada Candy Kiss is one of our favourite perfumes out of the Prada Candy collections as its has a scent which is very easy take into all seasons. With notes of orange blossom and vanilla , it makes for wonderful musky scent for winter.
This retails for $118 on Sephora.com
PINK by Victoria Secret
For those of you who don’t like perfumes and want something a little bit lighter , Body mist is a great replacement without having to use deoderant. The Sweet & Flirty Body Mist has a super refreshing but sweet scent due to a hint of aloe. This is a easy transportable bottle which is perfect for on-the-go or after the gym.
The 250ml bottle retails for R250 at Victoria’s Secret
These essentials in our opinion helps us get through these cold winter months and helps us get ready for summer ( ’cause a summer body is made in winter)
XOXO, Koko & Gigi
