Trying out new skincare is undeniably one of the best perks of blogging. I love skincare. I happily volunteer as guinea pig to test out everything. Limiting myself to a handful of new products a month means I can properly give everything a thorough test and notice any results, good or bad. Yup, there’s some New Skincare On My Shelf and it’s time to report my findings.
Dr Roebuck’s AHA Brightening Mask
So I was lucky enough to win Jasmine’s competition with enough Dr Rosebuck’s skincare to keep me occupied for a while. So much skincare. Instead of getting overwhelmed, I’ve been adding a new product one at a time. First up is the AHA Brightening Mask, which sounds right up my street. It’s packed full of fruit acids to exfoliate the skin and leave the complexion looking brighter and less congested. I’ve added into my twice-weekly multi-masking session, using it as the first step. It’s not super tingly and so wouldn’t irritate or aggravate skin too much. Similar in effect to the REN glycolic mask, but a little gentler.
Emma Hardie Midas Touch Revitalising Eye Serum
Ok, so anything saying midas touch does instantly remind me of Goldmember but I suppose that just means I have a particularly immature sense of humour. This new addition to Emma Hardie’s line-up is anything but a joke, though! Maker of the best cleanser, ever, Emma Hardie’s skincare is consistently superb. The eye serum instantly tightens the eye contour – you can feel it working straight away. Not uncomfortably, but this works excellently to smooth and prep under concealer. It has loads of hyaluronic acid to hydrate as well as omega 3,6,9 and aloe vera; all ingredients working together to make a very effective eye treatment.
Omorovicza Hydra Melting Cleanser
A few posts back, I mentioned how Omorovicza has really really good cleansers. Well, I was right. I’ve been using this hydra melting cleanser as my evening go-to and can only report good things. It feels light but hydrating on the skin, and the texture really does melt away makeup and grime. It starts as a gel on the skin, before turning into an oil once worked into the skin. Once you add water, it breaks down into a light milk. Clever. It feels wonderfully nourishing on the skin, whilst effectively cutting through makeup really quickly. They’ve done it again…
