Neals Yard - Skin Care

I have very dry sensitive skin. I'm always having trouble with my skin on the side of my cheeks, I keep getting little bumps which are sometimes very painful. Within the past 9 months I have tried tons of products which have helped or made it worse. Products tried range from brands such as; Clinique, Liz Earle, Neutrogena, Olay, Dr Nick Lowe, Benefit, Loccitane, Amie, Nivea, Loreal, Simple and many more. However, I think I have finally found a routine that works for me. I went to Neals Yard, who sell organic natural products a couple of weeks ago and purchased this set. It consists of: Orange flower facial wash, orange flower water and Jasmine enriching face cream. This set cost £25. Check the website. http://www.nealsyardremedies.com/ Using these products have definately helped alot, In the morning I wash my face, tone and then lightly moisterise. There is also a sensitive range but the moisturiser wasn't rich enough for me. In the evenings I take off my eye make up with the olive oil and water mixture that I talked about in a previous post, then I remove my facial makeup with ultra comforting cleansing milk by L'occitane with a cotton round and then wash my face with the facial wash. I then apply heaps of moisturiser and thats it! For my eyes I switch between Origins youthtopia or Bobbi browns eye cream. I have had no breakouts and everyone is commenting on my skin, apparently I'm glowing. :) I will post a pic of my skin quite soon. Have you tried this brand? What do you think?

I always love reading about skin care as of late mines not been in the best of conditions. I have the problem with things working for a short period of time and then it gets use to it and doesnt work.

I haven't tried this product but seeing as its organic thats a bonus I'm a sucker for organic things ! =] Thanks for the link and can't wait to see the glow.

Ok, can i just say you're gorgeous? Like super gorgeous ;)

Thanks for the skincare routine -- most of the time i just go for the final look and ignore the prep, which is often more important than the final look. Anyways, your blog is awesome.
