Current Favourites - Skincare

Monday, 9 October 2017

I'm starting a whole new series of "Current Favourites" instead of monthly favourites so I hope you guys would enjoy this kind of posts because I think this is a great opportunity to share the products that I love so you can benefit from them as well without having to wait until the end of each month. So here goes pt. 1 of the series, and my personal favourite - Skincare! 

In no particular order, Bare Origin Golden Chocolate Oil has been my skin saviour for the past a month or two, not just because it has the most delicious chocolate scent in the world but the texture, the way it feels on my skin, and how my skin looks after, I mean it just delivers results. It's made with pure Argan Oil with a touch of organic raw cacao beans and pure bourbon vanilla! Tell me if that doesn't sound lovely to you! it's superfood for your skin! You can use it either on your face or all over the body. If you have dry skin you must give this a shot, but if you have oily skin, just make sure to use half the pump and press the oil onto the skin till it's fully absorbed. It will balance out your oiliness without a doubt. 

I also like the Pure Argan Oil because it gives the same effect as the chocolate one, maybe a tad richer in terms of texture but the same greatness. However, I prefer the chocolate one a lot more simply because of the delicious smell. 

(Pure Argan oil is more of a yellow toned oil and Golden Chocolate is the clear one)

I got this Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1.00% by NIOD when I was on holiday, and it really wowed me! It's funny that I can't really tell you exactly what it does to my skin but my skin just looks good and healthy with it. It's one of those products that you don't think you need but when you don't use it for a while you'll see the difference. It's made with pure copper concentrate which apparently is a great anti-ageing ingredient so if you have mature skin, give it a go. It comes with an Activator so what you need to do is to pour all of it into the serum bottle and shake well before the first use. It has a lovely clear blue/purple colour and it has to be used up within 6 months once opened. 

Glossier Priming Rich Moisturizer has been a favourite for many and I can see why because it is truly a good primer for dry skin peeps! I normally use this in the morning as my last skincare step before I put on a foundation. My skin, honestly, looks luminous, healthy, and foundation lasts really well throughout the day! I highly recommend checking this out if you are looking for a good primer for your dry skin problem. Don't be scared of the word "rich" because it is not greasy at all so if you have normal to oily skin, I think you can still benefit from it but during the cooler months perhaps. 

You guys, I have just found the perfect hydrating face mask. Skin & Tonic Coco Mask is probably the best all natural face mask I've ever tried. It comes in a powder form but listen, the powder is so finely milled and feels so creamy, as soon as you add water, or rose water in my case, it just becomes a creamy lotion that feels soothing and moisturising on the skin. I even add half a teaspoon of organic raw honey to make it more nutritional so go get it guys, this would be a skin essential in winter for all skin types especially if you have sensitive skin as it contains the soothing Aleo Vera, Coconut Milk and the Kaolin Clay would even help to detoxify congested skin. Though it doesn't have the most beautiful scent in the world, for a mask that is as good as this one, I do not care. 

I have been using this N. Pack Cream by a Korean skincare brand called Zemu and I've really enjoyed it. It is a cream, dah, but it's more like a sleeping mask cream if that makes sense?! It can be used as your normal face mask which is what I have been doing, just apply a thick layer and wash off after 20 minutes, but it's actually designed to leave it overnight as a sleeping mask so if you are into this kind of product you may like this one as it contains Zeolite which is a mineral from Rotorua, the famous city of Hot Springs in New Zealand. It has an outstanding power for moisture retention, and it's also great for absorbing impurities.

It has a smooth texture and very lightly scented which is great, I love how hydrating this mask is, and of course the gorgeous shiny gold packaging. It comes in a massive 120ml bottle which would last for a long time, and it can be purchased on Amazon. The only reason why I don't use it as a sleeping mask is that I simply hate when skincare gets all over my pillow so if you want to leave it overnight, make sure apply a thin layer and wait until it's absorbed before hits bed. 

Caudalie Beauty Elixir has been around for ages, everybody who has tried it, loved it, and I'm no exception. In fact, I love it so much I got this pack of 3 at airport duty-free. This has the most beautiful, calming scent that is great just to inhale with it after spraying onto the face and it'll wake you up instantly in the morning, ready to face the day, but make you feel all relaxed in the evening so it's easier to fall asleep. For me, this is more than just a toner. If you haven't tried it yet, you are missing out! It's also a great makeup setting spray for that natural healthy glow. 

Last but certainly not least is my beloved Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream. This is by far, the best face cream I've used. If you follow me (which you should 😜), you know that I'm a big fan of face oils, I almost never use creams especially at night but this baby is everything I would ask for in a cream. It's 100% natural, and I love the rose essential oil smell in it. It might be strong for some but it does disappear once it's on. 

If you have oily skin, do not use it because it will make you look shiny, very shiny in fact, but the good news is Dr. Hauschka has a Lighter version of this cult favourite so yeah. I, however, love this one and I'm not even that dry. It gives the most healthy looking glow and somehow I feel like this cancels out my redness on the cheeks as well. I love this stuff, and I will always repurchase it. In fact my favourite actor from Friends, Jennifer Aniston is a big fan so, if it's good enough for her, it's good enough for me.
