I mentioned a couple posts back about starting a skincare ‘mission’ and really getting my skin in tip-top condition before the end of lockdown. Well, I ordered a few bits from Feel Unique, and they arrived today so I thought I would share what I got.
I have a few products from The Ordinary already, but I thought I would try The Inkey List & Paula’s Choice as I have heard some great things about both brands. I also will always try to opt for skincare products that don’t have fragrance, as I do have sensitive skin, and I don’t tend to break out with fragrance-free products.
The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors + HA – £4.90 for 30ml
Contains Amino Acids, Dermal Lipids & Hyaluronic Acid
I currently use the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo SPF 30 both day & night, and wanted a moisturiser that was hydrating for night use, as I don’t really see the need in using the LR-P as it quite pricey (for me, especially during these times) and of course when sleeping the sun won’t be getting to me. It seems to have quite good reviews, but of course once I’ve been using this in my routine for a little while, I will be doing a review on it myself, so keep an eye out for that!
The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% – £5.00 for 30ml
Now, I have heard so many good things about Niacinamide recently, and the effects it has on your skin, and so of course I had to try this little guy out. I generally have oily skin, and it’s meant to be great with acne scars (which I have a plenty) so I am definitely looking forward to trying this out and of course, letting you know how it goes for me.
The INKEY List Q10 Serum – £4.99 for 30ml
A powerful antioxidant that protects against skin damage caused by environmental stressors
Again, a product I have heard a lot of good things about. Now, I do also have fine lines on my forehead and around my eyes (I know I’m only 22 but I was terrible with sunscreen so I’m paying the price now) so I am hoping that this will start to help with that as well. You’ll just have to find out when I do a review.
Paula’s Choice Resist Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser – £22.00 for 190ml
Creamy foaming face wash will leave skin feeling refreshed, soft and smooth
Now, first I would like to say, my expectations for this are definitely higher than anything else I have purchased. This is mainly due to the price point. Now, I know £22 for a cleanser isn’t that bad, but I don’t tend to spend too much money on my skincare, so this is definitely more of a ‘splurge’ (is that sad? haha oh well) for me. Now, I do find with a lot of cleansers that they dry out my skin a lot, so I am hoping that with the hydrating components of this cleanser, that it doesn’t do so. I also badly needed a cleanser as I have been using the Garnier Soothing Botanical Cleansing Milk (with Rose Water) which is a good cleanser, but only if I’m not wearing makeup, as it really does not remove it all even if I use tonnes… but hopefully PC won’t let me down!
If you have tried any of these products, do let me know what your thoughts are in the comments.
