For me, the transition period between two seasons is the worst time regarding the skincare regime. Mostly at the beginning and at the end of winter, when we have fewer vitamins and when skin becomes dry. Yes, it can be a real problem – the skin feels rough and tight or even becomes chapped or itchy. That’s why it is very important to follow a special skin care routine to reduce irritation, increase skin tolerance and restore its comfort. Recently I’ve discovered an absolute must-have among the luxurious skincare products for spring that will help you survive the transition period.
JANE SCRIVNER NOURISHING CLEANSER
It’s a luxury cleansing balm, which contains about 10 different oils, and can be used as a night balm for deeply nourishing and recovery after a long day. The product itself is very firm, waxy and shiny, and the consistency reminds the lip wax. But right after you apply it to your skin, it starts melting almost immediately. It has a very good scent – it opens on a citrusy top note of mandarin and wildflowers with a tiny hint of a beeswax.
The Nourishing Cleanser from Jane Scrivner works great with any skin type. It helps you to wash off all the makeup, dissolves dirt and purges pores. Therefore it makes your skin feel very clean, soft and soothed. Jojoba, beeswax and a combination of different essential oils prevent dryness, increase elasticity and balance your skin. I personally find it absolutely amazing. And the product comes together with a lovely mitt for better application. So you can have a truly luxurious SPA treatment without leaving your house!
JANE SCRIVNER SKIN ELIXIR
The Skin Elixir has a very lightweight, a bit liquidy and oily texture that glides on smoothly, giving a moisturised finish and smooth appearance. The product has a very strong smell of citrus and Lavandula, that might not be pleasant to everyone. However, it does go away pretty quickly after your skin absorbs the product. It spreads easily and has a slight warming effect when applied to the skin. After applying, your skin feels very smooth and cushiony, but the best result you can get if you use this elixir just before the Over Oil Cream.
JANE SCRIVNER OVER OIL CREAM
The Over Oil Cream can be applied after facial oil treatment as an additional product or on its own as a daily moisturiser. It is by far the best cream I have used – wrinkles are shrinking, texture is softer and brighter on my face and my skin got a healthy glow. I use this cream as a main moisturiser together with the Skin Elixir and it made my foundation sit so wonderfully on my face during the day. It doesn’t break my foundation apart or make it patchy and doesn’t pill up. It makes me feel “tightened” and looking great during the whole day.
After about two weeks of using these products, I can already see the result. It’s very important for me to prepare my skin for spring. And these products are full of different oils and vitamins, which will keep your skin healthy without being affected by sudden temperature changes. Simply use Skin Elixir and Over Oil Cream together as daily moisturisers and soon you will see the result.
And how do you survive the “between seasons” period?
