Blogmas Countdown: 2 Facial Treats

At this time of year, we tend to neglect our skin, and put it through a lot. What with the late nights, partying and the heat. So here are two little facial routines I like to do to re-vamp my skin, and keep it looking fresh for the big day.

Routine One - Hydration


I start by mixing together the Emma Haridie Cleansing Balm and the exfoliating seeds it comes with. I massage this all over my face, then leave it on for five minutes. I then massage the remaning seeds in and wash it off with a hot cloth. I then slather my face in the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask and go to sleep. When I wake up my skin is fresher and healthier and ready to go.

Routine Two - Exfoliation


I start by making sure my face is clean and fresh by using the Emma Hardie cleansing blam, then when my face is dry I slather on a layer of the REN Resurfacing AHA Concentrate. When that has sunk in I love to slap on some Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins moisturiser. When  I wake up in the morning it's like having a new face.

What are your facial treats?

  7. The exfoliation products sound like a real treat for your skin! I really want to try Ren products but they are soooo pricey. Loving the skin care posts that you do - you really make me want to venture a bit further into the skin care world :p
