The Hydration Hereos | New Year Skincare Saviours!

Through the Christmas and New Year period my skin most definitely gets the short straw as late nights, more alcohol and lots more chocolate take over! I always have the best intentions to take off my make-up every night properly and do my night time skincare regime, but I would be lying if I said I didn't slip up every now and gain... especially around this time of year. This has left me starting the new year reaching for some serious hydrating products that I have fallen in love with! I usually don't use many products focused on hydration apart from my moisturiser, as I normally focus on pore cleansing for spot/ blackhead control however, since finding the Una Brennan Rose Hydrate collection I am obsessed.

Save your neglected and dehydrated skin with these affordable skin treats...

Unna Brennan Rose Collection
While scouring the skincare section of Boots I noticed Unna Brennan's little shelf and instantly recognised from an expert facial I had a while ago. Well if it's good enough for my favourite facialist then it's good enough for me! Bonus, it was on offer. I picked up the Super Facialist Rose Calming Creamy Cleanser and Rose Peaceful Skin Night Cream, which I also use as my day cream. The cleanser is exactly what its says in the name, calming and creamy. Using these together leaves my skin feeling really healthy, soft and hydrated after washing off with warm water, as well as keeping my redness to a minimum. I really want to try every product in the collections now, especially the Intense Moisture Mask! The Super Facialist products are designed to give yourself that spa facial experience at home and Una Brennan has so many different ranges to target different problem areas such as Anti- Blemish, Firming, Brighten, Rejuvenate and Anti-Ageing so I highly recommend checking her products out!

Clarins HydraQuench Mask
This has been the best overnight treatment I have ever used to date! The Clarins HydraQuench Cream Mask gives amazing intense hydration to my tired dull skin, giving it extra moisture that my night cream would not. It is a lovely cream non-drying consistency instead of a traditional drying mask which leaves your skin feeling replenished in the morning. I'd love to try other products from this range but they are quite pricey so I would probably test out the Una Brennan products first.

Boots Ingredients Sheet Mask
I was pleasantly surprised that such an affordable sheet mask could be so successful! Being that I'd never actually tried a sheet mask before, I didn't want to splurge on something I wasn't sure was going to work for me so I opted for the Boots own brand Ingredients Super Hyaluronic Moisturising & Nourishing Sheet Face Mask. I like to put this on in the evening while I'm watching the TV or soaking in the bath tub to relax, as afterwards it leaves a moisturising residue which wouldn't be great to apply makeup over.  The ingredients range is 2 for £3 at the moment so next time I'm in Boots I'm going to pick up their Cleansing & Purifying Mask and Luminous Youth Mask.

Aromatherapy Nourishing Face Oil
I've always been a bit afraid of facial oil for the fear of causing spots until I learnt to just mix in a bit with my moisturiser. I'm currently using a little sample jar from Aromatherapy of their Nourishing Facial Oil which is lasting a very long time. The full-size product is in no way cheap but there are so many facial oils out there, I have no doubt I will probably purchase some cheaper ones next. At the moment I don't feel I have anything to compare this too but I do suggest adding a face oil into your skincare regime when you are feeling dry to see quick results!

Nivea In-Shower Moisturiser
This is a product that I will rave about to everyone that isn't into the whole body butter/ lotion thing which I think is the whole of the UK because it's so bloody cold, as soon as you're out the shower you need to jump into your PJ's, dressing gown and slippers straight away. The In Shower Moisturiser by  Nivea was revolutionary for me as it meant I could finally have it all... super soft skin, save on time and energy and stay warm while I do it. Win! Honestly, no shower is complete without this product and its so affordable. It does leave a slight residue on your skin but in no ways feels sticky or uncomfortable to put your skinny jeans straight on after drying!
