Following my lengthy‘Best makeup discoveries’ of 2018, many of you guys hit me up on Instagram, asking about what skincare products I discovered in 2018. Well you guys know me, I love to give you beauties what you want! So that’s what today’s post is! I promise it won’t be as
Let’s jump right in!
Murad is one brand I’ve
This next face mask is the second product that made a major difference in the texture of my skin. This gem is filled with AHAs/BHAs which is pure magic for my skin. The mask itself has a seriously watery consistency but it helps texture like no other. I’d say this one is more dramatic for smoothing out texture while the Murad mask makes more of a difference for brightening the skin. I swear by this stuff because it’s the first product I tried that actually made a difference to my skin’s texture. I’ll be repurchasing forever!
I am a die-hard fan of the hydro boost range from Neutrogena. I have loved every single product thatI’ve tried from them. This milk gel cleanser being one of them! At
I kind of didn’t want to love this product (because of it’s price tag) but ughhh it’s just so good. Dam you Dermalogica for making dreamy products. This stuff is a gel formulated night cream/treatment that not only helps you sleep better but lets you wake up to glorious skin. I don’t know what it does or how it does it but whenever I use this night cream – my skin looks AMAZING in the morning. Now to savour every last drop before I eventually repurchase this bad boy. |Review|
I’m not a fussy
This one is a new addition to the routine but ever since I’ve started using it my skin has been on another level (*touch wood* I don’t want to piss off the skincare gods and wake up to several breakouts tomorrow). This product basically has the magic of the retinol while also hydrating your skin. I cannot say enough good things about it.
I feel like there area lot of variations of this very serum. It’s essentially a watery droplet serum packed with lots of Hyaluronic
I’ve gone through 3 tubs of the daily glycolic pads but the night extreme ones I prefer so much more. I love how the cotton rounds are super soaked with
This product is quite unique but wonderful. It’s essentially an extremely glowy moisturizer! If you have super dry skin this will be a glorious moisturizer for you because aside from being very hydrating, it has a pearlescent finish that gives you a super glow! Because of my oily t-zone I use this as a primer and sometimes dab a little on my cheekbones on no-makeup makeup days. It’s a multi-purpose product filled with good ingredients that also can work as a makeup product.
Speaking of multi-purpose products this one is from pixi and it’s a good one. It’s essentially a moisturizer, face mask and primer all in one. I love using it as a primer because it’s super hydrating but lightweight and it’s filled with wonderful skin-loving ingredients. It has a gel like consistency and sinks in super quick. I love how this wears underneath makeup as though it’s hydrating, it doesn’t cause the makeup to slip and slide.
This product is quite unique. It’s a serum-
Gel moisturizers are my forever obsession. It’s rare for me to enjoy a moisturizer these days if it isn’t gel based and this one from Patchology is just that plus more! I feel like it has an almost jelly consistency and it bursts when applied to the skin, soaking the skin with a lot of hydration and absorbing within a minute. It’s super light-weight but its hydrating effects last ages – it also works nicely underneath makeup. The downside is the only place to get this is off the official Patchology website, for us Aussies that’s a hell of a long time waiting for it to ship out. If it does come to Australia (via easy access) I definitely will be repurchasing it.
This is fairly new so I can’t go into detail about it just yet I’ve only used it a couple of times. From just using a couple of times I can tell you that I’m in love! It tingles the skin (in a good way) and when you rinse it off, your skin feels so incredibly smooth! I can tell that this one will be a fast favourite.
You guys know how I feel about cleansing oils! They are the ultimate way to remove makeup … don’t fight me on this! This particular one is so unique, it’s by a Korean skincare brand (Korean skincare something I’ve become obsessed with this year) and it’s literally the magic of a cleansing oil only it feels like straight up water on the skin. This is perfect for those who find regular cleansing oils to be too greasy or even for us dry/dehydrated skin gals in the summer time.
This particular product is a cult classic and there’s a reason why – because it’s awesome! Prior to trying this classic, I wasn’t a major fan of glycolic acid because I was convinced it didn’t agree with my skin. After using the glow tonic I realised glycolic acid could exfoliate your skin without drying it out. This one is super nourishing while still doing what glycolic acid should do – brighten your complexion! This will definitely be a forever repurchase! |Review|
Another standout product from Murad. I use to only use this face mask on my nose and I liked it but I realised it makes an awesome all over face mask. Whenever I’ve been fairly bad with my skincare consistency I like to whip out this face mask, slap it on and it feels like a reset button has been hit on my skin. My skin feels clean and smooth (without being dried out). The formula of the mask is also a little gritty so as you rinse off your face, you’re giving it a gentle scrub too. I don’t know what it is about this face mask but me being so lazy and inconsistent with face masks – this is frequently used. I’m in need of repurchasing it too because I’m almost out of it.
Last but not least is another face mask, this one is from Nutrimetics! It’s a clarifying charcoal-
