Skin Care has always been something I have been passionate about and I am a religious skin care fanatic, I literally cannot fall asleep with Make Up on. However, Skin Care can get a little confusing and is a bit intimidating when you are getting into it, because of this I always like to keep my basic, always in my collection products that are tried and tested.
The Kate Sommerville CytoCell Dark Circle Correct Eye Cream is a huge staple in my collection, it is a brightening and refining eye cream that is perfect for those of us who want to use a great eye cream but don’t need the full on Anti-Aging benefits that are very popular right now. This cream is designed to brighten up dark circles and even out the complexion of the skin by increasing blood flow to the area and calming the skin down. This cream works best applied both morning and night and sits just fine under make up. I love this stuff, it is one of the only eye creams I have noticed a difference with using.
I originally picked up the Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins to use are a refining night cream, as the packaging says, however I actually love this stuff as my day cream. Most of Origins creams are water based and absorb into the skin almost immediately which is awesome. I have the Oil free version which is why I feel it works under make up, it doesn’t add a whole lot of oil to my already oily skin throughout the day, but I am still getting the skin renewal benefits all day long. I have noticed my skin evening out a lot since using this consistently and will continue to use this for the foreseeable future.
Antipodes is an awesome brand in general but my favourite product they make is the Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream. This is my all time favourite night cream, I love it. This is a rich luxurious cream that is softly scented with a sweet but natural scent that feels so incredible being applied to the face. This cream doesn’t leave me oily or makes my skin feel weighty but is so nourishing and healing for the skin surface. If you are in the market for a Night Cream I highly recommend this.
The oldest favourite on the list is the Origins Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Mask. This is a fabulous charcoal mask that is great for keeping the skin even and fresh whilst not being too stripping or harsh on the skin. When using this mask regularly I notice a significant reduction in the oxidation of my make up which is awesome. I also notice less oil in general and a much nicer skin surface.
And finally we have the Glam Glow Super Mud, I don’t know where to start with this product, it is actually a wonder product. This is a mud mask designed to draw out imperfection and oil in the skin whilst killing the bacteria to make sure you do not continue to break out. My skin has changed 10 fold since using this product, my skin is clear and my oil levels are completely under control. I do not recommend this for consistent use if you have dry skin but anyone with normal to very oily skin will love this!
