When I planned this post, the weather had bucked its ideas up and the sun decided to grace us with its presence. As I am writing this post, it’s peeing it down but hey ho, I have my bright lipstick and nail varnish on, ready and raring.
In Summer I like to change a few things round in my skincare, opting for lighter products. In Autumn/Winter I like to use thicker, creamier products, e.g. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and hydrating serums. Which my skin definitely needs in the colder months.
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil*//£4.50 (mini version) Link.
I raved about this in yesterdays May Favourites post (here) so I won’t go on about it too much. I use this in an evening to remove my makeup, it leaves my skin really soft and with a lovely glow. It literally melts my makeup off, even the toughest of mascaras!
Soap & Glory Peaches & Clean 4-in-1 Wash-Off Deep Cleaning Milk//Old Edition Link.
In the warmer months I like to opt for lighter cleansers, no idea why..and this milk cleanser from Soap & Glory fits the bill perfectly. It does claim to melt away makeup, which I haven’t noticed but I use this in my morning routine so I don’t really need it too, but i’d bare that in mind if you were going to purchase it. It smells AMAZING, so peachy (with a hint of mint) and fresh. My skin feels so soft after using this and it’s really refreshing on my skin.
Burt’s Bees Radiance Eye Cream*//£19.99 Link.
To be honest, this product hasn’t changed in a good while. I use it all year, no matter what the weather. I absolutely love it, it leaves my eye area feeling so soft and looking really hydrated. I don’t really have dark circles so i’m not sure what it would be like getting rid of those, but it definitely helps to de-puff my eyes.
Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer//£23.00 Link.
I picked this up a couple of months ago after hearing so many people raving about it, and I can understand the hype! It has a gel formula, which is great for Summer. It’s really light and refreshing on the skin. It also helps that it smells incredible, really citrusy. Once i’ve applied it to my skin it leaves a semi-matte, glowing look to my skin. This is my morning staple and my skin loves me for it!
Burt’s Bees Radiance Serum*//£19.99 Link.
When the lovely people at Burt’s Bees very kindly sent me this, I couldn’t wait to try it! As I said before, in Autumn/Winter I am all for hydrating serums, but in the warmer months you can’t beat a bit of radiance. I love using this product, my skin feels instantly perked up and radiant. I apply this in the morning and my skin is glowing all day! I only need about 2-3 drops for my whole face which is plenty. It doesn’t leave my skin looking oily or with a film, it sinks into the skin really well.
