Two Skincare Products I Can’t Live Without

Today I am talking about my top two favourite skincare products of all time. The first is the Ultra Facial Cream by Kiehl’s. I have been using this product for just under a year now and I won’t be changing my moisturiser any time soon.

Who is it for?

Anyone and everyone can use this product, it is made for all skin types. My skin is combination, it gets oily in places and dry in others. My skin is also sensitive, this cream doesn’t upset it.

Price?

50ml : £24.50

125ml : £45.00

Does it last?

I replace this moisturiser once every 3 months and I use it twice a day. (I buy the 50ml)

Results?

It seems to have calmed my skin, it is free from harsh chemicals or fragrances and doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily, despite the rich creamy texture. I can tell I am using better quality ingredients on my face.

Ingredients?

Antarcticine (Glacial Glycoprotein Extract) – it further helps to protect skin from extremely cold temperatures, facilitating skin’s retention of natural water reserves.

Imperata Cylindrica (Desert Plant Extract) – helps skin to store and retain moisture efficiently – even in the driest weather conditions.

Squalane (Perhydrosqualene or perhydrosqualene vegetal) –  helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple.

Packaging?

I love a luxury face cream but sometimes fancy packaging isn’t practical. This Kiehl’s cream comes in either a 50ml or 125ml plastic container, it is lightweight, clean and small enough to travel with.

 

The second product I can’t live without is Ginzing by Origins. I was gifted this eye cream over Christmas and admittedly I haven’t been using it for long but it’s been a must in my skincare routine recently.

Who is it for?

All skin types. Specifically if you get either puffy, dry or dark under eyes.

Price?

50ml : £25.00

Does it last?

I have been using this product twice a day (morning and evening) every day since Christmas and i’m not even a quarter of the way through.

Results?

Like the name suggests, it ‘zings’ your under eyes awake with its cooling solution. It wakes me up in the morning and de-puffs and brightens my eyes. At night I use it before bed so my eyes look fresher the next morning. Overall I can say I have noticed a change to the darkness of my eye bags.

Ingredients?

Active ingredient are coffee (hence why it wakes you up and lemon peel.

Packaging?

This eye cream comes in a 50ml pot, but don’t be fooled by the small-scale because a little does go a long way! (and is very travel friendly too). The vibrant orange packaging will brighten up any makeup bag.
