2015: Skincare

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

2015 is almost over and I thought I could finally share my favorite products and things that I’ve been using since start of the year. So expect a marathon of blog posts from now until end of year! The marathon will start with skincare routine.

Before I tell you about the products I’ve been using I must tell you a little bit about my skin. It was oily and acne prone and for that reason I went on Roaccutane to calm it down as I was fed up with constantly breaking out on my chin so I just decided to go on roaccutane and I’m so happy I did, thank God now my skin is all cleared out and it has never been better! Thank God.

The products I will mention are helping my skin stay hydrated, moisturized and soft. However, these products are not clearing out products, they will not clear out acne or eliminate breakouts. After roaccutane my skin became pretty normal and less, less oily.

Step 1:Filorga Cleansing Foam (Day & Night)
Step2: Sunday riley Good genes treatment (Day)
Step 3: Trish McEvoy’s Beauty Booster Serum(Day&Night)
Step 4: Lush Skin’s Shangri La Facial Moisturizer (Day&Night)

Step 1:Filorga Cleansing Foam (Day & Night)
My dermatologist prescribed this cleanser for me. I’ve been using it since march till early December. It’s been so good to me. Did not break me out, kept my skin clean, removed my makeup (not that well but did a decent job). I loved it, the entire time I’ve used it, until recently I felt like my skin started to get a bit too dry.. cold weather and a foam cleanser during winter isn’t the greatest choice to go for, so just last week I bought a new cleanser. I’ve been using Filorga Cleansing Foam all year long & haven’t had a chance to fully test the new one for it to be in this post.

Step2: Sunday riley Good genes treatment (Day)
I love this so much! I only use it during the day as I feel it wakes my skin up! It’s supposed to help your skin get rid of any blemishes.

Step 3: Trish McEvoy’s Beauty Booster Serum(Day&Night)
This is my second emptied up bottle! Such a nice product! I’m not that great with describing what skincare products do to my skin but what I could say about this one is that it makes you soft. Soft like a baby. And also it has anti aging qualities so that’s a plus!

Step 4: Lush Skin’s Shangri La Facial Moisturizer (Day&Night)
All moisturizers break me out. ALL. except this one!! Beginning of the year I’ve been actually using  Aesop Oil Free Facial Hydrating Serum which is also fantastic and a great substitute for cream moisturizers if they break you out but I ran out of it quite quickly since I was on roaccutane and needed constant hydration. So I decided to try out lush’s moisturizer , so glad I did! AMAZING moisturizer and does not break me out.

Step 5: Fresh Sugar Lip treatment
The best lip balm no doubt, no question. Go get it. You’ll pray for me.

You’re probably wondering why I don’t have an eye serum in here, because all the ones I’ve tried suck, suck, suck and only make my eyes worse and puffier! I just stopped using my eye cream 3 weeks ago and noticed a huge difference! My under eye area is actually way better!!! I simply hate eye creams. They only make things worse!

That’s my 2015 skincare routine xx
