As a beauty blogger I am fortunately to get to try many more products and brands than most others, and with new products, and brands, hitting the shelves constantly, often favourites quickly get replaced. But two of those products that I have loved for some time, is the Silicium Anti-Ageing Foundation as well as the BB Cream from Thalgo (you can read all about them here), as it gives my skin just the right amount of coverage, while caring for my ageing skin at the same time. So today I'm excited to share with you some other incredible products from Thalgo... 

Let me start with the Thalgo Cocooning Cleansing Milk. Normally I have combination skin, but in the midst of winter I do find that my skin becomes drier, and at times also slightly irritated, while in the midst of summer it can sometimes be almost oily. I admit to generally preferring a gel cleanser where I can splash water in my face afterwards, and not like this one where you remove any excess with a cotton pad.

However, apart from my waterproof makeup, it does remove my makeup quickly, easily and very gently too, and afterwards my skin is feeling very soft, almost as if I've already applied a moisturiser. It also seems to have a calming effect on the skin, - I don't particularly have sensitive skin, but my skin does get irritated by very cold winds, so if its feeling a little red and 'raw' after coming home from a walk around the lake with the pram and the dogs, this cleanser seems to quickly be able to soothe and calm my skin again.

The Thalgo Exfoliating Lotion is an exfoliating lotion containing clear expert complex to brighten the complexion and leave it more radiant, It also has a high content of salicylic acid to exfoliate and bioecolla, which has anti-bacterial properties.

The Exfoliating lotion, which as next to no scent, has the consistency of a toner, and is applied to the skin with a cotton pad after cleansing the skin morning and night (although I have to admit that I like to pad mine in with the hands only!) and before any serum and moisturiser.

I really like that you leave this on the skin to do its magic, and after just a few days I can tell that my skin is not only looking better and brighter, it is also seems to be softer and a few stubborn pimples seem to have suddenly cleared up a lot faster.

Then there's the Thalgo Freshness Exfoliator is another product that I've been loving lately, and intended for normal to combination skin, it is perfect for my skin. It contains among others grapefruit extract, red algae, and menthol as well as polyethylene micro beads, which help deep cleanse the skin deep down every single pore, as well as gently buff away dead skin cells, dirt and grime. It has a very light consistency and the scrubbing beads are super fine, in fact so fine that I thought it surely wouldn't be very effective, but I was very wrong as it leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth, and without any irritation because it is so gentle. I also love that it contains menthol as it gives it a nice fresh scent, as well as it leaves a nice cooling sensation on the skin after use.

Finally, there's the Thalgo Ultra Hydra Marine Mask. With my combination skin I have for a long time thought that using moisture masks wouldn't benefit my skin, but on the contrary make it even greasier. But using one, especially during winter can be a true life-safer.

The mask contains among others; two Hyaluronic Acids that stimulate the synthesis of aquaporins to activate the flow of water from the dermis to the epidermis, as well as the synthesis of epidermal hyaluronic acid that holds water in the skin, to intensely moisturise the skin and give it a plumping effect. It also contains Sève Bleue des Océans, a marine spring water drawn from the heart of the oceans, rich in trace elements and mineral salts, to hydrate and give the skin a healthy glow.

To use, you simply apply a generous layer over the face and neck and leave it on for 5 minutes before tissuing off any excess, and you're left with skin that is incredibly soft and smooth. And my skin really does seems plumper and fine lines therefore also appear to have slightly minimised in size. And what I also notice is by the incredible radiant glow that it gives my skin for hours after use. It is recommended using the mask twice a week, and it is also perfect to use before a special occasion to give your skin a beautiful glow. 

Overall Thalgo really has impressed me again with their beautiful products. I particularly love the Exfoliating Lotion, which has really made a difference to the clarity of my skin and is so easy to incorporate into my existing skincare routine. But I do also love the Freshness Exfoliator as it is so gentle, yet effective, and the Ultra Hydra Marine Mask is just one of those that are great to have at hand when you feel your skin needs a boost of energy and radiance.
