Moisturising is my favourite part of my skincare routine. I love the feeling of rehydrating my skin and the soft, velvety feel it leaves behind. I’ve been using and repurchasing Clinique’s Dramatically Different Lotion + for two years now and I’m in no hurry to stop. My skin can be very sensitive so when I find a product that works well and does the job I like to stick with it. Clinique’s DDML+ is a no-fuss, fragrance free moisturiser which feels weightless on the skin. The formula is non-greasy and the thin texture sinks into the skin quickly but still gives a great amount of hydration. I find it to be the perfect day time moisturiser that does what it says on the tin. I also find it works well as a base underneath makeup, especially a heavy and high coverage foundation.
For my eyes I like to use Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with avocado. Again this is a no-fuss product which is a lot thicker in texture than some eye creams but penetrates the skin just as easily. A little goes a long way with this product and I find it to be extremely hydrating. As I’m only 21 (22 on Sunday, eek!) I don’t suffer from fine lines, dark circles or bags under my eyes just yet. I used to think eye creams were only needed for these reasons and never thought it was necessary for an extra product in my skincare routine. However, since using an eye cream, I do find my under-eyes to be softer and brighter. I’ll continue to enjoy the rich hydration for now and hopefully my under-eyes will reap the benefits in years to come.
