SKINCARE I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW
Since everybody has been asking me about my skincare routine (absolutely nobody has asked me); about 6 months ago I started to really prioritise getting my skin clear and allocating 15 minutes in the morning and evening to my skincare routine. It’s not only worked wonders for my skin but is super therapeutic *self care vibes*.
Here are my current go-to’s:
Karen Farley Smoothing Moisturiser
This stuff is the goods. The formula is so soft and smooth and is extremely moisturising. It’s thick but won’t make your face feel oily, I use it on no-makeup days.
Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser
Perfect when you’re feeling some breakouts coming or you’d like to get rid of some spots, this facial cleanser gets deep into your pores and makes your face feel so clean and oil free.
Mario Badescu Lip Wax
If you haven’t tried this bad boy then you have been missing out! Ditch your supermarket chap stick and spend an extra fiver on this lip wax. This beauty will keep your lips balmed all day and you won’t need to keep reapplying every 20 minutes. Seriously, this stuff is next level.
Trilogy Very Gentle Restoring Facial Oil
Glides on your face like a dream and makes your skin feel so refreshed without leaving it feeling super caked in oil. I’ve tried at least five different oils in the past year and I really rate this one.
Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Face Mask
Truth be told I actually received this as a gift when my mother-in-law got it as a ‘gift with purchase’ but I would seriously buy this little pink tube myself. This overnight mask goes on like a thick moisturiser before you sleep and when you wake up your skin feels lush and soft.
Ok I know this isn’t skincare but it deserves an honorable mention. Actually it really is in a league of its own, but I digress. If you haven’t heard of olaplex and you colour your hair in any way then you need to get on this! It’s absolutely genius patented technology which means that you can’t get your hands on anything as good within the hair care market. Olaplex number 3 is a leave in hair treatment that strengthens the bonds of your hair. I’ve been using this since going blonde in 2016 and I haven’t had ANY split end probs since then – amazing right?! Don’t sleep on olaplex. (btw they also have amazing shampoo and conditioner in the range)
