As many of you know I am a huge fan of SBC and Jasmine and Evening Primrose Gel is another problem solving product from the range.
SBC are a british company who specialises in making skincare gels, they also make beautiful shower products, bodycare and skincare they are a brand that I have featured many times on the blog. Jasmine and Evening Primrose Oil Gel is a gorgeous floral scented gel which is able to balance dry and oily skin types, it is very moisturising with no sticky or greasy feel to it. Being a gel it sinks into your skin very quickly making it easy to use as a body moisturiser and get dressed without having to wait for ages!
Jasmine and Evening Primrose is particularly good for ladies during our hormonal times, I tend to get achy and uncomfortable and I find this gel is perfect for that time. I use it on my bust and it is also good for tummy massage. Evening Primrose contains high levels of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) which is excellent for skin elasticity and also known for reducing symptoms of PMS and helping symptoms of the menopause. GLA is a fatty acid that regulates hormones and inflammation in the skin, I have found that using this in conjuction with SBC Propolis Gel has helped to calm and soothe my eczema. If you suffer with eczema you may find that Evening Primrose supplements would be beneficial to you because of the high levels of GLA. Starflower (Borage) has also been added to this gel which is another good source of GLA, it is also ionized + and – so they can be used with any galvanic machines that need a conductivity gel.
The scent is heavenly, Jasmine is a heady floral I find very uplifting. I am a great believer in aromatherapy and find this gel very enjoyable to use. I have also used it when I have found that my skin on my face has been dry, as I said before this one is a great balancer. It is a great mix with Collagen gel too, SBC gels are fantastic to blend or layer together, so for a real moisturising treat I use both face and body. You really can tailor make the range for your specific needs and create your own blends. Another good mix would be Jasmine and Lavender, if you have heat in your skin Lavender helps to repair your skin as well as making you feel calmer! You can mix the gels with body lotions if you like rather than layer if you are short on time, that is an excellent way of incorporating the gels into your routine without taking ages. Also brilliant as facial masks, leave a thick layer on your skin for 10-15 minutes and it will all sink in. I sometimes use them as a moisturiser in the summer over a serum or oil which suits the oily skin on my face, they are so versatile there isn’t a wrong way to use them. QVC do a lot of great value sets with varying sizes from 100ml to 1 litre so they are economical, Jasmine and Evening Primrose Oil gel is also available from http://www.sbcgels.co.uk starting at £9.50 for 100ml.
Till next time,
