My Skincare Staples

I absolutely love skincare, I invest a lot of time and money into skincare products and I have definitely found my favourites along the way. I have combination skin that is spot prone at that time of the month. In the winter months I struggle with dry patches on my face as I have eczema and it comes into full force in the winter.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
This is my all time favourite skincare product and I absolutely swear by this gem. I use this every single night without fail before I apply my evening moisturiser. This serum is good skin in a bottle in my opinion, it just makes everything very 'nice'. For me, this brings some luminosity to my skin whilst also keeping spots and pimples at bay. When I don't use this, boy do I notice! My skin turns into a complete mess and everything starts to look the way it did when I was 13! As you can tell, I love this product and I would not be without it. 

La Roche Posay Serozinc
This product is a newer product for me, I have probably been using it for the best part of 8 months however. It is a strange product as it seems to just been that of a hydration mist but it does so much more than that for my skin. This product is full of such goodness and is predominately made from zinc sulphate. I find that this product helps to keep blemishes and spots away from my skin, it is a preventive agent so that not only does it manage spots when they arise, it also prevents them from even happening. I definitely notice when I don't use this product and my skin absolutely loves it! 

Origins Super Spot Remover
This is my little saviour when those pesky spots do arise. It comes in a tiny pot and I just pop some of this onto any spots on my skin and this helps to get rid of them in the click of my fingers. This is by far the best spot remover I've ever used however I would love to try out the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion and see how they compare. 

Hylamide Multi Depth Hydration Booster
I brought this on a complete whim in boots one day, I normally use Indeed Labs Hydraluron and I decided to give this a go instead and I am glad I did. The two compare quite well and I don't believe that there is too much difference between them but I do love the Hylamide product (mostly because it has a pipet). I love these kind of products because they hydrate the skin from the inside which always seems to work for me. Hylamide says that this is a 'Hyper-strength rehydration serum with 5 forms of hyaluronic compounds' and this works fantastically for me. Since using this, my skin hasn't become overly dry in any place on my face and it looks healthy and youthful. 

La Roche Posay Effacer Duo +
This is an oldy but a goody for me. There is nothing else quite like this on the market in my opinion and it does wonders for keeping the spots away from my skin. This product will always be a staple in my skincare routine because every time I run out of this, every spot on the face of the earth decides to pop onto my skin! I even have a back-up of one of these in my draws, that's how much I don't want to be without this. It is applied all over your face as a serum and I use this every single morning after the Serozinc. If you have sensitive skin, I would say to be wary of this as it can be quite harsh and can sting my skin if I have any dry/sensitive parts on my skin. 

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my favourite skincare products and the ones that I would not be without! I still haven't found my holy grail morning and evening moisturiser though so if you know of any great ones then let me know in the comments!
