So, today I am going to be doing a skincare haul/first impressions post, based on the things I have bought myself over recent months, or things that I received for Christmas and my birthday!
The first thing, is something that I had wanted to try out for ages, but I was so comfortable with the things already in my skincare routine, that I didn’t! This is the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil. I was so used to using my Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm, that I wasn’t sure how I would feel using an oil as opposed to a balm. It took me a little while to get used to using an oil, but it is incredible! It removes makeup so easily, and doesn’t leave my skin feel dry or dehydrated like a few other oils have in the past. It is so easy to use and a little goes a long way! This is something I will definitely repurchase, and has really made me want to try out more products from Clinique!
The next thing is nothing new, and I have spoken about it so many times that I won’t bore you all! But, the Pixi Glow Tonic is absolutely phenomenal. I can’t not use this product. I can’t even explain what it does to my skin, but oh my goodness, can I tell the difference if I don’t use it! I could not be without this and will continue to repurchase over and over again!
L’Oréal have recently released their Pure Clay Face Masks, which I love and have been a huge hit with everybody else! And now, they have released Pure Clay Foam Wash face washes. I couldn’t resist and ended up buying all three; purity wash, glow scrub and detox wash. I am yet to try the purity one, and have only tried the glow scrub and detox wash once or twice, but they seemed to work really well and left my skin feeling so healthy and smooth afterwards. Once I have tried all three of them out properly, I will do a more thorough review!
When it comes to skincare, I love using products that contain charcoal. Charcoal is something that just works so well for me and always leaves my skin feeling amazing. So, chances are, if I see a product containing charcoal, I’m gonna buy it! The Bioré Charcoal Pore Minimiser another new addition to my skincare routine. It just seems to make such a difference to my skin. I haven’t been using it long enough to notice whether it has minimised my pores, but it gently exfoliates and leaves my skin feeling soft, healthy and super clean!
Liz Earle is a brand I am a huge fan of! I swear by the Cleanse and Polish for my second, and morning cleanse and I continue to repurchase her products. The Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser, is another repurchase and is quite possibly my all-time favourite moisturiser (yes, a pretty bold statement to make). My skin is so temperamental, and even though I have the odd oily patch, I have come to the conclusion that my skin is dehydrated. A lot of moisturisers just sink straight into my skin and do absolutely nothing. But this product gives my skin the moisture it needs helps keep it nourished and hydrated.
The Body Shop is a brand that never fails to fulfil my skincare needs. I have a few new products from here that I have fallen in love with. The first is the Tee Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution. I am always slightly dubious when trying out Tee Tree as my skin is quite sensitive, however this works so well with my skin! This has helped to control oil, makes my skin look clearer and smoother and has evened out my skin. I love the packaging of the product, and how you use a pipette to distribute it.
The final skincare product, again from The Body Shop is the Oils of Life Skincare Collection. I bagged this beauty in the January sales and I am OBSESSED. It contains two full sized products; the Revitalising Facial Oil 30ml, and the Intensely Revitalising Cream 50ml. These two products are insane. They give the skin a really natural, healthy looking glow, helps to soften and smooth the skin and leaves it feeling incredibly healthy and nourished! I was slightly apprehensive, as I thought it may just contribute to my oiliness and shine, but it really doesn’t and has helped my skin massively! I would most definitely recommend and I can not wait to try out more from the Oils of Life range.
That is all for my Skincare Haul and First Impressions! I hope you enjoyed this post, and it feels SO good to be back blogging! Next on the blog will be something I don’t talk that much about… Haircare!
