This is part two of my ‘the best of 2013’ series! I realise it looks as though The Body Shop have sponsored me to do this post but that’s definitely not the case, I do genuinely love their products and wouldn’t want to live without any of these beauties!

Above you can see my ‘holy grail’ face routine and although I tend to try out new products I will always come back to using these. I rate these body shop products over and above any higher end alternatives I’ve tried out too and I love the bonus of them not breaking the bank! They just seem to work perfectly in conjunction with each other and with my skin type (combination), and I’ve been using most of them for well over a year now. In Particular, the seaweed toner and facial wash of which I would highly recommend to everyone with a combination/ oily skin type as it works wonders at balancing it out, removing excess oil and is just so lovely and refreshing to use.

I posted about the Clinique cleansing balm and Clarins face tanning cream in my Dear santa | Beauty edition wish list post and as soon as I received and started using them both I instantly fell in love! I’ll definitely be doing a full review of them within the next few weeks once I’ve been using them for a bit longer, but from the first two weeks I really cannot find fault!

Do you have any face products that particularly stood out for you this year? Stay tuned for the body and hair ‘best of 2013’ posts!
