Hey hey folks! Today is May 5th and it is officially MY 26th BIRTHDAY *woop!* and so I thought I would celebrate that by talking about my all time FAVOURITE skincare brands that have helped me stay looking young and fresh and amazing (lmao!).
The brands have also been very kind and have collaborated to me to bring you an amazing giveaway featuring my favourite products; great right?! Now without further ado, let’s talk.
Balance Me is a brand that I have heralded for a long time. The company was formed in 2005 by sisters Clare and Rebecca Hopkins after they began making holistic products in their kitchen. Over the past 10 years, the company has grown into the natural skincare giant it is today and is loved by both celebs and bloggers/consumers alike. I’ve always found their ingredients to be of a high quality and I love their Super Moisturising range in particular; I have gone through several hand and body creams and the Extra Care Wonder eye cream (my 3rd tube) is the only cream that I use where I can see a visible difference under my eyes after use. The Radiance Face Oil (my 3rd bottle) is another excellent serum that hydrates parched skin and and helps to give my skin that extra glow. I love using this underneath my makeup!
If you’re a long time reader of my blog you may be aware that I have a bit of a love affair with this brand (see here, here, here and here!). My skin just seems to SOAK UP all of their products and when it comes to facial oils and serums, in my opinion I don’t think you can get any better. I am the hugest fan of the Divine Face Oil (my 6th bottle) and I can honestly say that this serum has changed my skin for the better over the past three years; my skin just feels supple and hydrated and also looks a lot clearer too, which is amazing. Along with this is the Juliet Skin Brightening Gel Cleanser which I use twice a day before the serum. The cleanser smells amazing and contains loads of yummy ingredients to help keep my skin clear.
I remember a few years ago when Bioderma was only available in France and it was the new, go-to cult product for bloggers. I tried as much as possible not to get into the ‘hype’. however I received a small sample within a beauty box a year and a half ago and since then, I have gone through 9 large bottles (thank you for Escentual for stocking Bioderma!). The Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution has been my go-to makeup remover ever since. I simply love it; it feels as if I’m washing my face with plain water while receiving the added benefit of having every last scrap of makeup being scraped off my face, sans stingy eyes! Love.
Now onto the exciting part: I have collaborated with Antipodes, Balance Me and Escentuals to bring you an awesome giveaway featuring my favourite products!!
