Beauty- Best Bath & Body Brands of 2012

Number 5
L'Occitane (En Provence)
L'Occitane is a fabulous brand, perfect for gifts for Mums & Nans but is extremely expensive for what it is. The scents are very natural and focus around traditional fragrances such as rose, cherry and plum blossom and lavender. They sell a range of bath & body products, fragrances, candles and hair products for both men and women. Here are some of my personal favourites:

Shea Hand Cream

Number 4
Soap & Glory
Soap & Glory is a highstreet brand I'm sure you've all heard of as it is sold in stores such as Boots and Harvey Nichols. It is incredibly cheap and at the moment they are selling a lot of gift sets at reduced prices (it being past Christmas and all). If the full size products are still out of your price range, Boots sell the travel-size range which are fab for trying out new products you are unsure of. And if you really want a cheaper alternative try Dirty Works (sold in large supermarkets i.e. Sainsbury's) Here are a few of my favourites:

 Scrub Your Nose In It (face mask)

Sugar Crush (body scrub)

Number 3
Lush Cosmetics
Most people would question why I have put Lush so low considering most beauty bloggers rate them quite highly and would even go as far to say it's their favourite brand. However, there is no Lush near me and I have only been in one twice (about 3 years ago was the most recent visit). I would order online but I'd hate to order something then hate the smell! I plan to go shopping in Maidstone soon as I heard there is a Lush there, I will keep you posted! As for now, I can't put any 'personal favourites' on as I can't recall which products I had bought :-(

Joint Number 1 & 2
The Body Shop
I found it so hard to choose between these two as they are both my favourite brands in beauty. Rituals has the more sleek and elegant edge to bathing but the Body Shop is more affordable and has lot more relatable scents (strawberry, coconut, chocolate etc) compared to Rituals (Honey Touch, Mei Dao etc). At the moment here are my favourite Rituals products (these are also best-sellers and smell DIVINE! I would recommend these to anyone):

Here are my personal favourites for the Body Shop:

Lychee Blossom shower gel (not sold in the B.S. anymore)

Vanilla Bliss Collection:

Thank you for reading, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas,
Lots of love,

Me- I'm back!

I'm so sorry for the looooong break guys but I've been swamped with work and 6th form at the moment! I thought I'd have time to blog during the week when I went back to school but obviously not, 5 A-Levels & a 14 hour-a-week job is so time consuming :-( but the good news is that I'm back and will strive to blog at least once a week so thank you for waiting, please comment with any posts you would like to see :-)
Lots of love,
