Cleanse & Tone
A huge favorite to remove my makeup with is the Lancome Eau Micellaire Douceur. This is a mild micellaire water with moisturizing factors that removes the makeup easily. The product can also be used around the eyes and lips, and is also suitable for sensitive skin. I also love using this product for a quick cleanse in the morning and evening to remove any dirt and impurities.
Pixi Glow Tonic has been a favorite in my collection for a long time. This is an exfoliating toner with a peeling effect that gives a gorgeous glow to the skin. The toner is great for oily skin as it removes excess oils and impurities. It is suitable for all skin types, and is also safe to use on sensitive skin as it balances and heals the skin. I use this morning and evening after cleansing.
A new favorite in my mask collection is the Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask. This is a clay mask that gives the skin a deep cleanse, and draw out impurities and deep dwelling pore cloggers. It is suitable for all skin types, but is especially great for oily skin as it is oil controlling and prevents acne. My skin feels so soft and clean after using this product, and I try to use it at least ones a week to deep cleanse my skin.
Another huge mask favorite is the GlamGlow GravityMud Firming Treatment. This is a peel-off mask to help firm and lift the skin for an ultimate plump and glow. The mask is suitable for all skin types. GlamGlow has done many different limited edition versions of this mask in different and fun colors, and right now my favorite ones to use is the purple and pink glitter from their 2018 holiday set. I use this mask two to three times a month, and it leaves my skin feeling fabulous, glowing and so soft.
Serum & Moisturize
The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution has been a life saver for my skin. Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin and helps exfoliate the inside walls of pores to fight the appearance of blemishes and for better visible skin. I struggle with pigmentation from acne and have found this product to help a ton with my pigmentation, texture and blemishes. As this is an acid, it is not safe to use on sensitive or peeling skin. Remember to always use SPF when using acid treatments as your skin’s sensitivity to sun may increase and cause sunburn.
Dr. Ankerstjerne Anti-pollution Day Cream gives the ultimate luxurious spa feeling with an amazing scent and instant moisture, and has therefore become a huge favorite in my collection. The product contains great active ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, which is the bodys natural source to moisture, and has anti-age factors which gives the skin a plumping effect while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This day cream is also a fantastic base for makeup.
Another favorite for moisture is the Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator. Moisture Surge has been a favorite of mine for several years, and has been a lifesaver for my oily skin as it is a non-greasy gel. The moisturizer sinks nicely in to the skin giving a moisture boost and plumped feel to the skin. The product contains hyaluronic acid, aloe water and caffeine, which will give a plumped, dewy and healthy looking skin. This moisturizer fits all skin types, but Clinique also offers a more hydrating version of this product for dryer skin who needs extra moisture – The Moisture Surge Intense.
