2013 Skincare Favourites ♥

Hey girlie's!!!


So we may have waved goodbye to 2013 but we can still appreciate a few products we've loved throughout last year cant we? So today I thought I'd do a little round up of a few skincare products that have become either favourites of mine or staple products that I repurchase over and over and cant live without otherwise my skin would be really dull and probably majorly dry. I've already put up my 2013 Beauty Favourites and my 2013 Haircare Favourites so feel free to have a nosey at those if you'd like.

B.Pure Micellar Water
2013 was definitely a year for Micellar waters, I really wanted to try Bioderma but with it being hard to get hold of and the fact its not really affordable for me I decided to try Superdrugs B.Pure offering and I'm so glad I did as I love it. I use the 3-in-1 cleanser every night to quickly and effectively remove all of my face makeup, it's extremely gentle and there's no water required to rinse off either, simple!!!

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes
You will notice I absolutely love Simple Skincare products!!! I have extremely sensitive skin and everything in the Simple range is a complete gem to me. I use these facial wipes every morning after my shower just to make sure my face is completely clean and that my eyes are free from any mascara that might have been left behind the night before, they are so gentle around the eye area, and are the only wipes that don't sting my eyes, I've honestly been repurchasing them for years, I just love them!!!

Simple Moisturising Facial Wash
Another Simple product I couldn't be without.... I use this facial wash most evenings before I cleanse and it does a really great job of completely cleaning your skin, it gets most traces of makeup off and leaves your skin feeling super soft and moisturised.

Dr.Brandt Microdermabrsion Skin Efoliant
Ive been addicted to this stuff ever since I received this sample in my Birchbox in October and even though it is only a sample size it has lasted me ages as I only use a small amount each time. It's basically an amazing skin exfoliant that I've been using once or twice a week and the improvement in my skins appearance since ive used it is phenomenal, my skin is just so clear and near enough perfect! It's a shame the full size is a whopping £67.00, but I love it so much that I might splurge and treat myself, I could always put my Birchbox points towards it to he he.

Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser
This moisturiser is lovely and again has been a favourite for years, I use the rich version in the winter as my skin gets more dry when its colder and then I switch it up abit and use the light version in the summer when my skin is not so dry. Theres not much to say apart from it does the job and it sits nicely under foundation too.

Vichy Idealia Life Serum
Serums where never really my thing until I discovered Vichy's offering, it had just made a huge difference in my skins appearance and also how my make up sits on my skin too.  The serums lightweight, pearly formula creates the best make up base I've ever come across, my foundation blends into my skin so quickly, effortlessly and just looked completely flawless. Also the serum is targeted towards making your skin look more radiant so it has a slight pearly sheen to it, which makes my skin look so healthy, glowing and slightly luminous too. 

And there you have it, a few of my favourite skincare products that really have made a difference in my skin during 2013.

What have your skincare favourites been during 2013??? Leave me your links if you've done a similar post as I'd love to read it.

  9. I'm a massive fan of any Simple products, great to see someone else loving the B.Pure Micellar Water (after everyone seemed to go on the L'oreal hype, which I found dried my skin) I love it.
    Not a massive fan of serums though but the Vichy Idealia Life one sounds incredible, never heard of it before though, how much does it cost? xxx
