As a lady of a certain age…OK, I turned 45 this year, I thought it was about time that I took matters of skincare into hand. Unsure of what I need for my type of skin, which tends to be normal with an oily T Zone, I put a call out for help!
For the past month (and coming couple of months) I have and will be reviewing the following items.
Supplements are something I have taken for numerous things in the past. I was sent these Pure Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules from Lion Heart by Bare Biology. Beauty experts believe getting the right amount of essential fatty acids, particularly Omega 3s found in fish oil, in your diet could be the secret weapon in your anti ageing arsenal.

I love a good facial scrub but I always feel they are too harsh for my face. I was a little hesitant when I first tried Priori as it is a 2xfoliant peel and scrub. I need not have worried though as it is my new go to in the bathroom when I start my cleansing routine. In true adaptive skin care form, the active ingredients exfoliate and renew the skin whilst hydrating and boosting the hyaluronic response. My skin feels so much smoother and cleaner after using this peel and scrub. RRP: £52.00 from Priori Skincare

The Essentials line from Vitage are go to products that suit all skin type and can be used by the majority. They are considered essential products as they prep and balance the skin to receive further treatments. I have found they work well on my skin as i have combination so some skincare products are usually either too oily or too drying. These seem to sink into my skin and leave me feeling hydrated and soft. Prices start from £12.00 from Vitage
