Redhead Roundup – Health and Beauty {August 2016}

Here are a few health and beauty products I’ve been trying over the last few weeks:

Little Butterfly London Illuminating Day Cream

I don’t use many creams and things as in the past I’ve found they make my face greasy or my skin feels heavy but the Little Butterfly London Illuminating Day Cream is so light and hydrating that I’ve been using it every day. It leaves my skin really nice and smooth without any residue and really moisturises the skin.

The Little Butterfly London Illuminating Day Cream contains precious oils like borage, peach, cucumber and papaya seed to hydrate and nourish and acai berries which help to protect the skin. Argan leaf helps firm and passionflower, pomegranate and green tea extracts help smooth fine lines. I’m hoping that if I use this every day going forward that it will keep my skin looking healthy.

So far I’ve been using it in the morning before putting make up on and it leaves a really nice matt texture, the perfect addition to my morning routine.

Little Butterfly London Stretch Mark Butter

Like most mothers I have my fair share of stretch marks but, since having the children, I haven’t used anything to try and reduce the look of the stretch marks, resigning myself to them being something that will always be there.

But the Little Butterfly London Stretch Mark Butter promises to deeply nourish, deliver long-lasting moisture and optimise skin elasticity, all helping to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. I have been working to lose weight over the last few months and I’m hoping that the Little Butterfly London Stretch Mark Butter will help tone and repair the stretched skin on my stomach. I’ve been using it for a few weeks so far and it’s definitely making the skin nicely moisturised but only long term use will tell if the stretch marks have improved or not. I’m willing to give it a go!

Barefoot SOS Daily Rich Body Lotion

One thing I do like to use regularly, especially after a bath or shower is body lotion. The Barefoot SOS Daily Rich Body Lotion has been great to use every day, going on easily and having really good coverage too. I’ve been using this all over and it’s perfect for sensitive skin.

Barefoot SOS Soothing Face and Body Wash

I admit it, I nearly always forget to take my make up off in the evening – such a bad habit of mine. But since I started using the Barefoot SOS Soothing Face and Body Wash as part of my routine I have been religiously taking off my make up before I wash my face each night.

The Soothing Face and Body Wash cleanses really well, leaving my face feeling soft and clean – such a nice feeling before I go to bed. This has been great for daily use and even on my skin, which can get irritated at times, I haven’t had any problems with the Face and Body Wash – great for even the most sensitive of skin.

Barefoot SOS Face and Body Rescue Cream

As I mentioned above, I don’t use many creams at all but I am gradually starting to use them when I feel my skin needs something to give it a bit of a fix or boost. The Barefoot SOS Face and Body Rescue Cream is used to highly moisturise and soothe all kinds of dry, sensitive, uncomfortable and problem skin.

I’ve been using this over the last couple of weeks to hydrate any problem areas – elbows and knees for me mainly but I also get dry patches on the tops of my feet too. It works really well, leaving my skin really hydrated and it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling either. A really lovely cream that works instantly.
