i would just like to pledge an almighty thankyou to the wonderful people at GlossyBox for rescuing my face throughout these chilly months, the only reason why it has survived is due to two products featured in my october and november GlossyBox, here they are;
'Dermalogica age smart, multivitamin thermafoliant' has now become my HOLY GRAIL exfoliator and i would gladly shout it from the rooftops! rubbed into dry skin using circular motions allows the exfoliator to self heat and creates a tingle on the skin, the small sandy particles heat and exfoliate the skin, the licorice root extract, rosa flower oil and the clove leaf oil, in the exfoliator leaves the skin feeling silky. and boy oh boy do i just love it. thankyou dermalogica!
at Dermalogica they say -A powerful thermal skin polisher that combines physical and chemical exfoliants to refine skin texture and enhance penetration of age-fighting actives into skin, while advanced technology ingredients condition and treat the skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.
admittedly i am only 19 and do not have particularly 'old' skin that needs age-fighting products but you might as well start early, hopefully i will reap the benefits by the age of 50 and will hopefully look around 25 haha. can't we all wish.
ingredients that stand out for me are; Hydrolyzed Opuntia Ficus Indica Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Soybean Extract, Licorice Root Extract, Seed Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, Lemon Peel Extract, Olive Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Rosa Flower Oil, Clove Leaf Oil, Lemon Peel Oil, Rosewood Wood Oil.

'MONU' have an amazing 'soothing touch recovery balm' which really is soothing and does recover the face with the help of a little balm. after exfoliating with the dermalogica multivitamin thermafoliant rinse your face with warm water and pat dry, again in circular and upward motions apply the balm. the balm is cooling and soothing and leaves your skin feeling so soft and so silky and so clean and fresh, i could not dream of a better product, the product is great used as a primer and also as a general moisturiser.
at MONU they say - Skin is soothed and skin reactions are subdued. The natural barrier and lipid content of the skin is improved. Skin is naturally protected.Suitable to calm environmental or elemental damage and invasive dermatological procedures.
once again this product helps prevent premature ageing through the help of plant flavonoids which i again i do hope i will one day reap the benefits of all this early age preventing skin care. it is supposed to provide immediate relief and is suitable for all skin types even sensitive or stressed, yippee! there are those all important and famous peptides present to deal with irritation and inflammation. the balm contains shea butter, sodium hyaluronate which helps the barrier function and evening and primrose and blackcurrant oil which repairs important skin lipids.
ingredients that stand out for me are; bergamot essential oil, blackcurrant seed oil, evening primrose oil, plant falvonoids, rose essential oil, she butter and hyaluronic acid.
the monu website is also extremely helpful, each ingredient is explained where it's from and why it's used.
and so here it is my oh so greatful thankyouuuuuuu DERMALOGICA and MONU for leaving me with silky smooth and exceptionaly great smelling skin.
