Face care should be an inseparable element of everyone’s day, regardless of gender, age, lifestyle, or skin type. You have never had the opportunity to read about my skincare routine yet because I’m still learning about it and looking for the perfect cosmetics for me. It’s true, however, that the selection of products should depend not only on ourselves but also on the weather because our skin behaves differently in warm temperatures and differently in cold ones.
Personally, I started paying attention to it relatively recently, because I used to believe that the Nivea cream applied before make-up and the micellar water that gets rid of it should be enough. I’m well aware of the fact that there are many more people who think this way or are just initiating all this.
In this post, I will introduce you to the products that I’ve been testing on myself for several months, and for now, I’m satisfied with them. Let me just mention that, fortunately, I don’t have problematic skin, and I encounter pimples on my face once in a while, but it tends to dry out. However, I won’t talk more about the above-mentioned products here, i.e. micellar Garnier water and Nivea cream, because I’m convinced that most of you know them.
Hello Body Coco Gold Oil £54,99
Everyone who follows Instagram has heard about the brand itself. To be honest, the number of ads did put me off a lot because I wasn’t sure if they were credible. Only after the opportunity to try a few products, I decided to buy it, because the first impression was very positive.
On the manufacturer’s website, we can read that it contains 24-carat gold, and it not only brightens, nourishes, and moisturizes, but also antibacterial and anti-wrinkle. The product also includes coconut oil (antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties), shea butter (smoothing, moisturizing and anti-wrinkle properties), rosehip seeds (repairing, elasticizing, and regenerating properties). All of the above-mentioned products prevent the skin from drying out.
The oil perfectly illuminates and moisturizes my skin for several hours. I use it every morning and it makes my skin look really refreshed.
Garnier Anti-Blackhead Peel-Off £5,99
Blackheads are the nightmare of many of us. They can be mainly noticed on the nose and chin, and they arise due to improper exfoliation of the epidermis and high production of fat by the sebaceous glands. A high-fat diet and too much chocolate also contribute to their formation.
The mask that I’m presenting didn’t impress me much at first. The only effect I noticed was soft and moisturized skin. However, after a few weeks of use, I noticed that the number of blackheads on my nose was reduced. However, they came back when at some point I stopped using it. Now it has reappeared in my skincare and I use it once a week. I apply it to the entire T-zone and leave it for about 30 minutes until everything is dry. After that I gently tear off the mask.
CBD Cannabidoil Mask Bielenda £1,49
CBD oil is becoming more and more popular on our market. Quite often we hear about its great healing properties. It turns out, however, that it works equally well on our skin. It reduces the number of sebaceous glands and also has an anti-acne effect. I have been testing several products of this line from the Bielenda brand for a long time, and all of them made a good impression on me.
There are two moisturizing and soothing, and moisturizing and detoxifying masks to choose from. Personally, I usually choose products with these first properties because they are intended for dry skin. 8g of the product should be enough for two uses, so one package lasts a week. I use it twice a week while bathing and leave it for 15-20 minutes. After washing it with lukewarm water, the skin of the face immediately seems smoother and more moisturized. The composition also includes cacay oil (regenerating and healing properties), vitamin E (anti-inflammatory properties, and minimizing damage caused by UV radiation), lactic acid (moisturizing, and hydrating properties).
CBD Cannabidoil Facial Cleansing Oil Bielenda £5,99
My number one when it comes to this cosmetics line. Its composition does not differ much from that of the mask presented earlier. It also regenerates, cleans, refreshes, and removes dead skin cells.
I use this oil every evening and after washing my make-up with micellar water. The only downside – it hasn’t got a very pleasant smell, but it does not hit our nostrils too much.
CBD Cannabidoil Moisturizing Cream £5,50
I bought this cream by mistake because it is intended for oily or mixed skin. Nevertheless, I decided to try it out and I must admit that it works just as well for dry skin. I haven’t had a chance to use this cream for dry skin, so I can’t compare it. However, this one goes very well with the mask and the moisturizing and soothing oil.
The composition of the cream is similar to the previous products, but vitamin E is replaced here by vitamin B3. It doenn’t only protects, smoothes, and moisturizes but also acts as an antioxidant and reduces discoloration.
I use it once a day – in the evening.
Hello Body Coco Rich Lip Balm £14,99
When it comes to the skincare routine, we can’t forget about the lips. They are quite an important part of it. Until recently, I used to moisturize them only before applying lipstick. However, since Hello Body moisturizing lip balm fell into my hands, I can’t imagine an evening without it. Since I started using it, my lips feel much more hydrated and seem fuller. The consistency of the product is quite dense but delicate.
The product, apart from coconut oil, also includes: olive oil, which enhances the lips, karite butter (regenerating and rebuilding properties), beeswax (moisturizing properties) and wild rose seeds (repairing, elasticizing, and regenerating properties).
