When I was first old enough to get “into” skincare, I remember picking up a moisturiser from Simple and slathering it on my face every now and again.
Up until recently, my skincare regime still consisted of only Simple products albeit there was a Day and Night Cream and an Eye Cream thrown in there as well as a Cleanser and Toner.
But with my 27th birthday rapidly approaching, I decided that it was time I started investing more in my skincare. After all, it’s my face. It’s just there for everyone to see and, well, I figured I should probably start taking it a bit more seriously.
I mean, it’s only a matter of time before those dreaded fine lines and wrinkles start appearing right!? Please no!
And while I’m by no means a skincare expert, I have found some products that I freakin’ love and am so glad to have added to my routine. So if you’re looking to step up your skincare game or just fancy treating yourself to some new things (it is Friday after all!), here are three skincare bits you should treat yourself to this week:
1. L’Oreal Pure Clay Face Masks
My skin has been looking a little dull and meh recently and I’d been looking at something that would help pep it back up. I saw these L’Oreal masks ages ago and finally snapped up the Detox and Glow masks and I am in sweet L-O-V-E.
They’re made of a combination of pure clays and I have a brightening and exfoliating mask and one for sucking out the impurities from my face. They both work like a dream and I’ve been combining them or using them on their own.
My skin feels smooth, more glowing, and I’ve noticed a real reduction in redness from spot scars. They’re now a staple in my pamper night routine!
2. L’Oreal Fine Flowers Cleansing Milk
This is, I think, a newbie from L’Oreal and when I spotted it on offer whilst doing the big shop I snapped it up. And boy oh boy am I glad I did!
Designed for normal to sensitive skin, this cleansing milk combines extracts of Rose and Jasmine Flowers, in a make-up removing milk. It smells divine and is silky smooth when applied to the skin.
It removes all traces of make-up and feels really nourishing – kind of like a big, soft blanket on this skin. I’ve been using this morning and evening and am loving it. Not bad for an impulse buy!
3. Pixi Glow Tonic
Yup, I’m still singing this bad boy’s praises. I was nervous to use something with glycolic acid in on my face but there’s a reason every man and his dog calls this a ‘holy grail’ product. I shared my thoughts on this in this post in case you fancy a read!
If you’re feeling a weekend pamper, head on down to Boots and pick up one of these babies – I promise you won’t regret it!
