My Absolute Favourite Beauty Products At The Moment.

My skincare changes so much recently but I try to stick to the same brands and products as I can. My skin seems to be completely different from one day to the next so I try to only use products that really help benefit its state on that day. For example on days when I have worn makeup I will use a more thorough routine than on days where my skin has been bare. 

I have a huge basket of skin and hair care in my bathroom that is overflowing with amazing products. But I really always find myself drawn to the same products. As I said before I don't use all of them everyday but some products are more robust than others. These few products I find work with my skin no matter what condition it is in. I can adjust them and mix them around to really suit my skin from day to day. They are all very easy and quick to use too so you're not spending ages in the bathroom before bed.

As you'll be able to tell I like to stick with certain brands.

Dermalogica: Hydro Masque Exfoliant

Dermalogica is probably one of the only brands in the world I trust with every product. Every product I have ever tried of theirs, (20+) have all been incredible. Obviously not every skin product would work for my skin but when their products haven't suited mine they have worked wonders on someone I love. 

The Hydro Masque Exfoliant is their most recent product to launch. It has become a huge hit within my skin routine and something you'll often find me using on non makeup days to clear my skin of the excess natural oils. 

The Hydro Masque Exfoliant is the five minute mask that brings your skin back to life, renewing it and making it luminous. 

I love using this after I have scrubbed at my skin, using scrubs can dry your skin out and this allows your skin to be exfoliated of the left over dirt but without tugging at your skin.

Dermalogica: Nightly Lip Treatment

If you're the kind of person who uses a lot of vaseline then this is the product for you! When completing my night times skin care, my lips become very dry. Especially if I have worn lipstick all day. 

The Nightly Lip Treatment is an anti-aging lip treatment that helps fight wrinkles from laughing and smiling, whilst you sleep. The rich overnight formula keeps the skin hydrated, smooth and restores the skin around your lips.

I used to have to apply vaseline every few hours in the night and now I apply a thin layer of this and I am done until morning. Brilliant.

Dermalogica: Age Bright Clearing Serum

The Bright Clearing Serum two-in-one product helps fight bad skin by clearing and preventing breakouts. It is thick, luxurious and an amazing product to have in your skincare pile. 

For me this product is mainly used once my skin care is done as you're supposed to leave it on the skin. On days when I know I won't be wearing makeup, this is a great product to apply as it gives you a lovely natural glow. Making your skin look great whilst working wonders. 

Top Tip: I also use this before applying makeup as it works as a great alternative to primer. The sticky consistency it leaves on the skin allows you to get your makeup on and stay on.

Dermalogica: Age Bright Spot Fader

The Age Bright Spot Fader is one of my wonder products. However, it isn't something I choose to use every day.

This two-in-one spot treatment reduces the appearance of active breakouts and post-breakout marks. For me personally I get a lot of spots from the medication I use and having suffered with severe acne in my teens, I find that sometimes leaving the skin is the best spot treatment. As amazing as this product is, I wouldn't use it every day in fear of over using it and making your skin rely on it.

UpCircle: Coffee Face Scrub

Okay, If you do not own this product then what are you doing with your life? 

The Coffee Face Scrub is the perfect way to ensure that all the dirt and grime is scrubbed out of your skin. It is the exfoliators to beat all others. It works for both oily and combination skin: which is great cut my skin changes daily on this. Buffing away dry and dead skin to leave your skin smooth and clean.

It helps fight breakouts and truly is great! I would use this on days when my skin is very oily, if I am very spotty (time of the month especially) & when I have been wearing makeup and my makeup remover hasn't got to all the cracks. 

Best of all it is sustainable, vegan and cruelty free!

UpCircle: Cleansing Face Balm

The Cleansing Face Balm is THE product to get if you're looking to make a sustainable swap. 

The Face Balm is the best way to remove your makeup without using wipes or harsh chemicals. I use this by rubbing it all over my face and rubbing away the makeup with a warm cloth. It breaks down all your makeup within seconds and allows it to be wiped away. Getting rid of your makeup, impurities and skin pollution. 

I would use this in my first step of my skincare when I have been wearing makeup, then I would use the coffee scrub to get anything left behind. 

Again it is sustainable, vegan and cruelty free. 

Like It On Top: Lip Scrub Protection

If you're looking for something to help get rid of lipstick, dead skin and just generally smooth out your lips, then this is the best product for you. 

Not only is it practical by the Lip Scrub Protection is light weight and easy to use. It is used to exfoliate, hydrate and moisturise your lips without damaging them. It is also made with natural ingredients which is wonderful.

I would use this around three times a week, as to not over exfoliate my lips. Using this product before taking my makeup off or before my skin care routine begins. Then wiping it off with a warm flannel. 

Dr Botanicals: Apothecary Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask

This is a product I wasn't really sure of when I first got it but it is a wonderful mask to use once or twice a week to really hydrate your skin. The Regenerating Sleeping Mask is to be put on your skin and left on all evening! It helps to energise your skin and bring it back to life. 

I would usually put this on when I have had a busy day of full face makeup and my skin has been scrubbed and scrubbed to get all the makeup and dirt out of my skin. It allows my skin to recharge and really hydrate after a hard day of heavy skin products.

Free from synthetic perfumes, colourants and parabens. Also cruelty free, vegan and PETA-approved.

Grow Gorgeous: Hair Growth Serum

Grow Gorgeous is a brand I have loved for a really long time. The Hair Growth Serum is filled with caffeine to wake up the roots and stimulate hair growth. This is wonderful for those who experience thin or patchy hair like myself. 

After my first child was born I had a whole chunk of my hair fall out and this product was amazing with helping the regrowth. I tend to use this a few nights a week on the roots and parting of my hair.

Using it on days when I would be washing my hair the next day as it is an oil and can make your hair very greasy. It is easy to apply and one of my all time products ever!
