Hi loves, now, before getting very much in to make up I was never a skincare person, like at all, I would never moisturise before make up and never really take care of my skin at all (and I wondered why I suffered with spots and dry skin! Ahh the folly of youth). Anyway, since getting in to beauty bloggers/YouTubers and then starting my own blog, it has very much become a love of mine. So I thought I would talk you through some of my favourites at the moment.
Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Water
Before I became obsessed I was very much a make up wipe girl (The horror I know?! Chastise me as you will) and I wondered why I would wake up with panda eyes and make up all over my pristine white sheets. And since becoming more switched on to skincare I have been loving Micellar water for removing make up, I loved the Garnier one for how quick it got all my pounds of make up off, but I have sensitive skin and it tended to irritate my skin slightly, so recently I picked up the Simple one. I used to love Simple products when I was younger, this was the brand my mother used so she would always just pick me up their make up removers, and since becoming reacquainted I have definitely rekindled my love. It just gets make up off so effortlessly, and I never had red patches of irritation when scrubbing my waterproof mascara off, so this one is definitely a winner in my book.
Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean 3 in 1 Wash Off Cleanser
Another cleanser! This is great for me in the mornings, just in case any make up got left behind in my rush to hop in to bed, and it provides a nice base before moisturiser, as you apply it then wipe it away with a cotton pad. It really leaves my skin so soft, and provides a smooth surface for the rest of my skincare and make up routine.
Simple Kind To Skin Protecting Moisture Cream
I have been loving this before make up ever since picking it up, it's not oily or anything and it sinks in so quick before applying the rest of my make up. As the foundation I use sets quite stiff, it can look cakey without a good moisturised base, and this does the job perfectly, and again as its Simple, it's nourishing and kind to my oh so sensitive skin.
Simple Kind To Skin Vital Vitamin Night Cream
Another thing I was never a user of, as I thought it was for older women, WRONG KIDS! Start as you mean to go on to retain youthful skin. Obviously I'm 20 so I'm not sagging quite yet, even with the stresses of drama school, but this definitely helps to retain elasticity, and as I have suffered with awfully dry skin I know that my skin can be prone to patches of dryness, but with this soaking in my skin overnight I definitely don't have that problem, and have never encountered it again since using night cream, so I'm so glad I made the discovery.
Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Super Serum
Casually my mother gave me a LOAD of Soap & Glory products she had just lying around (winner) and these little samples of the youthful serum were a part of that little collection (along with two body butters, the cleanser, foot scrub, hand cream and exfoliating wash, love you mother, babe) and I only got a 3 day sample but my god I have to pick this up. Not only did my face feel amazing but it also helped keep my make up on a lot longer, with rehearsals racking up at the moment my make up has definitely been slipping and sliding (ew!) but I could not believe how much this helped?! I'm so glad I got to try it, and will definitely be picking up a full bottle for myself, it smells a bit strong but you definitely get used to it and it's not overly potent. Such a winner!
