Ultimate Skincare Pick Me Ups

Hi everyone! I hope that you all have had a great week! We've reached the odd time of year when winter is pretty much over (though I live in England so we can never be too sure!) but spring hasn't quite arrived. I find that this time of year is when my skin is a little unpredictable. I try to keep this at bay by only using the products which I'm sure will be able to control my skin and keep blemishes and dry skin away. Here are my ultimate skincare pick me ups...

Neal's Yard Power Berry Daily Moisture

I'm definately guilty of not using moisturiser as much as I should but whenever I feel that my skin is in need of a quick fix, I always apply this. This was the first ever Neal's Yard product I tried about six years ago and it still remains my favourite. The berries in the formula help bring out the skins natural glow and it applies really easily and sinks in quickly.

Rodial Stemcell Super-Food Lip Balm

This is by far the best lip balm I've ever used and not just because it smells like Turkish Delight! It's quite expensive compared to most other lip balms but for what it does, its 100% worth it. I use this every morning and evening along with a lip scrub and the results are instantaneous.

James Read Sleep Mask Tan

This is something which I've spoken about in a couple of blog posts before. I'm not really much of a fake tan user, mostly down to the fact that I just can't be bothered! But this is a great, natural looking glow that you apply just before you go to sleep and wake up looking healthy and rested. Also, if that wasn't enough, the tan is clear coloured when you squeeze it from the tube, it doesn't stain and it doesn't smell. Awesome :)

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter

This is my all time favourite body butter and I keep the full sized pump version next to my bed. Above is the travel sized pot which I carry around with me. It smells absolutely amazing and sinks in really quickly without leaving any greasy feeling behind. The formula is made for very dry skin so I would really recommend this to anybody wanting to sort out any stubborn or problematic skin from winter.

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

Again something which I've spoken about extensively but it's so good I can't help it! I last featured this in my battle of the primers blog post (Check it out here) where it came second. Not only can this product work as a primer but it also deals with dry skin, brightens the complexion and tightens facial contours. Whenever I use it, alone or under foundation, I notice an immediate result on my skin.
