I’m usually pretty steadfast in my skincare routine, I know what works for me and I stick with it. That being said, over the last couple of months I’ve been trying out a few different bits, some were Christmas presents + some I picked up in the States, and I thought I’d share my thoughts so far.
Firstly, my mama did so good this Christmas and picked me up a pot of the Kiehl’s Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment for Christmas – what a babe. Because I’m severely anaemic, dark circles are something I really struggle with on a daily basis, and I’m always on the hunt for something to aid in the fight against them. I’ve been applying this generously under my eyes with my ring finger before bed and whilst I have yet to notice a difference in dark circles, my eyes feel plumper, smoother and generally much nicer, so it’s got a thumbs up from me so far.
Whilst I was in the States and splurging in Sephora, I used some of my VIB points on the Josie Maran 500 Point Perk. Inside was a mini bottle of the Josie Maran Argan Oil, which I’ve used and loved for a while, but what really piqued my interest was the Josie Maran Argan Oil Light. I’ve been using this in the mornings, applying it after washing my face and about half an hour before I put my makeup on, and so far I’m loving it. It sinks in fast and doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily, but when I use this my skin feels plumper + glowier, and just generally looks much healthier. Think I might need to place an order for a full sized bottle of this!
I also bagged a sample sized tube of Glam Glow Supermud, which I’ve used once and have one more use to get out of it. I put this to the test when my skin was freaking out post Christmas chocolate binge, and was pleasantly surprised. It helped clear things up quickly and didn’t leave my skin feeling dry or tight like most clay based masks do.
And lastly a shout out for the Foreo Luna Play – finally a more affordable way to get your facial brush on! I’ve been using this in the mornings with my Lush Kalamazoo Face Wash and I love the combination, leaves my skin feeling soft, bright and happy.
