Long Haul Skin Savers

by - 13:45:00

Travelling long haul isn't the most fun thing to do, but there's so much of this earth to see that's is pretty much necessary. With long haul flights comes a whole host of skin woes for me. I don't know about you, but my skin gets really dry and has a tendency to breakout. It's really quite awful and it happens no matter how well I take care of my skin during the flight. These three products are fairly new so I can't comment on their longterm effectiveness, but for now they're working a treat. 

First up I have the Antipodes Divine Face Oil. I purchased this a couple of weeks back in anticipation of my Kiehl's one running out. While the Kiehl's one is great, it isn't quite heavy enough to deliver a good amount of hydration in my opinion. The Antipodes one is noticeably thicker and I always find that my skin looks plumper come morning. Four drops massaged in is all it takes and so far i'm really enjoying using it. Since returning from the States, I've been using it by itself at night and mixed in with moisturiser during the day. Doing this has really banished the dryness from my a/c ravaged skin. It goes without saying that I'm really impressed with this oil and for the price I'm delighted. The Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate is £37, while the Antipodes offering is just (£19.99). Some will say that it's still not the most affordable offering, but it's widely stocked and you'll be able to find a discount code somewhere. I got mine from Lookfantastic with a whopping 30% off. 

Sticking with putting moisture back into my skin, I've also been using the Kiehl's Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment (£20). I've had my eye on this for years but I've always talked myself out of it for some reason or another. Thanks to Duty Free, we were brought together and I'm kicking myself that I didn't cave sooner. This super thick eye cream is everything I've been looking for. As the eye area is delicate, most eye creams are thin and tend to disappear into nothing. This one couldn't be more different. I know it's not ideal for make-up application, but when your eyes need some serious TLC, this stuff is the one.

Last but not least is the newest member of the gang. If you've read my Sephora Haul posts, you'll know that I picked up Kate Somerville's EradiKate Acne Treatment ($24). This has really great online reviews, so I had to give it a go. During my return journey I developed a few pimples on my chin, so I set about putting the EradiKate to the test. I've been applying it three times a day since Thursday and it's actually worked. The first thing I will say is that it's not an overnight miracle treatment. it's took around five applications to get the worst blemish to begin to calm down. On smaller blemishes however, it's cleared them up a treat. They're pretty much almost gone now and I'm really happy. I'm quite prone to having red marks left behind, but so far they've just vanished. 

And that pretty much sums up my little long haul skin fixes. As these products are fairly new to me, check back for in depth reviews in a few weeks time. Right now they're working for me, but anything can happen in a few weeks or months, so we'll see if I'm still loving them down the line.
