Australian Bodycare Tea Tree Skin Wash

After years of using harsh face scrubs and washes in an attempt to have clear skin, I have finally found a product which helps clear up imperfections, whilst soothing the skin.

Australian Bodycare is a brand which specialises in Tea Tree Oil products, the magic ingredient in solving any skin problems. The brand offer a huge range of products, including oils, lotions, skincare and hair products.

I decided to try out their skin wash as it was described as a daily antiseptic wash to help prevent against spot causing bacteria.

The one issue I was concerned about before using this product, was that it might leave my skin looking dull and dried out. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

As the skin wash has a neutral pH balance, it doesn’t harm sensitive skin and it did not dry out my skin at all. I have been using this skin wash every day for the past few weeks and it has left my skin feeling squeaky clean.

For somebody who has very problematic skin, I was impressed to see that my blemishes had cleared up and I have definitely seen a reduction in break outs. 

I love using this skin wash in the mornings as it leaves my skin feeling super fresh.

If you have sensitive or problematic skin, then I would definitely recommend you give this skin wash a try!

ARK Skincare Primer Review – Sample Giveaway

I was recently lucky enough to meet with a few fabulous ladies working at ARK Skincare and I was really interested in the products they had to offer.

ARK Skincare is an Age Aware brand which stocks many different products which help reduce the signs of aging by protecting, defending and defying the skin. As I turned twenty one this year I decided that I would take anti-aging more seriously when it comes to my skincare routine, which made this brand very appealing to me.

I was able to try out some of the face creams which left my skin feeling silky smooth in seconds. If you’re looking for a new face cream to try out I would definitely recommend this brand.

As I tend to wear makeup almost every day I decided to take home one of their primers to try out. I can honestly say that this is one of the best primers I have used. After applying my usual face cream, I applied a small amount of this primer on my face and neck and proceeded to apply my makeup as usual.

I was pleased to find that my makeup glided on smoothly and that it also stayed in place for the whole day – this product did everything you would want in a primer. What made me love this product even more is the fact that it is anti-aging. Obviously I can’t review the effectiveness of the anti-aging after only using the product for a few days but it will be interesting to see how my skin reacts to this product.

I was lucky enough to receive a couple of small sachets of the primer and I would love to give these away to anybody willing to try out this wonderful primer.

I only have a few spare but if you would be interesting in receiving one feel free to drop me and email and let me know your address so that I can get these posted to you. I hope you enjoy using this product as much as I do!

My Top Five Skincare Products

5skin

I have decided to pick my top five skincare products and explain to you guys why I love them. I am such a hoarder when it comes to skincare products, but these are five products I swear by.

The first item I chose is not really a skincare product as such, but my Magnitone Barefaced! Daily Face Brush is one of the best things I have ever used!
The item itself is £70, which may seem a little pricey, but you should definitely think of it as an investment. This may sound exaggerated, but after just one use of this brush, my skin felt silky smooth. After a few weeks of using this my blemishes have decreased significantly and I don’t think I could ever live without it.

The best part about this product is that it’s so easy to use! I use mine everyday in the shower and it has a timer which tells you when it’s time to move on to the next section of your face. It’s so easy you could clean your face in under a minute.

The second product I chose is my Kleem Organics Vitamin C Serum. My first attraction to this product was definitely the citrus scent it has. I personally love the scent and having my skin constantly smell this way is a dream. I use this product everyday before applying my moisturiser and the fact that you can instantly feel your skin tightening is amazing. My pores have definitely reduced a lot since using it.

The main reason why I love this product is the fact that it protects your skin from issues such as environmental pollution. As I live in a busy city, this is definitely very important to me. Again this is definitely a product worth investing in.

The next product I have chosen is Mask of Magnamity face and body mask by Lush. I have tried way too many face masks and I am so happy to have finally found one I can stick with. I use this mask on my face at least one a week and it is perfect for a pamper night.

Once it starts to dry, this mask leaves an amazing tingly feeling on your skin which is one of the main reasons why I love using it. My skin is quite sensitive to harsh products, but every product I have tried from Lush agrees with me which is perfect. If you’re looking for a product to help sort out problematic skin, I would definitely recommend you try this product.

The fourth product I chose is the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur PrimerI have expressed my love for this primer before and you can read why I adore it so much here. If you’re looking to try out a new Primer I would definitely give this one a shot.

The last product I chose is an all time favourite. The Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion is a self-tanner which I always seem to go back to. If you’re looking for a natural glow to your skin, this lotion is definitely what you need. The price of this is very reasonable and I always find it on offer at my local drugstore or supermarket.

Unlike many other self-tan lotions I have used, this product dries pretty quickly so you don’t have to stand around for ages waiting for it to set. It also leaves your skin feeling silky smooth which is an added bonus!
Dove is a brand I can always rely on and I feel like I will continue to use this product forever!
