Can't get through January without it...

Ever since The Body Shop started hiking the price of its iconic Body Butter at a faster rate than our monthly Oyster cards, we've been looking for a suitable alternative. It finally arrived two weeks ago in the guise of J.R. Watkins Apothecary Vanilla Dry Oil Body Mist. Admittedly, it doesn't have the luxurious rich texture of a body butter but it does the same job. This dry oil sprays onto legs and arms and rubs in super-quickly without leaving any residue on our hands. If a spray's not your bag then consider the Lemon Cream Shea Butter. It's a fabulous rich hand, foot or body butter than smells of lemon meringue pie and also passes the rubs-in-fast test and kept our cuticles flake-free (and believe us, we've tried everything). The best bit? The products cost a shade over £5 and aren't tested on animals. Yay!
Find them in your local pharmacy or call 02380 460600 for stockists.

What's your can't-do-without-it beauty product?

I am a big fan of the Body Shop and yes,I hate the price increases.Not to mention that the closest Body shop to me is at Hartsfield Airport(second biggest one in the world)So that includes parking and all the hassles of going to an airport!!!
I love Olay Regenerist,cant live without it!
