today I have for you a skincare post, which has been quite highly requested. Being a beautician I always get lots of questions about skincare and a lot of my clients want to know what I would recommend for the different skin types. I have combination to oily skin but occasionally I do suffer with dry patches and sensitivity, so in todays post I will be sharing some products that have been working really well for me helping me combat these problems.
I find once the summer is over and the weather changes my skin really craves moisture. As the days grow shorter, the temperatures drop, and the air becomes drier. Autumn is a time of transition, and the best autumn skin care routines will correct any summer damage that has occurred and prepare your skin for winter.
I’m sure you all know how much I love Clinique, they have some pretty amazing makeup but also skincare products and today I want to share with you some of my current favourites.
Starting with one of their recent launches – Clinique 2-in-1 Cleansing Micellar Gel + Makeup Remover* such a lovely gentle facial cleanser that removers makeup and dirt without leaving your skin feeling tight. My face is left looking fresh and smooth I just love it!
I like to do a double cleanse on days when I’m wearing slightly heavier makeup so the product that I’ve been loving for that is Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm* that I’ve spoke about many times on my instagram and a product I absolutely swear by!
It’s a lovely lightweight balm perfect for removing makeup, including waterproof mascara. What I like about it is that it’s unscented, which makes it perfect for sensitive skin. It transforms from a solid balm to a silky oil as you apply it onto the skin, it cleans my face so well without being greasy or drying.
It doesn’t irritate my skin and leaves it very soft and smooth. I love a good balm cleanser and this one is definitely one of my favourites, it’s so pampering and also really good if you suffer with any dry patches as it seems to really hydrate and balance out my skin.
I like using the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush* with both of those cleansers which works really well, I’m so obsessed with this brush, it has replaced my Clarisonic! It’s gentle but very effective.
The next step to achieve beautiful bare skin is to seal it with a moisturizer. Pick a cream with the hydration level your skin needs daily, I’ve been using Clinique Smart SPF 15 Custom Repair Moisturiser* The one I have (there are 3 types available) is designed for Combination to Oily skin, it’s very hydrating and helps the skin retain moisture where it’s needed most, without being heavy or greasy. It also helps smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and contains UVA/UVB which is very important to use every day.
The eye cream I’m currently loving is Clinique Smart Custom Repair Eye Treatment* I’ve tried so many different eye creams but I have really noticed results with this one, it has improved the appearance of the little fine lines and creases under my eyes, it also helps with brightening those dark circles 🙂 I highly recommend!
I love using Clinique Total Moisture Extended Thirst Relief* as my night cream, it has a lovely light, comfortable cream/gel consistency that plumps the skin and gives hydration for a full 24 hours. It really helps to keep my skin supple, firm and plump, absolutely beautiful product!
So these are all the products I wanted to share with you today, have you tried any of them?
I hope you’re all having a fab weekend, Happy Sunday!
