Best creams for very dry skin

Now that were well into the colder months, i don't know about you but my skin tends to get quite dry, with the cold weather, winds and central heating your skin needs a little extra tlc, so here are some of the creams i have found to be the best for dry to very dry skin...

La roche posay CICAPLAST BAUME B5 
I absolutely love the 'La roche Posay' brand, they have extremely high quality products at an affordable price, which you just can't beat.
This one is a soothing repair balm, which is suitable for very dry, sensitive, eczema and rosacea prone skin, it is also suitable for chapped lips.
The texture is quite thick but not quite a cream, its easy to blend however is better suited to a night cream, or at least left to dry before applying makeup.
It has natural antibacterial properties, and is non comedogenic so will not clog pores.
I first tried this brand a few years ago during the winter season my facial skin became very dry, chapped and sore with flaky patches.
I found this online and after a couple of uses my skin was back to normal, I always have this on hand whenever my skin gets super dry or irritated.

How to handle christmas alone?

Christmas is the time of year all about family, getting together with loved ones and enjoying 
one an-others company. 
However christmas is not like this for everyone, not everyone actually has family for whatever reason, and this time of year can be especially hard for those of us. 

For the last 4 years I have actually spent christmas alone due to not having any family, it may sound sad to some, but i actually manage to make this time alone enjoyable, sure i'd love to have a family, but the christmas's i've spent alone were a damn lot better than the ones i ever spent with my toxic family growing up. 

For those of you who may be spending christmas alone this year I thought i'd share with you some ideas on how to make your christmas alone enjoyable...

Lime Crime liquid lipsticks Review

I recently had a makeup sort out and found a lot of old boring lipsticks that I never use, which I threw away, however I was only left with 3 of my favourites, so I decided to treat myself to some new lipsticks.
I have never actually tried liquid lipstick before, I know I am so late to the trend!
My lips tend to get dry and chapped I'm that girl thats applying vaseline all day, so I wasn't sure if they would work for me.

Liquid lipsticks are everywhere, so naturally I wanted to give them ago, after much research I decided to go with Lime crime, not just because of the cute packaging although I am not gonna lie that did play a part, but also because they are cruelty free and offer a range of colours.
