Winter is coming which means its time to change my daily skin care regimen oh so slightly. I have been loving the Botáni skin care range as I find it protects my skin and prepares it for the change of season. I am very excited to share with you the Olive Skin Serum, the active ingredients penetrates my skin and shows immediate results. It is formulated with 100% phyto-active olive squalene, which is a in-built moisturiser and skin protector that is sourced from the humble olive.
It comes in a transparent amber vial with a dropper which makes application a breeze, there is no wastage and you can see how much is remaining in the bottle. This serum comes with a host of benefits, it leaves skin soft and silky with a satin finish, its non greasy and absorbs almost immediately which is a good sign. It brightens my skin leaving it feeling plump, hydrated and is a great prep for makeup.
It pretty much ticks all the boxes for me.

Tips: For quick deep absorption, apply to damp skin. A few drops is all you need, press the serum into skin with your open palm to release the active ingredients.
Rescue Eye Treatment
Not a day goes by without me using an eye cream, gel or serum, I have 2 boys under 4 years old and a busy life which means I don’t often get the chance to get my beauty sleep. One of the first places to show signs of tiredness and aging is the eye area and I love trying different brands and types of formulas. The Rescue Eye Treatment is one I have been using day and night for the past few weeks, it comes in a pump bottle which dispenses the perfect amount and protects the ingredients from oxidising. It has a slightly runny consistency, all you need is a drop, apply around the eye contour area but not too close to your eye as it may cause puffiness. In the morning my eye area feels firm, refreshed and I have noticed a reduction to my dark circles and puffiness is a thing of the past.
