During the winter, I’m definitely more invested in my skincare routine. This winter has been no exception to the rule, particularly knowing that I’m getting married in the summer. In fact I’ve even invested in some new items in the hope of achieving clear radiant skin, not only on my big day but hopefully all year round too. And they all happen to be rose scented.
Liz Earle’s famous Cleanse & Polish certainly isn’t a new product to me by all means – its been the only cleanser I’ve used for the past two plus years. The Rose & Lavender edition however I am not so familiar with. Once limited edition this is now a permanent member of the Liz Earle family. Somehow the Rose & Lavender is a little more luxurious than its original peer. The texture is unmistakably the same with a subtle twitst of lightly fragranced rose and lavender essence which certainly make for a more superior skincare treat.
The sort of cleanser you would reach for on a Sunday morning or as a reward after a long day. The soft rose petals and calming lavender are so soothing. Its creamy texture is extremely gentle on the skin and leaves you feeling fresh and revitalized. My skin can be sensitive particularly to fragranced products but this is so mild that I haven’t experienced any irritation at all.
A new product on the skincare scene all together this Rose Tonic by Pixi is a delightful toner designed to re-balance skin. The Rose Tonic has a faint scent of rose but nothing overpowering and does not aggravate my face. My skin feels rehydrated after using this toner whereas some toners leave my skin feeling tight and stripped. The troublesome red areas around my nose and across my cheeks seem calmer and look less prominent after using this. Since using this intermittently with the Pixi Glow Tonic the texture of my skin has definitely been so much smoother and blemishes seem to be kept well at bay. I feel confident bare faced and I have not been able to say that for years! Plus I have noticed my makeup application has been far superior as a result so I will 100% be keeping up with including the rose tonic in my daily ritual.
A multi use product, I however have only tried the Pixi Rose Flash Balm as a treatment mask to revitalize and boost the radiance in my skin. Especially at the moment in the harsh winter conditions my skin can look dull and flat. A few applications of this several times a week brings everything back to life and restores a youthful glow. The balmy texture feels slick but is actually oil free – I leave a generous layer on for five minutes and love the results. Baby soft to touch with an almost dewy looking complexion. As I mentioned this is multi use, and is said to be a primer however I personally don’t know how I would feel about that because of how slippery this feels I don’t think it would sit well under makeup without sliding about.
What skincare have you been loving this winter?
