All year I’ve been struggling with cluster spots, it may be a combination of changing hormones, anxiety and just generally having a lazy skincare routine. So recently I decided to start being more regimented with skincare and paying close attention to what I use.
The last few weeks my blemishes and spots have been dissapearing and I’m just overall really happy with the skincare I’m using. So wanted to share my current faves with yall.
Since last summer, I’ve been a total convert to facial oils. I always steered clear of them before because it’s a scary thought smothering your face in oil before going about your day, trying not to look like a sweaty mess with makeup sliding off. However! As I have dry skin, it literally drinks it all up leaving my face hyrdrated all day and *glowing*.
I was lucky enough to win a whole box of goodies from the babiest babe, Chloe Plumstead, who hosted a twitter giveaway. I have been slowly working through it all.
The Decleor facial oil was one of the products in said box, and my oh my is it wonderful. It is a small but very mighty bottle. I’ve used it every day for over a month and as you can see, I’m still left with a fair amount. My skin has been so much happier than it is when I use a cream.
In the last couple of weeks this Vitamin E Oil has been a real treat to my skin too, it’s not as thick as the Decleor, which makes it easier to spread around. I’ve used lots of Dr Organic products before and am never left disappointed. It’s been helping to shrink my blemishes and scars. I’ve also been using it on my stretch marks as it leaves my skin feeling really soft.
Okay, on to cleansers. Again these both were in the box of prizes I won. I’m so late to the micellar water hype, but let me tell you, it’s an absolute LIFE CHANGER. The Avene Micellar Lotion removes every single bit of makeup so easily, even stubborn mascara! My skin is left radiant and not dry in any way. Their range of products is aimed at those with sensitive skin, it’s an absolute dream.
I use the Decleor Cleansing Oil Water when I’m not feeling lazy, it’s activated with water so one to use when standing over the sink. It leaves my skin hydrated and completely cleansed of makeup.
Last but not least, this baby is 50p in Asda. I’m no stranger to the benefits of rose for the skin. I’ve been wanting to incorporate it into my daily routine for a while. So when I spotted this it went straight in the basket. Not only does it smell great, it’s noticeably minimising the redness where my blemishes are. As well as zapping new spots overnight, shrivling them up into nothingness before they become a force to be reckoned with. I just use a bit on cotton wool and dab it onto the problem areas. Massive thumbs up for this.
There we have it. If you’ve learnt anything from this post, it should be oils = good, micellar water = goOD, rose water = GOOD.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Ciao!
