Rodial STEMCELL Super-Food Range

I don't share much of my personal life on my blog, but I've certainly mentioned a fair few times that I was getting married. I'm delighted to say that on Saturday, after seven and a half years together I finally married Leon and I really couldn't be happier! As sods law would have it, a few weeks back my skin went into meltdown; it was all sore spots and dry skin like I've never known. Not what you want in the run up to a wedding!
 
I flew into a massive panic (which I'm sure didn't help things), but I was also very kindly sent the Rodial STEMCELL Super-Food range* to try out and just in the nick of time!
 
Rodial is adored by many a celebrity, and for good reason too. The range was founded with the aim of offering an alternative to surgery by targeting specific skin concerns with affective skincare that combines natural ingredients and scientific expertise; no mean feat! Every single Rodial product contains an anti-ageing and firming ingredient so you know that these guys mean business!
 
The Rodial STEMCELL Super-Food range is designed to nourish even the most driest skin *raises both hands* thanks to Omegas 3, 6 and 9, along with Marula Oil, and Vitamins A, B5, C and E. If that wasn't enough, the range also features PhytoCelTec Alp Rose stem cells which protect the skin, and boost skin regeneration. Pretty fancy sounding but does it work?
 
I've only previously tried the Rodial Glam Sticks, which are my all time favourite lip balms, so I was interested to see how the Rodial STEMCELL Glam Balm Lip (£19) measured up. It's rose scented which I absolutely adore, and a fairly soft texture, so you need to be a little careful that you don't scoop out too much. I've been using this every day since I got it and it's kept my lips really soft and moisturised. I tend to use a lip scrub at least once or twice a week, but I haven't felt the need to since I started using this. I'm not the biggest fan of lip balms in pots as they aren't that hygienic, but other than that I am really impressed with this balm.
 
I've often declared my love for facial oils, so was really excited to try out the Rodial STEMCELL Super-Food Facial Oil (£60 for 30ml). It is pricey, but it does go a long way. This is a lightweight oil which surprised me, but I found that it was the perfect consistency for using in the day, as most oils are a bit heavy and don't sink in that easily. Although it is quite lightweight, it really does pack a punch and made my skin feel super soft and more radiant. It also provides the perfect base for moisturiser and makeup. As this is so lightweight I would personally only use it in the morning as I like my evening oil to be more of a treatment and not need to be followed with a moisturiser.
 
Next up is the Rodial STEMCELL Super-Food Day Cream SPF15 (£49). This comes with a handy little pump which I think is such a good idea as you always get the right amount and there's no waste. I use two pumps of this and apply it a couple of minutes after the oil. Again, this is a lightweight formula but really nourishing and it sinks straight in, leaving my skin soft and supple. After a few weeks of using this, my skin looks so much healthier and radiant, with almost a glow to it. I also like that it contains SPF15 to further protect the skin.
 
I do love a good multi-tasking product so I was excited to try the Rodial STEMCELL Super-Food Glam Balm Multi (£35). I had to travel with work a couple of times this month so took this with me instead of a bursting toiletry bag. It comes with a little booklet detailing 100 uses which is really handy. It's a bit more liquid in texture than the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream which I usually use, but that's what I think makes it so versatile. While I was travelling I used it on my lips, cuticles, hair, as a moisturiser and over spots as a night time treatment. It really came in handy and its one of those products that you can just throw in your bag for any sort of beauty emergency.
 
I'm really impressed with the range and will definitely be checking out more from Rodial. They've just announced a new makeup line which looks really exciting and has Daisy Lowe as brand ambassador, so I think we'll be seeing a lot more of this brand!
 
Have you tried anything from Rodial?
