My mum is proud of me because I know more about skincare or at least the latest skincare since getting engaged.
I have become a little obsessed with my skincare, I have mentioned that before. I don’t wear a lot of makeup. But I have started buying a wee bit more.
We went to SpaceNK on Kings road and I am so happy we did, there was a lot of staff ready to help and we did a sweep around the store trying the sample and planning the next purchases for my Nydulge card.
I can’t wait for payday I am out of B hydra and the CFirma serum. Or I could just buy the Elizabeth Arden serum oh I still don’t know.
Skin type: I have
- Combination skin
- Oily tzone
- Large pores
- Blocked pores
- Broken veins
- Dry patches on my eyelids
How sexy do I sound! You probably think that it’s strange that I don’t wear makeup. If I go out at night then I put eye makeup, a red lips and a wee bit of blusher. I have a Lancôme tinted moisturiser with SPF. Which doesn’t smother my skin.
So with all these issue I now have skincare staples.
After reading drunk elephants skincare routine from the littles I have learned that after cleansing at night I don’t really need to cleanse in the morning as I was my face in the shower. So afterwards I just use a vitamin serum and a moisturiser. Then after that has set into my skin I use an SPF.
I cleanse my face. Then I use a serum and then a retinol and sometimes a moisturiser or a night oil if I think my skin needs it. I cant get along with sheet masks. Maybe I am the ones I am using the wrong ones but I don’t really understand them. I use a face mask once a week I would use it more but I don’t want flakey skin to add to all my other issues!
I do like to mix and match
My favourite products are
- Elemis Rose balm cleanser
- Indee Lee Toner
- The Ordinary Matryxal 10% +HA
- Drunk Elephant Whip moisturiser
- Alpha H retinol
- Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil
- Elemis night moisturiser
- Drunk Elephant BHydra
- Drunk Elephant C-Firma
- Drunk Elephant Babyfacial
- La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 50+
I own a lot more products but these are my favourites.
I will go into more detail on what the products do for my skin in a later blog and will try not to repeat myself. If you want any information about Drunk Elephant click here but Baby Facial isn’t there because I hadn’t bought it yet. Plus it deserves its own blog, I love it so much.
My mum is proud of me because I care about what goes on my skin. I am worried about my makeup on my wedding day. I understand that preparation is key.
So I am looking after it now.
