Favourites of 2013 Pt.3 - Skin/Hair/Bodycare Favourites

Hiya lovelies!

Here goes my last 'Faves of 2013' post. In case you haven't seen the previous ones yet, you can have a read here and here. Today's post is all about the skincare, hair care and body care related items I loved using last year. Let's start with hair care. My Tangle Teezer is something I have to have with me at all times. I've had it for two years and it looks a bit worse for wear but I can't imagine not brushing my hair with this little gem. My other two hair saviours have been (and still are) the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle and the Lee Stafford Hair Treatment For Hair That Never Grows, both make my hair feel super soft and nourished and smell lovely, too.

Skincare-wise Origins has to be my favourite brand of 2013 (Soz Soap&Glory, I'll always love you!). I got the Drink Up 10 Minute Mask for my birthday and it's a real treat for dry skin. I then purchased GinZing, which instantly became a staple in my skincare routine, it also has the most amazing smell so keep you eyes peeled for a review. My skincare favourites wouldn't be complete without a bit of S&G, the No Clogs Allowed mask does exactly what is says on the tin, it clears your skin up in no time. Lastly, a product the lovely Nuala introduced me to, the Superdrug own brand Hot Cloth Cleanser. Read my review here to find out why you should give it a go.

The last category of my 2013 favourites is body care. Silly me forgot to include some Lush bath bombs in the pictures, a product I started loving only last year. I love a good bath and another item that had to be featured is the S&G Sugar Crush scrub. I think they've changed the packaging again but it's still the same sweet, citrussy scent I adore so much. It's also quite gentle on your skin and leaves it feeling moisturised and smelling good enough to eat. Another luxurious product you don't have to spend a fortune on is the Rituals foaming shower gel. It smells absolutely amazing and using it feels like you're hugging a fluffy cloud. I can't rate them enough, if you haven't been to one of their lovely stores yet, I urge you to pay them a visit!
As you might know I'm obsessed with the likes of Abercrombie, Jack Wills, Hollister, and Superdry so I obviously own the entire Gilly Hicks body care range, too (told you I'm obsessed). Their mists are so longlasting, the Victoria's Secret body mists, albeit lovely, have nothing on them. The body lotion feels really luxurious as well. The same goes for the Bath and Body Works body lotion I bought from Stacey's blog sale. I didn't expect anything as they're fairly cheap but it's one of the most moisturising products I've ever used, big thumbs up!

Two last random favourites, first is OPI's Nail Envy which I have used weekly, I haven't had a broken nail in ages (touch wood)! It's a true miracle worker. For my birthday my parents got me a bottle of the Taylor Swift Wonderstruck fragrance, a sickly sweet scent which doesn't break the bank but still smells absolutely ah-mazing.

Soo, that's it lovelies, my 2013 Favourites are set in stone. I'm super excited to discover a bunch of new favourites throughout 2014 and can't wait to share my discoveries with you along the way :) One last time, I hope you enjoyed reading and don't forget to leave the links to your Favourites posts in the comment section below. Thanks for reading, well done if you've actually made it to the end of this post!


  1. Lots of lovely items. You can't beat a bit of Soap and Glory and OPI.



  2. We literally have so many favourites in common! I love how you've separated all of your favourites into different categories, I found choosing mine so tricky so this is a great idea! Lovely post. Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment is fab! :) xx


  3. I love the Lee Stafford hair treatment & Sugar Crush! I now also want to try a tangle teaser, I've held off for too long :P

  4. I need to try the Soap and glory face products, I'm always hearing great things and the no clogs allowed mask sounds great!

    Loving your blog by the way, now following on bloglovin
