New Year Skin Resolutions With Herbline Essentials!

Improve the appearance of your skin in just a few steps and with a little help from homegrown all-natural beauty brand, Herbline Essentials

Welcome to 2015 – a brand New Year that’s filled with so many new opportunities and the chance to break bad beauty habits and start again afresh. So, if you’re sleeping with your make-up on, forgetting to apply SPF when out and about, or not drinking enough water to keep yourself hydrated, now is the time to make some positive steps to change and up the ante on your beauty routine in the year ahead.

1. Stop sleeping in your make-up!

How many times do we vow to do this?  Well, all the time probably, until we don’t have the energy to walk to the bathroom and wash our faces! We understand the days get busy, but simply put, if you have time to put make-up on, you need to make time to take it off.  Sleeping in make-up, not only marks your lovely bed linen, but it’s the perfect breeding ground for bacteria too. Instead of falling asleep in your foundation, think about how you can re-order your life to incorporate a better cleansing routine.  If you doze off in front of the TV every night, clean your face before you turn it on. Do you hate washing your face in the sink, then take a shower and wash it then.

Herbline Product recommendation:  Aloe Vera and Honey Cleansing Milk (AED 99) – The Aloe Vera acts as a natural cleanser, while the honey penetrates deeply to nourish the skin. The formula works effectively on make-up and dirt, unclogging pores and moisturing the skin at the same time.

2. Cleanse, tone and moisturise – embrace the importance of a good routine!

Clean, healthy skin is always on trend and embracing the three-step skincare routine really does work, so take the time to choose and invest in some good products that will cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin. It will thank you for it in the long run.

Herbline Product recommendation:  Hero product, the Cucumber & Rose Skin Tonic (AED 105) cools and softens your skin. This tonic is blended with a natural moisturiser and mild astringent that will soothe and tone, leaving your skin moist, supple and beautifully fresh. It is especially good after shaving and waxing too.

3. Give the same attention to the skin on your body as you do to the skin on your face

How many of us happily moisturise our face, but forget all about the rest of the skin on our bodies?. Moisturise your whole body every day, using a lotion, body butter or one of the new moisturising sprays. It’s important to replenish your skin’s lost moisture, especially in this colder season. Also, don’t forget to body brush your body once a week, to kick start healthy blood circulation.

Herbline Product recommendation:  Aloe Vera and Honey Moisturising Lotion (AED 99) – combining the moisture rich properties of Aloe Vera with nutritive honey, this delicious moisturiser works as a light, yet powerful, detoxifying and healing lotion. As it hydrates, the skin is transformed, becoming smoother and more supple.

4. Don’t forget your SPF!

Sunscreen isn’t just for when you hit the beach. Never forget the importance of protecting your skin from the sun, especially here in the harsh desert environment, as you go about your day-to-day life.   On a daily basis, the sun’s UV rays can affect our skin more than we realise. Long-term, regular exposure to the sun can decrease the elasticity of our skin, resulting in premature aging, while too much sun can also decrease our skin’s immune function, making us more susceptible to cancerous cells.

Herbline Product recommendation:  SPF 40 Sun Screen Lotion (AED 109) is fast absorbing and protects your skin from wind, sun exposure and heat, whilst gently moisturising. Suitable for all ages and skin types, this lotion can help to heal minor rashes and sunburn. Just don’t forget to re-apply it every 2 hours or after swimming.

5. Sleep more!

While eight hours of sleep might not be for everybody, you know better than anybody just how much sleep your body actually needs. It’s just so easy to try and get by on less than that, isn’t it? Here’s the thing though: your skin, (like the rest of your body), regenerates and repairs as you sleep. This means that getting adequate sleep will do wonders for your complexion and your overall health.

Herbline Product recommendation:  Try Herbline’s wonder cream, the Aloe Vera, Apricot & Sunflower Nourishing Cream (AED 141). The powerful Nourishing Cream works by increasing your skin’s resilience to moisture, leaving it soft and completely hydrated. It contains natural ingredients that have SPF properties according to the study of Ayurveda and will detoxify and heal. Pair a good night’s sleep with this replenishing moisturizer and wake up to renewed and replenished skin.

Review: Herbline Essentials products!

Hey you all!

Herbline Essentials is a range of truly natural beauty products for the face, body and hair. All products are made from 100% natural ingredients sourced in the Himalayas and adhere to the principles of Ayurveda to provide long term benefits for a healthy body and mind.

I was so excited to try out two products from HE. Before going onto my review, please note that my skin type is normal, leaning towards dry (particularly in winter):

1) Aloe Vera, Apricot & Sunflower Nourishing Cream : This is a rich and nourishing formula. I have been using this for two months now. This cream is just perfect for cold, dry winter mornings. This cream really lives up to it’s name as ‘nourishing cream’. It moisturizes dry skin in a jiffy and keeps it nourished for a long time. I felt like it completely heals my dry skin, by hydrating it and keeps my skin looking fresh and supple.

Blogpix 029

It comes in a tub containing 50 gms. There is a transparent lid inside which makes sure the cream doesn’t get smeared over the main lid.

Blogpix 031

It’s consistency is really rich and heavy. But for such a thick cream, it gets absorbed within seconds, leaving your skin radiant, soft, hydrated and looking youthful. Once you spread the cream onto your skin, there is a cool sensation which lasts quite a while and you really feel the dryness getting healed.

Blogpix 033

It has a really mild and pleasant smell. It also contains SPF 10. I use this in the morning, right after my shower. This is a cream for Normal/Dry skin. The ingredients of this cream are Spring Water, Aloe Vera Gel, Sunflower oil, Coco Palm Wax, Apricot Oil, Almond Oil. Phenoxyethanol and Natural fragrance.

It’s a bit pricey, at AED 141 for 50gms but a great investment, since you get all the natural goodness and it really benefits your skin. Click here to buy this directly from Herbline Essentials’s e-store for USD38.31 (AED140.71) and they ship free of charge in UAE!. This cream is also sold on Mumzworld.com, Glambox.me and Souq.com for AED141 and also available at most of the pharmacies in UAE.

2) Cucumber & Rose Water Skin Tonic : I received a travel size version of this in a Glambox, sent to me for review, which you can read by clicking here.

Blogpix 009

This tonic contains pure natural extracts of cucumber and rose, to cool and soften the skin. It is blended with a natural moisturizer and a mild astringent. It’s light pink in color with a beautiful smell that reminds you straight away of a rose. The smell lingers on for a little while.

It comes in a bottle with a pump. After many uses, I was like “Why is this tonic not getting used up??”, because the level had not gone down in the bottle. It’s funny!.

20140213_112142

But that’s when I noticed that there is a base, inside the bottle which gets sucked up with each pump. It’s clever. After nearly a month and a half of use (both day and night), I am done with the 30ml bottle. It sure lasted me a good while because 30ml is really just a little. I have saved this bottle because once the base is pushed back all the way down, you can refill and reuse the bottle and seriously, with a pump as neat as that one, I can’t really throw it out!. I am planning to fill it up with a DIY toner.

This tonic has to be applied onto a cotton pad and gently dabbed onto your face. It has a cool feel to it and your skin looks instantly fresh and feels soft. I really loved it. When it got over, I was pretty sad. That smell is just so nice, I miss it!. This tonic is for Normal/Dry skin type.

The ingredients in this tonic are Spring Water, Rose Water, Cucumber Extract, Glycerol Vegetalis, Natural Fragrance, Sodim Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, FDA approved colour.

Click here to buy this directly from Herbline Essentials’s e-store for USD28.54 (AED104.83) and they ship free of charge in UAE!. This cream is also sold on Mumzworld.com and Glambox.me for AED105 and also available at most of the pharmacies in UAE.

I am really impressed with Herbline Essentials brand. You can feel it’s natural goodness working wonders on your skin. I highly recommend you their products. Note: I was given a complimentary Nourishing Cream for review purpose. All opinions are 100% my own.
