Keep Skin Hydrated with Astral*

Hi lovelies, hope your having a lovely week! Today I wanted to bring to you a few products that have really been shining for me recently. I received some Astral goodies back in August and they couldn't have arrived at a better time. They had arrived for the week that I arrived back from Marrakech. My skin was in serious need of hydration after my skin had to put up the 45 degree heat over in Marrakech!

Astral is a company that provide face and body moisturisers within one product. The all-in-one product can be used for soothing skin after sun exposure, as a regular face and body moisturiser, to remove makeup and also as a night cream. Astral have only two products in the line. Astral Original which can comes in three different sized tubs (50ml, 200ml and 500ml) and Astral Soft which comes in a 100ml tube. Perfect for travelling.

Astral Original* (50ml and 200ml):

This moisturiser has seriously helped my flaking skin on my shins. I can guarantee every time I go on holiday, I come home and my shins always start flaking and peeling. I have been applying Astral Original to my legs and arms since receiving the product and I still continue to use it. Astral Original is thick in consistency and smells a little strange but it's not a horrible smell. It sinks into the skin so quickly which I love as I don't have to wait ages to get dressed. My legs have never felt so smooth and soft.

Astral Soft* (100ml):

This moisturiser is pretty much exactly the same as Astral Original but it's lighter in consistency. It's not as thick and applies very easily to the skin. It has the same smell as the Astral Original. I don't actually mind the scent. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but it's mine. I keep this in my going away bag and take it to my other half's every other week and use it when I get out the shower. I'm also going to centreparcs in November so it will be making an appearance there too!

All in all I absolutely love these moisturisers, stocked at major retailers such as Superdrug, Boots and Tesco and extremely affordable! (seriously all products under £8) I will always be a big fan from this year on! I'd love to see Astral expand their range, especially develop for babies! There is definitely a gap in the market for babies where Astral is concerned in my eyes! I would 100% recommend this product to anyone! It's great for normal skin! It's great for sensitive skin, it's great for everything!
