Goood evening lovely people! 🌹
Hope you’re all well ❤️
It’s December!!! 😱 Is it just me or has this year absolutely flown by?! I wish I could rewind time sometimes and go back to certain periods of my life ☺️ But Onwards and Upwards! 💃🏻
Today I wanted to review some amazing handmade skincare sent to me by a lovely lady named Mette! Honestly, she is such a kind lady with so much talent ☺️
Mette makes her own organic skincare with no nasty chemicals (heaven for me!) and uses herbs from her own back garden! How amazing is that?! The skincare range is packed with ingrediens to calm and heal the skin in higher concentrations than what you would find in conventional skincare which makes them much more effective!
I was sent a lovely package with 3 of her skincare items inside namely:
🌹 Luminous Face Scrub
🌹 Beauty Serum
🌹 Beauty Cream
First of all, let’s talk about the packaging! It is extremely sturdy yet simple and oozes sophistication and quality. I believe the two jars are glass and the beauty serum seems like it is in a metal packaging.
The first item I tried was the luminous scrub!
This scrub is such a beautiful vibrant colour! It is packed with carrot oil and vitamin E and brown cane sugar! I use this once a week as this is a PROPER scrub. It will slough off them dead skin cells with ease. I like to take some with the spatula provided (handy!) and massage it into my face with soft circular motions. The sugar melts away and I use that as an indication as to when to wash it off 🌿
I kid you not, my skin was SO soft and moisturised after using this that I almost had the urge not to moisturise haha! Usually, scrubs leave me dry and red but not this one. My skin was glowing and felt revitalised! This scrub would be amazing for all skin types in my opinion! A real luxurious product 😍😍
After the scrub, I applied the beauty serum!
Now this serum had an ingredient I wasn’t very familiar with! Sea Buckthorn Oil. So, I went and did some research on it! Apparently, it’s great for healing the skin and also has an anti-ageing effect!
I used about 3 small drops for my whole face. This was very surprising as I was expecting it to be very greasy due to the coconut oil! I was very wrong! This absorbed in to my skin so fast and there wasn’t a trace of greasiness at all (fab news for my oily skin!). At this point I was constantly touching my face because it was as soft as a babes bottom! 😂
This serum is definitely my favourite from the 3! I have seen an improvement in my skin tone and my acne scarring has faded which is amazing 😱. When this finishes, I am definitely repurchasing! I also like to use it in my hair (I don’t know if I’m supposed to but what’s the harm right?! Hehe) and it feels more silkier than normal 😊
I can’t really talk about it’s effect on wrinkles (I’m 20 ha!) but I guess I’m preventing then by using this serum as it’s packed with anti-oxidants!
Finally, let’s talk about the beauty cream.
I think this is the only product with some sort of preservative (all natural of course) and that’s understandable!
I was the most scared about using this cream as it seemed very thick and emollient and not a good idea for my oily skin. I was wrong! And again, very surprised!
I use this cream in the mornings after a quick cleanse. I take a small amount out using the spatula provided and really massage it into my face. My foundation went on really well on top of this so as a base, it works really well. The most surprising thing about this cream is that IT KEEPS ME MATTE THROUGHOUT THE DAY WHAAAT?!?? 😱😱
Guys! It’s amazing! How?! Why?! Huh?! Coconut oil and cocoa butter seems like the worst ingrediets to put on oily skin but this works! I’m still surprised 😍😍 love love love!
This also leaves a lovely glow and leaves my face feeling soft and supple ❤️ perfect. Couldn’t ask for more in a cream 😊
These products range from £12 to £21 if my conversions are right. So they are slightly more expensive than your average drugstore lotions and potions but I think it’s fabulous value for money! The concentrations and potencies of the ingredients are something you aren’t going to find in a lot of products and the expiry date is ~6 months but these products will definitely make a difference to your skin straight away! As Mette says herself, there’s a sprinkle of modern witchcraft in these products ❤️
I would highly recommend checking these awesome products out if you’re looking for skincare that packs a punch 😉😉
I really hope you enjoyed this review and if you have any questions about the products please feel free to ask. 🌿🌹
Have a great weekend ya’ll!
