There are a few steps in my skincare routine - I wish I was one of those people who can get away with washing their face with water and soap and look gorgeous, but unfortunately because my skin is so sensitive and anything gives it an outbreak of spots, I have a regime which needs to be kept up every day. This includes removing makeup with wipes or cleansing milk, moving on to a light scrub or facial cleanser, followed by a toner, and then moisturiser/oils/serums. This helps me keep my skin clear and blemish-free - although sometimes I slip up and forget to remove makeup, which causes me days and days of spots.
Burt's Bees have introduced me to a new element in my routine which can replace the toner - the Intense Hydration Facial Water.
Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Facial Water is essentially a 'drink' for your skin - it helps dehydrated skin restore lost hydration and prepare your skin for the moisturiser. The formula is scientifically shown to improve the texture of your skin and balance its pH - which gives skin a refreshed look and feel. The product contains no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) which can irritate the skin.
Made from 99% natural ingredients, Burt's Bees Facial Water has Clary Sage which is known for soothing skin properties - I have read articles which say sage is used for anti-ageing, to help oily skin, and reduce blemishes.
I have been using the facial water for several months now and I enjoy the feeling on my skin when using the product - dab the liquid on to cotton wool and rub all over your face. The water absorbs quickly, soothes and moisturises the skin ensuring it is ready to soak up all the goodness of your moisturiser. It's an excellent addition to your skincare routine and can easily replace the toner - remember to follow up with your favourite moisturiser and enjoy the feeling of soothed, soft skin!
