December always goes by quickly. There's so many parties to go to, people to see, gifts to buy, and to do lists to check off. We're all very busy celebrating and reflecting on the past twelve months.
So I have put together a week of beauty favourites from the last year. I've gone through and selected my 2015 beauty favourites from all of my monthly favourites posts.
Today I'm talking about my hair, body, and nail favourites. On Wednesday I'll talk about my skincare faves. And on Friday I'll chat about my makeup favourites.
I'm also going to include other blog posts where I've mentioned these products, in case you want to read more. They'll be listed under each product review. There's a lot to cover, so let's get started!
Dry Shampoo // Acure Organics
I adore this dry shampoo. It effectively removes excess oil, giving my hair a slightly matte look. It also gives my hair lots of volume and texture, making it an all in one product. It's been wonderful in helping me simplify my hair routine.
Volume Conditioner // Acure Organics
My hair is very thin and flat so I'm always looking for ways to boost volume. This is wonderful because it hydrates and nourishes my hair while giving me just enough volume. Plus the minty scent is so refreshing!
Coconut Soak // Herbivore Botanicals
This is a really natural blend of coconut milk powder and vanilla essential oil. It's a very gentle soak that softens and soothes your skin. I used this almost every week in the bath and as a hand and foot soak.
Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub // Giovanni Cosmetics
This is hands down my favourite body scrub ever. The sweet, chocolate scent is heavenly. The sugar acts as a gentle exfoliant. And the warming effect is just what I need during the colder months. Giovanni absolutely nailed it with this one.
Lavender Hand Cream // Andalou Naturals
If you've been reading the blog for a while, you'll know I adore these hand creams. They're super hydrating and nourishing, not to mention affordable and gmo free! I couldn't survive without these.
Clementine Ginger Energizing Body Lotion // Andalou Naturals
Just like the Andalou hand creams, the lotions are my favourite. They're the only body lotions that thoroughly hydrate my skin. They come in a diverse range of scents that are all beautiful. They were an everyday essential throughout 2015.
Soothing Aloe Vera Deodorant Stick // Jason
Finding a natural deodorant isn't easy. There's so many to choose from, but most of them fall flat. But not this one. Jason isn't my favourite brand, but this deodorant is perfection. It's very effective and keeps me smelling fresh all day, the scent is light and natural, and there's no irritation!
Foot Butter // Rocky Mountain Soap Co.
I love a good foot butter, especially as the temperature drops. But they all have the same minty scent and there's very few that are absolutely fantastic. This one is the exception. The unique packaging is very convenient. The natural, earthy pine scent is perfect all year round. And the actual foot butter is intensely nourishing and hydrating. It's a win win all around!
Nail Polish Remover // Mineral Fusion
There aren't a lot of vegan nail polish removers on the market, and most of them suck. But this one doesn't. It easily removes my nail polish without drying our my nails or my hands. It's also pretty affordable, acetone free, and easy to find at most natural health shops.
