3 Skincare Products YOU need in your life

Earlier this year, I realised that I needed to get my sh*t together when it came to my skin and started to fall in love with skincare again

I've always been a huge fan of skincare. 
I love learning about it.
I love trying out new products.
And, I love coming across incredible products that I absolutely LOVE, to add to my holy grail list. 

The following products are exactly that.

3 Skincare Products I am LOVING Right Now, that YOU Need in Your Life.

Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturising Cleanser

I was introduced to this cleanser by the lovely Caroline Hirons. She recommended it in her book, plus I saw a lot of people in her skincare group talking about it so I thought I'd give it a try. At £34, it was quite pricey compared to what I'd usually spend on a cleanser, but it was a good month so I thought I'd treat myself! ;) I bought this back in March, and 6 months later I've just finished it, and that's using it twice a day every single day. So I'd say it's well worth the money!

So, Kate describes it as 'a gentle daily face wash that's formulated to cleanse and soothe without tightness or irritation. It's enhanced, non-foaming, creamy formula removes makeup, dirt, oil and impurities while maintaining skin's radiance and essential moisture.' and I concur, it does exactly that! 

I used this cleanser every morning, and every evening as a second cleanse. It never left my skin feeling dry or tight like many other cleansers have in the past, it is really creamy and comfortable to use, really moisturising and leaves my skin feeling super clean

This cleanser was inspired by Kate's personal experiences with goats milk and healing skin, and along with Manuka honey and jojoba and avocado oils, it melts away any dirt left from my first cleanse while gently but effectively cleansing my skin leaving it feeling super soft.

This is definitely my new favourite cleanser, well worth the price tag in my opinion and I'll definitely be purchasing again soon. 

Hada Labo Anti Ageing Day Cream

Now, I'm a big fan of Hada Labo, not only because it's a fantastic brand of great skincare, but also hugely affordable. It's now becoming more widely available in stores such as Superdrug as well as Amazon too. And the Day Cream is something I've repurchased over and over so it had to feature in my top 3 today. 

Hada Labo is Japan's best selling skincare brand that grew popular online thanks to beauty bloggers and influencers, leading to many of their products being reformulated for use here in the UK.  It has a huge following with skincare fans due to its ability to boost hydration with its unique formula containing up to FOUR types of hyaluronic acid. 

Along with the 4 sizes of hyaluronic acid, the Day Cream also contains retinol and collagen, 3 of my favourite ingredients when it comes to my skincare, which is probably why I repurchase this stuff time and time again. Its gel like creamy formula glides onto my skin and absorbs well leaving the perfect base for my makeup. My skin looks and feels healthy, comfortable and hydrated, and at less than £19 for a pot, I don't think I'll stop repurchasing any time soon.

Dr Jart Ceramidin Cream Mist

It was only earlier this year that I started introducing a mist into my skincare routine. It's all about  hydration, ladies! Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! I've tried a few this year, but my favourite has to be this one, packed full of ceramides which encourages hydration, enhances water retention and strengthens the skins barrier by preventing water loss. 

Dr Jart is a super popular Korean skincare brand who's products are known for its proprietary ingredient complexes. You may know Dr Jart for it's famous Cryo Rubber Masks, their Cicapair 'Tiger Grass' range, or their best selling Ceramidin range, with, as mentioned above, its blend of 5 ceramides which deeply moisturise and help strengthen the moisture barrier.  

I used this during lockdown, and my skin was looking the healthiest it's looked in a long time! My skin is usually combination skin, with drier skin on my cheeks. Ceramidin provides an intense moisture boost and with a quick spray of the Cream Mist after cleansing, or at any point I felt my skin needed a quick spritz, it immediately felt hydrated, refreshed and comfortable

Many of the others I've used have been water based, whereas this is cream based which made a huge difference. I'll definitely be repurchasing once my current mist is on empty. It's also a fantastic price, at just £13 for 50ml.

What about you? 

What are your current favourite skincare products? 

Which products are you repurchasing over and over just lately? 

Are there any that should accidentally fall into my Cult Beauty basket? ;)
