I’m trying my hardest right now to really take care of my skin. I’m trying to use more gentle products and trying to protect my skin as much as I can. I turn 25 next months so I’m really trying to look after my skin and its not been in the best shape this past year so I’m trying to fix that.
Boots currently has a 3-for-2 offer on selected skincare so I took advantage of that and ordered some products that have been on my wishlist for a while.
Eucerin AtoControl Face Care Cream
For the last few weeks, I’ve been having issues with my eyelids. I first thought it was eczema but after speaking to my doctor we’ve worked out that it might actually be an allergic reaction. Really we don’t know what it is but my eyelids have been really dry and one morning I woke up and my eyes were swollen and red raw! I looked like I was wearing clown makeup! I’ve been applying vaseline to my lids a few times a day and that’s helped a lot but I want to try a moisturiser that I can use every day without having shiny and greasy eyelids. I saw this Eucerin cream on Boots and decided to try it out and see if it will help with whatever is going on with my skin. I’ve never tried Eucerin products before so I’m excited to try this one.
CeraVe Foaming Cleanser
Last summer I bought the CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser in the hopes that it would clear my skin up. It’s a great cleanser but I find it too stripping on my skin and it hasn’t completely cleared up my skin so I decided to try the new Foaming Cleanser. CeraVe is a well loved skincare brand right now and for great reasons. It’s a brand developed by dermatologists so it’s a brand you can trust. The foaming cleanser is suitable for normal to oily skin types to remove makeup, dirt and excess oils. It contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate, 3 ceramides to protect the skins barrier and its fragrance-free and non-comedogenic.
CeraVe AM Facial Moisturising Lotion
I don’t really need a new face moisturiser but I want one that has a built in spf so I don’t have to worry about using suncream everyday. This AM moisturiser contains spf 25 that protects your skin against UVA and UVB rays.
Glossier Balm Dotcom in ‘Mango’
I adore Glossiers Balm Dotcom. It’s the best thing I’ve used for my lips and a tube lasts forever. I recently bought a new one in the Mango scent and it smells delicious. It has a soft peachy rose tint to it which is a great way to add some colour to your lips on an everyday basis instead of using lipstick. Lately, I’ve been picking lip balms over lipsticks because my lips get so dry and the lipstick ends up cracking and building up on my lips. Ew! So I prefer to wear a tinted lip balm and it’s really nice for no makeup days which is everyday for me right now because it brings a bit of life back to your face.
