Skincare Round-Up!Today I just wanted to talk about all things Skincare. I would just like to take a few minutes of your time to talk to you about some new products I've been trying as well as some #holygrail items.
Botanics Toner: I have been using this for a while now and this is, in fact, my 2nd bottle!! I find it to be really good and it doesn't make my skin feel tight or dry which is a good thing! I use it after cleansing as I don't want to use up my Origins Toner too quickly! I also love the fact that they're all natural and use flowers from Kew Gardens! How cool! 8-)
Nuxe Reve De Miel Hand Cream I got this in my first Love Me Beauty Box and I have to say, I REALLY love it!! It sinks in really well, doesn't leave my hands sticky so for me, a definite winner!!!!!
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Concentrate This is new to me and I have to say, I'm loving it! It's quite different in appearance to say my Trilogy Rosehip Oil (read my #holygrail post to find out more!) or even my Botanics Serum, as to me, it's like Aloe Vera. Which I'm sure is in this! I put it on after cleansing but before my moisturiser just squeezing out a few drops onto my hands and then applying to my face. Afterwards, my face feels very soft, smooth and most importantly, hydrated!
Botanics All Bright Refreshing Eye Roller This is a new addition to my set. Eye cream in general is a must have for me now!! I know when I haven't used it and then it's all I can think about! This one is brill because it has a little roller attachment on the end of it which I use to dispense the product onto my under eye area. The cream itself seems to be the colour of concealer which is pretty handy!
Origins A Perfect World Moisturiser I got this in a set for my Birthday, after having a free facial at my local counter a few weeks before. I have to say, this brand, like nothing else, has helped turn my face around. Having gone from oily/combination to dry/dehydrated, I was struggling to find products which worked! Thank goodness for Origins! I LOVE this brand and cannot see myself straying from them anytime soon!
Origins High potency Night-A-Mins This was also in the set I received for my Birthday and I have to say I'm loving it just a tiny bit! It has a slight orange scent, which I'm kinda in love with. I love anything with a scent, especially a night cream as I think it helps you to drift off at night. It sinks in very easily and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and moisturised.
Mary Jean Body Moisturiser - I've had this Vitamin Rich Body Cream for a while now but am only just getting round to sharing it with you! >.< It is a very intense, hard working moisturising cream loaded with Aloe Vera for hydration, Seabuckthorn Oil for skin elasticity and Borage Seed Oil for skin conditioning. It smells like oranges and is a dream to apply as you need only the smallest amount. Like I said it is very powerful and works very hard on dry skin, you only need the smallest amount of it and it goes to work leaving you with smooth skin which is hydrated and ready to work! I've re-discovered it recently and am very happy I have done!
The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Butter - Now this one came to me at the beginning of the year after I wrote a post about 'Surviving Without Water' for 12 days! >.< I was gifted a few goodies from The Body Shop - including my #holygrail cleansing oil! (I also received the Drops of Youth Serum in this goodie bag)
I am sad to have to admit that this is now empty. Yes, I finished every.last.drop. of this amazing body butter. I am waiting for it to be re-gifted to me but whilst I wait, I may as well tell you about it! This amazing body butter smelt incredible, first off. Is it just me that walks around The Body Shop store smelling all the body butters.....come on.......admit you do it too......No!? Ok then....well I love them and this one I one of my new favourites. It goes on so smoothly and sinks in effortlessly, leaving my skin super smooth and smelling incredible!! I highly recommend you check them out as there's bound to be a scent you'll love!
Origins Antioxidant Cleanser with White Tea. I have been using this with my Magnitone for a good few months now and I have to say I love it! It is very frothy and lathers up beautifully when I cleanse my face in the morning (with my Magnitone). It leaves my face feeling nicely soft, smooth and most importantly, cleansed. My face doesn't feel stripped/tight after use and I then can continue with my skincare routine.
Heaven Skincare by Deborah Mitchell I have only been using this skincare for a few weeks, but I have to say I really love it! All natural and smelling great, it works hard to cleanse, moisturise and clarify my skin. I am not left with tight skin which has been stripped of all its goodness, instead my skin is soft, hydrated and plumped. All ready for the next stage in y routine. I love the scents of the moisturiser - primarily lavender which when used at night, helps to promote sleep. If you want natural skincare which leaves your skin happy, I suggest you check out the Heaven Skincare line! Your skin will thank you!
Trilogy Cleansing Balm - Another #holygrail product for me! This magical balm magically melts away all traces of mascara, eyeshadow and eyeliner leaving me without the tell-tale panda eyes I used to suffer from before I found this magical balm! I am so pleased I got to trial this as I now wonder what else I would be using to remove all my eye make-up. I can't imagine life without it to be honest.....that's how highly I regard this cleansing balm. Go try it for yourself and let me know how much you love it!
So there you have it, my skincare recommendations! I hope I've shown you a few new items and perhaps I love some of the same products as you! What are your skincare recommendations?? Do you have suggestions as to what I'm missing?!?! Let me know, I'm all for talking about everything Skincare related! xoxo
