Les huilettes - Mon huilette night

Les huilettes 2.jpg

After a long and tiring day, we at The Amazing Blog can’t think of anything better than taking off our makeup and applying a soothing night serum. What makes  a night serum stand out for us from other skin care products is that they’re jam-packed with ingredients that nourish and brighten your skin while you sleep. We can never get enough of serums, as each one has specific properties to enhance the skin, such as anti-ageing from les huilettes we are referring to, of course, their very special mon huilette night serum. 

The brand was started in France in 2015 by two long-time friends, Pascale Gal and Claire Auzouy. Gal was a pharmacist with a degree in Aromatherapy while Auzouy had a background in luxury gastronomy. Gal desired to ‘return to a simpler beauty, essential and without sacrifice, summed up in a few principles and gestures’. The pair combined their unique experiences to start a cosmetics company that is 100 per cent natural, vegan, and botanical. Les huilettes is also committed to the environment and partnered with Up2green Reforestation, a French nonprofit organisation that helps replant fruit trees in communities affected by deforestation. 

The Mon huilette night serum is made for all skin types to smooth and enhance your skin’s suppleness. Overnight, it leaves your skin looking more radiant overnight and repairs any signs of anti-ageing such as wrinkles and skin dullness. The formula of a ‘plant synergy of essential and vegetable oils to be effective without fluff’makes the night serum stand out. Essential oils like Italian helichrysum have an anti-inflammatory benefit while myrtle and bourbon geranium have therapeutic aromatherapy effects to enhance positive well-being. Argan and avocado oils deeply moisturise and plump your skin while prickly pear cactus prevents the formation of premature wrinkles and lightens dark circles. These elements result in a light-feeling oil serum that melts evenly into your face and neck and doesn’t make you feel greasy. 

A little goes a long way, and you only need 3-5 drops per use. You should purposely but gently massage the serum into your freshly cleansed face for optimal results. However, for extra pampering and an at-home massage, we suggest you watch their serum application video here . On top of it all, rose and white flower leave a tangy and therapeutic scent on your face to relax you before bed.

Panier des Sens

Every girl loves a nice pampering product, and we girls at The Amazing Blog are no exception. Ideally I would have 3 baths a day in this hot weather (still can't believe its been 30 degrees here for past 3 days!)   but as I'm an on-the-go girl, showers are my only option during a hectic work week. So to make the most of my daily scrub down, I am treat myself to one of Ashleigh and Burwood's Panier des Sens shower gels. These shower gels are not your run of the mill, shop bought soaps. The delicately fragranced toiletries are paraben, silicone and aluminum free and, something we love, not tested on animals. Having just returned from Bergerac (France) these remind me so much of my stay.  They do indeed feel very authentic and French! The Panier des Sens range includes 4 natural fragrances - Relaxing Lavender, Soothing Provence, Energising Verbena, and Regenerating Rose. Also available in the Panier des Sens range is Body Lotion, Hand Cream, Hand Soap and Massage Oil so you can match up all your bathroom scents! My personal favourite scent is the Soothing Provence, it has a zesty citrus fragrance (the Relaxing Lavender comes in at a close second) and it leaves a light fragrance on your skin that's not too overpowering. Not only do they feel great on your skin, but their charming french-inspired designs will brighten up anyone's bathroom.

Priced at an affordable £10, the  Panier des Sens shower gels are a bathroom must have - pick one up online or find a shop near you!
