The Apa Beauty Lip Exfoliator is an absolute gem! If you want soft, kissable lips, this should be your go-to remedy. Cosmetic dentist and Apa Beauty founder, Dr. Michael Apa says “a great smile is a beauty essential” and I could not agree more. The Apa Lip Loofah is a gentle scrub derived from sugar and sweet almond seeds. It works to buff away dull skin to help reveal smoother, healthier looking lips. Jojoba oil, shea butter, and orange peel condition lips to soothe and help maintain moisture.

The Sunday Riley Mattifying Martian Melting Water Gel Toner is another completely new product to me and I’ve never used anything quite like it. It comes out of the bottle as a pale green gel and as soon as it’s massaged into the skin, it immediately melts from a treatment gel to a water toner, leaving your skin looking beautiful and matte! The toner is formulated to target oily skin and is full of incredible ingredients: Bentonite clay mattifies excess oil while visibly reducing pore size. Marshmallow and green tea soothe and diminish the look of redness for a calmer-feeling complexion, while cucumber and witch hazel extracts tone and tighten. Manuka, a relative of tea tree oil, in conjunction with black cumin and magnolia bark extracts, provides purifying properties to balance oily and problem skin conditions while promoting a visibly improved, clearer, smoother, and shine-free complexion.

The Rosalena Beauty & The Beast Face Oil is actually an already tried and tested product for me. I didn’t even need to try this to know that it’s good! Read about my previous experience using Rosalena Oils here and here. Antioxidant loaded, the bio-active ingredients in the oil are instantly absorbed, leaving skin hydrated, toned & shine-free. I use my oil morning and night, itt makes a great base for make-up, or even post-shave for men. It is fuss-free, multitasking, high-quality skincare at it’s best and it leaves my face glowing.

The Skyn Iceland Brightening Eye Serum is a wonderful little find. It is a lightweight, peptide-enriched eye primer serum that resurfaces and brightens the under-eye area. This serum delivers advanced age-fighting actives deep into skin for targeted wrinkle repair, intense hydration and improved firmness and elasticity over time. It can be used alone or before your regular eye cream.

Last but not least, the Potion London Beauty Formula is am award-winning, two month supply of vitamins specially formulated to support healthy hair, skin and nails. The Beauty Formula contains the optimum balance of 19 vitamins & minerals, developed specifically to promote clear and healthy skin, strong nails and beautiful, lustrous hair. Vitamin C supports collagen formation, Vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant, B Vitamins contribute to healthy skin, hair, eyes and nails, Biotin contributes to healthy hair, Pantothenic Acid helps to alleviate and prevent hair loss, Iron helps to reduce fatigue and promotes healthy skin, Zinc contributes to healthy hair, skin and nails, Folic Acid can help to reduce and prevent acne, Copper helps to develop collagen and elastin, Magnesium contributes to healthy teeth and hair, Chromium can help control skin disorders such as eczema and acne, and Selenium contributes to skin elasticity. I took my first vitamin pill today, so I’m looking forward to seeing the full results in two months time.
