Seven Skincare SavioursHey Guys! Sorry it has been so long between blogs… I have been super busy. But I am back and I am going to try really hard to post on a weekly basis. I have had a serious obsession with skincare lately and I am constantly researching which products to purchase, so I decided to write a blog about my holy grail products. I hope you enjoy!

1. Purity, Philosophy from $18.00

It’s hard to explain how I feel about this product. I have pretty normal skin – its dry, has the occasional minor breakout during that time of the month, but other than that I shouldn’t really complain (although I still do). The reason I like this cleanser so much is because it doesn’t make my skin dryer than it is, and it also doesn’t aggravate or cause my skin to breakout. So I suppose you could say, my love for this product is not based on the positive effects it does have, but rather on the negative effects that it does not have – and that, my friends, is enough for me. A cleanser isn’t supposed to leave you with glowing, plump, youthful skin, its just supposed to cleanse (shock horror) – you can leave the rest to your moisturisers, exfoliators and face masks. Don’t get me wrong, its a beautiful product – and I searched for a cleanser that didn’t irritate my skin for such a long time – but I wouldn’t say that I feel like my face looks significantly “better” for using it. Look, just trust me, I will never stop using this product.

Available at Mecca.

2. Clear Improvement Mask, Origins $25-$39

This clay mask is beautiful. I generally use it on a monthly rotation with other masks and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth! After I have used this mask, it feels as though my face has been thoroughly cleaned to the very last pore. It never breaks me out, and is gentle on the skin. I wouldn’t use this more than twice a week as it can be a little drying, but it is one of my favourite masks to use for a deep clean and freshen up!

Available at Mecca.

3. Hydrating Light Moisturiser, Simple $8.00

This moisturiser is a God send in the winter months. I apply a thick layer before bed and it feels like my skin has had a huge glass of water. It has no fragrance and is really gentle on the skin. It doesn’t sit on my skin which is something I can’t stand in a moisturiser. It leaves my skin supple and hydrated – which is exactly what you want from a moisturiser!

Available at Coles, Priceline, Chemist Warehouse etc.

4. Never A Dull Moment, Origins Scrub $43

This appropriately named exfoliator does exactly as it claims. Its thick texture along with the tiny exfoliating grains literally polishes your skin. After I have used this product, I feel a million bucks! My skin looks bright, fresh and supple after every single use. I use it twice a week just as a skin treatment. It is a pricey product but I will definitely be repurchasing  because no other product leaves my skin looking this fresh, bright and youthful!

Available at Mecca.

5. Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater, Mario Badescu $10

This is such a simple, beautiful product. It freshens up my face even on its dullest days. I love using this in the winter just to give my skin that extra lift before or after applying my makeup. I am never without this spray when I travel as it is great for during and after a flight just for some quick moisture. Its super cheap and doesn’t irritate my skin at all!

Available at Mecca.

6. Drying Lotion, Mario Badescu $24

As the saying goes…If it’s good enough for Kylie, it’s good enough for me… Okay, that’s definitely not a thing… but this product is amazing. It dries out any imperfections on the skin and although you go to bed looking like some sort of a dalmatian, it is totally worth the weird stares from your partner. You wake up with any pimples looking A LOT better, the inflammation is significantly reduced and it leaves every blemish looking a lot less irritated from the picking and prodding that you put it through the night before. The product is quite cheap and definitely worth it for when you need a quick fix!

Available at Mecca.

7. Eye Cream, QV $12.00

This is a simple, great eye cream. I don’t really have any eye issues except for the fact that they get really dry so I need to make sure that they are moisturised before applying any makeup. I use this cream nightly which keeps them from being dry for the whole night and next day. It has no fragrance and is super gentle for that delicate skin surrounding your eye. I highly recommend it if you have dry skin around your eyes.

Available at Priceline.
