New Skin Care Additions // Tried and Tested


The past month I've added a few new additions to my skin care family, so I thought I'd share them with you and how I got on with them!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream // £13

I absolutely love The Body Shop Vitamin E night moisturiser so I wanted try the day version and with this cold weather sucking the life out of my skin I opted for the illuminating option. It has light reflecting partials to help skin glow as well as essential hydrating ingredients. I looove this! I've been using this every morning without fail! This little pink pot is very hydrating without being too heavy for a day cream and leaves my skin silky smooth! Makeup also applied beautifully over the top. When applied this really does give a subtle glow to the skin, so this would be great for those no makeup days!

Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask // £9.99 (Currently on offer for £4.97)

I picked this for it's moisturising properties. This mask is aimed at lifting the face and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It contains bee venom to help plump and firm the skin, propolis extract which is a powerful anti oxidant to help heal the skin, and many other skin loving ingredients to help soften and moisturise. It can be used as a mask for 1 minute, an intense mask over night or as quick fix cleanser in the mornings! I used this as a 10 minute mask. And the results of from this were amazing and instant. It really did leave my very soft, smooth and hydrated. But, it broke me out! Which wasn't ideal so I probably wont be using this again!

Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Cream Deluxe // £19.99 (Currently on offer for £9.99)

I picked this up because it was on offer in conjunction with the mask. This cream claims to act as a second skin shield to prevent aging and offer intense hydration. This contains Hyaluronic acid to increase the amount of moister the skin can hold, shea butter to help soften and sooth and many other anti aging properties. This is a very rich cream which is a dream to apply. Its a bit to rich for me to use as a day moisturiser but boy this works wonders over night! This really left my skin smooth, soft, glowing and hydrated! I cant say if this has worked on reducing wrinkles, because I'm fortunate not to have any yet, but I'm hoping this well prevent them!

Have you tried any these? Have added any new additions to your skin care routine?

Until next time...
