My Summer Skincare Video!

This is the follow-up video to the ‘clear skin secrets’ one. Or whatever it was called. It basically covers my usual ‘routine’ from waking until bedtime – beauty stuff only, obviously, otherwise it would be a bloody long video! I couldn’t possibly fit in everything that I put on my face so I have narrowed down each section to a few core products that I buy again and again. I’ll be doing more features focusing in on specific parts of the routine – day moisturisers, primers, exfoliants, weekly treatments.. All in good time!

The longest product info list in the world has been published beneath the video pane – I suggest that you make your tea/feed the cats/write your will before starting to read it!

  1. Hi Ruth, are these in any particular order (ie your fave at the top of each section?)
    I gathered together all my beauty products last night to see what I have – man I needed a bigger box! Love the blog and buy a lot of your recommendations. Keep up the good work. x

    • @jojo no, they are all my faves. I have loads more stuff that I use on a regular basis but couldn’t fit it all in, so the ones I have included are my ‘staple’ products. x

  2. I keep trying to buy the Bioderma at Zuneta, but it’s always sold out! Maybe I shall just pick it up next time I’m in Paris. Anyways…the vichy water looks great too! Would you say that would suit sensetive skin?

  3. Oh no so much products so little skin. I love skincare posts, I love to see what people use and why they chose what they chose. Thankyou for this Ruth, I was happily settled into Pai but watched QVC last night with some spectacular Sarah Chapman offers which somehow slipped into my basket ….oops, now I can see that some of the La Roch Posay may do the same! x

    • @Jan ooh, Sarah Chapman! Now I have really been wanting to try her stuff for a while but keep forgetting to look into it! Do you rate them? x

  4. I do like SC, and amazingly QVC prices are not bad, there is some talk that the ingredients are a bit heavy on the silicone and if you are not a fan of jasmine or any white floral scent then I would steer clear, but so saying my skin seems to have a real affinity with her products, the Ultimate Cleanse is extremely soothing but effective and the Overnight Facial really is divine. I did a post on them in my last blog but being a grumpy old beauty bag got rid of it in a fit of pique so am building up again slowly. Sorry essay as per. Jan x

  5. Wow! What a brilliant video. You fitted so much useful information in. I always love your videos but this one was particularly great :-)

    Thanks for all the work you put into A Model Recommends. It’s fab!

  6. Ohh this is a great post, thank you! I clicked the link for the Strivectin SD Eye Cream but it seems to go to the Tri-Enzyme. I quite fancy trying it as I’m due a new eye cream – I was previously using the Alpha-H one, and it was great.

  7. Good informative video,as usual.This may be a futile question as you are blemish-free(!),but any recommendations for spot treatments?

    • @White cat I heartily recommend the LMS light thingy that you blast them with, or Dr Nick Lowe spot gel is also excellent! x

  8. great video ruth.

    what eyeshadow are you wearing? i think i’m in love with it.

    are they giorgio armani shadows you blogged about before?

  9. em i just saw you’ve listed them there. i’m really embarrassed now!

  10. Gosh Ruth- between ordering the entire range from PAI last month and now the Liquid Gold from Beauty Bay…let’s just say I had to stop myself from ordering the Bioderma cleanser from Amazon. Sheesh!

    • @Suzi argh! Hahaha, so sorry! Maybe I should switch to fashion posts for a while – but I just caned a small fortune last month, so that might not be too good either! x
