TOP PRODUCTS OF 2013: Skincare

Over the past twelve months I've had the opportunity to test a lot of products; some were good, some were average and some were truly remarkable. I've compiled a list of make up, hair care, skin care and miscellaneous beauty favourites of 2013, the stand out products that have really surpassed everything else in my collection. Today I'm here to share the second instalment with you, the skincare bits! To read about what make up I loved in 2013, click here
Up until recently the only product I would use to remove my make up was the MAC Cleanse Off Oil. I thought I would hate using an oil on my face period, let alone to remove my make up, but it really works! To remove my eye make up, however, I'll use the Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye & Lip Makeup Remover. This dual phase eye make up remover is one of the only ones that doesn't break me out, making it an automatic winner in my books. It also works really well and is very affordable. 

For actual skincare, Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant revolutionised my skincare routine and changed the texture of my skin completely. This product is gentle enough to be used daily and is so effective. I think the one featured above is my fourth bottle. Finally, I wouldn't be a beauty blogger if I didn't mention La Roche Posay's Effaclar Duo. I don't quite know what it is about it that makes it soo lovely, but it sure is nice! I use it as my nighttime moisturiser and I find that's more than enough moisture. My Mum picked up the first tube of this when in France in July but I've since repurchased it at Priceline. 

What have been your skincare savours this year?


  1. Was the formulation of Effaclar Duo from Priceline the same as the one you had from France? I've just heard a few people say its not the same and its better to actually get it from France for the real deal. But I have no idea if thats true or not...

  2. i really want to try the MAC cleanse off oil! xx
