Happy July beauts, wow isn’t this year flying by. Love Island is finally getting good and the sun is out all day every day and I’m loving it. I was recently contacted by the brand MGC Derma to choose a couple of their products and let you all know how much I had loved using them. There is something I should tell you though…Their products contain a very controversial ingredient – cannabis.
Let me clear a few things up. I am so anti-drugs and to be honest I had to think for a while on whether to collab with this brand or whether my readers would actually enjoy this post. Therefore I did my research. You will find this brand on cult beauty – which made me also feel better about this brand being legit.
MGC Derma is an Australian skin care company who use the ingredient cannabidiol (CBD) a totally non-psychoactive compound derived from the cannabis plant, which shares part of the ‘fingerprint’ of our genetics, allowing the body to instantly recognise it – and utilise it accordingly. This ingredient is known for its healing, hydrating and anti ageing properties and therefore nothing to do with taking drugs – just amazing skin care.
As a 25-year-old I need to start thinking of protecting my skin and stop it ageing. I therefore chose 2 products from the MGC Derma Anti-ageing products. When the products arrived I thought the packaging was so beautiful, clean, and natural. I love the branding and really thought that this was high-end quality skin care.
CBD Neck & Décolleté Recovery Serum
I always use moisturiser on my face day and night but I don’t really tend to moisturise the rest of my body each day. Your neck and decolletage however are really delicate areas and really where I should take just as much care too. I decided to choose the CBD Neck & Décolleté Recovery Serum (£80) and have been using it for the past week. My skin feels so much softer and more hydrated. I never realised how dry my skin was in this area until I started to use this product. I now use it every time I get out the shower. The pump applicator is really handy and produces the right amount of product with just 1 pump. I hope to see more positive results the longer I use this product. Also how pretty is the rose gold detail on the bottle?!.
CBD BB Concealer Repair Cream SPF 20
I think it was fate that I got this product. It’s officially summer and I hate wearing foundation. I really wanted something lightweight and light coverage to cover blemishes and protect my skin in the sun. This is THE BEST BB cream I’ve ever used. My foundation has now gone back in my make-up drawer til October. The CBD BB Concealer Repair Cream SPF 20 is lightweight, easy to apply with your fingers, and evens your skin tone. When I first saw it I thought it was too dark but it blended seamlessly and lasted all day. I can’t wait to use this product on holiday and for work. I also have tried applying blusher and bronzer over the top and it sits perfectly! I’ll definitely be repurchasing this product.
I would really recommend this brand. Its controversial but what isn’t in 2018?!. I love their skin care and I can’t wait to explore it more and try some of their other products like the CBD & Hyaluronic Facial pH Balance Toner.
