NeuroSkinFeeds - The Micromilk

I have previously tried out the MicroOil from NeuroSkinFeeds but today wanted the share my thoughts on the MicroMilk.

It’s key ingredients are

• Aloe vera gel – hydrating; soothing and cooling; reduces inflammation and itchiness; known for its anti-bacterial and healing properties; easily absorbed. Contains vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids. Helps to hydrate the skin without any post- application greasy feeling. Locks moisture into the skin whilst leaving it smooth and soft

• Karite (shea) butter – rich in fatty acids and vitamins to soften skin. Anti-inflammatory and healing, it conditions, tones and soothes skin. Rich in vitamins A and E, it has anti- inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.

• Camelina sativa seed oil – a strong antioxidant due to high vitamin E content; acts as an anti-inflammatory, calming sensitised skin, whilst adding moisture; boosts the immune system; packed with omega-3 fatty acids; enhances skin barrier function- healthy barrier function is essential for survival, as it prevents bacteria from entering the skin; suitable for all skin conditions.

• Cannabis sativa seed oil + 1% CBD – intensively nourishes and regenerates sensitive and tired skin; reduces inflammation in the skin; calms skin and reduces redness; has antioxidant and regenerative qualities to help offset damage from the sun, pollution, and ageing; rich in vitamins A and E; deeply moisturises and improves skin structure; creates a barrier, helping skin retain its own moisture; relaxes skin and mind, ensuring nutrients are absorbed better.

There is a strong connection between what you put on your skin and your mood, this ensures that only good ingredients are used to help promote a better mood.

My thoughts

I have been using this regularly the last couple of weeks as my skin has been really dry due to the weather and having the heating on. It’s really helped with any dry patches I have and it also apples so nicely and smells nice that it really does put you in a better mood after using it!

The pump bottles makes it really easy to use and you don’t need much to really make a difference to your skin. It soaks in well and doesn’t leave you feeling sticky or greasy which is a bonus.

NeuroSkinFeeds products are vegan, 100% natural and cruelty-free and suitable for sensitive skin. I would recommend both of their products I have tried.

Skin Chemists – Pure Retinol 0.3% Biphase Serum

I had been wanting to try a retinol treatment for a while and came across this one from Skin Chemists and as I have tried a few bits from them before and always been impressed I decided to give it a go.

Skin Chemists – Pure Retinol 0.3% Biphase Serum

£39.90

“Daily Biphase serum instantly replenishes moisture and revives skin’s radiance with the help of its powerful active Retinol. This special form of vitamin A has been proven to minimize fine lines, improve pigment problems, revitalize skin and make its overall appearance fresher and more youthful. The lightweight serum effortlessly melts into the skin leaving a velvety-soft finish, with a quick-absorbing formula created combining the freshness of water with the nourishing effects of Retinol.

Why do I need this product?

• Prevents wrinkles and smoothes existing fine lines
• Brightens dull skin by exfoliating at a cellular level
• Fades dark age spots, sun damage & hyperpigmentation

What are the key benefits?

• Retinol can reduce the appearance of ageing with impressive results
• Helps to defy signs of ageing – including softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and uneven tone
• A powerful form of Vitamin A, Retinol encourages cell turnover, revealing healthier, softer skin while also tackling blemishes and dark spots” – skinchemists.com

I have been using this now for a couple of weeks along with a brightening face wash and moisturiser to really try and tackle acne scars and also to try and stop my skin ageing. Retinol, when used correctly can be amazing for your skin. It will tackle ageing as well and smoothing out your skin and helping with any scars or pigmentation.

I have really noticed a difference whilst using this and not only does my face feel softer, it also looks a lot softer and brighter.

Using organic cotton

Organic beauty week starts next week (15th-21st May) so to recognise this I wanted to share with you my favourite organic cotton wool balls/pads and buds.

organyc

I really enjoy using this range as they are kind to your skin and soft to use. You can find more about the range here.

The cotton pads felt really nice when taking off eye make up, as often my eyes get irritated as they are very sensitive. 

The cotton buds weren’t too fluffy which is good if you use them to clean out your ears as I often worry with the fluffy ones that the end my end up coming off and getting stuck in your ear (this actually happened to someone I know!)

The cotton balls were again, very gentle and soft to use. I think it is worth paying a bit extra and getting this range.

Biotin – Does it really give you healthier hair, skin and nails?!

I have recently been taking these biotin tablets from Tranforme to try and improve my hair skin and nails. Due to over bleaching and dying my hair, my hair was in quite a bad condition, I am constantly cutting off the split ends, meaning my hair really struggles to grow. I have also been taken off my acne medication by the doctor as I was taking it for so long, my body became unresponsive to it. I thought now was a good time to start trying a supplement to see if it would make a difference.

I was going to take a before and after picture of my hair, but can you really see in pictures if the condition has improved? Considering I have changed my hair colour twice in the past month and also had an undercut done I wasn’t too sure if the picture would really show progress.

I have been taking these for 4 weeks now and my skin has started to clear up, it also feels a lot softer and my break outs aren’t nearly as bad. My nails seem to be growing longer and stronger, which is great as I used to bite them so I have only just started trying to grow them and take care of my nails. My hair is starting to feel softer, I can tell by my roots how much it is growing and it just feels a lot more manageable and looks a lot healthier.

I am really impressed that by taking these daily, it can make such a difference to my hair, skin and nails.
