Skin care is extremely important; I have become obsessed with looking after my skin and treating it with love. Skin care is also an important part of achieving flawless makeup!
Over the last year I have tested a large range of brands and products to find my perfect match; I finally have! Although all the products I use aren’t from the same brand they work perfectly together. I have normal – dry skin and suffer from redness and uneven skin tone.
The first brand of skincare I am going to talk about is Clinique, Clinique is an allergy and fragrance free product range. It was actually developed by a dermatologist and was only sold in clinics until they branched out and is now sold in Myer.
I use Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion+ every day and ever night. I LOVE this moisturiser. It is thin in texture but feels rich on the skin, it makes my skin super hydrated and gives me a nice healthy glow.
I also us Clinique’s clarifying lotion 2 (toner) morning and night. I apply a small drop to a cotton pad and swipe it onto my face mainly focusing on my T-zone. This is a strong toner and did take me a while to get used to, but once I did I was in love! It works perfectly for my skin and I feel so fresh after using it.
The second brand of skincare I am going to talk about is ASAP. This brand is relatively new to me but as soon as I started using their products I was in love and it has now found a spot in my every day skin care routine. ASAP skincare is 100% Australian owned and produced which is a huge plus for me, I love supporting local. I was lucky enough to be sent their products from RY.com.au when we were linked though Shopping Links – so a huge thank you!
*please note all opinions are my own*
I use their daily facial cleanser every morning and night. I apply it to wet skin and massage for 30-40 seconds. I love this cleanser it removes all my makeup and all the built up dirt and oils on my face and doesn’t dry out my skin at all unlike other cleanser I have used. The cleanser is oil free, non pore clogging and contains white tea, a powerful antioxidant with anti-ageing properties. The texture of the cleanser is quite runny.
The second products from the ASAP’s skin care range I use is their daily exfoliating scrub. Although this is a daily scrub I only use it every second night. I apply to wet skin after cleansing and massage gently for 30 seconds. This is a very gentle exfoliating scrub it contains smooth round biodegradable beads which remove dead skin cells and exfoliate the skin. It is important you exfoliate your skin to promote cell renewal and stimulate collagen, improving the appearance and texture of your skin.
The final product I use is ASAP’s Super b Complex Serum. I cant praise this product enough, its a must have in my skin care collection. I struggle with redness and uneven skin tone and this products helps reduce the appearance of these issues and boosts my skins hydration. This serum contains high concentration of Vitamin B3 which aids in boosting collagen production. I use this before I moisturiser only once a day!
I am super happy with how clear and hydrated my skin is since using all these products and honestly can’t praise them enough. Finding a skin care routine that works for you is extremely important, using the wrong products for your skin type is a HUGE no! It is worth taking the time to learn your skin type and use the appropriate products.
If you are wanting to purchase any of the products I have mentioned you are able to purchase all Clinique products from the Clinique counter at your local Myer and you can purchase ASAP skin care from Ry.com.au
