If you are anything like me you love a good nosy around other peoples make-up bags and skincare shelf. I love seeing what products others love or loathe and ultimately trying the products they rave about!
Since having my Plasma Lift with Skin Medi Spa (you can read about it here) I have been much more strict with my skincare. Pre-January 2018 I was very laxidazy about cleansing before bed or applying my moisturiser daily but now I am religious about it and I can really see a difference.
With that being said, here are my favourite skincare products sitting on my bathroom self at this moment in time…
1. Image Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser
The Ormedic Cleanser from Image is definitely my favourite cleanser at the moment. It is a mild cleanser which aims to restore the skins balance. I find it very soothing on my skin, reducing redness and leaving it feeling lovely and soft.
Currently I use this as my night time cleanser.
2. Image Clear Cell Salicyclic Gel Cleanser
I use the Image Clear Cell cleanser every evening. It is a refreshing cleanser which foams upon meeting water to create a lather. It is this lather that is meant to “remove excess oil and sebum without stripping moisture from the kin.” The Clear Cell Cleanser exfoliates the skin using salicylic acid – salicylic acid has become well known in the past year through skincare specialists such as The Skin Nerd for being an acne fighting agent. This cleanser is one of my favourites as it helps to reduce block pores which I would suffer from around my T zone but also leaves my skin feeling soft rather than tight or dry as some cleaners with salicylic acid do.
3. Image Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque
This masque exfoliates the build up of dead skin cells but it is mild enough to use everyday. I use it once or twice per week (depending on my time) and remove it after around 30 minutes. It is nourishing to the skin in providing it with antioxidants and vitamins.
4. Image Prevention+ Daily Hydrating Moisturizer SPF 30+
I have never been a moisturizer lover as I find them very greasy on my skin but I don’t find this with the Image Prevention+ Moisturizer. It is light weight, easily absorbed by my skin and hydrating. I apply this in the morning after cleansing and applying my serum.
5. BIOEFFECT EGF Serum
I use the BIOEFFECT EGF Serum night and day after cleansing. It is on the pricier side compared to the other products but I definitely think it is worth it as my skin appears hydrated and healthy after application.
6. Image Vital C Hydrating Repair Cream
I use this as my night cream i.e. after using my Clear Cell cleanser and BIOEFFECT serum before bed. “This rich, reparative crème quenches dryness, soothes redness and comforts irritated skin.” My skin feels nourished and protected when I apply this to my skin and it is the perfect night cream to apply before jumping into bed.
