MY TOP 5 ITEMS FOR GREAT SKINCARE ROUTINE THIS WINTER

With the arrival of winter it can suggest a few changes to our daily routines, that includes skincare apart from our wardrobe edit of course and here’s what you can do about it.

I often find that as our skin can be affected by the elements and fatigue we can take steps to improve its appearance with just making a few changes to our essential daily grooming.

There are some really great products to keep your skin refreshed, recharged and feeling great during the party season by prepping beforehand with my essential grooming hacks day to day.

I find it helps to start your morning routine with a refreshing face wash to give your skin that energising boost to beat fatigue with Clarins Paris One-Step-Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser that contains orange extracts is suitable for all skins types including sensitive skin too.

One particular area of the face that I love to mention is how best we improve the appearance of fatigue in the eye area which needs to be kept firm and looking youthful starts with hydration to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and dark circles by using eye cream treatments. I’ve chosen Kiehls Eye Alert as it contains cucumber and vitamin E is ideal to reduce puffiness and give your eyes a refreshed energy boost any time of day and is on me the whole time from first thing early morning to when getting home before bed.

For when you arrive home just top up with eye gel patches and leave it to work it’s magic to hydrate, soften and calm the affected area which has cucumber extract and collagen for skin cell renewal. Just remember a good night’s rest is essential for skin renewal so we could all do with some beauty sleep from time to time.
Most recently as the days and nights get cooler the climate can make our skin feel dry at times so be sure to wrap up warm and have products at hand to use when necessary on the go.

In this instance, I like to carry a lip balm with me to prevent my lips from getting dry and chapped so they appear smooth. Some products by Sister & Co Skin Food you may find even come with sumptuous flavours such as wild mint, raw coconut, Lip tonic and Lemon Myrtle that gives a tingling sensation when applied to the lips.

With that said our hands too could do with some tender loving care with the exception of a body cream to stop them getting dry. It’s best just to apply some to hands before putting your winter warmers on. There’s a great body cream from Jo Malone London I’ve been trying out recently with an aromatic scent of mandarin and lime basil that’s uplifting and sensual even in the bleak midwinter it feels festive as it takes me back to my childhood of decorated mandarins with cloves and ribbons as presents.

Let these amazing products work their magic by improving your daily skincare routine with additional items to refresh your grooming kit this winter.

THE ALLURING SCENT OF JO MALONE COLOGNE YOU’LL BOTH WANT TO SHARE

A GENDER NEUTRAL FRAGRANCE THAT YOU’LL BOTH ADORE TOGETHER

The other day I took my first visit to my local Jo Malone store during a casual stroll in town as you do to seek the perfect gift for some inspiration.  I was astonished to find here a selection for Men’s Grooming, Women’s Beauty to Gender Neutral Products namely fragrances which I was very tempted to try out while inside the store.

I’ve always heard great things about The Jo Malone Brand as it’s very quintessentially British and one of my favourite luxury products as an alternative to designer fragrances.  We all have our favourite signature fragrances when it comes to scents that feel almost personal to us when we wear them on our skin.

I could spend all afternoon here trying on every invigorating scent that captivates my interest till I find the one for me or someone else as a gift, because we all like to indulge and be spoiled from time to time.

So, if you’re not all familiar with Jo Malone London let me give you a little bit of background into this iconic British Brand and what makes it so unique.

Jo Malone is a British perfume and scented candle brand founded in 1983. Since 1999 it has been owned by Cosmetics giant Estee Lauder. This luxury brand is synonymous for its high end perfumes. Luxury candles, bath products and room scents.

An interesting fact about the brand is that they appointed English Model and Musician Karen Elson and Model and Actress Poppy Delevingne who have served as spokesperson for the brand.

The fragrance I decided to choose this time round had to be the Honeysuckle & Davana Cologne from the Jo Malone Fragrances which is sweet , not too overpowering and just right with its fresh scented aroma’s can also be Unisex. It’s very versatile and feel I can wear this cologne day in, day out as it’s very alluring when people have commented on the scent’s smell  the first time I wore it.

Incase, you’re wondering to know what’s the main ingredients’ of the fragrance are; it evokes the wildness of honeysuckle, fresh tone of rose together with the aromatic fruity twist of davana and woody with Moss warmed by sunshine which I was instantly obsessed with.

For me, it had to be the hints of liquorice that’s very suttle in sweetness brings to life a fragrance that’s light and ideal for daytime or evening.

Which reminds me that I need to try next the Huntsman  x Jo Malone range which is on my wish list just in time for Christmas.

 

This product retails at £ 47.00 30 ml and £ 94.00 100 ml. To find out more about Jo Malone London visit them online or at their Stores in the UK.
