Daily Skincare Essentials


Hey guys,

My skin has recently been breaking out so I decided to revise my skincare routine from just face wash. Younger skin doesn't need as much attention, in fact you could just simply rinse your face with water twice a day if you wanted, however I used a face wash, Cetaphil. I have always had sensitive skin so I have learnt how to look after it. 

Everyone has different skin so this routine or these products might not work for everyone, I am just writing from my personal experience. 

Below I have listed 4 facial skincare products and 1 hand cream that is just too good to leave out. 

1. Arbonne Clear Future Intensive Acne Spot Treatment

What Arbonne says: “Target blemishes with a fast-acting formula that penetrates pores to dry up acne blemishes, resulting in improved appearance of skin tone. Salicylic acid exfoliates and reveals new layers of skin without over-drying, while helping keep skin clear of new blemishes.”

My Thoughts: This is absolute magic. It tends to work better for individual spots rather than large areas of redness. It's fast-acting formula dries up acne blemishes without dehydration your skin. I use it every night on affected areas and I have definitely seen a vast improvement. 

2. Arbonne FC5 Mattifying Powder

What Arbonne says: "Going to the matte for you. This oil-absorbing powder helps minimize shine while concealing skin redness for a perfect matte finish."

My thought: As someone who has oily skin, shine is a big issue for me. That's why this anti-shine powder is absolutely essential. The applicator makes it easy to apply on my forehead, under eyes, nose and chin, however I use my finger to get into the small spaces such as the inner corners of my eyes and around my nose. 

3. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

What Cetaphil says: "Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is a soap substitute that preserves your skin’s natural protective oils. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser softens your skin as it gently cleanses. Independent clinical tests using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser undiluted has shown it to be one of the gentlest non-soap cleansers. Its special formulation won’t sting your eyes and can remove light makeup without clogging pores. Developed to be used with or without water, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is pH balanced and lanolin and fragrance free."

My thoughts: If I could only ever use one beauty product again this would be it by far. It has improved my skin so much since I started using it back in 2013. It cleanses my skin so nicely and really wakes me up. I use it every morning and night and just distribute it evenly around my face then wash it off with cold water. 

4. The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream

What The Body Shop says: "This sweet Strawberry daily hand cream helps soften and protect hands with light, juicy moisture. The instantly absorbing formula is ideal for on-the-go hydration."

My thoughts: I just had to add this hand cream in, it is so hydrating and smells amazing. Its small package makes it easy to store and carry with you on the go, it is the perfect edition to any handbag. I don't tend to get very dry hands but it's always better to be safe than sorry, especially in winter.  

5. Invisible Zinc Tinted Daywear Medium SPF30+

What Adore Beauty says: "Invisible Zinc Tinted Daywear SPF30+ is a natural, physical, mineral tinted sunscreen that contains a micronised, patented form of Zinc Oxide as its only active ingredient. Use every day to nourish, protect, and help reduce the appearance of premature ageing of the skin caused by UV exposure."

My thoughts: Sun protection is vital but it can be hard to find the right sunscreen. The best part about this zinc is that it is tinted, which means it is a great substitute for foundation. However, on the down side it is very oily so I suggest putting pressed/mattifying powder over the top to combat the oiliness. 

These are my skincare essentials that I use daily and I would love to hear all about yours in the comments. 

Lots of love,
