YOUR NATURAL SKINCARE ESSENTIALS



Right off the bat, I’m just going to acknowledge that this kind of post is waaaaaay out of my comfort zone and doesn’t sit within my area of expertise in any way ... but you asked for it so here it is!


Over the years I have tried what feels like a gazillion products and skincare brands on my search for a skincare routine that leaves my skin looking and feeling amazing but that includes products which aren’t packed full of chemicals or tested on animals.


Twenty years ago that was almost impossible to find and natural products really didn’t cut it in the effectiveness stakes but thankfully, the natural skincare arena has changed and it’s packed full of amazing products.


I’m often asked what I’m using on my skin so here is my current skincare routine that I’m genuinely loving.


—————————————————————————————————————————


ELEMIS PRO-COLLAGEN ROSE CLEANSING BALM £44


This gloriously rich cleansing balm lifts all make up and dirt from your face and leaves it feeling (and smelling) incredible. I use this morning and night by massaging a small amount into dry skin then removing with a warm facecloth.


BENTLEY ORGANIC FACIAL TONER £5.95


Doing my bit for the environment I use a little of this toner on a bamboo make up pad after cleansing which clears any excess make up, dirt or oil left behind.


ESPA LIFT & FIRM INTENSIVE EYE SERUM £56


I love this super-smooth eye cream and it leaves my eye area looking much brighter. A little goes a long way with this product and as with all ESPA products it’s beautifully delicate yet super-effective.


ESPA OPTIMAL SKIN PRO SERUM £51


This gorgeous face serum nourishes the skin, smooths out fine lines, hydrates and firms to leave the skin feeling like silk. One drop of this rubbed between your palms then pressed onto your face and neck is all you need. Is smells incredible too and is a really indulgent treat for your skin and senses.


(MORNING) BARKER & SLOANE DAILY DEFENDER PROTECTING MOISTURISER £65


I was gifted this product back in the summer when Barker & Sloane first launched but I loved it so much I’ve since bought more. A really light and fresh smelling daily moisturiser that really hydrates and works as a lovely base for make up.


(EVENING) BARKER & SLOANE OVERNIGHT RECOVERY REPAIRING NIGHT CREAM £75


A soothing and rich night cream that feeds my skin overnight and lets me wake up in the morning with super-smooth ands hydrated skin. A really lovely product that feels like such a treat at the end of the day!

So there you have it - that’s my current skincare routine and I love it!


I’d love to know if any of you use any of the same products?
