Hello June! It is officially Winter – but boy it doesn’t feel like it. The evenings and morning are finally starting to get cooler but the days are still fairly warm… not that I am complaining. Let’s dive into the products I have been reaching for this month.
I was so lucky to be sent a few items from Skinstitut. I had heard so many great things about the brand, but never had the opportunity to try them. I have been using the L-Lactic cleanser, Glycolic Scrub and Even Blend serum for just over a month and I have really been loving them. The cleanser is the perfect addition to my shower. It is gentle yet effective. It removes makeup, exfoliates and refines my skin. My face isn’t left feeling tight or dry afterwards. The scrub is also a welcomed addition to my shower, I have been using this every other day for extra exfoliation. It isn’t too gritty, too creamy or too abrasive, it’s the perfect formula. I love exfoliators and this one really measures up. My skin feels soft, clean and fresh. Winner. The Even Blend Serum is thin and spreads out well. It sinks straight into the skin and is a great boost of moisture while targeting pigmentation. So far I have noticed a slight difference in dark spots and pigmentation, and can’t wait to see the results after more use.
I am completely obsessed with this little beauty tool. It perfectly combines my love of crystals and cosmetics. The jade roller is used to combat redness, improve skin tone ,encourage lymphatic drainage, eliminate excess toxins and puffy skin all while pushing in skincare, so that you experience the full benefits of the products. Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong. It definitely delivers. Stay tuned for a detailed blog post about the Jade Roller later in the week.
I was lucky enough to receive a couple of goodies from Scout Cosmetics. This is a brand that I haven’t previously had any experience with. Scout is a mineral make-up brand that also created a few skincare items and nail polish. I received the Brow Defining Dust and the Organic Pomegranate and White Tea Rejuvenating Creme. So far I have been reaching for the Brow Defining Dust daily. It is so easy and effortless to apply. Not only does it thicken and define my brows, but it makes them look super natural – Not overdrawn at all. The staying power is great and I have been loving the colour. I love that it is Australian made, natural and cruelty free. I have only used the Rejuvenating Creme a couple of times, but it is just lovely. It is absolutely perfect for under make up. It is light and sinks into the skin instantly, I can apply my primer and foundation straight away. It leaves my skin hydrated, smooth and fresh. Can’t wait to use this guy a little more.
If you are a regular reader of the blog, you would know that I am pretty damn obsessed with MooGoo. Since the weather has started to turn cold, my skin has really started to suffer. This cream is just perfect. If there was only one moisturiser product that I could use for the rest of my life – It would be this. Not only is it the product that the entire brand was built upon, but it is also a miracle worker. Udder cream works well as a hand cream, body balm, and even a face moisturiser. It sinks in quickly and skin is immediately softer and plumper. Plus it smells so so so good. It is this delicious milky sweet scent that just conjures up feelings and memories of warm baths and snuggly towels. I have about three tubes currently opened and scattered around the house and in my handbag. This is definitely a great addition to your collection and a great introduction to MooGoo.
Another favourite this month has been the Weleda Sea Buckthorn Creamy Body Wash. Firstly the packaging is beautiful and bright – it really stand outs. The body wash is as the name suggests very creamy and hydrating. It lathers up really nicely with this huge burst of a citrus, which is really energizing and uplifting. My skin is left soft, smooth and smelling delicious. Weleda as a brand is only relatively new to me, but I have loved all the products I have used so far. I will be looking into their product range more and trying some other bits and pieces.
Last months favourites seem to be very skincare heavy, but I guess that reflects this time of the year.
Until next time,
