Top 5 Skincare Loves



Happy Monday guys! Today I'm back with another skincare themed post for you all. I decided to narrow it down to my top five favourite things today. Compiling this post actually made me realise how much I miss products I used to use, namely the Origins GinZing moisturiser and a couple of others. It's also reminded me what I use and genuinely like+would repurchase too. There's a bit of everything in here, from face masks...to the micellar water I still use and love. Oh and these are in no particular order favourites-wise, let's not complicate things...

Pixi Glow Tonic-I've tried a few different toners over the years but this one remains my favourite. It's an exfoliating toner but is super gentle and doesn't give your skin that stinging, tingly feeling. There's not much more to it than that really. It's a great, inexpensive toner and I like it a lot. 

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm-Lip balms aren't exactly a rarity but this one is still my favourite by far. I've been through two or three jars of the stuff now and I will forever repurchase it. It's very thick so I recommend it for night-time use only but it is so, so hydrating. My lips are prone to cracking and going gross in Winter so I apply a layer of this every night before bed. In the morning I wake up with matte, smooth lips and do a little invisible salute to Nuxe. I highly recommend this one. Escentual, the site I buy mine from often do deals on their French pharmacie skincare so keep an eye out for those, it's a great time to stock up/repurchase products. 

Manuka Doctor Apiclear Peel Off Face Mask*-This mask is new to me but at the moment it's my current favourite. You've probably seen this one in a few vlogs and over on Snapchat. People seem to love documenting the peeling off process. We're a weird bunch... This mask is quite intense so I'd only use it maybe once or twice a month. It's also great for clearing up blemishes at a certain time of month, if you catch my drift. I'm not gonna lie, peeling it off is quite fun too. Again, weird bunch. 

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel-I have the world of beauty blogs, namely Anna to thank for this purchase. This cleansing gel sits somewhere between a gel and an oil in terms of texture. It almost melts down once you apply it to your face. Once you apply cold water to the skin it lathers up slightly but it's not a full on foam, which I'm not a fan of. After using this my skin always feels so clean and refreshed. I feel like this cleansing gel would be user-friendly for a wide variety of skintones but if you're unsure, do your research. There's plenty of reviews out there.

Bioderma Sensibio-There's quite a few micellar waters on the market now but this one is still the best in my opinion. It's interesting, a lot of the ones that claim to be fragrance-free and therefore suitable for sensitive skins still have a scent to them. Anyway, Bioderma is the original which took the world by storm. It's a backstage staple at many a fashion-week and is the best at breaking down+removing your makeup. It's not the greatest for eye makeup, so I recommend something like this for eyes but for base makeup it's fantastic.
