I think it’s safe to say it is officially Christmas when the adverts start rolling in thick and fast. So with that in mind, it’s not premature to start shopping for gifts. One where you can’t go wrong is with Murad, the skincare specialists who have created five limited edition skincare gift sets. With Murad this is the proper deal because you know, world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Howard Murad - head honcho – knows his stuff.

Out of the five, I have been using the Hydrating Sensation set, which offers luxurious, deep hydration. One of the things Dr Murad strongly preaches is the importance of drinking water and eating a balanced diet including fresh fruit and vegetables, and believe me I abide by these things.

Over the past 3 or 4 months I have altered my diet cutting out sugary/fizzy drinks and replacing with water and fruit juices. However when skin is dehydrated, it’s because it’s depleted of moisture and usually the cause of this are things we cannot avoid like harsh weather and travelling on the tube where you are void of fresh air and daylight.

This collection contains Hydrating Toner 15ml, Hydro-Dynamic™ Ultimate Moisture 50ml and Hydro-Dynamic™ Ultimate Moisture for eyes 3.5ml – basically this kit will serve its purpose in these 3 simple items.

The moisturiser is my favourite. It works a treat at keeping my skin hydrated, soft and supple and well, it feels so nice to use – immensely luxurious and you can feel it working. The pot is a big size that will last a while even when used twice a day. The eye cream is light to use and instantly gives you a boost and the toner is wonderfully refreshing.

The kits are exceptional value for money starting at £36 and going up to £73.50 but being worth pretty much double those amounts so you’re getting brilliant skincare products for less than you’d normally pay. Hydrating Sensation is worth £123.30 and costs £73.50 in this collective bundle – a saving of nearly £50.

I love how Murad has come up with these clever gift sets – and it’s a good enough excuse to take your skincare seriously. Bag one of these beauties fast!

A cleanser I’ve been using for a couple of months is this one. It’s an organic, non-foaming and free-from-all-the-nasties kind of cleanser.

I am new to Sophyto but researching the brand I find it’s a professional grade certified organic skincare range licensed by from the UK Soil Association. Wow. It sounds like quite a big deal. Their products are certified cruelty free by PETA and gluten free (what does that mean? You’re not going to eat it, are you?) and ideal for all skin types so perfect for most delicate complexions and cleanses without harming or disrupting the skin.

The cleanser is soft and buttery in consistency, and easy to use with a warm, damp flannel. The Balancing Daily Moisturizer is fragrance-free, light-weight and can be used as a primer.

I only have one moan and it’s the scent of the cleanser which is described as ‘warm honey’ but smells like plastic. Ick. The moisturiser, however is fine.

Sophyto Purifying Silken Cleanser costs £13 for 100ml and the moisturiser is £18.95 for 50ml. Sophyto products are available on www.beautybay.com. Check www.sophyto.co.uk for more information and on stockists.
