2013 Favourites // Bath & Body

For this years favourite beauty products I've tried to pick out products I've tried, bought and fell in love with this year. I'm still loving every single product that I had in last years favourites but haven't included any this year so I'm duplicating things.
Roques Oneil Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts // After Anna and Fleur both raved about these bath salts helping you sleep I knew I had to try them as I always have problems getting to sleep and staying asleep through out the night. I fell in love with them instantly, from the packaging to the scent to how well they work. You throw in a scoop full of the salts into your bath and sit back and relax for 20 minutes. Once you get out the bath you're meant to pat yourself dry and not touch electronics before you go to bed. I don't stick to the no electronics part but they really do help you sleep better. I also really like that you can buy a refill bag which works out slightly cheaper and just re-use the original jar.

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm // This has been my go-to night hand cream for such a long time and the tube is still going strong. I really like the metal packaging and that I can use a tube squeezer to get every last bit of product out. The scent is a mix of mandarin oil, rosemary leaf and cedarwood. This hand cream doesn't leave your hands feeling greasy but it is quite thick and takes a little while to soak in so it's perfect for just before bed.

Burberry Body Perfume // I fell completely in love with this perfume at the start of the year and have since finished it. Apart from Paco Robanne Lady Million, Burberry Body is the perfume I get the most compliments about when I wear it and those what perfume are you wearing? questions. I'm itching to buy a new bottle but it's going to have to wait till my spending ban is over. The notes are green absinthe, peach, freesia, rose absolute, iris, sandalwood, cashmeran, vanilla, amber and musk.

Caudalie Divine Oil & Scrub // I seem to have mentioned these two Caudalie products quite a lot on the blog recently so I wont talk too much about them. They both work really well and smell amazing.

Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Care // I tried a sample of this from a Birchbox back in March and finished the tube in a matter of days and then went onto buy the full size tub. I tend to use this on dry patches of skin and on eczema as it's a really thick almost balm-like cream and is extremely moisturising. It has a camphor scent which does fade after a minute but I find it quite a relaxing scent. You can buy the mini tubes so I'd definitely recommend doing so. It works really well as a night hand cream as well.

Korres Guava Shower Gel // This is another product I've mentioned a lot and this is my third bottle. To me the scent is summer in a bottle although I do still use it in the winter. It's a really fruit almost sun tan lotion scent and the shower gel itself is very moisturising and lathers really well.

    1. Ebay for a couple of pounds. It's similar to this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Head-Gear-Tube-Squeezer-Metal-Device-Measure-Exact-Amounts-Of-Tint-With-Ease-/121234668023?pt=UK_HealthBeauty_Other_RL&hash=item1c3a2639f7
