I have been struggling with my skin for last couple of weeks; it’s usually anywhere between normal and extremely dehydrated but sadly at the moment it’s at the latter. I have been trying out a few products trying to keep it looking healthy and feeling less tight so here are some of my favourite additions.
The most recent cleanser to make it long terms into my skincare is the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm (£46). I have to start by mentioning the price, it’s £46, so not very affordable but it’s worth the money if you are struggling to find a great all year round cleanser. It’s made with Moor Mud which gives the cleanser it’s unique natural black colour, the rich balm cleanses the skin without stripping it which is why I have been loving it. It’s also very mild and gentle meaning it removes all my makeup, even in the eye area without irritating it at all.
I’m still some what new to eye cream but I know that if I don’t start now I will regret it in a few years time so I opted for quite a light on, the Liz Earle Superskin Eye & Lip Treatment (£27.50). I was a bit worried as it is both a lip and eye treatment but I actually don’t think it works that well on the lips so I’ve been reserving it simply for the eye area. It’s light but still hydrates beautifully and I love that it’s so cooling, perfect for tired eyes.
Having finished my previous moisturiser I’ve not gone for the Origins Plantscriptions SPF 25 (£48) as I had heard so many people rave about it. Although this seems like quite a heavy moisturiser in the pot I find that it never leaves my skin greasy as it is oil-free. The SPF 25 is great for the summer but actually probably a little higher than I would usually use in the winter but it does a great job of keeping my skin hydrated.
I always have a bottle of Clarins Blue Orchid (£32) as it is my absolute saviour when my skin is feeling dehydrated, I either use this overnight or occasionally I’ll have a makeup free day and just wear this as I find it really brings my skin back to life. However if your on a bit of a budget the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum (£15.75) is reasonably priced and make visible difference on my skin without affecting its sensitivity.
