New Favourites

IMG_0399I’ve recently revamped my beauty routine. I still use the Clarins products I spoke about, but they will soon be empty, so I decided to make use of my time here in the States, and find a couple of products that would also suit my skin. I looked for products containing similar ingredients and with similar effects on my skin like my favourites, and stumbled upon this foaming cleanser by Bliss, and this moisturizer by Philosophy.

IMG_0397These face care products are both meant to wake up and energize my skin. Instead of Ginkgo extract like in the Clarins Energizer, these products contain oxygen. Upon application I didn’t feel any different from before. There was no immediate wakeup call like with the Clarins products, but the cleanser is effective if you did not remove all your makeup the night before. After using the cleanser, I applied tonic, and then the cream, which is uncomfortably gel-like and gummy. It left my skin looking slightly greasy as it takes a while to seep in, so I wouldn’t recommend applying makeup afterwards. Once the moisturizer set however, my skin was as soft as a baby’s bum.

Speaking of Tonics, I’ve been continuing the use of my Wake-up boosting tonic, and my Dr Haushka Tonic water, but I’ve also found a new one that I’m very much enjoying:

I’ve also tested an array of masks.

I’m obsessed with black heads on my nose. I’ll go to any length to squeeze them out, leaving my skin flaky and dry. To help prevent the need to squeeze them out manually, I’ve been looking for pore-cleansing face care to prevent my unhealthy habit.

This was the first tried and tested product. It was a sample size, and I was very impressed with the results. It’s great for targeting the porous area!

IMG_0798My next favourite mask is great for the whole face.

My skin was left radiant and visibly more clear than before. I now walk around even more confidently without makeup 😉

Stay tuned for the rest of my Thanksgiving weekend, more beauty faves and much, much more!

With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
