January is the perfect month to refresh your beauty regime. I don’t know about you but my skin was crying out for some love after all the bad December living. So, I decided it was time for a change and thought I’d share with you my new LOVE products.
I’ve been using Liz Earle’s famous hot cloth cleanser on and off for years. My mum (who really should have been a beauty expert) introduced me to it years ago and I loved it! I really got into the ritual of its two-phase, cleanse and polish beauty-rule and my skin really seems to like it. It’s been a staple in my beauty cabinet ever since but, I tend to go through phases of using it.
I’m all over it again, however, thanks to this incredible limited edition version I received for Christmas.
Daily Cleanse (morning & evening)
This Sweet Orange & Mint cleanser is just so flippin’ lovely. It contains sweet orange oil and crushed peppermint as well as cocoa butter, rosemary and chamomile…mmmm. The scent is WOW and it actually feels like an instant beauty hit for your face. I’ve been using it every day since the start of the NY and it’s perked my skin right up. I’d highly recommend it as a daily cleanser, especially if your skin is a little sensitive, like mine. I guess that’s if you can still get your hands on it. What’s with the limited edition?! This beauty treat needs to stay!
Beauty blast (weekly)
I HEART Eve Lom’s cleanser so much. I haven’t used it for a couple of years so felt the time was right to get back on it. Again, it offers a thrilling beauty ceremony involving a muslin cloth, which works wonders on your skin. It’s slightly more expensive though so this year, I’m using it as a weekly beauty blaster. With its cleansing and exfoliation double-whammy, this involves a weekly mini-facial. Start by massaging the balm into your face for around two mins. Then leave it to work its magic for five more mins, before polishing off with the cloth. It’s a little bit of pamper-me time at home and, my face is showing its appreciation. Try it!
Moisturise (morning & evening)
I’ve been using Decleor’s Harmonie Calm Cream for a few years now. It’s an amazing moisturiser but my skin was needing a change. So, I decided to give Liz Earle’s new superskin moisturiser with natural neroli a go. And I’ve not been disappointed! This moisturiser has collagen boosting ingredients such as cranberry seed, pomegranate and rosehip oils and is pitched as the perfect product for mature or very dry skin. Just what my face needs at this time of year. A little goes a long way too – definitely a new beauty favourite!
