My Current Skincare & Haircare Favourites

Moisturiser:

I recently bought this ‘Lift-Me Day Cream‘ from Paris skincare brand Langé in TK Maxx for £16.99. On the Langé website it’s priced at $112! Obviously the price doesn’t actually mean that the product is going to be good, however, I have tried this for the past couple of weeks (on its own and as a make-up base) and can’t fault it! It smells amazing, it’s super moisturising and makes my skin feel silky smooth! I don’t know how good it is at reducing signs of ageing because I have quite young skin but it definitely made me look more awake in the morning and brightened up my skin. I would say however that I don’t think it is worth the full price on their website, I think there are so many affordable moisturisers which are probably equally as good. If you want to try it, I have linked it from TK Maxx here.

Makeup Remover:

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

I literally swear by the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. My skin gets agitated every time I use makeup wipes – it goes bright red and stings like crazy! Makeup wipes never seem to fully remove my makeup whereas this cleansing water removes every last inch. After I started using this I found that the amount of spots I got reduced so much too, even my boyfriend likes to use it every now and then.

Face Wash: 

Clinique Sonic Brush & Liquid Facial Soap

These are probably the best purchases I have ever made. My skin was breaking out constantly whilst I was in secondary school until I discovered the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush and Liquid Facial Soap. I use the mild facial soap which is for dry combination skin as I usually have an oily T zone but it also comes in extra mild and oily. I paid £79 for the brush and £10 for the soap however there is a skincare gift set with the brush, soap and bag for £79! Click here to find the offer on the John Lewis website.

Skin Treatments: 

The Ordinary

These are my skincare newbies! I am still trying them out but so far so good! I am using the Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Solution 10% (£8.00) today which I applied in the morning and will apply again before I go to sleep. This creamy product targets dullness, uneven skin tone and signs of age. The Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% (£5.00) is a mild superficial peeling formulation which aims to improve uneven skin tone, textural irregularities and fine lines. After reading The Ordinary ‘about’ page I was certain that I needed to try these products so I’m intrigued to see if these products improve the appearance of my skin or not.

Shampoo and Conditioner: 

Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner

Last but not least, the Herbal Essences Daily Detox Shine shampoo and conditioner. These products keep my hair soft, frizz-free and squeaky clean! I have recommended it to most of my friends and anyone who has asked because I love it so much. The white tea & mint fragrance makes my hair smell so fresh, I can’t get enough of it! I have struggled to find it in supermarkets but it is almost always in Boots or Superdrug. Another top tip which I find stops my hair from going greasy easily is blow drying it straight after I have washed it.

Please let me know if you have enjoyed reading this post by commenting or liking! I’m also interested in hearing if you have tried any of these products and what you think of them?
