▪️FAVOURITE NIGHTTIME MOISTURISER-Propolis Sleeping Cream On My Blog▪️
I am often asked what is my go to moisturiser for night time. My instant answer is Pure Bubbles Propolis Sleeping Cream @pure_bubbles_soapery
Although there isn’t a need for two different moisturisers(UNTOLD FACT), getting ready for bedtime is a like ritual for me. I find relaxing scents among other things put me into night mode and eases me into improving my circadian rhythm.
And, that’s why I adore this velvety moisturiser. It in made with cold pressed Moringa, Sea Buckthorn, Pumkin Seed and Sunflower Oils with a gentle hit of French Lavender Essential Oil. It spreads on the skin like a dream and leaves it soo supple. These oils are rich in Omega Fatty Acids(that are known to strengthen the skin and offer anti inflammatory benefits even for acne issues), offer high antioxidant benefits and with the star ingredient, PROPOLIS that has been used to provide immune support and help with many skin issues. I have never been so much into oil based moisturisers because they always tend to start clogging my skin, but this one is so amazing(touch wood) that I will always have one in my vanity unless Bhavna(founder and formulator) comes up with an even better version😊. No matter what the routine, I always finish it with this cream applied all over my face, neck and décolletage.
If you have oilier skin type then try Propolis Drops which has Pomegranate, Rosehip, Black Seed, Argan and Pumpkin Seed Oils and very reasonably priced too
To read my detailed post on both the products mentioned above, go to the blog through the direct link in my profile. Don’t forget to subscribe, if you like the post!❤️

A few drops of this & any evidence of late night debauchery will be a worry of the past...
Skin needs moisture and protection—get yourself a sunscreen that can do both!
Hyaluronic acid draws moisture to the skin while squalene protects your moisture barrier.
Moisture Shield is also SPF30 to guard against those rays. And remember—sunscreen is a must year round.
Avocado Oil is a key ingredient for our heavenly Angel Balm... 🥑
The fatty acids in avocado oil are scientifically proven to have visible benefits for dry skin problems & accelerate the healing of wounds in a wonderfully natural way.
Angelic, you might say.

Gloriously glowing skin? Yes please...
Awaken will have you feeling fresh-faced every morning - a gentle cleanser that acts as an incredibly effective eye make up remover - A dash of Lavender essential oil provides a natural, mild antiseptic effect to keep breakouts at bay.

I love taking care of my skin, and because of it, I'm constantly researching and testing new products to improve it. I guess you can call me a skin junkie. Whether it's creams, vitamins, or foods I love seeing how each one affects our largest organ, that most people ignore, our skin. We are so willing to cover up our skin but not take care of it. Funny thing is, if we were to take care of our skin, we would have no need to cover it up. Read my latest blog post on 7 Ways to Improve Your Skin Now @ www.lovebecca.com

One of my favorite products when I got into skin care was vitamin C, and it still is! Preventive skin care that improves tone & texture is a win!
The formulation of vitamin C products makes a difference. Not all vitamin C products are created equal. That can help explain price differences, and what they can do for you.

If you ask me the secrets to a very smooth and younger looking face,
Then you must read this short piece. .
. One simple thing that is very important to having a smooth baby face is getting it right with your face toners. .
Always use Ph balancing and natural toners that helps to remove the left over of cleansers, soothe, restore and prime your skin for subsequent products such as serum and moisturizers, .
Doing this will always leave your skin well cleaned, viberant and feeling baby soft.
And avoid using alcohol based astringents which has the tendency to disorganise the Ph balance and dry out your skin making it looking rough, tired and sometimes with more issues than usual.
That watermelon juice in the picture is processed to be used as a natural face toner, I am sure you notice those 2 cotton balls intended to be used for that purpose.
It's not only your throat and stomach that love fruit juice, Note that you skin loves those too.😀😍
Another bubble masking client! This fun mask starts as a gel and turns into bubbles within 30 seconds of application. It takes about 5 min to bubble and return to a gel on the skin. This oxygenating process creates vibrant, radiant skin that feels plump and rejuvenated. It’s a very unique feeling and clients love the results! Available now!
Thanks to @krystina_inez for sharing her bubble selfie! She looks fabulous and you will too, after oxygenating your skin with this bubble mask. Krystina says, “Oxygen for the skin.....because it’s the secret. Thanks to my favorite esthetician for keeping my brows and skin on point @allisonmarie_beauty”

Introducing my favourite Vitamin C serum - Nuriss’ Vitamin C, B, E & Ferulic Infusion Serum! Why I love it? - it’s full of advanced antioxidants and skin-boosting vitamins plus it leaves my skin radiant, glowing and lightens my dark spots.
The founder of Nuriss Skincare @dranitasturnham states the following: • Ferulic Acid is a plant-based antioxidant that fights free radicals, a significant contributor towards oxidative stress, which results in DNA damage, and cellular ageing. • Vitamin C, AKA Ascorbic Acid, is a potent antioxidant, it fights free radicals and reduces oxidative stress. This serum contains 20% Vitamin C stabilised by the Ferulic acid. • Vitamin E is also a powerful antioxidant. It helps protect the skin from scarring and helps to maximise the skin’s hydration levels. Vitamin C and E combined optimises each other’s antioxidant effects and skin protection benefits are more effective. • Vitamin B3 is an excellent active that helps lighten the skin by reducing the visibility of melanin. Vitamin B3 inhibits the transfer of pigment to the surface of the skin, which helps alleviate dark spots. • Finally, Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) a rejuvenating vitamin that helps accelerate the natural healing process. This helps boost the collagen regeneration results of Vitamin C. Vitamin B5 has good skin penetration and also improves hydration levels in the skin.
All these ingredients combined, delivers the full scope of antioxidant care, skin rejuvenation, increases moisture and evens skin tone. .
#VerglasRefreshingCleanser contains papain, a natural enzyme found in papaya which promotes skin renewal and cell turnover. What's more, it helps to loosen and slough off dead skin and is ideal in skin lightening.

▪️FRAGRANCE FREE MOISTURISERS- WINTER EDITION▪️
(Swipe to see the entire video and pictures)
Regardless of the skin type, change of weathers do call for a switch and since it’s almost winters, I wanted to share two products that I will be using in colder months. They are part of my recent haul.
Lack of humidity and heat(both responsible for glossy dewy skin) does leave the skin dull and tight. Using products that provide hydration and the moisture levels of skin barrier is very important
Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream is formulated with Sea buckthorn water, Glycerin and Betaine(skin conditioners), Sunflower Seed Oil, Macademia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Arginine, Panthenol, Allantoin in a fragrance free formula. It packs a good punch of water and oil so dry skin types will love the skin softening effect. It will also provide the skin will essential components such as Hyaluronic Acid and Arginine. If you are suffering from dry, flaky skin that tends to look like it peels in certain areas then you should definitely try this out. For me, it will be used as a sleeping mask
Missha Near Skin Moist Lab Emulsion- Specifically formulated for sensitive skin types that also tend to feel dry. It is mostly geared towards supplementing the skin of the naturally present components that are lacking in compromised skin. Ingredients such as Squalane, Aspartic Acid, Lysine, Arginine, Cholestrol, Ceramides, Sodium Hyaluronate strengthen the surface making it less vulnerable to infections and dermatitis and red rashes-result of weakened barrier. It’s consistency is more of a lotion and feels lighter on the skin than the former so I will be using it as a moisturiser day and night during colder, less humid days and also on my next trip where the climate is always dry and will be very cold too.
I purchased both from @roseroseshop.official and highly recommend this website. Prices are very reasonable and I haven’t had to pay customs, yet. To be frank, I have been purchasing from them for very long.
You can also buy from Instasellers if you don’t have Internationally active debit/credit
Start the week as you mean to go on - Spotless.
This little wonderpot packs quite the punch - Spotless forms a clear film, protecting the affected area from bacteria whilst it regenerates with a synergetic blend of three powerful essential oils; Lemongrass, Geranium, Lavender. Aloe Vera & Evening Primrose oil heal & nourish the skin to prevent it from scarring. ✨
