Skin Rescue for Chilly January



Christmas is a time of indulgence.  Too much Wine, too much pudding and in my case too much cheese.  Last year January hit and my skin went into panic mode. It was cold, very cold, and my skin was dry and blotchy for what felt like months.  This year I decided to save my skin and help out anyone else with the same problems.  Skin care products are everywhere and it can be confusing and expensive trying to find those miracle cures.  I have tried hundreds, and some stand out above all the rest.  Over the next few weeks I will update you on those fabulous products that you almost want to be kept secret!

Firstly my skin.  Obviously everyones is different.  Mine is pale, normal to dry, fine in summer, dryer in winter.  I get the odd blemish, but on the whole it looks ok.  How it feels is another matter though.  Some moisturizers just aren't enough and still leave it dry to touch.  If your skin is similar then I would seriously give these products a go...

Firstly, one of the winners.  Elemental Herbology is a Luxury beauty brand that focuses on balancing natural unique and powerful ingredients to produce their amazing collections.  I tried the Moisture Replenish Cell Pumping Moisturizer and am now hooked.  It is one of the best everyday moisturizers I have tried - ever.  It is light to put on but very moisturizing. It smells divine, even commented on by my boyfriend who rarely notices anything like this.  I used it a few times as a mask, putting it on thickly and within 20 minutes it had fully soaked in.  it has SPF 8 and really plumps up your skin, making a lovely base to add foundation or a tinted moisturizer.  It is rich in Omega 3, 6, and 9 to help repare and hydrate the skin - and it does!  The 50ml jar is available from the lovely site and retails at £42.  It is worth every penny.

The second product which is a January Skin Treat is the Purify and Soothe Facial Cleanser.  This is a soft, almost wax like product that you rub between your fingers for a few seconds and then massage warm on to the face and rinse off.  It leaves my skin so soft, like i have been washing in the finest honey, but doesn't irritate at all.  Some of these products can be too rich, but this is so light and creamy.  I have been using ever few days and it has given me baby soft skin.  This retails at £28.

This is a brand that previously I hadn't heard much about and now it is in my Must Haves.  I cant wait to try other products by the Brand, including the delicious looking body washes and moisturizers.  I hope you enjoy them too xx
