beauty buys|currently loving

I've currently been loving a completely bare face and have noticed such an improvement in my skin. But I don't think it's just going make up free that's improved my complexion. These two products have been such a skin saviour -- Jojoba Youth Potion and Pixi Glow Tonic

My face isn't big on oils. The majority cause break outs and make my face feel slimy. Considering I use them, mostly, at night and so close to bed that just doesn't work for me {eye masks and a slippery face do not go well together}. This Jojoba oil is different. I must admit that the words "youth potion" drew me in but when I tested the product on my hand it felt simply sublime. The product is sold as a multi-vitamin for skin. It's naturally rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, E & F. It improves skin texture and gives a naturally radiant complexion.

What I've discovered -- it absorbs into skin quickly {but not too quickly} and leaves my face feeling moisturised and lush all day long {I've since started using it day and night}. I use it all over my face and neck and rub any excess into my cuticles and hands. There's a light, barely there, scent that doesn't irritate my skin or allergies {strong scents give me a migraine} and it has become one of those products that I actually enjoy using. Let's face it, sometimes skincare can be a chore but the Jojoba Youth Potion is not one of those products.


A few months ago I started having persistent breakouts on my chin. I attributed the majority of those to stress {being bullied by your boss will do that to you} but I wasn't going to let my face fall into a pattern. Not if I could help it anyway. I kept up with my double cleanse routine {see my fave product for the first step here} and it helped every area of my face aside from the right side of my chin. Dejected, I made a last ditch attempt and picked up the Pixi Glow Tonic from Adore Beauty and fell quickly in love.

Of course I'm naturally drawn to Pixi products because of Caroline Hirons but the Glow Tonic sells itself. It's an exfoliating acid toner which can sound scary {and, I must admit it frightened me a tad}. I imagined a liquid with scrubby beads in it. Perhaps, an acid that was too rough. But it's nothing like that. It's simply a smooth product {similar in texture to any cleansing water} that gently accelerates cell renewal to reveal a wonderful complexion.

What I've discovered -- it improves skin tone and reduces {or doesn't add to} the redness around my nose. I initially started using it day and night {on a cotton pad} and noticed the best improvement in my skin. Eventually, I figured only using it once a day wouldn't be so bad but the big differences stopped. My skin was maintained and looked better but not as good as before. So, I highly recommend, using it day and night. The product is free from alcohol so it doesn't dry it out. In fact, it leaves your face rather wonderfully hydrated and is perfection when followed with the Jojoba Youth Potion.
