One of the things that I really love about being a judge for the incredible Beauty Shortlist Awards is discovering new brands as well as getting to know brands that I’ve seen or heard of but never tried. This is because BSL is known and celebrated for its recognition and support of niche brands.
As a beauty addict and founder of the Wow Beauty E Zine I always have an eye out for something new and innovative or something not necessarily new but simple and effective.
Over the years there have been numerous products that I’ve judged and loved, so I thought I’d give you a peek at just some of the ones that I enjoy using.
Sens8ate Flawless CBD Miracle Facial Oil
This oil is seriously fat! When I say fat, I mean it’s lush and leaves your skin feeling velvety and plumped up. A combination of essential fatty acid rich oils including hemp, marula, flaxseed and apricot deeply nourishes, without blocking the pores. It works really well for all skin types, including sensitive. This is perfect in the daytime over the top of my moisturiser or at night.
With so many skincare products to choose from all promising the world, I find it so refreshing to discover a brand focused on simplicity and efficacy. This dynamic duo of hydration and serum are packed with ingredients native to Scandinavia like Norwegian Sea kelp, Swedish oat and arctic blackcurrant. Love that more brands are launching harnessing the power of native powerhouse ingredients. Together, these offer vitamin rich hydration, nourishment & protection.
It’s not easy to find a daily moisturiser that contains a high SPF protection level that you actually enjoy using. This one is just that: an effective non greasy moisturiser rich in vitamin e that soothes, heals & moisturises with the added benefit of SPF 50 that works for all skin tones.
I always appreciate a good facial mist especially when it delivers more than just a short lived moisture boost. This is a protective facial mist, hydrates and brightens and protects against indoor and outdoor pollution. Throughout the day. It utilises ingredients like coenzyme, Q 10 and vitamin C and B3, plus of course, hyaluronic acid and essential oils of neroli and basil to help at the relaxation element.
This natural and organic has a gentle scent of cider vinegar. Love how It smooths the surface of your skin and exfoliates pores of excess sebum and impurities, this concentrated formula is a must-have for your skincare routine. Leaves your skin feeling smooth and clean. Ingredients include a natural blend of AHA’s & BHA’s – namely Malic, Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic and Citric acids.
Elemental Herbology Perfect Balance Multi Acid Pads
These natural acid treatment pads contain a powerful blend of 5% glycolic acid and 5% fruit acids along with aloe Vera to help to keep pores clear, skin exfoliated and smooth! These toner pads feel fresh and soothing on the skin with no irritation.
These eye mask deliver super hydration and boost under eye radiance in just 20 minutes! Magic blend of hyaluronic acid, sea kelp & minerals that transforms the eye area making you look rested, and fine lines softened. Perfect in the morning after a poor night’s sleep or before going out.
