I am half way through my natural skin care month and it has been amazing, I wish I had started this earlier! The most noticeable change has been with my pores. They actually look and feel smaller. My skin went from looking dry and dull to moist and glowing. It’s only been a few weeks and I’m sure it sounds over exaggerated but people have actually noticed the change, so I know it’s not just me

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had been feeling really unhappy with my skin and I knew I needed to try something new. I have a healthy balanced diet; I drink loads of water and get more than enough sleep so trying a natural based skincare regime was next on the list, to try beat this problem

My usual skincare regime pretty much consisted of any products that were on special at the supermarket, so there really was no consistency or thought in it at all. All the products I am using this month are products I have used and loved before, I just hadn’t used them exclusively with other natural based products. I couldn’t be happier with my choices, so here they are in all their natural beauty!

 I try 

I try to support New Zealand business as much as I can and the natural based, organic, super lush products that come out of the Skinfood door make it very hard not to!

There are three main products that I just have to share first, their mud maskcoconut oil and exfoliator. I have tried so many facemasks but what I love about this one is its rich, thick and creamy. Its dries fairly quickly but I like to leave it on for about 20 minutes. Once washed off my skin is beyond soft, I cant stop touching it!

Coconut oil is actually one of the reasons I wanted to go natural. As I previously mentioned, my mum uses coconut oil every night and swears by it. After cleansing my skin I massage a few drops of their coconut oil on my face and rub into my lips. I have always had really dry lips and I am finding the oil much more effective than lip balm. I then rub in the leftover oil from my hands into the cuticles of my nails.

The exfoliator is honestly the best exfoliator I have tried. I have two exfoliators sitting in my bathroom that I just don’t use because when I apply it to my face and start to circulate with my fingers, I can’t feel any exfoliation happening, as there are so few grains! The Skinfood exfoliator actually exfoliators the skin easily, I love it!


ABOUT 30 VS. 30
