January Favourites – Skincare

It is always difficult to pick the monthly favourites, but these products I have been using regularly throughout January.

CLARINS UV PLUS DAY SCREEN SPF 50

This is a product I use everyday under my makeup.  If you use any type of acid in your skincare, you should definitely be using a factor 50 sunscreen.  I do use a glycolic acid daily so wearing a sunscreen is a very important step in my skincare routine.  I particularly like this one from Clarins as it does not leave the skin looking white and although it is quite pricey, it lasts for ages.

SUNDAY RILEY LUNA

 

This is the most beautiful retinoid oil that aims to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin.  It helps to combat fine lines and wrinkles and skin renewal.  I love this oil and use it every other night.  It is also expensive, but you only need a small amount and so it lasts for ages.  I have been using mine since last May, and there is still two thirds of the bottle left. I think it is well worth it.

ELEMIS REHYDRATING GINSENG TONER

 

I got this in December and since then I have been spritzing it on my face every morning before any other skincare.  It is very refreshing and I feel like it preps the skin before adding any serum/oil or creams.

CHANTECAILLE ROSE DE MAI FACE OIL

 

OMG this is such a beautiful oil.  It just sinks into the skin, smells delicious and really helps moisturise and nourish the skin.  I have a small sample bottle of this, which has lasted for ages, but I will definitely be purchasing the full size soon.

SAND AND SKY BRILLIANT SKIN CLAY MASK

 

There has been a lot of hype surrounding this mask from Sand and Sky, and I caved in and got some to see if it is as marvellous as they claim.  I have been using it for a couple of weeks and I have to say, I think it is!  I can definitely see improvement in my skin.  I think this has to be the loveliest mask to apply.  It is very smooth and creamy and it removes so easily, with no rubbing the skin to get it all off.  I really great product, but again, very expensive for a face mask.  However, I think I will be buying more when this one is finished.

I can’t believe we are at the end of January.  One thing is good, is that the evenings are starting to get lighter here in the UK.

I hope you all have a great week.

Lots of love, Gail xxx
