SKINCARE ON TRIAL + MINI REVIEWS

24 Sep 2017




After buying and testing a few new skincare products recently, I thought I'd share my thoughts with you. 

SUPERDRUG NATURALLY RADIANT HOT CLOTH CLEANSER 

After hearing comparisons to the Liz Earle Cleanser which isn't exactly in my price range, I thought I'd pick this up. This has made my skin feel smoother and hasn't caused any breakouts. While I wouldn't say it's one for helping breakouts, it has kept my spots at bay and I haven't had any major problems even around the time of the month. This feels like a much more luxurious product than what I'm paying for and so I definitely feel I'm getting my money's worth with it and it's one I'd recommend for anyone.

SUPERDRUG NATURALLY RADIANT DAY CREAM FOR NORMAL/DRY SKIN

What I liked, straight off the bat, was in the shop they had the type I picked up but also a variation for normal/oily skin which is great to see they're covering all bases. Being paired with or without the cleanser, this a fabulous and affordable daily moisturiser that creates a great, hydrated base for my make-up. It reminds me of old moisturisers I'd reach for such as the Olay moisturiser or the Nivea moisturiser for dry skin; I'm happy I've finally found a cruelty-free moisturiser that works as well, if not better, than one's I've used in the past. While the smell is a strong one, it doesn't have an effect on my skin's sensitivity and isn't a smell I hate. This is definitely one I'll buy again as being another inexpensive product almost feels luxury on the skin. 

THE ORDINARY AZELIAC ACID SUSPENSION 10%

This claims to brighten the skin as the main aim for this product however it was my friend who had heard it made a good primer. Sadly, this has been my least favourite of the products mentioned in this post. While I can see why it would make a good primer and does leave my skin feeling smooth, it almost feels chalky in texture once dries as well as dehydrated and tight. This isn't one I'll be buying again but I'll still make sure I get my use out of it and I'd suggest maybe giving it ago if you have a more oily skin type. 

THE ORDINARY HIGH-ADHERENCE SILICONE PRIMER

The word silicone around beauty is something that would usually make me run a mile. It gives me flashbacks of failed primers that just dry and ball up on my face. However, after reading a few reviews saying this was nothing  like silicone and, with it being fairly inexpensive I thought I'd give it a go and so far so good! I agree, it's not like other 'silicone' primers I've used before- with a more creamy texture and not really silicone feeling at all, it creates a great smoothing effect for make-up to apply over. If this carries on living up to my expectations, this will be a primer I'll be repurchasing in the future. 

So there's a few short reviews of some skincare products I have had on trial in my skincare routine. Let me know if you like the idea of me doing more mini reviews like this in the future! 
Have you tried any of these products before?
Hope you're doing great,
