Now let’s talk about beauty & skin care a little!
Another one of my (many) beauty crushes is skin care brand Dermalogica, which I’ve now been using for almost 6 years!
Rewind back to my early 20’s: all remember our 20’s? Shiny, spotty skin, bad (terrible) make-up (what were we thinking??), no money for facials or branded products? Remember now? Well, we’ve ALL been there! I still remember using Vitamine E cream from Superdrug!! Like who does that?!
And then one day, I decided to treat myself to a deep-cleaning facial! And so I go to my local beauty salon in East London and this is where I discovered Dermalogica! I remember thinking that the products smelled very ‘natural’, it didn’t irritate my skin at all and I left with a glow in my step, and a trial-size pack of Dermalogica goodies in my bag!
I’ve never looked back and have used this stuff ever since! The products are a little expensive although still reasonable compare to other brands, but most importantly they will last you for months.
Here is what my daytime skin care routine looks like:
Step 1: Cleanse your face with Special Cleansing Gel, suitable for ALL skin types (AED150)
Now this one I absolutely ADORE! Melts away all of your make-up, even waterproof mascara, gets rid of all that yuk to leave a perfect, cleaned canvas. Another one which is great is the Bioderma Sebium Foaming gel 200 (see).
Step 2: Spritz on the Multi-Active Toner (AED150)
I’ve tried many many different toners including the Clinique n2 and this one has to be the best. It doesn’t irritate the skin, lasts for EVER and really hydrate the skin allowing the follow up products to really penetrate.
Step 3: Smooth on Hydrating Booster (AED280)
You don’t have to use a ‘booster’ or ‘serum’. My skin gets very dehydrated and as a results tends to break out. THIS is the only thing that has given me results! Just spread a thin layer over your skin, followed by your moisturizer.
Step 4: Apply Active Moist all over (AED230)
I looooove that moisturizer. Massive CRUSH on this one. Non-greasy but still rich enough to properly moisturize the skin. Feels gorgeous on and really prepare your skin for make-up. Only downside is that it doesn’t not have an SPF so I would usually make sure my BB creams or foundation has one. We will talk about SPF in another post.
So there you have it, the Glam Crush Girl‘s everyday skin care routine! I hear you asking ‘But what about eye cream??’! Well, I can’t give up all my glam secrets at once now can I? 😉
What are your favorite products!! Want me to review a particular one for you?
