It’s this time of year that I feel like my skin needs a do-over, and that means lots of pamper evenings, bubble baths, face masks and serious skin nourishment.
With London Fashion Week drawing to an end my dull skin definitely is in need of some TLC, and here are the products i’ll be reaching for.
Firstly, the Microderma Scrub and Masque from One Love Organics – a DIY treat for dull skin. For a luxurious tightening masque you can mix 1 tsp of the scrub with 2 tsp of water, or for an even more pampering treat do as I do, and mix 2 tsps of plain Greek yogurt and leave on for 10-15 mins before rinsing with warm water.
Also from One Love Organics, the Easy Does It foaming cleanser is a great natural alternative to the high street cleansers pumped with chemicals – this cleanser is made from a unique combination of Chilean soap bark, cold-pressed apple oil and vegetable glycerin.
A product which I purchased after reading reviews on several beauty blogs is the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. The primer had been hailed as the budget equivalent to the Benefit’s Porefessional and I couldn’t wait to try it out myself.
The formula is like a silicone gel, and you can apply before or after makeup. I apply it after my moisturiser and allow it to settle (while I put the kettle on!) before applying foundation. It smooths the surface of the skin and makes foundation look more flawless upon application.
I have found that my makeup has been lasting longer since I started using this product, with less need to touch up at lunch time, however I have also recently switched to Nars powder, so I can’t be sure if that is down to the Baby Skin alone.
At just £7.99 from boots, it’s definitely worth a try!
