For years I have struggled. Years. I've always had dry skin, I spent a fortune trying to find products that would work. I am talking brands like Dior, Clinique, Lancome, Estee Lauder, Clarins, Dermalogica etc... All counter staff gave me their 'word' that these products would sort my skin out. Some of them did, but not for long. My skin would just revert back to it's old ways.
Lately it's gotten to the stage where my foundation is starting to look ridiculous on my face. To be honest, it's driving me insane. I had to take action, but what could I do? I had already spent way more than any person could deem reasonable. So, I figured I'd get back to basics... the crazy thing is, these seem to be making more progress with sorting my skin out than any of the more expensive brands.
So, to remove my makeup, I use the Soap and Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser. This comes with a muslin cloth, I use this once to remove makeup and then a second time to make sure my skin is squeaky clean.
Next in my routine is Peaches and Clean... I adore this, and I genuinely notice a major difference when I don't use it. I give my face a good coating of this, I leave it on for about a minute and then remove with cotton pads. It smells amazing, although nothing like peaches...
As a dry skin gal, toner is always tricky, I love the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic because is alcohol free, very gentle and it does the job perfectly.
Next I apply the S&G Make Yourself Youthful Serum, this smells amazing, it takes a while to sink in but it leaves my skin silky soft and moisturised.
This is Soap & Glory's 21 day collagen treatment 'Wish Upon a Jar'. I'm a bit of a cheater with how I use this cream. It's just so luxurious and thick, it's exactly what my skin needs. I use it all the time and it seems to be the only thing that can sort out my dry patches.
This is S&G's eye gel, fantastic for me but i have heard mixed reviews. It feels like it does the little baggies under my eyes the world of good, and it sinks in super quick.
I have two face mask's I alternate between every week...
Liz Earles 'Brightening Treatment Mask' is the most amazing product to get rid of dry skin. You know how sometimes when you are sick or just run down, you get that dead grey skin look, the really attractive one?! Well this is what sorts it. It smells delicious and it really works. I cant count how many times this has given me the confidence to step outside the front door when I've felt like a walking corpse!
This one is a pore minimiser and remover of all those horrible little lurker spots that pop up at the worst possible moments 'No Clogs Allowed' this is a self heating mask and it comes with smoothing sponges, it works wonders at keeps breakouts a bay and honestly I cant praise it enough.
So that's it ladies!
Let me know if you've tried any of these.

Do you have to spend a fortune to get the perfect skin?
