My Favourite Skincare Brands.💃💃💃
I’m an elitist.
When it comes to skincare, only the best products will do.
And why not I’m not exactly going to achieve the glowing, flawless skin I want if I settle for second best, am I
BEST MULTITASKING SKINCARE BRAND: PAULA’S CHOICE
I love Paula’s Choice because it makes my life so much easier.
Shopping for skincare is a minefield. How do you know what works, what YOUR skin needs and what irritates it
Paula’s done all the research work for you. She doesn’t care about what ingredient is the current media’s darling. She doesn’t stop using an ingredient because a group of people say so.
Instead, she looks at the science. If science says an ingredient works, it makes the cut. If science says an ingredient is irritating, it gets the boot.
The best part Each product has EVERYTHING your skin needs – nothing more and nothing less.
BEST NATURAL SKINCARE BRAND: DRUNK ELEPHANT
Ok, I’m using the term “natural” very broadly here. Drunk Elephant doesn’t shy away from synthetic chemicals – IF they work and are safe.But they do refuse to use silicones, fragrances, dyes and other chemicals with a bad rep. If you want them out of your skincare products, Drunk Elephant is a brand you want to check out.
BEST DRUGSTORE SKINCARE BRAND: CERAVE
This is the best skincare brand you can find at the drugstore. Bar none. Trust me.
Ok, it’s better for dry skin than oily skin – those moisturisers are on the thick side. But hey, they’re just what the doctor ordered to strengthen your skin’s barrier and keep your skin soft and supple even in the foulest of weathers.
CeraVe products are loaded with niacinamide, ceramides and fatty acids, all the good stuff skin needs to stay hydrated and withstand the attacks from cold weather… and that we take for granted.
Good morning 😙
🤧Hey my darlings! I am feeling super sorry for myself today. I have the flu pretty bad and have gone all shivery and achey. I need some sympathy but I’ve been laughing at my hubs all week because he was moaning LF about his man-flu so he’s doing the same to me now and I am not happy! 😭.
⭐️Today I wanted to make a special introduction to a new Aussie brand I discovered recently: Shine Organics! The business is owned by the lovely Colette and all products are vegan, cruelty-free and silicone free! I’ve tried 4/5 of these products so far and they are seriously so good I just couldn’t wait to tell everyone about them! The products come in elegant little glass bottles and jars, which of course makes them very photo worthy. .
🌿I’ve not used them long enough for a proper review so for now, here is a brief description: ..
☀️ Brightening Serum:
A serum with ingredients to help bring back a youthful glow to the skin. Contains jackfruit, probiotic peptide, mulberry and liquorice. ..
💦 Native moisturiser:
A light moisturiser that is enriched with hyaluronic acid, extract of native desert lime with essences of rose, blood orange and ylang ylang. ..
🍚 Peptide Cream:
A rich moisturiser that is infused with hyaluronic acid which is hydrating and plumping, and Q10 for soothing and has an antioxidant effect. It also contains hydrolysed rice protein. ..
🌸 Australian Pink Clay
Pure therapeutic Australian pink clay, this is in powder form so no preservatives added. I like to mix this with some pure rosewater and a few drops of one of my face oils. ..
🥒 Native Milk Cleanser:
A beautiful gentle milk cleanser containing soothing cucumber, lavender flower extract, rosehip oil, and aloe vera. It is delicately scented with a blend of cedarwood, ylang ylang and neroli. ..
🍋 Vitamin A Serum
This is a plant based retinol and the only product I haven’t tried yet as I am in the midst of testing another similar product, but am really excited to try it as it smells and feels gorgeous! It also contains vitamin E, seabuckthorn berry, and is naturally scented with frankincense, Rose geranium and ylang ylang. .
🍒 Have you tried anything from this fab new brand
Happy Thursday ✨
It’s been so cloudy here in Houston so I’ve been forced to turn to a few outtakes until I can shoot some new pictures lol! I have some products reviews coming up soon so stay tuned for that! All of the products pictured are favorites of mine, and are almost always in some sort of rotation! I’m making some signs tonight for the women’s march this Saturday and going on a movie date with my hubby so I’m pretty excited about that! 🥰
Hope you all have a beautiful day!! ♥️
