Natural Beauty: My Favourite Products
I love playing with beauty products and trying new lotions and potions! It’s really exciting seeing how many awesome natural brands there are now and even better their products are actually amazing – I feel that they nurture and nourish my skin so much better than any conventional product. I’ve recently discovered a few new products, which I’m quite obsessed with, so I thought I should give you an insight into what my bathroom staples are at the moment as lots of you ask about what I use on a daily basis.
Cleanser: Pai skincare is one of my favourite brands, their products are so great. I absolutely love their Camellia & Rose Cleanser – it feels almost fluffy and my skin always feels so soft and clean after I use it!
Facial moisturiser: I also love Pai’s chamomile and rosehip day cream. I’ve been using it for a while now and I still love it – I’ve tried lots of other brands in between but I keep coming back to this one, it’s just the best. It’s really light and smells so yum.
Beauty/facial oil: I only recently discovered a brand called Ila Spa and I’m in love with so many of their products already. Everything I’ve tried is great but they have one special product, which I can’t get enough of – their face oil for glowing radiance. I’ve been using it every night for the last month or so and just love it. I honestly look forward to the time that I put it on. It’s smells of roses, which is amazing, and I love how it makes my skin feel when I wake up in the morning!
Body moisturiser and make up remover: I’m still obsessed with using coconut oil as a moisturiser, it’s just the best as it smells so good and it really deeply moisturises. It is pretty greasy but I just use it once or twice a week when I go to bed and it does wonders. It’s also still my favourite make up remover, honestly nothing else ever works as well – it just melts all the make up off and it glides off your face so easily!
Lip balm: I’ve been using this skin and tonic lip balm for a while, it’s so great and it smells so good! I get nervous with using chemical filled lip balms as they go into your mouth so I’m always so excited by a good natural one.
Face mask: this facemask by Dr Alkaitis is a dream, I only use it once a month or so but it’s incredible. I mix it with a little manuka honey and coconut yoghurt to create the most soothing, restorative mask that really works to get you glowing!
Hand cream: I use a Dr Haushka hand cream, it’s a good skinny size so you can carry it around with you and it just really nourishes and softens your hands. I spend a lot of time cooking and therefore a lot of time washing up so this is my saviour!
Deodorant: I’ve been pretty obsessed with this Burt’s Bees deodorant for a while, it’s hard to track down though sadly, but it’s worth it! It only has a couple of ingredients and it smells so good as it’s made from sage, lemon, and lavender.
