My skincare regime

skin care collage

I had a few people ask in the past couple of weeks what skincare products I like to use. In the past, I’ve never been loyal to one brand, generally just picking whatever was on offer up in whichever shop I happened to be passing. I’ve come to realise that I’m not in my twenties {sob} anymore and perhaps I should take a little more care!

Since having children my skin has become quite dry. It feels tight when I wake up in the morning, and often by half-way through the day too. I’ve taught myself to actually wash my face and take my makeup off every.single.night ;) I’ve been loving this Organic Surge facewash*, it leaves my skin feeling clean but not dried out at all. I still suffer from the odd spot, usually hormonal, and around my chin and nose. Since using this, these seem to have decreased which is always a bonus ha!

As a busy mama who never gets enough sleep, a fantastic eye cream is a must! I’ve been using this HealGel* eyecream for a couple of months and I am hooked. It isn’t the cheapest, but it’s oh so good. I only use a little so the bottle actually lasts for quite a long time too. My dark circles have faded since I started using it, and my whole eye area feels smoother and less dry and tired. I would really recommend this product as a must have!

Finally, I have been testing out this Pure Chimp Super Cream. The first time I used it, I was really dubious. It feels quite gritty when you first apply it, and a little greasy. However, I found that the gritiness vanishes, and it sinks into your skin leaving so well. After a week of using this, I was sold on it. My skin feels so much softer and more moisturised, and the tightness doesn’t come back mid-way through the day like it was with previous moisturisers I have tried out. I love that it is 100% and vegan too.

    I’ve seen the Organic Surge before, and keep picking it up and putting it down, but I think I’ll actually give it a go now – thanks!

    I haven’t heard of Pure Chimp. I use Puristics Anti Aging skin care products that work well for me. But where would I find Pure Chimp?

    I am really flighty with stuff like shampoo but have used Olay daily fluid with SPF15 for about 20 years now. No idea if it has contributed to me still being asked for ID sometimes but you never know!

      oooh!! not worth risking changing now!! i got asked for ID last year – made my day!!

    Ooooo, i love a good skin care post. My skin is AWFUL at the moment – especially my ‘haven’t slept for 8 years / more wrinkles than i’d like for age 34 years’ eyes, so that eye cream will be getting further research from me!!

      same here :/ too many years of not having enough sleep are taking their toll!

    I love the look of the Pure Chimp cream. I need to take more care with my skin, I’m awful but I’m 30 this year and two kids has resulted in me always being stressed so I need to take action! I get spots too which I hate. Probably why I still get ID’ed for matches!! x

    OK I need that eye cream!! my eye bags are something else, you look so useful so I’m trusting your advice x

    Oooh I love organic surge and I have also just about to start using the Healgel eye cream – which I hope works because my eyes always look tired. Great products :)
