 winter beauty january pretty posh oh my gosh review blog survival kit
It's not just our livers which need a break in January, our skin does too.  So as the tinsel and twinkly lights come down, here are our top 5 recovery products to get your regime back on track.
korres lee stafford cocoa butter formula compeed burts bees review
Compeed Dry & Cracked Heel Overnight Cream - 75ml, £4.99 | Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil - Rosehip Fragrance 150ml, £9.99 | Lee Stafford Ubuntu Oils From Africa Moisturising Hair Butter 200ml, £12.99 | Burt's Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream, £9.99 | Korres Wild Rose Instant Brightening Mask, £6.99

A November/December of bad pedi habits- permanent high-heels or boots has left us with sore cracked heels and dry skin on our feet. Compeed's overnight cream works miracles for neglected trotters. Pop it on post bed-time bath (special attention to the cracked areas), apply fluffiest, comfiest socks and sleep those sores away.

Talking of dry skin, ramped up heating and roasting all of those chestnuts on the open fire can leave all over skin dry, raw and flaky and hair raggedy and feeling a little...crispy...?! Palmer's Therapy Oil is the ideal remedy to bring your skin's moisture back to perfection. Massage into problem areas as required- it smells super divine and indulgent too! To get the life back into your locks, Lee Stafford Ubuntu Oils From Africa Moisturising Hair Butter is a rich and intense remedy- we loved how easy it was to apply and how it boosted the shine and lustre in our hair, with each strand feeling like it has been individually moisturised.
Looking after those parts which people can see is perhaps most important- if not just to boost your own mood and confidence throughout January. Our two favourite products are Burt's Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream and Korres Wild Rose Instant Brightening Mask. Burt's Bees is a stellar favourite of ours, and as official hand cream junkies, their Almond and Milk is up there in our top handcream scents! Its uber moisturising qualities mean that your hands are left supple- perfect for winter hand holding.

Korres is a brand which is relatively new to our radar, however, a firm favourite! We love this brightening mask which will give your skin the boost it needs leaving a dewy and healthy glow, nourishing dry patches and smelling super sweet too. (Also try out the Korres Guava Body Butter- amazing for scaly legs and tummies!)
