Skincare of the Week 30 August 2015


You'll notice a certain "samieness" about my skincare routines this week, mainly because I am trying the new Zelens serums, and that means sticking to things I know.  But a couple of exciting new things have popped up too, so I'll show you those as well.

The Oskia Perfect Cleanser is one of my favourites (and was another cleanser that I was hoarding the very last bits of, but I thought it was time to dig it back out and enjoy it.  Used alongside the Clarins Gentle Exfoliant and Bioderma Crealine spray it's a lovely rich balm that left my skin nice and soft and ready for the Intense Defence Serum from Zelens.

Shopping my stash again meant my Oskia (now nearly empty!) Renaissance Gel made another re-appearance this week.  I'm going to need to replace this, it's really lovely.

This was my routine on a day when I needed some brightness - I was tired and feeling like crap as a result - so I swapped out the Zelens Intense Defence for Zelens Z Luminous and added in the Vichy Idealia Life Serum (which has wonderful pigments for a real glow - but sadly also contains a lot of fragrance, stupid in a range for sensitive skin) and some Suti Coconut and Rose moisturiser to give a real nourishing boost.

Two new products arrived too this week, the Omorvicza Blue Diamond Eye Cream (the beauty of the bottle made me squee a little bit, I'm very sad like that), and the Josie Maran Argan Milk, which I bought after being impressed with the Bright and Beautiful TSV from QVC recently.  It comes highly praised all over as a hydrating treatment but I'm reserving judgement for a while as I've only used it once.

A (rare) night out on Saturday meant a trip back to brightening and softening, so I began my routine with Sunday Riley Charisma Creme, and tried out the Josie Maran Milk.  

I think this was my favourite routine of the week though, beautiful-scented cleanse with the Omorovicza, Clarins Gentle Exfoliation, Zelens Intense Defence, the Bioderma Crealine, the Omorovicza Blue Diamond cream - which I can't deny I'm bitterly disappointed that it's a white cream, and not blue like the bottle suggests, dammit - and the Suti Coconut and Rose face cream.

I'll have more in-depth analysis of a few of these products soon, but in the meantime, what's been on your face this week?

Josie Maran Bright and Beautiful Collection

You know those nights when you're accidentally awake at 4am and find yourself mindlessly perusing QVC?  Well that happened last week, and two days later, I found the Josie Maran Bright and Beautiful TSV (today's special value) on my doorstep.  I've been pretty impressed actually, and thought you might like to see it too.  Click to read more:

Nailbrushes.  They're not really the sexiest of products on the planet, are they? I think every household has one gently mouldering on the side of the kitchen sink, very rarely used, and unloved.  Bruzz aims to change all that.

The Library of Fragrance: Gin and Tonic and Fresh Laundry

Having parosmia makes you paranoid about being smelly.   I'm clean, don't get me wrong, but having a nose that interprets smells incorrectly (and sometimes not at all) can make you worry about the oddest things.  I was a huge fan of Demeter Laundromat back in the day, and the first thing I did when I heard they were being re-released as the Library of Fragrance in the UK was check that Laundromat was in the line up.  It was, but is now called Fresh Laundry, and no one is happier about that than I am...

Dr Perricone No Makeup Skincare

The last time I published a review of Dr Perricone products ... well, let's just say it did not go down too well, so it is with some trepidation that I come to write about them again! I have found myself intrigued by the No Makeup Skincare range for a while now, so, rather in spite of myself, I found myself forking over a bunch of cash in John Lewis recently for the core products, and wondering how I'd get along ...
