After a recent clear out and organisation session, I realised one thing is for certain: I have too many products. Fewer than some, of course, but way more than I’ll ever use.
Even with a vast selection, we all find ourselves reaching for our favourites so I put together this series so you can check out mine.
First up: Skincare.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (£15.50, Boots)
This blemish correcting cream from French brand La Roche-Posay is on the pricier end of my collection but here’s the thing: it works! No, it’s not a miracle overnight product but, over time, I’ve seen an improvement in the appearance of spots and blemishes on my skin.
Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser (£5.99, Superdrug)
I have a few products from this range (review coming soon!) but I feel like this is the one everyone can get on with. It’s not only a good cleanser, it improves skin’s radiance and it’s light on the wallet!
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief (£24.95, allbeauty)
I wasn’t sure about including this since I’ve only tried a sample-sized pot and don’t yet know if it’s worth the splurge for the full size but I wanted to mention one particular quality of this gel formula moisturiser- it can be applied over makeup. I’ve been using it to give my skin a little moisture when my makeup looks dry or cakey without ruining my hard work.
Avon Anew Advanced Resurfacing Peel Acid Pads (RRP £15, can be cheaper, Avon)
I rave about these glycolic acid facial pads all the time. Having tried numerous brands, Avon is the one I always come back to. There are cheaper or better value alternatives out there but, for me, the acid concentration in these means they really improve the look of my skin.
Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Gel (£1.50 Boots)
The bargain price tag is a definite bonus for this cooling eye gel. It doesn’t work miracles if you have dark circles but it’s super hydrating and refreshingly cool to apply to the under eyes on a morning or after a long day.
