Hello again!I hope your all enjoying the weather and the weekend. I intend to make the most of the bank holiday. I've been a bit slack on posting this week but sometimes you need to take a step back to feel motivated again. That and I've also been working hard on a new project and enjoying the products I bought from MAC's aquatic collection (you can see that post here).
Today, I wanted to give a mention to three products I've been absolutely loving lately. These are all products that work really well and have pretty much blown me away. First up, I've been using a new night cream for the past few weeks. Since turning thirty, a night cream has been pretty much staple in my skincare routine - I need a cream that's going to tackle those first signs of ageing, such as fine lines. Thats where Ren's V-Cense Revitalising Night Cream* comes in. I haven't used many Ren products before (heads up - theres a free Ren hot cloth cleanser with next months instyle magazine) so I'm not overly familiar with the brand but Ren pride themselves on offering clean skincare (without parabens, mineral oil, sulfates and the like) and groundbreaking formulations. The V-Cense Revitalising Night Cream tackles the first signs of ageing and fatigue, evens skin tone and hydrates. For me, it does all these things and more. After a few weeks, my skin feels so much plumper, with the skin around my jaw feeling firmer. This night cream has a pump bottle, which is so much more hygienic than your average pot. As a germaphobe, I love pump bottles!When its dispensed, the cream reminds me of a body lotion as its quite thick but it soaks in fairly quickly and doesn't leave behind any residue. As well as helping to smooth fine lines, it also keeps my skin feeling moisturised and I really think it would work well on the majority of skin types, even sensitive due to the formula not being too heavy or filled with 'nasty' ingredients.
A makeup product I've loved since I very first purchased it is the Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in candlelight. I got mine in a gift set but I think the actual compact doesn't come with a brush anymore. Celestial powder is a finely milled highlighting powder in a light golden beige shade. This is by far, the best highlighter I've ever used - its smooth, soft, delivers a gorgeous glow and wears well throughout the day. You can really get a subtle radiant finish with a small dusting of powder or build it up for extra sheen. Its pricey but worth splurging out for in my opinion, especially if you love wearing highlighter on a regular basis.
Finally, a hair product I use every day is the Phyto Keratine Reparative Serum for damaged ends. This creamy serum can be used before or after styling to reconstruct and hydrate hair ends. It contains keratin and hyaluronic acid to add strength and shine.I like to use this on the very ends of my hair as this is where my hair is the most dryest and damaged. Its such a brilliant product for restoring hair back to health - my hair feels stronger, I have less split ends and as the texture is lightweight, I can also use it as a smoothing cream. I managed to find this in TK Maxx for a fiver and I'm gutted I didn't buy a backup but I will repurchase as full price as its made a real difference since I started using it.
Have you tried any of these?
