Organic Body Essential

The Organic Body Essentials range specialise in skincare products targeted to moisturise skin with the use of natural products. Their products contain antioxidants and are full of nutrients to nourish your skin. The two 150ml oils are perfect for those with dry skin and don't worry it is perfect for those who suffer acne prone skin as well as this oil is proven not to block pores. As I suffer from break outs these were a major concern, but after applying Baobab oil to my face nightly I noticed a huge difference. My skin feels softer and appears brighter , also I have less breakouts.                                                                                                                                              
                                                                                          The Marula oil is known to be hydrating and
           reduce redness. Packed with pure cold                    press properties.                                                                                                                                                                
          The Baobab oil contains vitamins                             A,D,E,F,omega 3, 6 and 9.
          I would highly recommend these oils as they             have made a huge difference to my skin and             with seeing a visible difference my mind is also           at rest knowing these products contains                     natural ingredients and will keep my skin in tip                                                                                               top shape for previous years to come.

The Mafura body butter is also part of the organic body essentials range and proves to be also very moisturising. It definitely softens and moisturise the skin , as I have noticed after showering when applying to my legs and arms I am left with smooth feeling skin. It can also be used in the hair to provide hydration for those with dry damaged ends, just apply as a conditioner after shampooing and voilĂ  ! The only problem I have encountered with this product is it has a low melting point so I found it hard to keep it in its solid state , the best solution if it doesn't keep solid in a cool room place it in the fridge.

Here is a post from Carly Woods at HSN telling us skin lovers how to help take care and revitalise our skin !

4 Overnight Beauty Products You Should be Using

When it comes to beauty sleep, I think we generally fall into two categories; those who have managed 8 hours of sleep a night and those who haven’t. For the ones who haven’t, they consequently have to do a darn good job faking it.

So, why does this happen? Simply put, sleep is an essential component to an effective skin care regimen, a time when our skin heals and repairs itself. Therefore, if you’re not getting enough sleep, your skin may start to suffer.

If you need help utilizing the small number of hours you do get or you want to ensure you are stretching your 8 hours as far as they can go, you need the right tools. There are specific night time products that can work in harmony with your skin’s renewal process. More than not, these products will be heavier and thicker consistencies. For this reason, washing your face in the morning is equally as important as washing it at night – you need to remove these heavy products or your skin may become congested.

Shop Facial Resurrection Serum on HSN1. Begin With The Base

First, I always recommend using a serum. Facial serums are used to address specific problems such as wrinkles, aging and brightness. Apply a few drops to clean skin and using your hands press the serum into your skin.

2. Add The Primer

Especially in the colder months, you want to follow step one with a layer of oil for added hydration. Plus, you will wake up with beautiful and plump skin.

3. Don’t Forget To Moisturize!

Lastly, simply apply a moisturizer.  My advice is to opt for a comforting and hydrating formula. I like to see it as a blanket; keeping in the goodness of the serum and oil.

4. Last But Not Least - Give Your Eyes Some Love

Don’t forget an eye cream! Try to use a powerful wrinkle reducing formula. Make sure you always use a very tiny amount; overloading the skin around your eyes with too much of a heavy product can cause puffiness and sometimes breakouts.

On days when you have little to no time or just want to fall into bed, try an overnight facial. Now this doesn’t mean you have to lie still with your face up to ensure you don’t cover your pillow in product. You can use facial creams that are highly concentrated and you use like a serum or moisturiser for a powerful whack of goodness.

What would your face say about your current night time routine?

Tip Top nailpolish

I was kindly sent these gorgeous nail polishes to try out from Tip top nail polish and I am very pleased with the results.

Not only are the nail polishes very pigmented but are known to be toxin free and enriched with vitamin E to moisturise your nails. Also it is not tested on animals what more could you want.

While it claims to be fast drying I didn't notice a big difference in drying time compared to other polishes I have tried.

 (from left to right)

"Armourplate"- I'm in love with this colour it is filled with silver glitter giving your nails a brilliant sparkle

"Jeepers Creepers"- A shimmery dark blue

"Fairy Dust" - light lilac

"Mango Tango"- A bright orange packed with yellow fine glitter

"Sun Kissed"- Bold sunshine yellow

"Get Reddy"- A shimmery red with a hint of pink

Overall these nail polishes are well worth buying as they feel high quality and have super pigmentation.
