As you all are probably aware, I am in love with Manuka Doctor (check out my mini-haul and review I did not too long ago). Their company is deeply rooted in building women's (and men's) confidence by allowing skin to be at it's purest, and they source their manuka honey and purified bee venom without ever harming the bees. Not to mention, the products really do work.
Here is my review of the Drops of Crystal range.
If I thought I couldn't be more in love with their products, I was seriously mistaken...
Now that the weather is getting a little drier and a little colder (at least it is in NY), it is extra important to take care of your skin and think about switching up your skincare routine to something a little more hydrating. If you're in need of some luxurious new products, look no further...
Step 1: Beautifying Bi-Phase Oil
Though I recommend trying these products as a complete collection, if you can only try one thing, you MUST try this... This oil glides onto skin like, you guessed it, cashmere. The moment it touches your skin, you feel hydrated, smooth, yet never greasy (as oil-prone beauty lovers are usually afraid of). The product quickly absorbs into your skin, and fights aging with its youth-activating "crystal tears," which you can learn more about here. Not only have I noticed an improvement in my skin's softness, health, and tone, but I seriously look forward to cleansing my face and smelling the subtle aroma from this collection at the end of a long day.
Step 2: Cashmere Touch Serum
Next up, treat your skin to an anti-aging serum that works in perfect unison with the bi-phase oil. This serum has a gel consistency with a lovely cooling affect on the skin, revitalising and plumping as you smooth the product in. With this serum (as well as the entire collection, actually), a little goes a long way, so all you need is a single pump to cover your entire face and neck for a radiant finish. This product takes a bit longer to dry than the oil, so I would wait about a minute before applying the cream.
Step 3: Cashmere Touch Cream
To top off this ultra-hydrating routine, of course you need a deeply rich and decadent cream. This cream also feels cooling on the skin (though it isn't a gel), and absorbs nicely into the skin. After applying this liquid silk, my face definitely feels a touch lifted and firmer, though it doesn't have the same dramatic lifting affect that my coveted ApiRefine Illusionist Rapid Lift Mask has (which I also reviewed here). This routine is not only perfect for your Fall routine transitioning into Winter, but the ultimate luxe base for long-lasting and non-creasing/drying makeup - without breaking the bank.
How does your skin change once the skies turn greyer?
