My Latest Face Cream

My Latest Face Cream

I have always thought that when it comes to taking care of your skin, half the battle is keeping a daily routine and the other is using a great product. About two years ago my friends told me that the face cream I’d been using contained potentially carcinogenic ingredients. Since then I’ve been searching for a moisturiser that feels as nice on my skin as the old one did. I’ve tried many different brands and have finally stumbled on one that feels as good as my old fave without the potential carcinogen issue.

I started using Heal Gel about 6 months ago and it makes my skin feel great. It’s light, non greasy and easily absorbed. If you’re looking for a new moisturiser I’d really recommend it.

Lunch today consisted of a 7km run on the treadmill due to bad weather, followed by a quick stop at Platinum Sport. The new Nike Tech Fleece Hoodie was in store. It was so warm and snuggly and as there were only two left, I really didn’t stand a chance. Nike – 1 Willpower – 0

The BEST Hand Cream Ever

The BEST Handcream Ever

I wouldn’t have coped without this while we were at the snow. The chalet we stayed at had the most beautiful crystal clear water straight from the mountain, however, it really dried out your skin. I would have bathed in this if I could. Instead I had to settle for applying it 4 times a day. Not only is it non-greasy, the scent of the cream is gorgeous. Whenever I have given this as a gift people are instantly converted and find they can no longer use any other cream. It works best when you apply just before getting into bed.

Incidentally, the little butterfly is another Zuni Fetish. She represents beauty, transformation and rebirth.

And finally, to complete my look, here’s my beanie with the mandatory pom pom. I love the texture of the wool but, this is rather sedate compared to what was out there this season. People were wearing all kinds of funky head wear. There were even helmets with fluro orange and pink mohawks. Not quite my look but it’s that kind of thing that makes the snow fun. In fact, I nearly had an accident when I noticed a fab outfit on my way down the slope.

Here’s the back of my ski jacket. It’s down filled and super warm. Like all great snow jackets it has lots of secret compartments full of things like a bottle opener and a chamois for your goggles. Great iPod / iPhone pocket with headphone access too. I really love all my snow gear in case you can’t tell. 😉

I love these ski pants. They’re a little to big for me but I don’t mind, I always feel happy whenever I put them on. Also, I can easily fit two or three layers of thermals underneath and and I’ve got a great belt to cinch them in at the waist. I love the lace up back and all the pockets. Great for sunscreen, credit card, ID, trail maps, lip balm, water bottle…. You get the idea.
