As I am getting further into my 20’s my skin is definitely changing. I used to have quite oily skin and now it is more towards combination, with my T-zone still a bit oily at times, but quite normal on the rest of my face.
The Yes To Tomatoes moisturiser is perfect for me. It feels light and soaks in quickly. On days when I am wearing makeup it creates a nice base for my makeup too. The smell is hard to identify, but inoffensive. I apply this to my face each time I wash my skin and so far I have really enjoyed the product. I think it lives up to the claims on the packaging. I have been using this for about 4 months already and I think that it will last me another 6 to 8 months, using almost daily.
I like that this comes in a pump, I think it is hygienic and means that I won’t struggle to get the last of the product out. However it is plastic and will need recycling, there is no way I can reuse the packaging.
This moisturiser does not contain an SPF. On days that I am going outside I will usually apply a SPF on top of, or instead of this moisturiser.
You can find Yes To at larger Boots or online for £7.99.
I am on a roll with finishing products, and have just about got to the end of my Super Greens facial scrub. I have been using this for about 9 months and have enjoyed every last scrap of it.
I use this to break up my skincare routine, as I usually use Lush Angels on Bare Skin. This is a more abrasive scrub and I prefer it after exercise or if I had makeup on that day as I feel it is more efficient at cleaning my skin. It does leave my skin a little dry, but this is manageable and I moisturise anyway. I will take the slight dryness for how well it cleans my skin, and I don’t use it everyday anyway.
This smells herbal and rich. The scrub bits are made up from bamboo and jojoba beads so is free of plastic microbeads. It is also a cruelty free product.
I think I am going to try another product before I return to this one. I will keep you updated on whatever I try, but I am open for recommendations.
Are there any cruelty free facial scrubs that you recommend?
This morning I finally finished my Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub from Soap and Glory. It has taken me about a year to get throught the whole tub, but I was only using it occasionally until about 2 weeks ago. The difference in the softness of my skin since I have been using it more regularly is noticeable, and I will continue to use scrubs more frequently.
The scent is lovely and sweet, while not overpowering. I think that it complements all of my other toiletries beautifully.
The scrub itself is quite coarse, with large particles of sea salt especially. It really gets the job done, without being too harsh. I have checked, and Soap and Glory do not use plastic microbeads, this as well as the products being cruelty free makes me really happy to use the scrub.
If I wasn’t trying to use up my backlog of toiletries then I would definitely repurchase this product.
