FRIDAY FIVE: SKINCARE WISHLIST

To wrap up skincare week, I thought I’d make this Friday Five all about the skincare products I’m currently coveting…

Skincare Wishlist

  1. Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque, £27 from Cult Beauty
    This has been on my Must Try list for ages. I probably don’t need another clay mask but, I want one so… This one always gets great reviews so it’s only a matter of time before I cave in!
  2. Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser, £35 from Space NK
    I don’t actually want this to use as a cleanser, although I hear good things about it, rather to combine it with Good Genes to use as the Sunday Riley “Flash Facial”. Currently trying to justify spending the money on it to myself.
  3. Rodial Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic, £33 from John Lewis
    I’ve only ever tried various sample sizes of products from Rodial and whilst I’ve loved everything the prices have always put my off. I’ve read a few really positive reviews about the Dragon’s Blood Tonic and was pleasantly surprised to see it wasn’t as extoritionately priced as I had expected – still pretty pricey though, but I suspect this will be my next treat for myself…
  4. NIOD Low-Viscoscity Cleaning Ester, £30 from Look Fantastic
    Again, I’ve read some rave reviews about this (and in face every.single.NIOD.product) so I’m definitely intrigued to try this. From reading descriptions of this it sounds like a magnet for make-up removal so it’s something I really want to try – I wear a LOT of make-up so anything that makes that process super quick and simple sounds like a winner to me!
  5. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Sycronized Recovery Complex II, £50 from Boots
    Another one that has been on my Must Try list for what feels like all eternity. I’m yet to find someone who has used this and not loved it. As I mentioned in my evening skincare post I’m a bit of a serum newbie so the price has been the only thing holding me back – I haven’t wanted to make a super expensive mistake – but I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for it in Duty Free next month in the hopes of saving a few pennies.

What do you have on your skincare wishlist at the moment?

SKINCARE HAUL

As a self confessed skincare addict, I’m pretty much constantly searching out new products that promise to do wonders for my skin.

Here’s a quick look at the new to me products I’m going to be working into my skincare routines over the next couple of months…

Skincare Haul

HealGel Intensive, £35.00 from SpaceNK
I’ve been wanting to try one / all of the HealGel products for ages and finally bit the bullet and ordered the HealGel Intensive from SpaceNK. I’m super excited to try this out as it promises to soothe skin and target its deeper layers, increasing collagen production and decreasing fine lines, swelling and puffiness along with soothing irritation.

CURRENT SKINCARE ROUTINE: MASKS AND TREATMENTS

After chatting about my current morning and evening skincare routine I thought I should touch on the products that are more than worthy of their spot in my bathroom cabinet but that I don’t use daily – either because that would just be OTT for my skin or because they’re products I only reach for if I’m having a specific skin problem (unusual dryness, a breakout etc. etc.)

CURRENT MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE

Welcome back for Day Two of Skincare Week. Today I’m chatting about the products I’m currently using for my morning skincare routine. It’s a little bit shorter than my evening routine, mainly because I’m absolutely not a morning person so I’d rather spend as many extra minutes in bed as possible!

MY SKIN TYPE & CONCERNS
As I’ve mentioned countless times before I have a patch of hyperpigmentation on my right cheek from previous spots and blemishes that has been around for years now. It has improved a LOT over the last few months, however it’s still something I feel super self conscious about.

Hyperpigmentation aside, I’d describe the rest of my skin as pretty average. It’s combination, although more oily on the cheeks and chin rather than the forehead and chin, and I get the odd breakout, usually on my chin / around my mouth, which is usually hormonal although I’m terrible for resting my chin on my hand and generally touching that area of my face an awful lot throughout the day which I’m sure doesn’t help matters.

MY MORNING ROUTINE
My morning skincare routine is mainly about refreshing and prepping my skin to look and feel the best it can for the day ahead  whether I’m applying make-up or going bare faced. Continue reading “CURRENT MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE”
