New Skincare Additions

Over the last couple of months, this cold winter weather has leaded to me making a few changes to my skincare regime. I have introduced three new products all of which have some really lovely hydrating properties.

The first is a the Origins A Perfect World moisturiser, which is packed with antioxidants and White Tea. This helps combat the damage of free radicals and so can help the skin looking younger for longer. A great option if you are starting to think about anti-ageing products but perhaps don't actually need them just yet (lucky you!).

Next is Suti's Rejuvenate Organic Face Oil, which is suitable for all skin types. This has so many wonderful properties, it's hard to know where to begin. It can help to minimise wrinkles, reduce scarring as well as also prevent premature ageing. To use you simply apply a few drops to the face after cleansing and toning, either morning or night and rub into the face using an upwards movement. I love this especially for when I want to try a facial massage.

Finally is the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream, again this can be used morning or night and is suitable for all skin types. It's really lovely when used under your makeup and eye concealers and definitely one to not be without.

Soap and Glory Face Balms

I am a huge fan of Soap and Glory, from their body scrubs to body butters I can't say there is a product that I don't love. More recently, I have been trying some of their products for the face and I have been equally impressed.

The first is their Bright Here, Bright Now Instant Radiance Energy Boosting Balm, which can be used like a moisturiser or instead it can be mixed with makeup. It's great for making dull skin look more luminous, so a good for using the morning after the night before. I really like this and at £12, I think it's definitely reasonably priced, however if I am completely honest it does not quite match up to the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm.

Next is Glow Job, which is probably my favourite of the two. This 'morning moisture flash' gives the complexion a gorgeous sunkissed look. You only need to apply a pea sized amount to the face and it can be used either on its own or under makeup. This is definitely great all year round either when your skin needs a boost in the winter, or if you already have a tan during this summer then this could be used instead of your usual foundation.

Have you tried either of these? What other Soap and Glory products would you recommend?

Current Favourites

There are so many products that I'm loving at the moment and simply couldn't be without, so narrowing it down is always tricky...

 Firstly I have to mention the Origins Clear Improvement Mask, which has been an absolute lifesaver this winter. My skin has been so temperamental that this has really helped to balance the skin, especially mid-break out. 

Next is Maybelline The Falsies Mascara, which is literally THE best mascara I have tried in a while. So definitely a must-have for party season. 

I've also been enjoying Champney's Energising Lime Hydrating Body Gel. I find that this is really great to use ahead of a night out as you can guarantee your legs will look fabulous in your LBD. 

Last but not least is the Bobbi Brown Corrector and Creamy Concealer Kit. I use light to medium peach in the corrector and warm beige in the concealer. I find these are so great in the colder months at hiding those bags and dark circles, whether they be from too many Christmas parties, or if you simply struggle to wake up in the mornings. This combo will make you look like you have got your 8 hours in and nobody has to know!

Body Shop Rainforest Shampoo & Conditioner

As you all probably know, I am really fussy when it comes to what products I use on my hair. I tend to steer away from products that are packed with silicones, parabens and sulphates and so where possible I opt for natural and organic products.

Sometimes this can get pricey but one range I do like that doesn't have to break the bank is The Body Shop Radiance Eclat Shampoo and Conditioner. With continued use and a weekly treatment, this duo will keep your hair shiny and nourished, especially if you have coloured or over-processed hair.

Let me know if you too have tried these or which hair products you would recommend...

Alpha H Protection Plus Daily SPF50

Just because it's winter, it doesn't mean you can skip your daily SPF. This year my go-to product has to be the Alpha H Protection Plus Daily SPF15+.

Blended with Mango Seed Butter, Pomegranate and other powerful antioxidants, this offers broad spectrum protection against UV damage as well as protecting the skin from free radical aggression. Also, unlike other SPF's, this has a non-whitening formula, which leaves the skin soft, smooth and looking youthful.

I apply this each morning after cleansing and before my usual moisturiser, it's very nourishing on the skin, which is great for the colder months and it is suitable for all skin types. I'd always recommend using a SPF alongside your moisturiser, even if said moisturiser or even your foundation claims to have SPF protection as by doing so you can guarantee you are protecting your skin as much as possible. After all prevention is always better then cure right?

Let me know what you think about SPF's and if you have a favourite?
