After continually trying out and testing new products I’m constantly changing my everyday skincare routine and I wanted to share some of the products I’ve been loving at the moment. For reference, I have dry combination skin and my biggest weakness is face wipes or micellar water at the end of the day when I’m super tired so I’m really trying to stabilise my routine at the moment.
What I’ve Been Using:
L’Oreal Fine Flowers Face Wash:
I’ve been loving the face masks from L’Oreal so I was quite keen to try their Fine Flowers face wash and I was surprised how much I liked it. It cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural oils and has a really lovely scent. It’s really lightweight so lovely for summer and I really love the pale pink packaging. The Fine Flowers face wash costs £3.99.
Pixi Glow Peel Pads:
I actually wrote a whole blog post about >> Pixi products I’ve been loving << and the Glow Peels Pads have become an integral part of my everyday skincare routine. I just love the high amounts of glycolic acid in it, with 20% this is much higher than other products that I use such as The Ordinary Glycolic Acid or the Pixi Glow Tonic. I use these after cleansing and sweep them over my skin and after a couple of minutes, wash off any remaining residue. It leaves my skin feeling super soft and provides a great base for moisturiser. The Pixi Glow Peel Pads cost £24.
La Roche Posay Hyalu B5:
I follow up with a serum and I’ve used quite a few from The Ordinary but I’ve recently been using the Hyalu B5 from La Roche Posay. It contains hyaluronic acid which can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture which means that it retains moisture in the skin very well. This comes in a glass bottle with a pipette and the serum itself is medium in viscosity and is really quick drying, not sticky at all on the skin. It also has a really lovely scent so its a pleasure to use. The Hyalu B5 costs £37 – expensive but SO worth it.
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief:
Cliniques moisturisers have always featured in my skincare routine and at the moment I’m loving the extended thirst relief moisturiser from the moisture surge range which is needed for my dry skin. You only need a tiny bit which is good because this comes at cost of £38, making the Moisture Surge the most expensive product in my routine.
Lancome Hydra Intense Masque:
I love a good face mask and this is perfect when I need an extra moisture boost into my skin and I love the gel formulation so it doesn’t feel to heavy. I apply this once I’ve finished my routine in a thick layer and leave on for 5-10 minutes. Then I tissue it off and my skin is left feeling smooth and hydrated. The Hydra Intense masque costs £33.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe Cucumber And Green Tea:
I’m all about the moisture and for summer I’ve been loving face mists for a quick spritz on the go or to finish off my routine. It was tricky to choose my favourite as I’ve also been loving the Clinique moisture surge facial spritz but the Mario Badescu Facial Spray comes in a bit (read: a lot) cheaper at £7. It’s got a really good nozzle which leaves a lovely fine mist all over your skin to refresh and revive dull and tired skin.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil:
I’d heard a lot about this product but didn’t try it for a long time and it was only when I visited >> Germany at Christmas Time << last year where I had really dry, cracked lips that I decided to buy the Clarins Lip Comfort Oil and I wasn’t disappointed! I bought the honey shade for £19 (ish – I paid in euros) and it sorted my lips right out. The consistency is quite thick so you only need a light layer which you apply with the spongy applicator and it leaves a super shiny but not sticky finish which is really hydrating and nourishing.
This is probably my favourite product in my routine right now and I’ve been using it all through the winter and into summer too. I can’t see myself without it now!
Do you use any of these products?
