Four Autumn Skincare Favourites.

I find these first few cold weeks in November the hardest on my skin, I’m waking up to a seriously zapped complexion everyday thanks to central heating and cold weather combined. It takes me awhile to get my skincare routine in sync with my skin, but I think I’ve got it down thanks to four little winners.

Roger & Gallet Aura Mirabilis Cleanser & Mask; This is an unexpected find for me, as I might not have found the products had I not worked with them on this release. As it happens, I’m completely smitten with the range!
This cleanser reminds me of the Oskia Renaissance Cleanser as it has that same creamy gel texture, removing makeup in a flash and keeping the skin fresh and super soft.
As much as I love my go-to Renaissance Cleanser, I like to shake it up a bit and use other products so I’m glad I’ve got a good thing going here.
I use this daily as a cleanser, massaging it in to skin and rinsing off with a face cloth, but you can also leave it on for five minutes as a mask for seriously pampered skin. Me love.


Sunday Riley Good Genes; I got Good Genes in sample form some time ago and knew I had to buy it in full, and I don’t regret adding it to my routines. The light milky serum exfoliates and brightens the skin, giving your best complexion come morning.
It helps to clear up acne-prone, sun-damaged or uneven skin and even boost circulation for a radiant complexion.
It’s my nighttime staple at the moment and I’m recommending it to everyone!
I also saw someone in the CultBeauty review section say it really reduced their pore size, so I’m praying for the same results!


Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Hydrator; This is actually a repurchase for me, having finished my bottle over the summer I quickly realised I couldn’t live without it.
This is a super light, seriously hydrating moisturiser that my skin just loves. It feels quenching upon application and sinks in rapidly, two things I look for in a face cream!
I tend to use this more in the morning, but occasionally as a night cream too. I think Aesop do some incredible skincare, and this is no exception.

Clinique Pep-Start HydraBlur Moisturiser; This is the ultimate must-have product right now, I’m yet to hear of anyone trying it and not completely loving it.
It’s basically a primer and moisturiser in one, which sounds a bit naff but I was pleasantly surprised at how hydrating this is.
It’s an essential part of my routine on days where I want my makeup to look amazing, as the smoothing properties really make such a big difference to the overall condition of my skin.
Skin looks smoother and more refined, makeup applies better, looks way more perfected and really lasts longer too. An all-round winner if you ask me.

Are you a skincare obsessive? Have you tried any of these?

  • Sunday Riley Good Genes is so pricey, but it really is one of the best products I have ever used. Need to save up for a new one. Mine didn’t last nearly as long as I would have liked! 🙂 Laura x


  • I’ve just bought Sunday Riley Martian toner and UFO face oil – they’re incredible! So happy with them, as I didn’t see much improvement in my skin when I bought Luna! x

  • I so need to try that clinique primer, I have been using Soap & Glory’s speed plump for ages but with this weatejr nothing is cutting it before foundation right now!

  • Not tried any of these yet but I’m loving the sound of all of them. I’ve been lusting after Good Genes for quite some time now but it’s just so expensive! I already own and adore a fair few Aesop products – the Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque and the Immediate Moisture Facial Spray are absolute essentials in my routine. Really want to try out this moisturiser and add to my collection now xx

  • I wish I could afford the Sunday Riley Good Genes, it sounds perfect! ♥ The Aesop moisturiser sounds lovely for my skin, too. 🙂

  • The Pep Start range from Clinique is really good – the Eye Cream is particularly amazing!
