The beauty oil you need if you are 30+

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you probably know that Madara is one of my favorite brands. You can check my previous reviews about their fabulous Micellar water (see here), their super effective face masks (see here), or their highly soothing moisturising serum (see here).
Today, I am even more excited to review the Madara Superseed age recovery facial oil*, a beauty oil that is designed for mature/tired skins. Read below what I think!



My opinion

We are all dreaming of a super top beauty product that not only can smoothe the skin out but also prevent any sign of premature ageing. Well, I think I have found a true diamond and its name is Superseed Age recovery facial oil.

Yes, it is one of the best facial oils I have ever tried! You just need a couple of drops, apply it onto cleansed face and leave it overnight. You can also use it in the morning if you fancy it mixed with your moisturiser. It feels really silky on the skin and is super fast to absorb. The scent is really subtle and nice, so perfect if you nose is sort of sensitive to overpowering smells.
Since I have used this oil, my skin looks more radiant, fine lines are somehow attenuated and imperfections seem to be keeping at bay,

So what's inside really? This is an oil blend, made of the most exquisite organic fruit/berry oils, topped up with some brillant extracts. To name a few, we have:

  • the Strawberry seed oil, which is super emollient and helps to maintain skin elasticity.
  • the Cranberry seed oil, a beauty oil packed of Vitamin E and Anthocyanin that aims to regenerate the skin and restore its glow.
  • the Blackcurrant seed oil is another top skin loving oil that is beneficial for damaged and dry skins.
  • the famous Rosehip oil  which aims at reducing scars and helps troubled skins.
  • the Raspberry seed oil is rich in ellagic acid and carotenoids, which have some great anti-inflammatory properties.
  • the Carrot seed oil is rich in carotenoids, which rejuvenates and increases the skin tone.
You also find in the formula a cocktail of antioxidants and healing extracts (Tomato fruit, Sea Buckthorn, Rowan, St John Wort). Another ingredient caught my attention: the decyl cocoate coming in 2nd position in the ingredient list. This component derived from Coconut oil is emollient and helps to condition the skin.

I should not forget to mention how I love the packaging! The bottle comes in a dropper dispenser. You can store the beauty oil back in the pretty box that comes with the product: great to preserve the oil blend from light.

The Superseed Age recovery oil retails at €46.00 for 30ml, which sounds pricey. However, the beauty oil will last a really long time and given the high quality of this fabulous product, I think it is well worth the price. It is a complete product that targets all skin problems related to ageing. Use it regularly and you won't be disappointed.

...Top beauty oil to include in your beauty regime!

7 Winter beauty tips for a healthy skin

After a little break during Christmas holidays, I'm happy to be back with a first 2017 post focusing on little ways that help your skin to remain healthy and happy during the harsh Winter weather. Whether it is cold, windy or snowy, the skin suffers from all these environmental changes. So what to do?
I have listed below a few beauty tips: have a look and see what could work best for your skin...



1- Swap your daily gel cleanser for a more creamy/soothing version that will also bring some moisturizing ingredients.
                                
                                 My picks     Aurelia Miracle cleanser
                                                          Neal's Yard Rose beauty Balm
                                                          Kypris cleanser Concentrate
                                                          Pai Camelia and Rose gentle cleanser
                                                          
2- Use a moisturizing serum as a primer before your daily cream.
                              
                                    My picks      Madara SOS Hydra repair intensive serum
                                                          Absolution serum anti-soif
                                                          Whamisa 100% pure fermented rice water serum

3- Choose a rich(er) moisturizer that can soothe and really protect the skin well against the external factors. Best is to pick one accordingly to your skin type.
                    
                             My picks      Madara daily defence cream
                                                           Pai Avocado and Jojoba hydrating day cream
                                                           Therapi Honey Skincare Orange blossom Honey moisturiser
                
4- Add 1 or 2 drops of Baobab oil to your daily moisturizer. It will bring extra nourishing nutrients to the skin.

                                        My picks    Ooh! Baobab oil

5- Do not forget to wear a sunscreen or an SPF moisturizing cream. Remember that UV radiations are the first causes of premature skin aging- even in winter.


                                        My picks     Kimberly Sayer facial moisturiser SPF30
                                                            Madara Plant Stem cell anti-oxidant SPF30
                                                            Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day cream SPF30

6- Keep your lips and hands repaired by applying everytime it is needed a regenerating lip balm and a protecting hand cream.
                                      
                                        My picks    Weleda skin food 
                                                            Herbfarmacy lip conditioner
                                                            Hurraw Moon Night treatment lip balm
                                                            Rosalena Lip conditioning balm

7-Avoid long and hot showers which tend to dehydrate the skin.
