Now I'm sure I'm not the first woman to admit that I love to indulge in beauty creams, but do not want to spend my hard earned cash on something that either a - will not work or b - is 'er, a little too expensive. With that being said we've cultivated the best beauty creams on the market that work, are amazing and will give you some absolute bang for your buck for the month of August.
all purpose skin cream
With stars such as Kate Hudson, Rihanna, Rooney Mara and many others making it their go to choice for beauty creams – Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream has become an absolute cult favourite, and we can totally see why. Existing for over 27 years the all purpose cream has and continues to make it's mark on the beauty industry.
The cream is 100% natural, with ingredients including Olive Oil, Bees Wax, Honey, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly, Bee Propolis & Divine Love. This means, you guessed it, yes, it can also be used on baby and children, alongside a multitude of other uses such as scar reduction, eczema, skin inflammation, hair conditioner, make up remover, oh, and even cracked nipples! And after discussing the uses with a fellow beauty editor I soon realized that, get this, it can also reduce stretch marks (and god knows I still have plenty).
Once I have washed and cleansed my skin in the evening I use the cream all over my face, hands and belly, rubbing in deeply and when I wake my skin feels renewed, softer and suppler. I really love the feeling this light weight and natural cream has an on my skin and the fact that the cream smells so natural – with no harsh scents or ingredients it actually makes me feel restored and like I am doing my skin some real good.
clinique Moisture Surge™ 72-Hour Auto-replenishing Hydrator
When looking for a deep moisturiser that will leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised all day long - the task, at the best of times, is no easy one. So when Clinique introduced their new Moisture Surge range - we knew it was sure to be a game changer.
The delicate gel contains activated aloe water, which helps skin create its own internal water source and claims to keep your skin almost twice as hydrated at the end of the day, and get this, that it certainly did.
Now my skin plays the middle field 90% of the time, not too oily, not too dry so I consider myself lucky. The gel however works on every skin type so you'll have no issues when applying and it works exceptionally well on dry skin patches. After using my skin felt soft and intensely hydrated and get thiS, a little bit glowy might I add.
Ultra Facial Cream
Kiel's Ultra Facial Cream has also set a benchmark for beauty creams this month. Formulated with moisturising Squalane and water retaining Imperata Cylindrica, which has proven to be phenomenal at protecting the skin throughout harsh weather conditions, the cream is definitely making a well known name for itself.
The subtle lightweight texture and easily absorbed formula, made the cream soak into my skin, ultimately leaving it feeling soft and immediately hydrated. The ingredients also help your skin to stay hydrated for longer and make the cream perfect for everyday use.
Another great cream which has been credited for treating eczema, sun burn and many other skin ailments, Kiel's Ultra Facial Cream has become a firm favourite for women and mothers all round.
