Current Skincare Favourites #3

Posted in Beauty

Wow.  As if it has been over a year since my last “current skincare favourites” post.   Where has the time gone?   Let’s get matters up to date by me telling you all about the products my face is currently loving.

Current Skincare Favourites 3 - Famous in Japan

MERUMAYA Melting Cleansing Balm | Elemis Lavender Mask | Elemis Tri Enzyme Mask | La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] | ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum

Even though I’m still fairly new to the world of cleansing balms and melting cleansers, after discovering the MERUMAYA Melting Cleansing Balm I’m not in a hurry to try any others.  It is so gentle; cleansing my skin without stripping or leaving an annoying oily residue like other cleansing balms do.   *At the time of writing, MERUMAYA are currently offering an AMAZING 5 piece gift with ANY online purchase until 18 October.  Go, go, GO!*

I love face masks, as they guarantee me a full 10 minutes of “me-time”.   I have been reaching for these two gems from Elemis for a few weeks now; no other mask has got a look in!   I love to use the Elemis Herbal Lavender Mask for a gentle, yet deep cleanse, as well as the Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Gel Mask to gently exfoliate, brighten and smooth.   It will be a sad day for my face when these run out!

Whilst I haven’t had any serious breakouts in a while, I am prone to annoying whiteheads.  When they pop up, out comes the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+]. This magic serum zaps them away and usually by the next morning they are gone.  I have even converted my brother to this serum, which is a pretty big deal.

Whenever I have a skin complaint, I reach for the ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum.   Feeling a little dry?  ProSerum.  Feeling a little angry?  ProSerum.  Looking dull?  ProSerum.  I could do this all day!  This wonder oil boasts ingredients such as omega oils and plant extracts, and boy, oh boy, does my face love it.   I have been using it lately as part of a facial massage routine; it glides on my skin without simply sitting on the surface.    My skin feels so healthy and nourished after use, with a velvet-smooth touch to boot.  L-O-V-E!

    Would you say the Merumaya Cleansing balm is better than Liz Earle? :) I’m bored with C&P now and this sounds great xx

      Hmm, I would say the MeruMaya is a lot more gentle on the skin compared to Liz Earle as it transforms into an oil when you massage it in compared to Liz Earle that is a cream. Plus, MeruMaya isn’t as “active” as Liz Earle so the risk of reaction is lower. It all depends on your skin, but I think more people will get on with the MeruMaya. xx
