Review: Sukin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

 Hi everyone,

I have just started to use the Rosehip Oil from Sukin as part of my evening skincare routine. It has been years since I have used a Rosehip Oil within my skincare routine; and I had forgotten how nice it is to have Rosehip Oil as part of skincare routine.

- The Sukin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is a multi use product
- It contains 70% essential fatty acids, which aid and maintain the healthy building blocks of the skin
- It also contains vitamins that help to soothe, soften and hydrate the skin
- The Sukin Certified Organic Rosehip Oil also contains nourishing properties helps to reduce the appearance of scars as well as combat the signs of ageing.
- Feeds the skin nutrients and it can be used regularly to help relieve redness due to dry and itchy skin
- Maintains the skin's optimal health
- Fast absorbing oil leaves the skin looking and feeling radiant and healthy

This is a lovely Rosehip Oil to use as part of any skincare routine, and it has been a good few years since I have used a good Rosehip Oil. I love to use this Rosehip Oil as the final step of my facial oils before I apply my moisturiser in my evening skincare routine.

This Rosehip Oil sinks into the straight away, and it gives my skin a boost of nourishment and makes it feel a lot more supple and hydrated. It has quite a thick consistency, but I think that is due to how concentrated it is. But, it does sink into the skin straight away and you only need a few drops to get the job done.

I had actually forgotten how nice it is to have a Rosehip Oil within my skincare routine, as I have started to notice a difference in how my skin feels overall. It feels nourished, plump and nowhere near as dry as it once was.

Review: DaJan Organics Mood Boost Shower Steamers

 Hi everyone,

I have been using the Mood Boost Shower Steamers from DaJan Organics, and these are absolutely lovely to use while in the shower just to make it a more enjoyable experience.

- Jasmine & Vanilla fragrance oils awaken the senses
- Enjoy the mood boost for the day ahead
- Comes in a pack of three
- Each shower steamer lasts between 1 - 2 showers

I love using these little shower steamers while I'm having a shower, as they create a lovely light scented atmosphere. The Jasmine & Vanilla is absolutely delightful to use, as it just provides a light burst of fragrance to the shower without it being overpowering.

The shower steamers work in a similar way to a bath bomb, and you just add these into the shower while you are in there and it will gently release the fragrance. 

NB) Don't put these near the plug hole, as they will just go straight down the drain. You need to place it just in front of you, but to the side. That way the water isn't pounding it, and you should be able to get another use of it once you finished your shower.

Review: Summer Fridays Super Amino Gel Cleanser

 Hi everyone,

I have recently started to use the Summer Fridays Super Amino Gel Cleanser as part of my morning skincare routine.

- A gentle pH balancing gel cleanser that treats skin to a restoring cocktail of 11 amino acids with a splash of mineral rich seawater
- Leaves skin feeling clean & nourished
- Gentle enough for all skin types

This a lovely lightweight gel cleanser that nourishes the while cleansing. It does foam up, but not as much as other gel cleansers; and I think that is due to being a more 'natural' cleanser. 

When I first started using this cleanser I was using just a pump at a time, but it was cleansing my skin as well as I was hoping for. So, I increased the amount to two pumps, and it suits my skin perfectly. On the plus side it doesn't leave my skin feeling stripped, despite this being a mild clarifying cleanser.

This cleanser does have a mild fragrance, but its nothing too overpowering.

This is a lovely gentle gel cleanser to use in the mornings, as it isn't stripping to the skin. It also leaves the skin feeling nourished and ready for the next stage of the skincare routine.

Review: DaJan Organics Sandalwood & Patchouli Moisturising Body Oil

Hi everyone,

I have been using the Sandalwood & Patchouli Moisturising Body Oil from DaJan Organics for well over a month, and it is such a lovely body product to use just after you come out of the shower.

- Sandalwood moisturising body oil is a luxurious blend of sweet almond, hazelnut, jojoba & Argan oils
- These oils quickly absorb into the skin, leaving it feeling softened, moisturised & hydrated without it feeling greasy
- Promotes a healthy looking complexion
- Fragranced with Sandalwood, Patchouli & Ylang Ylang essential oils

I have really enjoyed using this moisturising body oil after I have come out of the shower, as you really can feel it sinking into your skin. I also really enjoy the relaxing fragrance that this body oil has. 

This body oil sinks into my straight away, and not only does it smell amazing with the Sandalwood & Patchouli fragrance; but it also leaves my body feeling both moisturised and hydrated. Also, you only don't need to use a lot of this body oil as a little bit goes a very long way.

I also like to combine this with the Ylang Ylang & Lavender Room & Linen Mist by spraying the room & linen mist on my pillow before I go to bed. It creates a lovely calm atmosphere before I go to sleep and it also relaxes me into a sleep. I actually sleep a little too well with this combination of products.

They also have another body oil that I'm interested in picking up and seeing if it is just as nice as this one.

They also have their own website www.soapyskin.co.uk, and there you will be able to browse all of their lovely products.

Review: Herbivore Prism Exfoliating Serum

 Hi everyone,

I have just started to use the Herbivore Prism Exfoliating Serum as part of my Sunday evening skincare routine, due to running out of my Pixi Overnight Glow Serum.

- 12% AHA & 3% BHA
- A blend of natural AHAs including lactic, glycolic & Malic acids plus a concentration of natural BHA Willow Bark to exfoliate dead skin cells to reveal smooth, bright & glowing skin.

Key Ingredients
Bilberry Lactic Acid - A natural AHA to gently exfoliate & reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Sugar Glycolic & Malic Acids - Natural AHAs to visibly improve skintone & texture
Willow Bark - A natural BHA to clarify & tone
Aloe & Rose Water - A duo of soothing botanical waters to calm & hydrate skin

This is a lovely exfoliating serum from Herbivore. It has a lovely lightweight texture that sinks into the skin straight away, but it leaves my skin slightly hydrated and not stripped unlike the Pixi Overnight Glow serum which I was using before hand.

It caught me by surprise the first time I used this serum, as I had forgotten how intense the serums from Herbivore could be. But, the more I have used this serum the more my skin has got used to this serum and it isn't as intense anymore. I can still feel this serum working once it has been applied to my skin, but its nowhere near as bad as the first time around.

I've found that I only need to use a couple of drops of this serum due to its lightweight formulation. I have noticed that my skin does feel smoother the following morning after I have used this serum.

If you do have sensitive skin, and are interested in trying this serum I would try and get a sample to try before investing into the full size. I'm just going off how intense I found this serum to be the first time I used it, and it could be a little bit too much for someone who has really sensitive skin.
