There is nothing like snuggling up under your favourite blanket, with your slippers on and a mug of hot chocolate to relax while enjoying a good book/new mag/the latest episode of Girls - especially when it is chilly out! These comforts are so enticing, that we thought we'd share their equivalents in the beauty world. After all, there are a slew of beauty products out there that will make you feel all warm and cosy inside as well as making you look amazing!
A warm mug of quality cocoa is a real mood booster when it is cold and wet and your regular coffee just ain't gonna cut it. The thought of this sugary sweet treat makes you happy before you've even grabbed your wallet and dashed out to your nearest café. For a sweet treat that will make your heart beat a little faster, every time you glance down at your hands, you can't go past Kiss Nail Dress Nail Stickers. These easy to use press on nail stickers give you instant art with no drying time and come in heaps of designs - there is one to suit your every mood!
The pillowy softness of a new pair of slippers is out of this world! Warm and cosy, put these babies on when you get home after a long day at work and instantly feel better. For an instant comfort boost to your face you can't go past benefit's total moisture facial cream. The rich, creamy moisturiser helps your skin retain its natural moisture content, allowing the ideal level of hydration. Scrumptious mango butter helps keep this cream as-rich-as-can-be to keep your skin feeling its finest this winter. Massage onto a freshly cleansed face to feel your most naturally replenished, morning and night!
A fresh bunch of flowers
A fresh bunch of flowers not only makes you feel grand (especially if they were given as a gift!) but they also breathe life into your home, wherever they are placed. Fragrance has the power to evoke many different moods and if you need a little spring put back in your step this chilly season, why not try a new perfume? For a playful and electrifying scent we are loving Fendi's new foray into fragrance with Fan Di Fendi. Floral notes of Damascena rose, yellow jasmine, tuberose and patchouli will make you feel like you are carrying your favourite bouquet around with you all day, whilst pear, blackcurrant, tangerine, pink peppercorns and leather round out the sumptuous scent. Delightful!
Your most cuddly blanket
The definition of comfort is without a doubt your most warm and cuddly blanket! Wrap yourself up in one of these and feel as cosy as when you were little! For skin that is as good as it was when you were in prep, wrap your face in a Facial Fresh Treatment Mask. Depending on which mask you choose, your skin will be enhanced with a mix of pharmaceuticals and botanicals that address a wide range of skin concerns. To use, simply place the mask on your face, use fingertips to smooth and press it close to your skin. Leave mask on for 15 minutes (where you can snuggle under your blanket with a glass of wine!) before removing and tossing away, leaving your skin feeling ultra-comforted!
We can't talk about comforts without including a piping hot bowl of chicken soup (homemade of course!) Chicken soup is so comforting because it nourishes your bod during winter and is really the only thing you crave when you have the sniffles! For a little miracle drop, that is as good for you as chicken soup when you are on the go and don't have a bowl of the steamingly good stuff at hand, you have to try Olea Olive Leaf Drops by Comvita. These amazing supplement drops provide you with 400% more antioxidant power than an equal amount of Vitamin C, they have double the power of Green Tea extract and 30 times more antioxidants than an equal amount of the highest quality virgin olive oils! Now that is a flu-fighting product if ever we saw one!
