Exotic glow with In The Glow Skincare

I have to say 2017 has been the breakthrough year of skincare for me. I have never had good skin, and I'm always on the lookout for products that work well but also don't break the bank.
In The Glow did exactly that for me! It completely opened a new skincare routine door that I hadn't ever expected to use, and guys, I absolutely love it!

Now, you're probably wondering what new skincare routine could it possibly open for me?
Before I get onto that,  allow me to introduce In The Glow skincare.

In The Glow is a new UK based skincare brand that makes natural organic skincare inspired and infused with exotic tropical ingredients. Their aim is to introduce unique skincare that is both ethically friendly and formulated to give you radiant skin.

Sleekly packaged and colourful, the brand really does do the exotic concept justice, with brightly coloured products to the scents of each skincare range transporting you to sunny skies and fresh fruits. The packaging makes you feel like you're on a holiday.

I was given three products to try out, and here's what I think about them (spoiler alert: I adore them!)

The first product, which is the breakthrough product for me, is the underglow day oil. YES, an oil for daily use. This is the one thing I was most afraid of using for the simple reasons:

1: I have oily, acne-prone skin, so I honestly believed that applying oil to my face during the day will not benefit me in the least!
2: I was worried that applying oil during the day and going out will give me a tan quicker. I have acne- prone skin, meaning my acne can easily turn to hyperpigmentation with the light from the rays of the sun which can make it worse.
3: Oily skin and clogged pores go hand in hand. Having just recently started using a face oil in my night time routine, adding a day oil seemed a bit excessive for my already acne-prone skin.

UnderGlow Oil

I am delighted to say that all my fears were brushed aside when I started using the underglow oil.
Instead of leaving my face extra oily, the oil actually managed to minimise the amount of oil on my face, YES!

It also eliminated clogged pores which produce congested skin. and that too answered my prayers. Remember how scared I was of tanning quickly and pigmentation? The underglow oil left my skin glowing and instead of producing pigmentation and acne scars (my skin does this a lot!) it actually lightens it. So in summary: tick, tick, tick. The oil is in the most gorgeous orange shade; bright like the sun. But it doesn't leave your skin with an orange tint at all. It actually absorbs quite well on the skin. It also has a strong turmeric-like, natural scent which I adore. Every time I apply it, I get excited just from the scent alone.

Why it works so well

I believe the ingredients in the oil are the key factor as to why it's so effective.

  • Rosehip oil which contains linoleic acid that is excellent for healing pimples and acne scarring. 
  • Turmeric by itself has been used throughout ancient times for beauty and health benefits and it is now currently infused with serums and oils as a superpower skin care. 
  • Sea buckthorn oil brings relief to damaged skin. 
  • Frankincense EO slows signs of ageing reduce acne blemishes and large pores. 
  • Vetiver heals scars by promoting the regeneration of the skin and tissue. It's also anti-ageing.
  • Vitamin E oil provides the skin with moisture, hydrating the skin, and works to fight free radicals for that youthful skin.

How I use it

The UnderGlow is a day oil, but it's also so much more. I would typically use it after my toner,  apply a few drops directly on my face and massage it into my skin for a few minutes. Then I'd leave it to be absorbed into my skin, following it with a mixture of my moisturiser and sunblock. The face oil works as an excellent primer as well, helping keep my makeup (when I do wear it) locked and smudge proof. Anyone with oily skin will know that it is extremely difficult to make makeup stay on longer as it easily slides off the face.

 Pink Grapefruit Himalayan Salt Body Scrub

Yes, you read that right! And I'm sure you'll already know my thoughts on this just because of the colour.  This body scrub not only smells like you are on a tropical holiday, but it works insanely well. Unlike other body scrubs, this one doesn't dry the skin! This one actually keeps it moisturised, so you don't have to apply extra oil/moisturiser after. Ideal for those days when you are in a rush, and you need a quick wash. You'll leave knowing that you've exfoliated your skin and scrubbed off those dead skin cells, while also nourishing your skin with oils. You don't have to worry at all about moisturising your body after.

The ingredients for the pink grapefruit Himalayan salt body scrub

  • Mango butter, a natural source of vitamin A, for that youthful skin.
  • Coconut oil, a natural moisture.
  • Jojoba oil soothes irritated skin.
  • Vitamin E works wonders for the dry damaged skin.
  • Pink Grapefruit essential oil rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. 
  • Himalayan salt boosts circulation and detoxifies the body.
LipGlow Lipbalm

Nourishment for the lips.

I'm going to be completely honest with you,  I have full lips, and every girl that has full lips will tell you, you have to take care of them! They dry quickly and show cracks easily when dry. In the past, lip balms I've used are either waxy, too shiny or taste like medication.
Lipglow is the perfect blend. I quickly pat it onto my lips, so it leaves a slight sheen, then after a little while, it gets absorbed into my lips leaving them with a soft full look, minus the shiny, sticky feeling most lip balms leave. Perfect for me, and fitting for the cold weather, as our lips need that extra TLC. Ingredients for the lip glow include;

  •  Sweet almond oil for preventing chapped lips.
  •  Mango butter soothes dry skin.
  • Coconut oil replenishes moisture.
  • Vitamin e oil works wonders on irritated lips.
  • Lime essential oil. The blend of the mango, lime and coconut give the lip balm an exquisite scent.
