Looking after my skin is fast becoming a priority, I admit I used to be not fully into it, or lazy for that matter. However, since the colder weather has bombarded us I’ve been more into skincare than ever before. My favourite part of my beauty routine is exfoliating my skin; both body and face, so here are my favourites.
More often than not I opt for a lighter scrub, one with a fruity scent and light exfoliation beads. My absolute favourite for this is the Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser, which is a super lightweight scrub that smells like citrusy heaven. For a more intense exfoliation, one for a pamper session or a long week is the Clinique Pep Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser. This has slightly larger beads that also work to break down makeup. Although the beads are larger, both are as kind to the skin.
For a soft cleanser and one to cleanse as well as take off your makeup is the Eve Lom Cleanser. Its formulation is super light and contains Clove Oil and Egyptian Chamomile Oil that work to encourage clear skin and soften and soothe. You can remove this with a warm damp muslin cloth or flannel. Takes seconds to break down your makeup. If you love an intense scrub then I love the Magnitone Full Monty Brush. This 3-in-1 skincare brush deep-cleanses, tones and buffs the skin (both face and body). This is fab for in and out of the shower, and leaves buy cheap accutane usa your skin super soft and clear. For my face I use this 2-3 times a week, and tend to use harder vibrations for those days my skin just isn’t doing its thing. This particular brush was part of their Limited Edition Summer Collection, but there are so many other beautiful designs and colours. The Full Monty comes with 3 brush heads and 5 modes, so you can have anything from a light to intense scrub.
Speaking of multi-taskers, I love the Lush Let The Good Times Roll Exfoliating Scrub. This is much more of an intense scrub with bigger beads, and you can use this anywhere on your face and body. If you love gorgeous smells, this is your winner. It smells like sweet popcorn and it leaves your skin smelling amazing as well as feeling refreshed. I love to use this and remove with a warm flannel when I’m giving myself a ‘Lush pamper night’. My favourite lip scrub of the moment is also by Lush, it’s their Sugar Plum Fairy scrub, part of the Holiday Collection. It’s a purple scrub enriched with Caster Sugar, Organic Jojoba Oil and Sweet Wild Orange Oil, which gives off the most amazing sweet scent. I use this daily as I’m an avid liquid lipstick wearer, and it makes your lips as good as new. It smells so good you could eat it.
