FIVE - SKIN CARE FAVS


Face Cream
I use human+kind day and night cream every morning before applying CC cream and after I clean my face, before I go to bed. I discovered this cream randomly when I walked into boots looking for a hydrating cream as my skin was reacting to the weather change from winter to summer. I was told that human+kind only uses natural products which means it is easy on your skin. Since I started using the cream about 2 months ago now, my skin has become even and softer than before - I would recommend everyone looking for a face cream to try this product!

The natural ingredients are:
* Aloe Vera soothes, hydrates and nourishes.
* Marshmallow soothes and calms with active anti-inflammatory properties.
* Rosehip Oil is a potent source of vitamin A, its regenerative action reduces wrinkles and signs of premature ageing.
* Centella heals and treats scars and blemishes.
* The cream is dermatological tested, allergy screened, suitable for all skin types even sensitive skins. It’s free from parbens and contains no added chemicals.

Eye Cream
The Hydrating Eye Cream by Bobbi Brown works wonders by only using a little bit of product on your eyes before applying concealer and before you go to bed. Now I am not a big fan of products that claim they reduce dark circles as it is (almost) never true but the reason I like this eye cream is because it hydrates and feels light on the skin and makes my eyes look more awake.

CC Cream
Factor’s CC cream blends cucumber water, rosehip extracts and sea buckthorn together with SPF 10 sun shields. I used to use the Body Shop's BB cream but switched to the CC cream from Max Factor when it came out after reading good reviews about it. I definitely prefer it over the BB cream as it gives a bit more of a tint than the BB cream did and it is a bit less greasy in my opinion.

Face Scrub
The Philosophy microdelivery daily exfoliating wash is one of the few face scrubs that are gentle enough to use daily and doesn't leave my skin red which I'm always scared of when using a face scrub. The mild exfoliating facial skin cleanser is designed to effectively cleanse and replenish skin, while providing resurfacing benefits.

Benefits:
* A 30-second cleansing mini peel that can be conducted in the shower, in the bath or at your bathroom sink
* Regular exfoliation helps buffer fine lines, even skin tone, and give the skin a healthy glow
* Gentle enough for daily use

Face Cleanser / Make-up Remover
Bioderma Crealine H2O is a face cleanser and make-up remover that looks and feels just like water and is my favorite so far. It soothes the skin, thanks to the cucumber extract and it is also non detergent, non foaming, unperfumed, has a neutral pH and is soap free.
