I have become quite skin care obsessed at the moment and found a brand which works wonders with my skin so I thought I would share this with everyone!

Hydrating Foaming Cleanser: This is a gorgeous face wash, and it is the one I tend to use on a day-to-day basis. It has a really light foaming consistency which cleanses my skin beautifully whilst keeping it moisturised at the same time! I find it easily takes away any left-over make-up and is such a lovely product to use on my face. I find it brightens and refines my skin tone, leaving me blemish free! Some of the major-up sides to this product are that it contains plant derived exfoliators to gently refine skin, alongside vitamins A, C and E and it has an allergen free fragrance. In my opinion you can never start too early with anti-aging products and this is from the anti-age range which is great to keep the wrinkles at bay! I sometimes suffer from sensitive skin and this is so gentle on my face that I would recommend it for lots of different skin types as a daily face wash to use morning and night.

Cooling Menthol Facial Scrub: This product is also from the anti-age range. I use this once a week because as much as I find it is a nice addition to my skin care routine, I also find that exfoliating too often is a bit harsh on my skin. This product helps to improve my complexion, leaving it softer, brighter and more radiant. It is menthol scented which I find really cooling on my skin - hence the name! It is of quite a creamy consistency and contains gentle micro beads to smooth and exfoliate the skin. I also find this is great to use to get rid of any existing skin blemishes or to prevent any new ones from arising. It also contains pomegranate and raspberry to help protect against damaging free radicals. What more could you want from an exfoliator!

Purifying Foaming Cleanser: This cleanser is really similar to the hydrating foaming cleanser, but comes from the anti-blemish range instead of the anti-age range. It has anti-bacterial qualities which help to clean pores and impurities on the skin. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling beautifully cleansed, refreshed and my complexion much brighter. It contains Salicylic Acid which is aimed at targeting blemish prone skin, Willow Bark for its anti-bacterial properties and Arnica to help soothe and reduce skin inflammation caused by blemishes. I often switch between the two cleansers as my daily face washes, depending on how my skin is and how many blemishes I have as my skin can be quite unpredictable!

Sebum Control Cleanser: With similar ingredients as the purifying foaming cleanser, this product is just as effective at controlling spot prone skin. This is a one-step, alcohol free anti-bacterial cleanser aimed at refining, purifying and cleansing pores whilst maintaining the skins moisture. This product is really easy to use, you just apply with a cotton pad and wipe over the oily parts of the face.

Oil Control Day Cream: I apply this cream in the morning, but you can use it at night too. It is has a really light formula as you can see from the picture and is easily absorbed into the skin. It is a really lovely daily moisturiser and helps fight blemishes too!

I hope you have found this post useful - I know it is a lot of  text but I really would recommend you to try these products and the Dr. Nick Lowe skin care range. I do think skin care is a personal choice as so many people are different but it worked for me so it might be worth a try! I was introduced to this by my Mum who loves it too and I don't plan on switching products any time soon. Each product has a really light fragrance and apply really smoothly to my face. As I said before, I have quite sensitive skin and these have worked really well on my face. I also think that for the price they are such good value for money and there is something for everyone throughout the ranges!

Does anyone have any skin care recommendations? Or have you tried this range - what do you think?
