I was lucky to be introduced to Kristen Petrovich, the founder of the skincare brand Sjal, which is all about natural skincare, the products contain, no chemicals but the combination of minerals and gemstones have been engineered to get results.
I was searching for products to use ‘in lieu’ of a facial, at this time of year we are all busy and with the rounds of late nights and parties , I know my skin is the first place to reflect any excesses.
So if you are looking in the mirror and feeling grey and have no idea when you can fit in Christmas shopping, let alone book a facial, then run the shower and take 20 minutes to use these three products from Sjal.
First I put on the Pearl Enzyme, exfoliating mask, I normally find these exfoliators too harsh but this one uses crushed pearls to effectively clear all the build up and brighten your skin. It is pricey but as I often react to masks, I was happy to find one which my sensitive skin loved . If you are using a mask for the first time use it the night before, just in case.
On the night I am heading out I lather on Kashmir Saphir Perfecting Mask, I put it on after the shower and leave it on for ten minutes, while I am drying off. Again this is a mask, I can rely on not to cause any redness. After a day at work and running around after the kids I need something that evens out my skin tone and gives my skin a lift. If I do get a minute I use the stones to massage in the mask, that would be a good day normally I am doing homework with one of the kids, at the same time.
To finish off I use the Saphir Concentrate, I am addicted to this product it is a cross between a serum and an oil and it feels so good on your skin and it softens my lines and is absorbed quickly, so I can put my make on and am ready to head out.
I have searched and tried many products to find a cocktail that works, to give you that pre party glow.
These are the three that I use. I was gifted a sample of these but have since bought the full size products myself.
