Oliveda Cell Active Facial Ser
Oliveda Cell Active Facial Serum It's star ingredient is olive leaf cell elixir, a huge 70% of this product contains this gorgeous elixir. What is this elixir you ask? It's the cell sap of the olive tree leaves. Hydroxytyrosol for the olive tree is one of the strongest antioxidants in the world. The cell elixir is full of hydroxytyrosol, up to 3000 times higher than olive oil. As you can imagine, this is a very potent antioxidant, which helps fight against free radicals and environmental toxins. Some other ingredients that stand out to me are Aloe vera, Bisabolol and Honey. This powerful and highly concentrated serum they call the fountain of youth is said to firm and tighten skin, repair and regenerate stressed and dehydrated, moisturise and nourish, refines the pores, reduces pigment spots and balances wrinkles. My thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ It absolutely helps repair and hydrate and has been an absolute saviour in my recent skin flare up. It soothes, repairs, definitely plumps, because my skin is hydrated my pores appear smaller and it absorbs so quickly leaving my face with a glow. I've haven't tried a serum with cell active ingredients before so was super intriged to see what it does. It's definitely magic in a bottle and these amazing mountain olive trees provide the most beautiful exilir.

cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin
cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence.  this product is 96% snail mucin ๐ŸŒ. Snail mucin, it's the slimey little trail the snail leaves behind, and comes from your ordinary garden snail. No snails are harmed when it comes to collecting snail mucin, quite the opposite actually. In order for a snail to be able to produce optimum mucin, it must be well rested and feel comfortable and relaxed in its environment. How cosrx collect their mucin is, they'll be placed on a mesh net in a dark room (they're nocturnal) and are left alone to freely roam the mesh for 30 minutes, then are placed back in their home, the mesh is collected and hey presto! You've got yourself a mesh covered in mucin. The two weeks that I've been using this product, here are my visible results: -Plump and hydrated skin -Existing cystic pimples have dramatically reduced in size - Acne scars seem much less visible -No new breakouts ๐ŸŽ‰ The product is thick and slimey in its consistency, clear in appearance and has no noticeable smell. It applies and absorbs effectively and layers well. I use this straight after toning and have no problem layering other serums and moisturisers on top, they all absorb beautifully and no stickiness is left behind. Snail mucin contains ingredients like glycoproteins, hyaluronic acid, and glycolic acid. Benefits of using mucin: -Seals in moisture and helps skin heal -Rich in hyaluronic acid and antioxidants -Plumps the skin and smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles -Stimulates collagen production -Fades acne scars and dark spots -Improves skin's texture ๐ŸŒ For me, this has been my hero product and has seriously helped improve my problematic skin.

M u l t i v i t a m i n olivoderm Multivitamin Nourishing Face Mask This mask contains vitamins A, F, H, E and vitamin B complex. It also contains Hyaluronic acid, Olive oil, Panthenol, Argan oil, Aloe vera, Horse chestnut, Propolis, Calendula and Orange extract. Sounds dreamy doesn't it? In summary, it: Speeds cell turnover Reduces fine lines and wrinkles Helps fade hyperpigmentation and scars Full of essential fatty acids Protects skin barrier Locks moisture in Fights against sun damage Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory Improves skin elasticity Softens skin Deeply moisturises May reduce blemishes Packed full of antioxidants and essential fatty acids The list could literally go on forever! My experiences? My skin actually greatly benefits from this mask, it definitely softens the skin and it feels really soothing. It applies essentially like a moisturiser and has a cream texture, it's not an overly thick cream nor thin, it's somewhere perfectly in the middle. You leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off, it's feels super hydrating and nourishing I almost want to keep it on forever. It doesn't break me out which is great (as you all know I'm very acne prone at the moment) it actually feels very gentle and calming for my breakouts. All in all, this is up there with my favourite few masks. I don't mask often, maybe like once a month, but I've made an exception to this one and use it twice a week.

Absolutely in love with these
Absolutely in love with these naturally untamed lip balms. I've been feeling a bit run down and with the cold weather my lips normally get all dry and deflated. Luckily, this time they haven't actually had the chance to dry out since I've been using these habitually. The peppermint lip balm is cool, smooth and soothing. It instantly give my lips the boost it so desperately needs in this shitty cold weather. The Turkish delight balm, I literally just want to eat it, need I say more? So silky and hydrating ๐Ÿ’ฆ. I can't fault either one of these products, one lives in my coat pocket and the other in my bag. Really beautiful products and the ingredients are 100% natural ๐ŸŒฟ.

Alteya Organics Bio Damascena
Alteya Organics Bio Damascena Rose Otto Day Moisturiser ๐ŸŒŸ. This beautiful and seriously indulgent moisturiser contains Bulgarian rose oil and the scent is absolutely amazing. It has a thick and creamy consistency and is very efficient at retaining the skins moisture. Unfortunately due to my cystic acne breakout I can't use this on my face at the moment but I've been using consistently on my neck and dรฉcolletage for the past week and have noticed a considerable difference. My chest area got burnt during the summer and the skin has been feeling quite thin and dull, 7 days use of this moisturiser and the skin feels plump, hydrated and I haven't been getting those annoying crease lines all over my chest when lying down. This is a brilliant moisturiser and I can imagine it's absolutely perfect for maturing skin as it does such an efficient job of plumping. I find the smell of rose so soothing so this is my absolute favourite to apply before bed and is a firm part of my pm routine ๐ŸŒน. Looking forward to clearing my skin up and trying this on my face, I'll let you know how I get on. .
