Moisturise and Shine

So if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know I’m not exactly Miss Skin Care. I don’t cleanse, tone and moisturise every day (soz) but there are a few skin care products I’ve been really loving lately.

The first is Weleda Skin Food. I got a tube for my Birthday and I really like it, it says it can be used anywhere on the body but I uses it mainly as a hand cream. As I’ve gotten older my hands constantly feel like they’re dry and this really helps. It’s quite a thick, balmy formula but it sinks into the skin well and doesn’t leave you feeling too greasy. It is really rehydrating but from the buzz around it I was expecting it to totally blow me away, which it didn’t. It is a good product though, it does what it says on the tin. It hasn’t transformed my hands by any means but it has loads of nourishing ingredients and smells really good! The only thing is I wish it had SPF in it. Can’t win ’em all!



The next product is the Liz Earle Superskin Unfragranced Moisturiser*. I really like this stuff. I hate putting anything too greasy or rich on my face on a daily basis so this moisturiser is great for me, its super light and absorbs well into the skin and as its unfragranced its ideal for sensitive skin. As I said it isn’t very rich so might not be great if you have particularly dry skin but it’s perfect for oily old me.



The final item is the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Super Rich Body Butter. This was another Birthday gift and I have to admit, at first glance I was like, “Wow, a huge tube of face cream!” (The “Amazing Face” thing threw me ok?!) It’s a very rich body moisturiser that’s similar in consistency to the Weleda Skin food, it’s quite thick and needs a bit of working into the skin, so maybe not great if you’re in a mad rush but otherwise wonderful. It feels very luxurious and left my skin feeling really soft. I’m trying not to use it everyday so it lasts but its proving quite difficult!





Thank you to all the lovely people who gave me these treats, I’m sure I will be re-purchasing!
