I wasn't planning on writing a blog post on my favourite skincare products, but I got the idea today. There isn't a particular reason as to why the thought hadn't crossed my mind, maybe because I think my skincare routine is very, very basic. There's also a little skincare routine post, from last year. I think I'm also going to do favourite hair products, and maybe even fashion items. Seems like January is all about my 2014 favourites, so far. I've already done my makeup favourites and most viewed blog posts.
There's one makeup remover that I have used in the past year - for those few times I actually wore makeup - the Loreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution. This is the best makeup remover I remember using, but I really haven't tried that many, and this product is far from perfection. It removes makeup well - I use it for face, lips and eyes, as it says - and it's very cheap, but it has a slightly unpleasant smell. Even though it says it's safe for the eyes, if I get a lot of product on a cotton pad and put that on my eye area, it can sting a tiny bit. I should also add that this is the only micellar solution I have ever tried, so I can't compare it to anything else. I haven't used it with waterproof mascara - which is my nightmare - so I don't know how it performs, but I feel like it wouldn't be strong enough to completely remove it. In addition, after using it my skin feels very clean and tight.
With a makeup-free face I can move on to cleansing. The Body Shop Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash* has been my choice - review here. It makes my skin feel fresh, soft and clean every time I use it. Let's have a moment of silence, because The Body Shop is no longer available in Cyprus, all of their stores have closed. I don't know how I'm still standing, after hearing the news.
I'll admit the next step is not something I do every time - lazy girl here - but since I don't own a toner, I spray some of Mac Fix Plus on my freshly cleansed face. I know it's probably not indented to be a toner, but I have it lying around with no use for it, and one day I got the idea. So many other toners out there are just watery sprays with vitamins and stuff and Fix Plus is a skin refresher. I bought it because I thought it would make my makeup last longer if I sprayed it after completing a look. But it really didn't do anything for me, and I actually didn't like the way it made my makeup look after spraying it.
Moving on to a very big favourite of mine. The Ren Invisible Pores Detox Mask - review here. This product never fails me, it always makes my skin feel clean, clear, soft and fresh like you wouldn't believe. Even though it's addressed to combination-to-oily skins, it works perfectly fine for a normal-to-dry kind of girl like myself. Just look at the before and after pictures on my review.
Last item is again a product that I adore, but sadly I've completely run out of. I'm talking about the Nuxe Crème Fraîche de Beauté Enrichie which is a 24h soothing and moisturising rich cream. I'm not sure about the 24h because I haven't used it in a while, but it smells so lovely, and moisturises my skin brilliantly. I'm currently trying the Light version of this, which is lovely, but not as moisturising. I really can't wait to get my hands on a new tube of this cream.
So that is it for my favourite skincare of 2014. I know that it's very basic and simple, but I've told you before that I am a rather lazy person.
