Skincare is an essential part in looking after your skin and a good skincare routine can make all the difference. I have found so many great products that work well for me, so I thought I would share some of my top skincare picks. I have oily combination skin, that is prone to breakouts so I always look for products that cater these areas.
I have tried so many cleansers over the years and I have 4 that I always end up going back to and I swear by. These include the Simple Cleansing Lotion and the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, which are my favourites. They remove my makeup effortlessly, making it enjoyable, moisturise and hydrate my skin, don’t cause any irritation and remove all the dirt and grim under neath my skin.
I love using toner as it always makes such a difference to my skin and removes any makeup or dirt and grim that is underneath the skin. My skin always looks so glowy after using the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Primarks Skin Tonic, which have become my favourites. It really makes such a difference to the overall appearance, instantly making it feel much smoother and look great.
The Liz Earle Superskin face serum is one of my ultimate faves, as well as the Bare Minerals Skin-longevity which I wish I could justify paying £48 for every time. It plumps and brightens my skin, leaving my skin glowing. It’s so moisturising and smells so good! I love applying this on a night before bed after cleansing and toning.
This eye cream is a new favourite within my skincare collection and I am obsessed. I am unfortunately blessed with dark, puffy under eye circles and this product has worked miracles. I been applying this morning and night and it has instantly blurred my dark under eye area and makes me look more awake on a morning. It’s so creamy and hydrating as well, I can’t wait to get my hands on the full size product.
When it comes to moisturisers I always go for Nivea as they are amazing and have never let me down. I have tried every single on of their moisturisers and I have never been disappointed. They are so moisturising and hydrating and don’t irritate my sensitive skin, like most moisturisers tend to. They are so cheap, and last me for months. I couldn’t live without their moisturisers in my skincare collection, I always have a backup in case I run out.
If you know me you will know that you won’t ever see me without Vaseline. I have about 5 on the go in different bags, so I don’t ever forget it. It’s my ultimate favourite lip balm and my lips always look and feel great, especially during the colder months.
I love a good face mask, especially when I decide to have a pamper evening or when my skin is exceptionally bad. My 2 favourites are the Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask and the L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask. They both really get the dirt and grub from underneath my skin, clear my pores, get rid/reduce any spots and leave my skin feeling so smooth.
The Ordinary Lactic Acid is so good in reducing any spots, making my skin feeling super soft by getting rid of any dead skin and leaving me glowing. I apply this around 3 times a week before I go to bed and when I wake up my skin looks and feels great. It isn’t at all harsh and doesn’t irritate my skin which is an added bonus due to the peeling quality. One thing about this is the smell, it isn’t great and I know it would put people off.
Have you tried any of these products? Are they your favourites as well?
