My Current Skincare Routine | Moisturisers
Now on to Moisturisers (Clinque Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel, La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo & Hydraluron)
I'm really difficult when it comes to moisturisers, I've never found one that I liked enough to repurchase...until now!! I have two because I reach for a certain one in a certain situation, for example when I have active breakouts or my skin is just going through a hormonal mess (Ladies you know what I'm talking about) I grab this magical item, This is the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo, this moisturiser is aimed at clogged pores and active breakouts and after using this, it really does reduce redness on spots and helps with my HUGE pores from getting clogged..Yuck! The texture of this cream is not like a typical moisturiser, its more like a serum that sinks into your skin quickly. The great thing about this product is you can also use it as a spot treatment and only apply on the areas you need it!
My Clinque moisturiser is my everyday moisturiser that I reach for when my skin is just at its normal state, this stuff is amazing and by first reading the title, I did think it was promising too much but it really does have a dramatically different affect on your skin! My skin felt more hydrated, plump and healthy! The best think about this product is its aimed for oily/combo skin, but as most products that are aimed for that skin type they really leave they skin very dry and not as healthy looking in order to get most out of the anti oil properties in the moisturiser but with the Clinque one, it does both, it help oil stay at bay, and keeps your skin looking fab! WIN WIN. And also if you don't have oily skin and are more Dry/combo they have the same product but its called Dramatically different moisturising Lotion! I have totally fallen in love with this product & I really recommend it!
Now although this next product is not a moisturiser, you use in under one so I decided to slot it in here! This product is called hydraluron, and its quite interesting how this works. You apply a small about all over you face, let it dry then use your moisturiser. It states that it can hold up to 1,000 times it weight in water which is pretty impressive. So basically when you put this on, It keeps your skin very hydrated through out the whole day, and from using it myself I can see the difference. My skin looks so fresh and again plump. When I take my makeup off, This is the time when I can see the true outcome of the product, usually without using this product that day my skin looks so dead and just plain bad. But with is my skin just looks hydrated, which makes my colouration look really good.
