Since the holidays are officially over, I’m feeling in the need of some additional TLC skin-wise. With all the drinking and eating and late nights I feel like my skin just isn’t on its A game. Over the holidays I stocked up on a few favourites, and they’re all citrus themed!
I’ve read about many anti-aging benefits from Vitamin C, so its no wonder my favourite natural lotions have Vitamin C in them! On the right, you’ve got Vitamin C and Sea Buckthorn lotion from Now Solutions– one for body and one facial moisturizer. This is my absolute FAVOURITE!!! I don’t often repurchase products because there are just way too many out there to try. Unless they wow me I won’t really bother. This lotion is it! It smells incredible, like fresh sweet oranges and it is effective without over moisturizing and making my skin break out.
Now Solutions is also an affordable and natural based brand sold in health food stores and they do not test on animals. If you’ve read my natural skincare regime post, you’ll know I’m a fan of natural skincare products. If not, click here to read it 🙂
And of course I paid a visit to The Body Shop. They have amazing deals this time of year and I scored the amazing Satsuma Body Butter in the jumbo size for just $15!!! While The Body Shop is a “natural” brand, they do use a high amount of artificial scents like parfum in their products. This is a downside but…. I just LOVE their Satsuma line so I had to.
I also purchased The Body Shop’s Vitamin C Skin Boost Serum. It is meant to be applied after moisturizing and leaves my skin so soft! I’m really liking it so far, it isn’t greasy or tightening, and you don’t need to use very much. At $26, I’ll have to see if it really wows me over time.
