Today's post is a simple favourite's for you, of some of the products that I have been enjoying recently. Specially with us all spending some extra time at home atm why not fill it with some self care!
First up we have Ole Henriksen Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser.
I tried this as a travel size to see if I liked it and I didn't expect to fall so in love with it!
The travel size was £10 from Boots for 60ml.
I purchased this at the beginning of February and its still going now, you don't need a lot, it lathers up really nicely, it smells amazing (peppermint) which helps give a real fresh feeling when using.
My skin is sensitive but not troublesome so I bought this more to keep on top of my skin and keeping it clear.
It's helped improve the little texture I did have, it's helped to even skin tone and kept it clear and breakout free! So a huge success and I will definitely be repurchasing the larger size!
Oh K! SOS Detoxifying Peel Off Clay Mask
I purchased this at the beginning of the year, from Feel Unique £7 for 100ml, after falling in love with some of their other products.
This mask applies nicely and takes a while to dry but does peel off in one go which is so satisfying!
It gently exfolaites, my face always feels refreshed, clean and looks clear! It helps to irradicate any texture, helps to reduce excess sebum on the skin and my skin feels so smooth!
It has a strong whichhazel scent but as it dries it does go.
I've used it 8 times so far and I'm still far from the end of the tube!
Well worth trying!
Nuxe Multi-Correctional Eye Crème Prodigieuse Boost
I purchased this by complete accident, I was actually after the Nuxe Multi-Correctional Day Cream which I recieved a travel size in my M&S Christmas advent calendar and fell in love with!
This retails for £23.50 for 15ml but my gosh a little goes a long way and I would say after 4 months use I'm a third of the way through!
I am so happy I accidentally purchased this eye cream though!
I suffer from dry, dark circles around my eyes from being poorly & the tablets I taken.
This cream helps to put moisture back into my skin without it feeling greasy or breaking me out. It helps the texture and tone of my under eye and even relieves the puffiness, it always feels nice and cooling around the eye.
I highly recommend to anyone who suffers from dark circles or dry eyes!
Laniege Lip Sleeping Mask - Vanilla
I bought this last year but I can't quite remember where from. They retail for around £16 and are available at a few different K-beauty online stores.
This mask is a thick one, if you don't like the feeling of having a product on then you probably won't like this one.
I put a generous coating over my lips and by morning it has been absorbed. It smells amazing like vanilla cupcakes, depending how generously you apply it, the pot lasts a long time, I'm now heading to 12 months and still have half a jar left, so I'm more likely to have to change pots because of the date rather than running out of product.
I use this several times a week to help keep my lips well moisturised, keeps them from cracking or becoming dry!
Next is another Ole Henriksen Lip Scrub Lucky Pucker
I purchased this at the beginning of the year after hearing such good reviews and I am so glad that I did.
This works hand in hand with the lip mask, I use this a few times a week to help remove any dead skin and to keep my lips fresh and moisturised.
It has a strong cinnamon taste and scent but I can over look that as the product does what I want it to do.
I wouldnt say that this offers extreme exfoliation, it is a gentle exfoliation which I prefer as you can build it up and use it more frequently rather than make your lips raw and sore.
Superdrug Calm Skin Overnight Mask
I bought this one on a random haul last year and haven't looked back. They are £2.99 and often on deal as Buy 1 Get 1 half price.
I'm currently on my 5th tube and I love it! I use it a few times a week to make sure that my skin is well moisturised, feels soft and smooth and looks clear. Definitely a product I will be keeping in my routine
The chamomile scent is soft but enough to get you feeling relaxed and calm!
Well worth trying if you want a mask for overnight that doesn't break the bank but offers nourishment for the skin.
Last up is a honourable mention as it is a product that you can't get here in the UK.
The Sephora Oat Muesli mask. My best friend bought it back from America as a Christmas gift for me and I haven't stopped using it!
I'm at 8 uses and have a few more left yet but I'm dreading running out!
I have psoriasis which flares up at times, this soothes the area so well, helps to balance the moisture and soothes the area's.
My skin always feels soft and it lasts for days!
All of Sephora's masks are worth a try as they are so reasonably priced!
So there you have some of my lockdown self love favourites.
I hope you are all keeping well and safe during this unprecidented and crazy time!
Until Next Time,
Wow it's been a long time since I have sat down to write a post, thing's have been a little crazy & definitely aren't showing signs of calming down especially with this pandemic we are all facing currently, please keep safe everyone! I will do a post soon with a life catch up!
But today I thought I would do a review on something that I have been loving!
Give me cosmetic Eco Pad re-usable make up remover. These retail for just £9,99 for 2.
I was realisied that I was using far too many wipes and cotton pads to remove excess make up and wanted to find a more sustainable way to remove make up.
