Friday Favourite: Aloe Heat Lotion AKA Migraine Melter & Stress Saviour!

I suffer with migraines, well jel aren't you?!

My migraines stem from my shoulders and neck and are brought on by stress and hormones ( blooming Oestrogen!). 

I've got absolute boulder shoulders that are constantly tight and knotty.  As I don't have a small fortune to spend on an On-call Massage Therapist, if such a person actually exists, I rely on the amazing Aloe Heat Lotion. 

It is a rich emollient lotion containing deep-heating agents, along wth the penetrating power of aloe vera, it will sooth away stresses and strains of daily life. 

I apply it to my shoulders and back of my neck just under my occipital bone, (yeah I know my biology shiz!) and it soothes and warms my muscles in a jiffy.  The menthol aroma is so soothing too, ideal for clearing blocked noses and sinuses.

You can also apply a small amount to your temples in nice circular motions to relieve any tension headaches.

The Heat Lotion is obviously amazing for after sports, a gym session, if you suffer from achy joints, bad backs, or if you are ever feeling under the weather and all achy :( . 

This stays in my gym bag and I apply a small amount to my joints and lower back before my Ashtanga yoga sessions, it helps to warm them up which really helps with my Asanas.

The Beauty of a BB Creme

I was always dubious about BB crème's after having lots of disappointing dabbles with tinted moisturisers, they just didn't give the coverage or finish that I wanted- frustrating!

SO glad I gave this beauty a try! Aloe BB Crème is an Aloe Vera based Beauty Balm.  It applies like a delicate dream, gives medium coverage to your skin and leaves you with  a flawless finish Beyoncé would be envious of!

It also provides an SPF of 20, without that white residue, other SPF containing make-up can leave- who wants slimy white skin...not me!

My skin feels fresh and light in this BB crème,  as opposed to heavy and clogged when wearing a foundation. 

Another benefit of this crème and the full Flawless by Sonya range is that it is NEVER tested on animals! Yay! Wins all round!

Friday Favourite - Aloe Vera Hand & Face Soap

Yes it's a Hand & Face Soap, Yes, that is a Gillete Venus Razor beside and YES I use these 2 to shave my legs and I get THE smoothest shave and with no irritation!

This one night when I was lucky enough to have the time and energy to make an effort with myself, I ran out of my usual shaving gel (typical!) and had nearly used all of the hubby's, (sssshhhh don't tell him) and this little beauty of a multi-use product was sitting on the side of my bath, so I thought I'd give it a whirl for shaving my legs. I was so surprised that I didn't get any razor burn or irritation afterwards, I usually get itchy red rash but not this time, no siree!  

I don't know why I was surprised as obviously the Aloe Vera inside the soap is a natural healer and soother  and this wash lathered up like a dream!. 

So if you didn't already use this as a hand soap, a face soap, bubble bath, make up cleanser, baby wash.....the list goes on///then give it a whirl as your shaving,  medium???.
