Autumn Skincare Additions

I blimming love buying new skincare products, anyone else the same? A new season equals a new skincare routine, any excuse! My skin has been throwing a bit of a tantrum lately. I blame the weather and eating out too much.
The comedown from a Summer high is less than pretty with fine lines, sun spots and chlorine-dipped hair. Now is the time to reverse that summer damage with these handy tips and products.

REN Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Water 3-in-1 200ml £13.00*
A cleanser, make up remover and toner all in one. I use this at the end of the day to take my make up off. I was really impressed with how well it removes make up, even stubborn mascara. There is no tightness or irritation left with this gentle cleanser. This is great when i'm feeling lazy as you don't need to rinse it off (plus i can clean my face whilst watching telly) and i still feel like my skin is getting a good cleanse. This cleansing water is soap, alcohol and detergent free, it's also suitable for all skin types. If you're not into cleaning waters, REN have a whole selection of different cleanser in the Rosa Centifolia range here.
Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Defence Daily Moisturiser £16.99
(Why such the long name?!)The Vitamin C+ range from Super Facialist is perfect for creating a more youthful, healthy glow. This brightening moisturiser contains Hyaluromic Acid and anti-oxidant rich Ferulic Acid which helps to reduce sun spots and uneven skintone. The lovely citrus scent helps to wake me up in the morning too!
Weleda Citrus Refreshing Body Oil 100ml £13.95*
As the weather shifts to drier, cooler temperatures, your skin becomes much more prone to breakage. This body oil softens and protects skin from moisture loss. It can be applied directly onto damp skin after a shower or bath. If you suffer from really dry skin i would use this in conjunction with body butter. Weleda Body Oils are formulated from carefully selected plant oils, these are rich in essential fatty acids which stimulate the regeneration and revitalisation process of the skin. This is dermatologically tested and suitable for vegans.
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub 300ml £8.00
Soap & Glory know how to make a good scrub don't they? I recently treated myself to this after finishing my tub of Flake Away. What i love about this is its sweet scent, reminds me of lime cheesecake! Seriously, this smells good enough to eat (please don't eat it, trust me). The brown sugar and macadamia grains help me to get a good scrub.
LUSH Therapy Massage Bar 50g £6.50
Massage bars melt at body temperature and turn to rich oil on skin. This is really easy to use, simply rub the bar slowly over skin, allowing it to melt. I like to use this in the shower for a more intense aroma. These come in all different scents, Therapy contains coco butter, shea butter and organic essentials oils with mood effecting benefits. Perfect for when winter has left your skin feeling and looking dry. This is such a lovely experience to use, it's the perfect pick me up on a dark winters evening!

  2. I have the S&G scrub and at first didn't like it compared to the other one they do - find I have to rub a little more as the carrier is pretty thick and doesn't let the scrubby bits come through as easily, but oh man, I love, love, love that smell!
