We all want a healthy body and we work towards it every day, but so too your skin needs nutrients to keep it glowing and looking its best.  Here are my 5 tried and tested products for the week.

Placecol Pore Refining Mist


  • Reduces pore size

  • Refines skin

  • Reduces shininess and blemishes

  • Anti-congestion

  • Anti-oxidant activity

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Moisturising

  • Improves skin imperfections

This product is lovely, two sprays of the PH Balancing toner leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean. Olea Europaea Leaf (Olive Leave extract) is one of the ingredients and has been used for an external anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory agent for centuries.

Placecol Collagen Reconstruct Therapy


  • Soothes and calms irritated skin

  • Cellular repair

  • Promotes collagen synthesis

  • Regulates and retains moisture in the skin

  • Natural skin softening agent

  • Moisturising

  • Hydrates skin

  • Protects and firms skin


    I would recommend this product for combination skin only in the evening as it might feel a little bit heavy during the day.  The texture is a bit rich but the benefits of the product is really amazing.  I use it after a exfoliator and wash before bed time, the product leaves my face feeling healthy and almost a bit denser in the morning.   Collagen is the main glue/protein structure that gives your skin the healthy structure it needs to stay firm and healthy.  After 35 your body still produces collagen but not as much as in your younger days.  This product is definitely recommended if you want to look after your skin from the outside.  A Healthy diet is also necessary to assist the body to produce collagen. 

Kiehls Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate


A serum concentrate that gives new life to dull, tired skin.

  • Utilizes next generation liquid-to-serum technology to intensively hydrate skin’s deepest surface layers Clinically demonstrated to help correct the signs of age-related dehydration
  • Youthful appearance
  • Plumps skin
  • Smooth the appearance of fine lines & rough texture
  • Formulated with a potent complex of 15% plant-based Glycerin and Shiso Leaf Extract.

I love the feel of the product on my skin, it penetrates easily on a cellular level and leaves it feeling dewy all day long. I have a combination skin and this is usually my biggest issue with products. Especially if they consist of ingredients that may turn sticky such as silicone and Glycerin. It does have a very plumping effect on the skin. I love applying the product any time of day even before makeup as I don’t wear a base.  This is a must have for day or night.

Clarins Limit Edition Eau Dynamisante


  • All-in-One Fragrance and Skin Care

  • Combines the scented and healing powers of plants based on the practices of aromatherapy and plant therapy.

  • Acts as a toner

  • Revitalises and leaves a delicate scent on the skin

  • Environmentally focussed

  • Great for anytime use

I love this anytime anyplace fragrance/skincare. I like it because it gives me instant freshness, after gym and in-between meetings. I have a breathing routine I do right before bed time, and I like using the Eau Dynamisante in conjunction with that to relax with aromatherapy magic.  Its a special product and celebrating 30 years of success, to celebrate this we have a botanical inspired limited addition bottle on shelves now.

  • Preserves radiance

I am a early 5am runner and work a hectic day as well.  I find that my eyes look a little bit tired and puffy in the mornings.  The tube has a great shaped applicator tip which is made of metal which is uses cold to reduce puffiness instantly.  Active ingredients gets straight to work after the eye-cream application as product is absorbed quickly and completely.  Great for me as this products targets the 30 – 39 year age as well.
