Recently I bought a cleanser from a very well known high end brand that completely broke my skin out. And let me tell you I wasn’t happy. Sure it’s great to experiment with new products but sometimes it’s best to stick with the classics.

Today I wanted to share with you my skincare holy grails that I have been using consistently the past few months.

Bioderma Sensibo Miceller Water

The first product I always use to remove my makeup is the Bioderma Sensibio Miceller Water. It’s one of those products that I just cannot live without. I’ve used the cleanser for just over two years and since then it has became an absolute staple in my skincare routine. The cleanser removes makeup extremely quickly yet very gently. It leaves the skin feeling incredibly soothed and in no way greasy.

Botanics All Bright Purifying Face Scrub

I exfoliate my face usually about twice a week to get rid of any dead/dry skin cells. I have extremely sensitive and dry skin and this face scrub by Botanics is a lifesaver for keeping my skin healthy and glowy. The product is super gentle and and leaves pores looking visabily reduced.  Although it is important to exfoliate your face, I make sure I do not exfoliate more than twice a week to ensure I do not strip away any of the skins natural oils.

Avene Gentle Toner

I recently ran out of this product and couldn’t get my hands on it for just over a week and it’s fair to say my skin suffered the consequences. The toner is amazing for removing any left over makeup that the miceller cleanser may have missed. As it is completely free from parabens it means it is extremely delicate on the skin. The toner helps calm and soothe the skin while at the same time removing any excess oils.

Avene Moisturiser 

This is one of my go to moisturisers for winter. It’s extremely hydrating and leaves the skin feeling soft and ready for makeup application.

Botanics Day Cream SPF15 50ml

Another cream I love is the ‘All Bright Hydrating Day Cream’ by Botanics. It is infused with a natural hibiscus extract which has skin brightening properties and helps to improve the skins texture. It’s very lightweight on the skin meaning its perfect for everyday use.

Bio Oil

I only started using this product in the summer and have already noticed a huge difference to my skin.  I have a lot of tissue marks and excema scars on my face and this product has drastically reduced their visability. Although the oil adds a lovely glow to the face when you wake up in the morning, it can feel greasy upon application. If you have oily skin I would highly recommend only using a few drops.

Let me know in the comments below if you’ve tried any of the above products and what your skincare staples are. I’d love to give them a try!
