I think that skincare is probably my number one obsession in the beauty department. Obviously I don’t shy away from make-up, hair care and all the rest of it, but skin care has a special place in my heart. Perhaps it’s the alluring call of a new product whispering ‘buy me, I will make your skin perfect‘ or perhaps I’m just nuts. Who knows. Today I’m letting you in on the bits that I’m currently obsessed with, and you guessed it, they almost all revolve around skin care.
Face: I’m on a perpetual quest to find the perfect moisturiser, and I’ve come to the conclusion that a gals just got to have a few choices, to cater to the current skin care dilemma. When my skin is looking dull and I’m feeling just a little bit ‘meh,’ I reach for the Origins Gin Zing Energy-boosting moisturizer. It smells incredibly zesty, and gives tired complexions a kick up the backside.
Following that I use the Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer (which probably deserves a post of its own) that has an SPF 30. I love this stuff, and honestly think it made my skin smoother, and less blotchy from the first application. At night time I’ve been loving the Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion, which promises to fight the signs of aging, encouraging the skin’s renewal process, with a pure and potent mix of retinol and vitamins C & E. A wonderful beauty treat!
Body: Naturally I’m still obsessed with the Victoria Secret body products – you just can’t beat their 6 products for $35 offer! Christmas left me with a multitude of Victoria Secret goodies to choose from, but my current beauty favorite is the Secret Charm Body Butter. The thick, luxurious, Shea and Jojoba butter cream is perfect for sad, dry, winter skin, and it smells of honeysuckle and jasmine. Divine.
Make-up: In the effort to achieve (the appearance of) flawless skin, I’ve been applying the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. This is an incredible budget beauty buy, and will leave your skin looking luminous, hydrated, and flawless for hours.
Hair: My current love in the hair department is the 12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair treatment spray. Like it says on my ever so cute and dinky bottle; it seals color, smooths, repairs, moisturizers, adds shine, prevents damage, improves texture and manageability… and a lot more! It’s the perfect size for traveling, and really makes a difference to my frizzy, dry, unruly locks. I’m down to the last few spritzes which means I’m going to have to fork out for the full size. Totally worth it though.
