Mama Mio Gorgeous Glow Balancing Facial Swipes
There are many different ways to wake up your face in the morning. You can splash it with water. Use a gentle foaming cleanser. Have a good old swoosh with a muslin cloth. But we're really rather enjoying these, from Mama Mio. Although targeted at 'problem skins' - hormonal breakouts and pregnancy acne, for instance - they have a really 'lively' scent which is definitely a wake-you-up smell. With organic aloe vera juice and natural glycerine, they don't strip skin - hence the 'Balancing' name. Actually, there are moisturising elements: evening primrose, sweet almond, avocado and olive oils, which leave skin comfortable.
But at the same time, if you do have troubled skin, there's a sort of 'camphoraceous' smell, from anti-bacterial tea tree, along with antioxidant-charged green tea leaf extract.
It's a brisk way to start the day - but leaves skin perfectly 'prepped' for moisturiser or your SPF day cream.
And it might just have you thinking, 'who needs coffee…?'
