I recently welcomed Katherine Daniels Treatment Boost into my skincare routine. The brand was founded by beauty therapists and industry experts Kirsti Shuba and Donna Tait when they wanted to create luxurious but simple products that really work. I love the brand’s serious and no-nonsense approach to their product, which are developed by scientists. The Treatment Boost formula is designed using plant stem cells to strengthen the skin and target lines, wrinkles, loss of tone, pigmentation & dark spots, redness, dehydration, dryness and an uneven skin texture. During this time in my life I am starting to notice some changes to my skin, and though I do not have any noticeable lines my skin does not feel as plumped as it was in my twenties. I have no intention to stop the inevitable and beautiful process of ageing but I will always seek out products that offer a natural boost for my skin at any point in my life, and the Treatment Boost really does leave my skin feeling rejuvenated and supple.
Helping me to minimise products and space in my bathroom Basis Sensitiv 2 in 1 Body Cleansing Bar by Lavera, which doubles up as a hair and skin cleanser. Lavera claim that these fresh smelling bars (I am also a fan of their Basis Sensitiv Moisture and Care Shampoo Bar) are 3 times more productive than liquid body washes, which are made with organise aloe vera. Their plastic-free products feel really kind to the skin- thanks to the organic ingredients- and are gentle on sensitive skins, and I just love the way my skin feels so soothed after use.
I have always been fascinated by how varied CBD can be, and I have always looked to this natural product to help with mood, sleep, physical wellbeing as well as managing menstrual pain. Here in the UK, restaurants and public spaces have reopened- so I am back to gently socialising again and meeting up with a few friends in cafes. I sometimes find crowded public transports overwhelming, so I have been taking CB.Do .REST tablets to help keep me relaxed and balanced. These are all-natural tablets contain magnesium, theanine, lemon balm and chamomile and are designed for daily consumption. Having these tablets in my handbag as I go about my day really assures me knowing I have support when needed and they taste great too.
Continuing my love of CBD, J’Tanicals has come through with a deep sea rebalancing CBD Cleanser that has all my favourite types of credentials- Vegan, cruelty-free, 100% natural, fragrance-free and microplastic free. This product really gives me a skin boost- as well as de-stressing CBD- it’s packed with only the most vital ingredients (such as precious sea-electrolytes) I need for clean skin but with a gentle touch. I really love simplicity when it comes to cleansing, and J’Tanicals has really hit the mark with this purifying blend.
The incredible fragrant Wild Pharmacy Cool and Calm Hydrating Face Mist has been really helping me to stay cool and refreshed this Summer. Containing a mix of wild and organic products including aloe vera, this toning mist offers a fresh and zesty blast of skin hydration on a Summer day. I have been keeping mine in the fridge for an ultimate cool down and also been using it as a makeup fixer on hotter days.
My current go-to toner is Biossance Squalane + BHA Pore-Minimizing Toner which was specially designed to clarify and refine pores. This is one of the most fragrant and hydrating toners I have used this Summer, thanks to the squalene ingredient which gently softens and retains the natural oils in the skin. Using this after a deep cleansing feels like such a treat as it also contains willowbark- a natural ingredient which helps unclog oil and dirt as well as toning the skin and exfoliating caviar lime extract.
This Summer update has been all about my own bathroom, but did you know I own two lovely dogs? When the ground is dry Summer dog walks can get really dusty, so Furr Collective Mane Gloss has been my saving grace when it comes to keeping my dogs cleansed. Their natural conditioning shampoo with soothing aloe and oatmeal has really helped to bring my Toy Poodle Lily’s white coat back to vibrancy with a lovely glossy and hydrated sheen without stripping it of its natural oils. She smells so perfect afterwards and thoroughly enjoys getting pampered.
