balanceMe Super Moisturising Bodywash

I do love a fancy body wash, it’s one of my guilty pleasures. This balanceMe one smells like a spa and leaves my skin feeling like I’ve had a pamper. It is infused with a skin-softening blend of Benzoin, Yarrow and Shea Butter, so it leaves skin feeling soft, supple and hydrated. The handy pump makes it easy to use in the shower when your hands are all slippery and it also means you don’t dispense more product that you need & that makes me happy. It has a refreshing, uplifting scent which is perfect for the morning and I like that it’s sulphate free, and 99% natural too!

SheaMoisture Argan Oil and Almond Milk Shampoo & Conditioner

This new release from SheaMoisture is the answer to frizz-free, sleek hair. It doesn’t weigh my hair down or cause product build up which means my hair looks healthy and glossy for longer.  It has been formulated specifically for curly, frizzy unmanageable hair, it is formulated with almond milk, argan oil, marshmallow root extract and raw shea butter to help tame frizz, detangle and lock in moisture. So your hair is in good hands with this duo!

Key Benefits

  • Helps to control frizz
  • Smoothes hair
  • Helps to improve manageability
  • Cruelty-free
  • Contains organic ingredients and fair trade ingredients
  • Detangles hair
  • Revives tired hair
  • Lightweight
  • Seals hair cuticles against humidity

This is also great, if like me your hair can often feel quite coarse and hard to style, this duo smooths and tames whilst giving the hair a real boost of moisture which helps it to feel softer for longer. Oh, and it smells amazing – which is always important in my book, especially when it comes to haircare.

Soap & Glory 3-in-1 Vitamin C Face Wash

These bottles always last me for months, it never seems to run out. I use this morning or night as a first cleanse. It has a gel consistency with tiny jojoba scrub-beads which are not at all abrasive but just help smooth skin and get rid of any dead skin which helps your skin glow from within. This 3 in 1 face wash cleanses, polishes and energises skin. It contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and Soap & Glory’s exclusive SUPERFRUIT™ YUZU complex.

I have been through quite a few bottles of this over the years and it’s a product I love having in my skincare routine because you can use it daily, it isn’t drying or striping so you can use it whenever your heart desires (I use it daily). I like to have a gentle, daily exfoliator in my routine, it helps reduce the build-up of dirt and grime which in turn stops me getting so many breakouts. This is a great face wash to have in your collection and like I said it lasts forever!

Merumaya Skin Brightening Exfoliating Peel  

This gentle exfoliating mask makes it easy to get radiant, smooth refreshed looking skin. No more scrubbing required. You just apply a generous layer of this gel and sit back, relax and let it work its magic. The Glycolic Acid integrated with Pomegranate Enzymes help eliminate dead skin whilst Aloe Vera and Allantoin soothe, calm and balance skins moisture levels.

Key Benefits

• Reduce blemishes, congestion and blockages.
• Refine and reduce the appearance of pores.
• Re-texturise all skin types so it is smoother
• Soften signs of skin-ageing.
• Prevent ingrown hairs for men

It is a fast acting mask so you don’t need to sit for ages, waiting. This mask re texturisers skin in 5 – 15 minutes, I usually leave it on for a solid 10 minutes, which is great if you are pushed for time. I love how effective it is and my skin is visibly more radiant after using it, doesn’t sting or leave my skin red afterwards, in fact, I often use it in the morning so my skin looks glowing with or without makeup.

Rediscovered Products

Merumaya Skin Brightening Exfoliating Peel £19.50 – I like to use this in the morning as it really leaves your skin smooth & looking bright. A great way to start the day. It has a combination of Glycolic Acid and Pomegranate Enzymes to help break down dead skin and re texturize it revealing vibrant, healthy smooth skin. It has a thick consistency & I like to apply a generous layer all over my face, leaving it for about 5 minutes. Its gentle but effective & a great weekly treatment to help revive dull lack lustre skin.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Corrector £19.00 – This little product always gets lost in my stash & I forget I have it but after having a clear out & have fewer concealers and so this has found pride of place in my current daily routine. Its a peachy pink corrector that helps counteract dark circles & make the under eye area appear brighter, you layer this under your concealer and it works a treat. This does crease on me after a couple of hours but thats because it is quite thick & creamy but i just pat it back into place and it looks good to go.

Soap & Glory Hocus Focus £11.00 – This gives the skin a lovely pearlescent illuminating glow and it looks beautiful worn under makeup or I have mixed it with my moisturiser / foundation for more of a subtle effect. Its not a primer, more of a glow enhancer & I think it does a great job at helping smooth imperfections. It is quite a runny milky formula, so don’t pump out too much & I find one pump is enough for my whole face. Its a product that just makes your skin look healthier, brighter & more awake. I have had this bottle for a while now & S&G have since changed the packaging. This is a product that will last you so very long & so is worth adding to your stash.
