Nothing feels better than glowing, healthy complexion. As a make-up lover I was underestimating skin care role in my life. I was a 2-step cleanser+moisturiser beauty routine kind of girl who was covering herself under tones of make-up, laughing at others at the age of 20 starting to use anti-aging skin care products. And here I am now, still in my early 20’s being overly excited with new products and formulas.
With my, now, 7-step both morning and night beauty routine (it’s been a loooong journey), here are my top 5 products that I’ve tried and have seen amazing results on myself*.
*I have a combination and sensetive skin with tendency to clogged pores.
Glicolic acid is basically a solution to every nightmare and mistake you have made during your youthful period – bad lifestyle choices, acne, sun over-exposion, and unavoidable pollution. This amazing serum made my skin radiant, firm and visibly brighter. I use it every morning before moisturiser, after washing and toning my face.
I mentioned this product in my October favorites (link) and I got so obsessed with it that now I can’t believe how I managed to live without this tonic. Retinol is a super-multitasker – it’s essential in acne treatment, brightens and evens the skin tone and is anti-ageing. Added jasmine flower extract protects and neutralises irritation that can appear during retinol use. I use this tonic daily after cleansing.
A little goes a long way! This moisturiser changed my make-up game – I use a tiny amount of this cream after applying serums in the morning and night. The Rich Cream is rich in Argan, Avocado and Evening Primrose Oil to leave your face hydrated and glowing from within.
If I would ever consider myself proud of ‘discovering’ a 100% and autentic brand, it would be over Tata Harper. Previous oily/combination skin type focused cleansers I used, left my skin feeling tense, dehydrated and slighly irritated, but since I started using this Clarifying Cleanser, I don’t have this problem.
Yet another mulitasker on my list – this Sunday Riley U.F.O. Face Oil rich in salicylic acid not only exfoliates, helps with acne and blackheads treatment, but prevents from spot causing dirt and bacteria causing future break-outs. I use it instead of Good Genes Serum during my night time routine after toning.
Salicylic acid is my becoming my favorite ingredient! This 100% natural and nontoxic mask is also powered by AHA peeling formula, so you will definitely notice pore visibility and redness reduction. I use this mask once or twice a week, depending of my needs, leaving it for 15 minutes and then massaging for exfoliating and peeling effect.
