If you are looking for a natural way to shake up in your skincare routine, check out the Living Nature Skin Steps routine. Over this past week I trialled the Vitalising Cleanser, Extra Hydrating Toning Gel, Rich Day Cream and trialled samples of the Ultra Nourishing Mask and Nourishing Night Cream. I am pleased to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
I have oily combination skin and generally use light products. However I have found that during the winter cold, my skin can dry out which means I need a more nourishing skincare routine. The Living Nature Skin Steps range for dry/mature skin contains New Zealand Active Manuka Honey which draws moisture into the skin, Harakeke Flax for its hydrating and healing properties and Totarol for its anti microbial properties.
The Vitalising Cleanser is lusciously creamy and puts up a good fight against eye make up. The cleanser leaves my skin feeling nourished and plump. The Extra Hydrating Toning Gel is thin gel to be applied directly to the face after cleansing so need for cotton pads. The Rich Day Cream is moisturising without being greasy. As a trio, these products work well morning or night (the day cream doesn’t contain SPF so I find it suitable for nighttime as well).
I’ve completely replaced my skincare regime with Living Nature skin steps and I can’t decide which product I like more! If I really had to pick, it would be the cleanser – it has a beautiful floral scent and I still look forward to using it. I also tried samples of the night cream and mask. The night cream is extremely rich and kept my skin hydrated through the night. The mask was relaxing and luxurious, a great product to use after a clay mask in my opinion.
This handy travel sized pack is great gift for a loved one or an introductory set for yourself. The products themselves look simple and unassuming but could be the perfect booster for your skin.
