It is monthly favourites time! With July being very warm and sunny I wanted to let my skin breathe a bit which is why I focused on skincare. There is nothing more stunning than beautiful, healthy and glowing complexion, which is exactly what I was aiming for this month. I think it worked :), check my Instagram (Aniaaa Pawlak) for proof.
Elemental Herbology Cell Food
This is a product that I would recommend to anyone who wants a hydrated and nourished skin. It contains 14 active ingredients, and 6 antioxidants which help to boost radiance and vitality. It is filled with vitamins, proteins and antioxidants which hydrate and revive your skin. The ingredients are 100% natural which is another plus, especially since I am trying to use more and more natural products.
I recommend using it once a day in the evening before your moisturiser, and twice a day if your skin needs a moisture boost. The serum is hydrating, and locks in the moisture, reducing the visibility of pores and results in glowing skin. Available from my Libbie Club
, £45 for Cell Food Radiance and Vitality Serum + FREE Vital Cleanse and FREE Vital Glow.
Exuviance Age Less Everyday
Dry skin has always been my problem so I need to apply a moisturiser twice a day. The Exuviance Age Less Everyday is a daily cream which has PHA + Biotonic complex which stimulates the cell turnover, preserving skin's natural collagen. The cream is targeted at dry and sensitive skin and not only nourishes but also slows down the ageing process.
The cream is filled with Lilac and Grape Seed Extracts, and Vitamin E to provide the skin with the most essential ingredients. I used this as a day cream for two weeks and I was very satisfied with the results. Although I am 22, so I do not have any visible signs of ageing, my skin was hydrated and glowing, and the cream was perfect as a makeup base. Available from Only Nature
Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex
Finding a good eye cream is very challenging so when I find one I usually stick to it. Lately, I have been using the Hydrating Eye Complex from Exuviance. The cream is ideal for all skin types, and has soothing, hydrating and anti-ageing properties. It contains Polyhdroxy Acids - Gluconalactone and Lactobionic acid as well as Vitamins A, C and E which have nourishing benefits.
I used this cream during my evening routine and I noticed that the skin around my eyes was brighter and healthier. Also my dark circles have faded noticeably. I recommend patting it softly when applying to stimulate circulation, slowing down the ageing process. It comes in a convenient tube which helps to dispense the cream and is very hygienic. Available from Only Nature £27.50.
Organique Ghassoul Clay Powder Mask
This is a mask from a brand from Poland but it is also available in the UK which is great news! The Ghassoul is a form of mud which has grease-removing and cleansing properties. It comes in a powder so you need to mix it with water before applying on face and neck. I recommend keeping it for 8-10 minutes before washing it off with water. The results are amazing, my skin was smooth, pores were tightened and my skin looked flawless. Available from Organique
James Read Gradual Tan Mist
Since I got this in the May Libbie Box I am obsessed. I usually use it once/twice a week to maintain a healthy tan on my face. It makes self-tan so much easier and it is very convenient. All you need to do is cleanse your skin, spray evenly on face and neck, and wait for 2 minutes to settle, then apply makeup.
It is infused with DHA, the active bronzing ingredient in self tanners. Against many expectations, it contains great ingredients like acne-fighting zinc, coconut oil, and hydrating rose water, leaving your skin hydrated, tanned and glowing.
Cle de Peau Beaute Essential Correcting Refiner
Last, but definitely not least is the Beauty Essential Correcting Refiner from Cle de Peau. This product is quite expensive compared to other alternatives. It contains Surface Refining Complex, oil-absorbing powder, illuminating Complex, chamomile extract and super hyaluronic acid.
It noticeably removes appearance of pores, evening out the skin tone. The hyaluronic acid has anti-ageing properties as well and replenishes the skin's moisture. I liked how the toner felt on my skin, closing the pores, preparing it for the moisturizer. It also reduces the appearance of T zone. Love love love. Available from Cle de Peau Beaute
