Testing Drugstore Skincare

0 comments

After posting my morning/evening skincare routine I got loads of requests to do more skincare related blogposts and seeing as I am trying new skincare at the moment I'm taking the opportunity to let you all know my thoughts on them and if they're worth purchasing.



Garnier Micellar Gel Wash
I saw this being promoted in Boots a few weeks about and picked it up because I love both the Garnier Micellar Water and Oil Infused version of the cleansing water. I enjoy using gel based cleansers because its easier to use in the shower which is where I usually do all my skincare, I used this with my favourite skincare device which is the Magnitone brush - find the review here. This cleanser did not work at all for me, I came out the shower and whilst toning my face I found that there was still a significant amount make up left which was so disappointing because I had high hopes, even whilst using it I felt like my skin wasn't getting squeaky clean like it usually does - I think I'll stick to the original Micellar Cleansing Water, its truly the best!

NIP + FAB Glycollic Scrub Fix
I'm onto my third tube of this product, its made the biggest difference to my skincare recently and I cannot get enough of it! The scrub itself has beneficial ingredients that retextures, brightens and really exfoliates the skin. The scrub is super fine but creamy on the skin, after using this my skin has been extra soft and clear so I recommend this highly, for those of you that have drier skin I'd recommend using it twice a week to avoid your skin getting irritated. Overall this has done wonders to my clogged pores and my slightly blemish-prone skin at the moment.

Pure Aloe Vera Gel 
I've been suffering with loads of under the skin bumps (pimples) scarring from spots and dry skin again so I googled what would help towards fading the scars and also in general for healing my dry skin and Aloe Vera was a very popular suggestion. I purchased mine from Holland & Barrett and have been using it religiously every night, I just pop some onto the effected areas and let it dry in, it tightens the area without making it feel dry and I have noticed that the bumps under the skin on my forehead have reduced a lot! You can use Aloe Vera Gel to make loads of different diy face masks at home too, I'm excited to try some out soon and get back to you all.

B. Hyaluronic Acid Spritz
I love using this before anything goes on top of my skin that includes any skincare or make up, it soothes my skin and has such a refreshing scent to it. This facial spray also claims that it has 12 hours of moisture which I can't say is true as I have very dry skin at the moment, but it definitely does keep my skin nice and hydrated for a good hour or two. I like to keep one in my bag as the bottle is slim and convenient for when I need a touch up during the day.

Garnier Moisture Bomb Day Cream
This moisturiser feels amazing on the skin and definitely lives up to the name of it being a 'bomb of moisture'. This instantly adds hydration to the skin, and what the best part is that it doesn't leave that 'sticky' feeling either after its settled in. I usually avoid drugstore moisturisers because I have used one in the past that has made my skin break out but this one is a 10/10 for me, if you have very dry skin I highly recommend this.

NIP + FAB Cleansing Pads
Everyone and their mum raves about the NIP + FAB cleansing pads - there are three types you can get one is the extreme night pads and the other exfoliating cleansing pad. The one that I have is the Dragons Blood Fix Cleansing Pads, I purchased this soley because I have been using the Dragons Blood Plumping Serum so I wanted to pair the two together in order to see best results obviously, I have loved using this every other day to deeply cleanse my skin. Its enriched with salicylic and hyaluronic which makes the skin look more plump and has a lasting effect of hydration, the only down side to this was that I found them to be very very wet in texture, but once it dries its perfectly fine and leaves my skin feeling smooth.
