In case you were wondering, WOMF stands for What’s On My Face!!
Every month I shall blog about my skin care routine, the products I am using, what I love about them and what I don’t! In doing so, I hope to inspire you to try out new things!
As always, please feel free to share your favourite products, recommend some I should try out etc…! I LOVE to hear your feedback :).
WOMF #1 (July 2013)
This month I’m using:
- Bioderma Sebium Purifying & Foaming Cleansing Gel
I’ve used the Neutrogena Deep Clean for a few weeks and absolutely loved it (see my review here) but when I ran out, I went back to using my good ol’ Bioderma cleaner. I had forgotten how I use to love this one too! It just gets rid of all the make-up and dirt that can accumulate on your face after a long & hard day of labour! It doesn’t dry out your skin and leaves it all refreshed, cleaned & polished!
- Soap & Glory ‘Scrub your nose in it’
Twice a week I make sure to give my skin a little exfoliation to make sure I get rid all dead cells, clean out my clogged pores (in the weather your skin can build up a lot of oil!) and just give it a good polish. One drugstore brand I discovered back when I lived in the UK is Soap & Glory! I just loved the packaging, the quirky product names and gave it a try! I’ve now used their scrub for a few years and still love it.
Bonus beauty tip: Layer the scrub all over your face and leave it on for a few minutes for a quick deep cleansing mask
- Dermalogica UltraCalming Serum Concentrate
When the weather gets this hot, my skin gets ubber sensitive and just goes red in the T-zone. I recently started using the Dermalogica UltraCalming Serum which came highly recommended by one of my “beautista” friend. So far, it has given me great results. The redness has gone down dramatically and it seems my skin has adopted it so I shall carry on using it twice a day, throughout the Summer.
- Yves Rocher ‘Cure Solutions’ Eye Cream
Right this one you can’t actually get it here sorry! Yves Rocher is a French brand, very similar to the Body Shop whereby they sell natural products. I get my YR fix every time I go home and have been loving their eye cream for years! PLUS it’s super cheap! Like 2-3 euros so bargain I say! The cream is green which (apparently) cancels out any dark shadows under the eye… I don’t really get dark circles so certainly won’t recommend using this particular product if you suffer from it but with me, it does the ticket!
I’m almost at the end of the tube and intend of switching to a new one over the next week or so… watch this space!
- Dior HydraLife Skin Perfect Pore Refining Moisturizer
This is my latest ‘lux’ beauty buy! I was on the look out for a new moisturizer and thought I would treat myself to a little Dior! Why not?! I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and am not unhappy with it! It does claim to soothe & uniform your skin tone, buff out your pores and smooth out small lines… I’m not saying this isn’t a great product but I am missing the WOW factor here… haven’t seen any difference to my previous (MUCH cheaper) day cream from Dermalogica.
I’ll give it another few weeks and see what happens!
- Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF30
I said it and I’ll say it again, you MUST wear an SPF, every single day! No exceptions and NO excuses! And because I actually do walk the talk (or is it talk the walk… mmmm…) I do wear one which I apply liberally over my entire face & neck (oh and ears! We always forget about the ears but they do catch the sun too!!!).
I discovered the Neutrogena UltraShee Dry-Touch SPF a couple of months ago and haven’t looked back! (Read my full review here). I use the SPF30 but if your skin is a light or very pale, they have SPF50 and evern SPF100!
There you have it! I’ve already selected a few bits & bobs I’m gonna be using next month during my holidays and cannot wait to report on these!
Until then, stay glam and WEAR YOUR SPF EVERYDAY!
