A post holiday pamper!

Post holiday pamper products, how to rehydrate post holiday, beat the frizz

When I came back from holiday a fortnight ago, I was in serious need of a pamper - my hair was frizzy, my face was in need of a whole arsenal of products and the my whole body felt dehydrated (inside and out!). Couple that with then getting strep throat, followed by bronchitis, sinusitis and a lung infection (I don't do anything by halves!), I just felt like a mess and in serious need of some T.L.C.  I want to share some of the products with you that have helped me to tame the frizz and plump my skin - they're not exclusive to a post-holiday pamper but any time that you need a little pick me up and judging by the conversations I had with some ladies around the pool, we all need this from time to time!

The best of what's left in the sales....

Most of the summer sales started just before I went on holiday so I didn't really have time to scour the net for bargains and assumed that most of the best products would be sold out by the time I got home. When I'm away, I try to be on my phone as little as possible so I wasn't interested in the sales but in the last few days, I've found some great bargains that I want to share with you and I'd love to hear what you've bought.

001 London Alpha-Paradise Cleansing Dew - as beautiful as the name suggests!

001 London Alpha-Paradise Cleansing Dew Review

I was first introduced to the brand 001 London last Autumn when I was kindly sent their CRYOpress and Alpha-Glow Flash Facial, which I reviewed here.  The founder of the brand combines both Asian and Western skincare principles and her products aim to restore balance to the skin. The products don't contain any silicones, mineral oil, parabens or animal testing. I really loved the serum so when I was offered the chance to try their new Alpha-Paradise Cleansing Dew,  I was instantly intrigued. The name really grabbed my attention - paradise and dew - yep, I had to try it!

Want super soft limbs and lips? Ameliorate is the brand you need to know about

Want super soft limbs and lips? Ameliorate is the brand you need to know about

You know those annoying bumps that can appear on the back of your arms or upper thighs? The ones that are so hard to get rid of? Ameliorate is the answer to those! In fact, the brand was started because the founder had suffered from this all of her life and then her children did too, so she decided to take matters into her own hands and Ameliorate was born! Bumpy or dry skin is something that most people have but it's easier to ignore in winter when we're covered up but now that we're experiencing some sunny days, our limbs are on show. If you want to improve the appearance of your skin without having to get salon treatments or spend a fortune, this is the brand for you. What's even better is that you can get free shipping on all Ameliorate products by using the code LYMIN at checkout. This is valid until the end of July.

Dermalogica - the brand I've been repurchasing for 16 years!

Dermalogica Brand Focus, Dermalogica Brand Overview

Dermalogica is a brand that has featured in my skincare routine for longer than any other. I had used some other high end brands prior to first using Dermalogica but had never been hooked enough to buy a number of products from the same brand before. It was (and still is) a very hyped brand and I loved the idea of face mapping and multi-masking, which was innovative as they were the first brand to introduce these methods as the norm.  After my first facial with the brand, I then went on to purchase the products that were recommended and loved the results so much that I decided to exclusively use the brand for 6 months prior to our wedding. I knew that I could depend on the products and facials to have my skin looking its best for our big day! Since then, I have always had some of the products in my routine - the brand will be a forever love of mine! Given the long love affair I have had with the brand, I was thrilled to be invited to be part of their Skinfluencer campaign a few months ago. I was kindly sent some products, most of which I had used a lot in previous years, and I want to share my thoughts on them with you today. Every product from the brand is free from artificial colours and fragrances, alcohol and mineral oil.
