Monthly skin/face care favourites

I can’t belive it’s March already! This year is flying by so quickly. I have spent the last 2 months testing and trying out a lot of fabulous skincare items. The products mentioned below are my top favourites, I can categorically say that they work for me. These products were gifted to me by the companies and I am truly grateful that I get to share them with you all. Please note that prgifts never sway my opinions about a product, they either work or they don’t!

In no particular order

1: Neutrogena visibly clear pink grapefruit daily scrub

According to boots.com:

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub is an uplifting daily scrub for clearer, fresher and healthier looking skin everyday. With powerful MICROCLEAR® technology and naturally-derived exfoliators, the formula unclogs pores to clean deeply and help eliminate spots and blemishes. The refreshing scrub gently purifies the skin without overdrying, while a wave of pink grapefruit uplifts the senses with a burst of invigorating freshness!

My findings

As you know, I wear makeup almost everyday. As a result the need for a daily exfoliator is paramount. This daily scrub is gentle on my sensitive skin, it cleans out my pores without causing any dryness. Which means it will also be ideal for dry skin. I tend to concentrate the scrub on my most problematic areas, spending time cleaning it day and night. If you are on the look out for a gentle daily exfoliator then this is for you.

Who doesn’t love a bit of Pixi?

2: Pixi Beauty glow tonic

It is no secret that I live for Pixibeauty products but this guy is the GOAT.

According to the Pixibeauty website, it:

• Exfoliates and purifies the skin with Glycolic Acid
• Ginseng improves circulation and energizes
• Aloe vera soothes and hydrates
• Refines the appearance of pores
• Gently accelerates cell renewal to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion
• Balances, heals and soothes for radiant, healthier looking skin
• Alcohol free
• Suitable for all skin types
• Not tested on animals

My findings

I can tell you from first hand that this product works, point blank. There is no sugar coating, it does exactly what it says on the tin. I have seen a massive improvement in my skin since using this product, it is one of those products you have to be diligent twith for you to reap the rewards. I love the fact that it works on all skin types, it lifts any left over dirt from your skin thereby allowing your natural glow to shine through. It contains 5% Glycolic acid which gently wipes away impurities in the pores. It also contains Aloe Vera which soothes and hydrates the skin.

One thing I would say is try not to use the product around your eye area as it stings and may cause your eyes to feel a bit dry (though it doesn’t contain Alchol).

3. Pixi Beauty rose caviar essence

According to Pixibeauty website:

Encapsulated flower oils suspended in this weightless serum-essence melt onto the skin delivering fresh botanicals to hydrate and restore skin’s brightness for optimum radiance
• Formulated with antioxidant rich natural oils, this formula will soften, refine and tone
• Suited for all skin types
• Not tested on animals
• Paraben free

My findings

There are flower oils suspended in the serum which dissolves into the skin when applied. This hydrates and restores life to my skin and gives an immediate radiance to my face and pores. I apply this product in a patting motion after using my face wash and toner. You have to allow it dry into the skin and neck area before moving on to the next product.

I also love the fact that it is suitable for all skin types.

4. Pixi Beauty rose oil blend

According to Pixi Beauty website:

• This botanical blend is infused with a powerful complex of youth-preserving oils to help improve skin’s elasticity and glow
• Sweet almond, rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate seed, and rose geranium oils nourish the complexion
• Leaves skin comforted and smooth to the touch
• Suited on all skin types
• Not tested on animals
• Paraben free
• 30ml / 1.01 fl.oz

My findings

Let me just start off by saying; this is the best facial oil I have ever used….. and I have used a lot. You can mix the oil into your moisturiser for added hydration or use it on its own. I tend to use it after applying the rose caviar essence and then I apply my moisturiser. Doing this does not cause my skin to be overly oily or slippery, it gives the perfect level of moisture my skin needs and it sits perfectly under my makeup.

I have been using this product religiously every day and night for the past 2weeks and I can definitely say it has improved my skins elasticity and plumpness. My skin feels soft to the touch and looks very healthy plus it suitable for all skin types, what more could you ask for?

5. Pixi Beauty rose ceramide cream

According to Pixi Beauty website:

Rich, luxurious formula delivers deep, long lasting nourishment. Powerful antioxidants help fortify skin and protect against free-radicals. Quickly absorbs, improving skin’s elasticity and feel. 
• Rose Flower Oil nourishes & restores 
• Ceramides provide time-release moisture 
• Probiotics protect & balance 
• Volume: 50ml / 1.70 fl oz

My findings

This is an intensive moisturiser infused with rose flower oil. Similar to the oil, it helps improves elasticity and and provides lasting hydration. This has a more powerful blend of antioxidants and probiotics which helps to protect the skin against ageing effects of the environment.

I apply this product after cleansing, toning, hydrating and moisturising. It gives that extra layer of hydration any skin type can appreciate.

6. Oil Immanuel body oil with Frankincense

This handmade oil is an enriching fragrant Body Oil with pure Frankincense.

My findings

I have been on the look out for a really hydrating body oil for the driest parts of my body; my feet, elbows and knees. This body oil is hand made and has hydrating ingredients like castor oil and ricinoleic acid which helps to lock in moisture for longer. The Frankincense gives this product a relaxing smell that lasts. This product has no preservatives, no toxic chemicals, cruelty free and hand made from plant oils.

Well that’s all folks, I am still trying out a few more skincare items that I hope to share with you all soon. Please let me know what skincare items you are loving and most excited about.

Love,
