New additions to my skincare routine

Trilogy certified organic rosehip oil
Over the years I've become obsessed with oils, and this is great for moisturising any dry patches. A little bit goes a long way and I literally need the tinest of drops to intensively nourish the area of dryness around my chin. The oil does take a while to sink in, but it feels very light and non-sticky on the skin. Best of all, it's 100% natural and only contains pure rosehip seed oil.

Laidbare intense hydration creme
Since my Forest secrets serum ran out, this has been my go to night cream. I would describe it as a thick gel creme texture with a delicate rose scent. The moisturiser sinks in almost straight away, leaves my skin feeling hydrated and I always wake up with radiant, plumped up skin.

Vichy aqualia antiox 24hr hydrating fluid
This was originally sent to me to use as a moisturiser, but like a lot of products which contain spf, it broke me out. However after my L'oreal matte fluid finished, I tried this over my usual moisturiser and it works well as a facial sunscreen.

The light fluid offers spf12 and UVA protection, gets absorbed quickly and doesn't feel at all greasy on the skin. Like most sunscreens it has a dewy finish so I'd recommend powdering over the t-zone and I usually blot my skin around mid afternoon to keep shininess at bay.

Have you tried any of the above products? What's your favourite facial sunscreen?


  1. These products look very interesting, I love organic and am always up for trying new things =)

  2. Taryn - I'd highly recommend the Trilogy rosehip oil, it's a great multipurpose product x

  3. My favourite sunscreen for everyday is still one by Soap and Glory. I always, always repurchase!


  4. Dreams That Glitter xoxo - I remember reading your review a few months back. Will keep it in mind when this one runs out x
