Skincare Update

A month ago, I decided it was time to invest in some new skincare products. I placed a feelunique order where I picked up two minis from Antipodes these were the Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream and the Divine Face Oil.  I like both of these products, especially the day cream. I like a morning cream to have quite a think consistency and this has that. It has a lovely fresh scent, which is exactly what you want first thing in the morning. You have to give it a good blend, in order for it to be fully absorbed into the skin. Less is definitely more when it comes to this, which is great with a product of this price. It feels really hydrating and gives, the skin an overall boost. I have never used oils before, so was a bit anxious about using this. However, I am slowly getting round to liking it. It definitely takes some getting use to. But this isn't too overpowering or thick on the skin which I really like. It definitely adds moisture, and hydration into the skin, which is exactly what I need before I apply my makeup. These work really well combined together one after the other, and this has become my morning routine after cleansing.

For my night time routine, I have introduced the Antipodes Joyous Protein Rich Night Serum. I really, really wanted to love this, but I can't. I thought this would be perfect for my dry skin, but I simply do not like anything about it. My most disliked factor of all for me is the scent of the serum. I thought it would smell delightful, as it contains blackcurrants and berries. However, to me the smell is really off putting, I can't put my finger on it's exact scent but it is not nice. It is very thick and it lingers on top of my skin, even when I have only used half a drop. It just does not seem to work well with my skin at all, which is hugely disappointed. On another note, the product which I have been most impressed with is The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Night Lotion. The texture is lightweight, soft, and silky, and sinks into the skin very easily. It is aimed for blemish prone skin, which is exactly what I need. I do not necessarily think that my skin has had a grand transformation since using this. However, my skin has not got any worse, and I think that with further use I will see more results. It does has a strong tea tree scent, and personally I don't find off it putting as it is refreshing and cooling.

Have you got any new skincare treats?
