My Five Favourite Skincare Products



I am obsessed with skincare, in my opinion, it is one of the most important forms of self-care that there is.

I have tried so many different skincare products over the years, ranging from high-street to high-end. I have found that far too many just have not worked for me, and slowly, over the past seven years or so, I have built a collection of core products that I absolutely swear by. As an ex-sufferer with acne, my self-confidence still massively depends on the state of my skin, therefore this is one category of beauty product that I will always invest in.

So, here you have it, here are five of my favourite beauty products.

1. Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream


This moisturiser is so lusciously rich and indulgent. I have combination, sensitive skin, as a result of a course of Isotretinoin a couple of years ago, and wow my skin craves this moisturiser. I apply this very liberally, both morning and night, after a serum or oil. It's divine.

2. Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment


I have used this product for years, nearly as long as I have been using eye cream. It is particularly perfect if, like me, you are in your early twenties or late teens, and don't feel as though you need anti-aging products yet. It moisturises and brightens the eye area perfectly, whilst not irritating the sensitive eye. If you are wanting to introduce an eye cream into your skincare regime- then I would strongly recommend trying this one!

3. Caudalie Beauty Elixir 


This is a mist which dreams are made of. It is soothing, brightening and hydrating. On a hot summer's day, there is nothing more heavenly than spritzing this over your whole face. It is also perfect used before and after applying makeup for a seamless look.

4. Elemis Superfood Facial Oil 


If you are just beginning to venture into the world of facial oils, this is a great product to start with. I've found that, for many people, Elemis products are a trusted staple, and the Superfood collection is no different! The skin is the largest organ, and it needs feeding and hydrating with goodness.This does so exquisitely will, with the natural combination of broccoli seed oil, flaxseed oil and daikon radish. This product is a must!

5. Nuxe RĂªve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm 


This is my favourite lip balm of all time. It is indulgent, softening and effortlessly melts into the lips, with the luxurious bonus ingredient of honey. It is superbly hydrating and is particularly essential during the colder winter months.
