We’re on the cusp of a new season and it’s the perfect time to reassess your skincare. Are your products still addressing your skincare needs? Are you looking for more products to add to your regime? We’ve pulled together our favourite skincare products we’ve been trialing to give you some skincare inspo.

 

Boost the hydration in your skin…

If you’re looking for a huge moisture injection into your skincare regime then look no further than Skinceutical’s H.A. Intensifier. This product has to be one of our favourite serums as it gives you an instant boost of hydration to your skin due to the high concentration of pure hyaluronic acid (HA) in the formulation.  HA is found in your skin and helps your skin cells retain moisture and help with skin cell renewal. H.A. Intensifier helps to increase your HA levels and improve the hydration thereby increasing the plumpness and firmness of your skin. As your skin cells become plumper it helps to smooth fine lines and increase the overall smoothness of the skin.

I found that applying this both day and night helped to improve the texture of my skin and helped to smooth out the fine lines that are beginning to show on my forehead. I also found that using this serum meant that my skin never felt dry despite being in an air-conditioned office and helped to maintain that level of hydration during the day. My skin texture also improved as it looked smooth and provided a great base for the application of makeup and other products.  You only need a pea size amount for your face and the serum is absorbed quickly without leaving any residue.

Help improve the brightness of your skin…

Vitamin C is the gift that keeps on giving. For your skin, Vitamin C is known to help with brightness and improve the texture of your skin. Cue La Roche-Posay’s Redermic Vitamin C10 Serum. This delightfully bright orange serum is one of the latest addition to the French brand’s range in Australia and it’s definitely one to add to your regime. The formulation features a high concentration of Vitamin C and salycilic acid that help with skin brightness and texture. For dull looking skin, this serum provided an instant glow to your skin and helped it feel softer and helped the texture of my skin look more even and look radiant.

I applied the serum in the morning and found that the formulation was easily absorbed into the skin. No sticky residue which you can sometimes find in other Vitamin C products and unlike these other products, it didn’t irritate the skin upon application even though the concentration of Vitamin C is high. I have loved adding this product to my daily routine as it has also helped with reducing the appearance of pigmentation of my cheeks. So not only does my skin look brighter but it has meant that I haven’t needed to use high coverage makeup to cover up my pigmentation.

Mask it up…

If you haven’t heard of Glow Recipe, then listen up. This cult K beauty range landed on our shores earlier this year and the must have product, The Watermelon Glow Sleeping mask, lives up to its reputation as a ‘must have’ in your beauty kit. The formulation is a bouncy like gel with a subtle yet lovable watermelon scent. Applied prior to going to sleep, the face mask is formulated with Watermelon extract that is high in amino acid, Hyraluronic Acid and AHAs. It absorbs well into the skin and doesn’t leave a sticky residue on your face which is surprising given the ingredients and formulation. After applying your skin just feels supple and as you sleep it works its magic to help hydrate and gently exfoliate your skin.

 

Waking up you notice a big difference in your skin – it’s bright, feels so smooth and hydrated. I like to wash it with lukewarm water and pat dry your skin with a towel, ready for serum application and makeup.  If you don’t feel comfortable leaving it on overnight, apply and leave for about 15 minutes and wash off. This beautiful mask is also a god send on flights so have one in your kit (you can buy it in a travel size) so you can ensure your skin is hydrated.

Anti-aging help…

Danish skincare brand Beaute Pacifique is growing in popularity for its approach to skincare for helping anti aging and sun-damage. Of its range, the Super3 booster is formulated with highly potent levels of Vitamin A. In fact it has two different forms of Vitamin A, an ingredient known to rejuvenate collagen and elastin in the skin helping to reduce the visible signs of wrinkles and repair sun damaged skin.

 

Texturally the creams feels a bit sticky as you apply it but it absorbs well into the skin without leaving that sticky feeling.  I used it every second night to begin with, due to the potency of the formulation. Applied after the application of a serum, it worked well overnight to help clarify my skin and reduce those pesky fine lines that are beginning to show on my skin. After a few weeks, I upped the usage to every day as my skin became used to the Vitamin A and noticed a much smoother forehead and reduced lines around my eyes. Definitely a great anti-aging product to add to your lineup.

Night time help…

I am a firm believer that you don’t always have to spend a lot on skincare for it to be great for your skin. As long as it works well with your skin and is effective, you might just find it at your local Chemist Warehouse or Priceline. With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to one of my favourite pharmacy purchases, La Roche-Posay’s Toleraine Ultra Nuit. Yes this is the second entry from LRP, but when you find skincare that is super affordable and effective, it’s hard not to share it with others.

I have used a few bottles of this particular night cream and love it because of it’s a night cream that isn’t heavy and it’s easy to apply without leaving any residue on the face.  Designed for those with sensitive skin, I still find it works a treat on my skin. The formulation is lightweight meaning it’s easy to apply to your face and it absorbs quickly into the skin. It doesn’t contain any preservatives, alcohol, fragrance or colorant meaning if you have sensitive skin it would be the perfect night cream for you. The easy pump applicator makes it easy to apply before going to sleep. Also despite the size of the bottle, the cream goes a long way.
