Best Blueberry Skincare Products Review

Best Blueberry Cleanser

Neogen Dermalogy is a Korean based skincare company that is committed to research and development. They focus on products that produce a true benefit for the skin. Their Blueberry Real Fresh Foam is specially formulated to provide a gentle but hydrating cleanse. It is made from blueberries and it produces a lovely foamy lather.

This product also contains a yeast so provides some natural fermentation benefits. Fermented skin care products are great if your skin is dehydrated or you have hyperpigmentation.

We loved this product.

Best Blueberry Facial scrub

Derman-nu has a simply amazing blueberry (and cranberry) facial scrub. It is great for all skin types. I found it to be gentle on my skin, and I do tend to have sensitive skin.
My skin had no excess oily feel after using. I do recommend this as a facial scrub.

It does have a strong smell but do not let that put you off - it really works.

Best Blueberry Face Mask (Best Value)

I have just started using this Mask.
( Note it is also an all in one cleanser)
So far I really like it - even with my sensitive skin, I have had no issues.

I have been using this as a face mask though.

However this product can be used for other purposes so it is the best value of all we reviewed. 

Best Blueberry Soy Night Recovery Cream

I have found this night creme to be one of the most luxurious I have used.
I love the subtle scent of the blueberries. I can almost sense the benefits for my skin.
While It is a little more expensive than others - I do say it is worth the little bit extra. I found it to not be oily and it really stops my face dying out.

I took it with me on a ski trip to the mountains where the air is really dry. It kept my skin great after days on the snow - doing some boarding!

DIY Blueberry Skin Care - Face Mask

DIY Blueberry Skincare
When I have the time and feel like treating myself here is what I make.
I take a tablespoon of organic blueberry powder (or half a cup of blueberries which you have crushed lightly with a mortar and pestle).

Mix in with a cup of plain yoghurt.

Add 1 teaspoon of lemon or lime juice and a tablespoon of manuka honey.
Apply to your face for 20-30 minutes and lay flat - listen to your favourite relaxing music. When you are finished wash it off with lukewarm water - or take a shower.
This is a  great DIY skin care just before bed.
Tip :When substituting extract powder for blueberries in recipes,  remember that a tablespoon of powder is equal to a half-cup of blueberries.
