Green People Cha Vøhtz Age Defy+ Range

(#gifted) Organic beauty brand Green People has expanded their popular Age Defy+ range to offer an AHA mask which promises to leave your skin ‘velvety soft’ this new mask promotes cellular renewal to help give you that sought after bright, youthful complexion. Count me in! This Age Defy+ collection was actually developed by the founder of Green People Charlotte Vøhtz and is targeted at those aged 35+, so this trio of luxury products really focuses on hydration, radiance and rejuvenating tired skin.

Green People Age Defy Skincare

Being in my mid 40s, this Age Defy+ trio is ideal for replenishing and nourishing my skin as well as targeting the texture and dullness. I have been using the products for a little while now, and they have become a really welcome part of my evening routine.

Firstly they all smell luxurious, with soothing scents of mandarin, palmarosa, geranium, lavender and neroli, each product is a little pampering at home spa treatment, very nice indeed. My evening skincare routine has become somewhat of a wind down treat after a long, stressful day.

This mask is a blend of natural fruit extracts that deliver 5 gently exfoliating AHA’s to the skin.

This mask gentle removes dead, dull skin which helps smooth your complexion and give you that healthy glow. It promotes cell turnover which over time helps your skin rejuvenate, have increased hydration and become softer & smoother

A lovely, nourishing, not too thick night cream that acts like a face mask whilst you sleep. I do enjoy a product that is intensive and that you see results from toot sweet, you genuinely wake up with smooth, plump rejuvenated skin. The fresh, scent of this sleep mask is also so nice and relaxing.

Best used 2-3 times a week after you have cleansed and exfoliated, as this aids the absorption of the mask. This has been such a luxurious pampering product for my skin after such a long Winter, I feel like my skin is getting its natural glow back just in time or Spring/Summer.

Described as skincare for a generation who are always on the go, Wake skincare are a relatively new brand in the beauty world founded by Anton and Alex.

Autumn Skincare At Very.co.uk

Best Autumn Skincare

AD – sponsored by Very.co.uk

The transition from Summer to Autumn is always tough on my skin thanks to the cold weather, turning on the central heating and the lack of sunshine, which tends to make my skin look dull, feel dry and have less bounce. I seek out products to help give my complexion the things it lacks during these cooler months, like moisture and radiance. I also like to use soothing and products that won’t irritate or be abrasive, Autumn is for me a time to adapt my routine to nourish my skin and with the help of these products from Very.co.uk I am well on my way to a glowing, healthy complexion. Let me know if I have added any of your favourite products to my Autumn skincare regime, or if you have any suggestions of products I need to try.

Garnier Organic Rejuvenating Lavandin Smooth & Glow Face Oil*

This is such an affordable face oil which you must try, so please don’t be scared of using an oil on your skin. Even if you have an oily complexion, oils can really boost hydration and nourish skin. This Garnier one is a great overnight oil, the consistency is much like a serum and that’s how I like to use it, after toning but before my evening moisturiser. It is enriched with Organic Lavandin & Argan Oil and Antioxidant Vitamin E, so it is soothing, smoothing and very hydrating. I really like this overnight sleep range from Garnier.

Garnier Lavender Sleep Skincare
Garnier Rejuvinating Lavender Skincare

Garnier Organic Anti Age Sleeping Cream*

This cream, much like the Lavandin face oil, targets dry sensitive skin and helps calm, smooth and hydrate. This cream is nice and rich it feels lovely on the skin, very cooling and instantly hydrating. It is enriched with organic Lavandin essential oil, argan and jojoba oils for night time nourishment. I highly recommend this alongside the face oil, they’re a great overnight duo for Autumn.

Trilogy Clarifying Cleansing Gel*

Now, this cleanser has been wonderful in helping combat my dry skin. It’s non drying, rebalancing gel formula is gentle on the skin and is a must for the colder months. Formulated with mildly astringent witch hazel to tone and refresh, salicylic acid from willow bark to lightly exfoliate dull and tired skin, and omega-rich rosehip, jojoba and grape seed oils to nourish and soften. It also has such an energising scent of mint and melon, a combination that really works well together, (surprisingly). If you hate that tight, dry feeling after you cleanse, this is a great product to add to your routine.

Elemis Superfood Cleansing Butter
Autumn Skincare Update

Elemis Superfood AHA Glow Cleansing Butter*

Well, this is a game changer for me, one of those products that you instantly fall in love with and wonder how you managed without it. It is bright orange, which I thought was quite fun, and the thick buttery texture makes it so nice to cleanse with. A unique blend of a fermented Pumpkin enzymes and Acerola Cherry, naturally rich in AHAs helps to brighten skin, while Mango Butter and Chia Seed Oil, rich in omega fatty acids, nourish and hydrate the skin. If like me, your top skin concern is dull, tired-looking complexion then you need to try this cleansing butter. It will make your skin look so radiant, and I mean really healthy! It’s like a pot of gold, and I have fallen head over heals for it. You can use it morning and night, but I like to use it in the am, as it gives my skin such a smooth finish and that lovely glow.

Autumn Skincare Routine

Nip & Fab Salicylic Fix Serum 2%*

Nip and Fab have such a great range of skincare and their Salicylic Fix products are some of my favourites. We all get blemishes and uneven skin and this salicylic acid serum helps unclog pores & gently exfoliate skin which promotes cell turnover and treats/prevents blemishes. It is also enriched with Soothing Aloe Vera helps to hydrate and calm the complexion to keep the skin feeling smooth. The concentrated serum helps to regulate sebum production to banish excess oiliness with Purple Ginseng Extract.

Favourite Skincare Products

Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream SPF30*

Not every luxury moisturiser is truly worth the price tag. With moisturisers, you are often left wondering what you are paying for but not with this Elemis Po Collagen Marine Cream, this is the real deal. It is fantastic quality and very effective. I’m 43 and when my skin is dry/dehydrated my fine lines look so much more defined and my skin is less plump. It is easy to see why this moisturiser is a beauty icon and has won countless awards. This rich but lightweight cream is designed to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and increase hydration, leaving your skin feeling smoother and firmer, with the added benefit of broad-spectrum SPF 30 sun protection. Blended with a cocktail of three seaweeds – padina pavonica, porphyridium and chlorella, plus ginkgo biloba, rose and mimosa a powerful combination which tones, improves hydration and elasticity to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I love it, and it wears so well under makeup.

REN Overnight Glow Dark Spot Sleeping Cream*

This smells like fresh oranges and is so zesty, the cream is perfect if you have some sun spots after the summer or uneven skin tone. This cream specifically targets those sun spots whilst you sleep. It also helps skin to be plumper and radiant a rich, hydrating sleeping cream – almost like an overnight mask
These key ingredients help with pigmentation and dark spots, Encapsulated algae – to target the appearance of excessive pigmentation. A bend of Encapsulated Algae Complex – targets the appearance of excessive pigmentation and PhytoGlycogen helps recharge skin for a smoother, more radiant complexion, So if you suffer from hyperpigmentation this is a wonderful addition to our Autumn skincare routine.

These are some of reasons we experience pigmentation. ‘Hormonal changes, ageing, pollution and UV damage can leave skin looking uneven, tired and cause or worsen dark spots, and these are mainly down to melanocytes. Classed as part of the immune cells, they’re known to react to and protect us from sun damage, but also react to pollution, inflammation and spots, causing areas of skin to darken over time’.

PIXI ROSE Travel Kit*

How sweet is this skincare set from PIXI, it includes 4 deluxe travel size products in the most beautiful pink packaging. You get Makeup Melting Cleansing Cloths, Rose Cream Cleanser, Rose Tonic and Rose Ceramide Cream. It’s 4 steps to nourish, gently cleanse, sooth your skin. Great for sensitive skin, the Rose Tonic is my favourite product in this kit, it is so gentle and helps boost radiance.
