currently use steam cream moisturiser and whatever shampoo and conditioner is on offer in home bargains. I am v lazy and tend to wash my face in the shower with just water and moisturise every few days. Just wondered considering I am not going to get ny less lazy (I know this I have tried so many times) what would be good, I like natural stuff, henna my straight quite good condition hair so dont need anything mega oily. my skin is a bit dry at times (which is not suprising since I only remember to out moisturiser on it when it is tingly dry) so anyone know of a good (lazy) routine that i coulddo with some lovely products, I like the smell of lush stuff and things like burts bees or natral oils.
God that was rambly sorry.

I've recently started using coconut oil as a moisturiser both for face and body and love it. The other brilliant thing I've started using thanks to MN is the Bravura Dermaflannel. I've been using it less than 2 weeks and this followed by the coconut oil has made the biggest difference to my skin ever. And the Dermaflannel uses nothing but the flannel itself and water so is v natural.

is it solid or oil? where would you get it from?

also my chest got burnt a few years ago and has gone all red and dry with deep lines on ever since, think a bot deidre barlow, would coconut oil help with that?

pure will be in a solid form

i use this sort

i think it would help with the skin on your chest, its improved my skin tone all over my body loads and also really helped with the look of my stretchmarks

i swear by it. i do the OCM with it as well

I use and rate Superdrug Vitamin E face oil and the Extraordinary hair oil (can't remember who it's by - maybe L'Oreal?).

Remus do you use extraordinary oil with straighteners? I love Argan oil, currently Lee Stafford (on offer at Clothes show in Dec) and also using straightening spray. But if I could use Ex oil for everything it would be handy. Tried coconut oil on hair last week, jury's still out, and tricky to wash out of my thick hair.

I do. It's fine - just avoid the roots. I put it on after a bath in the evening and then before straightening in the morning.

Thanks Remus, think I'll get some then but will try to resist until my current supplies run out.

There's another thread on S&B about the Dermaflannel. You can have a look on there if you want to find out how people are finding it. The thread is just called 'Dermaflannel'. I love it.
