'Everyday Hair' Tutorial | Video

I've been getting requests to do a tutorial for my hair for somewhere in the realm of 5-6 years, according to my tumblr archive (I was shocked that I'd even had my tumblr for that long, if I'm honest), so this is slightly overdue. Hopefully it's not a complete anti-climax.
It's just a basic overview of how I get my day-to-day relaxed curl look, with some tips on how to deal with a fringe/bangs if you don't want to curl them.

As well as the basic tutorial, I've also included an overview of some of the products I'm currently using, and they're all linked in the info box over on YouTube (click here to open it up there if you can't access the player properly).

Body Shop Sorbets in Strawberry and Moringa | Product Review

'What on earth is a body sorbet?!' was pretty much my reaction when I first spotted these popping up in the blogosphere. Body butter, sure. Body soufflé, even. But body sorbet? I was immediately curious, and just had to pick some up when I was in The Body Shop a few weeks ago.
Judging by the fact that there are two different scents of the product in the pictures for this post, I'm thinking you can guess what my reaction was - love. Pure, obsessive, irrevocable love.
The texture is - and I apologise, in advance, for saying this - like sorbet. Almost a matte-gel formula. Deliciously smooth, on the skin. Incredibly moisturising.
 My skin is always a little dry, when I've been out in the sun, but a couple of weeks of body sorbet has seriously boosted its hydration, and I can't remember the last time I was this impressed with a body butter/lotion/cream. My only real complaint was that it takes a little longer than I'd like to be fully absorbed into the skin, but then it doesn't leave a residue once it is, so it's not much of a criticism.
As for the scents, the strawberry was my first purchase, but it might be a little sickly for some, as it's quite strong. The 'moringa', on the other hand, whilst being quite a heavy scent - similar to jasmine or gardenia - lingers only subtly throughout the day; enough to keep you feeling fresh, but not so much that it's overpowering.
The Body Shop body sorbets are available for £8 from their stores, nationwide, or online (here for the strawberry, here for the moringa, and here to browse the full range).
Have you tried any of the 'body sorbet' range? What's your favourite product to save dry summer skin?
