5 Skincare Items I Couldn’t Be Without - Rhian Westbury
As you may or may not know I am currently on holiday in Cuba! So today's post is from Rhian Westbury all about her holy grail skincare items - a lot of these are favourites of mine too! A huge thank you to Rhian for guest posting for me, be sure to check out her blog!
I am the first the admit that my skincare routine has a lot to be desired. One day I will manage the full works and my skin will look great and then a few days later I’ll get lazy and I’m lucky if I moisturise. There are a few items though that I could not be without for skin pick me ups.
Garnier Micellar Water
This is like a girls best friend and I am yet to find another micellar water which works as well as this (even the more expensive ones). Admittedly I wear quite a lot of makeup on a daily basis and this is the only thing I can find which makes me feel like my skin is clear and makeup free. When I used to use wipes or other forms of makeup remover I’d wake up in the morning with makeup under my eyes as it hadn’t come off properly. Plus it’s great value for money as a large bottle lasts quite a long time.
Pixi Glow Tonic
Exfoliation isn’t something which I remember to do on a daily basis because I’m far too lazy but when ever I used this glow tonic I find that my skin looks clearer and does actually glow. I have quite sensitive skin and this isn’t harsh and unlike some other exfoliation waters it doesn’t dry out my skin.
Lush Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub
Ever since I bought my first tub of this a year or so ago I have replaced this so many times as it does wonders for my skin. I don’t find exfoliation scrubs tend to be that great but this ocean salt version from Lush is harsh enough on my skin for it to feel like I’m getting rid of the inpurities but not so much that my skin looks red and raw afterwards. Because it is a little harsher than other products you can only use it about once a week which is great for me as I use it when I have a bit more time at the weekend.
Lush Mask of Magnaminty
I am a sucker for anything with a mint scent and this face and body mask is amazing as the scent is so strong that it makes me want to wear it without being too overpowering. I do love sheet masks and quite fixes but I always find my skin feels fresher, clearer and cleaner when I use a proper mask. This doesn’t set too hard which means it doesn’t crack too much when I try to speak or have a drink and it comes off reasonably easy so there’s no scrubbing.
Belif Aqua Bomb Moisturiser
I have reasonably dry skin so always find it hard to get a moisturiser which has quite enough moisture within it to stop the dry patches on my face. Since using this reasonably regularly the dry patches predominately around my nose have all but disappeared and my skin feels a lot smoother and less grey than it did before I started using it. I bought this from Sephora in the US so I’m hoping it isn’t too hard to get over here when it comes to replacing it.
