Skincare Saviours


Since turning 20 I feel like I’ve become a bit neurotic about skincare. At 8pm every night you’ll see me slapping on all sorts of ‘hero’ products in a bid to stop the signs of wrinkles. However, an important thing I’ve learn’t over the years is that it has to be GOOD skincare. I don’t like cutting corners when it comes to looking after my skin, and I hope to God that I’ll look back in 60 years and thank myself the excessive amount I’ve spent on this face.


This oil and water based makeup remover from Institut Estherderm takes of any and I mean ANY kind of makeup. Before I found this little gem, I had to use around 2 makeup wipes, 7 cotton pads and 3 different products just to ensure that all product was off my face. However worry to more guys and gals, this removes even the strongest of waterproof makeup.


I don’t know what I prefer with this gorgeous Rituals… body scrub, the smell or the packaging. I suffer with dry skin so a body scrub is a daily essential for me. It has a beautiful mixture of oils which help soften the skin in seconds, and it looks great on your bathroom shelf!


I love using a good face mask 1-2 times a week, there’s just something about sitting in your bath relaxing, watching Bridget Jones’ Diary (contemplating your life choices etc etc) in a face mask. This mask combines both exfoliation and mask treatment to remove dead cells and moisturise the skin. An absolute dream – get it here.


When I’m having dry spells (and by this I mean my face, thank you very much) this Hydra Milk from Institut Estherderm is a godsend. Hydrating the skin without the dreaded greasy skin backlash, it’s a beautiful and soothing  product to use after taking your makeup off.


I never used to be one for oils as I do tend to get quite a shiny face throughout the day, however this one from ‘The Hero Project’ is quite amazing. I received this in a Glossybox package a few months ago and since then I’ve re-purchased a couple of times and got my roommates onto it. If you want a good no-makeup day then this will quite literally be your ‘hero product’ from ‘The Hero Project’.

This serum is ideal for use when the seasons change, for use in 3 week periods it smooths the skin instantly whilst regenerating and strengthening the skin over time. This is the ideal product to stop wrinkles early – a BIG yes from me. Get it here.
