Clear, glowing skin is something we all crave. I’ve noticed that as I’ve got older, my skin has started to lack the natural radiance it once had. To put some luminosity back into my skin, I’ve incorporated a couple of products into my skincare routine. Skincare is something I’m very much enjoying at the moment – just taking a few minutes out of my routine to have a mini pamper is definitely something I can get on board with. One of my favourite masks is the Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. If your complexion needs a pick me up, this is the product for you. Formulated with four AHA’s, including glycolic acid which is great for eliminating dead skin cells to brighten and revitalise the skin. It also helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and reduce the appearance of scarring. I use this mask once a week and I love how my skin feels after use – it’s soft, smooth and plump. It’s not recommended for sensitive skin types. My skin can be prone to break outs after using certain products but I’ve never had a problem with this mask and it’s one I’ll keep repurchasing!


The Omorovicza Refining Facial Polisher is a new product in my skincare drawer. I’m not a massive fan of scrub type formulations but this is one I can make an exception for. Containing calcium and magnesium, as well as fruit extracts, this facial polisher features natural pumice to gently exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells, improve your skin tone and brighten. I’ve only used this a few times, but so far I’m finding it works a treat. Again, I only use this once per week instead of my regular cleanser. After use, my skin feels clean, refreshed and radiant. This retails for £65 for 100ml but I got my smaller tube via Latest in Beauty – I highly recommend trying out beauty boxes like this if you want to sample an expensive product before splashing out.

The DR Jart+ Ceramidin Cream* is a lifesaver for dull or uneven skin tones. A few months ago, I had a weird breakout of small flesh coloured bumps on one side of my face – I still have no idea what it was, but I applied this cream morning and night for three days and it disappeared. Since then, I’ve been using a little of this highly nourishing cream on any dry patches or irritated skin. Now, Ceramidin Cream is expensive (mine is a press sample from ages ago) but so worth it. I’ll definitely be purchasing this cream myself as the results are amazing. Your skin looks plump, smooth and glowing after use. If you don’t like creams, it also comes in a liquid and gel-cream formula.


The Natural Spa Factory Dusk to Dawn Night Oil* is also a newbie in my skincare collection. This night oil contains a variety of natural oils, including sweet almond oil to promote a youthful complexion, wheat germ oil to promote luminosity, rose hip seed oil to regenerate and mandarin peel oil to encourage cell renewal. I’m really impressed with this nourishing oil. Despite being blessed with very oily skin, the Dusk to Dawn Oil helps to balance my complexion, hydrate and add radiance. Unlike some other facial oils I’ve used, this one isn’t too rich for oily or combination skin types and it doesn’t feel really greasy either. I apply it in the evening, after using a serum and I’ve found it works really well in my skincare routine.
