best of 2013: skincare

Sunday, December 29, 2013
Yesterday I published my favourite makeup products of 2013 and promised that I'd show you my favourite skincare products of this year but I've also popped in a cheeky hair product because it was too good to leave out. I've really gotten into skincare and put myself in a strict routine, especially over the past few months and I can safely say my skin has gotten so much better and healthier. For reference, I have combination skin!


As you can see, there are a lot of products so I'll first start with face-related skincare. I've been loving the Bioderma Sensibo H2O solution this year and it's definitely my favourite makeup remover that I've ever tried. It's for the face and eyes and doesn't burn like crazy when you accidentally get it in your eyes! It's only £11.60 for a huge 500ml bottle which I think is amazing value for money. My favourite spot cream/anti-perfection corrector is the La Roche Posay Effeclar Duo. Yet again, everyone loves it but rightly so. It reduces redness and the appearance of blemishes, as well as making pores minimized.

Soap and Glory's Scrub of Your Life has been my favourite facial scrub for a nice, deep cleanse. It removes dead skin easily without feeling like you're rubbing a full bag sugar on your face and smells lovely too. Yummy. Their Sugar Crush scent is one of my all-time favourite scents - I could literally use this as a perfume and be perfectly happy. Their Sugar Crush Body Wash is really hydrating and moisturizing and it's one of my favourite finds of the year.

Burt's Bees is a brand I'd never been interested in until I got their Essential Kit. The Beeswax Lip Balm has been in my bag constantly as it's so rich, moisturizing and smells good too. Can you see a theme occurring here? I also love their Almond and Milk Hand Cream. Yet again, rich, moisturizing and smells good. My L'Occitane Shea Butter has been a life savior for my cuticles this year as they get so dry and dehydrated.

Finally I've added a cheeky hair product that was too good not to show you. John Masters Organics Sea Salt Spray has been my go-to hair product if I want loose, wavy and beachy hair that's easy to do. Simply get out of the bath, spray this in your head and style however you want for volume and texture. It smells of lavender too... Why can't I resist good smelling products?

What's your favourite skin/hair care product of 2013?
