My Skincare Secrets

As you've probably gathered from previous posts, I'm a real skincare junkie. I love testing out new products and making my skin the best it can be. I've always preferred a simpler skincare routine, which I'm sure many of us are. With a few products it's easier to get into the routine of using them regularly, don't you think?

The last few months I've been switching up my daily skincare routine a bit, to suit the hectic every day life that I'm living at the moment. I'm still using the Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser (read my review here); a product I can't simply live without. When it comes to cleaning my face however, I've gone for some new products!
Formula 10.0.6 is a cruelty free brand that I've been using for years, so technically I've rather gone back than updated my skincare routine. The Best Face Forward Daily Foaming Cleanser is an old favourite of mine! It's enriched with passionfruit, chamomile and green tea extracts, and claims to wash away oil and impurities for a sparkling, clear and healthy looking complexion every day.

Big, bold claims is something pretty much all beauty brands use, but happily this cleanser lives up to its claims. My usually quite oily t-zone doesn't feel that oily anymore, and the absence of pores and pimples has been amazing. And the amazing, fresh smell don't make it any worse! Retailing only at £7, it's an amazing alternative for more expensive, high end cleansers. 

Another one of their products that has come back into my weekly skincare routine is the Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask with strawberry, rosemary and yarrow. Just like any other clay mask, it dries on your skin and reveals a healthy looking skin when rinsed away. However, this is the only product from Formula 10.0.6 that isn't vegan. The mud mask contains the animal by-product carmine,  which is a red pigment that comes from the female cochineal insect. 

A brand that is relatively new for me, is Nip + Fab. Just as Formula 10.0.6, it's a cruelty free brand of which most products are vegan (they have a list on their homepage of which products aren't). My absolute favourite Nip + Fab product is their Glycol Scrub Fix, which i a triple action exfoliate glycol scrub. They use micro exfoliants with glycol and salicylic acids to refine, brighten and renew the skin.

I'm usually quite picky when it comes to face scrubs. I like a dense formula that can be worked into the skin thoroughly without the small exfoliating particles disappearing. Som many different scrubs have come and gone, but U think this one might be here to stay. It's a very dense scrub, and the fine particles really does a great job on removing dead skin and brightening the skin. 

Last but not least we have the Nip + Fab Glycol Fix Night Pads. I tend to use these once or twice a week, or when I feel like my skin needs a real pick-me-up. Somehow they do the job of scrubbing, without the scrub. I use these mainly around my nose and on my chin, since they're targeted to oily and congested skin. A not as messy alternative to the scrub!

Let me know if you've tried any of these products out, or if you have any recommendations on products I should try out!
