Whether you suffer from spots, irritation, dull skin, redness, or you just need to give your skin a boost, today’s Beauty Scoop has you covered…

A cleanser that has been specifically formulated for dull, oily skin that’s prone to breakouts. If you’re suffering from pimples, then give this a try. It contains Salicylic Acid to help remove bacteria, Herbal Clay to reduce oiliness and calm the skin, Scrub Beads to exfoliate the skin as well as Brightening Essence to reduce dullness.

Placecol Optimum Hydro Mask

If your skin is dry, stressed and in need of a little therapy, give this a try! It helps to replenish your skin’s natural moisture and remove cellular waste, all while giving your skin a soothing and calming effect.

Use it on a weekly basis to give your skin a much needed therapy session. Over time, it can help improve the softness and suppleness of your skin.

Dermalogica Concentrated Booster Kit

This hydrate. protect. renew kit contains 3 miniature skin boosters that give you the option to customize and maximize your skincare regime. Since skin can change on a daily basis, having these boosters on hand will allow you to modify your moisturizer, to suit your skins needs at the time. All you need to do is add a few drops directly onto your skin or mix it with your moisturizer.

This kit contains a Skin Hydrating Booster, Solar Defence Booster SPF 50 and a Skin Renewal Booster, each one allowing you to customize your skin’s needs without the need for more products.

I really love these little boosters for travel! That way I don’t need to haul a ton of different products along. Just my usual cleanser and moisturizer, and then I have mini versions of extra sun protection or hydrating and skin renewing options, that I can apply depending on how my skin feels when the climate changes.

Dermalogica Redness Relief Primer

If you suffer from sensitive or flushed skin, then this little guy will be your new BFF. It’s great for calming the skin down, and to be honest, the smooth, yet not-oily texture offers a perfect primer to create the ideal canvas for your makeup application.

The product itself is green, which helps to counteract the redness of your skin and balance out the colour. This combined with botanical extracts including; yeast, oat and oat kernel oil which help to give your skin an instant calming effect. Plus it also contains an SPF 20.

A beautiful product and even though my skin is not totally red or sensitive, I do have a bit of redness going on in the cheek area when I wake up, and this little guy makes my life so much easier.

Filorga Perfect+ Serum

I mentioned this new launch the other day, and now that I’ve been using it for over a week, I am beyond impressed.

My skin looks amazing! I just want to apply more, more, more!

My fine lines look way smoother, and my skin just looks more flawless! My pores have reduced and overall, I’m loving the texture! My skin is glowing more than usual, and not in the oily kinda way – just a natural, flawless glow that looks healthy and makes my skin look and feel younger.

Such a great product, and although I’ve never been disappointed by anything from Filorga, this is for sure, one of my top 10 besties from the brand.
