Creating a good skincare routine and using products that are trailer towards your skin concerns is so important. Over the last year I have been trying out different skincare products and getting to know which one really work for my skin concerns. I try and use the same skincare products, for at least a couple of month, so I can really see if I am getting the desired results.
With autumn well and truly here and Winter definitely on it’s way my skincare routine has been switched up to incorporate a few products that are aimed towards hydration. I have made a few skincare purchases recently, some of which are from the Nordic brand Lumene. If you haven’t heard of this brand before let me tell you a bit about them. Lumene is a Finnish skincare brand who create beauty products that are hydrating and create protection against the Finnish weather. All their products use a variety of Nordic natural ingredients (artic spring water & cloudberries), which properties help to nourish and restore the skin. There has been a lot of research put into how these ingredients really help the skin be it’s best, no matter what the weather is like. A few months ago, Lumene launch in the UK and can be purchased on Feel Unique and Look Fantastic. All Lumene product are 80-98% organic, depending on which one you choose.
After reading some amazing reviews online I decided to pick up two products, which were both part of their Nordic Hydra range. The first product is the Hydration Recovery Aerating Gel Mask, which sounds amazing. This mask is a weird texture, as the gel has air bubbles trapped inside, but it feels incredible on the skin. You can use this product in two ways; wither as a mask or as an overnight treatment. I prefer to use this as a overnight treatment, as it feel like you are getting more out of the products and allowing it a good 8 hours to work its magic. I use this product about once a week depending on how my skin is feeling. Another reason I love this brand is their products hardly have a scent, I always feel highly scented products can’t be good for the skin.
The second product I purchased is the Purity Dew Drops Hydrating Eye Gel 15ml. I am so bad when it comes to eye creams, I always forget to use them, but this gel is so nice to use. This eye gel has a lovely cooling feel on the eyes, which makes it so refreshing in the morning and a joy to use. If you want to get rid of puffy eyes in the morning use this and a jade roller. For the past month I have been applying this eye gel every morning and evening and have seen a significant improvement under my eyes. I use to have slight dark patched under my eyes and they have partially gone since using this gel.
If you suffer from dehydrated skin, whether its dry / normal or combination, then you need to give this range a go. This combination of ingredients means your skin is given the perfect amount of hydration, without leaving your skin feeling greasy and clogged up afterwards.
After trying out these two products, I now have a wish list of other products I want to purchase next. Lumene has also released their first advent calendar, which I am so tempted to purchase. If you have already tried some Lumene products then I would love to know which have been your favourite and if you haven’t then why not give it a go.
