March has flown by so fast! I don’t know how that’s happened when January and February seemed like the longest months ever. Over the last month, I’ve been trying out some new products from Notino and I’ve now got some new favourites.
I’ve always had dry skin, but recently I’ve had a reaction to something on my cheek which has led to it becoming really dry. I’ve been fixing this with Hyaluronic Acid from Revolution Skincare which I have been using every night before bed. In the morning, I’ve been spritzing my face with a spray from the Revolution Skincare Mini Essence Hello Hydration kit. My favourite is the Hyaluronic Nourishing Moisturising Spray – I find it really makes the difference if I use it in the morning before my usual moisturiser. When my skin isn’t so dry, I’ve been using the Superfruit Brightening Skin Lotion to perk my complexion up a bit and the Rosehip Regenerating Skin Serum during the day when I am makeup free. Having mini versions of products is a great way to be able to try out different things without shelling out for the full size products. I now know that I would get the full sized versions of each of these as I have been able to work them into my daily skincare routine.
Another spray that I love is the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. This is an old favourite but one that I always get when it starts to get a bit warmer. I love spraying it on my face when I feel like I need to cool down. It’s also great over makeup. It makes my face feel so refreshed and also helps to brighten the skin.
On the topic of skincare, I’ve also been trying out a new mask after I use my face cleanser. I’m a big fan of face masks but having to wait 15 minutes for them to dry isn’t always convenient. The Nuxe Insta-Masque purifies and cleanses in just two minutes which is ideal when you want a quick skincare routine. I’ve been using this twice a week throughout March and I love how it makes my skin feel. It’s cleansing without being drying and doesn’t leave my skin tight or sore. It has a lovely light scent and because you don’t need to wait for it to dry, it doesn’t take too long to remove it.
Another favourite for March is the Nuxe Rêve de Miel lip moisturising stick. I’ve been a big fan of the Rêve de Miel lip balm that comes in a pot for years now. However, it’s not the sort of thing that you want to use out and about. The stick version is a great product for just throwing in your handbag and using whenever you like. I’ve been using this a lot recently, as I find that masks can make my lips feel really dry.
