This eye cream is non-greasy, can be worn easily enough under any other product and foundation and is full of rich ingredients like rosehip, vitamin A and E to help keep eyes plump, smooth and well hydrated for youthful-looking eyes.
“For the last year or more, I have searched high and low for the perfect eye cream. Trying some of the most expensive to the cheapest ones around. And, it wasn’t until I attended a Priceline event where I was given an Essano Rosehip Eye Cream to try at home I realised the perfect one was sitting there in front of me at Coles, Woolworths and Priceline all along.”
French brand La Roche-Posay are well known for their rich formulas which works to restore skin to its natural self, from hydrating, to nourishing and protecting, this Baume is testiment to the quality behind the brand. The cream is rich and thick, and ideal for skin types prone to excess dryness and itchiness.
“I was sent this Baume a month ago to try and I was absolutely amazed with the results of using this cream, even after the first day. My skin has always been dry so searching for the ultimate body cream has always been a challenge. Since using the Baume by La Roche-Posay, most mornings I wake up and don’t feel the need to apply any moisturiser at all to the body. An amazing outcome after spending nearly thirty years applying both AM and PM.”
Don’t underestimate the use of a good toner. Since the release serums and face oils toners have been sidelined as a useful product. Replaced by face mists and other varying hydrating products, Toners should still be part of your skincare routine.
Made with calming Rosewater, this toner by Swisse works to reduce redness,
“The rosewater spray toner by Swisse is fabulous and suits all skin types. I use right after showering and let it dry before using any other skincare products. Throughout the day if my skin feels dry, a light spritz on the face can make skin feel and look renewed. Just don’t spray to much after makeup application as it’s not a setting spray and may make any makeup your wearing run off.
Perfect for oily and combination skin which is prone to breakouts, this natural exfoliant for the face is a must-have in your beauty kit.
“I have been using this exfoliator by Essano now for more than three months and my skin feels amazing for it. Made with apricot kernals (as the exfoliant), aloe vera and cinnamon, I have noticed a significant reduction in skin congestion. I don’t use it everyday, and normally reserve use of this product when I am breaking out and I have noticed blemishes clear a lot faster using this product compared with others.”
Cleans pores, removes makeup and dirt and leaves skin squeeky clean. No cleanser necessary, just warm water and a Face Halo pad. The idea behind the technology of this product, is the texture of the fabric exfoliates the skin naturally to remove all grime from the skin and cleanse away dead skin cells and makeup. You will noticeably feel how clean your skin is after using.
“Despite having oily skin most days of the year, my skin does produce a regular build up of dead skin cells on a monthly basis. I am always looking for ways to clear these dead skin cells away, when I don’t have time to head to by therapist for a microderm. These pads have proven you can deeply cleanse the skin without a cleanser and without spending too much money. If you use the black version you can actually see the dead skin which has been removed. Amazing. Oh and Face Halo is also a great way for removing clay masks from your face.”
Who else loves a good face oil? The Derma.E Essentials Face Oil provides rich nourishment to the face. An on a cold day, it works well under
“Two years ago I never used to use facial oils, believing I didn’t them as my skin was already oily. I was so wrong. Face oils are perfect for any skin type, as they help to restore, balance and even hydrate the skin in times of stress and protect the skin in harsh climates, especially in winter. In Spring oils are perfect at night to richly hydrate the skin as the weather slowly begins to warm. I use this oil mostly at night, as it is richer and heavier than most.”
