Hi guys, it's been a while! But I hope that you all had a great start to your 2020 and are getting along just fine :-) Hopping on here to share my new favourite skincare items which have been keeping my skin plump, moisturised and glowing this winter!
A few months ago I stumbled upon this new platform called Scoon. I was immediately hooked on their clean skincare section, because they made all their products so easy to understand. You can search based on your skin type (Normal, Dehydrated, Pigmentation, etc.) or on the skincare benefits you're looking for (Anti-aging, Calming, Softening, etc.). But what I especially loved and haven't seen anywhere else yet, is that you can even search based on ethos! I love this because it truly shows that they support brands that are taking a stand to make a change. You can find products that are handmade, have minimal waste, are organic and/or recyclable, made in small batches and even vegan products.
Scoon reached out to me to ask if I could share five of my favourite products with you. As a beginner in the world of clean skincare, I have been using their platform for quite some time already to learn more, and so I was very excited and honoured when they contacted me for this collaboration!
Below are my five must-have items for this season 🧖🏻♀️
Swipe Clean Cleansing Oil
During the winter I sometimes get dry, rough patches on my cheeks. I asked my facialist why this was happening, and she pointed out that I was using a gel-cleanser. Apparently this was drying out my skin too much in the winter, so she suggested trying an oil- or cream-based cleanser. I found this oil-cleanser while browsing around the Scoon website and this has totally transformed the dryness and texture of my cheeks! I use a tiny bit in the morning and at the end of the day to melt off the dirt and makeup. Super easy to use, gets my skin nice & clean, doesn't dry it out and doesn't leave an oily residue behind.
Polishing Facial Exfoliant
My new favourite scrub! I usually like to use a scrub once a week, to exfoliate those dead skin cells. This is a pretty abrasive scrub, so you only need a tiny amount to scrub your whole face! It leaves my skin feeling and looking renewed and glowing! This is definitely a must have for me in the winter.
Radiant Glow Mask
This. Mask. Smells. Like. Heaven! As soon as I opened the pot, it smelled like chocolate cake dough, so good! This mask goes on like butter and feels amazing on the skin. The mask also contains little coconut granules that help to exfoliate the skin as you're applying it. Leave it on for about 5-10 minutes and then easily wash off with warm water. The mask becomes a little bit milky as you combine it with water, which leaves my skin feeling super super soft!
SOS Hydra Repair Intensive Serum
The name says it all. This is a must have for dry, winter skin. Before trying this out, my skin often felt very dry and dehydrated. So when I came across this serum, I just had to try it! Just one pump goes a long way and keeps my face glowing and hydrated throughout the day. The pump makes it super handy to use and the fact that you only need 1 pump is great so you can really get a lot of use out of it.
Hyaluronic Eye Complex
This little eye-roller helps to wake up my puffy eyes in the morning. The metal rollerball gives a cooling effect and the gel helps to reduce dark circles, wrinkles and puffiness. One of the key ingredients in the gel, Hyaluronic Acid, helps to gently hydrate the skin around the eyes while also increasing the production of collagen (= makes the skin look younger! ). I can't imagine my morning routine without this anymore. And p.s. it's also a great base under concealer!
These five products have completely improved the look & texture of my skin within two weeks! Besides that, I'm also extra happy to use these products, because they have been carefully selected by Scoon to fit their (and my own!) values in relation to clean, sustainable, skincare.
