I hope you’re all having a lovely week so far, I was back at school for today and I feel like I need another week off already, haha, but just 5 weeks until the next holiday! Later this week I will be uploading a post for the Liebster award, which That Geeky Girlfriend nominated me for, definitely check out her blog, I absolutely love it and I’m sure you will too! You can expect that post to be uploaded on Thursday if all goes to plan, so keep an eye out.
Today though I am sharing with you my top skin care products! I mentioned in my New Year resolutions post that taking better care of my skin was something I wanted to do this year, I definitely have improved my skin care routine already, so I’m going to kick start sharing my skin care routines and finds by sharing my favourite products with you!
1.Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Facial Wash-I am a huge fan of Simple products and this is by far my favourite face wash, I have sensitive skin, particularly on my face, but this leaves my skin feeling super nourished, refreshed, and so soft, it’s definitely the best face wash I have tried.
2.Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser-Another Simple product, this is my favourite moisturiser, it leaves my skin so hydrated without making it oily, I have tried alternative brands but they just aggravated my skin and caused it to become really dry and breakout but I haven’t had any problems with this product. My skin feels really soft after using it, and I find it great for my sensitive skin.
3.Vaseline Intensive Care Healthy Hands + Stronger Nails Hand Cream-This is such an amazing hand cream! My hands get really dry in the cold weather and I also get some light eczema on parts of my hand but this hand cream is the best way I have found to deal with both of those in one go. It’s lovely and rich and leaves your hands really moisturised. Plus, a bonus is that it does make your nails stronger, which is brilliant if you have stupidly weak nails like I do! I can honestly say I have yet to find a hand cream I prefer or one that works better for my skin.
4.Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Scrub-I use this product every two days all over my body, it’s so good for sorting out dry skin as well as things like back acne etc. It’s definitely an essential part of my skin care routine and I would highly recommend it if you suffer from dry skin and/or acne on your back, shoulders etc. I have found that it massively helps me to reduce breakouts in those areas and leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth. It also smells amazing!
5.Facial Cleanser-I have the Champneys facial cleansing system, while I no longer think that the product is available from their website, I still love this style of product. I’ve found that it really helps to sooth my skin and prevents me from getting spots, I use this product every 2 days because I have found that over use can actually cause my skin to breakout more, but using it every other day has led to me having much smoother and clearer skin, I would definitely recommend investing in a product such as this, it has helped to improve my skin so much! This product actually came with a second slightly rougher brush which I have found to be great for using on areas such as the back and shoulders where the skin is usually less sensitive, this is another product that I have found to be really useful in reducing and preventing back acne.
6.Oilatum Shower Gel Fragrance-Free for Eczema-I can’t even begin to express my love for this product, those of you with eczema will know how irritating and uncomfortable it can be, this product works so so well for me and massively reduces the itchiness and irritability of my skin, while it doesn’t always stop it completely, depending on how bad my skin is, I have found that is always makes it more bearable and less irritating, this is such a huge essential for me and is something that I have incorporated into my daily routine because of how well it works for my skin.
So there are my favourite skin products, what are some of your favourite products? I’d love to hear any recommendations, comments and feedback welcome!
