Favourite Products of 2018 – Skincare.

Hey there! so i really wanted to do a post on my favourite products from 2018, i was just going to do makeup but then i thought i had loved skincare so much i didn’t really wanna do that,so ive split it off into two! in a few days you will get my post about my favourite makeup from this year, but this one is all about my favourite skincare. Its gonna be a long post, so lets get too it!

1st cleanse – The body shop scumptuous camomile cleansing butter.

This was a toss up for me because i have gone between 3 the whole year, but i think this cleansing butter wins for me. Its not greasy and it removes easily but it works so well, removing makeup or not!,I adore this cleansing balm, and i dont think that will change any time soon!

2nd cleanse/morning cleanse – Soap & glory peaches & clean deep cleansing milk.

This was extremely easy for me, i had a few years ago used and loved it but had moved on to different things. Im so glad i went back to it this year as i do not plan to have it leave my life again! its not drying, but it has a bit of a zing to it, its perfect for me.

Scrub – Loreal paris smooth sugar glow grape face and lip scrub. (Not shown).

I am so sad that i dont currently have this but im waiting to see it on offer! these came out this year, and ive tried the kiwi and grapefruit one and the grapefruit one is the best by far. I always thought that sugar scrubs would be too much for my face but actually they work really well and i loved how smooth this made my skin feel.

Face mask – Garnier pure active gel matcha detox green tea face mask.

This really has been the year of the face mask for me, i really like using them! i found this garnier face mask early on in the year and im really glad i did. Its clay based, but very cooling and not drying at all, its a really nice refreshing clay mask that makes your skin feel smooth and clean.

Acid – Revolution lactic acid & hyaluronic acid serum.

This was a tough choice to be honest, because i didn’t use much acid this year! ive only just started using acid again in its traditional toner form over the past few weeks. But i then remembered that i used this serum til it is basically empty and it is acid! i really like how gentle this is, my skin this has gotten slightly drier and more sensitive this year (im growing up, eek!) and even though this is helping at resurfacing, its also hydrating and that helps a lot.

hydrating spray – B. hydrated hyaluronic acid spritz. 

This was the year that i got very into hydrating sprays and this was the spray that started it! over the summer and the awful heatwave, i would cleanse, spray a lot of this then use a light gel and call it a day and this was enough hydration! i really enjoy this, its not needed of course, but its a really nice extra level of hydration.

Serum – Hyaluronic acid.

So im kinda cheating here because i haven’t got a brand for this has ive used a few over the year, but my no1 serum “thing” for sure has been hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid has found its mainstream fame this year, and theres good reason why. I found it a really nice, easy serum adding light hydration that really felt like it worked, i need to get some more, soon!


Oil – Revolution skin nourishing CBD oil.

Revolution brought out there own skincare range this year, and of course i was all over it! CBD oil hit the headlines a lot this year but i haven’t really seen it much in skincare, though i dont know why! this is really lovely, super hydrating and gentle, a staple for my night time skincare.



Day cream – loreal paris hydra genius aloe moisturiser.

I have really struggled finding a day cream that i like this year much at all, but the one i enjoyed the most was for sure the loreal pure genius, gel textures are for sure the way to go and i think i may pick up some more of this soon!

Night cream – Soap & glory speed plump overnight moisture mousse.

Again just like the peaches & clean this is something ive loved and used in the past but had wondered off to other things. I am so glad i got back to it! its a lovely, quite rich but not heavy moose.

So there you have it! my favourite skincare of 2018, what was some of yours? let me know!
