My Winter Essentials 2016.

With Spring fast approaching, I thought that I would talk about my winter essentials. Although I don't have many essentials, these are the products and things, I just haven't been able to live without throughout winter.

The first product I just haven't been able to live without this winter is the *Beegood Honey & Wild Water Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing Water. Now if you know me by now, you'll know I just cannot get enough of Beegood products, they are one of my favourite brands and I just love their products. I've tried a few cleansing waters now but this has got to be my favourite. This cleansing water removes make-up, cleanses and tones and it leaves my face feeling refreshed and soothed and does not irritate it one bit. This product is quick and effective and is perfect if you don't have a lot of time and one of the best things about this product is it is delicate enough to use on the eye area, which you find most cleansing waters aren't. This product is packed with moisturising British wild flower honey, antiseptic propolis, brightening red algae and refreshing wild water mint. You also do not need any water when using this product as it leaves the skin clean, toned and refreshed, ready for moisturiser. I use this product morning and night and I apply it to a cotton wool pad and I sweep it over my face, eyes and neck and it leaves my skin feeling more awake and clean. The price tag is £10 for 100ml, which is a little pricey for a cleansing water however it is a lovely cleansing water and it has made my skin so much brighter. This product is free from parabens, synthetic colour, mineral oil, silicone, SLS/SLES.

Another thing that has got me through winter is my 'home sweet home' mug which has usually been filled with a cup of tea or hot chocolate.

The next essentials that have been very much needed is this *Ruby Cable Knitted Lambswool Bobble Hat & Scarf Set from SnoodyDo. My matching set is in the colour blue shadow/cream but it is also available in silver pink/cream. Composition: 80% Lambswool and 20% Nylon. The hat and scarf are made from a chunky yarn and this is why it has kept me very warm and cosy through winter. This matching set is very comfortable and it also features the SnoodyDo branded antique metal stud.  I have been able to wear this set with any outfit and I have had a lot of compliments on them. I have since realised that I have probably been wearing the hat wrong as I believe the antique metal stud is meant to go to the side however, I've been wearing it at the front and it has still been comfy. I would highly recommend this matching set as it is comfy, cosy and such good quality. I find with most hats and scarfs they can make my skin or head itch but these don't do that so I was very impressed and loved wearing them and I will continue to wear them until warmer weather approaches. At £54.99, they definitely aren't the cheapest of a hat and scarf set but it is fantastic quality and well worth the money. SnoodyDo also do hats and scarves for men, as well as ski hats. SnoodyDo have a lots of different designs for both men and women and so I would definitely recommend them. Check out their website here.

Of course I had to add a few photos of me wearing my matching hat and scarf set.

My last winter essential has been lighting candles. Candles have definitely become one of my obsessions and now I'm always burning a new one. This candle is from the company Partylite and it is from their Forbidden Fruits Scented Candle Trio and it is called Blackberry Boudoir. I have absolutely loved burning Partylite candles and there will be a review coming soon on my blog! Candles just make me feel so relaxed and they smell incredible and so they have been a winter essential for me.
