As much as I love all things beauty and experimenting with new products, I really do have a soft spot for all things skincare related.
One of the most incredible privileges of being a blogger is that we occasionally get the chance to try out new products from various brands and I cannot begin to tell you how extremely grateful I am for those opportunities.
Today’s post is all about the new products currently on trial in my collection.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been trying out the Green People Organic Young* skincare range and I am absolutely in love with the products that I received.
I’m pretty picky when it comes to things like face scrubs and face washes as I have quite sensitive skin and I’m always slightly apprehensive to try anything new out. However, the foaming face wash by Oy! leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean and fresh. The foam is soft and gentle and lathers up nicely on my skin, creating a lovely texture that is easily absorbed into my pores. The ingredients of tea tree and willow bark help to promote healthy looking skin and help to eradicate any spots or blemishes. While I’m not the biggest fan of the scent, (it’s actually my least favourite out of all three products I received) it does smell incredibly fresh and clean. I love the fact that it’s suitable for all skin types and that it helps to fight acne-prone skin.
While I’m pretty apprehensive when it comes to trying new face washes, I’m always incredibly excited to try out new moisturisers as they’re one of my favourite parts of my skincare routine. This cleansing moisturiser by Oy! is a light and purifying moisturiser that promotes a spot-free complexion as well as being deeply moisturising. I love using this as a daily moisturiser as it’s non-greasy and not too heavy at all, meaning that it’s ideal for using underneath your makeup. The ingredients of organic rosehip, green tea and mandarin provide this moisturiser with an incredibly fresh scent and I just know it’s going to be my go-to moisturiser when the warmer months roll round.
The purifying serum is actually my favourite product from the Oy! range. Not only does it smell incredible – hello, aloe vera, rosehip and chamomile – but it done actual wonders for my skin. The black willow bark and tea tree ingredients help to reduce redness and control bacteria, while the rosehip oil encourages a clearer complexion.
Origins have been one of my favourite skincare brands for a number of years now and in the last few months, I’ve been lucky enough to attend a number of events at my local Origins store in York. At the most recent event, I picked up some of the products from their Make A Difference range and I’m absolutely obsessed. My mum actually bought me this set as a ‘get well soon’ present after having my tonsils out and I couldn’t be more grateful. I’ve been loving trialling every single product out over the last few weeks.
Recently, I’ve been absolutely loving using a serum as part of my skincare routine and my choice of serum at the moment is the Make A Difference one by Origins. I only got the sample size as part of my giftset but I already know that it’s going to last me a long time – Origins serums always do – and I’m so happy to have it as part of my collection. This serum helps to smooth out any fine lines and leaves my skin looking and feeling incredibly youthful and dewy. A little drop of this really does go a long way and I love using this as part of my skincare routine.
It’s incredibly lightweight and the oil-free formula feels so luxurious on my skin. Despite being oil-free, this serum works amazingly well at keeping my skin hydrated and clears up any dry or dehydrated patches almost instantly. The delicious scent of this collection of watermelon and lychee really radiates through with this treatment and I adore how soft and supple it leaves my skin.
This glorious cleansing milk feels absolutely lush on my skin. It instantly melts away my makeup, removes any dirt and cleanses any impurities. My skin is left feeling radiant, clean and totally replenished. It’s not harsh in anyway and it feels so smooth as it glides across my skin.
I’ve also become a huge fan of various lotions and potions over the past few months and I’m absolutely loving this latest addition to my skincare collection. This treatment lotion is packed full of wonderful ingredients such as rose of Jericho, lychee and watermelon, allowing my skin to be fully prepped before I begin the rest of my skincare routine. It helps to clear away any impurities and is so soft and gentle on my skin. It’s in no way drying, and instead leaves my face feeling supple and hydrated.
With regards to my haircare, I’ve also been changing things up recently with the help of Monat*. I was fortunate enough to receive a few samples of their renew shampoo and replenish masque and I can totally vouch for their amazing help with my hair!
The Monat Renew Shampoo thoroughly cleanses my hair, leaving it feeling totally nourished and clean. It’s incredibly moisturising and I really love just how hydrating it is for my hair. I’d definitely recommend this shampoo if you want squeaky clean hair that also smells lovely!
The Replenish Masque feels incredibly luxurious when applying it to my hair and it’s a hair mask that you really only need to use a little bit at a time. It helps to replenish and rejuvenate my lacklustre hair, giving it more ‘life’ and ensuring it looks healthier than ever.
