My current favourite skincare products

My skin has been baaaaaadddd lately - red and full of breakouts, caused by late nights and stress and drinking too much. So I've kicked my skincare regime up a gear, and it's finally on the mend. Here's the products I've been loving!

Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser*

I'm not a massive rose lover, but this cleanser is amazing. It's not gritty or anything but it's not particularly smooth either, and I love the way it feels - it leaves my face feeling so clean and nourished and just lovely. A little goes a really long way, and I can see myself using this for a long time. more info here

The Body Shop Mineral & Ginger Warming Clay Mask

I absolutely love this mask, especially when I can feel that my skin is getting a bit oily. It smells nice and really cleanses your skin, dragging all the crap out of your pores. I've had this particular tube since Christmas and I use it quite often - there's still loads left so it's definitely food value for money. Absolutely love it. more info here

Tropic Pure Lagoon Blemish Prevention Serum*

I've had quite a few breakouts over the past month, and this serum is just so good. It genuinely reduces redness and dries out your spots without irritating the surrounding skin, and it feels so luxurious. Definitely one of my top products! more info here

Freederm Gel

When I get a particularly nasty spot, I use the Freederm 4% treatment gel - it's £10 ish from Superdrug which seems pricey for a little tube from a drugstore brand *but* it works so well. It is quite drying, so make sure you apply it directly to the spot, but it reduces spots overnight. more info here

Pixi Vitamin C Lotion*

I got a bunch of products from the Pixi Vitamin C range recently, and I've been slowly testing them out. I absolutely love this moisturiser. It's thick but soaks in quickly, and it smells citrus-y and delicious. It also leaves my skin GLOWING. Would absolutely recommend!! more info here

So there you have it - my current favourite skincare products. My skin has settled down again and looks fairly decent at the minute, and I've got these products to thank for that. Have you tried any of these? Let me know...
