2013 Favourites: The Skincare

I think I saved the best for last, skincare is my absolute favourite. I've got quite the collection and although I do love trying out new products, these are the ones I always go back to and my skin just loves them. I have normal to dry skin for reference. 

To remove my makeup, I used to always use the dreaded face wipes as honestly I didn't know any better. My eye's are super sensitive and can't deal with much on them and as I'm a lover of eye makeup, I need something to take it off easily before cleansing but then I found this, the L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution, it takes my makeup off easily and my eye's can deal with it! For cleansing the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish is beautiful. Super gentle and really creamy, it cleanses my skin while keeping it hydrated. I then always go for the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic along with the Liz Earle Eyebright, I love using this when my eyes are feeling sensitive or a bit sore, along with when I feel as though I'm having a slight allergic reaction. It is super soothing and one of my all time favourite products. I will always repurchase this. On to the moisturisers, my two favourites are the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief and the Origins High Potency Night-a-mins, they are really moisturising and work great with my skin. My favourite moisture mask is the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, super moisturising and smells amazing. I also love the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque, really great clay mask! 

That's the end of my 2013 favourites series, better late than never right? I hope you liked the series. Let me know what your 2013 favourites were in the comments below!

  3. Every time I go into Boots I eye up that 3 in 1 Micellar Solution, I think I might have to give it a go now though and step away from the make up wipes too! :)

  5. I hope I can get my hands on the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish some day. It sounds so good! Shipping to Canada from their website is ridiculously expensive though. :(

  6. All of these products look and sound great! I tried the micellar from L'Oreal and unfortunately it broke me out massively and has put me off the idea of micellar's entirely. Clinique is a brand I am forever eyeing up in terms of their skincare and foundation, I just don't think I can justify the price tag!

    Lovely post :) I recently posted about my skincare holy grail brand! Would love for you to check it out.
