Currently Using | Skincare Edition



Hello Everyone,

Today's post is going to be a quick one (we need it after my last long, and, rather serious post about Why Getting Married Isn't The Best Day Of Your Life).

It's that time again, you know the drill, I've discovered some lovely bits in the beauty world (this time within the skincare category) and I can't wait to tell you about it.


First up in my little trio of joy is a relatively new discovery, Rosi Skinfood.


Rosi Skinfood is a very rich and nutritional Skinfood made from 100% organic ingredients. It is hugely hydrating and feels very luxurious and, most importantly, kind! I love that the ingredients in this Skinfood are natural and that it contains antioxidants and has antibacterial and anti inflammatory ingredients too.



Rosi Skinfood has been said to reduce fine lines too and I'm all about that life!

The consistency is hard, kind of like a jar of set honey which is why, I'm assuming, it came with a little spatula to dig into the pot and remove a small amount.
I've been using roughly a pea sized amount each night after cleansing, it immediately melts upon contact with my face and I'm able to easily rub this in before bed. 

For those of you who don't like scents, I must warn you that there is a prominent smell, sort of a botanical rose smell (if you've ever smelled Neal's Yard's Wild Rose Beauty Balm, you'll know the sort of smell I mean) I personally loved the smell though.

I've been using this before bed as, for me, this feels a little rich and heavy for me to use under my makeup but overnight? Oui, Ja, Yes... (All of the yesses). You can also use it as a lipbalm, a chapped skin treatment and I've been using it on sore hands too.

I've not been using Rosi Skincare for too long (a couple of weeks) but I'm already sold.


Next up we have Nuxe Dry Oil (Huile Prodigieuse).

Where have you been all of my life!?!? I have heard people raving about this product but, for some reason, I never made the leap of faith and bought this bad lad, major regret, major!

Now that this dry oil is in my life I can't imagine we will ever part, like newlyweds we are full of promise to one another and I want our love to be known by all.


I've been mainly using Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse in my hair, I put a small amount of product into my palm, rub my hands together and then run both hands through the bottom of my hair, I had a small amount of Balayage put into my hair when I donated my hair to The Little Princess Trust and obviously that means bleach which means loss of condition but I really think Nuxe is seeing me through this like the rock he is and for that, I envision many years of happiness.


Finally I've been using Neutrogena Hyrdo Boost Water Gel daily moisturiser in the morning before makeup.
This is fairly new to the market and the whole 'gel' thing got me, I love anything a bit different, call it gel or milk and chances are I'll want to try it.


As can probably be guessed, this has a gel texture and is oddly blue in colour (not sure how I feel about the blueness) but performance wise, I'm in love. This gives me a gorgeous base for my makeup, it sinks in super fast and leaves me feeling really hydrated without that sticky or heavy feeling that I detest so much, I love how quick it makes my morning routine, especially when I'm in a hurry (#MostDays) and I will definitely be repurchasing this when I use up the sample I was given.

So that's three new skincare items that have firmly inserted themselves into my routine, have you tried any of these?

  1. Some stunning skincare products here, am definitely loving the look of all these! Rosi skinfood looks all the gorgeous and the botanical rose smell sounds truly divine too. Nuxe are a brand that always look so worthwhile and the dry oil sounds so fab. The Hydro Boost Water gel sounds like such a quick timesaver too, there's nothing worse than that sticky feeling some moisturisers can give so this is a winner in my eyes! <3

  13. There's some gorgeous bits and pieces here (and lovely photos)! I’ve been meaning to sort out my skincare routine for a while now – at least regularly using a good moisturiser, as I always feel so much better when I do remember to put one on before make up. I’ll definitely keep an eye out Neutrogena Water Gel when it’s time for a new pot!

  24. Hello! I loved your post, cause I love to discover new skin products! So this Rosi Skinfood is the one I really want to try, followed by Neutrogena cream. But the Rosi Skinfood is new to me, so this is the one that goes to my list - "to-buy products"! I like that it is natural and rich - I would like to wear it during heavy winter and as a lip balm! Hope you have a very nice day!

I'm really interested, however, in trying that Rosi Skinfood product, it sounds amazing and I love using 100% all natural products on my skin! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having the best week so far!

I also have the neutrogena, which I own and have tried, but haven't added it to my usual line up yet. My skin is just too thirsty and I needed something a little more for myself because LA is so darn dry!
