It’s Friday….but that’s not the only thing to be happy about. How about a brand new, just-launched, extra gentle facial cleanser and makeup remover by the same awesome French skincare brand behind the award winning Sensibio H2O micellar water?! Well, the lovely people at @biodermauk let me loose with their new Sensibio Mild Cleansing Foaming Gel and I can confirm that I absolutely love it. It’s designed with sensitive skin in mind and is free of soap, fragrance, parabens and SLS. Perfect for skin that is dry and irritable from treatment or due to cold and windy weather conditions. The pink packaging is also very cute and feminine and it already looks at home in my bathroom.
I picked up this Gentle Toning Lotion from @avene_uki at the airport on the way to Cape Town in January having managed to forget my usual cleanser and micellar water at home. My skin was dry and peeling from the cold weather over Christmas, as it tends to every year around that time, and I spent twenty minutes (or maybe longer) in @bootsuk picking up and putting back every single #beauty product on the shelf before settling on this and it’s accompanying cleanser. Glad I did too! My skin has been better than ever this winter – smooth and hydrated – and I’m just about to buy myself a new bottle.
Okay. So the packaging isn’t strictly pink, but the writing definitely is! @garnieruk PureActive Sensitive Anti-Blemish Tonic is another recent find and I’m pretty excited about it! Unlike most skincare products designed for breakouts, this one is also suitable for sensitive skin which is a big plus. Salicylic acid unblocks pores and provides exfoliation, witch hazel soothes and repairs and the gorgeous hydrating gel consistency means that it doesn’t dry my skin out. It smells really fresh, cucumber-y and delicious too. Despite it’s very affordable drugstore price tag, it doesn’t look out of place amongst all the high end products on my bathroom shelf (…shelves) so I think it’s a keeper.
