I have been wanting to put this post together for quite some time, but never quite got around to it. (It's probably due to it being a pain to shoot - you may have seen me moaning on Twitter about how hard it is to shoot all white products on a white background.) Anyways, it's finally going up and I'm super excited to share with you the products I've been test driving for the past few months!
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser [m,n] : This is my day and night time cleanser. It's a gentle, yet effective cleanser that removes makeup without stripping the skin and making it feel tight. It also smells great (nice and fresh) which is perfect for the morning and is perfect for sensitive skin.
Kate Somerville True Lash Makeup Remover [n] : I switched to this eye makeup remover back in September and have been really pleased with it so far. It's a cream product that is super gentle on the eyes but does a great job of removing makeup. I put a tiny amount on my eyelids and then use a cotton swab to take off the product. What I love about this product, is how little of it I need and how I don't have to pull and tug at my eyes.
REN Instant Beauty Shot Serum* [m] : I love using this product each morning before putting on makeup. It instantly tightens and plumps up the skin, leaving a great base for makeup. It can also be used on top of makeup for an instant refresh.
Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizer [m, n] : This moisturizer had been on my list for a long time and when I snagged the eye makeup remover I picked this one up too. It's super hydrating (perfect for cooler weather) without being really thick making it perfect for day or night application. It has a clean scent. It is perfect for sensitive skin that is dry or combination. It helps to balance the skin and the lactic acid acts as a gentle exfoliator that doesn't irritate.
Clarins Instant Flash Beauty Balm [m] : My favorite way to prime the skin each morning. This product is an instant flash (literally) of intense hydration that helps foundation go on super smooth and naturally.
Kate Somerville Exolikate* [m/n] : This exfoliator is one of those that just leaves your skin feeling good after using it. It's a bit more of an intense (granulated) exfoliation, but it's perfect for once or twice a week to really get a clean feeling. I find that makeup goes on so well after using it.
REN Flash 1 Minute Facial* [m] : This is my favorite product to use on those mornings when my skin is feeling a bit tired, dull, and grey. It's a super quick (literally one minute) and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and smooth.
REN Wake Wonderful Overnight Facial* [n] : Another great product to use a couple times a week. It's a gentle exfoliation that works overnight to help smooth skin and really give it a refresh.
