Back To Basics : Skincare

IMG_2512

I try a lot of different skincare but there are a few staples I come back to time and time again and these are a three of them. In fairness the lip balm is a semi-new addition,for the past year (more, even) I’ve used Reve De Miel exclusively as my evening lip care however prior to that I had a tube of Eight Hour Cream in its place and I thought it couldn’t be beaten. I recently discovered a brand new jar of EH lip balm I’d totally forgotten about and I’m really enjoying using it again, it’s basically the same thing in a slightly thicker form.. and in a jar. Much like other skincare (and haircare) products I think you get used to one thing and it’s worth switching things up every now and then if only to keep your favourites effective. I still love my Nuxe but it didn’t seem to be doing the magic for me anymore.. hopefully when I return to it I will rediscover my love. – Also the Elizabeth Arden one is WAY more expensive!!

Organic Surge Blissful Daily Moisturiser has been a favourite for AGES.. maybe 2 years + so you will definitely be bored of me talking it up by now if you’ve been reading/watching for a while but none the less.. it’s awesome! Although it’s a day cream it’s the perfect weight (is that a thing with cream? I mean they can be heavy/light, right? I’m going with it) for night for me. It’s non greasy, absorbs quickly and hydrates.. if I need a little boost I might layer it over an oil/serum but alone this is pretty darn good and something I would absolutely recommend you try!

Last up is Sanctuary Facial Repair Peptide Eye Cream. Again something I’ve been using for at least a year and honestly since I found it I haven’t even been interested in trying another. I still trial them from time to time but what I love about this is how thick it is. Some people wont like that and I definitely wouldn’t use it under makeup but at night it feels like a serious treat to my TIRED eyes. I’m sure it’s totally psychosomatic but it FEELS like it’s doing something.

So they are my staples.. I flit to and from others here and there but we all have the basics we know work for us and these are mine.. what are yours?

    I’ve used the S.Spa peptide eye cream and I’ve used it under make-up with no problems at all, I’m prone to dry skin and it works a treat. I’ve just stocked up on their peptide night cream of the same range as I just love their products. I also use the Stop the clock day cream.

    I’m trying the oil cleansing method using Almond Oil, i’m loving the results at the moment especially with winter coming up but thinking of trying a lighter oil like jojoba.
