The Skincare Diaries - February Favourites

Hi girls! As a skincare consultant I love my skincare posts and I couldn't wait to do this one for you! I've been trying so much skinare over the past few weeks and I've discovered some real gems, here is the cream of the crop!

As you may know Superfacialist by Una Brennan is rocking my world right now and at the moment I'm loving her Rose Hydrate pre-cleanse oil, £14.99 and Calming Creamy Cleanser £7.99 from Boots

I use a few drops of heavenly scented pre-cleanse oil to loosen makeup before cleansing with the creamy cleanser which, when used with a face cloth is a very similar style cleanser to Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish which is a firm favourite of mine.

Insititut Time Cream comes with a price tag of around £60 but it wouldn't be on this page if I didn't think it was worth every penny. The first time I used this cream I announced I felt like my skin had been kissed by an angel (isn't that what everyone wants from a day cream?)

I've only been using this for a couple of weeks now but I couldn't wait to tell you about it, my skin is already brighter, softer, and has a hard to explain healthy glow which I haven't really ever had. I've had lots of compliments on my skin and have been wearing less and less foundation which is unheard of for me! On offer at £55.35 from BeautyBay.

I'm wearing Espa Essential Cleansing Mask, £27.50 House of Fraser, right now! This is a luxury clay mask which works. I get rather oily at certain times of the month and I apply this to the areas where I suffer from shine and this helps to balance the skin out again.

I've only just started using Stri-Vectin products, this Retexturising Scrub, £25 Selfrdiges, is one of the best scrubs I have ever used! It's fine exfoliating particles buff and polish away dry skin and leave my skin looking ridiculously bright and even-toned. I was amazed to see results after only a few uses. Fantastic product!

That concludes my skincare loves for this month and I'm already testing products for next month's post! Hope you enjoyed!

  1. I love the Str1-Vectin scrub as well If someone cannot afford the £25 or simply doesn't want to spend that much on a scrub BOOTS BOTANCIS MICRODERMABRASION POLISH -RADIANT YOUTH is very similiar in texture to the Sti but is less than half price. x

  2. Oh they all sound fantastic especially the ESPA mask xx
