Current Skincare & Haircare Favourites

Hey guys! Today I want to show you some new skincare and haircare products I have been using over the past few months and that have now become quite regular in my routine.

I have never used the brand People for Plants until about a month ago and I am so in love with their range now! Their Cleanser & Makeup Remover (RRP $24.95) is such a nice, creamy and hydrating cleanser that removes make up very easily. It has white tea, aloe and witch hazel properties to help give a gentle but thorough clean. Plus it smells like lavender! Another product I just started using is their Body Scrub (RRP $19.95) which is a scrub full of papaya, quillaja and apricot properties that gives your skin a vitamin boost and helps to gently remove and slough off dead skin cells all over the body. The scent is citrus-y. Lastly from this brand is the Organic Lip Balm (RRP $9.95) in the flavour vanilla and cocoa butter. Holy moly. . .this lip balm is seriously the best I've ever used. I love super hydrating and moisturising lip balms that I feel working instantly. Besides Carmex (or Blistex with menthol) I haven't found a non menthol lip balm that works like they do, until now. This lip balm is so so good. I use it all the time and it gives my lips a really healthy glow as well as restoring and smoothing out any dry, chapped skin. It is quite oily (sunflower seed oil being the highest ingredient on the list) but it works so well and my boyfriend said it smells like cake batter. . . winning! People for Plants are available online here.

I've heard of so many great things about Jojoba oil and finally got my hands on some of the Jojoba Company products. I've been using the Jojoba Bead & Bamboo Facial Exfoliant (RRP $39.95) for weeks now and love the way it makes my skin feel after using it. It has helped my blemishes diminish and even out my skin tone. It doubles as a face mask as well but I usually just clean my face with it at the end of the day. It smells like butter with bamboo essence. The 100% Natural Australian Jojoba Oil (RRP $29.95) is very different to what i'm used to. I'm no stranger to face oils (using rosehip oil for so many years now) but the texture and feel of this oil surprised me. It is really loose and oily. It has a similar consistency to water rather than rosehip oil which has a thicker consistency. I have been using jojoba oil over my rosehip oil, by applying 5 drops of rosehop oil and waiting for it to absorb and then applying 1 pump of jojoba oil after. It has helped my skin stay moist, look dewy, and heal my blemishes more quickly. The only thing I don't like about this product is the smell. It's nothing too strong to deter me from using it though. This product can also be used on your body, hair and nails too! Multi tasking products are such great value! The Jojoba Company stockists can be found online here for your nearest supplier.

The latest collection by Schwarzkopf is the Essence Ultime range which was developed with the help of supermodel Claudia Schiffer. I got to try out the new Omega Repair Intensive Hair Mask (RRP $14.99) which helps rebuild and control split ends, infused with omega oil. I didn't notice any significant changes using this mask but hair was very soft and smelt amazing after each use.This can be found a Priceline and other selected pharmacies nationally.

Have you tried any of these products? I'd love to know what your favourite products currently are!
