It's rather overwhelming just how powerful natural ingredients can be and it really has me wondering why we use anything other than that in our beauty regimes. With that in mind, next up on my White Rabbit Skincare journey (which I am loving by the way) are two dedicated skincare products from their night-time range and these are:
Olive and Avocado Cell Renewal Serum
Ahhh skin oils, how long I've avoided you and how long I've wondered why! After using this (with the convenient dropper) I'll say for areas which tend to suffer the most from blemishes, this little gem has literally saved my skin and has worked wonders for areas with larger pores (like my cheeks and cheekbones).
I find if I don't treat my skin well regularly enough, it starts kicking off and the balance becomes out of whack. Oils are a fantastic way of retaining the natural balance of your skin, keeping it nicely settled in the middle of the oil spectrum; not producing too little (therefore becoming dry) or producing too much (becoming greasy and shiny.) Oh yes, and this smells incredible with Olive and Avocado (as if I couldn't love avocado any more than I already do!).
Avocado is naturally rich in essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. So, not only is it good for you on the inside, it's good for the outside too!
Olive oil is full of antioxidants too, naturally hydrating which makes it ideal for not only skin health, but hair and nails too!
Chamomile and Carrot Seed Eye Cream
I recently posted a picture of myself looking refreshed because in reality I was exhausted from a long weekend away. In the post I joked about how you can see the wrinkles around my eyes (no shame in that at all) which lead me to feel a little concerned that I don't treat my eyes as consistently as I should. Did you know that the skin underneath your eyes is extremely delicate? This means repeated tugging, wiping and rubbing around this area when removing makeup etc can cause damage to this area with loss of elasticity - something I'd like to hold on to as long as I can, thank you very much seeing as I already have wrinkles here.
This eye cream is quite literally a tub of goodness and ensures the delicate area around the eyes is firmed, de-puffed and repaired with all the antioxidants and vitamins inside, helping to manage the signs of ageing and general signs-of-life. You actually don't need to apply a huge amount which means it will last, and it's a joy to apply because it's not in any way greasy. I am sure applications in the morning and at night would be best, however I prefer to use creams like this only at night where it can get to work in peace without being disturbed (much like me, haha).
Carrot Seed oil is naturally high in antioxidants, anti-aging properties and contains vitamin E and vitamin C. Chamomile is a naturally versatile ingredient with high levels of disease-fighting antioxidants.
