Cleansers: Right now I’m removing my makeup with a Nars cleansing oil. It’s ok but nothing to write home about. It gets my makeup off but I find it doesn’t do a brilliant job on my mascara. Drats. Meanwhile, I’ve been liking my Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser a lot. It’s a non-foaming cleanser packed with pink clay, orange blossom and apricot seed powder. It doesn’t leave my skin dry or tight but it’s looking more refined and radiant.
Toner: Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence is gorgeous! I’m really loving it! You can use this throughout the day if you like, as well. It’s got loads of hyaluronic acid in it to help retain moisture and gotu kola extract to tone the skin. I’m totally loving this one.
Serum: My serum du jour is Dr Sebagh Serum Repair. This is full of some seriously high levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen stimulating ingredients. I defy anyone not to see great results after a bottle of this! I’m using it morning and night before my eye cream and moisturiser. It’s certainly helping to keep my poor, old face held together!!!
Eye Cream: I did a post a little while ago on the eye creams I’m using. I’m still on the same ones. I tell you what, the combination of the Dr Sebagh serum and the Bakel Cool Eyes is quite something! I can really feel my eye area tighten up in the mornings when those two go on!!
Moisturiser: In the mornings I’m using my Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturiser. This is a great one for combination skin. It’s a lovely, light texture that gives me the nourishment I need without the oily feeling half way through the day. The sodium hyaluronate locks moisture in whilst willow bark is an anti-inflammatory. It also contains rose and chamomile to give natural sun protection and increase skin elasticity.
In the evenings I’m using my good, old Caudalie Vinexpert Night Infusion Cream. I feel like a lot of people overlook Caudalie as a brand. I think it’s quite exciting. This particular product contains polyphenols from the vine of the grape plant for amazing anti-oxidant levels and a patent called Resveratrol. This is a patent that increases cellular longevity, increases cellular renewal and increases the production of collagen and elastin. It does all of this via the wonderment of grape vines!!! Amazing!!! The tube looks really small but you only need a small amount of this cream. I use a small, pea sized amount.
Facial Oil: Finally, after all of this, I pat some Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex over my face morning and night. I know you’re probably thinking that this all sounds like way too much. However, I do believe in spending more time on your skin so that you don’t need to spend as much time on makeup. It’s all about having a perfected complexion. This oil helps to balance oil production, nourishes and strengthens skin and gives it a lovely protection layer from all the horrors of environmental pollution we face every day. It absorbs really quickly into the skin and doesn’t leave a residue or cause makeup to slide, etc.
I get my Caudalie, Dr Sebagh, Bakel and Dr Brandt from Space NK and for Tata Harper I highly recommend Being Content. It’s one of my favourite stores in London. It’s been way too long since I’ve been there, in fact!!!
