    Utique luxury face oil

    As we get older, our skin needs that little extra help. A great way to put the moisture back into our skin is by using the Utique Luxury Face Oil by FM WORLD.

    Utique luxury face oil

    Over the years, many people have possibly avoided putting oils on their face, especially if they are prone to oily skin. The thought of adding more oil would surely cause more issues?

    Contrary to belief, using a face oil that has so many benefits in its ingredients has become hugely popular over the years.

    Celebrities and make up artists are also known to be using such products in their daily skin care routine.

     

    Finding the right face oil

    It’s important to shop for the right type of face oil. Using one that has top quality ingredients that won’t block the pores and leaves the skin feeling loved is essential.

    If you’ve ever tried any of the FM range, you will already know of their affordability and quality when it comes to the selection of products.

    The Utique Luxury Face Oil is no exception.

    It is designed to rejuvenate, moisturise and nourish every skin type. If you are looking for a glowing, soft and youthful complexion, the luxury oil is definitely worth a try.

    Whilst some may see that it’s not the cheapest bottle of face oil on the market, having tried several others, I have found this one to be the best and most suited to my skin that’s neither dry nor greasy on a good day.

    It works as a fantastic base for make up as well as applying just before bedtime to re-build the cells of the skin as we sleep.

    Our skin can become very dry from daily washing, especially if using harsh soaps. I would recommend our facial wash in the Aloe Vera range for a gentle cleanser.

    This product is great for removing make up and is gentle on the skin.

    One of the great things that I have found with the face oil is how easy it is to apply with the pipette style glass bottle.

    This ensures that you only apply a small amount that’s needed without any waste.

    If you’re a first time user of any face oil, you will notice the difference instantly. Even those who have skin that isn’t particularly dry can benefit from using an oil.

    Suitable for men and women

    It’s not just a face oil for women either. Men can benefit from using it too as it’s a great product to use on the face after shaving.

    Men are taking just as much care in their skin care routine as women and with an oil that soaks in quickly and doesn’t feel greasy, I would recommend this face oil to anyone.

    A face oil that contains no preservatives, no artificial colouring and no parabens, the Utique Luxury Face Oil is created with the highest quality certified oils.

    A mixture of the right ingredients

    With a combination of 13 different natural oils and essential oils it is clear why this oil benefits in so many ways.

    Ingredients of Neroli, Argan, Jojoba, Sunflower, Soybean, Castor, Evening Primrose, Jasmine and Geranium to name a few, its easy to see why our skin benefits by using this product.

    The Utique Luxury Face Oil prevents the formation of fine lines and capillaries with its Neroli oil ingredient.

    Fine lines are inevitable as we age so by using the face oil regularly, this can help slow down the process.

    Argan oil is good as an anti- wrinkle and contains rejuvenating properties.

    Jojoba oil is good for closing the pores and moisturising the skin whilst improving its firmness. This ingredient also helps to minimize wrinkles and fine lines.

    We all thrive for elasticity in our skin and with the help of sunflower oil, the skin does feel like it has more movement and no longer feels tight or dry.

    Skin that is lacking in hydration will benefit immensely with using products that contain the ingredient Soybean oil.

    When our skin is exposed to the sun and outside elements, it is important we have a protective barrier and antibacterial properties.

    Castor oil will help to protect the delicate layers of the skin.

    Everyone loves Evening Primrose oil as it adds moisture and can help to soothe any irritations with dry or sensitive skin.

    Our skin naturally regenerates new skin so with the added ingredient of Jasmine oil, this will help support the skin cell renewal.

    If you are looking for cleansed and nourished skin whilst soothing any irritation, then the benefit of Geranium oil will work wonders.

    My story with Utique Luxury face Oil

     

    The first time I tried FM World’s face oil was during the summer of 2020.

    I’d recently had my first Covid vaccination and within a few days my skin around my eyes became extremely dry and very red.

    ©️fragranceswithlove.com

    A severe reaction left the skin around my eye looking and feeling burnt.

    To this day, I am still not sure if it was a reaction to the injection or something that I had eaten. Further vaccinations went without any issues.

    My skin looked and felt like leather. The skin around our eyes is so delicate and I was shocked by how one of my eyes in particular looked like it had been burnt by a product.

    I was desperate to replace the lost moisture as quickly as possible. My skin felt extremely tight, sore and sensitive so I purchased a bottle of Utique Luxury Face Oil as it felt it was a last resort.

    I had already tried so many other face creams such as E45 and Nivea but to no avail. If anything, these face creams left my skin stinging so I had to wash them off straight away.

    Within around 3-4 days of using the face oil and avoiding any eye make up for a few weeks, I was pleasantly surprised and relieved by how much the skin around my eye had improved.

    I no longer had the scaly, dry and tight skin as my lower lid returned to a bit more normality.

    From this day, I have continued to use the product, applying it first thing in the morning before I put make-up on and once again in the evening after using the Aloe Vera facial wash.

    I always feel that I need some moisture on my skin before I sleep and it is essential that women remove all traces of make up before bed.

    For healthier skin, give it some love.

    Exfoliating foot peel

    We often forget about treating our feet as part of a daily skincare routine but it’s just as important to look after our feet.

     

    What better way to take care of our skin than with a foot peeling mask.

    Exfoliating foot peel

    Forgotten feet

    Our feet spend so much time in socks and closed in shoes throughout the winter and cooler months, that we often forget to treat our feet.

    It’s not until we are home from work, jump in the shower and notice the dry skin forming on the heels and around the big toe.

    Both are common parts of the foot to suffer the most dryness.

    If you leave the skin on the heels for too long when they are so very dry, this can lead to cracked skin and trust me, this is very painful if it gets that far. Prevention is definitely better than cure.

    Our feet are important

    No one sees our feet during the winter and maybe that’s one of the reasons why we don’t bother to look after them as much as we do, say our hands.

    Many of us will be on our feet for a good while during the day when working.

    They do take the brunt of most things from being squashed into shoes or boots that are perhaps a little too tight to being the main part of our body that allows us to stand up for long periods of time.

    Showers and baths will of course clean the skin on our feet but as soon as summer arrives, we suddenly realise that our feet have been neglected as we see the dry and hard skin starting to form.

    Exfoliating foot peel

    Footwear and varnish

    Countless sandals, sliders and other footwear for the hot weather come out of the wardrobe.

    We’re excited to wear open toe shoes as the weather gets warmer, only to find that our feet are not looking as elegant and moisturised as we expected.

    There will be many women like myself who paint their toenails all year round.

    Some who only paint their nails during the summer, when they are wearing the appropriate footwear to show a summer colour off.

    We do tend to look after the parts of our body that are on show most of the time such as our face and hands.

    A skincare routine is essential in keeping the skin looking healthy, moisturised and hydrated.

    When our hands are on show we are very much aware of how they look, whatever job we may be in.

    Don’t forget your feet

    We can wash and moisturise them and use a pumice stone to remove excess dead skin cells which do work to a degree.

    Often the extra bit of care gets forgotten about as it all takes time and it’s often not classed as essential as our hands and face that people will see all the time.

    The skin does need to be prepped before using a pumice stone to get the best results, so usually after a bath or shower when the skin is soft enough to remove gently.

     

    A pumice stone will wear down each time it is used and the best way to use them is when they are wet.

    This will help the stone to glide across the calloused skin. Soaking your feet in warm water also prepped the skin and softens it to make it easier.

    Pumice stones are very affordable and commonly used.

    There is nothing wrong with using this method to soften the hard skin on your feet but you will notice that it will need to be carried out regularly to keep the skin soft and subtle.

    Using an exfoliating foot peel

    What are the benefits of using an exfoliating foot peel?

    There are so many brands on the market today, similar to face sheets, that it can be difficult to know which one to purchase.

    I have previously read reviews regarding the foot peel by FM World so I was keen to give it a try.

    When this little package is opened, it reveals two liquid sachets and two sock bags.

    The liquid is poured into the separate sock bags, one for each foot.

    Exfoliating foot peel
    ©️photo fragranceswithlove.com

     

    Any nail polish needs to be removed prior to using the exfoliating foot peel and with clean, dry feet, insert them into the bags.

    There is a sticky label to tape the bag snugly around the ankle for a secure fit.

    It advises to wear the bags for 60 to 90 minutes.

    A great excuse to sit, relax and watch TV or read a book.

    After the time has passed, remove your feet from the bags and rinse off the remaining liquid with water and pat dry.

    It takes between 4 to 7 days for the exfoliation to commence and will last for the subsequent 3 to 5 days.

    Having used this for the first time a few months ago, my skin felt wonderfully soft even before the exfoliating began.

    It gave me the chance to sit quietly as I wasn’t able to walk around with liquid bags on my feet and it felt very therapeutic being pampered at home.

    This product contains AHA/BHA acids which perfectly regenerate damaged epidermis.

    With a rich of complex natural ingredients, urea and allantion, it additionally moisturises. Just what our feet need.

    ■ The foot peel effectively removes calluses

    ■ Contain extracts of honey, opuntia, pear, passion fruit, lemon, grape and pineapple

    ■ The peel leaves the feet feeling perfectly smooth.

    ■ Recommended to use once a month.

    It’s a wonderful vision to watch the dead skin peeling away from your feet and gives a sense that a product is doing what it says it will do.

    When the peeling process had finished, my feet felt very smooth and hydrated.

    It gave me back the confidence to wear sandals again.

    With the added dash of colour to my toe nails, it felt wonderful to show off my feet, knowing that I no longer felt embarrassed about the dry skin on my heels and toes.

    In between using the exfoliating foot peel, I would recommend applying a body moisturiser to the feet at night.

    I recommend our Complete Care Ultra Moisturising Foot Cream

    This cream strongly moisturises even the driest skin. Thanks to its softening and smoothing ingredients, it is a  perfect accessory in your skin care routine for cracked heels. If used systematically, it reduces the thickened epidermis. ♦ with a high urea content ♦ with nourishing beeswax, shea butter and macadamia oil ♦ makes foot skin soft and supple again

     

     

    This product will aid in keeping the skin soft and supple in between treatments and costs £10.50

    Definitely the best foot peel that I have ever tried and one that I will definitely use again.

    Hydrotherapy sheet mask review

    Our face has spent so much time under a surgical mask over the past two years and contributes to one of the reasons why many of us have suffered with dry skin.

    What better way to look after our skin than to use a hydrotherapy sheet mask.

    Hydrotherapy sheet mask review

    It’s not just women who reach out for products to help with their skin.

    Today sees many men taking just as much care to use skin products and they’re not shy about using any either.

    We don’t use hydrotherapy masks as often as we should, I’m sure.

    A lack of time plays a huge part and then when we do decide to buy one, we’re undecided about which one to buy.

    There are so many available and they all do a similar thing. Hydrate, add moisture back into the skin and soothes any irritations.

    Through different times of the year we can all suffer from dry, flaky skin, even when we are on top of our game, when it comes to our own skin care routine.

    Sometimes, no matter how much we cleanse, tone and moisturise, it’s just not enough to keep our skin looking and feeling fresh, soft and glowing.

    Women in particular are very conscious of how they look and are always battling against the aging process.

     

    Personally, I feel we don’t need to. We all age differently and it’s a natural process.Our skin is unique.

    Some of it comes down to our genes, whilst other factors will be due to what we eat, drink and how much exercise we participate in.

    Whilst we can correct many of the factors by doing more, eating healthier and drinking plenty of water, sometimes our skin needs a little extra help.

    Hydrotherapy sheet masks are a quick and easy way to provide the skin with moisture and a boost of vitamins.

    Fontainavie Hydrotherapy sheet by FM World

     

     

    This product came onto the market during the first lock down in 2020.

    Great timing as thousands of us were forced to work from home or trying to find other things to do and having lots of nights in.

    A face mask, accompanied with a glass of wine whilst we were left to socialize in front of a screen, on zoom with friends, seemed to go down a treat.

    We finally had the time to pamper ourselves. Hair masks were used, our nails painted and we kept up with our skin care routine.

     

    Hydrotherapy sheet mask review
    FM world gel varnish – Blinding Neon

    During that year, we had a beautiful summer. We enjoyed several months of hot weather and had the time to sit outside and enjoy the garden with family.

    We soaked up the sun’s rays, had golden skin and felt relaxed and healthy.

    One of the consequences though of sitting in the sun for too long is dry and dehydrated skin.

    Celebrities wear sun screen protection as part of their daily skin care routine and it’s a good habit to get into.

    I decided to purchase one of the hydrotherapy sheet masks.

    My skin felt tight, lacking in shine and no amount of moisturiser seemed to replenish the lost moisture that my skin was feeling.

    How to use the Hydrotherapy sheet mask

    It’s important to do your daily skincare routine as normal and cleanse the skin first before applying the mask.
    We want to make sure the skin is at its cleanest before we apply our sheet, by removing any grease or dirt from the skin.

    Another useful tip is to apply a toner before applying the sheet mask.

    FM World have a wonderful toner within their Aloe Vera range.

    Hydrotherapy sheet mask review

     

    This will balance out the skins pH level and will help to open the pores.

    When we have open pores, this gives the moisture from the sheet mask the chance to soak deeper into the skin.
    The 150ml Facial Toner is a part of the Aloe Vera Collection. It restores the proper pH value of the skin and ensures the right level of moisture.
    It is in the form of a delicate mist that is convenient in use. It contains no alcohol and is hypoallergenic.
    It has quadruple soothing power: aloe, panthenol, bisabolol and jasmine extract.
    The aloe included in the toner soothes irritations, has moisturising and softening properties.
    It reduces redness, helps to restore tissues, fights against free radicals and leaves the skin with more elasticity.
    It’s important to remember that by using the hydrotherapy sheet mask, it won’t exfoliate the skin. You can use a separate product called Aloe Vera Peel Off Facial Mask. 

    Hydrotherapy sheet mask review

     

     

     

    What’s wonderful about the hydrotherapy sheet is that it is dripping in moisture.

    At first, the sheet looks far too big to fit anyone’s face.

    Once it’s on and gently smoothed onto the skin, there is enough sheet to fit the face and the neck.

    Sit back, relax with some music and leave the mask to do its magic for 15 minutes.

    Once you take the sheet off, use the excess for your neck. There’s plenty of moisture in one sheet so add some to this area too.

    Rinse your face with cool water, gently pat dry and feel the instant benefit of smooth, hydrated and glowing skin.

     

    It is recommended to use face masks around once a month but we all know how busy we get and this isn’t always possible.

    Just like our daily skincare routine, we need to get into a habit of using other products because we will certainly see the benefit later on.

     

    HYDROTHERAPY HYALURONIC SHEET MASK 20 ml

    From the FM World website :

    Occlusive properties of the sheet significantly increase the penetration of nutrients into the skin. Thanks to this, they perfectly tighten it, smoothing out fine lines, intensively nourish and effectively regenerate. • rich in active moisturising ingredients • provides a beautiful and healthy look • ensures visible skin rejuvenation effect.

    Ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Saccharide, Isomerate, PEG-12 Dimenthicone Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid, Methyl Gluceth-20, Allantoin, Sodium PCA, Urea, Glucine, Lactic Acid, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Polyacrylate, Crosspolymer-6, Glucose, Polysorbate 20, Chlorphenesin, SODIUM Benzote, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Citrate, Parfum

    After using the hydrotherapy sheet on three or four occasions, I noticed that the fine wrinkles around my eyes had improved and appeared smoother.

    These won’t be visibly noticeable with the first time you use the sheet so it’s good to keep using regularly for maximum benefit.

    As we get older we are constantly fighting the signs of ageing.

    The first sign that many of us see, for both men and women, are fine lines around the lips and the eye area.

    Skin needs more of an intense moisturiser than many of the products that we see and purchase in shops and online can give.

    They often sit on the surface of the skin and don’t penetrate to the deeper layers.

    By using a facial sheet regularly, this will enable the skin to keep its elasticity and prevent it from drying out from elements such as the hot weather and central heating through the winter.

    When the skin is moisturised, women will find that their make up will sit better, be much easier to apply and will last much longer.

    For the men, this will give their skin the opportunity to stay moisturised, especially if they work outdoors in all weathers.

    It will also prevent the skin from tightening and feeling uncomfortable.

    Price : £11.00 A very reasonable price even if you use once a month.

    Celebrity skin care products

    Just like celebrity endorsed perfumes, celebrity skin care products are also popular.

    It’s a well-known fact that celebrities have been endorsing perfumes for several years now.

    Celebrity skin care products

     

    As a nation, we are very much influenced by products that are available online and in the shops that have a celebrity backing to them.

    It’s a way of giving us confidence in making such a purchase when we know that a well-known celebrity is behind the product.

    Supporting the influencers

    Imagine this. Your friend that lives down the street from you starts to make a business creating soaps.

    You are all for it in the beginning and supportive and perhaps they give you some of their products for free to try on yourself.

    They start creating more products as their business starts to get a little busier and then they start trying to sell you the same product that you recently received for free.

    We are all too familiar with the memes online that show a person such as your friend starting a new business or being successful in their interview and being offered the job.

    Celebrity sun care products

     

    They announce it to all of their followers on Facebook and get 25 likes and 10 comments on their post.

    As we scroll down our news feed, we then see a celebrity that has endorsed the latest fragrance.

    Somehow they have received over 3000 likes and over 100 comments.

    It is very much a case of those that have influenced us over a long period of time will always win the majority of votes.

    Of course, we don’t know the celebrities personally yet we are willing to support them in new ventures.

    We will happily pay more often than not, a high price for the latest perfume or cosmetic product.

    More than we usually would for our usual and more affordable Rimmel or L’Oréal brands.

     

    The power of the celebrity status

    It may even be a product we don’t particularly want or need but because of the celebrity endorser behind it, this is enough to entice us to part with our money.

    I very much doubt we will ever see a break in this cycle as long as there are celebrities to influence us.

    Celebrities also know that there will be customers that they have influence over.

    Celebrity skin care products
    Celebrities have a huge influence over their customers

    So there is never any question about if their product will sell enough quantities of in order to keep it on the shelves.

    Alongside endorsing perfumes and aftershaves, many celebrities also have their own skincare range.

    We often look at celebrities, especially women, who seem to look perfect in every way. Gorgeous glowing skin and full of radiance. What’s their secret ?

    We question what products they’re using in order for us to benefit in looking as radiant as they do.

     

    Celebrity skin care products

    Many celebrities don’t actually look their age and perhaps this is not just part of the products they are using but the kind of lifestyle that they live too.

     

    A healthy lifestyle also plays a part in our exterior

    Personal trainers, healthier and more expensive food, no money worries and drinking tons of water. It all plays a part in how well we grow old and if we do grow old gracefully.

    Just the same as fragrances, celebrities don’t always wear the product that they endorse. They simply like the scent or the way their skin feels by using certain products.

    Like the public, celebrities are also influenced by the texture of a product, the smell and how it makes them feel when using it.

    Added to the fact that the majority of the celebrities have a make up artist to assist when they appear on TV shows, concerts and TV adverts etc.

    Let’s take a look at some of the skin care products that are used by celebrities.

     

    Jennifer Aniston

    American actress, producer and spokesperson for Aveeno, a skin care company that work closely with skin conditions such as eczema, sensitive, dry and itchy skin and uses natural ingredients.
    Jennifer drinks tons of water as part of her skin care. She has also benefited from good genes when it comes to no wrinkles as she has aged, from her father and grandmother.

    Jennifer washes her face with Neutrogena facial cleansing bar and the Aveeno positively radiant daily moisturiser. She uses the Aveeno daily moisturising lotion which is hydrating for the skin.
    Celebrity skin care products

    Charlize Theron

    Being the face behind such an iconic perfume as J’adore, Charlize is no exception when it comes to beautiful glowing skin.
    Interesting to also learn that she always wear a spritz of perfume before she leaves the house and her ‘slice of luxury’.
    Charlize wears sunscreen protector and La Prairie Cellular Radience Emulsion which would set you back a few hundred dollars.
    Celebrity skin care products
    Alongside eating a healthy diet, attending Pilates classes and having a morning and nightie routine, Charlize also uses a rejuvenating serum by Mila Moursi and a moisturizing cream by La Mer called Crème de la Mer.
    Add in regular facials and you have yourself a beautiful glowing skin.

    Gwyneth Paltrow

    The American actress and businesswoman is a lover of exfoliating every day and uses a product by Goop.

    Another product by the same brand is Goop Glow morning skin superpower which is a food supplement packed with vitamin C and antioxidants.

    Another celebrity in favour of an oil based serum, Gwyneth uses Vintner’s Daughter which helps her dry skin and full of healing properties.

    Sunscreen seems to be a popular product for many of the celebrities as Gwyneth uses one by Coola called Mineral Cucumber Face.

    On the more affordable side is a product called Juice Beauty which is an instant eye lift algae mask.

     

    Selena Gomez

    Starting her career at the tender age of just seven, Selena also sings and has her one line of make up called Rare Beauty which she gives one percent of the profit to mental health awareness to support a charity following her own struggles with mental health.

    Moisturiser is definitely a top product when it comes to the celebrities skin care routine.

    Selena uses a rich moisturiser called the Dewy Skin Cream by Tatcha. Due to its thick consistency, you don’t need to use much.

     

    Celebrity skin care products

    Sometimes an overlooked factor when it comes to great skin and a great skincare routine is to remember to remove all traces of make up before going to bed.

    Selena is one of those women who sticks by this routine because her skin can break out in spots easily.

    Suffering from lupus, Selena knows the importance of keeping her skin looking fresh so she applies sunscreen every day.

    For this, she uses the Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30.

     

    Celebrity skin care products

    From her Rare Beauty range she also uses a set mist which is a 4-in-1 Prime & Set Mist, before applying foundation.

     

    Emma Watson

    Another lady who has been in the spotlight since she was young and winning one of the leading roles in the Harry Potter films, Emma takes care of her skin too.

    One of her go to products on a daily basis is a product called Cheek and Lip Stain by The Body Shop.

    Celebrity skin care products

    As part of her routine she always washes her face at night and keep her routine with cleanse, tone and moisturise before going to bed.

    Suffering with dry skin, Emma reaches out for a product called Evolue Firming Toner. It has minimal alcohol so it doesn’t make her face sting.

    She also exfoliates once a week using an exfoliator by Evolue called Resurfacing Grains.

    Body balm lotions

    Body balm lotions are a great alternative to perfume and suitable for those who wish to have a subtle scent without the need for spraying a bottle of fragrance.

     

    Body balm lotions

    There are some men and women who are not able to wear day today perfumes and aftershaves.

    So by using a body balm lotion , this gives the wearer the chance to still enjoy a subtle fragrance on their skin without having to spray a bottle of fragrance.

    The skin is left soft, moisturised and with a light fragrance that’s not overpowering like some perfumes can be, it is the perfect solution for day to day.

    If you use a body balm lotion  just before you go to bed then this has great advantages for your skin. It provides nutrients and moisturises through the night to leave your skin feeling regenerated and soft.

    Body balm lotion products are not just created for women either. Men also benefit from using them.

    Beauty experts recommend that you use a body balm lotion as part of your daily routine so that you do benefit and see the difference that moisturising your skin can make.

    Whilst its best to start such routines when we are younger for the maximum benefits, it’s never too late to get into the habit of using a bottle of your favourite to look after your skin.

    What does a body balm lotion do?

     

    A body balm will help protect the skin from the outside elements that cause dryness, itchiness and rough, cracked skin.
    Our hands are exposed every day and our feet are very prone to cracked heels when we are wearing sandals/flip flops  in the summer and our feet don’t have as much air to them during the winter months.

    A great tip for moisturising your feet

    If you are prone to cracked heels, one of the best solutions is to apply a moisturiser all over your feet and pop a pair of cotton socks on to sleep through the night in.
    The socks will help to keep the moisturiser on your feet without it coming off and onto the bed sheets.
    Cotton is a breathable material and also retains heat so this will help to penetrate the product and assist in the healing process when used regularly.

    The benefits of using body balm

     

    • Over time during cold and hot weather and as we get older, we lose elasticity that is naturally in our skin when we are young. The use of certain products, soaps, bath foams and lotions can dry the skin out over time if we don’t choose suitable ones to use.
    • Most body balm lotions contain moisturiser which will improve skin elasticity. When our skin comes into direct sunlight, this can reduce elasticity over time and therefore the moisture needs to be added back to regain a better appearance.
    • Our skin does a lot of repairing whilst we sleep so using a body balm lotion before going to bed will help repair any skin damage and replace the skins’ elasticity.
    • Used regularly, a body balm lotion will remove the dead skin cells, nourish the skin and allow the blood supply to regenerate new cells.

     

    • The skin also loses water through the night so it is essential that we replace and improve this by using a body balm lotion.

     

    Areas of the body that need TLC

    Dry hands, cracked heels, dry elbows and knees are very common issues to suffer from so when applying a body balm lotion before bed, this gives the product the chance to soak into the skin as we rest.

    Applying after a shower or bath is even more beneficial as this will help the pores to open to give the lotion the chance to soak into the skin and repair the damaged areas.

    We all crave a good nights sleep and what better way than to use a body balm lotion just before going to bed.

    Another benefit of wearing lotion at night is that it will repel mosquitoes so if you are on holiday and are prone to getting bitten, applying your favourite lotion will deter the critters from attacking you.

    The delicate scent applied to your skin can provide comfort and calmness in aiding a restful night sleep. You may also like pillow mist spray review for a better nights sleep.

    What is even more beneficial is for you to choose a body lotion that has ingredients such as lavender and chamomile which are naturally relaxing and therapeutic scents.

    Shimmering body oil review

    As we start to enjoy the warmer weather, one of my top summer products is the Shimmering Body Oil Gold Regenesis by FM world.

    Shimmering body oil
    A beautiful spray to add an extra glow to the skin

    The weather starts to improve as we head out of the Spring months and Easter approaches.

    We can start to get out into the garden to enjoy the long Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK for Easter.

    There’s nothing quite like sitting in the warmth of the sun, feeling the heat on our skin after the winter months have passed and feeling our skin glow as the sun beats down.

     

    Shimmering body oil
    Summer vibes bring out the natural glow in us

     

    Last year (2021) saw a new product by FM World and what a wonderful product to launch.

    shimmering body oil
    Moisturise , shimmer and drench your skin in anti-ageing grape seed oil, almond oil and vitamin E

    We all long for the summer glow and some may prefer not sit for hours in the sun, trying to get a summer glow on our skin.

    Here I take a look at a very popular product that is perfect for the summer vibe.

    A product that gives the skin a natural shimmer even when we may still be our natural colour from lack of sunlight.

     

    When it comes to feeling good within ourselves and confident in our skin, we almost feel like we should have a gorgeous tan to show off to others.

    It’s lovely to have a sun-kissed glow and we do feel so much better after some well needed vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin) after the cold months.

    We can still get a similar look and feel with this suitable product.

    The ingredients in Shimmering Body Oil

    The Gold Regenesis Shimmering Oil makes the skin look more radiant, silky-soft and long-lastingly moisturised.

    Grape seed oil smooths, regenerates and nourishes the skin, and, together with vitamin E, it slows down its ageing processes.

    Sweet almond oil improves its flexibility, preventing the occurrence of stretch marks.

    Sunflower oil strengthens the lipid barrier and shows normalizing properties.

    The benefits

    ◾ Thanks to gold particles, that beautifully underlines the skin tone to give an instant summer glow and healthy look to the skin

    ◾ Contains a valuable cocktail of rejuvenating components to bring the skin to life

    ◾ Quickly absorbed by the skin without leaving an oily layer on it so you can carry on with your day

    ◾ Perfect for every skin type

    How to use

    Only a couple of sprays are needed in order to achieve a wonderful glow to the skin and this product can be used all over the body, including the face.

    Those who already have a suntan perhaps from a holiday abroad or even in the UK, will have the added benefit of its shimmer.

    It really does show the skin off to its best and with every movement of the body, the light reflects to give the perfect shine and glow.

    I would recommend spraying onto the skin after a shower or bath to ensure the skin is free from any residue and has the perfect base to soak into.

    Exfoliated skin will always look better and if you’re planning on purchasing a bottle, you want your skin to appreciate it’s full potential.

    The same applies for any fragrances you spray on the skin too, like your favourite perfume or aftershave.

    Lightly spray where you want to see a natural shimmer and wait a few minutes before getting dressed to allow for the product to absorb into the skin.

    This way it will prevent any oils from coming into contact with your favourite outfit.

    Wash your hands after applying onto the skin so that any oil doesn’t transfer onto your favourite clothes.

    A great alternative to make up

    Many women prefer not to wear cosmetics during the warmer months as it can be too hot to layer the skin with added products.

    This product makes a great alternative when we still want to feel and look fresh-faced, without the need to apply a foundation or a bronzer.

    If you do still prefer a light base perhaps for an evening out, a light mist over the top of foundation works well too.

    I loved the shimmer it gave my skin especially on the collar bone and arms.

    The perfect accessory for summer days and nights to show off the skin and your favourite outfit.

    Shake the bottle well before use. This will help the particles separate.

     

    The scent

    Whilst so many suntan lotions have a very distinctive scent and one that I personally have never been keen on, the Shimming Body Oil is the complete opposite.
    It has a sweet, floral and fruity base and smells similar to FM 413 perfume that is inspired by La Vie Est Belle perfume.
    A delicate flower scent that stays on the skin and acts like it’s own body fragrance. Not overwhelming or heavy.

     

    Price: £24.00 from FM World

    Size: 100ml

    My rating : 9 out of 10

     

    The only downside to this product is that it doesn’t have any SPF so be careful when wearing during the daytime.

    The skin could potentially burn if you decide to sit out in the sun whilst wearing your shimmer oil.

    Ideally more suited for use during a summer’s evening when the sun’s temperature has dropped.

    This product is great to take away on holiday to spray onto your skin after being in the sun during the day.

    With added ingredients to add moisture to the skin, I loved the idea that I could apply a few sprays after being in the sun.

    You do get a wonderful shimmer when the skin already has a tan.
