I’m pretty picky with my skincare essentials, but I think I’ve found some good ones recently and I couldn’t resist the temptation to share them with you.
Beautiful Brunette Shampoo and Conditioner
I first read about Oxelio Topique in Vogue – and couldn’t resist trying it, because French pharmacy products really are amazing. Use it every night and you’ll wake up with your skin feeling soft, rejuvenated and generally giving you a good start to your day!
This Cattier mask is my go to mask when my skin needs a bit of a lift! It’s for sensitive skin, and is a real pick me up when stress or a lot of eating out is making my skin angry. It’s fabulous for getting rid of spots as well!
Post mask, I always reach for my Clarins Face Treatment Oil to give my skin a big drink! Use it sparingly, you literally need one or two drops on a cotton pad and dab it all over your face and neck. It’s like an at home facial, which we all know we need sometimes.
Clinque’s pore refining serum does exactly what it says on the tin: my pores are smaller, my skin looks better and I love it as much as the first time I used it. I had bad skin as a teen, so I have a lot of pores to sort out, and this idoes the job for me.
It was Birchbox that introduced me to Caudalie Vionperfect Serum and I’ve started using it every day. I didn’t realize the benefits of a serum until I started using one – it’s like a really good, hydrating base coat for your face, but it doesn’t make your skin oily. A must if your skin is unhappy or prone to being stressed.
The REN 1 minute facial is just oh wow. When you don’t have time to sit with a face mask on, or you don’t have the money for a facial, this is the product you should be reaching for. Just pop it on for a minute, and then rinse it straight off (I tend to do it in the shower) and your skin will glow. Literally glow! Follow it with serum and moistureiser to give your skin the nutrients that it needs, or Oxelio Topique if it’s night time.
Finally, my Bobbi Brown moistureiser is a product I don’t think I’ll ever give up. I’ve honestly used it for years, it always makes my skin soft, and provides a perfect base for my make up. I’ve tried lots of moistureisers in my time, and I always find myself going back to this one – says something doesn’t it?
Finally, and very quickly – my favourite fragrances!
