Recently, I have been neglecting myself and my skin. With my job, I am often in such a rush to get out of the door on time, I merely cleanse, tone, and if I have some spare time I use a bit of tinted moisturiser. Although it’s technically summer, it definitely feels like winter and with the cold and horrible wind, my skin is so not in the condition I would like it to be. My skin tends to get incredibly dry, so making sure it is hydrated is such a challenge.
Attending the fabulous #bloggerball event held by the lovely Scarlett, I stumbled across the fantastic, but new to me brand, Face Matters. The founder of the company, Sally, is a charming women who is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about her products. She has combined her experience and expertise in the beauty sector to create the amazing collection of 5 products.
At first glance, these products have very simple but effective packaging, in glass bottles and come with a handy leaflet, detailing the specific science behind how each of the products are designed to work; and how to use the products to gain the best effects.
On the website there is a breakdown of the trails and the reviews of each of the products, which is helpful, and the results gained from this research are pretty good!
So, all of the products that I tried smell divine! This is so important to me, as the scents are not overpowering, instead, are beautifully subtle.
I was kindly gifted the ALL DAY SPRITZ, which is a cleansing spray that can applied day or night, just whenever your skins needs an extra boost of hydration; preferably after cleansing and before moisturising. It is a great product and I think would be especially beneficial in both winter and summer when the weather tends to affect your skin more.
Next, I have been applying the MORNING MOISTURE after cleansing. Initially I stupidly put a bit too much on my face! You really only need a pea size amount and use it sparingly as a little goes a long way. The cream is quite thick which I love, and it’s also jam packed with goodness, vitamins, anti-oxidants and collagen which is essential for maintaining youthful skin.
Last but not least is the amazing and very luxurious BALM. There are a multitude of ways to use this product, as a cream, cleanser or mask. I opted for the latter and it makes my skin feel instantly more moisturised, supple and glowing. This is perfect for extreme weather conditions.
The above products are relatively pricey. However I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for, and the cost per wear of all these products will work out better in my opinion than getting cheaper products.
There are 2 other products, one of which, the EVENING ELIXIR is on my list of products to try as it’s loved by Hello! Magazine, but also, as the products I’ve tried so far are so good, I’m intrigued as to how the serum/facial oil will fair.
So from now on, I am hoping to set my alarm even earlier before work to ensure I stick to my new skincare routine!
I hope you have enjoyed this, let me know your skincare recommendations in the comments below!
