I would like to think that I am someone who takes good care after their skin. Over the last couple of years I have put alot of effort into nailing my morning and night time skincare routine. If you have been reading my blog for a while, or have even watched my instagram stories where i talk about my skin, then you will know that i suffer quite bad with dry skin. It gets worse in the winter, however, I still get it no matter the season. I incorporate moisturising skincare products in both of my skincare routines, as i really need my skin to be nourished, moisturised and hydrated.
I am such a lover of skincare and I do actually enjoy looking after my skin. I think it is super important to take skincare important, just because you only get one skin so you should take care of it. I have felt so much more confident since looking after my skin, and it actually gives me a little boost in the morning before I do my makeup.

As I said, I have super dry skin and I can get the dry patches anywhere on my face. I do mostly get dry patches on my cheeks and sometimes I will get them on my forehead and chin. I know everyone says that drinking water helps your skin and I 100% believe that. Since I was very young I have always drunk a lot of water, I would always take a bottle of water to school with me and I still carry a water bottle in my bag any time I leave the house. I do believe that drinking a lot of water each day has definitely made my skin as clear as it is, I don’t and have never suffered with acne ( I think this is partly in my genes as no one in my close family really suffers bad with spots ). sometimes though, when I am due on my period I will get atleast one massive spot.
Ecooking very kindly sent me some products that i have absolutely been loving and i had to talk about them. If you also suffer with dry skin, then YOU NEED THESE PRODUCTS! they have become such a staple in my skincare routine. These products are organic and natural.
ECOOKING moisturising mask £32
Free from Vegan and parabens
50ml of product and said to last for 12 months
100% natural and organic ingredients
“For an intensive moisture boost in just 10 min. Or overnight”
The packaging of this product is pretty simple and it comes in clear packaging. i kind of like that you can see the product inside. There is a label that wraps around the bottle, with all of the ingredients and instructions for use.
Once you take the lid off, there is a little stopper that stops the product from falling out.
I have been really enjoying using this product as a quick face mask. Normally with face masks you put them on and have to wait around 20-40 minutes to get the full use out of them. I like that you only have to leave this one on for 10 minutes, which means that you dont get bored waiting around to take it off. I love putting this mask on when I’m having a long hot bath.
I love the consistency of this product as it is thin almost like a gel but it has a tacky sticky feeling. This product has really helped with my dry skin and is very good at moisturing my face. I love using this product in the evening, more so than in the morning. I find that once i have used it, there is this layer of soft mositure on my skin, that feels so soft! I am so happy that I discovered this product!
ECOOKING Pomegranate Lip Balm £9
Free from parabens and fragrance
15ml of product inside.
100% organic and natural ingredients.
This lip balm comes in such a small little tin, it is actually so cute. You just unscrew the lid to get inside. This is super handy for putting in your handbag, or even a pocket. I have found it really good to keep in my gym leggings pocket, especially when i am at work. I think that lip care is such an underrated part of your skincare routine, and a lot don’t add applying a lip balm to their routines. I was always that girl that took a lip balm to school, because I knew how easy it would be for my lips to get dry and chapped- I hate this. One of the worst things is when my lips and dry and cracked, that is why I take such care in looking after them.
I love that this lip balm is lightly scented because it isn’t too much on the lips. I don’t really own a lot of lightly scented lip balms, most of mine have a really over powering scent (which I don’t mind either) I absolutely love the formula, it is like a thick sticky formula which I love love love in a balm. It is perfect for moisturising your lips! I love applying a thick layer on my lips before I go to bed, it really moisturises them. I find myself reaching for this lip balm a lot, it quickly became one of my favourites.
The best thing about these products is that they are both made with natural and organic ingredients. I am not normally attracted to naturally made products, just because I have never found any in the past, therefore I just naturally don’t tend to look for them. These products are such essential products if you suffer with dry skin, or even dehydrated skin. Try them and I kid you not, they will change your life.
What is your skin type?? what are your thoughts on these products?
