In need of a skincare boost after the festive period? Then look no further than my tried and tested guide to the top eight game-changing beauty buys to reboot your skincare routine. Including superfood skincare, charcoal-based bodycare and then, of course, products packed with marine extracts and vitamins to get your skin back on track.
The Sanctuary Spa Purifying Charcoal shower burst, £7
Kick start your day with a foam-themed shower thanks to the Sanctuary Spa’s purifying menthol and charcoal infused body cleanser. I have to admit I was a little cautious about using this first because of the charcoal residue over my white tiles, but the black gel magically transforms into white.
ESPA Fitness body oil, £30 at Beauty Expert
Massage this highly addictive warming body oil into your skin pre or post-workout to relieve aching muscles.
Elemental Herbology Facial Detox, £29 at Space NK
A potent blend of detoxifying Amazonian clay, Manuka honey, aloe and Calendula that fight breakouts fast – if you suffer from frequent breakouts like me then I urge you to give this a go.
Omorovicza Refining facial polisher, £65
Omorovicza is my go-to brand for intelligent skincare. The brand’s much-loved (especially by me) refining facial polisher is made up of calcium and Hungarian Moor mud to purify and cleanse, while resurfacing thanks to white natural pumice.
Tropic Super Greens nutrient boost serum, £42
A vitamin-infused serum that delivers a shot of goodness to your skin. A lightweight formula that reduces redness, repairs, protects and fights the ageing process – think of this as a healthy green juice boost for your skin.
Sarah Chapman Skinesis overnight facial, £49 at Beauty Expert
Sarah Chapman knows a thing or two about skin, being one of London’s most sought-after celebrity facialist. Combat the signs of ageing with her renowned overnight facial serum-oil and awaken to instant results of a plumper, smoother and more radiant complexion.
Sond Sidekick day cream, £34
When it comes to choosing a day cream, opt for Sond’s Sidekick which protects you from the harmful effects of London pollution, soothes and hydrates.
Omorovicza Deep cleansing mask, £60
A non-drying, spot-fighting face mask? Check. Its easy to see why this mask has such a cult following, the smell alone transports me to a fancy spa. I use this at least once a week on my hormonal, congested skin and can honestly say I’ve noticed a huge difference in the lack of spots and pore size since using.
