skincare regimes and a giveaway – Fridays Off

skincare regimes and a giveaway

Do you ever go through great phases with your skincare regime? I'm never partial to any particular skincare line. In fact I usually have several cleansers and moisturizers on the go at any given time. Sometimes they work together and sometimes they're all wrong, but my most recent combination of products is perfect. It's like the perfect facial storm!

Here's what I'm using.

Morning: Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel followed by Avene Thermal Spring Water Soothing Serum and Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream.

I have sensitive skin that tends to be on the dry side, so the serum followed by the moisturizer really locks in moisture. The fact that all of these products are fragrance free also helps my sensitive skin.

Night: Weleda One-step Cleanser and Toner followed by Avene Ystheal + Eye Contour Cream (I should probably be using this in the morning too) and Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

The Weleda One-step cleanser is milky and smells so good, even The Hubs has started using it! I am also totally in love with the Midnight Recovery Concentrate from Kiehl's.  Both of these products are fairly oily, but if you need the moisture you'll love them too. I wake up in the morning feeling like I had a facial overnight!

What's your skincare regime? Any favourite products you recommend? Leave your reccos and one lucky reader will win a bottle of Weleda One-step Cleanser and Toner!

Good luck and happy face-washing!

I am still attached to my Clinique bar soap, but I also LOVE all of the ginger products from Origins, especially the body scrub. I also love their house brand moisturizer.

Luxe Face exfoliant and Dermalogica Clean Start Mask are my 2 most fave, fave, FAVES right now. Both smell great (necessary to me) and do exactly what I want, scrub and smooth.

Absolutely anything Soap & Glory, particularly The Greatest Scrub of All; it’s refreshing & almost instantly makes you look brighter. And Bioderma’s Sensibio Light Cream; its goes on super light, has no fragrance or preservatives (downside: it’s rarely on sale…but worth the price).

Morning and night I use Ole Henriksen’s African Red Tea foaming cleanser. In the morning I use Korres Yogurt moisturizer and Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Antiwrinkle Eye . At night I use Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum and Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Antiwrinkle Eye. Once a week use Korres Pomegranate Clay Mask.

Love the burt’s bees products (because of this lovely blog!) and also clinique moisturizer. But lately I’ve used a lot of Nivea cleansers and moisturizers……because it was on sale at shoppers :)!
