Here are the products I received

Aura Manuka Honey Mask | £31 75ml | Find it here

There is nothing I enjoy more than applying a face mask after a relaxing, hot bath. This mask is thick in consistency but easily worked with and spreads easily across the skin. As my skin is most definitely on the drier end of the scale, Manila Honey is definitely something that works todeeply hydrate my complexion. After throughly cleansing, I applied a thick layer across my face and down my neck, before laying back and enjoying the scent of the mask. The vanilla pod really gives it a sweet scent combined with the zesty orange smell. I used this as my perilous was due and the Manuka Honey worked wonders clearing up my hormonal breakout on my chin (I get it without fail each month). 

To add to its wonderful-ness, it comes packaged in a recyclable aluminium tube and 100% biodegradable cardboard from sustainable forests.

Hosanna H20 Intensive Skin-Plumping Serum | £30 for 30ml | Find it here

Due to my drier skin type, it’s imperative I use a serum prior to a moisturiser or facial oil to ensure maximum skin hydration. Once my skin is cleansed and toned, I use the dropper to apply this to my fingers before I use a patting motion across my face and down my neck. The technique I use is a light slapping method – believe me it works. Upon first using the serum, the colour left me a little unsure. It is a similar colour to foundation and has quite a strong scent. The scent for me is pleasant, I can smell the Vinanza Grape and I think the mamaku black fern is what I can possibly smell most, as it’s a smell I’m not familiar with.  The grape extract helps protect and build skins resistance whilst the mamku black fern assists with cell renewal. After using this my skin feels noticeably plumper, and the fine lines near my mouth far less visible! I have experienced no reaction with this product either and it seems to agree with my sensitive skin type. 

Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream | £38 for 60ml| Find it here

Every evening before bed, the final step to my routine is to apply a heavy-duty face cream to ensure my skin is hydrating whilst I’m sleeping. As my final step, I like to apply this thick, luxurious cream to my face and down my neck. The formula does take some time to sink in to skin but not sticky and the results that follow are awesome. When I wake up he next morning my skin still feels soft and plumped. The smell is very fresh, with added ylang ylang and sandalwood it’s very pleasant. My skin doesn’t appear red after use like it can with some creams, infact it feels calm and simply nourishing. 
 I can see why this cream was The Green Beauty Bible Award winner! It’s by far the best night cream I have used and is similar to the Origina Avocado night mask. 

Next on my shopping list is the eye cream from Antipodes. We need to shout about this brand more, they give amazing results and their ethic is spot on.
