As we vowed to include a bit more beauty here on our blog, showing you what we have actually been using daily seems like a somewhat obvious good start. As we’ve said before, we are by no means beauty experts but are always looking for those products that do what they say on the tin….. and work. Also once you are in your 30’s you have to really start thinking about your skin and that’s where we are at. So here’s a mixture of things we are lovin’ right now plus a couple of products if you are starting to consider upping your skincare routine to include those first anti-aging products then this ones for you…

The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2%

We’d heard about Retinol + anti ageing and we had also heard about The Ordinary too so when both collided into this product we knew we had to give it a go. Retinol is thought to be one of the best anti ageing ingredients in skincare and with lots of brands carrying a weighty price tag, this one is a complete bargain at only £8! As an introduction into this type of product we thought it was the perfect starter serum. It goes on really smoothly, without any harsh tingling or reaction you can get to stronger retinols, but make sure you sue a high SPF with this product.

Decleor Neroli Aromescence Oil

It claims to hydrate the skin plus plump up fine lines and also there must be a reason why this is one of Decleor’s best selling products, right. Yes! We love this oil! It’s lightweight enough so does not feel overly oily on the skin and the scent is fabulous. Immediately relaxing, it’s the perfect night time treat.

Nails Inc Long Wear Polish in Harrington Garden

As girls who have their nails painted pretty much all of the time and don’t have time to go for mani/pedis we have probably tried every different nail polish out there. Nails Inc is one that we keep coming back to for its creamy formula and long lasting glossy finish plus this cute candy pink is THE shade of the Summer we say.

Nails Inc 45 Seconds Topcoat

We’ve tried and test a whole heap of quick dry top coats and droplets but this one really does work. Its super fast drying {like 45 seconds, duh} and it also gives your polish the most amazing high shin. Those at home DIY manicurists amongst us will love it, we do.

Decleor Aroma White C+ Anti Dark Circle Multi Brightening Eyecare 

Eye cream: you know you should use it from a certain age but fiddling around with little pots and finger tip dabbing is just too laborious for us most of the time so this little stick is a god send! The applicator is SO EASY and the illuminating finish adds a sheen to your under eye that you never knew you needed or could love so much. This is a must in our book, we are stocking up.

Grow Gorgeous Strenthening Oil

This oil is a bit of a luxury but if you are looking to add a boost to your locks then give it a go. Packed with powerful ingredients that leave you hair silky soft and shining with health you run this oil through the mid to ends of your dry hair to help nourish and protect your hair, plus add a beautiful shine.We’ve been using it as a little hair treatment too at night for an extra intense boost!

Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum

If you hair is in a state of SOS then this serum could help! Too much colour and overdo-ing it a bit with the tongs, Hannah’s hair was in need of some serious TLC so this serum was  a welcome hair routine addition. Along with the Redken Extreme range and at home Olaplex 3 {we wrote about it here} this serum has been a nightly addition. It penetrates the hair follicles at the root to stimulate regrowth and improve hair density, volume and movement. We are not saying it’s a miracle cure but adding it a whole bunch of goodies to the roots of your hair as it grows back through has only got the help with healthy, lucious locks in our book.

Indeed Lab Vitamin C24

As well as retinol, we had also heard about Vitamin C as a must for anti-aging products. Skincare experts around the world consider it an anti-aging superstar apparently so we thought we’d give this 2 in 1 serum and moisturiser a go, and love it! It has a unique fast-absorbing, almost chalky formula and goes on like a primer so perfect for using first thing before your make-up. We are keen to explore more Vitamin C based products so will report back!

Decleor Micellar Oil

If we were writing a post on the lazy girls beauty routine then this cleanser would be in there! It really is a one stop shop for you face, removing your all make up {b~bye eye make up remover} as well as deep cleansing the skin. Super easy,  that’s what we like!

Decleor Hydra Floral Moisturising Fluid

Remember when we said that if you are using a retinol you need a SPF? Well this is the moisturiser we’ve been using! You can probably tell by now that we are big, big Decleor fans and this product doesn’t disappoint. It’s lightweight yet moisturising {its fluid so much lighter than a cream} and has that added bonus of the SPF 30. It also has to Hyaluronic Acid {sounds scary, it isn’t} for optimal hydration and fine line smoothing.

You might have noticed that most of these products are half full, that’s because we have been actually using them! opefully you’ll find 1 or 2 products that you like the look of, like we say we are not skincare masters but found these products worked for us. If you have any that you love and use religiously we would love to hear! Go on, share the love….!
