Comfort and Joy
Oh my - what's this? Oh right it's the first post of February - on the 11th of said month. Apologies to avid readers of Free Her Desire, this is mostly due to being back at work, which has left me knackered, and when I get in I can barely stay awake to watch tv, never mind blog. Meh. I also have a little stye under my eyelid, which popped up over the weekend, I've not really been wanting to put make up on as I don't want to make it worse, so I've not been able to do posts that involve me wearing make up. This has been rather annoying, as I bought some Sleek eyelashes a few weeks ago, and I cannot wait to do a wee review of them on here. They are so sixties, and stunning.
Anyways - moving on, it's the horrible time of year where the Christmas festivities are over and we're left struggling through the rest of winter. By the time February comes, most resolutions have fallen by the wayside, and spending (and drinking ;)) bans tend to be over. One skincare resolution that I started a few months back was to use body lotions as soon as I stepped out the shower, the difference to my skin has been amazing. You can read my heroes post here. I do find that at nighttime I like to put a heavier cream on over night for an extra boost. I had received this Comforting Night Butter (£10.25, here) from the Sanctuary's Sleep collection as part of a gift set last christmas, and as soon as I finished it I had to buy the full sized one. I LOVE this product, it honestly smells like Black Orchid by Tom Ford, which is my signature scent - I'm pretty sure auld Tom must have had me in mind when he made it. Also, can we just take a moment to think about how great Tom Ford looks for his years.......wow.
This cream is super moisturising, but doesn't feel like it takes too long to be absorbed by your skin - for this reason it sometimes sneaks its way into my day time skincare routine. The blend of oils used to make this butter are blended to promote sleep, and relax muscles, I can't say I have noticed feeling more relaxed when I use this, but as I've said the smell is beautiful.
My only complaint I would have about this is that the tub is quite small for the £10.25 price, maybe I'm just being greedy though - as I would love a never ending tub of this body butter.
