Ok mummies, so you have your Valentine’s Day date planned with your man. You look in the mirror and what do you see? Well, my eye are puffy from not enough sleep, and my complexion is dull from lack of sunshine. I see a tired woman in urgent need of some TLC. If you feel the same, I compiled a list of necessary skin care products that will help you look your best this Valentine’s Day. It’s all about self love.
Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum & Eye Serum
Those two serums from Dermalogica are my god sent. They gave my face and eyes a boost of energy in just a few days. Both original BioLumin-C Serum and Eye Serum formula delivers the same brightening and firming – in a lightweight formula optimised to help fortify the delicate face and eye area. My skin looks more variant and firmer. I am definitely one step closer to look irresistible that special evening.
Fresh Creme Ancient Soft Cream
Instant hydration anyone? This weightless moisturiser delivers the same supreme nourishment the original Crème Ancienne is known for with a new velvety whipped texture. Personally I am a huge fan of this fast-absorbing formula that provides hydration after just 24-hours and visibly reduces the signs of ageing. My face looks almost like I wasn’t a mother of a little girl…I love this youthful-feeling complexion.
Lancer The Method – Polish, Cleanse and Nourish
If you haven’t heard of Harold Lancer and his miraculous The Method, it’s finally time for you to start using it right before your Valentine’s Day date. This fantastic three step formulation offered by celebrity dermatologist will make you look irresistible in no time.
Step 1 – Polish. This daily use skin polish is a skin resurfacing treatment. Formulated with a two-pronged approach to exfoliation, this unique polish includes pure minerals and Pumpkin and Pomegranate enzymes to gently and effectively remove surface debris and dull, dry surface cells. A warming element and Lavender scent complete this luxurious daily ritual.
Step 2 – Cleanse. This lightly-foaming cleanser is enriched with a rice amino acid complex, moisture-rich hydrators and skin soothing agents. It gently removes impurities, surface dirt and sebum for healthy-looking, refreshed skin.
Step 3 – Nourish. This anti-aging moisturiser hydrates and provides key anti-aging benefits. Nurturing Avocado and Olive Fruit Oils cushion skin in moisture. Hyaluronic Acid and peptides further boost skin’s hydration level to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. My skin is smooth and plump, visibly renewed and glowing.
Rodial Ultimate Bee Venom Kit
Containing our three definitive anti-ageing products, this is the ultimate all round anti-ageing skincare routine to rejuvenate the skin for a youthful-looking complexion. With bee venom working in synergy with a unique complex of plant stem cells to help visibly improve skin tone and elasticity and plump out appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Rodial’s bee venom moisturiser is an advanced formula that revitalises and renews for naturally younger looking skin. Bee Venom works in synergy with a unique complex of plant stem cells to help visibly improve skin tone and elasticity. Cyclopeptide-5 and Juvinity™ refine the skin’s surface to help plump and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst Hyaluronic Acid provides intensive moisturisation and long-lasting hydration for a radiant complexion.
Votary Intense Night Oil Rosehip and Retinoid
I am a massive fan of all things natural. And this oil is packed full of nature’s most powerful ingredients: Avocado oil for vitamin K, tomato seed oil and rosehip oil rich in lycopene and pro-vitamin A antioxidants. All are delicately scented with Rose. Acmella flower extract improves dermal structure resulting in firmer feeling skin, while Australian sandalwood extract, a natural source of ximenyic acid, reduces inflammation and fine lines. My skin feels nourished and more radiant after just a few days! I am almost ready for my Valentine’s Day date.
Seed to The Skin The Cure Molecular Cell Regeneration Complex
Again the power of nature. And I have to say, that I am already addicted to rose and mandarin essential oils blended in this moisturising complex for both day and night. Formulated with cell regeneration and collagen production in mind, they developed a system to deliver smaller molecules of active ingredients to where they work the best with proven results. And do you know what…they clearly know what they are doing because the results are beyond my imagination. Plumper and less tired skin after just 15 days. I am one happy mama!
Fat & Moon Love Thyself Bod Oil
I believe in holistic approach to beauty. So it’s not just about your face but the whole body. I really love the warming elements of the Love Thyself Bod Oil. It reminds me of the sensuality of being incarnate. Vetiver and clove essential oil make for a warm and earthy blend. The warming properties of clove make the Love Thyself a perfect massage oil. Apricot kernel oil contains a serious dose of Vit E, protecting the skin from oxidization (sun and free radical damage) right alongside emollient and anti-inflammatory properties as well as vitamin B-17.
