Soooo I decided to do something a bit different. Even thought this subject favourite of mine, I hardly talk about beauty or make-up on this blog. So I want to try and incorporate and balance it out between my style posts, why not talk about it now? Better late then never! Let’s get honest here, I’m not the type to use loads of products at one time. I find that it irritates my skin, I try to keep it as simple as possible and use a few products at a time. Here are my 5 current skincare favourites of the moment.
For ages I wanted to purchase the Clarisonic and try it out, So I did my research and found out it was a bit to pricey for my liking (tryna save money here!). So there I was browsing through amazon for cheap alternatives and I came across this. I was a bit sceptical a first but when I saw the positive reviews, I thought “Why not?” Let me just say that this is AWESOME! It really has been good for my skin and I never got that “purging stage” that people would talk about in regards to the Clarisonic. The brush head is perfect for sensitive skin, it left my skin feeling smooth and soft (and this was on the FIRST use, people!) and when using a moisturiser afterwards, I really felt the product sink into the skin more. I use it once every other week as I feel using twice a week would be too excessive. It also comes with the Olay Professional Pro-X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser. I guess your supposed to use together, but I just use the cleanser on it’s own from time to time. I highly recommend!
Hands down, one of the best creams I’ve ever used. Ever since I got a sample of this stuff and used it for the first time, I knew I had to get more. The biggest problem for me when using face moisturisers is that by the middle of the day my face would end up being so greasy and shiny (the struggle was so real). But with using this, I NEVER get greasy and my skin still stays moisturised and mattified at the same time! How it that even possible!? It’s also perfect for using before you apply your make-up. It’s seriously a game changer.
This has been a favourite of mine for years now, but I kinda forgot about it until I saw it in my local chemist the other day and decided to purchase it again. I forgot how much I love this stuff, it’s a really good overall moisturiser for the skin and when you rub it in, it doesn’t leave you feeling dry nor does it leave you feeling greasy, it leaves the right amount of moisture and smells freaking amazing.
This product was actually recommended to me by a dermatologist and I’m glad she did. This is such a good face cleanser, it really gets all the dirt and grease off your face while still being super gentle to the skin. Also it’s a really good make-up remover. I use this twice a day; in the morning and before I go to bed, it just leaves the skin feeling refreshed and squeaky clean, I heart this stuff.
Last but defiantly not least! This is one of my favourite body butter’s, especially around the winter time. It’s just has such a nice richness, the smell is amazing (and lasts all day…seriously it does) and it’s got a thick, creamy consistency to make you feel more than moisturised which is defiantly needed around this time of year. I think I like this one a little bit better than the coco-butter. Ether way you can never go wrong with a body butter from the body shop.
So those where my current skincare favourites, I’ll definitely will be doing more of these. What skincare bits have you been loving recently? Have you tried any of the products mentioned? Until next time! 🙂
