Angela Langford – Your Recipe for Great Skin
If you are a watcher of Masterchef then you will remember Angela Langford. She did really well, losing out on a last day place in the Final having been in a cook-off with the eventual winner, Ping Coombes.
Angela Langford made so many memories, but more importantly made best friends from the show – and her love of cooking continues not only in her food festival appearances, or her pop-up restaurant in Somerset, or her TV appearances on the BBC, but in her skincare.
She was kind enough to send me a bottle from her Bloom & Glow radiance restoring face oil. It smells amazing, with chia seed and sea buckthorn blended together to deliver high levels of essential fatty acids, vitamins & antioxidants – it improves skin’s elasticity, calms inflammation & restores radiance.
Well that’s what it says on the website. But you are here for my opinion, so here it is.
I love the orange shade of the oil, it is such a bright, happy colour. I had a read through the reviews on Angela’s website and I agree with most of them. I’ve tried the oil in different ways. In the morning, at night, both, and even under make-up, well mixed in with foundation.
I have good skin, I’m lucky, I know my Mum who is 87 has amazing skin and certainly doesn’t look her age. I’m lucky to have inherited this – well at least so far so good. I have a lazy skin care regime, I always apply eye cream at night and since trying this face oil, I’ve been consistent-ish. It’s so easy to use and anything left on my hands I rub into them and that’s it.
I don’t wear too much make-up these days but on the times I have recently I’ve added a couple drops of the face oil and mixed it together with my foundation whilst applying. It seems to make my foundation go on more evenly and if possible more smooth, but certainly not greasy and there is a definite glow.
I use it on my face, neck and the decolletage area and I’m really pleased with the results.
Not only do you get beauty products, butAngela Langford kindly includes a couple of recipe cards, which you would expect from such a great cook.
Cucumber and avocado soup, which sounds amazing, “Cucumber soothes and brightens your skin. It is rich in omega 6 and it can help stimulate cell regeneration and helps keep skin retain moisture. It can reduce dark circles ans skin pigmentation. Whilst the Avocado is rich in vitamins and can help to brighten tired looking skin, bringing luminosity to your complextion.”
Roasted Chia Seeds and Aubergines “Chia seed oil is an amazing source of omega 3 making it a real multi-tasker: it’s great for treating all skin types- helping repair skin that has sun damage, fine lines or scars; through the balancing oilness and improving the appearance of open pores.”
If you want more information on all of Angela Langford’s products then you can pop on to her website. You can email them for skin advice if you are not sure of what your skin needs. They have a wide range of products available and you can even buy gift vouchers or make up a hamper which would make a lovely gift for someone special in your life or just for a thank you.
