Bringing my skin back to life with Pai Skincare

A new season brings a new skincare routine for me as my skin begins to feel dry and lacking hydration in the summer months. Pai Skincare is a complete new brand for me, we use their baby skincare on Joshua so it was inevitable that I'd find some products to try for myself. I started with the basics for any skincare routine, a cleanser, facial oil, serum and moisturiser and as my skin takes a slight battering in the heat, despite my use of factor 50, the only thing giving it some life at the moment are four products from Pai. 

Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser £30.00
If your skincare routine doesn't start with a good cleanser, you need to have a re-think. I love a really creamy cleanser, I want it to glide over my skin, remove all the dirt and grim I've collected during the day and leave my skin feeling super fresh. The Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser is perfect for this and it comes with a skin cloth to use too. The gentle cleanser is brilliant for dry and sensitive skin and the alcohol and detergent free formula helps maintain my skin's natural oil while the hydrating properties bring my skin back to its best, morning and night. The handy pump action tube means it's a doddle to use in the shower with wet hands too! 

Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil £24.00
I'm an avid user of facial oil and I urge anyone who doesn't already use an oil to add one to their routine because it makes such a difference. I recently wrote a post on three facial oils to try and mentioned how the one everyone raves about from Pai is the one I want to try next. The Rosehip Biodegenerate Oil is a must have beauty product and having used it the last six weeks, I now get the hype. The multi-tasking oil helps condition skin, improve firmness, boost elasticity and reveal a smoother skintone. It's bladddyyy fab and my skin is lapping up all it's goodness. This would be a brilliant oil for anyone stepping into them for the first time. Pai say: 

In the early days of Pai, we only used rosehip oil as an ingredient in our Chamomile & Rosehip Calming Day Cream - but we noticed the market was full of organic, cold-pressed rosehip oils that were pale and smelt bad. This isn't how Rosehip Oil should be!

We wanted to create an Oil that was more effective, fresher and longer-lasting, so we use volcanically sourced CO2 supercritical extraction to derive a unique blend of Rosehip fruit and seed oil. It's more expensive than cold-pressing but it’s the gentlest way to extract these incredible oils and it allows us to preserve the complete properties of the plant without oxidation or contamination. The result is a beautiful deep orange Oil, packed with twice the regenerative sterols and five times more carotenoids than your average cold-pressed rosehip seed oil.

Back to Life Hydration Serum £42.00
After facial oil, I love serum. Even if I somehow manage to miss out everything else, I will always use a serum as they make my skin feel so subtle. The Back to Life Hydration serum is one of Pai's latest products and it helps skin by keeping it feeling happy, hydrated and settled. Over the last six weeks my skin feels softer and I look more radiant if I do say so myself. The serum has a blend of three indigenous Australian berries which are rich in antioxidents which make them perfect for your skincare. There is also a low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid which helps skin look plump which I'm a big ol' fan of. This one is 10/10 on the serum scale for me.

Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream £36.00
As if my hydrating serum wasn't enough, I've been pairing it with the Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream. I may not eat Avocados but they do do wonders for my skin. The moisturiser is like butter but not in a bad way, it's still light and soaks into skin with no residue. The ingredients deeply hydrate your skin, calming any sensitivity and leave it oh so soft. It's pricier than some on the market but the mix of ingredients and the results I get from it make it worth it for me. 

After seeing such great results from the four products in this post, I really want to try more. I have my sights set on the Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream next.
