It has taken me a long time to really try and understand how skin care works and how my skin personally works with products. I believe Skin Care is a really important part of my everyday routine and really a part of my life. That does sound very over dramatic and very la di da but I have incorporated my Skin Care routine into my life in a way that it helps me relax and destress at the end of the day. Because of my rather large obsession with Skin Care I have tried and tested a whole lot of products and have come to have a rather nice collection of products that DO WORK for me, lets talk about them.
Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil: Using oils on my skin was something I was very nervous about to start with because of several reasons, 1. being because I have oily skin to begin with and didn’t see how it would help and 2. because I was addicted to the feel of the thick, luxurious cream at the end of the day and how I have changed my tune. I am now an avid oil user, having four on the go at the moment and I struggle to try new products that aren’t oils because now I crave the feeling of the hydration absorbing into my skin. The Josie Maran Argan Oil is one of my favourite and most used oils because it provides such an amazing amount of hydration to the skin without feeling too slippery. This helps to keep the product on your skin rather then sliding down onto your neck (although it is great for your neck to). If I don’t want to use an oil to treat a particular issue I always reach for this one.
Eve Lom Eye Lift: I am very young to be using extremely lifting eye products and to be honest I had never thought about purchasing something like this because I do not have any creases around my eyes (yet) but I was truly shocked at the results I have seen from using this product. I apply eyeshadow everyday and I have seen a huge difference in the way the shadows apply and the taughtness of my eyelids when applying the shadows, I feel like I use less shadow because the skin holds the product so well. I will be using this for years to come.
Origins Drink Up Intense Mask: My holy grail evening moisturiser! I do not have enough good things to say about this one except you need to buy it. This little beauty is packed full of Hyaluronic Acid and combines a great combination oils that help to hydrate and plump up the skin. I very rarely go an evening without using this all over my face, neck. I have not tried a single product that has rivalled the hydration that I get from this cream.
Nuxe Reve De Miel: The newest find on my list is now a top contender for the product that changed my life the most (so dramatic I know). I picked this up on a whim when there was a sale, I had heard over and over again about how great this was but for some reason I just hadn’t picked it up. I do not had super dry lips to begin with but because I wear makeup everyday I find my lips feel a little tired at the end of the day. I had tried numerous products that had worked to some extent but I just wasn’t satisfied by the results. Now I have found the best lip balm I have tried. I apply a generous coat to my lips as a final step in my evening skin care routine before I drift off to sleep and amazingly wake up and still find I can feel the product there. It is not a thick feeling but rather just a comfortable and hydrated feel.
I hope you have enjoyed a look into my Night Skin Care routine and seeing what I am finding is working on my 23 year old skin. Let me know what you use on your skin and what has made the biggest difference.
