A few people have recently asked me what my favourite foundation, lipstick and body creams are…which got me to thinking, I’ve never actually created a list of all my faves in one place for you all to nosey at!
So here goes… I have given a couple of options per category to cater for when you’re feeling rich or struggling with the pennies. Oh, and i’ve made all products mentioned into hyperlinks so you can view the products online for yourself. Enjoy.
After many attempts to gain glowing, clear skin I think I have finally found the right products to achieve this!
So, as you all know by now I have been experiencing problem skin for about 2 years now. I go through phases where it can be clear for weeks but then have a bout of trouble where I can’t find a clear patch on my face I found the Pro-Active range worked well but occasionally couldn’t use the moisturiser (too drying) and the toner ran out after a matter of weeks. I moved on to Estee Lauder, which helped for a week or so then broke me out, then more recently tried the Bobbi Brown Extra range which has erupted my skin like nothing ever before.
Feeling a bit down and out about it, given I am 31 and really should have calm skin by now! I wandered to my closest Origins counter as I recalled having great skin when using their Checks & Balances foaming face wash.
One product I just can’t live without is Origins Modern Friction. When this first launched in 2008, I was already using the Checks & Balances face wash and Perfect World moisturiser and was very pleased with the results. It was when microdermabrasion became very popular on the high street and everyone wanted a share of the limelight.
Origins advertising promised a huge % increase in skin quality; this coupled with the natural ingrediants drove me to purchase the product. It retailed at about £30 which I initially thought was quite expensive but knew it would be better quality than the other cheaper products on offer.
