Natural Beauty Picks from Holland & Barrett.

I recently wrote a post about Holland & Barrett's Big Beauty Swap (post here). After writing that post it really got me thinking about the products I use and what the ingredients could mean for my body. After flicking through H&B's website for a while, I chose some products that I'd like to try. So here are my picks from Holland & Barrett's Big Beauty Swap.
Burt's Bees has always been a favourite of mine. I've been obsessed with their lip products since I was in school, but I've never tried the lip tinted balms before. This one is a lovely pinky-peach colour and is perfect for wearing on no make-up days. I've always used the tester of the hand cream from Burt's Bees when I've been passing in Boots. So I took this opportunity to pick up the Almond & Milk hand cream - if you're a fan of marzipan like me, you will LOVE this stuff.
I then chose a few things that looked interesting. I've always been fascinated by these natural deodorants so I really wanted to try the Salt of the Earth deo stick. I also grabbed some more bath salts, which are my ultimate relaxing bath-time treat. I love adding salts to any bubble bath to help relax me just that little bit more. My other random pick was a facial moisturiser from a brand called Sukin. I'd never heard of them before, but I read the reviews of this moisturiser and decided I needed to try it. I'm happy to say so far, so good - expect a full review soon.
Finally I picked up so of the Dr Organic range. I've tried a few things from this range in the past so I knew what to expect, but I couldn't wait to try some different products. I chose the Virgin Coconut Oil Moisture Melt Body Oil, which is solid coconut oil that you heat up and moisturise with. I love cooking with coconut oil and this smells incredible, I can't wait to try it out on my skin. I also picked up two products from the Rose Otto range. I got the Bath Oil and Skin Toner, both of which smell amazing. I've been using the toner daily and I love the scent and the cooling sensation it gives. I'm saving the bath oil for my house move, I think it will de-stress me when unpacking is driving me mad. Lastly, I went with the Virgin Olive Oil Body Scrub, I love scrubs and I love olive scented products - what's not to love?
