Skincare Diaries; Month 1

I’ve vowed that this year I am going to crack on with getting my skin in tip top condition, and be a little bit less bias to the stuff I do use (mainly Pixi and Body Shop) and splash out on skincare in all shapes forms and sizes.

Now going into this I do have quite sensitive skin around my cheeks, nose areas and middle forehead. If the wrong products touch these areas I am left with burns and sore red irritated skin. So I am cautious however I am cracking on with it to see what else is out there because we won’t know unless we try will we?!

I will be doing monthly checkins of the products I use, if I’ve stuck to it, and if I’ve seen an improvement with what I’m using.

Natura Siberica Northern Soap for Deep Cleansing review

Recently I have been a bit more experimental in trying out different skincare lines and my skin has been very cooperative. My guess is that as I’ve gotten older it’s getting less reactive to products which is fantastic because it means now I can expand on my skincare collection!
I’ve not been lazy lately and I have been actually washing and toning my face every morning, instead of just using makeup wipes or a glycolic wipe/pad, my skin has loved me for not being lazy.

I’d heard about this product from a few ladies in M&S so when I had the opportunity to test out the “Amaretto smelling face wash” which was all natural I couldn’t say no. This is the Northern Soap Deep Facial Cleaning by a brand called Natura Siberica.

It’s all natural, no animal bi products included so it’s vegan friendly, and it smells amazing.

This is a deep cleanser with activated charcoal that you wipe on with the sponge (which is conveniently included), and wash off. It’s recommended you do this twice a week, inbetween your usual cleansing routine. Read on to see how I got on with this product!

Price: £11.99
Time Tested: 4 weeks
Cruelty free: Yes
Vegan: Yes

Weleda Skin Food Review

I was kindly sent a pack from Weleda to try their Skin Food, which is an all purpose cream for dry skin. I’ve known of Weleda products for a while but never had an opportunity to try their products.

Loved amongst celebrities such as Adele, Rihanna, Alexa Chung and Victoria Beckham, I was keen to get on board the Skin Food train to see if it could help with my dry elbows and knees.

What interested me about trying this was the fact the ingredients are all natural, and I am partial to a bit of lavender. I’m also a bit obsessed with hand creams and body creams and my skin changes so often I felt like these would be good points to put the Skin Food to the test to.
