Product review - The Body Shop Nutriganics Moisturisers

I am always on the search for products that make my skin look and feel great but one product that I always seem to stuggle with is Moisturiser!

Well that is no longer a problem! I recently popped in to The Body Shop to get some eye make-up remover and saw the Nutriganics range.  This range has been created to be used with the first signs of aging. Its an organic range which promises to reduces fine lines and wrinkles!

I didn't pick up these products for the anti ageing qualities but purely for the fact that it felt like it was going to leave my skin feeling really hydrated when I tried it on the back of my hand!
 I bought the trial size tubes of the Day and Night Smoothing Creams which come in 15ml and cost £5/6.00, you can buy full size 50ml tubes costing £13/15.00.
 The Smoothing Day Cream
Soothing Night Cream

I have been using these moisturisers now for a little while and can honestly say I am so happy with them, I have finished the trial sizes and re-purchased the full size tubes. My skin feels so soft and is completely hydrated. There are other items in the Nutriganics range that are on my list of must tries so watch this space!

Have you tried the Nutriganics range? What did you think?

Base coats & Top coats......Necessity?

This is an age old question, do I have to use a base coat and top coat?

The idea of using a base coat is that it will put a protective layer between the nail and the varnish, it should stop the varnish staining the nail plate and it will also give the varnish something to grip to.
Base coats can also be used to treat the nails, if you have dry, peeling, brittle nails there will be a treatment base coat for you.

Using a top coat will always give you a great shine to the finish of your varnish, it will also help to seal the varnish to the nail and make your manicure last longer.

No top coat can promise a guaranteed two week manicure as it comes down to how heavy handed you are with your nails! My mum for instance can keep nail varnish on for up to two weeks, me on the other hand (excuse the pun) can manage about three days!

I use OPI products and have done for the past eight years, professionally and personally I love their products and although I do try others I always end up going back to the good old Nail Envy base coat and the OPI quick dry top coat.

So to answer the question....Well no you don't have to but it will make a huge difference if you do!

What are your favourite Base coats and Top coats?
