THE SKINCARE SAVIOURS



Since we're well into October now and the weather is getting progressively crap, my skins becoming pretty dry, sad and miserable. I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty lazy when it comes to my skin (shameful, I know) I cleanse and exfoliate twice a day and put moisturiser on before my makeup on a morning but that's about as hard as it usually gets. But lately, I've been practicing a lil self-love on an evening and took my skincare regime up a notch and I love the results. Not only is it such a nice way to relax and rewind before getting ready for bed, my skin has never felt smoother. I thought i'd share with you some of my favourites so we can all feel like a baby's bum together, enjoy!

Palmers Cocoa Butter - Link Here

I've been aware of the hype around this product since god knows when but the thought of an all-body moisturiser used to freak me out. Weird I know, but I hate the feeling of creams, etc in my hands and the thought of me rubbing it all over my body used to make me gag. Anyway, since my skin was so dry and practically scaly I took the plunge and bought an exfoliating glove to apply it with. This is the perfect combination! I use this after I've got out the shower and I smell heavenly, feel squeaky clean and the exfoliating glove really helps to keep my skin stay soft. I will warn you though, every time I use this I crave chocolate.

Loreal Detox Mask - Link Here

This mask has had so many reviews on the blogosphere I was sceptical of including it because I bet, like me, everyone's sick of seeing it by now, but it's too good not to include. It completely lives up to the hype and I've seen amazing results on my skin. I have pretty sensitive, oily-type skin so blackheads are a nightmare to get rid of as you could imagine. This is the only product I've used-so far- in my 20 year lifespan that actually minimises the look of my pores, I almost cried with happiness when I used it for the first time. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone!

Nivea Sensitive Night Cream - Link Here

I've been using this cream religiously for the past few weeks and I really don't know how I used to survive without it. Having sensitive skin, my skin can flare up pretty bad sometimes which leaves me with weird, red looking patches. This cream has completely fixed this problem for me and I look in the mirror on a morning and don't want to laugh at my pepperoni face anymore. I mean, I'm practically a supermodel now, so this is a true skincare champion - especially for the £3 price tag.

Nuxe Multi-Purpose Dry Oil - Link Here

I'm not going to lie, this product was neglected for quite some time before I decided I'd give it a go (lost in my boring Birchbox products drawer). Having oily skin, I immediately get put off by oils because I think it'll just make my skin worse but I was so wrong about this. The oil works pretty much anywhere you want to put it, I rub it into the ends of my hair after a shower and I apply it to my face if it's looking a little dehydrated. The smell is so addictive, it's literally like applying a layer of silk on your body. This little sample has lasted me quite some time and my boyfriend has been pinching it when he can too. So I'll definitely be repurchasing this once it runs out.

Thanks for reading, I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  8. Lovely picks. I really like the the L'oreal mask as well. It works really good considering it being a drugstore product. The Nuxe oil sounds nice! I must check that out :)

  11. I've heard such great things about Palmer's and I've used their tanning moisturiser and loved it so this sounds perfect for the wintery months, and an exfoliating glove is a good shout! I've also really been meaning to invest in this L'oreal mask and this oil sounds brilliant - i've never really known what to do with it, but sounds perfect! I'm the same too, with oily skin I was a bit skeptical and thought using oil wouldn't be any good, but thanks for your review, might give it a go myself!
