Now that it is a new year I wanted to share with you some of my favourite beauty products I have used in 2017. Some of these I have rebought several times because I can’t live without them. I tried so many products in 2017 it was so hard for me to narrow things down to a few products. When I was using all of these face products together my skin was at it’s best. I have since repurchased the Idealia Night Peeling serum because I can’t live without it.
I have never been disappointed by a Kate Somerville product before and the ExfoliKate Glow Moisturizer in combination with the exfoliating treatment gives the results of flawless, glowing skin. I noticed a difference in my skins texture and brightness almost overnight. If you are in the market for a new moisturiser, I would consider this one, especially if you have dull skin.

This serum combination is incredible I can’t remember the last time my skin was this smooth and radiant. I Love that there is one serum for the evening and another for the daytime. I am so sad that I am all out of this serum because it makes my skin flawless.
Forever Flawless AM/PM Serum Duo:
This dynamic duo is a full 24-hour treatment to protect your skin while improving tone and texture. The AM serum is packed with vitamin C to help protect you from free radical damage (from the sun and pesky pollution) during the day. The PM serum uses glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid to treat fine lines, acne, and even out the texture of your skin.
I have been searching for the holy grail of face peels, and I finally found it. I have tried several different brands that have glycolic and exfoliating toners, but I find that most of them made my skin dry and irritated. After I finished my first bottle, I immediately bought my second bottle. When I finally finished up my second bottle, I decided to wait a few weeks to see how my skin would react. After a few days, my skin was terrible, It looked dry and textured, and it started to break out. It took me a few weeks to realise what the problem was. Once I narrowed things down and bought a new bottle my skin started to improve again within a few days.
IDÉALIA NIGHT PEELING:
A peeling action [Glycolic Acid + Hepes] has been combined with the extracts of Fermented Black Tea and Blueberry containing Polyphenols, as well as Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water.
Suitable for daily use, and for sensitive skin.
This liquid essence reveals a radiant and more even looking complexion, a
smoother feeling surface, a velvety touch. Night after night, upon awakening, skin gets its natural glow back. Wrinkles look reduced. In 1 week, skin appears more radiant, luminous and healthier-looking.*
This has become one of my favourite eye creams because it seriously works. I love that it performs double duty by making your lashes longer and reduces the appearance of wrinkles around the eye. My lashes have become so long and full after a few shorts weeks. I have since run out of the serum, but my lashes are still long, I would repurchase this serum.
LIFTACTIV SERUM 10 EYES & LASHES:
Featuring 10% Rhamnose, a naturally-derived plant sugar, clinically-proven to act on skin rejuvenation and fight the signs of ageing. Combined with Hyaluronic Acid for an immediate plumping & hydrating action. With Ceramides to visibly fortify and condition eyelashes.
This dual-powered eyes & lashes serum shows efficacy on the appearance of crow’s feet, under-eye wrinkles and even eyelashes. Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and helps to firm skin around the eye. Visibly fortifies and conditions lashes. After 1 month, smooths and illuminates eyes to restore a more youthful, wide-eyed appearance.
I was sceptical to try these products because they seemed like a gimmick to me. Perhaps it is the name or that I always see so many bloggers posting Hairfinity on their Instagram. Well, boy was I ever wrong because these products are amazing. My hair was so dry and damaged before using these products. Now when I get out of the shower, I spray my hair with the leave-in conditioner and I can easily comb through all of my tangles. After I blow dry my hair until it is slightly damp I add a few drops of the botanical oil to the ends of my and let it air dry. My hair is so soft and smooth now, and it is growing so long. I am now dying to try the shampoo and conditioner.
