December Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the products I loved the most in December. As usual, I picked my favourites from all the products I’ve reviewed this past month. Let’s start with the TOP 3, and there are a few honourable mentions below!

3rd place – Daily Defense Advanced Deep Conditioner With Argan Oil From Morocco
Runner-Up – 100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic

Daily Defense’s deep conditioner with argan oil is sooo good!
Superdrug’s glycolic toner has done wonders for my skin!

WINNER – Olay Anti-Wrinkle Firm & Lift Eye Renewal Gel

Olay’s Anti-Wrinkle eye gel is out of this world. One of the best eye products I’ve ever used!

Onto the honourable mentions! Superdrug’s Vitamin E Moisture Boost Facial Serum is amazing. It would have made the TOP 3 in most other months but I had too many awesome products to chose from this past month.

I like Asda’s and Sainsburys’ purple foam baths. Repurchase guaranteed! And there were a few great masks too – Global Beauty Care Anti Aging Collection Retinol Spa Treatment Mask is a great and effective face mask, Skin Treats Manuka Honey Revitalising Facial Sheet Mask was lovely to use, and Skin Treats Spirulina Renewing Sheet Mask was very enjoyable too!

Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try any of them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!

Daily Defense Advanced Deep Conditioner With Argan Oil From Morocco

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Daily Defense Advanced Deep Conditioner With Argan Oil From Morocco. I’m a huge fan of this brand, so I was over the moon when I found this deep conditioner for £1.49 at my local Home Bargains store.

How does it work? According to the instructions, simply use it after you’ve washed your hair and instead of your usual conditioner. Leave it on for 3 minutes before you rinse it out. And you’re supposed to use it 2-3 times per week.

I’ve been using this conditioner once a week since August, and I like it a lot. It makes my hair incredibly soft and silky, it doesn’t weigh my hair down and it’s just a great product to use. I’m glad I bought 2 of these conditioners (plus another 2 in a different scent) when I saw them at my local Home Bargains store.

If you’re interested, Daily Defense Advanced Deep Conditioner With Argan Oil From Morocco is available as 295ml. I paid £1.49.
