Mediterranean Almond Milk with Oats Instant Soothing Mask- shop
I’m not gonna sit here and say that I wear face masks all the time, and i’m a great judge of what is and isn’t a good face-mask BUT this one has won my heart! This face-mask is easy to apply and feels amazing on the skin. The smell is also another plus for me! I usually leave my face masks on for about 15-20 minutes, in order to have the full effects of it. This face mask washes off really easily and the results are instant. My face immediately looks clearer and brighter, and after about 5 minutes the softness kicks in. I don’t want to toot my own horn, but I have quite good skin anyway, so I don’t use face masks to improve anything in particular, but just to generally give my face a good wash and looking after. I can definitely vouch for this product as it does leave your face feeling light, fresh and cleansed. I don’t even feel the need to moisturise after as the almond milk keeps it moisturised (you can feel this when your washing it off, as it acts as a cream). I know that I will 100% be buying this product once it runs out, and at the rate i’m using it, it will be really soon! So if your looking for a product that is light and easy to use this is definitely one to consider. Have you tried this? What are your thoughts!?

Almond Milk Body Yogurt – shop
The thought of yogurt for your body sounds absolutely weird but it is incredibly genius. It has a very light yet moisturising texture leaving your skin feeling smooth and silky. I have been using this product for the last couple of weeks, predominantly on my legs. My legs are my latest body project because for some time now I have been suffering with dry skin in this area. Today my legs have come a long way by using this product and combining the other body shop products below as part of my morning skin care regime. I apply the body yogurt as soon as I come out of the shower. I find that applying it on my wet skin locks in more moisture – this is particularly effective for those who suffer with dry skin. This method should leave your skin feeling moisturised for a longer period. If you haven’t tried moisturising on wet skin you should try it out and let me know how it goes!
Mango Exfoliating Sugar Body Scrub – shop
This is one of the first scrubs that I have used that genuinely leaves my skin feeling SMOOTH! I really can’t explain the feeling but this scrub is one that will definitely be a staple in my body and skin care collection. I use this in the shower to exfoliate my legs and my post waxed feminine area. The main aim is to remove dead skin cells and prevent ingrown hairs. I use a loofah pad to exfoliate, but you can also use am exfoliating glove. My only critique is that the creamy texture of the body scrub means that it is less abrasive than other scrubs which is not necessarily a bad thing but if you are looking for a scrub which has more beads/granules which make you feel like you are scrubbing your skin to death then this product may not work for you.
