Boozy Beauty

28 May 2014

Ever fancied washing in daiquiri, exfoliating with wine or moisturising with mojitos? Before you think we've taken our cocktail obsession too far, we're not actually suggesting that you waste good vodka by showering with it.

We're talking about the beauty products that have been expertly blended to match our favourite tipples.

You might be surprised by the number of drinks that have inspired body butters, shower gels and even lippy and nail varnish. But hey, how else are you going to justify a cosmo at 7am in the morning?!

These are ten of my fave boozy beauty products....

1. The Cocktail Party Gift Set by Philosophy - £18

Lips like a melon daiquiri and skin like a limey margarita, what's not to love?

Buy it here.

2. Irish Creme Lipstick by 'Tini Beauty - £11

Unfortunately this lippy doesn't taste like Baileys, but it's a beautiful shade and comes from an entire range of booze inspired lip colours and nail varnishes.

Buy it here.

3. Crushed Cabernet Scrub by Caudalie - £21.50

I first discovered grape seed exfoliators in the Napa Valley at the end of the last year and I've been hooked ever since. This body scrub claims a slimming action and anti-cellulite properties to boot, so it's definitely better for your thighs than a glass or five of red.

Buy it here.

4. Raspberry Champagne Duo by Bliss - £23.20 (reduced from £29)

Bliss are renowned for their fabby products (oh and their Chelsea spa comes highly recommended from me too, try and see Heather for a massage!) and this soapy suds and body butter set has everything you need for super soft skin that smells of raspberry champagne. Heavenly.

Buy it here.

5. Harder, Harder Pina Colada Lip Gloss by Anatomicals - £2.49

From the 'Complete & Utter Glosser' range. I know a few of those.

Buy it here.

6. Apple Martini Bath Salts by Bath House - £4.95

If you've never bathed with bath salts then prepare to have a Chandler from Friends moment, the silky water gets pretty addictive. Add in the scent of apple martinis and you may never want to leave the bathroom again.

Buy it here.

7. Coconut Daiquiri Body Cream by Boozi Body Care - £7.95

This intensive cream smells like the best kind of holidays.

Buy it here.

8. Tequila Sunrise Lip Gloss by New CID Cosmetics - £10.60

Not only an awesome shade, this compact has a light up mirror so it's perfect for touch ups in dark bars.

Buy it here.

9. Mojito Soap Set by Malin & Goetz - £23

Rum soap, we all need more rum soap.

Buy it here.

10. Coca-Cola Red Nail Varnish by OPI - £9.95

Prefer a simple vodka and coke? You need to see the nine shades in the new Coca-Cola x OPI Collection which is being released next month! You can even have Fanta coloured nails. Now why isn't Fanta used more often in cocktails? I may have to do something about that...
