My skin has been a real pain lately, with lots of hormonal breakouts and those horrible little bumps right under the surface. I am pretty sure that it has something to do with the amount of cake I've had recently for mine and Mia's birthday. Anyway... I am currently sticking to a simple regime and these are my favourite products to help me soothe my skin, get rid of the scarring and prevent future breakouts.
It is my go to cleanser right now, as it is simply amazing! It removes all traces of makeup and dirt and feels soo, sooo luxurious. It smells lovely too and leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth and nourished. There is nothing worse than tight and stripped skin when it comes to gels, but this one offers the complete opposite result, as it transforms into a silky oil. BEAUTIFUL product and one of my all time favourite cleansers.
2.Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner*(£17.50)
I noticed that whenever I stop using an exfoliating toner, my skin just doesn't like it, so I need one in my regime at all times. This is my current favourite and I might just stick to it forever, as it smells amazing too, like all Merumaya products (I am obsessed with that scent!). It contains AHA's to gently get rid of dead skin cells, detoxify, cleanse and refine pores, plus Hyaluronic acid & natural betaine to provide moisture and add plumpness. It leaves my skin looking much clearer and I see a huge different in the texture of it, especially when I apply makeup, as it just goes on smoother.
3.Sond Revitalising Face Serum*(£42.00)
I was kindly sent a selection of Sond products a while ago and this serum is my top pick from the bunch. I use it after the exfoliating toner and it works perfectly with it, as it soothes and hydrates. Exactly what you need as the next step after exfoliating. As I am almost 30, I want to add more anti ageing products to my regime and this serum promises to firm, smooth and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which is exactly what I am looking for. I love the light silky texture of this serum and my skin always feels lovely when I use it.
I actually use this mask as a moisturiser every single night and it is super hydrating and helps to even out my skintone and reduce dark spots etc. I need the tiniest amount and it works wonders overnight. I can feel the moisture boost instantly as the mask is cooling ans soothing and I wake up to a more luminous complexion. It is suitable for all skin types and I find it very effective.
5. Merumaya Skin Brightening Exfoliating Peel* (£19.50)
I adore this mask and I always use it to reduce scarring and to make my skin feel smoother and clearer. It is such a great product and the price is very affordable. It just proves, that you don't have to spend a fortune to get fantastic results. It not only makes my complexion more even, but also gets rid of congestion and prevents future breakouts. I love how it makes my skin feel and the glow you are left with is comparable to the one I experienced after a professional glycolic acid peel.Can't recommend this peel enough. It's amazing! I am actually going to use it right after I am done with this blog post!
There you have it, my top 5 skincare products for the month of June/July. I just have to make sure to be more consistent with my regime and I am sure I will completely get rid of all the marks my recent breakouts left on my skin.
