Skincare Smoothies + GIVEAWAY *CLOSED*

Who would’ve thought that a favourite breakfast would have so much in common with a new skincare range? Ok, by now you know I’m a Johnson’s groupie hehehe. So when they told me they’re coming out with a brand new skincare range, that’s inspired by healthy smoothies, I was excited.

Johnson’s Vita-Rich Smoothies range is like treating my body to dessert. But, let’s be real, there’s always one area, in particular, that needs more TLC than others. For me, the worst thing about dressing for summer is getting all cute in a dress, then worrying that my feet are looking too look ashy and well, unfit for those beautifully jeweled sandals or strappy heels. So this new range has come just in time just in time for summer and showing off my cute, well-moisturised, smooth, summer feet 🙂

I’m currently busy using the following:

Vita-Rich Smoothies Body Cream

A cream that’s actually yummy pudding on my skin. Its consistency is also like a thick yogurt which adds to my feeling that I’m treating my skin to some dessert. Its thickness lends itself nicely to my super dry skin and not needing a lot to cover my whole body. I won’t lie, when I first smelled it, I almost expected it to leave a bit of a sticky feel to my skin, but it goes on smoothly and doesn’t leave a greasy residue.

Vita-Rich Smoothies Indulging Body Wash

This one’s my favourite product from the range so far. Maybe because I’ve been using the same kinds of shower gels so this one’s a nice change to have during shower time, and it smells so delish. I don’t have much time or privacy in the shower these days (try having a 2-year-old follow you everywhere), so it’s nice to have a little indulgence whenever I can. Since I already have dry skin, I like that it doesn’t completely strip my skin, leaving it even drier.

Vita-Rich Smoothies Comforting Body Lotion & Indulging Body Lotion

If a butter is a bit too thick for you and your skin, the range does have two lotion options; one with yogurt concentrate, honey and oats and the other with yoghurt, peach and coconut. It smells just as yummy as the Comforting Body Lotion but has more of a nutty scent – I guess we have the coconut to thank for that. Makes me feel like I’m on a tropical holiday.

    My legs are the driest part of my body and I’ve spent all my life hiding them behind long skirts, dresses and jeans and because of my dull skin I ended up leaning towards dark and drab colours to match my dull skin. For the first time in my life I want to live and experience life fully this December. Already been collecting bright and short cute outfits for the festive season and having my legs match my newly adapted lifestyle would truly cement this new chapter in my life. I just want to be happy, bright and let life live through me for the first time in my life, I need it.💕💕

    Our Skin absorbs the majority of what we put onto it. We have all seen the side effects when products don’t work well with our skin. My dry problem area that I would like Johnson’s Vita Rich Smoothie’s to help keep moisturised this summer are my feet. I love that this moisturiser provides plenty of hydration, softens supple skin and replenishes the body’s nutrients all in one small dose. Better for me and better results for my skin. I love that it smells so yummy aswell. #letyournaturalbeautyshine I would absolutely love to win this smooth yummy smelling products.

    My legs and feet need some serious TLC. Being on my feet all day teaching takes a toll on my heals and this change of season has sucked the life (moisture) from my legs 🙂 Summer is on its way in full force – I want to feel my best! Plus having a yummy dessert like product never hurt anyone 🙂

    My dry area is my back. I had alot of acne on my back when I was a teen and still get some today. In the winter we tend to neglect some areas when it comes to moisturising. I did that to my back and shoulders. Now I’m regretting it. My back is so dry and it’s already getting warm enough to wear those cute shoulder and back showing dresses and tops😥 I’m really feeling insecure about my back but im working on getting it better. Johnsons Vita Rich smoothie would be the perfect product to get my back summer ready.

As its summer now and I love wearing shorts, short dresses and skirts I dont want to sit down and worry about whether or not my skin is starting to crack or not. and then follows my elbows and knees.
