Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer

These little things are fantastic! Using them is like having a mini microdermabrasion facial and are great for use in between treatments. They come in these cute individual packets and slip over your index finger. They're soaked in chemical and physical exfoliants, as well as Rooibos Tea and Green Tea to smooth and brighten your skin and even tone. So you don't have to wet them - minimal fuss ('like'). 

You remove all your make up first, then brush in little circular motions all over your face. You then leave for a few minutes to dry before applying your moisturiser.They don't feel abrasive at all, and leave your skin so smooth and, well, resurfaced! They are even prescribed for skin conditions and proven to reduce premature ageing. 

I know a few guys who use Dermalogica, it really is a unisex brand I think because it is more associated on the clinical side of skin products, so these are for everyone! They come in a pack of 35 little 'doses' and can be found on-line from between £49-£65.00.

Temple Spa Moisturiser

This is my favourite moisturiser, I use it every morning, it's called 'Peace Be Still' By Temple Spa. As you can imagine I have tried absolutely loads of moisturisers. I'm really fussy with moisturiser as I guess many of you are as we all have different skin types. I think there's more categories than just 'Dry', 'Normal', 'Combination'.... Everyone is has their own combination & sometimes a mix of these three types in different areas of our face. Personally I like a light moisturiser that isn't greasy and that is absorbed into the skin so won't interfere with a foundation. My temple spa one does just that. It works well with my daily tinted moisturiser which I use on top, with my Clarin's Beauty Flash Balm, or MAC Strobe Creme in between. 

Temple Spa products are gorgeous, they feel expensive and have a nice scent to them, not too heavy. They offer lots of products for sensitive skin too. Temple Spa products are used a boutique hotels & Spas and can be found in  Harrods and On-line. They have the high end quality about them without a huge price tag.

Peace Be Still is £18.00 for 150ml. They also have a fantastic aromatherapy range too and I often have their candles going in my boudoir - In my photo is Nurturing Aromatic candle with Rose, Pink Peppercorn & Ginger (£25)

Restorative Hair Mask by Moroccan Oil

I've already told you about Moroccan Oil, now I have tried the Moroccan Restorative Hair Mask. I went along to Bannon's in Hampton to have my highlights done last week where they use a whole range of Moroccan Oil products. I tried the Restorative Hair Mask in replacement of conditioner. At home it can be used a couple of times a week, or you can leave it on wrapped in a towel for a deep treatment. It is a hair repair and deep conditioner to replenish your hair's natural oils which get stripped when we heat, style and coat our hair different products.

I loved it so much. It can be used with the Moroccan Oil too & style as usual. The mask deeply conditions your hair and leaves it really soft and silky. A few of you were asking about Moroccan Oil Light which is for finer hair, I talked to my hairdresser about this and it is specially designed for very very fine hair. The regular oil can be used on fine hair too (mine isn't very thick) just use it in a smaller quantity. The mask is a more intensive treatment, which my hair was much in need of after being back combed to within an inch of its life this weekend for my bridesmaid hair! The intensive conditioning mask smells absolutely gorgeous, I then used my Moroccan Oil on damp hair and blow-dried - the scent is delicious! The oil does the job of hair shine too. It stops your hair from absorbing moisture in the air so no more frizzing!

TIP: You can even use the Moroccan Oil on your hands, rub it in to your cuticles rather than on a towel when you have finished ;) My absolute favourite hair products!!
