April Favourites

Happy bank holiday weekend and I hope that you have all had a good week. It’s time for a monthly favourites post and this month it’s all about skincare and home furnishings. *Some products have been gifted.

These two Dermalogica products have been firm favourites this month. I am always so grateful to Dermalogica who send me their new products as a #skinfluencer – thank you! I mentioned the ‘Powerbright Dark Spot Serum’ last month but I couldn’t give it a full review as I had only just started using it. After using this for about two months, I have been really impressed with the results. I had some darker spots on my skin from scarring and pigmentation and using this serum has definitely faded some of those areas. Such a great product 🙌🏼

The second product that has made the favourites list from Dermalogica was sent to me a couple of weeks ago and is the ‘Melting Moisture Masque’. I get quite dry skin from time to time and a tiny amount of this keeps my skin feeling so hydrated for hours. The product turns from a balm to oil upon application and just melts into your skin. I would even go as far as saying that this is one of my favourite Dermalogica products of all time! This is definitely worth checking out if you want something deeply nourishing and rehydrating.

Origins Ginzing range has been a go-to for me for the past five or six months. I don’t like to really wear makeup in the summer months so this tinted moisturiser is perfect and has SPF40. I have also switched out my concealer for under my eyes for this eye cream which has made my daily makeup routine a lot quicker. It brightens and refreshes and no creases!

I used to be really into doing my brows and then couldn’t be bothered with how long it all took. Anyone else go through that phase? I hadn’t used anything on them for years until I found this organic product by Lavera on Amazon. It is a clear styling gel which I apply and brush through in an upwards motion to give the appearance of thicker brows. Now I use this every day and it takes seconds.

The final skincare/makeup product on the favourites list this month is the ‘Ride or Die’ lip balm from Elf in shade peach. A little goes a long way and it is such a gorgeous colour.

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know how much I love interiors and home styling. I was on the hunt for the perfect cushion covers for spring and summer and found this gorgeous lemon print from Dunelm along with a block blue colour and this French Toile De Jouy design on eBay. When put together, all of the designs worked perfectly with the striped Vinegar Hill cushions.

Finally, I wanted to touch on some of my favourite ceramic pieces for this month. I have always loved blue and white ceramics but was never bold enough to bring them into my home until I saw it so beautifully done over on Instagram. I trawled Ebay and found the two small vases and the candlestick holder and then saw this gorgeous plant pot on Amazon. I love how these pieces stand out in my home yet still work with the more neutral and green tones.

I hope that you all have a fantastic long weekend and enjoy the breaks in the weather. Fingers crossed for some sun!

Dermalogica

Last month I was lucky enough to join the Dermalogica family as a #skinfluencer. After using some of Dermalogica’s products in my skin routine for a month now, I thought I would write a blog post about what I love about them, how I use them and how they have worked for me.

I use the products below in the order I have written about them and I use them every other day in my skin routine. I will link all of the products too.

  1. Precleanse

This product is one of favourites from Dermalogica. I use one pump of this oil-busting emulsifyer and rub it into my skin in a circular motion. It melts away any waterproof mascara, sun cream and build up on your skin. I love using this because it makes my skin feel so clean after use.

2. Special Cleansing Gel

After I use the Precleanse, I use this gentle foaming cleanser. It lathers up really well with water and contains naturally-foaming Quillaja Saponaria which gently rinses away any dirt or debris on your skin. Some days I will only use this product if I don’t have time for a full skin care routine. This is a great face wash for every day.

3. Daily Microfiliant

This is an amazing product! I have tried so many different exfoliators for the face but this one just beats all of them. It is a bit pricey however it is the one exfoliator I have used that really deeply cleans. Rice-based powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to polish skin to perfection. I have to say that after using this for a month three or four times a week my skin has been glowy, smooth and flawless. This is an award winning product and I can see why!

4. Skin Smoothing Cream

Some days I will just pop this on after I have used the gel and I really love this moisturiser. It’s a new product from Dermalogica and it features state-of-the-art Active HydraMesh Technology™ to infuse skin with 48 hours of continuous hydration and help protect against environmental stress. It does what it says on the tin and my skin stays feeling hydrated after a night of sleep for the day if I have used it in the evening.

5. SkinPerfect SPF30 Primer

I do not tend to use this with the moisturiser because I felt when I did that I had layered too much onto my face. This is one of the best primers I have used for even and smooth coverage. Also the fact that it has SPF30 is just amazing! It keeps make up in place all day and with its velvety feel it creates a smooth surface for your skin.

*I have not been asked to write this by Dermalogica and in no way am I not affiliated with any of the links above.* I just wanted to write an honest review about an amazing skincare brand that I have absolutely loved using. Yes, it is a little pricey but it is totally worth it and I have seen such amazing results.
