Skincare staples I won’t be without…
As I’m sure you’ll all know, I have quite a chaotic skin type! It’s really quite unpredictable. After a crazy breakout a few months ago, I decided to strip back my skincare and keep only products that I knew worked for me – and stick to them.
I think getting samples sent to me left right and centre, has meant I’m pretty fickle with my products. Or at least I was, but these days I have a really easy routine that I stick to – and it’s a routine that I would recommend to anyone! Allow me to introduce…
Oskia Renaissance Cleanser
This is my BFF really, it’s been with me through thick and thin. I’ve finished so, so many tubes of this I really think I should have some sort of dispenser in my house, like a Mr Whippy but for cleanser. Yup.
The jelly-like texture of this melts away makeup and lifts impurities of the skin, leaving it freshly cleansed and perfectly nourished. I’ll never be without it!
Pixi Peel & Polish
Another product I’ve been through multiple tubes of is this wonderful treatment, my go-to when my skin needs a little TLC. I sometimes feel like my skin feels a bit rough and bumpy, but one application of this leaves it smooth and glowing.
Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Supplement
I still remember this first time I used this little wonder product, it was love at first application! I use this serum every evening and my skin laps it up – it instantly feels softening and nourishing, and I really think it does wonders for my parched complexion!
Clarins Blue Orchid Face Oil
I used this for years but at some point totally forgot about it, until Suzie reminded me of its existence a few months ago… and I’ve been hooked again ever since! I always forget how effective oils really are, and this gem is a bit of a miracle worker for dehydrated complexions! I literally slather myself in it.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream
I recently ran out of my pot of Ultra Facial Cream, and let me tell you… it was not pretty! I felt completely lost without it!
This is something my skin just lives for, I think my skin is very hard to please after roaccutane, especially when it comes to moisturisers. This is the hit of hydration my complexion needs, and I use it every morning as the final step in my routine.
Origins Spot Treatment
I keep blemishes at bay with this zit zapper, it’s really all I need if a baddie pops up. You need the smallest amount before you go to bed, and I can guarantee that spot will be on its way come morning. I wouldn’t be without it.
So there we have it, six skincare staples that I am rarely without! Have you given any of these a whirl? What are the skincare treats you can’t be without?
