Some people have obsessions with shoes or bags (although I do have more than enough of each, myself) my obsession is definitely with skincare & beauty.
Until about 18 months ago, I had my own skincare routine sorted. I knew what worked for my skin & what didn’t, then I turned 25 and my skin completely changed. Whether it’s to do with hormones or just my body changing as I close in on 30, I feel like I’m back to square one!
I know plenty of friends who are going through the same thing & I feel a lot better by bloggers like Zoe Sugg & Megan Ellaby, who are going through the same thing and have shared their skin issues, after turning 25, online.
So, I thought I would share my own journey too. I need to find the products that work for my ‘new’ skin. Over the next few months I hope to try products from ranges like Liz Earle, Pixi and Glossier. Eventually I hope to find products that work for me! Up first is the new(ish) L’Oréal flower skincare range. I picked up 3 of the products, around a month ago, to try together.
For the past few weeks I have been using the wipes, cleanser & face wash.
First up is the face wash. Its alcohol free & has genuinely left my skin feeling soft & moisturised. I tend to use this at night, taking off my makeup or after exfoliating. I would definitely recommend adding this into your routine, if you’re looking for a new cream wash. Its affordable & deals with waterproof eye makeup really well!
Next up is the wipes. Although I have used the same Nivea face wipes, everyday for 25474518 years, I surprisingly loved these wipes! They aren’t oily and didn’t cause any breakouts. The only con, is that they didn’t manage to get all my make up. I know wipes aren’t the greatest way to remove makeup anyway, but on lazy nights, I would often rely on upon my trusted Nivea wipes. So, I would still have to use a cotton pad with miscellar water or cleanser to make sure my skin was clear.
Last but not least is the cleansing toner. I have tried a lot of different cleansing toners over the past couple of years. Everything from Pixi to Simple. I’d say that L’Oréal’s is good, but nothing special. I found that it did lead to some breakouts.
But, for its price of £5.99 it works well as a way to freshen your skin in the morning or get rid of the last traces of makeup at night. I did find that it was a little too harsh for my skin though. I have sensitive skin and the solution was drying in some areas & left my skin oily in others.
Overall, these products look great in your bathroom & do what they say on the tin. I would definitely recommend the cream wash & wipes. They left my skin feeling moisturized but not oily & I did notice my skin seemed a little brighter. If you want to try something new and treat your skin, they are well worth the purchase!
