6 weeks on the Osmosis train so it’s around now that I’ll start seeing the results.
You need approximately 4-6 weeks for a retinol Treatment to work and 6-8 weeks for a dark spot treatment to work, hence why I’ve not posted evening routines during this period, since they haven’t changed while I test these products.
I’ll be posting my reviews in a couple weeks!
.
For those of you interested in this line which is clinically derived but has a holistic approach, there is a fantastic offer right now to celebrate the launch of Osmosis here in the UK (check out their stories @osmosis.eu ).
.
The products are all free from SLS, parabens, artificial colours and fragrance.
I do highly recommend a consultation if you’re new to the line (they’re free) but the discount works online regardless!
Use OSMOSIS20 online at @medifine_skinclinic any questions, email them or you can ask me anything about the products I’m using and I’ll do my best to answer.
Happy shopping!!

Day 17 MASK 🌟#skinemmies2017
.
I love masking and aim to mask every other day if I can. 
That will soon change with this Environ mask since if you are using it to target hyperpigmentation, you use 2x the first week, 3x the second week, 4x the third weekly and nightly thereafter. I hope I’ll have the patience.
My other Mask is the @cosmedix, perhaps taking a back seat with the Environ in play in now. 
Then we have my new @aesop clay mask which I’m enjoying. Definitely doesn’t reach the same standards as Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask which is on another level (IMO) but it’s for sure a decent clay mask that I’m happy to have in rotation.
The only mask I’m missing is a hydrating mask, however I tend to lean more towards sheet masks for those.
Although if anyone has any recommendations for a hydrating mask, I’d love to hear them!

🌟 DAY 16 BUDGET & DAY 24 BODY MOISTURISER #skinemmies2017 🌟
.
The award for budget product which also happens to be my body moisturiser (day 24) goes to @aveenous Daily Moisturising Creamy Oil. 
The price for 300ml is £5.13 which in my opinion is a steal since it lasts me a good 3 months (if not more) with daily use.
.
It is a blend of both a cream, derived from naturally active colloidal oatmeal and sweet almond oil.
It’s very light and runny (think more oily) and spreads beautifully, yet you’re never left with a greasy film since it absorbs so well into the skin. .
There is little fragrance, just a slight hint of sweet oatmeal, however it doesn’t interrupt any fragrance that I apply after.
.
I’ve been using this product for almost a decade (on & off) and I simply cant find anything in this price range that competes.
There are lots of other body lotions I love however they aren’t budget and some truthfully aren’t as good.
Aveeno has quite a large range of products and I’ve tried a lot of them but this creamy oil is by far my favourite.
.
Any other Aveeno lovers out there?

I am not the greatest fan of chemical exfoliation (for my skin). If there is one thing to make my skin sensitive it’s acid exfoliators. I’m fine using salicylic acid sporadically when I break out. I’m fine getting a chemical peel by a professional. I’m fine with AHAs and BHAs in cleansers and topical treatments etc, however I haven’t found an acid toner that I could use with any great consistency and not become reactive.
I’ve been using this @alumiermd Bright & Clear Solution every morning for over a week now and so far have had no reactions, so I’m keeping my fingers tightly crossed!
It’s a Lactic Acid based toner with lime pearl and soy amino acids. It also contains arnica and bisabolol to calm and soothe the skin. To top it off, it has antioxidant protection from Kakakdu C plums.
It really refreshes the skin while brightens it at the same time.
I’ll review it further once I’ve had more time to play 😊

🌟 DAY 15 BLOGGER #skinemmies2017 🌟
.
Always such a tough day for I don’t want to leave anyone out and seriously, I believe all of us deserve a high five on this day.
We have such unique voices with different points of view and I love learning and being influenced and inspired by so many different people from all walks of life that if it weren’t for this genius platform, I know I’d never have the pleasure of interacting with. I’m loving searching the skinemmies # just to see all the different entries.
Today I’m choosing to highlight feeds that I feel all have very different voices to my own and therefore I seem to look to these for my own learning/education and a lot for product inspiration when I feel the urge for a new cleanser or new mask (cause Lord knows I don’t have enough, right?).
These are also feeds that if you’re not following, I really think you should ❤️
.
@amongthefew For the most obscene Biologique Recherche collection and just overall great guy.
@dirtyboysgetclean I want everything Matt features! Always discussing a new topic. I lust after his candle selections.
@mrsjassyglows I’m always learning from Jassy and she’s been pretty influential in some of my buys.
@thebeautyendeavor kind of like Matt, I want everything in Michelle’s feed! Great blend of skincare & makeup.
@skincaremagpie is a walking encyclopaedia of every chemical that will go on her face and also happens to keep me very entertained with 1am chats 😂.
@beamwonder skincare geek on another level, beautiful feed with a such a fantastic brain and soul.
.
If you’re looking for industry bloggers that I follow, I really appreciate the advice that @nadinebaggott gives and if you’re not following @trinnywoodall , (she’s more fashion but does some skincare) she’s absolutely brilliant. One of my favourite feeds ever! Her new makeup line @trinnylondon is being spoken about all over London (I’ve yet to try it, only just bought the skin Perfecting Cream which I love) she ships worldwide too!

Two new purchases. I drift heavily between drugstore and cosmetic brands for body care, however this shower gel was influenced by @lpetitesfleurs and @lisaslifeloves. So far enjoying that it lathers a lot, it’s a little too sweetly scented but that’s a personal thing.
Really never saw myself buying into this hair care brand but got a sample with a @cultbeauty order which I loved and it prompted me to purchase the full size. It’s in a lower price range than Rahua which I also appreciate. Would definitely like to explore more from the brand.

I am on a no new cleanser ban until at least 3 of these are empties.
Unfortunately #oneemptyonenewbie isn’t working for me since it means just constantly replenishing and keeping my current set of “open” cleansers in a never ending cycle.
I don’t buy backups or multiples and yet I seem to have a collection of cleansers waiting to be opened and I’m desperate to get to them.
So, in a bid to efficiently get through my collection, I’m not opening anything new until at least 3 are finished.
If you have any questions about any of the cleansers, let me know!

🌟 DAY 13 SPF 🌟
.
These are my favourite SPF choices and have been pretty much all year.
The ZO Skinhealth is a repeat 3 x so should tell you my love for it.
I’m extremely impressed with Origins (could do without the fragrance) but the finish is stunning.
Trinny London is new to me but loving it so far (it’s a “skin Perfecting Cream”).
A point to note, whether you’re a fan of physical or chemical sunscreens, it’s most important to find a formula you’re going to love and wear, not just once a day but multiple times a day. The average application lasts 80-90 minutes, therefore if you’re spending a large amount of time outdoors or even going to and from your car during your office commute each day, you need more than just your one application.
As for SPF in makeup...it’s often not providing adequate protection and we are also not putting our makeup everywhere, therefore it’s recommended to use SPF prior to makeup application.
However...it’s important to remember that if you’re wearing makeup with SPF 20 and a sunscreen with spf 40, it does not equal spf 60. It still equals spf 40 as math favours only the highest spf.
If you really want to become spf savvy, follow my good friend @insidious_skincare. He’s taught me everything I know on the subject!

I’ve repeatedly said that AltoDefense has been my favourite antioxidant serum and for good reason, it works! 
I’ve gone through two and not been sorry.
At the same time, I’ve had my eye on the @alumiermd range, specifically their Anti A.G.E serum, which it’s premise is to “attack and defend”:
Reduce the visible signs of ageing caused by:
Free radicals.
Pollution.
Glycation.
U.V. Induced Sun Damage.
This will now take the place of my AltoDefense serum and I’m super excited to put this to the test.
Huge thanks to the @alumiermduk team for sending this my way.

🌟 DAY 11 TREATMENT 🌟
#skinemmies2017
.
It’s no secret I do a lot of treatments. I do love my treatments! 
Today, I will talk about 2 treatments that I get asked about the most, Botox and Fillers.
The truth is, if you have a line or a wrinkle that bothers you, then injectables are the answer.
No amount of eye cream, collagen serum, retinol etc. is going to erase a wrinkle that has already formed in its tracks.
Antiaging treatments such as microneedling, Ultherapy and laser etc. are fantastic at maintaining the skin and reducing the look of lines and wrinkles.
If you’re unsure as to which does what, think of it this way... Botox freezes the lines/muscles and also contours the face (when injected into the masseter muscle and slimming the jaw, can also get rid of a gummy smile). Fillers, fill and plump the face (and also contours but in a different way). So when my facial paralysis acts up and my cheeks are not symmetrical, we inject filler into my left cheek to make it more uniform.
I love Botox around my crows feet and in my masseter jaw. I’m also a huge fan of getting rid of the dimples in my chin but personally I don’t love Botox it in my forehead.
Always seek out an experienced injector that will give you an objective opinion, they are the artist after all.
Remember, rather inject little and often and have no regrets than inject lots at once and have a botched job (that being said, fillers are dissolvable if you really do hate them).
I personally think you see a more balanced face with a combination of Botox and filler rather than just being “over filled” or having that “frozen look”.
Just some tidbits I’ve learned along the way... stop oral aspirin, ibuprofen and Vitamin E several days before your injectables as you will be more susceptible  to bruising by taking them. Bruising is totally normal and not a sign of a bad injector (I bruise terribly, especially my lips) but some won’t bruise at all. Swelling is also normal and can increase on days 2 & 3, therefore don’t expect to see true results until day 14. Lumps & bumps from fillers are also to be somewhat expected, they can just be lightly massaged until they dissolve. Continued in notes...

🌟 DAY 10 NECK 🌟
#skinemmies2017 .
I do have a dedicated neck product that I’m really bad at using and I can see @thebeautyconservator shaking her head at me.
I need to start using this consistently because whenever I do use it, I see results.
I have the worst neck posture in the world so it’s only my interest but for some reason I’m lazy 🙈🙈🙈
If it were a breakout on my face you know I’d be addressing it, so why I am not so concerned with my neck? You know I’ll be crying in years to come.

I need to start using this consistently because whenever I do use it, I see results. I have the worst neck posture in the world so it’s only my interest but for some reason I’m lazy If it were a breakout on my face you know I’d be addressing it, so why I am not so concerned with my neck? You know I’ll be crying in years to come. . . . . #skintips #skincarejunkie #skincareobsessed #beautifulskin #glowingskin #healthyskin #beautycommunity #beautycare #skincareroutine #skincareregime #luxuryskincare #skincareluxury #skincarediary - 7 days ago

🌟 DAY 10 BREAKTHROUGH 🌟
.
I’ve already spoken about my breakthrough product of the year and I’ve found it really fascinating to read people’s posts about all their different type of breakthroughs.
As we near the end of the year and we reach that cliched time of year of resolutions (which btw I hate) I do find myself asking what I’ve learned this year and what I hope to do differently next year.
The huge pro of this platform are the connections we make, the influence we have on each other, the friend Mail we send, it’s awesome. It also leads to (in some cases) compulsive shopping and overspending in areas where truthfully, I just don’t need it. Even with #oneemptyonenewbie I have enough skincare for a family of ten. And I don’t even buy backups.
I tally up everything I buy and my annual spend this year has been exorbitant. Much more at the beginning of the year and less towards the end.
I also have seen how much treatments are helping my skin and truthfully, I’d rather spend a tenth on skincare and the rest on treatments.
So my goal is to really work through what I currently have, which is a tremendous amount, truly analyse my needs before buying and put the rest of my money towards treatments which are making such an incredible difference to my skin health and will hopefully curb my spending on product in the long run.

🌟 DAY 8/9 SERUM & BREAKTHROUGH 🌟 #skinemmies2017 .
.
@skinbetter “AltoDefense Serum.
AltoDefense Serum has been designed to achieve the broadest range of #antioxidant protection from oxidative stress”.
The serum features a powerful blend of 19 powerful antioxidant ingredients designed to work together to provide a dynamic defense against #freeradicals.
When you live in a big city like London, wearing sunscreen isn’t enough in the fight against ageing. Being exposed to pollution, car fumes and UV rays lead to redness, inflammation, rough texture, sensitivity and more.
It took me a while to feel the benefits of this incredibly powerful serum, however now you’d have difficulty prying it away from me.
Coupled with SPF, I truly feel protected as though I have an indestructible blanket protecting my skin.
There is everything from vitamin C to co-enzyme Q10, turmeric to superoxide dismutase, green tea to grape seed extract and many more.
In terms of results seen, it’s a slow burner. It took around 6 weeks of consistent use and I’m now on my second bottle with no plans to retire soon. I have seen much plumper skin and overall healthier looking skin with a definite glow.
This product quickly won Best Breakthrough Product Award from Allure this year and is hands down winning my best breakthrough and serum product 🙌🏻.

🍓 Osmosis Correct Mini Review 🍓
.
I’m 5 weeks into my Osmosis journey. Theoretically it’s too early to formally review this product, however I wanted to share how it functions as a retinol serum, key ingredients and where it sits amongst the other Osmosis products I’m using.
I’ve previously spoken about the ingredient Retinaldehyde and how it is the strongest OTC retinol available as it is the quickest to convert to retinoic acid once on the skin. 
It has also been proven effective in correcting acne scarring and though research is limited, it’s been said that it can be effective in fighting blackheads.
A bonus with this form of retinol, is that one can easily blend it with AHAs & BHAs. Something @alliesofskin Bright Future has done very well with their formula and this too has Lactic Acid in it to help fight pigmentation.
Other notable ingredients are:
Niacinamide, Glycerin, Chlorella (AOx support), Thiotic (R-Lipoic) Acid (AOx support), Phosphatidylcholine (essential fatty acids), Caprooyl Tetrapeptide (peptide helping to maintain structure of the skin).
I use this nightly after I have used Enlighten and Stemfactor.
My one gripe (I don’t know if this is a retinaldehyde issue) and bear in mind this is relatively minor and doesn’t stop me using the product, it’s more an observation, it’s a very tacky serum. However, I found the same to be true of Allies Bright Future and both require a mist to be used after for better absorption, therefore I’m not convinced it’s a brand thing.
Osmosis has 4 levels of retinol and this is level 3. I’m not sure you can easily correlate this to other retinols via a % so I highly recommend discussing with a specialist before purchasing to see which is the right level for yourself.
