I'm having one of those weeks when all my favourite skin care items run out at the same time, and it's INFURIATING!
Champneys Spa Skin Super Rich Cleansing Balm:
Slightly grainy (and a little exfoliating as a result), I took this pot of balm on my honeymoon with me because I didn't want to use a chemical exfoliator, what with their sun-sensitivity issues and all, and I couldn't be bothered packing two products when only one can do all the work, and I've not looked back since. A lovely rich balm with excellent cleansing properties, this is a brilliant (cheap!) cleanser, particularly if you totally ignore the instructions on the jar, and remove it properly with warm water and a face cloth, like what you are supposed to do.
Zelens PHA Bio-Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads
God, I love these. Gentler than straight glycolic acid, but still packing a tingly punch of exfoliating goodness, I start to panic every time I get past the halfway point on a jar of these. Used after cleansing, these pads gently help your skin reset itself, and make you glow. PHA is also humectant, so it binds moisture to your skin too, as well as resurfacing. Only drawback is the price, which is £65 for 50 pads. I have been known to cut them in half to eke them out longer ...
My love for Hydraluron is fairly widely known, this is either my third or fourth tube now, and I can't imagine life without it. Which (bearing in mind that I was totally underwhelmed with it when I first started using it) is going some! This is one of those products that doesn't really appear to do much whilst you're using it, then, when you've run out, you can really tell the difference - my skin is just more dull when I don't have this in my routine. I use it to layer extra moisture into my skin, and I apply after my serum/oil, and before my moisturiser. I panicked the other day when I realised the tube was empty, I don't mind admitting. Yes, I am a big sad.
Aromatherapy Associates Soothing Cleansing Balm
For days when I don't really fancy a slightly scrubby cleanse with the Champneys Balm, this gloriously silky and gently fragranced balm cleanser does the job. It melts makeup and grime on contact, and never leaves my skin feeling dry or stripped. There are no bells or whistles to this balm, it is just a good, gentle, and even beautiful product. Oh, and it's in a tube. I fupping LOVE balms that come in a tube. Love them! MORE TUBES IN BEAUTY PACKAGING, PLEASE. Have I mentioned how much I hate sticking my fingers into a jar of runny goop? Well, I do. A lot. I actually keep a teaspoon in my bathroom to actively avoid having to dip my fingers in stuff. It's a bit weird, I know, but we have a million teaspoons for some reason.
I've had a lot of compliments on my skin recently - and I've just got through an entire winter wearing only tinted moisturiser (or the occasional CC cream -more about those soon) which is entirely unheard of! I'm normally caked in foundation from October to April, every year, so this is massive for me, and it's (almost) entirely down to the products featured here.
