Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Balm Origins Overnight Body Shop BB Cream Superdrug mask

Hi everyone, hope you’ve had a really good year and made lots of memories, as we are welcoming a new year I thought that I should post about a few skin care items that have relieved dull and dry skin. People who know me will know that I suffer from very dry skin and often I will complain of dull skin. Over the year I have collected these skin care items and they have really helped my skin in any circumstance.

Superdrug Purifying Mask £2.59, sadly they don’t have this on there website but I am sure they are still in store because they are amazing! It contains witch hazel and salicylic acid which are both ingredients that help clear up skin from those pesky spots. I like to use this twice or three times a week, due to it being non drying and really purifying my skin ensuring that when I do decide to wear make-up it goes on better. I have tried many different face mask including the infamous Glam Glow but honestly I do think that this is much better in comparison, better for my purse and more in the bottle as well as doing the same job.

Once I have used the Superdrug Mask, I like to apply Origins Overnight Mask £23.00, this smells amazing! It works really well to hydrate the face and restore my skin to supple and smooth. Now I didn’t know this but it actually has Japanese Seaweed in it which acts to repair skin’s barrier to prevent future dehydration and signs of premature ageing.  It also contains lots of fruit extracts which is the reason why it makes skin look more bright and I do really love this mask. This is especially good for winter days when you have flaky skin that will not sort itself out.

For my lips I do like to use the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Balm £9.99, its great for really dry/chapped lips just apply it morning and night and it will ensure your lips are smooth by the morning. Although higher than a normal lip treatment, it is a multi task product, it heals skin conditions such as spots, dry skin, dull skin. if you have closed wounds that need a bit of attention just apply some to it and it will provide relief and repair your skin. There is so many ways you can use this multi task product and I love it.

Finally if you do decide you need a bit of make-up I would recommend The Body Shop BB Cream £12., its a BB cream so overtime it will help your skin from any blemishes but it is pretty light weight and it just works to make your skin look healthy. Bearing in mind that this doesn’t provide any coverage, however its great if you want something as a base.  I do have a few tutorials using this bb cream, so I shall link them here.
