My September Skincare Favourites

Its true to say that My August Favourites just completely past me by.  I was determined this month for that not too happen, as I have so much to tell you about the new skincare items I have been using for the last 12 weeks. I always like to make sure that I give the products a good go to really test their metal as it were. First off the bat is my Facial cleanser, Soap and Glory Hot Cloth Cleanser. I mentioned this in My July Hit or Miss on Beauty and Skincare take a look.

 My next find literally made me feel sick as I handed my money over to the girl on the Charlotte Tilbury counter, for Charlotte's Magic Cream, it is admittedly a little pricey, but boy does it pack a punch! This jar of wonderfulness is so multitasking in its ingredients it makes us women who are renowned for our multitasking prowess into well ...A MAN. I have so far not come across a cream that really made me gasp when I read all it can do. So here we go, in this cream there is Bio-nymph peptide complex which fights for the skin on the anti ageing front. It stimulates collagen production and cell energy and fights free radicals, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smooth the skin. A hyaluronic acid booster called Sodium Hyaluronate which engulfs the skin with moisture,  an infusion of rose hip oil and vitamin E, now if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know anything that has Rose Hip in naturally gets my attention.

Charlotte Tilburys MAGIC CREAM has an SPF15 which if you are using the Nip+Fab Glycolic cleansing pads then you will need this. A mix of rose hip oil, camellia oil and anti-oxidant vitamin E which helps to transform the skin from a grey complexion into hydrated, mirror-shine skin, nourishing Vitamin A helps improves skin firmness and smoothness and energetic Vitamin C is able to promote collagen activity for more youthful skin.• Damask rose water and organic aloe vera benefit skin regeneration. I love in this part where Charlotte discribs  "Extracts of Frangipani, the symbol of eternity, form a soothing, purifying and hydrating comfort-blanket on the skin". This instantly makes me what to slather this all over my face to experience this "comfort blanket".

Next in line is my nightime cleanse or the first cleanse with Ponds Cold Cream, apparantly Kylie Minougue uses this and if its good enough for Kylie, well its good enough for me. I slather this over my made up face and work it into the skin. It slowly melts the make up and then I take a cotton pad drenched in a micellar water ( I will have a post up soon on the best Micellar water) and swipe over my face to remove the cream. I really like the cream it does the job of removing your makeup and also leaves your skin feeling soft and plump and for only £5.49 from Boots great little find.
I then swipe over my face the Nip+Fab Glycolic Daily Cleansing Pads. This is new to me all the Glycolic acid melarkly, but it does intriugue me to how it works. It works by giving you a gentle face peel. "PEEL" you say "im only swiping cotton wool pads over my face not striping it". I know, I said the same but I did my research and these are amazing things. It contains Glycolic Acid which is brilliant for the following it safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells bringing new skin to the surface. This is benefical for those who are looking for ingredients that help with anti-aging, Glycolic acid can help also help lighten discoloration of the skin, like sun spots or age spots and help those with acne prone and blackhead prone skin. It retextures and resurfaces to give your skin a brightening effect, Hyaluronic acid which moisturises and refreshes, and blue daisy which soothes and calms. My skin within a week looks brighter and my age spots on my cheek disappeared. My skin feels so smooth and I have less blackheads. The only downside if you are using Glycolic Acid you need to make sure you use SPF on your skin to protect it from the suns rays, as it can be vunerable.

I then smooth over The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Concentrate Serum. I had heard about this in the bloggersphere and it was on my list next to try when my No7 serum had finished. It a lovely serum smoothes,freshens,and feels more supple.I really like the packaging on this instead of a perpet it has like a button you press at the top to draw the serum up, just a little something different which i like. My final product that i put on before i finally get into bed is Drops Of Youth The Body Shop Bouncy Mask, sounds fun doesnt it? It is, check out my post on this in My July Hit or Miss on Beauty and Skincare to get the full load down.

So there you have it my current skincare favourites. Have you tried any of these? Can you recommend any of your favourites that you think i should try? I would love to hear from you.

Love Nay x
