I tried a fair few new products throughout 2014, some I downright disliked, some were ok & these above, I've loved & if I haven't already repurchased, I will do so very soon!!
Simple eyemakeup remover - I've talked many times about this & no matter how much I spend on other products, nothing works like this little beauty. Great product for little money.
She Anti Aging Rosehip Oil - I found this little beauty in TK Maxx one day & as I'd been about to try the Trilogy Rosehip Oil, I though I'd try this one first for £5. It's such a good, non-greasy oil & it has really helped (along with other products!) to help clear up my acne scarring. It's an Australian brand though & I can't find it anywhere else in the UK :(
Indeed Labs Hydraluron - Again, another product I've spoken about before & it is a total saviour for dry, parched, dehydrated skin. You only need the tiniest amount of this clear gel/serum & layer your normal day/night cream over it. It helps your skin to retain any moisture & I really notice when I stop using it. I'm now on my 3rd tube!
Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel - this was part of the Elemis gift set I won on a Twitter giveaway & I'll admit, the word 'peel' put me off trying it for quite a while due to my rosacea & sensitive skin. I needn't have worried as it's so, so gentle & my skin looks radiant when I've used it. It does have a super fruity scent but it doesn't bother me & is a lovely thick cream. Apply & leave for 10 minutes to work it's magic.
Botanics 100% Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz - I bought this one day when I was looking for a soothing toner to alternate with my Clarins Exfoliating toner & it's a great product. It feels really moisturising & doesn't leave your skin feeling stripped, as some toners can.
Botanics Firming Day Cream - another random purchase that ended up being a great choice. A lovely, soothing, non-greasy day cream with SPF 15.
Indeed Labs Retinol Reface - this was a product I'd wanted to try for ages after reading many rave blog reviews. It's a really thick balm-like cream that I apply at night under my usual night cream or oil. As it contains retinol, an ingredient known for it's ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines, I don't use it if I've used the Elemis peel or the Clarins exfoliating toner to make sure my skin doesn't become too sensitive.
Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Gentle toner - I'm now on my 3rd bottle of this too & I really think that this is the product that has most transformed & helped my skin over the last 18 months. It's a very gentle acid toner but don't be afraid to try it even if you have sensitive skin. I've never had any reaction or even slight redness from using it but it's helped significantly with reducing my scarring on my chin.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water - I've been a huge fan of micellar waters since the minute they were introduced & although I like many of them, this one by far offers the best value for money. I use as my first cleanse to remove my makeup before second cleansing with an oil or balm.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + - Clinically proven to correct marks & blemishes, this is another product that I swear by & can tell a huge difference in my skin if I stop using it. It's really moisturising & a little goes a long way. I use about two grains of rice worth for my chin & cheeks applying only where I have scarring & then apply my usual day or night cream on top. I don't use if I've used any other products with acids or retinol though.
So what skincare are you swearing by lately, any recommendations I should be trying?
