Recent Skincare Purchases

Hello, after discovery a link between mineral oil and my breakouts I've decided to try products that don't contain this irritant. Elemental Herbology gets a lot of love from different bloggers but it is expensive so I thought I'd try out the Moisture Replenish Starter Kit (currently on offer from ASOS). In the kit you get:

- Cell Plumping Facial Hydrator SPF8

- Facial Glow Radiance Peel

- Purify & Soothe Facial Cleansing Balm

- Facial Souffle Overnight Repair Cream

- Muslin Cloth

All of which are pretty generous sizes. I think this will last me around a month with regular use so you'll get a good feel if the products will suit your skin or not. I have to say I'm seriously impressed so far. My skin is noticeably smoother and refined already. None of the products have irritated me or broken me out either. I think this is definitely worth a try for all skin types but particularly sensitive/dry. Wonderful.

Pai skincare also has a cult fan base. There's nothing irritating in the products and they're perfect for those of us with very sensitive skin. Pai do a trial kit  which gives you a nice idea of the quality of the products. This is how I first came to try Pai Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator. This is an incredibly gentle exfoliator that leaves the skin brighter and smoother. It's a gel with micro-beads that turns milky when water is added. It really is very lovely.

I bought Pai Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator from Naturisimo so I could try out some samples from Vapour Organic Beauty. I ordered the Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation in s100 and s110, and Illusionist Concealer in 010. I'm pretty sure though that the foundation samples are both the same colour, what do you think? Anyway, both products smell of herbs, the concealer less so. I'd need to give it a proper go to see if  the smell fades on application.

Do you have any recommendations for mineral oil free skincare for sensitive skin?
