I posted on Instagram earlier last week that I was having, what can only be described as a ‘skincare meltdown’, and had reached for a couple of saviour products which can be relied upon to work wonders. I have already reviewed a couple of the products mentioned below in depth (linked in pink), but I thought I would put together a little round up post of my most-reached for favourites during ‘meltdown moment’s.
Firstly, a little description of my skin type; normal/dry with the odd hormonal breakout. Being fair skinned, I have quite a lot of natural redness, and this is amplified when using warm/hot water and most exfoliating products. That being said, it can often feel quite tight and sensitive, and I am usually drawn towards products which aid hydration whilst being kind to my delicate skin.
My favourite Sunday pamper mask is the Simple Deep Cleansing Face Mask. This draws out any unwanted impurities, such as oil and dirt, without setting hard. It is an extremely moisturising mask which doesn't leave the skin feeling tight but clean, soft and hydrated.
The Origins GinZing moisturiser is a fairly recent purchase of mine, yet has definitely made its mark. It is light, yet moisturising, and has a divine citrus scent. Although not specifically tailored for dry skin, I find this super hydrating, and it is a product that will be very hard to contend with.
La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo is a product that I use sparingly on specific problem areas of my face. Any hormonal blemishes will be quickly reduced using this gel-like formula. This particular skincare product is a big name within the blogosphere, and rightly so.
Benefits ‘Its Potent’ Eye Cream is a sample sized product within my collection. I have been loving use this pot of goodness over the past couple of weeks, in order to hydrate and reduce my dark circles. It’s a rich, yet non greasy, consistency that sits perfectly under foundation/ concealer.
