A new video for you here, but as it’s proved to be such a popular one already I’ll give you a bit of an extended blurb. The Five Beauty Products that Changed My Skin has a slightly confusing title, I suppose, because it’s more about the five “types” of product that have changed my skin.
Each product in the video holds a special place in my beauty-lover’s heart; Emma Hardie’s Moringa Balm was the first cleanser that truly made me think of cleansing as a luxurious experience, Effaclar Duo helped me greatly with my adult acne many years ago, Liquid Gold was the first high-performance product that I tested thoroughly (it blew my mind), Medik8’s Crystal Retinal 6 paved my way into a more clued-up retinol-testing era and Hydraluron was the first serum that made me research (and fully appreciate the powers of) hyaluronic acid.
So they were the products that opened my eyes, if you will, to certain skincare techniques and ingredients. Cleansing balms for getting that thorough, silky, beautiful cleanse. Salicylic acid (Effaclar Duo and Paulas’s Choice Skin Perfecting Liquid) for treating acne and breakouts in a very soothing and effective way. Glycolic acid (Liquid Gold, Pixi Glow, lots of different peel pads and masks and creams) for that overnight glow that just blows your mind. Retinol (Medik8) for the most comprehensive hit-every-sign-of-ageing-with-it solution you’ll probably ever try. Hyaluronic acid for hydrating and plumping without having to add any heavy oils or overly rich creams…
All of the details are listed below the video screen, but it’s well worth watching me talk through the skincare choices (if I do say so myself!) to get more of an idea as to whether these types of ingredients might be something you’d like to try. Do leave your comments and questions, whether you type them below or underneath the video on Youtube – I’d love to know which products you think have had a great effect on your skin…
