I am all about getting down with a good skin care regime. I’ve never had awful skin, but it’s always been a bit spotty and blotchy and it’s a big fan of gifting me a whopping zit or ginormous lurker just before a big event. When you’re wearing make up every single day (except those lazy Sundays we all lay in wait for with no make up and puled up hair all day long – can I get an amen?!) it’s so super important to make sure you take extra good care of your skin. Plus we gotta get those selfies on fleek!

Recently my bestie Sarah has started working with a brand called NU Skin who, among many other things, offer some of my favourite skin care options on the market – zit-busting mud masks, wrinkle-banishing eye-cream and deeply-softening moisturisers to name but a few.

I’ve sat down with Sarah to pick out the top 5 best skin care products on offer… They all produce amazing results and get you glowing before you even get to the make up stage! The best bit? I’ve got a cheeky discount code you can use when ordering with Sarah. Quote EMILYJANE10 to get 10% off your order.

Take a look at my picks below…


1 – Epoch Glacial Marine Mud Mask – £25
Favoured by TOWIE’s Fern McCann and Kirk Norcross as well as number 1 beauty Michelle Keegan, this mask is amazing at drawing out impurities, removing dead skin and nurturing skin. It’s full of minerals and goodness which our skin loves, including zinc, magnesium and silver! You just smooth it on in it’s dark grey form, then once it’s all dried to the lovely pale minty grey colour (about 15-20 mins) it’s time to wash it off. Use it a couple of times a week to draw out the toxins, then banish them! What I love about this mask is that it shows you how it’s working with oils visibly coming to the surface and being absorbed by the mask – I always end up with a very speckled nose as that’s where I have lots of blackheads and spots. Cry. I have to say though this really helps to make skin feel fresh, clean and happy! 🙂

2 – Polishing Peel Skin Refinisher – £30
Polishing Peel actually works to resurface and polish yout skin to immediately deliver fresh, glowing complexion. This is what you would usually expect from a professional microdermabrasion treatment and this amazing product is clinically proven to be equivalent to this, but all from the comfort of your own home, for a fraction of the price, and at any time you’d like! With pumpkin enzymes and volcanic clay, like the Mud Mask, this product is full of natural ingredients that your skin loves! When I’ve used it I’ve found it to work just like a face mask, leaving skin instantly feeling fresher, younger and happier. However it takes a fraction of the time – less than 5 mins and it peels off to leave you with a whole new face! (Disclaimer, not an actual new face, you won’t be Beyoncé, but it will FEEL like you are!!).

3 – Moisture Restore – £40
So this is just a really flipping good, luxurious moisturiser. It’s great for dry, senstive or mature skin with pistachio oil to nourish, aloe vera to soothe and vitamin E (the BEST thing in the world for skin in my – and my mum’s – opinion. Mother knows best!) to condition. It’s great when it’s really cold and your skin feels cracked and sad, or when it’s really hot and you might have a spot of the face peels from sunbathing. For day to day it’s also a fab nighttime moisturiser – slather it on before bed and wake up with skin feeling younger, restored and so so moisturised!

4 – Epoch Blemish Treatment – £15
Bye bye blemishes! I’ve been using a very similar gel from Clinique, but when mine ran out I switched over to this one and it’s just as effective, but cheaper! It’s got a bunch of magical ingredients to clean pores, reduce redness, soothe skin and generally sort those spots out! This is great for people who have frequent blemishes and red spots – as you can see from the before and after pics (only 2 days!) it does a stellar job! I use it for larger pimples and find that they’re noticeably reduced, if not gone overnight! Use this after you’ve cleansed your skin for the day. Be aware that it can dry the skin out if used too much, so use sparingly and with a good moisturiser!

5 – Tru Face IdealEyes – £45
Ok, so I’ve not used this one personally, but HELLO MIRACLE WORKER! The images above show how the eyes are looking after just 2 weeks of use and it looks like the clock has just been turned back on this lovely ladies face! While I’m sure there’s a handy bit of good lighting involved, it’s clear that this cream has had a huge impact on lines and puffiness. It’s proven to brighten, reduce signs of fatigue, puffiness and fill lines. what’s not to love?! It works short term as seen in the images above over 2 weeks, but it also works in the long term too – eliminating the pigments that cause dark circles.

So there you have it, some amazing, proven to work products. While they’re a little more expensive than your drugstore brands like Nivea and Simple (the devil products – don’t use these!), they’re such a high calibre of product I would put them in the realm of Clinique and Clarins.
