Spring Skincare

Spring has finally sprung and it is that time of the year when we all just love to declutter and review our looks and style. In the beauty world, this is something that is absolutely necessary because after all of these new buys and clutter stored out away in our vanity drawers we sometimes forget what we have so it is a nice idea. Toss away anything you haven't used, as well as products that have probably expired. This is also a good time to re-vamp your skincare. It is always a good idea to change up and slightly alter our routine once in a while and spring is always the perfect excuse. Today, I am here to suggest a few great products to change in your skincare routine and make it that much more interesting.

When spring arrives skincare should always become simpler, in my opinion, as the weather is not as harsh as in winter and autumn. That, of course, always depends on where you live, too, but that is another story. Spring is generaly milder that winter anyway. This means that you get away using less products, which for me is great thing, as I can get really lazy with my skincare routine. All you need is 3 basic really great products: cleanser, scrub and moisturiser. You can also add to your routine eye cream, mask and a toner. Let's take it step by step.

Cleanser - Tom Ford : Purifying Cleansing Oil

This is a miracle product that it is an oil form (as you can also see from the name) that cleanses and detoxifies the skin and it also works as a makeup remover. So this is basically a 3-in-1 product. According to tomford.com, to do all these amazing things, it "uses a combination of nutrient-rich natural oils to cleanse and detoxify skin without disrupting tis moisture barrier". Also, "it removes makeup, damaging impurities and environmental toxins, while refreshing the skin, preparing it for moisture". The result is amazing, the feeling gorgeous, the scent like no other, your skin feels and looks cleaner and more radiant than ever. You can use it day and night. You must definitely try it. Even though it is quite expensive, I can assure you that it is worth every cent!

 

Scrub - Bobbi Brown Buffing Grains for the Face:

This is a great, unique product that you can use to exfoliate. It is one of the best even though not many people talk about it. Its magic ingredient is the Japanese adzuki bean powder to help exfoliate gently. What is really unique about this amazing product is that you can mix it up with any Bobbi Brown cleanser or water to create your own ideal, customised, perfect skincare product. This product is for all skin types

 

Moisturiser - Chanel Hydra Beauty Gel Cream:

This moisturiser is just so cool, and calming, and refreshing, and smells of perfection. It is one of my faves and if you try it you'll know why. Still, it comes in different textures, so if gel is not really your thing you can have it in other textures. It really is perfection. Accoring to chanel.com, this cream and the Hydralife skincare family contains Camellia Alba PFA which "helps the skin restore and maintain optimal moisture levels in the cells" and Blue Ginger which "protects the skin from free radicals and reinforces its cellular self-defense system". As you understand it is quite amazing! 

 

Concerning these extra products I mentioned above, you can see my favourites below.

Toner - Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic

This is an amazing toner that feels just so amazingly refreshing due to its cucumber scent. It is my favourite part of my skincare routine. Toners are not necessary in our routine. What they do, is they remove the salts left from the water while cleansing our face one step earlier. They are applied with a cotton pad after the cleanser. This particular one is especially great for people with dry or sensitive skin. According to bobbibrown.co.uk, this great product is enriched with "Enriched Mineral Water Blend, plus Cucumber, Chamomile, Licorice, Aloe Leaf and Lavender soothe and soften skin. Vitamin B5 softens and conditions so skin is prepared for the next treatment step".

 

Eye Cream - Chanel Hydra Beauty Gel Yeux:

This is one of my two favourite eye creams. It is again in a gel texture which makes it extremely refreshing and it is such a pleasure to use. According to chanel.com it "comforts, softens and smoothes the eye contour. It gently beautifies the eyes". First results are visible only after a month of use. I have to admit that I can't do my eye makeup without it.
