Lotions and Potions


The months of October and November has seen the purchase and trial of one or two new skin care items... It all started when my skin decided to play silly buggers. It was tender and sore and when I moisturised my face felt like it was burning!! Cue a trip to Boots to buy a few moisturisers and face masks that would hopefully soothe and nourish my skin back to normality. Talk about Winter hating my face.

The first product to say all the right things, at the right price, was the Eucerin AtoControl Face Care Cream. For daily care, this cream promises to smooth rough and irritated skin and help to relieve itching. To be honest this is my favourite product of everything I have bought in the past month or so. It is fabulous. Soothing, hydrating... does everything it says on the tin and is nearly finished. Because I love this so much i'll definitely do a more in-depth review of this on this own.

Next up is the Avene antirougeurs Calm. A soothing repair mask and was everything I needed: Indications being: redness, discomfort, pulling, heat sensations, irritation flare ups.. tick, tick, tick , tick ... TICK!! This is a lush product which I haven't really needed to use that often as the Eucerin seems to be keeping all those skin nasties at bay. I recommend this.

On that shopping trip I also finally caved into the Hydraluron moisture Booster by Indeed Laboratories. I have to say that I am obsessed with this. I use it religiousy, every morning and every night and I think is helping my skin keep hydrated and plumped. We can't know these things for sure as I started using the Eucerin and other things at the same time, but I think I really like it. It is a watery gel that feels quite sticky on the skin. But once I apply my moisturiser my skin feels soft and looks lush.

I got a few REN freebies with Style magazine last month and glad i did. Included was Evercalm Global Protection Day cream. This promises to Hydrate and replenish skin to make it feel calmed and soothed and protects against free radicals and environmental aggression HAHA. Now thats a blurb that gets a moisturiser sold. It is a lightweight white cream that melts into the skin and is less intense than the Eucerin so is perfect for the day.My sample is now empty. Must go to Marks and Spencers soon to replenish.

I ran out of my Sanctuary spray toner and decided to pick up the Evene Eau Thermale. I have to say the spray aspect to my skin care regime is my favourite and this does the job grandly at imparting that little bit more hydration. The mists is super fine so i just go crazy with it. My boyfriend is disgusted that I bought canned spring water but he just doesn't understand... boys!!

And last on the list the ever intriguing Super Facialist By Una Brennan. Vitamin C+ skin renew cleansing oil. I've passed it many times in Boots and have finally been succumbed into purchasing. It smells of artificial oranges and the bottle directs that you use this first in a 2-step cleansing routine. So get another cleanser handy. It feels very moisturising on the skin and leaves it super clean and fresh. So I'm happy.

All in all a very successful bunch of skin care goodies. A few loves have been found and I am very happy. What is your favourite skin care find this year? xoxo
