Dear Roses and Lilies,
No matter if it's hot or cold outside, taking care of your skin is essential. But how many products does one really need?
Browsing through websites and forums, you will find more than enough reviews and info on virtually any cosmetic product. So it's up to each one of us what we choose and how much time and money we want to invest.
Keeping an eye on my budget and on the ingredients lists as well, these are the products I selected this far from the pool of skincare stuff on the market
So I've gotten used to the Bioderma Sensibio H2O micelle solution - for removing makeup or just refreshing when I'm at home.
The AslaVital Revitalizing Cleansing Milk is ideal for sensitive skin and it contains goji berry extracts and clay.
The Clarins Toning Lotion with Iris and the HydraQuench Cream-Gel are suitable for oily skin but, because they are both quite fragrant, I only use them as an aromatherapy "fix".
Otherwise, I am a fan of Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, which doesn't contain any fragrance, so it is less likely to irritate my skin.
For calming down and moisturizing my skin during the night, I've discovered a really budget friendly product from Dr. SCHELLER - Soothing Intensive Serum. It has got a lineup of natural ingredients, including jojoba oil.
For my eyes, I use the Korres Evening Primrose eye cream and for particularly puffy mornings - Clarins Eye Revive Beauty Flash. They work wonders on tired eyes!
For dry lips, I generously apply the yummy mango lip balm from TheBodyShop. It moisturizes really well and it tastes sweet.
Last but not least, when I don't feel like using moisturizer and applying foundation, I use the Bioderma Sensibio AR BB Cream. It's aimed at sensitive skins prone to rosacea. Lucky for me, I don't have that problem. But I still like to use it because it calms down any redness. This will be particularly useful during the cold winter months.
For the rest of the skin on my body, I just use rich shower creams, exfoliate when I remember to and apply cream in the form of sunscreen if I'm sunbathing.
What's your skincare routine?
