New Year. New Routine

I know the new year buzz has sort of died down now that we're in February, but I'm still on a 2018 high and I'm here to share with you a few brand spankin' new additions to my skincare routine. I have put these three products to the test for the past couple of weeks and they have become absolute staples!


Retinol is THE ingredient to look for when it comes to anti-aging (although it does comes with a hefty price tag!), but this eye cream was ticking all the boxes with its 4 star reviews and affordability so I did not think twice about buying it! A few key factors as to why I love this is it's lightweight and mostly importantly, it truly works. The hyaluronic acid in this formula really hydrates and plumps the under eye area for a more youthful appearance, and over time it has helped to diminish my fine lines thanks to the retinol. I am utterly amazed at the results so far and if the rest of their products are anything like this eye cream, then I may have just found my ultimate anti-aging skincare routine.


I cannot for the life of me remember the last time I was excited about a cleanser - until I bought this on a whim and now I can't wait to wash my face. It is such a great multi-tasker; it cleanses, purifies and gently exfoliates the skin with these tiny jojoba beads, and the addition of vitamin c helps to brighten up your complexion. The refreshing scent makes it an absolute joy to use, it's fantastic value for money (a huge 350ml bottle) and you only need a pea size amount. My skin always feels super smooth and clean after I use this cleanser and I've found it to really help when I'm having terrible skin days, so this one is a definite re-purchase!


Let me just start off by saying, this stuff was not easy to acquire. My hunt for this exfoliant went on for several months because everybody wanted a piece of it so it was sold out everywhere (and for good reason!). My skin is pretty tough so 5% and 10% AHA's weren't doing much for me so I decided to up the ante with this guy and I can finally understand the hype. As this is such a high concentrated formula, I did notice a tingling sensation during my 10 minute treatment but it wasn't painful or uncomfortable and it didn't cause me any irritation or redness for that matter. I use this about 1-2 times per week and my complexion looks brighter and clearer already so I'm excited to see the long term effects it will have on my skin. Highly recommend grabbing this one if you struggle with problematic skin!

Hope you've had a wonderful 2018 so far!
