2014 Favourites: Hair, Body & Skin Care !

Asalam-o-Alaikum Everyone !
A very Happy New Year ! I hope everyday of this new year brings loads of joys to you and your family (Ameen) =). I know it's verrrryyyyyy late but as they say "Better late than never" =D.
I enjoy reading the favourites post on other blogs. I find them very helpful as you get to know about the best of the best products. So I wanted a slice of the action too and thought of doing a post on my 2014 favourites aswell (^_^) !

I've divided my favourites into three categories:

  • Hair, Body & Skin Care 
  • Books, Candles & Accessories 
  • Make-up 
Today I'll be sharing my Hair, Body & Skin Care Favourites (^_^) !

Hair Care: 

Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Hair Repair with Liquid Keratin Shampoo: I have been really loving this shampoo. Makes my hair soft and fluffy =D ! 

Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Volume Conditioner: Doesn't weigh my hair down. Gives them volume and keeps them smooth and touchable <3 . 

Lush Superbalm Scalp Treatment: The name says it all =D ! It sure is a superbalm. Keeps the dandruff and itchiness away from the scalp. Helps maintain a healthy scalp and hence healthy hair =D. 

Saeed Ghani Snake Oil: Please don't get scared by the name =D It's not actually snake oil, it's a hair serum ! Makes my hair look healthy, shiny and tames the frizziness. 

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry: My partner in crime, haha =D ! I get pretty lazy at times (read most of the times =p ) so, in such times this baby comes in handy just spray a little on your roots and poooofff ..!! All the oiliness is gone. I've tried it in cherry, blush & tropical but my fav has to be cherry <3 .

Body Care:

The Body Shop Bath Gloves: With this I don't need to invest in a body scrub. It exfoliates all the dead skin off my body leaving it healthy and smooth. 

Vaseline Total Moisture Pure Oat Extract Body Lotion: This is by far the best lotion for summers that I've used. Very moisturizing, absorbs quickly and non greasy. Oh and it smells good too =D . 

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter: Best for winters. Extremely moisturizing. Keeps your skin moisturized and soft all day long ! And the fresh, fruity-floral scent is a plus =D . 

The Body Shop Moringa Body Mist: It smells like Jasmine <3 So floral and fresh I love it ! It immediately uplifts my mood. 

Gucci Guilty Eau de Toilette: Three words only; Strong, Bold & Classy ! 

Skin Care:

St'Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Gel Cleanser: Very gentle on the skin, lathers well, does the job right and I really like it =D ! 

Noxema Ultimate Clear Anti-Blemish Daily Scrub: A very mild exfoliator perfect for sensitive skin types. It says a daily scrub but I use it twice a week to get rid of the dead skin and it's anti-bacterial so keeps the breakouts at bay. It has that tingly sensation which I personally enjoy =D but might be a put off for others. 

DermiVe Daily Protecting Moisturizer: I cannot rave enough about this baby ! It's oil free, non-comedogenic, contains hyaluronic acid and an SPF of 20. I was introduced to it by my dermatolgist and ever since I've fallen in love with it. It makes my skin feel super hydrated and elastic without being greasy. It's so light weight yet so moisturizing I cannot even explain ! Also it restores and maintains the protective skin barrier. 

Clarisonic Mia 1: Well I guess I don't need to say anthing about this at all =P but, it literally pulls out every bit of dirt or makeup from the pores leaving the skin unbelievably clean and smooth. 

Lush Mask of Magnimity: It's a deep cleansing mask, whenever I am in a mood to pamper myself, I use this ! It smells like after eight chocolate (YUMM..!! =P ). It practically draws all the impurities out of your skin. 

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil: A spot treatment for those blemishes and occasional breakouts. 

That's about it for my hair, body & skin care favourites. Let me know what were your favs by commenting below =D.
