Four Favourites // Skincare

21 February 2016

Lately I've been trying to keep my facial skincare quite minimal and it's taken awhile to find products that I'm happy to use repeatedly and both on their own and incorporated in a 'routine' of sorts. Mostly my focus is on skincare at night time as this tends to be the time my skin needs the most attention. These four products are my current selected few that have made the cut and all have their own specific use depending on my skin at the time.

One Love Organics Skin Saviour is an awesome multi-purpose product that I'm gutted to have used up in no time at all (a full size version is on my payday beauty list!). I predominantly use it is a cleanser, I'm a big fan of oil cleansing but when you're tired it can be a long and messy process. This waterless beauty balm is a perfect alternative, it's so packed full of oils and butters that it creates the same cleansing and moisturising effect all in one go. It's a dream to use, all makeup melts away as soon as you apply this and its really effective but so gentle, I love really massaging it in. I rinse the residue with a soft bamboo or muslin cloth and like to make sure there's a little bit left as it helps really nourish my skin throughout the night. If my skin needs an extra boost I pop this on in a very small amount directly to the area in need of some TLC and it fixes it up in no time. However, I keep this strictly to the night time as I do find it doesn't work very well with applying makeup after using this.

For a face serum I've been reaching for this Zephorium Freedom/Creativity face Serum* with Carrot and Sweet Orange Oil. These oils and serums are all designed around crystals and mood boosting properties. I love this one as it certainly does pep me up a bit, but mostly I find it just really suits my skin. It's a very light oil and you only need the smallest amount, it sinks in beautifully and you don't have any residue at all. You're meant to follow it with a moisturiser but I don't find I need to. I like using tis at night when my skin doesn't need the intense nourishment of the One Love Skin Saviour, or at the beginning of the day to give my skin a lovely glowing, plump effect.

Sometimes my skin needs some serious attention at night, beyond that of hydration and this is where my all time favourite night product, REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial comes in. I don't know where I would be without this product now. I'm quite lazy and don't like going through multiple steps in a 'routine' which is why I love this so much, it seems to tackling everything in one go and all I have to do is apply a few drops to my face in the evening a few times a week. Simple. Both my oily patches and dry patches get sorted and my skin texture is always greatly improved too, much smoother, more toned and plump and even looks brighter and the colour more even. I've noticed that this is very effective on my blemish scars, I like to dab  a little extra on my dark patches, pigmentation and scars and I swear they improve much faster than normal.

Last but by no means least is my favourite day skincare product, the Angela Langford Perfect Pores Face Serum*. I have a huge problem with pores and always on the hunt to find a product that really tackles them. With this it certainly reduces the appearance of my pores and I think it tightens them and helps keep them for getting clogged. It gives a great smoothing effect on the skin, almost like a primer, which is perfect under makeup. I'm never going to get rid of my pores (it's simply impossible) but this goes a long to way improving their visibility and keeping them in check.  

Have you incorporated any of these products into your routine?
