I'm Angela I have been blogging at Garden Tea Cakes and Me since August 2011, I am a forty something with scoliosis which I see as a difference not a restriction. I share a mixture of interests with my readers:- baking, gardening, home wares, interiors and heritage. Like many I have been influenced by the recent trend for upcycling, sewing and growing your own vegetables. Days Out and travel are also favourites. I am delighted to be guest posting on The Diary of a Jewellery Lover. Thank you Melissa.
My facial skincare routine is a pretty average one. I try and moisturise every day, but some days I do forget. I use a cleanser and cloth or flannel to remove my make up and eye makeup remover for my mascara. Then I may, just may, spritz with a skin tonic, but I always moisturise in an evening. Once a week, eh hem, once a fortnight I may do a facial scrub or face mask.
I rarely talk about my skin care routine or products I use, occasionally I may discuss them with my sisters or friends. But recently I have had much to say to them following the introduction to a most bizarre sounding brand MooGoo Skincare. I have been using some of their products for the past six weeks.
Skin Milk Udder Cream £8.00 for 120ml, this is the product that launched this Austrian skin care brand. It is as stated a light cream that easily penetrates the skin thus being quickly absorbed.
Milk Wash £11 for 500ml I used as a facial cleanser, I can not tell you how light this product was to use on the skin, hopefully I have captured this with my photographs. With a unique almost soft feel to the product it glides on to the skin, which I used my hands dampened with warm water to create a gentle lather. I removed the product with a wet cloth. I have to say that this was my favourite of the three products, and one I will purchase in the future.
Blemish Cleaning Moisturiser £12.50 for 75g ideally for problematic skin, I suffer with patches of persistent dry skin, but nothing as bad as acne. With excellent moisturising qualities, it solved my dry skin patches. Do not be put off by the slightly grey colour to this cream.
I love…the scent of the products, how to describe them? Natural, soothing, milky but not milky, just very pleasant. No overpowering or stimulating fragrances which you particularly do not want if you are about to relax and go to bed.
A little of these products go a long way.
People who care about the ingredients of their skin care products. MooGoo claim to be one of the most environmentally friendly skin care companies around. MooGoo products are aimed at people with sensitive or problematic skin but can be used by all.
The important stuff…
Available at selected stockists in the UK, but also available to order online.
