Best of 2013: Skincare, Bodycare and Haircare

Welcome back to the second instalment of my Best of 2013 series, where I tell you all of my favourite products of the year. The first post was about makeup (here) and this is about everything else- skincare, bodycare and haircare!

Best Perfume: Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Toilette, this is a beautiful fragrance that works well both during the day and the night, with great lasting power

Best Shampoo: Organix Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo, this shampoo makes my hair feel so soft and helps to tame my unruly hair
Best Conditioner: Elvive Nutri-Gloss Light Shine conditioner, prevents greasiness and prolongs shine, what more could you wish for?
Best Hair Treatment: Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Intensive Mask, it's a great product to restore my hair and make it feel healthier and repaired
Best Styling Product: John Frieda 3 Day Straight spray, I spray this on wet hair and my hair stays straight until my next wash!

Best Body Wash: Palmolive Olive body wash, it's seriously moisturising and smells great, it's a really no-nonsense, no-frills product
Best Body Scrub: Sabon Tropic body scrub, it smells amazing, literally the smell lasts all day, and it sloughs off all the dead skin cells
Best Body Lotion: Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter, this smells lovely and provides instant hydration without feeling uncomfortable, sinking it quite quickly
Best Hand Cream: Elizabeth Arden Intensive Moisturising Hand Treatment, a really intensive moisturiser that does the job without a feeling of greasiness

Best Makeup Remover: Bioderma Sebium H20 Solution, it does a great job as removing waterproof makeup and preventing greasiness
Best Cleanser: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, this smells amazing and feels so luxurious on my face, a definite pick me up
Best Toner: Caudalie Beauty Elixir, again, this smells amazing and feels really refreshing 
Best Serum: Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil, really intensive for overnight moisturisation
Best Day Moisturiser: Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion, it's a lightweight moisturiser that makes a great base for makeup
Best Evening Moisturiser: Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel, it's not a thick and weighty moisturiser, but it still does the job without any discomfort
Best Eye Cream: Esteé Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream, this is a very thick and intensive eye cream providing some serious moisture
Best Face Mask: Origins Clear Improvement mask, this is great for sorting out any pesky blemishes and generally for clearing up a bad breakout
Best Spot Treatment: Freederm Gel, this can literally do miracles overnight, making an angry inflamed spot much less noticeable

That wraps up my favourites of 2013, what a long way I've come since my 2012 days of black eyeliner, mascara and power, with the only skincare routine being makeup remover wipes and an occasional face scrub!

  1. So many of your picks are things I want to try, especially the Estee Lauder ANR. I am itching to get my hands on it!
