Introducing my winter beauty saviors
Body Shop Vitamin C Cleansing Polish: Gentle enough to use everyday, I use this at night to get off every last scrap of make-up, it also gets rid of dry skin and Vitamin C is great for brightening up a dull complexion.
Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator: Hefty price tag on this, I got it at duty free for £50 (think I was in holiday 'fuck it' mode) but it does work and has helped fade out some of the blemish scars I had. I like to put it on in the morning before moisturizer and give my face a good massage with it for a couple of minutes, doing this really works to brighten and wake up my face, I recommend trying this technique with any illuminator...the way a product is applied can make all the difference.
Clarins HydraQuench Cream Mask: This came as part of a free Clarins gift bag, its amazing, its suppose to be applied for ten mins then wiped off but I usually leave it on longer/forget about it. My skin is usually blemish prone/oily but this doesn't bother it at all so I use it 2-3 times a week since in the winter my forehead and cheeks get a little dry.
L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil: This is my favourite hair product at the moment, I use it when my hair is wet and it dries naturally so soft and smooth. I find argan oil is too heavy for my hair but this is just right and can be used on dry hair to smooth and add shine to coloured hair thats taken a bit of a battering like mine has.
Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream: Another freebie that has become a permanent addition to my handbag. This leaves my hands feeling velvety smooth without being sticky, it soaks in right away and I like to rub it into my cuticles too.
