Springing into new skincare

Mixing up skincare is something I really enjoy and am always on the hunt for new products to try out, and lately I've found some right finds. I've been trialing these products for a while and feel like every one of these needs to be spoken about to you all, you seriously need to try these.

I was kindly given the Super Facialist by Una Brennan and I'd heard so much about this oil, I was so happy to finally have it and see what the fuss was about. Now, this oil boasts anti-aging qualities with a high performance pro-collagen for a youthful and healthy glow to the face. It contains Rosemary oil, vitamin E and cucumber oil. I use this as a second cleanse mid week, and then again on a Sunday evening. Initially I started using it every other day which my skin wasn't actually a fan of, so started limiting myself to just two a week. It definitely gets my skin glowing and gives a plump feeling. Over using this product just isn't good for my skin, but when I do use it sparingly I really enjoy it and honestly smells amazing.

Whilst having a rummage in a little grocery shop in China Town London, I came across these sheet face masks by Etude House and that little voice inside instantly said "You have to buy these". So I did. I bought two of each type focusing on things like moisture, firming and Hyaluronic acid which I'm all for. I love a good sheet mask anyway but really liked using these a lot and even more than others I've tried before. With these you don't have a ridiculous amount of waste product (no dripping liquid from the sheets). I find it really hard to describe the difference in my skin from using a mask as it's something you use every now and again, but the ones I've used so far I've really enjoyed. 

I've used the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm before and loved it and seemed to continue with life without it fine. They do say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and with regards
to this particular product, its certainly true. I'd forgotten how great it makes me feel about my skin. Especially on those days when I've had a late night and don't just feel fatigued, I looked fatigued. This helps to give you that glow again (sense a glow addiction) and just spritely I guess. 

Lastly, this dinky miniature of Benefits Total Moisture is not only the cutest miniature ever, but the moisture punch of this little guy is phenomenal. I'd never thought about Benefits skincare, and in a way, I'd always judged it before ever trying it. This came in a big set full of miniatures and have used it for about a month now. I get extremely dry skin around my nose and also on my cheeks, and when I use this it seems to get a lot better. I prefer to use it over night more so than a morning cream, as I find it too rich to be a base for my face makeup. Has a lovely scent, consistency and does a great job. 

Got any new skincare products your raving about? I'd love for you to share them.
xoxo
