I wouldn’t say I have an extensive skincare routine just an effective one. You don’t need heaps of products to achieve healthy skin just ones that actually work, although it can take time to find the right ones for you. I’ve always thought skincare is just as important as makeup, if not more so. Having a clean base to start with before applying makeup means that half the work is already done (and saves previous time in the morning). These three products have worked wonders on my skin so I thought I’d share my holy grail products and save you guys some hassle.
KIEHL’S ULTRA FACIAL MOISTURISER
Fortunately for me growing up and as a teenager I always had quite clear skin (family genes helping me out) but I did always get really dry patches so naturally I sought after moisturisers. I could never find ones good enough, they’d be too thick and greasy or you’d have to use so much product that it wasn’t worth it. Until I discovered this one by Kiehl’s. This moisturiser is in all honesty a dream! The consistency is so light and you only need to use a tiny amount to cover your whole face. Despite using only a small amount of product it lasts for hours and hours making your skin feel wonderful, plus it’s a great base for daily makeup. This is the perfect moisturiser for glowy hydrated skin suitable for any skin type.
CLARISONIC ARIA FACIAL CLEANSER
There are tonnes of facial cleansers on the market, whether you’re on a budget or looking at high end. So which one should you buy? Well, I did my research and I was extremely thorough. From reading loads of reviews to watching YouTube videos, I wanted to find the best one out there but not waste my money. I decided upon the Clarisonic Aria and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve had this for a little over 6 months now and it truly has made a huge difference to my skin texture. Even after using it for only a few weeks it made my skin super soft and became a crucial part of my skincare routine. This particular model has 3 speed settings and you can choose between 1 or 2 minutes, this way you can adjust it to suit you. It comes with a drying stand and charger, but you hardly ever have to charge it. All this does come at a cost but the link above to Current Body gets you a £56 discount. High praise for a good reason, it really is worth the investment.
CLARISONIC REFRESHING GEL CLEANSER
Naturally a facial cleanser needs a good companion and this one does the job. When you receive the facial cleanser you get a small tester of this gel to try it with and that was me sold. Applying only a tiny amount per use to create a foamy lather that pairs extremely well with the Aria or works well on it’s own. The cleansing stage of any skincare routine is important and this product is very effective, your skin will be left feeling completely refreshed.
