My favorite skincare products


Hey guys,
I'm pretty obsessed with skincare products and I really like finding some really amazing skincare products that work for me. I have oily to combination skin that's very sensitive as well so everything I am going to writing about is great for those who have a similar skin type to me. This blogpost is about products that I currently use and like for my skin and are those that I will repurchase.


I recently purchased the Clean and Clear exfoliating daily face wash from which to be honest I wasn't expecting much (I got it in a rush) but it's so worth it. It's the most gentle face wash I have ever used and it's also oil free which is perfect for my skin type. It has some beads in it but not the very harsh kind, very gentle.  With this the main thing that I have noticed is softer almost baby soft skin, which is the first thing it says on the packaging  And if you carry on using this it will stay that way! It's affordable and works so well.

The second is a cleanser that I LOVE! It's the Pevonia blemished skin cleanser from their spa teen range. I reviewed the Pevonia spa teen range here if you would like to check it out. You can use this everyday because it's so gentle. It contains citrus, grapefruit and lime in it which controls the oil factor for my skin without making it feel tight but also giving my complexion a glow and making it much more toned. Amazing. I can't live without this.

Jason natural apricot scrub has become my favorite weekly exfoliator really quickly. I reviewed it here if you would like to see it. This is fabulous. I use it once a week or when I am having a really bad skin day and it instantly makes it feel so good. I mean soooo good. I don't know how but on them particular days, when I use this it instantly makes my skin feel smooth, appear smooth and soft as well making my skin look almost clear. It's a brightening scrub and it does brighten your skin! Another favorite.

And lastly, I've been re purchasing this for years. My mum bought it for me years ago and since that day I love this face wash and I am probably not the only one. The Neutrogena visibly clear 2 in 1 face wash and mask is a really nice product. You need a tiny amount of this and it clears up any product you may have on your face. I love using this as a mask too which feels really nice and cooling on my skin. It helps prevent breakouts and strips the oil away. It can dry out your skin because of that so use it probably once or twice a week. I do notice a difference with this and a lot of the time I just use this as a mask as that works alot better for me. Its just really refreshing.
Moisturiser is an important factor for a skincare routine but also something that I think is really hard to find. I have so much trouble finding a moisturiser for my skin type because it's sensitive. These three are the only moisturisers that I have found to be gentle on my skin and ones that do the job.

 Etat Pur is an amazing brand and I have two of their mini moisturisers that I love using. The first is B25, the rich nourishing cream which is lovely. It's very rich and creamy which when I first read, I though it wouldn't suit my oily to combination skin because its targeted for normal to dry skin types but I gave it a go and it works so well for me. It contain olive oil, butter and mango in it (sounds so good!) which really helps to replenish your skin. It moisturises your skin for a very long time. Such a good hydrater.

The second is also by Etat Pur and this one is B23, the melting moisturising cream which sounds quite cool actually. Yes, it literally melts into your skin. This is absorbed really quickly and moisturises your skin throughout the day. Your skin will feel really soft and smooth as well. This one is great to use before you apply makeup. The full sizes (40ml) of the Etat Pur moisturisers don't even cost that much. I am sure they're both about £8 which in my opinion is such a good prices for amazing quality products!

And lastly, the Pevonia' spa teen range moisturiser. When I first used this I was shocked that there is a product that doesn't burn on my skin or create any redness. I love this. It costs alot but it's so worth it. Hands down the best moisturiser I have ever tried out. It contains ingredients like lemon and lime oils, kava root extract and vitamins A, E and C which are great for blemish prone or oily skin as it helps fights the bacteria. Oil free which great too.

I recently reviewed the Rio Rosa Mosqueta rosehip oil here which has very quickly become a favorite of mine. It hydrates and restores moisture, doesn't feel heavy or greasy or troubles your skin. Just a really great facial oil that helps improve the condition of your skin.

Like I said before, I adore Etat Pur. It's such a fabulous skincare range and the Pur actives are another one of my favorite products by them. I personally find A32-D-panthenol and A21- salicylic acid working best for my skin. You can read the review here if you like. If you get a breakout or anything along those lines, apply the salicylic acid Pur active and trust me it will make it heal. Salicylic acid has purifying properties as well as being an astringent. This is my go to item when I have skin issues. Throughout the time I used this, my skins has been so much better than before in terms of blemishes. I have noticed such a huge difference! The
 D-panthenol is for extremely dry skin and helps to improve your skins level of moisturistion  I use this during the cold days I guess cause during that times my skin can be pretty dry, like dry patches. Love this one as well.

These are my go to skincare products!
What are some of yours?u guys liked this post and sorry for it being so long!
