Skincare review //Summer, 2020

Happy Monday everyone!

For the past couple of months I noticed my skin was really breaking out and although I have always had a couple of spots and blemishes I thought I would start taking skin care more seriously. Over the years I’ve tried so so many skincare products and they probably would have worked a lot better if I had used them consistently and not been so lazy. However, I have been using these products for the past few months and some of them have really helped my skin and so I thought I would share them with you and give an honest review.

I have been using the Boots Vitamin C Brightening Cleanser for around 4 months now, (morning and night), and it definitely has helped me with blemishes. If you like the smell of oranges then you’ll definitely like this product! I do like how refreshing it smells and at £4 I thought it was quite a steal for clearer skin.

Until reading about skincare regimes online and watching videos I didn’t realise toner was even a thing to be honest. But I thought I would give the Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner a go as not only was it on offer for £5, but reading it removes excess oil had me sold! I have noticed a slight glowy look now to my skin which really makes me look more awake, WIN.

I love the L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Mosituriser and would definitly reccomend it if you prefer a moisturiser that isnt so thick. I think the consistency and the aloe vera is really refreshing when you put it on and I find it also helps my foundation go on smoother as well compared to other mositurisers I have used. I went with the combination skin version they do but they also offer a cream for dry skin and sensitive skin.

I really struggle with dark under- eyes and have done for quite a while now. I think its mainly hereditary but nonetheless I thought I would try the Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Creme as it had great reviews online. Unfortunately after putting the cream on twice a day for about 3 months now I can’t say I’ve noticed any difference. My bags are still going strong! As I said with it probably being hereditary I’m not sure it was going to work great miracles but at a price of £32 I was expecting a bit more from the product.

And last and definitly the least is the SENSSE deep pore suction cleanser. You know when you buy a product and you really really want it to be amazing and its the complete opposite… yep for me this was exactly that. I read online, (before buying), some very mixed reviews on these suction type of products so I was already a bit skeptical. But I’ve got quite a lot of pores on my nose and thought I’d give it a go. After student discount I managed to get it for £62, still was an ouch on the bank account though! But it hasn’t done anything for me. Pores are still very much there and it didn’t really draw many impurities from my skin, and believe me I know they’re there! I wouldn’t reccomend buying this product.

What’s your go to skincare products at the moment? Are there any you swear by?? Let me know 🙂
