Hydrating My Summer Skin + GIVEAWAY

I’m not quite sure what’s happening this year but my face, skin and hair haven’t been handling this heat as well as it used to. The past couple of years, my skin’s gone through some drastic changes (postpartum effects in full swing) and I’ve had to try and keep up with them all. I think what’s surprised me the most is going from extremely oily skin the first year after I had Kai to now being in a situation where everything is dry – my hair, skin and face. So when Johnson’s sent me their new Fresh Hydration range, I was keen to give it a go. My face doesn’t react well to some products meant for dry skin as many of them end up making it look and feel greasy, rather than hydrated. And my issues with hydration usually come during the bitter winter months, so this was a welcome new product range. It also helped that they are some pretty looking products. Y’all know I’m a sucker for pink 😉

 

Fresh Hydration Water Gel Cleanser

This cleanser is infused with Rose Water – an ingredient thousands of women swear by for their skincare. It’s anti-inflammatory, hydrating and gentle. I love the way it feels like it’s refreshing my skin as I use it. It didn’t feel tight and dry – nor did it feel greasy. I’d love for this to come in a version that also exfoliates, as I’m so used to that kind of cleanse on my skin. I know not everyone likes to exfoliate, or don’t do it every day, so this is a good option for those in-between exfoliation days.

 

Day Cream SPF20 & Night Cream

The Day Cream is a light lotion that I followed up with after cleansing my face. I love that its SPF is 20, giving me a bit more protection from UV rays than my normal products do. The scent is light and floral with subtle hints of rose. I find this lotion bases my face nicely in preparation for my makeup. It managed to smooth my skin and leave it moisturised but not sticky. Its formula helps to preserve your skin barrier and also contains antioxidants that protects against extranl factors. I usually pride myself on my skincare routine but one thing I’m not great at, is using night cream. This range has one for those of you who are better at this step than I am. It’s a gel-cream formula that helps your skin regenerate overnight. I know it’s something that’ll help my skin even more so I’ll put it on my bedside table next to my wipes to make sure I don’t skip it.

 

Micellar Cleansing Jelly

The key to great skin? Making sure you clean your face before going to sleep. Sleep is when your skin regenerates, sheds old skin cells and a good night of it leaves you bright and glowing. Going to sleep with your makeup on inhibits your skin from doing these basic but important things for it to stay healthy. I know if I don’t remove my makeup – especially my mascara, I wake up feeling and looking haggard and not like I’ve gotten much rest. This jelly contains Micellar Water, which has been celebrated not only for cleaning skin but also for drawing out impurities and removing dirt – great for sensitive and acne prone skin. Just pump some drops on some cotton wool and wipe that dirt away. You don’t need to rinse it out when you’re done. You can also use it to clean your makeup brushes. With the jelly consistency and pump bottle, it’s easier to use without spilling.

 

Micellar Cleansing Wipes

Wipes are one of my staple skincare products. They’re so versatile, portable and I usually only need to use one to remove my simple, everyday makeup. I up it to two if I’ve had a full face on for a shoot or event. Like the Cleansing Jelly, the wipes also have Micellar water, making it easier for them to remove dirt and makeup – of which it removes 99%. Waterproof mascara and some matte lipsticks are usually the toughest products to remove from my skin and I found that it did it easily.

    It has Micellar Water which is great for drawing out dirt and impurities. My parched skin would thank me for this hydration boost. I’m definitely checking this product pit the next time I hit the stores. A big plus for me is the dispenser since it’s less messy to use and can be used even when in a hurry and not feeling particularly motivated to cleanse. Thanks for the great giveaway 🙂

    The greatest thing about the Micellar Jelly is that it can also be used to wash make up brushes because those contain a lot of dirt and if you don’t wash them they turn to make your face breakout as well no matter how well you take care of your face.
