My Skincare Collection - Part 1

Hey Everyone,
Hope you're all well! Today's post is going to be the first part of my Skincare collection posts. I was going to put my entire skincare collection in one post, but I realised it would be too many products, so I decided to split it into 2 posts, and here is the first part of my Skincare Collection. These are the products I use on a daily basis, whereas part 2 will be my non-essential skincare products.Enjoy!
First up, let's start with my make up removers. I've only got 3 in my collection which is a pretty reasonable amount I think. 2 of these products are great, but one of them has disappointed me, so read on to find out more.
It's probably no surprise that I've got a bottle of Bioderma in my skincare collection. Bioderma is my everyday cleanser and make up remover. This is the second bottle of Bioderma I'm going through this year so you can tell how much I love it! I use a small amount of this on an oval cotton pad to cleanse my face every morning and evening. I've done am entire review on Bioderma which you can read by clicking here.
Another product in my collection which I'm loving is the Bourjois Express Eye Make Up Remover which I recently bought. This product is fantastic and even better than my Bioderma at removing eye make up. It's one of those products you need to shake up before using and it removes gel liner and mascara which can be a nightmare to get off with such ease!
I bought the Superdrug Vitamin E Gentle Eye Make Up Remover because I love the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser from the same range, but this product has unfortunately disappointed me a little. This product is a cream eye make up remover. It works fine at removing eyeshadow, but it's not great for removing gel eyeliner or mascara. I also accidentally got a tiny bit of this in my eyes once and it clouded my vision for a few minutes and was very uncomfortable. I will try to use this up, and it was only a couple of quid, so it's not the end of the world, but sadly this product did not work for me. I do however still absolutely love the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser which I will be repurchasing forever more.
I only have one face wash in my skincare collection, and it's the Origins Cheeks and Balances Frothy Face Wash.
Face wash is one of those products I only repurchase when I'm starting to run out. Usually I use drugstore face wash, but this month I decided to treat myself to some Origins products and this is one of the things I picked up. The Origins Cheeks and Balances Frothy Face Wash is very creamy. You only need a tiny amount of this product to wash your face. Once you add water, the Origins Cheeks and Balances Frothy Face Wash works up into a very rich and frothy lather. This product literally leaves my face feeling squeaky clean and does not dry my skin out at all. Origins advise to keep this product away from your eyes. which is the one negative thing I have to say about it because usually when I wash my face I like using the product over my eyes as well. The Origins Cheeks and Balances Frothy Face Wash is a high end product, but you only need the tiniest amount of it and this bottle will last me a lot longer than my usual drugstore face wash. So even though it's slightly more expensive than your average drugstore face wash, this product is still great value for money.
At the moment I'm using the MAC Studio Moisture Fix lotion as my everyday moisturiser, but I won't be repurchasing this product. I'm in my early 30s, so I prefer moisturisers which have anti ageing properties in them. MAC Studio Moisture Fix lotion isn't as hydrating as I'd like it to be and doesn't claim to be anti ageing. Even though this product hasn't really worked for me, I do think it would be more for someone younger with oily skin. This product is very lightweight and provides a great base for make up. It also contains SPF which is really important for a day cream or lotion and something I always look out for.
At the moment I'm using the Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturiser as my night cream. I'm one of those people that always have to have a separate night cream and day cream, and I'm really funny about using a day cream in the evenings. The Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturiser contains 8 different anti oxidants which keep your skin looking healthy and protect it against signs of environmental damage. This product is recommended for dry combination skin, but it is also available for people with oily skin. I am enjoying using this night moisuriser, but it is more like a lotion rather than a cream, so if you suffer from really dry skin you perhaps will need a product that's slightly more hydrating than the Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturiser.
I've been using serums before I apply my night time moisturiser for years and I can't recommend it enough. When I was younger, I did a lot of things that are very bad for your skin. This included battering the sunbeds. My skin however is still in pretty good nick, and other than good genes (cheers mum), I also think I have my skincare routine to thank for that. You're never too young to start using a serum. The serum I'm using at the moment is the Origins A Perfect World Age Defense Skin Guardian with White Tea. I apply one pump of this every evening to my clean face. This product leaves my skin feeling silky and smooth, almost like I've applied a primer. It contains active ingredients including Silver Tip White Tea, which helps slow down the ageing process and will keep your skin looking younger for longer.
I cannot recommend the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream enough to you! This is the second one I've bought, which shows how much I love it. I use this every morning and evening around my eye area. This cream absorbs beautifully into the skin, leaving the delicate eye area moisturised. This product has also reduced the appearance of dark circles under my eyes. I've done a full review on the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream which you can read by clicking here.
If you read my blog you will know how much I have been raving about the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleansers. I love both the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser (Review) and the Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser (Review) equally. These 2 products are fantastic value for money and I use one of these (depending what mood I'm in) every evening after my Bioderma but before I wash my face. These 2 products smell amazing and do a great job at cleansing and exfoliating your skin, and I honestly cannot recommend them enough.
Well, that's it for Part 1 of my Skincare Collection. Keep a lookout for Part 2 (yes, there is more) which will be up later this week.
I hope you've enjoyed this post and let me know what you think in the comments below.
