I’ve been using this Hylamide Booster Sensitive Skin Fix Serum for a while now and it’s been a really nice addition to my evening skincare routine when I want to also use a moisturiser. I mix between this, usually paired with the Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep night cream and also using the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate on its own as my post-cleanse moisture shot!
A slightly early August favourites coming your way this month as I just can’t get enough of these few things and I know that there won’t be anything in the next week or so that makes the cut like these guys have.
Neal’s Yard & Deliciously Ella – Rose, Lime & Cucumber Facial Wash & Moisturiser
Say hello to the new range from Neutrogena to hit the UK high street! It’s the No. 1 skincare product in the US from a 2015 Nielsen study and now we can get our hands on it. I’ve been trialling their new Hydro Boost range which is super lightweight yet delivers intense hydration and is absolutely perfect for summer. They say it leads to “skin so supple it bounces back!”. Having hydrated skin means you look healthier and younger because hydration maintains elasticity and flexibility in the skin.
The hot weather and summer time usually always means switching up your skincare and beauty routine. It definitely does for me anyway, it’s time for less makeup, mattifying skincare and a lot of moisturisation without feeling weighed down and greasy.
I’ve been trying some exciting Clarins products recently and wanted to share what I thought about them. First up, I’ve recently finished a face scrub so the One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is a welcome addition to my regime. This is a physical exfoliator which is a subtle amount of ‘scrubby’, it’s not too harsh, smells really good and is a great every-other-day cleanser. My skin feels super fresh after using this and it’s great for removing dead skin cells and a build up of sweat, suncream and other summer gunk build up!
Since the sunshine has made a sparse appearance I’ve got a couple of summer skincare favourites to share with you today. I was going to pop up a little June favourites post but then I realised that I didn’t really have that many things that I was loving that I hadn’t chatted about before on here so a full on favourites post definitely wasn’t necessary.
Summer changes your skin, that’s for sure. I’ve recently just got over a two-year crazy bad bout of cystic acne on my forehead (with the help of antibiotics) and it’s finally changed how I feel about skincare. I feel like I can really enjoy skincare again because I’m not just focusing on the blemishes, I can really see other skincare products working. I’ve been loving face masks again and it’s got me really excited so I thought I’d share some that are on my wishlist and some that I already love using.
It’s that time again, just a little round up of some products that’ve been rocking my world this month. In May, it’s been all about the skincare, a fragrance and a bit of fizz!
First up, I’ve been trialling a few products from Caudalie’s Vinosource range which is all about hydration. I trialled their Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet a while ago from Space NK when I was have texture issues with my skin. I was using a cleanser for much oilier skins than mine and it had dried my skin out horrendously. I used this for a few days and my skin was back to normal in no time. It’s so hydrating so perfect for the summer time. It’s also great for sensitive skin and is packed with anti-oxidants.
If you like Pina Coladas and smelling like a coconutty pineapple dream then you need The Body Shop‘s new Pinita Colada range in your life. Not sure they’re the lyrics but, hey! I was obsessed with their lime-drenched Mojito range that they released last summer and they’ve just brought out their next cocktail-inspired collection.
If a pineapple Krazy Straw cup doesn’t scream summer then I don’t know what does! How cute is this? It arrived on my doorstep in a really cute package from Bon Prix alongside a cute kaftan, a festival-ready floral headband, an awesome branded tote bag and some essential SPF products.
These dinky little SPF is what I want to base this post all about because sunscreen is so, so, so important!
As you know, I love beauty products. The ones that are on my favourites list are the ones that work that little bit harder to take care of me at the same time. We all know that eating natural foods, exercising lots and getting plenty of sleep help to keep us looking healthy. But there are a few clever beauty products and techniques that can help make us look great too! Here are just a few of my favourites:
