When you take skincare as seriously as I do, you're always on the hunt for the next generation of game-changing skincare products. You know the ones — those amazing products that not only cut down on time getting ready, but also restore your skin to its smooth, glowy, divine state (that dreams are made of!)
Having sensitive, combination skin means I have always had to be careful with which products I use on my skin. Over the last year, I decided to swap some of my skincare products with more natural (and dare I add- cheaper) alternatives. I cannot believe the difference in my skin- I mean, Iv always been told I have great skin, but these products have just taken my skincare routine to a whole new level, and all at a fraction of my usual skincare costs!
So, when so many people started to ask me about what skincare products I use, I decided to write a blog about it. Find your new skin heroes, below, and get ready for a lifetime of five-star reviews of your face.
Here are my top favourite skincare products:
Bells-and-whistles skincare is great, but sometimes, you just want a good, lightweight, moisturiser that does the job. Behold, the 'no worries moisturiser' - Jojoba Oil - you don’t have to pronounce it correctly (it's ho-ho-ba) to reap its benefits - is referred to as an “oil” but it is, in fact, a liquid wax. And that makes all the difference.
Unlike other skincare oils (such as Coconut oil and Argan oil), the structure of jojoba oil is very similar to the natural oils of our skin; which means it not only moisturises, but absorbs faster than other oils. It's a dream for all skin types (even oily skin)! It's lightweight, so it won't feel greasy on your face!
Jojoba oil is packed with vitamin E & B, antioxidants, and minerals such as copper and zinc which nourish and protect your skin. With many added benefits such as Anti-aging, anti-acnegenic, non-allergic and anti microbial, I found myself replacing all my moisturisers (both face and body) with 100% jojoba oil. My skin has never been better! My facial skin is smoother with a natural glow, and the skin on the rest of my body is no longer dry. Once nature’s best kept secret, its now your own.Use on damp skin to reap the benefits!
After year's of dry skin, I decided to replace my normal shower gels and face washes with this soap! This is a beautiful creamy soap, so gentle it can even be used on facial skin. My skin is very sensitive but I have had no issues with this soap and love it for washing face, body and even my hands. It leaves my skin soft and feeling moisturised rather than the usual tight and dry feeling. Great in the shower too, but as with all handmade soap, make sure that you don't leave it lying in water - put it to drain on a soap dish, preferably on its side, and it will last a long time. A lovely addition to my bathroom and ofcourse, great for using on baby/toddler skin too!
