One of the things I love about skincare testing is being able to put products through their paces when my skin is less than at it’s best like through illness, that is exactly what I have done with the following Angela Langford products that came to my saviour through a particularly nasty bronchitis and cold that left my skin absolutely ravaged and desert dry.
Angela Langford isn’t a new brand to the blog, in fact I wrote about her brilliant personalised skincare sample service a few years ago and I really think that being able to try personalised recommendations for your skin type before committing to full sizes really makes the brand stand out from others. You may have recently spotted Angela’s appearance on the TV programme Masterchef as a guest judge, that is because Angela was a contestant on the programme herself and as well as creating her own skincare is a talented cook, hence the tagline your recipe for good skin. As well as her love of cooking Angela’s line is all about wholesome natural ingredients that are good for your skin, nourishing it with oils and butters such as Chia, Avocado and Pumpkin, many of Angela’s ingredients are literally good enough to eat.
I have been testing three products from the range, all with absolutely wonderful ingredients and results, this is a brand to know about. Since having had my baby girl three weeks ago my skin has continued to be very dry and dull, I think that is partly down to hormonal changes and partly down to the fact that breastfeeding makes me feel constantly thirsty and dehydrated, these products have been perfect for tackling the dryness and restoring some glow, making me feel a little more human despite the sleepless nights.
The Freshen up hydrating toner is a lovely hydrating spritz, perfect for using before oils and balms. This toner has a lovely combination of floral waters such as rose, geranium and neroli with glycerine (seals in moisture), comfrey and aloe vera. This is a very refreshing product and can be used any time during the day to perk up dull skin. I love rose based toners and I am very impressed with the ingredients in this one, as it offers a little bit more than most. After the toner I like to apply a few drops of the Bloom and Glow Radiance restoring face oil, a deliciously rich oil with a spicy scent that leaves the skin glowing and bright. I knew this blend would be great for when my skin is dry as it contains rosehip, chia seed, squalane and evening primrose oils, it feels lovely and nurturing on the skin but is still well absorbed. This is such a wonderful product, perfect for skin that is very much in need of a boost, the scent is intoxicating and soothing all at once. The final product is the Rest and Regenerate night balm which is a really rich treatment balm full of plant oils such as avocado, macadamia and pumpkin which are all perfect for regenerating the skin overnight with their high omega content. I use a small amount and massage well in to the skin, as I have been feeling very dry I have also been using it during the day whilst at home and it really brings relief to parched skin making it smoother and more comfortable.
Angela’s products are an absolute delight and are great value for money, if you are new to the brand take a look at the sample service so you can be introduced to the best skincare choices for your skin. Have you tried Angela Langford skincare?
