currently loving; skincare products edition

I will admit I never really looked after my skin for the longest time. It's most likely the reason I need to take special medication for a couple of years to control acne. I had to take pills and use a prescription medication cream. I've stopped with the pills, but still need the cream to this day.

But now I've taken a personal vow to myself to start to take better care of my skin. So I took a trip to Sephora a couple of months ago, and one of the lovely ladies there recommended these products to me and I'm loving them at the moment.


I try to make sure I clean my face twice a day, once in the morning and again at night. Sometimes that can be hard to do, especially if you're like me and your work mornings start at 5am. But I think if you do this at the very least once a day, then at least you're doing something good for yourself.

First I'll start with the cleanser.

This product is from Fresh. It's for all skin types. Smells of cucumbers, which is a smell that I love!!

You just wet your face, and then gently rub this all over including your eyes. It removes any dead skin, and also takes off any makeup you may have on including mascara. So it's multi-purpose. Then of course rinse off, and always make sure you have a face towel handy.


Next is another product from Fresh. This one's the Lotus Eye Gel. Also smells of cucumber!

I have tend to get dark circles under my eyes. So the saleslady suggested this product. After cleansing your face, you'll want to apply this underneath your eyes. I use a cream shadow make-up brush to apply it. 


Lastly is a ultra lightweight moisturizing oil. This product is from Josie Maran. 

I'll be honest, it took me a bit to get use to this product. I'd even skip it sometimes because I wasn't sure. I'm very particular about certain smells, and this smells horrid to me. It's old, and musty. But once you get past that, it's actually really nice. It leaves your skin feeling very soft. That is if you apply properly. You have to make sure you use a small amount. Use too much, and your skin is left feeling too oily.

And that is all I have for now. 

I'm always looking for more beauty/skincare products to try out, so let me know in the comments which skincare products you are loving.

Hope everyone is having a Happy Tuesday.
