Skincare Lately with emma

Fancy a change in your skincare routine? Emma has your skin covered! My last guest post so I hope you enjoy it.

I seem to be obsessed with skincare at the moment and finding the right products for my hormonal, sensitive skin is high on my agenda right now. My skin is always really dehydrated which results in my makeup sticking to any dry patches so I’ve recently been introducing serums into my skincare routine and they’ve been a saviour.

Claudia Louch Botanical Cleansing Lotion* £37.40 here
This cleanser is perfect for me right now as it’s really gentle and a mild foaming cream. It contains natural ingredients such as aloe, cucumber, chamomile and green tea so it smells really fresh! The lotion is so gentle that I’ve been using it morning and night and I’ve noticed my face looks so much brighter. It may seem like an expensive cleanser but the tube is huge at 240ml and you only need to use a tiny amount on each application.

Gallinée La Culture Face Mask and Scrub* £18 here
Although I’ve been loving the Claudia Louch cleanser, I’ve also needed to use a face scrub to get rid of the dead skin. Not only is it a great scrub but I’ve also been using it a few times a week as a mask. Again, this product smells really fresh thanks to its ingredients of Kaolin Clay, Sea Minerals and Vitamin E.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum £22.50 here
For a higher end serum, I’ve been loving Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum. Even though this is a water based serum, it’s still perfect for dry/dehydrated skin and I’m not really sure why it works! It has quite a floral scent but this didn’t affect my newly hormonal, sensitive skin. The serum soaks into the skin within seconds which means you don’t need to wait around to apply your moisturiser then makeup.

L’Oreal Skin Perfection Serum £3.95 here
I’d read so many rave reviews of the L’Oreal Skin Perfection Serum so I had to give in and buy it. The packaging is stunning especially for such a bargain product, I love the bright pink and white ombre look! Although it comes out as a white serum, it quickly blends flawlessly into the skin. It leaves the skin feeling smoother and tighter. My makeup also looks better when applied over the Skin Perfection Serum and a moisturiser as it doesn’t cling to any dry patches thanks to the extra hydration from the serum.Skincare Lately with emma

    Emma, your skincare is fantastic! I don’t really have any favourite skincare products right now, my skin is in a little bit of a rut. So perhaps I’ll pick up the Skin Perfection Serum!
