Dove Deeply Nourishing Body WashBody wash? Yep we’ve all got to use it. Sometimes I feel like investing money into it and splashing out and sometimes I want a reasonably priced pick that I know I can rely on. For me, Dove is this pick. I was sent this new Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash, but I had actually done a basics shop in Boots a few days before and picked up a bottle myself!

I love the soapy “clean” smell of it…if that makes sense? πŸ™‚

I tend to use it on my hands when I am washing as normal. A little goes a long way and it feels really nice and silky on the skin. I use it to shave aswell. I am not really a shaving gel lover, and I find the Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash is a great alternative. And because it is so reasonably priced, I don’t feel like I’m wasting the product either.

Once or maybe even twice a week, I like to exfoliate my skin. Again, I can use the Dove Body Wash for that too.

I can sometimes find gritty body scrubs a bit too harsh. Using the body wash, which feels lovely and nourishing, I apply it with this exfoliating gloves. You can pick them up in loads of different places. I get mine in Penney’s. I love this combo, because I am in control of the scrubbing, not the product and The Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash lathers up nicely and makes my skin feel nice and soft afterwards.

Overall, The Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash is a winner in my book. I have always loved the Dove range of body wash products. My skin doesn’t feel dry or dehydrated after using them. The Nourishing Body Wash is particularly good for this. At the minute it is €1.74 (half price) in Boots . Cannot argue with that really πŸ™‚

Ok I know I know The Botanics Radiance Balm is all over the blogosphere at the minute, but there is a reason for it…it’s bloomin’ good! And I own the coveted Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow!!

It says it “softens,brightens for instant radiant skin for all skin types”. It contains hibiscus which is meant to be a natural brightness booster. It also meant to have natural ahas that are supposed to act as a mild exfoliant.

I use it personally as a moisturiser as I have oily skin, but they say to use it in conjunction with one, so that’s up to you. So what is the Botanics Radiance Balm? Well it’s a really light cream (or balm) that has a slight sparkle to it. It looks pink in the tube but applies translucent and when massaged in it gives you a subtle highlight effect.

Radiance Balm Massaged Into The Skin

 

 

You apply it to help brighten up your complexion which we all know can look a bit worse for wear especially early in the morning. You can of course add more where you want more of a glow. For me, I just add a pea sized amount to my finger tips and apply a light layer all over. I give it a couple of minutes to sink in and then apply my makeup as normal. I don’t find it interferes with my makeup at all which is a big deal for me.

It smells really nice and also has SPF 15 too!

 

I have used the face wipes,face wash and eye makeup remover from All Bright range and I really like them all. Botanics are doing a good job in my book for a very very competitive price. The Botanics Radiance Balm can be picked up in or on Boots.ie and is always on sale or on 3 for 2 so keep an eye out. At the minute it will set you back €3.99, bargain!

Get it and see for yourself πŸ™‚
