If you read my post on What I Got For Christmas, then you will have seen that I asked for some new skincare bits. Skincare is just something that I love but have been quite lazy with for the last couple of months, and something I don’t really like spending my money on, mainly because I like to invest in quality skincare, and usually when one product runs out, every thing else rans out with it. Really annoying, haha. I have done a skincare post on here before, and the products I mentioned in that post are still in my skincare drawer and I still love them all very much, but these new additions have been a godsend! I was starting to get very dry patches around my mouth, so I knew I had to change something. I don’t know what product to thank, but my skin is now soft as a baby’s bottom and I’ve never seen it more glowy.
I’m not sure if I mentioned this in my previous skincare post, but I don’t always wash my face in the morning. I just can’t be bothered sometimes. So instead of using a cleanser or just splashing water on my face, I’ll just take this Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic (or any other facial spritz I have laying around) onto a cotton round and wipe that all over my face. I know it’s not the most hygienic, but I have dry skin and washing my face all the time can be quite harsh for me.
I then move on to serum. Now this is a step that I haven’t taken in over half a year if not more! Like I said before, I got a bit lazy with my skincare and cut out on steps that I couldn’t be bothered doing every day. But for Christmas I asked for the Kypris Antioxidant Dew and o.m.g, it’s life changing! If you have dull, dry skin, you need this! It’s a liquid-y texture, that kinda looks like milk and comes with a pipet. I usually take around three to four drops of this and pat it on to my face and neck. Then moving on to eyes, you’ll be shocked to see that the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment is not being mentioned (well, it is now I guess lol), I still absolutely love it and recommend it for anyone who wants a fuss free eye cream, however, I tried Bright Eyes by Goldfaden MD a couple of months ago and loved how hydrated and tight it made my eyes feel. The packaging is fab, it comes with a pump which is so much more convenient for hygiene purposes, it dispenses the perfect amount of product and is just a brand that needs more hype, because honestly, I haven’t heard anyone talk about it and I don’t understand how and why?!!
Although I loved the Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer moisturiser, I felt like towards the end it just wasn’t doing much for my skin. I had heard so many great things about the Sunday Riley Tidal moisturiser, how it was lightweight, really hydrating, absorbed easily, that I wanted to give it a go and I must say that I agree with it all. It’s a great all year round moisturiser, it’s not too light to the point where you feel like all you're massaging is water, but it’s not thick either, it has a great consistency. The smell is a bit odd, kinda smells like cucumber. Don’t know if that’s just me? But it’s a pleasure to use and my skin hasn’t looked this good in a really long time!
Lastly, to remove my makeup I use the Garnier Miceller Oil-Infused Cleansing Water. Garnier in general make some of the best makeup removers in my opinion. Their original micellar water was fab, their eye makeup removers and the 2-in-1 makeup removers are some of my all time favourites, and this oil-infused version didn’t disappoint. It’s great for anyone with normal to dry skin. Your skin feels clean, but not squeaky clean to the point where you feel like your face is going to rip if you smile, it leaves a moisturising film on the face which I personally like. I know it won’t be for everybody but it definitely works for me. It removes any kind of makeup, waterproof or not, very easily and the best part is that it’s super cheap and lasts ages!
