There are so many amazing products that are launched every month and sometimes it can be hard to keep up so I regularly rotate my beauty products for my face, hair and body. Here are my selection of products that I have been using during the months of January and February and hope you like them as much as I do.
After trying their soap, I had to try their body wash. I love the scent of this body wash, it so calming and not overpowering. Made with Shea Butter, Oats, Aloe and Vitamin E, it gently cleanses troubled skin, leaving it soft, hydrated and balanced.
This calming mist is infused with a blend of botanical extracts to soften the skin and provide hydration. Enhanced with Rosewater and Aloe Vera to help soothe and balance the skin, and Organic Rose Hip and Vitamins C and E to help improve skin texture and tone. Perfect for these hot humid days that never seem to end. I carry this in my handbag and use it everyday. This mist leaves my skin feeling revitalised and refreshed.
A'kin Natural Deodorant - $9.99
This is one product that has truly surprised me. Contains a delicate blend of Geranium, Cedarwood and Patchouli oils for effective deodorising, leaving skin feeling clean, refreshed and comfortable. It's free from Triclosan, Aluminium and Zinc. I do love heavy duty deodorants in Summer as I feel I need it due to our intense weather. I was nervous using this as my perception of natural deodorants are not effective enough to neutralise B.O. I was extremely surprised to find how effective it actually is and enjoyed using it.
A'kin Clarifying Cleansing Mousse - $14.99
This soft liquid-to-foam cleanser is from the 'Oil Control' range and works to remove excess oil and bacteria from the skin. This non-drying formulation gently removes dirt, makeup and impurities from the skins surface and helps prevent pore blockage. Infused with a deep cleansing blend of Sugar and Amino Acids and Rosemary, Bamboo Powder to absorb oil, Ginger to calm any irritation and Flaxseed extract, a sebum controlling ingredient to leave skin feeling clean, refreshed and looking healthy. Suitable for oily and combination skin types and gentle enough for teens to use as well.
Natralus My Little One Bubble Bath - $13.99
This is for my son. He loves taking bubble baths but it's been hard to find bubble bath that contain no nasties like colour and chemicals and smell good and provide a good amount of bubbles in the tub. This bubble bath contains a blend of Paw Paw, Calendula, Chamomile and Marshmallow Extract. It leaves his skin cleansed and soft and the scent is divine. I love it. It's not just for kids, it great for adults too!
Yesto Tomatoes SnapMASK Stick - $23.99
First time in using a product from this brand. I was intrigued by this unique and innovative face mask. A first ever skin clearing mask on a stick. It's really easy to use, similar to a deodorant stick. You swipe on mask all over the face, leave on for 5 minutes and then rinse off. It really convenient and portable especially when travelling. Formulated with detoxifying charcoal for a deep skin clean and draw out any impurities, salicylic acid in Tomatoes treats blemishes and helps clear skin to prevent future breakouts from forming as well as helps to shrink large pores and brightens up your complexion.
Natural Instinct Dark Circle + Wrinkle Correction Eye Creme - $11.99
This intensive eye creme is designed to hydrate & plump the delicate layers of the eye skin, smooth fine lines, promote skin renewal and eye radiance. Contains a blend of powerful active ingredients like Troxerutin, a powerful plant derived anti-inflammatory active ingredient helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness while promoting cell renewal, Saccharide Isomerate, provides intense hydration, improves and strengthens skin barrier as well as improves skin smoothness. Coffee Seed Oil to reduce puffiness and Aloe Vera to soothe and nurture the eye area.
I used this eye creme day and night and started to see a difference around three weeks. I noticed I no longer had to use concealer around my eye area and it looked brighter and fresher. I didn't take note of the wrinkles around my eye contour before commencing using this eye creme so I can't remember if the wrinkles have diminished, plus I do not have many wrinkles around my area, my concern was mainly the puffiness and dark circles and based on that, I definitely saw a difference.
Fudge Professional Cool Brunette Shampoo & Conditioner - $23.99 each
This blue-toning duo is perfect for brunette hair. It's sulphate free, so it's safe to use if you have keratin straightened your hair. Formulated with Fudge’s max-strength blue micro-pigments that instantly knocks out unwanted red and orange tones while its unique Opti-PLEX technology penetrates deep into the hair’s core to reconstruct bonds after chemical, styling and environmental damage, as well as weightlessly soothing the cuticle. I do have a balayage with lighter ends and I was a little hesitant to use this as I thought that this would darken my hair. I was recommended this over the blonde range and I found this was quite effective in removing the warmer tones from my hair. I also love how my hair feels after using these too.
Ardell ProBrow Pomade in Medium Brown - $11.99
I recently chucked out a bunch of brow products that I had for a long time and were also finished and I discovered a box of brow products in my cupboard that I had forgotten I had put there. I pulled a few products out and found that I was reaching for the Ardell ProBrow Pomade most of the time. I have been using mainly pencils and brow gels to shape my brow so this was a new experience for me. The Pomade combines the work of a powder, pencil and gel into one easy-to-use pomade. This formula is light, highly pigmented, glides on smooth and blends effortlessly. A little goes a long way and last all day. I found that I was get the brow shape I was after a lot quicker than combining several products to do the same thing.
Skin Republic Sheet Masks - $12.99 each
I love sheets masks. I was gifted these two and was recommended to use these as a set for optimum results. The Pink Clay Mud Sheet Mask is an innovative mess-free mud mask that combines the convenience of a sheet mask with the cleansing properties of a mud mask. Purifying Pink Clay helps soothe skin and absorb toxins without over drying the skin. Rich in antioxidants Goji Berries and White Mulberries help fight against free radicals which cause premature ageing. I love clay masks and this is definitely a new way of using them.
The Retinol Hydrogel Mask is designed to instantly calm and soothe stressed out skin as well as give skin an instant boost of hydration. Contains a blend of powerful ingredients like retinol which helps to support natural collagen, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and increase skin's elasticity. Other ingredients include Chamomile, Peony, Jojoba and Hyaluronic Acid. I've only used this once but like the way my skin felt and looked after using it. This is a product I think needs to be used regularly to see long term results and will be purchasing this to add to my skincare routine. This is a range that I am definitely intrigued and will be trying out more masks from this brand.
