Antonia Burrell Cream Supreme Moisturiser

Of all the skincare products I use it’s always the moisturiser that makes me nervous.

I’ve got oily/combination skin and while I can get the rest of my routine spot on, if I then plonk the wrong kind of moisturiser onto my face it can all go very, very wrong, leading to breakouts and super greasy skin.

Not nice.

I count myself lucky then that I’ve discovered Antonia Burrell’s Cream Supreme Moisturiser.

This 100% natural, radiance giving, anti ageing moisturiser is designed to help reduce redness, tackle blemishes, break-outs AND pigmentation too.

Talk about a multi tasking product right, all this and It also helps to smooth and improve your skin!

But how? Well, this lightweight moisturiser is infused with an organic certified Anti-Acne Complex, which has been clinically proven to reduce acne bacteria activity and redness, improve the health of oily skin and provide balance between hydration and oil production.

It also contains Larch Extract, a natural SPF Booster with UV-absorbing properties and a plant alternative to collagen,patented Olive Leaf Extract clinically proven to reduce the appearance of irritated and stressed skin and Mango Seed known as the ‘super-fruit’ with excellent levels of antioxidant vitamins A, C and E to protect skin from further free radical damage and maintain healthy levels of hydration. 

It’s an impressive cocktail eh? Well it doesn’t end there as it is also enriched with Amazonian patented bio actives, which have been clinically proven to effectively balance oily skin, reduce acne and manage hyperpigmented disorders. 


Well, the proof is in the pudding right?

The cream itself is a wonderfully light product, more lotion than cream in texture which sinks into the skin quickly leaving no trace.

Skin is immediately left feeling soft and nourished without a hint of greasiness and after using it twice a day for 4 weeks I have definitely noticed a dramatic change to the quality of my skin.

Breakouts are fewer and I’ve actually noticed than my T-Zone appears much less oily throughout the day which is amazing.

Because it doesn’t clog your skin or feel heavy, it makes a brilliant base for make up and offers just the right amount of hydration.

I love using a product that I know is not just going to tackle my breakout issues but thanks to its potent ingredients is also going to help me fight the signs of ageing- something that now I’m in my thirties I’m finding myself more concerned about. 

Antonia Burrell’s Cream Supreme Moisturiser is a brilliantly gentle and effective moisturiser that is so fab it can be used by all skin types.

You can grab your own pot over on Antonia’s site now where it costs £48.

Dermalogica Skin Brightening Duo Gift Set

Give the gift if beautiful skin this Christmas with Dermalogica’s Skin Brightening Duo gift set.

This fab gift set feature two of my all time favourite Dermalogica products- their Daily Microfoliant and PreCleanse.

This hard working pair are the perfect combination for removing impurities to leave clear, bright and beautiful skin.

Their Precleanse is the first step of the Dermalogica Double Cleanse to give you the cleanest skin ever! 

Containing nourishing Olive, Apricot and Kukui Nut oils this oil busting emulsifying oil cuts through make-up, sunscreens and oil-based debris, making them ready for easy removal. 

Apply to dry skin then add water to transform this hydrophilic (water-loving) formula into a milky emulsion that lifts debris from the skin’s surface.

It is super gentle to your skin and leaves it prepped and ready for your cleanser and exfoliator!
Next up is their Daily Microfoliant, my all time favourite exfoliator.

This gentle, Rice-based exfoliating powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving your skin feeling smoother and looking brighter. 

A little goes a long way- I pour a small amount into my hand then add a little warm water, mix it together then massage it across my face.

It is wonderfully gentle yet super effective at buffing away dead skin and can be used every day!

I guarantee that your skin will never have felt better after you’ve used these two bad boys!

Better still, buying them in this set will save you mega bucks as the Precleanse costs £34.35 and the Daily Microfoliant costs £41.75 when bought alone but this set will set you back a much more purse friendly £53.25!

You can get your hands on this Skin Brightening Duo gift set now over on the Dermalogica website!
