Introducing F.O.Y. Skincare

The F.O.Y. skincare range was originally developed to provide post-operative treatments for patients undergoing surgical and non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Standing for Fountain Of Youth the idea was that F.O.Y. products would help to prolong results long after patients had been discharged from the clinic.

Formulated by a team aestheticians, skincare scientists and dermatologists in 2015, there are now ten skincare products in the range, which is targeted towards mature skin types. I was very kindly sent eight products range to test out and I have to say both myself and my mum, who also became a willing guinea pig, were impressed.

Anne Semonin The Daily Musts Review

It feels like I’m getting through some serious face masks these days! I think it is because the nights are getting longer and I love getting home from work, throwing on my PJs and having a serious pamper while I swoon over Poldark, get infuriated at The Apprentice candidates or complain about how the X-Factor is rigged and I’ll never watch it again!

The Anne Semonin The Daily Musts Mini Coffret (RRP £24, Libbie Club price £19.20) is a great set of face masks designed to combat any skincare woe. Consisting of a mineral mask, an exfoliating mask, a gel mask, and a cream mask – all with different effects on the skin – there is something for every skintype or concern. Each of the masks is available to buy individually in a larger size, but they’re pretty pricey at £42 each, so this pack is an ideal way to test each one and see which one meets your needs. They are also great if, like me, your skin changes through the month. In each pot there is enough product to get 2 or 3 uses, but as they aren’t resealable I’d recommend using some cling film to keep them from drying out.

No coincidence that it is also time for my Pink Parcel delivery, which is packed full of all my monthly period needs alongside a handful of other beauty and lifestyle goodies to help you through the week. So what is inside the October box?

The Library of Fragrance Jasmine

The Library of Fragrance is a unique way to experience scents, each one a simple, single note which is instantly recognisable and evokes strong memories.

I’ve tried a number of scents from The Library of Fragrance – Fresh Ginger, Gin & Tonic and Thunderstorm being favourites – but my latest is Jasmine (30ml,(Libbie Club price £14), a scent so true to life I was instantly reminded of the beautiful Jasmine plant I owned many years ago and which sadly didn’t survive a house move. Ever since I’ve always longed to be surrounded by the scent of Jasmine again, but until now had never found anything that came close to the real thing.
