Zelens Skincare

Described as being a brand at the cutting edge of high-performance, age-defying skin care, Zelens products are said to combine breakthrough active biotechnology ingredients with a unique blend of plant-derived molecules, to deliver proven, visible results. The brand is the brainchild of expert Dr. Marko Lens who is a leading plastic surgeon and internationally renowned authority in the field of skin ageing and skin cancer. So it makes for a fascinating insight to a brand I have been getting to know over the past few months.
Zelens Skincare
Zelens state that each product is rigorously trialled and tested, "until the exact balance and synergistic action of ingredients is established to trigger the cellular processes responsible for regeneration and repair. Hailed as a ‘new dimension in skin perfection’, each jar is brimming with potent botanical extracts… and completely free from false promises", so quite the bold claim, but an exciting one.

The three products I have been getting to know is the Shiso Balm, Tea Shot and the Provitamin D3 Mist and each one fits easily into an existing skincare routine or you can use them to create a routine that is easy to follow, all depending on your skincare needs.

Starting with the Zelens Shiso Balm Radiance Cleanser (£50) . Described as being a moisturising liquid cleansing balm formulated to gently, yet thoroughly, cleanse the skin and remove make-up.
Zelens Skincare
Enriched with Shiso (Japanese mint) which lends antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Nourishing olive oil helps to moisturise and soften so the skin appears smooth, soothed and luminous post-rinse. Shiso Oil which has a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids and its job is to replenish moisture, reinforce the skin’s natural barrier and repair, heal and soothe. Olive Oil which is a good antioxidant and also rich in omega-9, Glycerin which is a humectant, a substance that attracts moisture from the environment and increases the amount of water in the surface layers of the skin and Yeast which is rich in amino acids, essential minerals, beta-glucan and vitamins. Plus a few more ingredients.

On the skin, this daily cleanser transforms into a light milk when it comes into contact  with water to purify the skin without stripping it of its natural moisture and it does an excellent job at removing makeup and other detritus in its way to leave the skin feeling soft and smooth to the touch. 

The second product is Tea Shot Urban Defence Serum (£90) and it is absolutely delightful to use.
Zelens Skincare
Described as being a highly concentrated defence serum, it is made up of a proprietary blend of five different types of teas - hence the name it has been given - green tea, matcha green tea, white tea, black tea and fermented black tea ad breaking them down, this is why they are so important:
  • Green tea: Rich in polyphenols, this tea has a strong antioxidant, photoprotective, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Green tea inhibits the breakdown of collagen and induces significant DNA repair. It also has anti-ageing properties as it inhibits the breakdown of collagen.
  • Matcha green tea: Rich in polyphenols, theanine and caffeine, matcha tea shows excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Helps protect the skin from oxidative stress and premature skin ageing caused by free radicals. Interestingly, it is Matcha which gives Tea Shot Urban Defence Serum its beautiful green colour.
  • White tea: Has excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, astringent and skin-soothing properties. It also has an energising and stimulating effect.
  • Black tea: Rich in polyphenols and tannins, black tea shows antioxidant, soothing, conditioning, tonic and firming properties.
  • Kombucha: Rich in probiotics, flavonoids and other polyphenols. It helps restore volume through lipofilling activity, decreases skin roughness and improves overall skin quality by enhancing smoothness and radiance.
This moisturising serum is designed to help protect the skin from daily environmental pollution and stressors and combat visible signs of premature skin ageing caused by free radicals, the end result being skin feels protected and looks healthy and youthful with this brightening serum. On the skin, this silky smooth green serum is one that should be used daily, after cleansing and is perfect for use morning and evening applied to the face, neck and décolleté.

Then finally we have the Provitamin D3 Fortifying Mist (£52) and this is such a beautiful product, I wish I didn't love it as much as I do.
Zelens Skincare
Described as being an ultra-fine facial mist that has been formulated to give dry skin a vitality boost throughout the day. This hydrating face mist not only reinforces skin barrier function but also helps to protect it from environmental aggressors and comforts the skin while supporting its natural recovery capacity.

Enriched with ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Yeast, Provitamin D3 and Glycerin, you will also find the likes of Beetroot which is rich in betaine, this moisturising active ingredient potentiates the effect of provitamin D3 Chicory which restores the functions of the vitamin D receptor, reinforces skin barrier and enhances skin’s natural recovery capacity. Chicory extract also supports the balance of the skin microbiome and also worthy of a mention is Almond Esters which improve skin moisture, skin smoothness and elasticity, while supporting skin barrier repairing.

As this is a mist you can use it daily and as many times as you feel you need to do so, in my case every few hours as I sit in the front of the laptop for most of the day.

This has been an amazing introduction for to Zelens skincare and each product definitely has its wow factor, leaving the issue of the need to try everything the brand has to offer1

Be+Radiance Healthy Skin Makeup

BE+RADIANCE is described as being the first hybrid makeup brand that offers healthy products for all skin tones with clean formulas, skin food ingredients and probiotics to give that skin-friendly makeup. I was lucky enough to be sent a few products from the brands range to try and I’m impressed with what I’ve used.
Be+Radiance Healthy Skin Makeup
The word Microbiome is one everyone will have come across in the world of beauty and Be+Radiance also claims to the the first Microbiome Friendly Makeup. So what is meant by the Microbiome? The skin Microbiome is made of microorganisms that live on the skin, this might sound a bit ewww but actually they have and play an important impact on skin health and beauty.

The first of the five products is the Cucumber Water Mattifying Foundation (£26)and it is just as delightful as it sounds.
Be+Radiance Healthy Skin Makeup
Described as being a foundation that lets your skin breathe and preserves the skin's balance for healthy skin under luminous and natural makeup. An innovative cucumber water-based liquid foundation, not only is it Silicone free, Mineral Oil Free and Fragrance free plus it is also made from 85% natural ingredients. Giving a light to medium coverage, what I’ve liked about this foundation is not greasy or tacky but feels really light on the skin.

Up next is the Velvet Touch Primer, Natural and Breathable (£22), described as being especially designed to sublime the skin before makeup it helps to refine and smooth the skin naturally for an immediate blur effect.
Be+Radiance Healthy Skin Makeup
I adore the texture of this primer, not only does it melt instantly on contact with the skin, but the texture turns slightly to a powder and sits so wonderful without feeling greasy or slimy, but again it is silicone free and uses antioxidant pomegranate extract to help moisturise.

Skincare, my favourite thing to discuss if you hadn’t guessed brings me to the third product and that is the Multi-Purpose Face Oil (£34).
Be+Radiance Healthy Skin Makeup
This Face Oil can be used as a skincare, you can mix it with your foundation and it can also be used as a makeup remover if you emulsify it with water. It features just seven ingredients which are:
  • Rape Seed Oil Extract: This is light, ultra-penetrating and non-greasy emollient, plus it is rich in omega 3, it is particularly effective in maintaining skin elasticity.
  • Sunflower oil: Packed with Omega 6, Omega 9 and vitamin E, it is used for its nourishing and protective properties.
  • Desert Date Oil: Rich in Omega 6, it is known for its antioxidant, regenerating and repairing properties for the skin and hair.
  • Gentle Emulsifier: Of plant origin, it is incorporated into the formula to allow for gentle makeup removal.
  • Lactobacillus Rhamnosus: Active biotics that positively cultivate bacterial flora to protect and rebalance the skin microbiome.
  • Protium Resin: This plant resin has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties.
  • Vitamin E: Powerful natural antioxidant.
What I really like about this oil is that it is not greasy when applied to the skin, it definitely has that oil like texture, but without the slime.  I have used this as a makeup remover and it actually does a really good job at removing almost everything - except waterproof mascara that never wants to budge.  I am however, yet to mix it with my foundation because I don't wear it in the summer.

The final two products are the ones you might have seen mentioned the most on your social media, the BE+RADIANCE SET+GLOW Probiotic Powder+Highlighter and the BE+RADIANCE COLOR+GLOW Probiotic Blush+Highlighter Blush (£29 each)
Be+Radiance Healthy Skin Makeup
Starting with the BE+RADIANCE SET+GLOW Probiotic Powder+Highlighter (£29) which is available in 17 different options, which I find quite impressive.

I have shade 20 and absolutely love it.  It is, as you might expect by now both Talc free and silicone free and it contains some lovely ingredients which includes:
  • Organic Moringa Oil: Has moisturizing, emollient and softening properties. It promotes the renewal of skin cells, and improves the protective and barrier function of the skin.
  • Organic Arrow Root Powder: Mattifies the skin
  • Organic Jojoba Oil: Protects against dehydration and regulates the secretion of sebum. It effectively fights against the signs of skin ageing.
  • Organic Sunflower Oil: Nourishes and softens the skin
  • Organic Shea Butter: Promotes skin regeneration, hydrates and nourishes deeply.
Designed to both mattifying and illuminate, it is a beautiful product with an amazing shade range.

Then with the BE+RADIANCE COLOR+GLOW Probiotic Blush+Highlighter Blush (£29) there is a shade range of six different options. I have shade range 02 which gives a coral peach blush and a darker highlighter which is almost a bronze shade.

Again, this is Talc free and silicone free and it contains some lovely ingredients which includes:
  • Active Lactobacillus Rhamnosus
  • Organic moringa oil: Has moisturizing, emollient and softening properties. It promotes the renewal of skin cells, and improves the protective and barrier function of the skin.
  • Organic Arrow Root Powder: Mattifies the skin
  • Organic Jojoba Oil: Protects against dehydration and regulates the secretion of sebum. It effectively fights against the signs of skin ageing.
  • Organic Sunflower Oil: Nourishes and softens the skin
  • Organic Shea Butter: Promotes skin regeneration, hydrates and nourishes deeply.
Again, a really beautiful pigmented product which for me is a case of less is more with my natural British skin tone.  

Be+Radiance is a brand that is made with 85% to 100% natural ingredients, it is made in France and is both Vegan and Cruelty Free.  Available online via both Be+Radiance and Feelunique.

Introducing This Is Silk

This Is Silk is a brand I have recently been introduced too and from the two products I have - I am obsessed! Founded in 2017 by Sonal Keay who had used Silk to manage her own skin condition and help with the condition of her hair. 
Introducing This Is Silk
I am already a huge fan of silk pillowcases and eye masks and have in the past time silk beauty products, but these two in about to share are something else. It’s no secret that I am a fan of cleansing, there is something about it as a ritual in an evening that helps to leave the day behind, help to relax and unwind and settle down for the evening, so I couldn’t wait to try one of these products!

This Is Silk Cream Cleanser, which happens to be accompanied by a cloth (£39.99) and it is just beautiful to use.
Introducing This Is Silk
Developed by skincare scientists and using scientifically proven ingredients, this cleanser is described as being oil rich cream cleanser which uses Silk Peptides, Probiotics and Panthenol (Vitamin B5) which work to deeply cleanse skin whilst leaving it nourished and hydrated and seriously soft - thus ticking a whole lot of boxes for me and if I was to describe this cleanser I would tell you it feels like Silk on the skin.

Within this product, the Silk peptides have been scientifically proven to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, Improve skin elasticity and 'bounce', Reduce hyperpigmentation and fight blemishes, Improve the barrier function of skin and Boost skin's natural collagen levels. If that’s not all, whilst this cleanser does cleanse and work to strengthen the skin barrier, it also uses the natural fragrances of Rose, Jasmine and Neroli which have known properties to help soothe and relax the senses.

Suitable for all skin types, this cleanser works it’s magic to remove pretty much everything in its path, however I do use an eye makeup remover to ensure all traces of mascara have gone from my eyes. After using this cleanser my skin feels soft and smooth to the touch, it doesn’t strip the skin of any moisture and there is absolutely nothing I dislike.

Having double cleansed in an evening, I have been reaching for the This Is Silk Radiance Renewed' Silk Overnight Oil with Silk, Bakuchiol & Rosehip (£39.99).
Introducing This Is Silk
I have used an oil within my skincare routine for a good few years now and despite having oily combination skin, I often shied away from oils thinking they would make my shine worse, but in fact it is quite the opposite.

This oil took three years to develop and it’s job is to repair and renew skin whilst you sleep. To do this, it features three of the most potent, superstar ingredients, each famed for their anti-ageing and skin-renewing qualities
  • Silk Peptides - these have been scientifically proven to:Reduce the appearance of fine lines, Improve skin elasticity and 'bounce', reduce hyperpigmentation and fight blemishes as well as to improve the barrier function of skin
  • Bakuchiol - this little gem has been proven to be as effective as Retinol and has been proven to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve the tone and elasticity of skin, reduce blemishes and inflammation caused by acne and soothe stressed skin
  • Rosehip seed and Fruit Oil - Used in a lot of oil, it helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, brightens dull or blemished skin tone, helps with reducing pigmentation and scarring caused by acne and it is also incredibly hydrating and soothing, especially for dry skin
  • Rose, Jasmin and Neroli - Three of my absolute favourite oils and all of which are blended into this oil to help lift your mood and to help relaxation before sleep.
What I have been loving about this oil is that it isn't greasy or tacky on the skin. Since having Covid at the end of 2021, my skin has been really dry and whilst I am taking a host of supplements to try and help, I have found  oils have really become my skins best friend.

Without question, these two products make quite the duo and for anyone wanting to change their cleanser to something really luxurious, but without that hefty price tag, then the This Is Silk Cream Cleanser is definitely the one for that!

TOYL The Ultimate Colour Correct Box

This months TOYL box is going to take some beating, I’m just putting it out there before I share the contents of this box. Called The Ultimate Colour Correct Box, it is a great little Easter offering.
Inside the box you will find four products and two treats and with brands such as Oskia, Stila and Indeed Labs all in one box.
As we get older there is no question that our skin tone gets more uneven. I’ve had mine properly looked at and the redness in my cheeks was terrible. Couple that with the under eye dark circles and it wasn’t a great base to move into Spring with which is why a colour correct step is just so important and this month, we have the ultimate!
So if redness, pigmentation, dark circles, dull skin or age spots are bothering you, then this is the box you need and here is what you will find:

Quite the iconic Stila product, it features an innovative triple-swirled helix serum which has been designed to instantly colour correct, brighten, primes and nourish the skin which in turns, helps to improve tone, even out your complexion and smooth lines and wrinkles!
TOYL The Ultimate Colour Correct Box
It contains 3 colour-correcting pigments to even out complexion:
  • Green tone instantly neutralises redness and conceals blemishes
  • Lavender tone counteracts sallow undertones for a vibrant, energised look
  • Peach tone brightens, illuminates and helps diminish the appearance of sun spots
Supercharged with Stila's proprietary Youth Revival Bio-Available Mineral Complex™ to help hydrate, control oil, and diminish the appearance of pores and fine lines.  I have never tried this until recently and I don't know why because I've been wearing it on its own for the past few days and love how it leaves my skin looking.  Once I have tried it for a lot longer, I will share some further thoughts.

IndeedLabs has been described by many as being one of the most feted beauty disruptors in recent years, creating some incredible products at really affordable prices. In this month's TOYL Box, the No Acid pads are designed to brighten the appearance of your complexion before applying serum.
TOYL The Ultimate Colour Correct Box
Enriched with active Probiotics, alongside the likes of Japanese Cedar Buds and Yarrow, allow the formula to cleanse and buff away dead skin, while at the same time being nourishing and replenishing.

Remember how in February we talked about how Vitamin C needs to be ‘fresh” and not in contact with air? We’ll that’s why Oskia have made it in these capsules, so when you open to use it, it is as fresh as possible. It also smells of oranges too! 
TOYL The Ultimate Colour Correct Box
These are a morning serum for me, so use after cleansing and the Indeed Lab Pad – then you are optimally primed for brighter skin!

Then finally we have another product from Oskia with the Isotonic Hydra-Serum (30ml rrp £64).  Described as being one of the best serums to retain moisture in your skin and even though it is incredibly lightweight on the skin, it features Oskia's Biomimetic Hydra-Complex of 16 synergistic actives to boost, protect and balance hydration for long-term comfort and a dewy complexion. You will also find encapsulated glacier water, glycerin, hyaluronic acid and polyglutamic acid as well as pro-vitamin B5 and oat ceramides which work to support your skin's mantle and barrier function.  
TOYL The Ultimate Colour Correct Box
Putting together these incredible ingredients, you have a serum which works to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, ease the signs of dry, dehydrated skin and encourage beautifully plump, hydrated skin.

As mentioned there is two treats within this box and if you follow my Instagram stories, you will have seen there was an Lindt Bunny which I have eaten and then there is the Dr Seaweeds Weed and Wonderful Seaweed Iodine Supplement (£12.95). 
TOYL The Ultimate Colour Correct Box
These capsules are described as being an easy way to ensure that you're getting enough iodine. Perfect for supplementing diets that are low in fish or dairy, such as vegan diets, these capsules contain seaweed sourced from the Scottish Outer Hebrides, where it is dried, milled and put into one-a-day capsules for a convenient and easy way to benefit from its pure sea goodness. 

Each month the box, which has a new price of £39.99, will feature both full-sized and luxury travel sized items, if ever there is a sachet, that is not counted towards to total cost of the products inside, it is just an extra treat. This box is worth £122.00 and is on offer for just £39.99 inc FREE P&P but if you use the code BQUK, you will get £5 off your first box!

Liz Earle Pro-Biotic Balancing Trio + 30% off

The joy of absolutely loving everything there is to know about skincare, means I get to try some incredible products from some amazing brands. The latest edition to my collection came from Liz Earle with the new Pro-Biotic Balancing Trio. As a brand I remember being introduced too when my Nan talked about this polish stuff for your face that wasn’t a cold cream and of course we have all heard of that product and have probably tried the Cleanse and Polish by now!
Liz Earle Pro-Biotic Balancing Trio + 30% off
The Pro-Biotic Balancing Trio is a range of products that works on and for all skin types and there is only three products within the range and I am sharing them all with you today. Probiotcs is possibly a term you are more familiar with when it comes to gut health rather than skincare and this is where Liz Earle has excelled with this range and made it simple. I think from time to time we are all guilty of over doing the skincare and reeking havoc, it is definitely something I have been guilty of and have held my hands up to in the past. If we upset the skin, it reacts, much like your gut if you eat too many rich foods, to combat that, Liz Earle uses a blend of pre, pro and postbiotics and other actives to strengthen the skin barrier, nourish, calm and really get your skin back on track. Like the gut. the skin has its own microbiome and is in fact home to millions of bacteria that is in charge of keeping your skin both healthy and safe. 

We all know that lifestyle factors such as stress, lack of sleep and environmental pollutants can disrupt your balance of microflora and your skin’s protective barrier can be compromised, causing skin problems such as sensitivity, dryness, excess oil and blemishes.‌ So, Probiotics have been found to be of benefit to the skin's barrier and microbiome, much like in the gut, keeping inflammation down along with reducing skin sensitivity, regulating oil production and keeping the skin hydrated.  Also, the ideal time to be adding these three products to your basket to start using them!

Made up of a milk cleanser, day cream and night cream, I mentioned that Liz Earle had kept this collection simple. Better still, there is four main active ingredients to shout about:
  • Fermented Oats - With post and probiotic properties to soothe the skin.
  • Lunaria Oil - Nourishes and provides long-lasting hydration.
  • Jojoba Oil - One of the skin's most naturally compatible oils, promoting a healthy-looking glow.
  • Chicory - Sustainably grown on an organic farm in France, Chicory has skin-soothing properties.
Added to that, this range uses only natural ingredients and you will find no synthetic fragrances and if you are not a fan of scented skincare, then this range has a subtle oat scent to it, which to me just smells clean.

The first product within this range is the Pro-Biotic Balancing Milk Cleanser and anyone who reads my blog will know that I am a huge fan of cleansing. It is my favourite skincare step in a morning and my absolute favourite in an evening when I can just remove the remnants of the day and relax.  This cleanser is designed to protect and strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier for a visibly healthier-looking skin. On the skin, this ultra-gentle milky cleanser works to effectively cleanse without stripping the skin and leaving it feeling calmer, clearer and healthier.
Liz Earle Pro-Biotic Balancing Trio + 30% off
Using its unique blend of ingredients, this creamy cleanser not only melts away impurities, SPF, pollution but it also removes any trace of make up and as it does all of that, it leaves your skin nourished, soothed and with a healthy-looking glow. Those ingredients which make up that unique blend are those I mentioned above - chicory, lunaria oil, jojoba oil and oat extract.

This cleanser is a 100ml in size and would normally be priced at £18 but it is currently on offer and priced at just £12.60 HERE.

The second product is the Pro-Biotic Balancing Day Cream and what I really like about this cream is how lightweight it is. For anyone who doesn't like a thick gloopy cream, then this one is the one you need to try because it packs a punch in terms of delivering on hydration and moisture.
Liz Earle Pro-Biotic Balancing Trio + 30% off
With its fragrance free formula, this light cream is designed to not only keep your skin hydrated, but to also again strengthen and protect the skin’s moisture barrier, so even if you have the dry and sensitive of skin, this cream will balance, soothe and comfort. For me, this was a delightful cream to use, usually in a morning I am always running late, I have my routine in my head, which never goes to plan, but the steps I am never going to miss completing is my skincare.  Given that this is a light cream, it does most of the hard work for you in terms of absorbing with minimal contact to massage it in.

This is usually priced at £32 (50ml) but you can get your hands on it for just £22.40 RIGHT HERE for a limited time.

The third and final product of the range is the Pro-Biotic Balancing Night Cream and it is to all intents and purposes a thicker and more luxurious feeling texture than the day cream, which if you loved, you will also adore this. The Pro-Biotic Balancing Night Cream, does, as with the rest of the range, also work to strengthen the moisture barrier to dramatically improve the look of dry, sensitive skin.
Liz Earle Pro-Biotic Balancing Trio + 30% off
It is a gentle cream and whilst it has this wonderful velvety texture, it isn't so thick that it leaves your skin feeling greasy, if anything, my skin just drinks it up and i'm unsure whether or not to add more. This cream is said to nurture skin which is stressed whilst you sleep, giving your body and skin time to recover from the days stresses.  Once again, the inclusion of chicory, lunaria oil, jojoba oil and oat extract alongside the hard-working pre and post biotics appear within this cream.

The night cream is usually priced at £32 but you can get your hands on it for £22.40 RIGHT HERE (for a limited time).

As you can see, this is not a range that will shout from the rooftops about how magical it is, because it doesn't need too, it knows it works, it is back by science and has the case studies to prove that.
Liz Earle Pro-Biotic Balancing Trio + 30% off
For me, the stand out point of this entire range is that they not only create a simple routine to follow, but even if you did decide not to use all three, each step would fit into an existing routine without any issue.  For me, I like my serums and double cleansing, so they have fit really well into my more intensive routine.

Whilst there is still 30% off this range, it makes it even more affordable than it would be without the discount and it is worth trying for yourself to see the difference it does make to your skin.

Antipodes Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream

The newest launch from Antipodes, a brand whom I have featured a lot of over the past few years, is their sleep-in night cream, Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream.
As a brand, Antipodes have some amazing products, such as Aura Manuka Honey Mask which, if you haven’t tried, then you most definitely should. They’re up there with some of my absolute favourite products I’ve ever tried.

The Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream is formulated with certified vegan ingredients from New Zealand nature and the power of probiotics and is said to deliver a lifeline to any skin type by boosting moisture levels and strengthening the skin’s barrier thus optimising skin recovery overnight.

On the skin, this cream is really lightweight, almost cloud like and with its lilac hue it absorbs quickly into the skin and it’s an absolute dream to use. 
Using the power of Kalibiome AGE Probiotic, which is described as being a high-performing, non-live ‘good’ bacteria and in clinical trials, this Probiotic was found to not only reduce the effects of photo-ageing in the skin, reduce wrinkle depth and redness but it also enhanced elasticity and increased hydration by stimulating the production of hyaluronic acid in skin cells. There is also the inclusion of plant-based Hyaluronic Acid and native New Zealand Mamaku Black Fern which work to deliver a lifeline to stressed skin’s depleted moisture levels for plump, bouncy and dewy skin.

For me, I was intrigued to see how it dealt with some redness, brought about by using a facemask which featured clay and still my skin hates it, so it was red and quite angry. Applying this cream, there was an instantly soothing feeling, the kind you get when you apply a cold towel to your skin after a day in the sun. As it is a night cream, I slathered it onto my skin and the following morning, the redness was still present, but much less angry and easy to cover with a tinted moisturiser - one day I will learn not to use a facemask which has clay as a main ingredient! 

There is nothing I dislike about the Antipodes Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream. For me, it does pretty much everything it claims to do, it feels delightful on the skin, it is soothing, it is lightweight, it isn’t sticky or tacky and it is on sale with Lookfantastic* and Antipodes* and it is priced at £45 for 60ml.

This nourishing formula is enriched with Hawaiian-inspired botanicals such as coconut and kukui nut which gives you long-lasting, lightweight moisturisation.

The final item in the box comes from Mallows Beauty, a brand I have only ever come across in beauty boxes in recent months, within this box we have the Pink Clay Face Mask.

Roccabox Go Girl Edition

It’s 2021 and Roccabox have decided that the theme “Go Girl” is perfect for taking you into a New Year being the very best version of yourself. I think we can all agree that 2020 was not a year any of us ever envisaged and it was especially hard, more so than anyone could or would have anticipated. 
Roccabox Go Girl Edition
Featuring five products, of which four of them are full size, this edit is packed full of brands and their offerings which will invigorate your body, repair your skin, elevate your routine and nourish your soul.

The Hero Product in this box comes from Doctors Formula with the Probiotic Overnight Repairing Serum (£89). Described as being a hydrating formula that works alongside the skin’s natural night-time processes. 
Roccabox Go Girl Edition
With Probiotics and Cactus extract providing gentle exfoliation which removes impurities and dead skin cells which in turn smooth and brighten skin. It also works to deliver intense hydration too and the treatment reveals a renewed, revitalised and glowing complexion.

The second product comes from Shea Bliss, a brand which I’ve never come across until now. The product is the Cherry Bomb Body Butter.
Roccabox Go Girl Edition
This body butter is hand made using 100% unrefined Shea Butter and with additional Essential oil and Vitamin E which work to give your skin that moisturised feeling all day long. This Body Butter smells exactly as you expect it too, if you are familiar with Bassetts Cherry Drop sweets - that is the scent.

The third product comes from Mudmasky with the Hair Mask, Scalp Treatment and Miracle Shampoo, a product I’ve used many times and really like.
Roccabox Go Girl Edition
This 3-in-1 products is formulated with Moroccan argan oil, Moroccan mud and flowers which come together to repair, hydrate and strengthen your hair in three ways - Firstly it moisturises the skin on your scalp, helping to control dandruff and relieve any itchiness. It also repairs and strengthens your hair, mending any already-existing damage and shielding your tresses from future harm and finally, it also cleans your hair, washing away excess oils, dirt and impurities.

The fourth product from this box is the Skimono Total Conditioning + Foot Mask and it is quite the product.
Roccabox Go Girl Edition
Described as being an intensive treatment specifically designed for the feet, this sock-like foot mask is made from naturally-derived bio-cellulose, with a three-dimensional matrix structure that has been saturated in a unique serum to maximise absorption capacity. Having now used my foot mask, it is really hydrating on the skin and it uses Shea Butter and Olive Oil which together, not only moisturise but also help to soften hard skin and smooth away cracks. There is also the inclusion of both Tea Tree and Chamomile which are said to deliver an anti-bacterial action with an instant cooling sensation to refresh and revive aching soles.

The final item comes from Oh K! With the SOS Soothing Face Lotion. Described as being the ideal companion for skin that’s uneven or prone to blemishes, the Oh K! SOS Soothing Facial Balm works to keep your complexion looking smoother for longer. 
Roccabox Go Girl Edition
With its silky, light texture, the cream glides over skin, repairing your moisture barrier for long-lasting hydration that never feels greasy. Zinc, White Tea and Tea Tree tone down shine and soothe skin for all-over comfort and a flawless look.

I have once again, really enjoyed this months Roccabox, I really like the theme and it is always nice to try some new products that you are not at all familiar with, in this case, everything within the box.

Roccabox is a subscription service and there are further subscription offers available to choose from with boxes starting at just £10 per month plus P&P.
