As a beauty blogger I try a lot of different skincare products! I love trying new things and discovering new favourites but I definitely have my holy grail skincare products that I know I can count on no matter what. For today’s post I thought I would share with you the products that never seem to let me down:
Maskeraide SPOTTED! Anti-Blemish Clear Spot Patches*
These salicylic acid patches go on your blemishes overnight to help minimize their appearance. They’re similar to the Kate Somerville EradiKate or the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion but a bit less messy and they don’t have that sulphur scent. They’re also a bit more affordable, which is a nice bonus! If I feel a pimple coming on I apply one of these and it stops the pimple from actually showing up. On existing acne, the patches reduce the size considerably and pimples are gone within 1-3 days.
Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover
This makeup remover works on eyes, and lips. It doesn’t irritate my eyes and does such a great job of removing even my most stubborn makeup. I use different makeup removers all the time, but this one is my all-time favourite that I keep coming back to.
Caudalie Instant Detox Mask
If I’m experiencing a bad breakout, this mask is a total lifesaver! It feels nice on the skin and works really well at cleaning out my pores. It helps fight acne and leaves my skin feeling so clean! When my skin is dry I have to follow up with a rich moisturizer because the mask is a bit drying, which is something to keep in mind.
Pixi Glow Tonic
This toner contains 5% glycolic acid so it tones your skin while exfoliating it. I notice a lot less acne when I use this toner and I love how refreshed it makes my skin!
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask
This mask for starters smells incredible! It’s perfect for nights when I’m feeling too lazy for a mask but I know my skin needs a little something extra. I have to use a thin layer or else my skin will break out, but if you have really dry skin you’ll love all the hydration this mask offers! I find my skin is unbelievably glowing the next morning after it’s applied and it feels so nice on.
Vichy Idéalia Serum*
This serum has really made a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin. My cheeks, especially closer to my nose, have had a bit of texture and this serum has really helped smooth things out. It also smells really nice and absorbs quickly.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peels*
My skin never looks better than when I’m using these peels! My acne is very minimal if anything, my skin looks radiant, and I have no texture issues. These pads are exfoliating and leave my skin feeling so clean!
Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Brightening Solution*
Retinol is a great step to add to your skincare regime, and this one is my favourite! It absorbs quickly and helps with my acne. You can see my full review on it HERE.
