Something I long for maybe a little too much is glowing skin. Having a typically combination complexion you might not think I covet the extra glow but there is a difference between being radiant and being oily. I've noticed within the past few weeks even when it's not been overly warm in the UK that my skin is still incredibly radiant. My diet has been much better as of late which, of course, has played a huge role in my lit from within look as well as a certain combination of products.
LIZ EARLE INSTANT BOOST SKIN TONIC*: This was one of the first toners that I ever used and is still one of my all-time favourite skincare items. It's the follow up step in my toner routine that hydrates and balances my complexion perfectly. It adds just enough moisture to keep my skin look healthy and fresh. The scent is particularly calming in the AM and it's perfect for spritzing on throughout the day if you've forgone makeup.
BALANCE ME SMOOTH AND CALM FACE BALM*: I've declared my love for this particular cleansing balm many times in the past. As I don't own a manual facial exfoliator this balm is how I get a little bit of an extra scrub into my routine. It's important to not go overboard when using this as too much exfoliation results in broken capillaries in delicate areas of the face. I love that this contains small little beads as I find them just effective enough to slough away any dead skin that a chemical can't tackle without being too harsh.
DR JART WATER FUSE SLEEPING MASK*: For months I've been reaching for The Body Shop Bouncy Sleep Mask and forgot just how awesome this is. It's not as thick in consistency as TBS option which makes it perfect for the warmer months as it's not as detectable on the skin. Even though it's lighter in consistency it still provides a huge hit of hydration overnight so you're left with glowing complexion come morning.
CLINIQUE TURNAROUND MOISTURISER IN GOLDEN GLOW: This is a superb summertime moisturiser. Oil free whilst still making your skin glow like nothing else. It makes my skin feel baby soft even with the smallest amount and it provides a beautiful base for any makeup you're applying over the top. As it contains a slight tint it makes it easy to forgo any priming and concealing. This is definitely something I shall be revisiting next S/S.
CLINIQUE TURNAROUND REVITALISING OIL: I've tried multiple facial oils in the past and liked them, but never felt that much of attachment of them until this one came along. I love that it's not too oily, so you can apply in this is the morning and not have to sit around and wait hours for it to sink in. This has been giving me that glow that the models have on the catwalk but without the use of an illuminating balm or a shed load of highlighter. If you're on the lookout for an oil but are a little cautious of them then this is one I would highly recommend to beginners.
