Delicious new skin finds
December 14, 2016
Lately I’ve been kind of stuck on these four new products I received and started using. I take my time in trying them under different circumstances and in different ways to make sure it’s something I’ll carry on using and for sure, these products made the cut for me.
EXFOLIATE – The FILORGA SCRUB MASK is a bloody wonder and I’m obsessed with it. What I do is I apply it in it’s milky gel-cream formula to my face then leave it while I’m in the bath or shower. The formula activates as a reoxygenating skin exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and renew skin. At this point I gently massage the pearly spheres into my face then leave it to magically transform into a mousse right before my eyes. Micro bubbles of oxygen are released into the skin to help it breathe. After this I rinse to reveal fresh and shiny new skin. I use this product about three times a week with beautiful results. The clean look press-and-dispense packaging is also great to keep bacteria from entering the pot to keep the formula at it’s most active and effective. A definite new favorite!
NOURISH – New from THE BODY SHOP is their collection of masks. I received the ETHIOPIAN HONEY DEEP NOURISHING MASK to try out and it really is as nourishing as it claims. The dark goey gel formula spreads onto the skin easily and the rich honey, marula and olive oil consistency envelopes skin in a luxurious coat of african healing and soothing honey. The product is 100% vegetarian and contains no parabens, paraffin, mineral oils and silicone. I like trying face masks in different ways and always try to see if I can use them overnight or just wipe of the excess product. While this one is a bit sticky to leave on overnight, I did find that wiping off the excess after leaving it to do it’s work for a few minutes leaves skin feeling especially plumped, soft, smooth and nourished. It literally melts into your skin and is a great pamper product before bedtime or a quick moisture boost for a glowy skin before a night out.
HYDRATE – After trying the L’OCCITANE SHEA SOOTHING FLUID I was left in two minds. Do I use this in the morning or at night? Turns out I liked it so much I started using it exclusively with my serums and face oils, combined with a sunscreen at day time and a heavier eye cream at night. If your skin is sensitive and weak or damaged by extreme environmental conditions, this soothing formula is defintely something you should try. It calms redness, itchiness, the feeling of tightness or burning. The combination of rosehip, calendula and shea butter help defend skin, soothe against dryness and restore it’s softness and smoothness. Along with the soft shea smell I totally love using this cream day and night.
GLOW – A short while ago I spoke about the new CC cream launch from THE BODY SHOP. The INSTA GLOW CC CREAM in PEACHY GLOW is something I’m using quite a bit these days. I blend it over my just-moisturized skin in the mornings, brush on a little bronzer and I’m ready to go, or in the evening I mix a drop or two with my foundation. This fabulous allrounder illuminates, moisturizes for up to 24 hours, reduces the look of pores, protects with spf20, reduces shine and comes in 3 skin adapting shades. A perfect primer, addition to your moisturizer, mix with your foundation or just use it all on it’s own for a gorgeous glow.
