So May is nearly over…Can you believe how quick this year is going!!!
I thought i had better post my May favorites! So first i thought i would start with SKINCARE
The products i have been loving this month are:
Liz Earl Hot cloth Cleanser – You will already know this from my previous post.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Toner astringent lotion
Aveds Botanical Kinetics hydrating lotion (day moisturiser)
Origins Charcoal Mask
Avene Hydrance Optimale Light (hydrating moisturiser)
I have been using these products every day this month and i am loving the effects they have on my skin.
The Liz Earl Hot cloth Cleanser i use twice a day… if you would like to read more about it see my previous post.
The La Roche-Posay lotion is a new favorite in my make up routine.. it tightens and helps unblock pores.
key ingredients: Salicylic Acid increases the cellular turnover rate, leading to faster skin renewal and fewer clogged pores, which is the primary cause of many skin issues.
Aveda Hydrating Lotion
I used to use this product a few years ago but then stopped due to trying out other creams/ lotions. I remembered how lovely and hydrated my skin felt after using this product…so i decided to purchase again.
I LOVE the smell. Its a blend of Lavender, Rosmary and chamomile – smells so fresh
I need a moisturiser that hydrates without making my skin shiny which is exactly what it does!
Jojoba oil – The oil from the jojoba shrub is a wax ester, which means it’s very much like the natural oils our bodies produce.
Lavender-Soothing to stressed skin, refreshing and relaxing.
Origins Charcoal Face Mask
I really love this mask..I have been using it 2-3 times per week(which is a little excessive but i wanted to give my skin a kick start) I am going to start using once a week starting from next week for maintenance.
It goes on black… and tightens as it dries – some people may not like this feeling but i like it as i feel that the mask is doing its job and tightening my pores and giving them a nice clean!
Charcoal- acts like a magnet to draw out pore-cloggers.
Avene Hydrance Optimale Light
I don’t use this product every day but when i feel my skin is particually dehydrated i use this at night. I have found on my skin it can be slightly too rich for daytime use and my makeup sometimes doesn’t sit well, so i tend to only use in the evening routine.
Thermal Spring Water – This is locked in to the skin by Meiboserin to limit evaporation.
I hope you like my post!
Would love to hear your comments and thoughts.
