The Beauty Products That Changed My Skincare Routine
Some of these products have been in my bathroom for ages now, so I could write a review anytime. Others are new entries and I preferred to test them for a while before to share my impressions with you. I think after using the same creams and cleanser for over two months, I’m now ready to share with you my skincare routine.
PRODUCTS THAT CHANGED MY SKINCARE ROUTINE
GARNIER SKINACTIVE – Micellar Cleansing Water in Oil
This is an old favorite of mine. You probably heard me to talk about it before on Instagram Stories. It’s just the perfect cleansing water to use to remove your makeup. I always find a bit hard to remove mascara. After washing my face I look more like a panda! This mix of water and oil helps to clean all traces. APPROVED and I don’t think I’ll ever part from it.
SAFI RANIA GOLD – Deep Moisturising Facial Cleanser
I found this cleanser in a goodie bag, after taking part of an event. I started using it because I was curious about the ingredients. It doesn’t happen every day that you can sprinkle gold onto your skin. After using this product for the past 8 weeks, I can firmly affirm that it’s so good. I use it after Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to deeply clean my skin.
I’ll definitely going to use this cleanser for long time. Eventually I might interchange it with another product that I adore and I talked about it before here.
CLARINS – Double Serum
It’s pretty hard to find the right words to describe this serum. This is THE SERUM! It’s the Holy Grail of all serums. I’m seriosuly impressed by the quality of this product. You realize how good it is even if you use it only once. The first time I applied two drops of Clarins Double Serum I felt like an invisible veil of hydratation landed on my face. It’s like if your skin started to drink the serum. I use it everyday / everytime. When I go out before to put make up on. When I stay home to simply give to my skin a treatment. In the evening after I removed makeup and impurities.
Trust me, your skin needs Clarins Double Serum!
OLAY EYES – Ultimate Eye Cream
Everytime I look myself into a mirror I see how time passes. There are wrinkles around my eyes. I have dark circles, despite the fact that I sleep like a baby for the entire night. Truth is that I’m 34 years old and I can’t think to have the same skin I had when I was in my twenties (although deeply inside I still consider myself a young teen!). When Olay hosted an event to launch three new eye creams, I decided to start using them seriosuly. Day and night, without skipping a single day.
I won’t lie, I haven’t been so committed. I might have skipped some days. But despite that I really liked Ultimate Eye Cream to use during the day. Especially before the makeup. This Olay eye cream is peachy and it helps to balance the dark zones that normally appear under the eye. It’s not a miracle cream, but it’s really great to use both as a treatment and as a base before makeup.
OLAY EYES – Firming Eye Serum
If the Ultimate Eye Cream helps me to reduce the dark circles, this Serum helps me to firm the thin skin around the eyes. It’s easy to apply and I normally dab it with small movements all around the eyes. I really have a fresher look when I wake up in the morning.
OLAY – Regenerist
This is a super anti-aging cream and in fact is very rich and creamy. I consider it a sort of moisturising mask to apply on my face right before I go to sleep. I think you can use Olay Regenerist both day and night but for me it’s too rich to apply under makeup. I need something fresher. But it’s really perfect to boost the skin while I sleep.
