Hello my lovelies,
As promised I wanted to share with you my favourite skincare products of 2017. Some of these products will come as no surprise if you have been reading my blog for a while but I thought well I’m sure I can spread more love about these products because if you don’t own them I think you darn well should! As this is probably going to lengthy post I’ll quit jabbering away & get on with it!
Clinque – Moisture Surge see here
So yes a typical skincare item for a blogger but there is a reason why everyone has it because it’s amazing! I always worry with moisturises that due to my oily skin too much oil will be produced from the product and thus making my skin worse. This one, is the perfect amount of hydration and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I have read reviews from people who have dry skin and love this just as much. I’m so happy that I received a new pot of this for christmas – just amazing.
Clinique – Clarifying Lotion see here
Another Clinique product, I know but I have really enjoyed using their products this year. I use this as a toner before I moisturise which I believe is what you are meant to do but it is not classed as a toner. Who follows instructions anyway!? I’m not a massive toner person – I am really trying recently to use it and this baby has really helped. This just glides over my skin and doesn’t irritate me at all. My skin always feels divine after using this!
Sephora – Supreme Cleansing Oil see here
Yes, I couldn’t do a skincare post without showing this little baby. This has changed my whole cleansing world. I was happy with the whole hot cloth products but when I was in Paris and I was in Sephora and I saw this and I was like yea why not lets give it a go. I’m so glad I did because oh my it’s changed my life! I was so worried with my oil prone skin that this wouldn’t work but boy was I wrong. Currently this is my go to cleanser I’m just so annoyed that I can’t get hold of it in the UK – if you can get to a Sephora try this baby out!
L’Oreal – Pure Clay Detox Wash see here
Now for me, L’Oreal have really upped their skincare game this year and this baby is included in this. I love a good face wash and anything that claims to detox my skin and remove impurities and remove excess oil. This really does do the trick, this is the strangest consistency it does take some getting used to but once you do it’s amazing. It’s like applying a face mask because it’s fairly thick but it really does wash my skin. I really feel it gets into the skin and remove all the rubbish. This has been a massive savior to my skin this year.
Simple – Refreshing Facial Wash Gel see here
Another face wash, I said I love them! This has been a firm favourite for absolute years and I much prefer the gel like formulas for a face wash and it does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s a basic product but I just love it and I always ensure I have at least one of these as a back up. I use it near enough every single day. I know people say you should invest money into skincare but sometimes you don’t have to when the drugstore offers so many amazing products.
Simple – Soothing Facial Scrub see here
I love a good facial scrub and yes this is another Simple product! This is my go to exfoliator of choice, I mean I do use others but I always go back to this little baby. It does the job and isn’t too harsh so this should be great for those people who worry about exfoliators. My skin always feels sooo much better when I use this – I use this around 3 times a week with no problems. Simple skincare is so underrated, if you haven’t tried anything from them I urge you to check them out.
Garnier – Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water see here
This is the ONLY micellar water I will use. I don’t care what people say this is the best micellar water on the market and is amazing value for money. I use this religiously multiple times a day and will always be a part of my skincare routine. I could write for days about how much I love this product but I won’t. If you have never tried a micellar water or the Garnier one then do it – honestly you won’t regret it. That’s all I’m going to say..
Primark – Oval Cosmetic Pads
These are the ONLY cotton pads I use. Nothing compares to these. You seriously cannot go wrong for 90p and honestly they are the best quality pads I have ever tried. I have gone through so many different cotton pads and just nothing compares. These literally appear in near enough every empties post – I go through so many. If Primark ever discontinue these then I will cry for days and start a petition!
Loreal – Pure Clay Detox Face Mask see here
This mask is AMAZING. Whenever my skin is feeling meh and not looking great this is the first mask I run to to help me out. My skin always looks so clean and soft after using this and it does last a good couple of days after. If I pair this with the face wash as well then I know my skin will be looking fabulous. Their whole pure clay range is pretty impressive. I have quite a few products from the range but by far the detox line in my favourite.
Liz Earle – Cleanse & Polish see here
Obviously I couldn’t write a favourite skincare post without Liz Earle. The brand as a whole is amazing and everything that I have tried I love but this by far is my favoruite product. For me this signifies more than just a cleanser. I have been a make up lover for the longest time but skincare always took a back seat. However this was raved about to high heaven and I finally took the plunge to spend the money on skincare. My oh my I’m still in love 3 years down. I always come back to this cleanser whenever I need some TLC. Whenever anybody asks for a recommendation on a cleanser this is what I suggest. So, if you haven’t tried it firstly how the hell have you not!? Secondly go buy it you won’t regret it!
Congratulations if you made it to the end of this post – very proud! Let me know what your stand out skincare products have been this year. I’m always on the hunt to try new things!
