Skincare of the Week 8th November 2015
A bit of a mixed bag this week, skincare wise. Looking at the pictures all in one place kind of makes it clear that I have certain patterns in product usage – Pixi Glow Tonic, for example, I tend to use for two days then swap to Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Toner. The one product I’ve used consistently this week has been Medik8 Red Alert Serum, which I’m liking more and more the more often I use it. I find it gentle and soothing, and my redness, particularly in the mornings is much reduced. Doesn’t make any difference to my redness when I drink booze though … oops. I really like the Skinceuticals moisturiser too. It’s quite a lightweight texture, but it is still plenty hydrating on my combination-oily skin, without leaving a greasy residue. I’ll write more in detail about both these products soon, and there’s a full review of the gorgeous Votary Cleansing Oil upcoming too.
I’ve picked up some more of the Pixi Skintreats range this week, as I’ve been incredibly impressed with what I’ve tried from the range so far and I was intrigued to try more – you can see the Milky Hydrating Mist and Glowtion Day Dew in Thursday’s picture, but I also have the Glow Pads and a couple of other bits as well. And I’m trialling some new things from Dermalogica and Murad over the next two weeks, it’s all go on the skincare front, but I’m looking forward to trying them out! Have a few more Christmas-themed posts coming up this week first though …
