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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
