Products that I swear by !!
To find products that are worth the money are very hard. VERY HARD. All the endorsements and word of mouth leave us very confused !
Our friends say ” OMG I FOUND THIS PRODUCT, IT’S SO GOOD ! WE GET SUPER TEMPTED, BUY IT, USE IT AND END UP WITH HORRIBLE BREAKOUTS !! ” Thanks to my genes I don’t have skin that usually has breakouts, but I do get blemishes when I use new products ! I always always patch test a new product at least for two days before using it on my face !
After using many products and failing terribly, I came across the good ones. The products in this post are very basic to skin care routine and are the ones I swear by !! I have combination to oily skin and these work great with my skin. You might find these products a little expensive, but trust me investing in products that you use on your face everyday is the best type of investment because remember the skin on your face is very very sensitive and it needs the best care you can give !
1. SEAWEED PURIFYING CLEANSER by BODYSHOP
I am huge fan of cleansing milks ! They not only cleanse your face but also leave your skin very soft and oil free. All of you have to do is either squeeze little onto a cotton pad and wipe your face with it or you could apply a little bit on your face and massage it and then wipe it off with a tissue.
After a long day out/date night, when you just do not have the energy to wash your face you can just cleanse it with this cleanser and hit the sack without worrying about any breakouts the next morning ! Oh wait, you could use this to remove your make up too. Let it do the 2 in 1 job of cleansing and make up removal !
You will only need a few drops of it, so it will last you months, You could even do this as a daily routine before applying your toner.
COST: 795/- for 200ml
2. CIPLA VITAMIN-C SERUM !
This was suggested to me by my dermatologist and I have been using it religiously for over a year now. Serums work differently on different skin so its always better to consult your dermatologist before using them. However, since this is a serum that has only 15% vitamin c it is considerably safe for daily use.
Serums are best if used after washing your face and before the sunscreen. Serums might dry out your skin, so always apply a moisturizer or a sunscreen once the skin has absorbed the serum !
This is great for improving the overall skin complexion and correcting any blemishes/dark skin(pigmentation) if used for 2-3 months !! It is a long time yes, but hey flawless skin takes time ! It is very important to invest it a great serum as you will using it everyday.
COST 1600/- for 15ml
3. VITAMIN C FACIAL RADIANCE CAPSULES by BODYSHOP!
This is another vitamin c product that I loveeeee ! Vitamin c products are truly a boon to skin care. They revive your skin’s complexion and smooth out the texture ! Well, aren’t these two what we want most for our skin ? YES YES !
At night after cleansing your face, just apply one capsule on your face and you will start seeing the difference in about 8-10 days ! One capsule might seem small but is actually more than sufficient. Dot your face and massage in an upward-outward motion.
COST 1995 for 28 capsules (one box)
4. CANE SUGAR LIP SCRUB by FOREST ESSENTIALS !
This is another favorite of mine ! Who doesn’t love soft luscious lips ? I use this scrub thrice a week. It may not give your lips a super pink tinge/color but sure does improve the texture and removes the dead skin.
Take a pea amount and scrub your lips for about 3-5 minutes and wipe off with a tissue. It smells soooooo good that sometimes I just lick it 😛 It tastes like orange flavored sugar. LOL
P.C : My own ( sorry about the quality lol :p )
Let me know what you think of these products ! And hey do not forget to tell me what your favorite products are ! 😀
