Skincare Saviours

I haven't done a beauty post in what seems like forever, so what better time to do one than today? I like to switch it up here on my blog, and so that's exactly what I intend to do!
I have never been the sort of person that is majorly into skincare. Of course, I do the basics, like washing, and exfoliating, but I've never really done much else, because I didn't have the motivation, or any reason to. However, I have recently been trying to get into skincare a lot more, as I've gained an interest in trying out new products, and seeing if they improve the appearance of my skin. I don't have a lot of money to spend, as I go to school, and I don't have a job, so if I do buy new products to test out, then I usually go to the cheaper shops like Boots and Superdrug to see what I can pick up.

I'm well aware that I have spoken about this mask on my blog many times before, but obviously that proves just how fabulous it really is, as I cant get enough of it! It's everything you could possibly want in a face mask. It smells incredible, for a start. It's really minty, and fresh, and it totally wakes you up, and revitalises your skin, if you're feeling particularly groggy that day. It's technically a clay mask, so you leave it to work it's much and harden on your skin for a few minutes, and then you just wash it off, and believe me when I say it genuinely transforms your skin. It works wonders, hence why it's making an appearance in a post about skincare saviours. It literally is a saviour! I cannot recommend this product enough, so I highly suggest you go and pick it up, before you regret it.

Another lush product! How lucky are you guys? Everyone loves a bit of lush, right? I know I do anyway! Although I don't use this product all the time, I still feel it's appropriate to be classed as a skincare saviour. It comes out as a fine mist, hence why it's a toner water. It has a really light, refreshing scent, and it genuinely does what it says on the bottle. It hydrates your skin, even if it's particularly sensitive, and it helps you to feel totally revitalised, and tip-top. It's made of all natural, organic ingredients (what do you expect from Lush?), and although I don't feel the need to use it very often, it is a lovely product.

A product that I haven't yet discussed on my blog up until now is this little gem from The Body Shop. It's exactly what it says on the bottle - a tea tree, skin clearing facial wash. I haven't used this an awful lot, hence why it hasn't appeared on my blog before, but the few times that I have used it, I have been really impressed with it. I just squeeze a couple of drops into the palm of my hand, and then I rub it in circles motion into my skin. It actually lathers up incredibly well too. I then wash it off with cold water, and a wash cloth. It has a particularly strong tea tree scent (I suppose it's got that name for a reason), but I actually find that really pleasant. It made my skin feel quite tight afterwards, but I just moisturise, and then I'm absolutely fine. I'd say that's the only downfall, but I would keep using this product, just quite sparingly as I do have a normal, exfoliating facial wash that I like to use on a more regular, daily basis.
This little baby here is literally my holy grail moisturiser. I have spoken about it so many times that I'm surprised I still have things to say about it! Seriously though, it's absolutely incredible. I usually squeeze a tiny pea-sized amount onto my index finger, and I dot it on the main areas of my face (chin, cheeks, forehead, nose), then I rub it in circular motions, either with my fingertips, or with a foundation brush. The reason I sometimes use a foundation brush is because I hate the feel of all types of moisturiser on my hand, whether it be body moisturiser, facial moisturiser, or whatever else that has that sort of consistency. It just makes me feel weird, and uncomfortable! That aside, I cannot speak highly enough about this godsend. It smells wonderfully clean, and refreshing, it makes my skin super soft, and it just generally improves the appearance of my face too. And it's only a fiver! What's not to love honestly? I couldn't do a post on skincare saviours without this angel making an appearance. (Yes, I'm aware that I'm talking about a moisturiser as if it's a baby - let's not judge)
So, that's it for this post! I really enjoyed writing it actually, as I feel that it's nice to switch things up a lil bit sometimes. I'm going to try and throw in some more beauty, and fashion related posts on the odd sporadic moment, just so that we have a bit of everything here! I hope the quality of the photos is better on this post too. I've decided to start taking them in the bathroom, as there is better lighting, and a neater backdrop that looks more professional too. Do let me know what you think as always though!
Thank you so much for reading, and I really hope you enjoyed reading about my skincare saviours.
Lots of love,
