Products I received in PR that I love so much, I either have already, or will repurchase....


Products I received in PR that I love so much, I either have already,  or will repurchase....

Today's post is a little different. As a blogger, I'm very lucky to receive PR (but also very choosey in what I'll accept - it has to be a good fit for my readers, for me, and something that I'd be happy to spend my own money on). Not everyone acknowledges when a product was sent to them, but I always do. I don't do sponsored posts, so if I receive a product, it is without any obligation. Today, I want to share the products that I already have repurchased, or will repurchase as soon as I finish the product, which was originally received in P.R. There are many many more product than just those mentioned in today's post (Sunday Riley and Dermalogica are just two brands that spring to mind), but these are the products, which I currently have at the moment. If I have any discounts, I will include them, in case you want to buy anything I mention!

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Treatment: I actually bought this before I was ever sent it in PR - I bought it around 3/4 years ago, when I was on medication that really dried my skin out and I couldn't even smile without my lips cracking. I had tried so many other balms, without any relief, so when this finally worked, I was absolutely delighted. I love anything citrusy, so the scent is delicious, but it's also really nourishing and immediately soothes my lips. I have repurchased this on many occasions and was recently lucky enough to receive some Lanolips in P.R. but I will continue to repurchase it. The only problem is that my husband loves it too, so I have to share!

Lanolips Rose Hand Cream:  Again, this is a product that I bought before I ever received it in PR. I use hand cream several times daily, at the best of times but, obviously 2020 has taken it to another level and I've been trying so many brands. I adore anything rose scented, and again, this is really nourishing but, non-greasy. This tube is almost finished and I'll definitely repurchase. The size is also perfect for your handbag, as it's a slim tube. Use the code LYMIN to save 20% on Look Fantastic.

L'Occitane Shea Foot Balm: Regular readers will know that this is one of my favourite ever brands. My Mam introduced me to it around 16 years ago and I've loved it ever since. The products are all super-effective, a little goes a long way, they smell good and they are absolutely dependable. I also love how the brand supports so many great causes. Anyway, back to this product, it's richer than their regular foot cream, so it's perfect for this time of year, when skin is even drier, due to the cold weather and central heating. I slather my feet in this and then put a pair of socks on, as I feel it works so well as an overnight product. It really does keep my feet feeling baby soft.

L'Occitane Supple Skin Oil: I moisturise my body daily, but the great thing about this oil, is that if I really have to (lack of energy, busy etc), the nourishing effects of this oil can be felt for 48 hours. Supple is the perfect way to describe how this oil leaves your skin. What I really love about it, is that I can apply it, without having to wait too long before getting dressed, but that said, I find it a real treat to use it after a bath at night and then I get cosy in my pyjamas. This would be ideal for busy parents, especially those whose skin is really feeling the effects of the drop in temperature. This is another product that I actually bought before ever receiving in P.R.

Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion:  I've written about this body lotion several times on the blog (and other products from the lineup here),  and it's a product that I continue to repurchase, because it keeps the bumpy/chicken skin on the back of the tops of my arms at bay. It uses lactic acid, which I know some people find the smell of a little off-putting, but there is also an unscented version, plus they have now released a limited edition green tea edition, which also includes notes of bergamot, lime zest and jasmine. I find that you have to be consistent with this lotion to get the best results, so I just keep it for my arms and knees, as the other areas of my body don't need it. Although it uses lactic acid, it doesn't leave the skin feeling stripped, as it also uses sweet almond oil to balance and nourish the skin. I absolutely love this brand and also recommend the Smoothing Body Exfoliant, Softening Bath Oil, Foot Cream.... basically everything! You see, my husband has very supple and soft skin and I can't have his arms feeling softer than mine so I'll continue to repurchase this! Use the code SIOBHAN20 to save 20% until the end of this month! That code works on the entire brand. Now is the time to stock up!

Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil: I wrote about this oil in this post. I love the light texture of this oil, which absorbs quickly and easily, but really packs a punch in terms of moisture, with its blend of noni fruit extracts, rosehip oil and sea buckthorn oil. It's the perfect final step in my routine and I will definitely repurchase....and hold out hope of looking like Miranda Kerr!

Dr Dennis Gross Professional Grade Resurfacing Liquid Peel: This duo gives the skin a filtered look and works wonders overnight. I have spoken about it at length in this post, but basically, if you want new skin, this duo works wonders! It is pricey, but I repurchased because it lasts such a long time.

It's a 10 Miracle Leave In Product: This has been a relatively recent addition to my haircare routine (at least 6-8 weeks now) and I can honestly say that it works! So much so, that I am really looking forward to finishing my current shampoo and conditioner so that I can try the accompanying duo. I wrote about this in my post-Covid hair loss post here and I continue to use it and will 100% repurchase it. I don't actually use any styling products now because this deals with any frizz issues, as well as protecting my hair and its colour, as well as a host of other benefits!

Filorga Time Filler Night Treatment: A while ago, I was kindly sent, what I could only describe as a hamper of products from Look Fantastic, which was a very welcome treat! They will gradually all appear on the blog but because I had never tried anything from this brand before, I cracked open this night treatment and it was love at first use! It is packed with hyaluronic acid, a collagen booster, Gluconolactone, and plant extracts. It has quite a dense texture but it melts into the skin, which is left feeling comfortable, nourished, plump and elasticized. I adore this and can see why night creams are important and more intense than day creams. I will definitely repurchase and can't wait to try more from the brand! Use the code LYMIN to save 20% on Look Fantastic.

Omorovicza Omoressence:  Yes, I know that regular readers are probably bored of hearing me speak of products from this brand, but what can I say? They just work for my skin! I had already been buying  products from this brand. when their PR reached out to me in 2016, but this was a new release at that stage. Like I said, previously, I thought that essences were gimmicks - maybe some are, but this one certainly isn't! It is used after cleansing, toning and misting, and before serums, moisturiser etc. I pat it into my skin, then give it around two minutes to absorb (I brush my teeth in the meantime) and then continue with my routine. I am not joking you when I say that this banished all signs of dehydration for me within around two weeks, which is why I have not been without it since. It's not heavy, it doesn't feel like an extra layer of product - it just works! If you have dehydrated skin, I cannot recommend it enough. Use the code LYMIN to save 20% on Look Fantastic.

Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask:  Who remembers the original Spanx for your face post from 2016?! This mask firms, lifts, decongests and brightens the skin. It's like a facial in a jar and I have repurchased more times than I can recall at this stage. I cannot be without it because it takes me from drab to fab in around 15-20 minutes! Use the code LYMIN to save 20% on Look Fantastic.

Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask: Another "can't live without mask" and again, from the same brand. I just love that I know when I am applying this gel-textured mask, that I will wake to better skin - smoother and more refined, thanks to the Salicylic Acid, but also calm and hydrated, due to the Thermal Healing Concentrate™ - it really is magic in a jar. Use the code LYMIN to save 20% on Look Fantastic.

Ouai Treatment Masque: When this was first sent to me, it was in individual sachets, but I prefer the tube packaging, as I can control the amount that I dispense. It really works wonders at repairing the hair, strengthening it and increasing the elasticity, which helps reduce breakage. It has really helped in my post-Covid hair journey  and I'll continue to repurchase. Use the code LYMIN to save 20% on Look Fantastic.

Rejuvenated Collagen Shots and Protein Smoothie: Finally, there are so many products that I have tried and repurchased from this brand. The Collagen Shots are a staple for me, since I first reviewed them here. I find the Protein Smoothies have been great this year, since contracting Covid, as there have been many times, when I couldn't swallow solid food, other times when I just had no appetite, so these have been a great solution to ensure I am getting some nutrition. I have been asked many times to try other brands of supplements, but I am loyal to this brand as I find all of their products to be very effective and I will continue to use them.

Have you tried any of these products? Which products do you buy on repeat? I'd love to hear!
