The Autumn season has approached and although here in London, we're all attempting to get wrapped up despite the (gradually changing) hot weather, the climate is definitely beginning to have an effect on everyone's skincare routines.
SNP Gold Collagen Sleeping Pack
I cannot begin to express the joy this has brought me in the winter months. Its a jelly consistency, which you can see in the bottom picture, and its not just collagen on the packet, but its actually collagen and gold in the substance inside the container. I know, its surprising that advertising based on too-good-to-be-true facts actually do exist!
Procedure: The inside actually has gold bits floating around and you're meant to mix it with the rest of the collagen by scooping from the bottom and applying it to your face with an applicator. If you're worried about losing the shape... don't be. Its the real deal and you'll know because if you stare at it long enough, it snaps back into its original jelly shape. Just like how it'll snap your skin's elasticity back. Put it in before you go to bed, after your skin has been properly cleansed and it'll dry and soak into your skin during the night. Make sure you wipe it off in the morning and moisturise with a light layer.
Drawbacks: It melts quite quickly once its taken out of the container and on your skin. If your room or bathroom is a heated and humid place, you can either put it in the fridge or in a cooler area to make it stay slightly longer so you're not panicking when trying to spread it all over your face.
Kiehl's Avocado Eye Treatment
A tried and tested product that has seen its fair share of praise. What can I say about this product that hasn't already been praised? It's efficient, its thick and it lives up to its promise of hydrating and brightening the sensitive areas around your corneas.
Procedure: With clean fingers, dab in circular motions gently around your eyes, making sure to get none into your actual pupils.
Drawback: Thick thick thick! If you put on too much, just close your eyes and wait for it to set before putting some under your eyes. Don't put too much at once because it may have the reverse effect and make your eyes too oily to put on makeup or even irritate your skin throughout the day.
