New Beauty Additions.

Sometimes I like to tell myself that I’d only ever need one cleanser, one moisturiser etc. Who needs so many products anyway? But then I get to try something new, and another exciting product, oh and another. Come on. Who am I kidding? I will forever be totally and utterly obsessed with beauty. I’ve been playing around with a few new products recently and all of them are just fabulous, so it would be rude not to share them with you guys too.

Gatineau Aquamemory Moisturise Replenish Cream

I have dehydrated skin. I find it difficult to find a moisturiser that I get on with as I am fussy with textures. It can’t be too heavy, or too light. It has to smell nice but not have an overpowering fragrance. I am totally in love with this one from Gatineux, it is really hydrating and my skin goes to a happy place when I use it. I use it daily, just in the morning, as it is perfect underneath makeup or just when I want a fresh face kinda day.

Lush Cosmetics Ultrabland Facial Cleanser

I have been meaning to try this cleanser for a few years, but just never got round to picking it up. My sister bought it me for Christmas and I am so glad she did as it is now one of my favourites. I don’t tend to use it when I have worn a lot of makeup, but if I just want a gentle cleanse or to remove a light makeup look, I reach for this. It is made from almond oil, rosewater, beeswax and honey and feels really nourishing. I always forget to use a flannel or a hot cloth when cleansing, and this one has renewed that habit. I am pretty sure that this is also a product that is helping with my breakouts.

Vichy LiftActiv Vitamin C Brightening Skin Corrector

I will be writing an entirely separate post just for this – as IT IS AWESOME. But just let me tell you, I wish I had known how good Vitamin C was before now. My skin has never looked better. Use morning or evening, when your skin is looking a bit poo pants and under the weather, and when used every day in concession for a week or so you will start seeing results. For me, I saw a difference in just a couple of days.

 

Kinn Living Body Oil

I got to try a few products from Kinn Living, and my favourite had to be the Body Oil. It is totally organic, smells delicious and is jam packed with amazing ingredients: Avocado oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil and sweet almond oil. With living abroad I always feel like I have to look after my skin all year round, even when it is in sweat pants and jumpers for the majority of Winter. Summer is always on my mind and I just want my body to look it’s best. This stuff is wonderful. Plus, if you are keen on using more environmentally friendly products, then switch over to this brand.

Pixi Overnight Glow Serum

I seriously need to do a post on a round up of all my favourite Pixi skincare, as I am utterly obsessed with this brand, but for now I will shout about this fella. The Overnight Glow serum should have been introduced to my routine a long time ago. I use this of an evening around 2-3 times a week in conjunction with the Glow tonic, and it does a fabulous job of keeping my skin glowing and radiant. I can tell when I have stopped using it as my skin just doesn’t sing to me. I highly recommend this.

Pai Gentle Genius Body Wash

I feel like I am committing a blogging crime when I say I have not used many  products from Pai, as it seems to be such a popular brand. I have made a note to try more from these guys, plus if you have any recommendations, please feel free to share them with me. This Pai body wash smells so fresh and clean, I really love it. I always feel happy when I smell this. It comes with a konjac sponge too.
