Weekly Photo Meme! The Body Care Edition and a little surprise!

Hello! Once again, I’m doing Yumeko’s Photo Meme but this time, I’m a week behind schedule! :s Without further ado, here we go!

1. Body Wash

The Body Shop’s (TBS) Passion Fruit Shower Gel with Dr. Bronner’s Magic Peppermint Soap! I usually purchase TBS’ Shower Gels when they go on sale and I vaguely remember paying £2.50 for this if I’m not wrong. Dr. Bronner’s on the other hand is one of my favourite soaps as it lathers up beautifully even though not much is used! I do not find Dr. Bronner drying but the boyfriend claims it turns his skin scaly. Hmm!


2. Skin Moisturiser

Clarins Body Cream, L’occitane’s 100% Shea Butter, The Body Shop’s Almond Body Butter. The Clarins Body Cream came with my Eau Ressourcante Fragrance and I like using it in summer as this is one of my lighter body moisturisers. L’occitane’s 100% Shea Butter is incredibly thick and greasy and I only use it on dry bits eg. elbows, knees and back. The Body Shop’s Almond Body Butter is used as an all-over body moisturiser. These 3 products are what I currently use but my favourite all rounder is the Astral Cream which isn’t in the photo as I’m currently out of it!

3. Hair Treatment / Conditioner

My hair has been in a little bit of a mess since running out of my HG L’occitane conditioner but these 3 items are a godsend for me! L’occitane’s Hair serum for dry/damaged hair works very well on damp hair, not so on dry as it tends to make your hair look greasy so buyers beware! I use Aveda’s Brilliant Damage Control spray prior to blow drying my hair as this product helps protect my hair from thermal and UV damage as well as reduce breakage for all hair types. The lastest addition to my collection, L’oreal’s Mythic Oil Milk. Smells lovely and leaves my hair soft, shiny and smooth without weighing it down!

4. Perfume

I’m not big on fragrance, and these two bottles were a gift from the boyfriend over the years. I also have a bottle of Chloe’s perfume but the silver edges of the bottle have tarnished hence, not very picture friendly. 😉 I do not wear perfume on a daily basis and thanks to this meme I’m going to try wearing them everyday! =)


Now, I know this is meant to be a 5 photo meme with the final one being other body care items you use! I already featured my sunscreen in the previous meme and since I did promise a FOTD in this post, I thought why not post it here! 😉


I doubt this even counts as a FOTD as I barely have any make up on. Here’s what I used:

1. MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC15

2. Guerlain Perles D’Azur Meteorites

3. Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Nuit d’Amour (lightly dabbed on, worn as a stain)

4. Guerlain Terracotta Gloss in Porto Azzurro


I didn’t apply any foundation or blush as my skin was looking happy on the day I took this photo and I felt I should place more emphasis on the lips! Okay you caught me out on this one… I should have at least applied some eyeshadow / mascara or even eye liner but I was too lazy to doll up. Besides, why doll up when it wouldn’t make much of a difference? =D

A little on the lips: This is what Nuit d’Amour looks like when worn full-on, just to give you an idea on how warm the lip colour looks. The lip colour takes on a cooler and more wearable tone for everyday use when a thin layer of Porto Azzurro’s applied over the top.


As for the surprise…. A teeny flash giveaway is in the works to thank all of you for being lovely readers so do stay tuned as this giveaway is not going to be open for very long! 😉


Have a lovely day everyone and Happy Friday! =)

happiness is.

when I have my cup of tea to kickstart the day. when I listen to Max Schneider on YouTube. when I realise (with slight dismay) that I actually find Bieber’s Boyfriend catchy. when waking up… View Post
