Whole Foods goodies

Since my exams took place in central London I popped into whole foods (it is like a compulsion, every time I'm in central i just have to go through whole foods before hading home). And of course I drifted to the beauty section of the store to pick up some treats.

I was suffering withdrawal from my rose water so simply had to have it, even though I still have to other perfectly good toners, ah the power of habits.

I don't know what it is about travel sizes but I just can't resist them. I've not tried Bentley organic before so hope it's good and if not it is only a small bottle. Salt of the earth deodorant is really good and I like to have a deodorant with me when flying so the small size is really handy.

Now to the fun items. I love Pacifica. Their candles and solid perfumes are really good. I only use solid perfumes during the day in the summer as alcohol based perfumes can react with the sun on your skin. This time I picked up Brazilian mango grapefruit (the smell reminds me of pineapple and pina colada) and Tahitian gardenia (has some similar notes to monoi de tahiti but not quiet the same, if you like monoi its a strong possibility that you will like this). Both are tropical summery scents and they last about four hours.

Another new discovery for me is Copra carrot oil. I think it's a french company judging by the label. I know carrot oil is used to help with tanning, I got it because of the antioxidants and some natural UV protection (it is not an spf substitute though). This is a macerated oil (in the base of sunflower oil) and also has vitamin e. On the bottle is says that it is good for all skin types, suitable for face and body and to apply before sunbathing. I've been using this on my face for the past two weeks as a moisturiser and so far I'm very pleased. I'll give it a few more weeks before I give my final verdict.
I guess I broke my resolution of not buying any more skincare before I run out. I blame whole foods, it makes it so hard to resist new products.
