I do not really know anything about beauty regimes. But I've been watching a lot of Youtube beauty vloggers over the past few months and I've been looking for things that will brighten and moisturise my skin. I have very dry skin with the occasional hormonal blemish. So I look for products that won't make my skin produce any excess oil, but will still keep my skin hydrated. These items have managed to keep my skin balanced over winter and I've been really impressed. This is what has worked for me, I'd recommend to read up on your skin type and read lots of reviews to see how people react to products. Youtube and Beauty blogs are a great place to start.
1. No.7 Beautiful Skin - Dry Skin Rescue.
This thick balm is so hydrating and sinks really easily into my skin. It's cleared dry patches up on my skin literally over night and is so easy to use. It has no scent and it just feels good on my skin. I'm really happy I picked this up a couple weeks ago and I've been using it every couple of days when I feel my skin getting a bit tight. I'm very impressed with this product.
2. La Roche-Posay - Effaclar Duo
This does state that it is for severe imperfections, which *touch wood* I don't tend to get. But this has improved my skin so much. I have quite large pores over my nose and slight discolouration and scarring. This has cleared all that up really well, and hasn't dried my skin out either. It's a great primer as well, making it multi-use. I want to try more of their stuff now but as I'm on the ban, this will have to do for now.
3. Nivea Daily Essentials - Rejuvenating Night Cream
This is my go to cheap night cream. I love the smell and it sinks in really well. It doesn't make me break out and lasts all night. When I wake up in the morning I can still feel the lovely creamy smooth texture sitting on my skin a little bit. It's not the best but for the price you can't go wrong.
4. Skin Repair Moisturiser - Liz Earle
My mum got me this for Christmas and I'm using it sparingly every day but I really love it. I love the smell, it doesn't feel greasy and is so creamy. It's a bit pricey for a moisturiser but before this I didn't have a moisturiser I loved and would be my all time go to. Now I do. It fits in really well with the cleanse and tone system I use with them and is so gentle on my skin.
Like I said, I'd recommend to anyone to read up on ingredients and how products affect peoples skin. But I would recommend these products to everyone as they're very gentle on the skin. What are your favourite skin products? Can you recommend any for me to try?
