February (new) Favourites and an Annoucement!

IMG_4537

I am so excited to tell you about this month’s favourite products because it’s also a sneaky preview of what’s to come over the next few weeks that I can’t wait to get started. As some of you will know, I travel quite a bit and this month already I have spent about two weeks in England and now I am back in Europe again, but this time for quite a bit longer. Because of this, I have decided that from March I will be starting a “Best of British” series where I highlight some of my new favourite British beauty brands as well as review new products from ones I have used and loved for years. Not only that, as my travels will take me to multiple cities, I will also be including reviews of products from new and old favourite European brands because there is such a wealth of skincare goodness over this side of the world. So to get started, I will give you a very brief introduction to each product I have been loving lately but don’t worry – you will be hearing much more from all of these brands over the coming weeks.

Top Three Purifying Serums: Kypris Clearing Serum, Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum And Bravura London 2% Salicylic Acid Peel Review

Serums are such an important step in our skincare routine and because I have combination skin, having a great purifying one is essential to keeping my complexion balanced, clear and smooth. Over the years I have used some pretty harsh ones (high alcohol content etc) that have left my skin irritated, dry and flaky but these three have been complete heroes for me. I wanted to do a post about them together because not everyone with acne or who is acne prone needs the same thing but between these serums there is an option for every skin type, acne level, ingredients preference and budget.

The Oskia Review: Renaissance Cleansing Gel, Eye Wonder Serum and Renaissance 360 Supreme Cream

My love affair with Oskia began over two years ago with the release of their now cult product – the Renaissance Cleansing Gel. Since then, I have tried and loved multiple products from the beautiful line and in this post I am finally going to do a review of the cleanser that started it all, as well as the Eye Wonder Serum and the soon to be released Renaissance 360 Supreme Cream.

One of the things I love most about Oskia is their commitment to scientifically driven, plant based nutritional skincare. The founder, Georgie Cleeve, understood the need for both nature and science and combined both to create a thoughtful range of products that nurture the skin and actually work. Oskia are focused on healthy skin and all of their products are packed with vitamins, minerals, omegas and bio-actives to help their customers achieve the healthiest skin from the inside and out. There are no extravagant, unrealistic claims with Oskia and they fully acknowledge and advocate that healthy skin must be cultivated from within, but they also understand that what we put on our skin can really make a difference and their products definitely do that.
