Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish – This is a true beauty icon and is a long term favourite of mine. I got this sample which is handy for weekends away. Look out for my full review next week.
Victor & Rolf Spicebomb – This is my favourite fragrance at the moment! I have the full size but was glad I got this sample for on the go!
L’Occitane Shea Hand Cream – This is a beauty classic and is nice and moisturising on the hands with the shea butter.
L’Occitane Ultra Rich Face Cream – I’m new to using L’Occitane skin care but this sample has impressed me. This is a rich cream so I had to use it at night but it did not feel too heavy on the skin. I think this will be one to reach for when my skin dry’s out.
Perricone MD Cold Plasma – This is a bit of a unique product from Perricone. It is supposed to be used before you put your serum on to boost everything else you use. As ageing is not a major concern of mine I just used it in place of a serum and I was surprised how good it was. I’m sure my skin looked a bit fresher and brighter after using. The full price is around £120 so I think I’ll wait till my skin needs a boots before paying out for the full size.
Liz Earle Foot Scrub – I never expected to like this scrub as I always think foot scrubs are a bit of a waste of money as they are never abrasive enough. This scrub is extremely exfoliating with the pumice in it and the peppermint oil is refreshing. I would buy the full size for the summer.

The Superskin Moisturiser was created by Liz Earle for people with mature and dry skin. The cream is fragrance-free so it can be used by the most sensitive skins and Liz Earle say that this moisturiser will plump and leave the skin looking healthy and smooth.
Here are the products that I’ve came to the end of using this month.
Elemis Lime Blossom Cleanser & Lavender Toner – A long term staple of my cleansing routine this cleanser and toner is for combination skin and smells delicious.
Philosophy Candy Cane Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath – This wash is fresh and sweet and really does smell like candy canes. I used this over the Christmas season to get me in the festive mood.
Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate – I love this oil and always make sure I’m using it every night during the winter to add extra nourishment to my skin.
Perricone MD Advanced Face Firming Activator – This serum helps brighten this skin and smooth it. It is expensive but the jar last me ages and the texture was lovely and light.
Decleor Lip Balm – I always have a few lip balms on the go and have had this one for ages. It is nice and moisturising on dry lips without being sticky or glossy.

I end up with so many sample sizes of products and being a bit of a beauty junkie I always like to try them out so I don’t miss out on a new grooming must have. Here are the samples I’m using this month.
L’Occitane Precious Cream – I have been using L’Occitane bath and body products for years but this is the 1st face product I’ve ever tried. It is a rich moisturising cream that smells nice and I’ve been impressed with this sample.
Benefit That Gal – Being a guy I was a bit unsure about trying this primer as it has a slight pink tint to it but the pink is very subtle so it will just give the skin a slight lift rather than a pink shimmer.
Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser Dry/ Sensitive – This is a rich cream that is a little too heavy for me to use during the day. I read in the Beauty Bible that it works well as a neck cream so I’ve been using it on my neck at night.
Nude Pro Genius Treatment Oil – A woody scented face oil with omega 3,6,7 & 9 that I use at night before moisturising. It added extra moisture to my skin and smelled lovely.
Acqua di Parma Cologne – This fragrance is a true classic and will leave you smelling citrusy and fresh.
Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner – I’ve been using this at night during this cold spell to add extra hydration.

The winter always drys my skin out. The last 3 years in particular my skin has suffered from the cold weather outside and central heating inside. To combat this I always make sure I’m prepared to add a few power packed products into my routine to add comfort to my skin.
At night I’ve added the Elemis SOS cream and Liz Earle’s Superskin moisturiser to my routine. Both of these products add protection and moisture to dry and sensitive skin. The SOS cream is also a good skin balancer for any skin that is out of sorts so will tackle redness and any spots too.
Depending on how my skin is feeling I either use the products on alternative nights or I mix them together as a power packed bespoke balancing moisture treat for my skin. I always apply them over a facial oil for the ultimate protection for my skin.
