2012 Favourites: Skincare


Skincare is something I've really gotten into this year. I'd always been a face wipe and cream cleanser kind of girl, now I love my little routines I have, and definitely think skincare can be more exciting than make-up at times!


Origins Night-A-Mins High Potency Night Cream - For the longest time I always thought it was pointless to spend a load of money on a night cream, but this guy has changed my mind. It has something in it (I'm not very technical) that gently exfoliates the skin and leaves skin looking and feeling new in the morning.

REN AHA Concentrate - I only got this toward the end of the year, and it works in the same way as the cream above, it is a chemical exfoliant that eats away the dead skin cells on your face and leaves your skin looking brighter and clearer in the morning.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - I use this after nights I've given my face an exfoliation, and it really plumps the skin back up and leaves your skin hydrated and fresh in the morning.

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Cleansing Balm - The most luxurious cleanser ever. I look forward to using this every night. It just leaves my skin feeling cleans and moisturized and smells gorgeous.

Garnier Make-up Remover - I use this before using the Emma Haride to break down my make-up and remove the majority of it. It works in the same way as Bioderma, and as I've never tried Bioderma I can't fully compare, but it's cheaper and easier to get.

What have your skincare faves been?

  2. I have that make-up remover too! I love it so much! It removes all of my make-up so easily! :) I really want to try that Origins Night Cream I've heard so many great things about it! I wish they'd sell Origins in The Netherlands, it is really hard to get my hands on Origins here! :( Happy New Year gorgeous! :) xx Laura

  4. Not even kidding, with the way you post about Origins, I actually spent 30 minutes at the Origins section in Macy's. I really have my eye on the Vita-Zing moisturizer and Drink up overnight mask because they both seem so nice!

    1. Aw that's so cool to here :) I definitely think the Drink Up Overnight is amazing, but Vita-zing can be oragney on me, so try and test it first would be my advice :)
