Skincare: Day Cream


You guys know the drill with these posts by now and we have my day creams. When I put this post together I actually didn't realise just how many I had.  

Origins Brighter by Nature: This is my favourite day cream by far as it works at correcting dark spots and discolouration in the skin.  It also contains a very high SPF of 35 for a moisturiser is brilliant so it is perfect under my make up especially with this recent heatwave. As a combination to the more oily side of proceedings in the heat I find this gives my skin enough hydration without being at all greasy or slippy. 

Neals Yard Power Berry Daily Moisturiser: I was using this daily when I had ran out of Origins a couple of months ago now as it came free in a magazine. The smell of this moisturiser is incredible as it is jam packed full of berry goodness. I would say this would be brilliant for somebody who has quite oily skin but wants a boost of radiance in their complexion.Whilst I do really like this product I found it just didn't give me enough hydration as I would quite like but for no make up days it's perfect. 

Origins Balanced Diet: I used this solidly last summer when I was had really spot prone skin with a lot of active breakouts. This is a very light weight lotion but it still gives a high dose of hydration in the skin to leave your complexion looking fresh and healthy. It also has a lovely peppermint scent which feels wonderful on breakouts as it soothes them down a lot.

Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping: I got this as a little sample when I picked some up in Space NK and I am really glad I did. When my skin is feeling quite dry I use this as it really hydrates my skin without leaving it too greasy and it really does leave it plumped. I can imagine this will be brilliant in the winter months as I don't need it too much at the moment. 

Origins VitaZing: Now this product has a lot of hype in the skincare world and I am afraid I just don't see it. Yes it is a lovely moisturiser and it does give the skin a nice boost but the colour is just all of for me it is very orange. I know some girls who absolutely love this product like Suzie and Anna but they are naturally a lot less pale than I am naturally. However in this heat I have a caught a nice tan on my body but not on my face because I wear such a high SPF so I like to use a tiny bit of this under foundation to try and my face look part of my body again.

Elemis Pro Radience Illuminating Flash Balm: I wouldn't really class with as a moisturiser but then I wouldn't really class it as a primer either. This is what I turn to if I am going out for dinner or out for the evening (this is a once every 6 month occasion). I think this is Elemis's version of the beauty flash balm but as I have never tried that I can't make comment. This soothes everything over and creates a beautiful base for make up I am not quite sure what skincare benefits this really offers as I only use this for it's priming benefits.

Origins Make a Difference: When my skin is feeling a little dehydrated and lack lustre this is what I turn to. I like that this can be used morning or evening whilst the rest are strictly the day time. Again not something I am using a lot right now but in the winter months I definitely will be turning to this. I want to pick up a full size of this because it has such a beautiful consistency and leaves my skin feeling pepped up with hydration.
