Holland and Barrett have a selection of goodies to get you ready for your Christmas and New Years parties and the first one I want to show you is the celebrity favourite Coconut Oil. Beloved product of selebs such as Miranda Kerr, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston (who mixes hers with rock salt to make a scrub - must try this!).
Since receiving this I am using it religiously, I use it on my legs and upper arms mostly as those are my driest areas and this is really helping them out. I know for a fact it's what I'll be using before I apply my wash off tan.
This stuff turns solid at a certain temperature, and the warmer your house, the softer it gets, mine is mostly solid at all times though.
Dig a little out and apply. It turns to oil as soon as it hits the skin and works really well.
My only disappointment with this is that to my nose it's virtually scentless, my husband says he thinks it smells of coconut but I can barely detect it. I'd love to smother myself in coconut scent if I could, but if you're not a fan of the scent this is perfect. It's £6.99 for 207ml and a little goes a very long way indeed. You can also eat on salads, use for cooking or as a hair conditioner. Very versatile!
Then there are a variety of supplements to help you to look gorgeous for your party. The Skin, Hair and Nails Formula (£7.69 for 60) are tablets containing Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Selenium to help support healthy hair, vibrant skin and strong nails. I've not been taking these long enough give an opinion yet but I have tried similar before and I think these supplements and these of this type make a marked difference to my nail and hair growth in particular.
Finally there's the Fat Metaboliser. A supplement to help support weight maintenance, when combined with excercise and a low fat diet. There's a 14 Day Diet Plan you can download from the website too. I can't review these as I've not been taking them... I'm just too lazy to remember ;)
I'll definitely be back for coconut oil, thats for sure!
