Dove Skin Emergency Kit (coz it snows in March now eh?)

In my entire stay in UK, this is seriously the first time I have seen such frequent snow in London during March. It's like the weather's having a crazy trip that it doesn't want to recover from. Sometimes the sky's clear blue and the sun shining bright, when all of a sudden you see a whirlwind of flurries. Pure mental I tell you!

It really confuses the heck out of people whether to use rich body butters or light body lotions and the perfect mix for this transitional period I found is good old Dove! I have always been a fan of their body washes and hair products but never really been into their skin care and I have to say I am impressed. It's just so affordable yet of superb quality that when you compare it to pricey body lotions, it's unbelievable how much we tend to spend when we can get pretty much the same but for less.

The Dove Essential Nourishing Lotion is the perfect consistency in my opinion as it's highly hydrating but does not feel heavy on the skin or even like you have applied it all after a few minutes. This I am saying in a good way as although skin feels healthy and supple without any hint of dryness, you cannot detect the texture of the lotion at all. If getting into your clothes with a moisturised body is a pet peeve due to the mess involved, you need this one in your life.

The Dove Intensive Nourishing Lotion on the other hand is for very dry skin as it states on the bottle and is perfect for the super ignored legs and thighs that need a little more help. It sinks in quickly but leaves a protective layer making the skin of that area comfortable and not itchy or flaky for hours. I would use it for elbows, knees and feet as its that tiny bit more richer in texture. 

I had no idea Dove did hand creams! They look uber cute to be honest and have quickly become handbag favourites due to their travel friendly size. The Shea Butter one in particular is my favourite as it smells subtly of chocolate, just warm and delicious.

The Essential Nourishment one on the other hand has a neutral scent which I believe is perfect for guys and girls who prefer scent free products. Both absorb quickly into the skin but the Shea Butter one was a tad bit more hydrating and intensive I found that the other that's light and perfect for sweaty hands instead.

If you're under the weather too, treat yourself and your body to some nourishing treats instead of just sulking about it. You have to have faith that Spring will come, one day, slow and steady but it WILL. Fingers crossed.

Neom Sumptous Rose & Neroli Organic Reed Diffuser

If Springs being difficult in your country just like it is in the UK, instead greeting us with flurries and bouts of occasional full fledged snow in March, you need this latest Reed Diffuser by Neom to recreate Spring in your home. Sometimes you have to do a little DIY with the weather as well you see.

Simply shut the blinds and enjoy this deliciously fresh aroma in your living room and it will gradually transition you to Spring orchards while you totally forget about the dreadful weather outside, even if for a while!

The main ingredients in this particular one are Rose & Neroli. Neroli is an essential oil from the bitter orange tree and is citrusy of course with a hint of comforting, wholesome sweetness to it making is a superb aromatherapy experience even on it's own. Here however it is carefully blended with wild rose that is a treat for the senses for those who are a fan of the classic sweet scent.

Neom describe their Sumptous scent as comforting and heady, perfect for lifting spirits which I agree with. However I also feel it's quite clean at the same time so as not to leave you feeling Christmasy and Autumnal all over again, as that's not what we are looking for right now are we?

It's clean and fresh yet therapeutic and uplifting - one of the best Neom have come up till date! If candles make you feel like it's December, try Reed Diffusers to shake things up a little.
