My skincare wish list – March 2019

Hi everyone! How are you? ❤️ Today I’m going to be sharing my skincare wish list! Recently my skin has been playing up and the dryness, patches and sore areas are more evident than usual. I’m forever flicking through magazines and various products have jumped out and caught my attention so I thought, seeing as I don’t wear makeup, I should step up my skincare routine and take note of what it takes in order to do this so here we are now really! (Simple as 👌😂). The following are six products that I would like to try:

Bio oil dry skin gel

Bio oil is something that has done the rounds in our house for years so when I heard they are now doing a gel for dry skin I didn’t for one minute doubt that it will work as I trust the brand so much! Even the smallest tub is a bit steep in price but I suppose it’s worth it if it works.

Simple kind to skin soothing facial scrub

This is one of the many Simple products that I want to try (as I’m yet to do so with any). I’m just interested to see how beneficial it is towards delicate skin as so many brands claim to be and are quite the opposite but I get the feeling that Simple aren’t lying. I’ve only just realized that I have more body lotions than I do things for my face (and even then the things for my face don’t work 😂) so I think it’s definitely time I take a trip to buy some new things.

Carmex moisturising lip balm

My lips are in a state and Vaseline doesn’t seem to be doing the job on stopping them from drying out so I’m intrigued to see how good products solely advertised for lips work.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost gel cream for dry skin

I’ll admit this was an afterthought added to this post 😂 I’ve been wanting to try a Neutrogena hydro boost product for a while now and after reading a couple of reviews I’ve all the more reason to give them a go! I’ve had both good and bad experiences with Neutrogena stuff so I’m hoping if I get this it will go down well in my books as it sounds so nice!

Vichy mineral 89

A few months ago I used a sample of Vichy mineral 89 and it was brilliant so I’d love to splurge and buy it with the hope that it would still have the same effect. It kept my skin looking hydrated and not all of the liquid absorbed at first so it was like going about my day with the feel of a face mask (maybe I should have halved the sample but it was too good to resist! 😂).

Garnier natural honey flower toner for dry skin

I have the gel wash natural honey flower gel wash (which featured on my October favourites last year HERE) and up until now it’s been really good (I’m at a crossroads right now trying to figure out if it is the cause of my most recent breakout) so I’d like to try an accompanying product!

  1. Be careful with an physical scrub. They aren’t very good for skin. Way too harsh. Chemical exfoliation is probs a better choice. The hydroboost is good. I’m on to my fifth jar at the minute. Glad you have suggested the fragrance free version!! I never use fragrance products.

  2. Carmex lip balms feel so invigorating on your lips and they nourish and banish dry patches without feeling heavy or greasy. They make an excellent base for your favourite lip colours.
    I also love the current cult beauty must have, Cica Creams. Cica Creams are multi-tasking balms that nourish and hydrate dry, rough patches anywhere and soothe the redness and dryness that comes with sensitive skin
