SARA'S TOP SKINCARE PRODUCTS IN MAY - FOR DRY AND SENSITIVE SKIN
MY CURRENT TOP SKINCARE GO-TO’S FOR DRY AND SENSITIVE SKIN
Please note that all of these products have been gifted to us. We have used all of them for a long time, and have included the products in this post because we genuinely like them and can therefore recommend them.
NOURISH YOUR SKIN AND TREAT IT WELL
COMPLETE NIGHT REPAIR FACIAL OIL
This facial oil by GORGIAS LONDON is a product that I discovered only a few weeks ago, and I have been hooked on it ever since. I struggle with having very dry skin, as well as my skin being quite sensitive to a lot of products - but this oil is the perfect fit for me. It is 100% natural, and therefore free of strong perfumes and other chemicals that might irritate the skin. It contains omega 6 & 9 to help repair dry & damaged skin, as well as grapeseed oil which helps to rejuvenate the skin.
Although it is an oil, it is very light and does not make the skin feel greasy. It is a product that you apply to clean skin before going to sleep, so it will fully absorb into your skin during the night.
It has a nice herbal smell which I also like a lot :)
Argan Oil - controls skin’s oil production
Macadamia Oil - fights wrinkles
Grape Seed Oil - locks in moisture
RADIANCE RENEWAL MASK
This is an exfoliating mask to help remove dead skin cells from your skin. I have recently been using this once a week and can really feel and see a difference in my skin. I was originally a bit worried that it would be too harsh for my sensitive skin, as it contains Glycolic and Lactic acid. Luckily there was no need to worry as it is very gentle to the skin :) In general, REN is known for using natural clean ingredients that are kind to the skin.
The recommended time for leaving this mask on is 10 minutes and I would highly advise you to stick to this. I even sometimes use it for a shorter time, more like 8 minutes.
It gives you a bit of a tingle, but in my case, that has not been an issue at all as my face has not looked nor felt irritated after removing the mask.
Glycolic Acid from Pineapple Extract - gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells
Lactic Acid from Passion Fruit - smoothes and refines skin texture
Papain from Papaya - helps to further remove dead skin cells and rejuvenate overall skin texture and radiance
MAGNESIUM BODY BUTTER
I love the fact that a body lotion can give you more benefits than just applying moisture to the skin. Not only does this body butter leave your skin feeling nice and smooth, but it is also 100% natural and supercharged with magnesium. Apparently, magnesium is vital for your health and wellbeing.
The product also contains 24 calming essential oils to help you de-stress, ease anxiety, reduce muscle tension, relax and feel calmer.
Now, that's a lot of benefits packed into one body lotion!
Essential oils such as; lavender, jasmine & Brazilian rosewood
The Egyptian Magic cream is an all-natural skin cream made from six of nature's most powerful moisturising and healing ingredients.
It feels more like a balm than a cream, but you can use it all over your face. It is great for people like me who struggles with dry skin. I tend to apply it after the night repair face oil, and leave it on overnight. It is maybe a tad too thick to be used as a day cream, but on days where I’m not really going anywhere, I will leave my face makeup free and apply this balm in the morning. Then I just leave my skin to feel amazing and nourished for the rest of the day :)
The balm can also be used on your lips, and on other dry spots on your body.
HAND MADE OF 100% PURE NATURAL INGREDIENTS:
PURIFYING DETOX CLAY MASK
I have always been staying away from clay masks in the past, as they are generally best suited to people with oily skin, and I have always found them to dry out my skin even more. However, this pink clay mask from Emma Hardie is the first one that also suits a more normal to dry skin type. It feels a lot lighter than other clay masks still, I only apply it on the T-Zone and my chin, as this is where I am the most prone to getting clogged up skin and outbreaks.
The mask deep cleanses, purifies and balances the skin. It refines the pores and gently exfoliates, as well as improving the moisture levels in the skin. Defensil™ 2% technology is used at a clinical level to instantly reduce redness, inflammation and to create an even complexion.
Australian Pink Clay - deeply cleanses and balances the skin, refines the pores, exfoliate and to removes impurities from the skin
Moringa Seed Oil - rich in Vitamin C and E and provides antioxidant and environmental protection
