The skin is our biggest organ and it is no secret that I love looking after mine. I’ve written previously on the importance of SPF for protecting our skin and I here are a few of the products that I absolutely adore and use to keep my skin soft, clear and hydrated.
Kiehl’s Pineapple Papaya Facial Scrub is one of my all time favourite face cleansers, I use it every three days (when I don’t use this I use Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser). It is an amazing scrub, it exfoliates without being too harsh on the face and it smells delicious, I always enjoy using this product and my skin feels smooth afterwards.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream really does live up to it’s cult status, not only does it keep skin hydrated, I have used it in the past as a primer, on my lips, on my hands and it is wonderful. It has quite a thick consistency which I really prefer, it feels more like skin food. With SPF 15 it is also a great protectant.
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is an amazing product, I put this on before bed religiously and wake up with the softest most supple feeling skin, it is one of those products that I will use for the rest of my life. Not only does it make skin feel amazing and look younger, just three drops of this repairs skin using essential oils which are also very relaxing before bedtime.
Elemis Body Brush is relatively new to my routine however I have already seen the changes, my circulation is better and my skin is looking a lot better by using this everyday before getting in the shower, the benefits also help me feel more awake in the morning which is perfect when I’m feeling groggy.
Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Scrub is hands down the best scrub I have ever used, it is full of nutrients which enhance skin while exfoliating and skin looks and feels amazing after using this product. It smells divine and is pretty cheap, there really isn’t any excuse not to se this wonder-product.
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps is the brand’s signature product and it is no surprise, this moisturiser is nourishing, smoothing and smells bloody good, a little always goes a long way and there is nothing like getting out of the shower and putting this on. There are quite a few iterations of this cult product, their whipped soy butter is pretty amazing however the original is a product I will be using forever.
Egyptian Magic Cream is a multipurpose miracle balm which can be used to moisturise, soothe and heal, my favourite uses include relieving sun burn and wearing with gloves or socks overnight for completely moisturised hands and feet.
Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve is my favourite hand cream, I use it all day everyday and it keeps my hands in check year round including the coldest of winter days, it kees my skin hydrated and completely protecting.
Aveda Lip Saver truly saved my lips, it is the perfect lip balm, is it nourishing, healing, lasts for ages and has a fresh zesty aroma. It is the perfect medicine for chapped lips, also being non addictive, your lips won’t completely dry out if you don’t apply it religiously.
RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream is an absolute miracle. I know you may already be bored of hearing about coconut cream but this is my current favourite product, I am completely in love! I use this product to moisturise, cleanse and much more, my two favourite uses are make up removal (it revolutionised the way I take off eye make up) and as a mask in a hot bath (I apply liberally all over my face and let it sink in for 30 minutes). This product is all natural and will leave skin feeling and looking amazing.
These are just a few of my favourite products which is an ever evolving list, do you use any of these products or can you top them?
Next I am looking for a brightening moisturiser so any recommendations would be fabulous.
