Four Skincare Empties

I’ve rounded up four skincare empties I’ve recently used to the last squeeze and drop. I like to know what beauty products people are using up completely because they’re generally the ones that do the best job. I tend to chop and change moisturisers, although I do have my firm favourites, but otherwise my skincare routine has been consistent for the last two years.

Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser

I am an Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel kinda gal, so branching out and trying a new cleanser was a nice change for me. I’m not planning to stop using the Oskia one anytime soon, but i’ve realised I now like to have two cleansers. Different formulas for different purposes. The Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser is a thick formula which is deep pore cleansing and leaves my skin feeling super clean. The glow comes from the 5% Glycolic Acid and my skin still feels really nourished from the added Aloe Vera. I’m already obsessed with Pixi products and this is one that I will be repurchasing very soon!

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

I’m yet to speak about The Ordinary Skincare on my blog and I don’t know why because I am a complete fanatic! I feel like it deserves it own post all together really. I highly recommend you check the brand’s ethos and products out! The Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 has been a game changer in my skincare routine and I have just started my second bottle. Hyaluronic Acid is unique in that it can hold so much water so that the skin is more hydrated, plumper and firmer. I use a few drops of the serum both morning and night before I apply any creams or moisturisers. I honestly think since I’ve added this into the mix the texture of my skin has been so much smoother and healthy looking.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ SPF30

This is my first tube of the Effaclar Duo with SPF30. However, I have made my way through a few tubes of this stuff before without SPF. The product is only slightly thicker in texture but it works in the same way. It’s a cream which helps correct imperfections and reduce the appearance of blemishes. I find this to be great at reducing scars from blemishes and evening out my skin tone. It’s non-greasy and pretty much identical to the original formula, plus I’m a big advocate for products with added SPF.

Olay Complete Lightweight Day Fluid SPF15

An old favourite that does exactly what it says. I first tried this product when I was at school and my skin was really sensitive. Sometimes you can find it on offer in the drugstores for £3.00 and you can’t moan at that price. I’ve finished so many bottles of this and although it’s not my no.1 moisturiser, it’s a fab product for when the pennies are tight. It’s super light, sinks in instantly and I find it to be a great base for makeup.
