After being discharged from hospital (huzzah!) I realised that I was going to have to switch up my skincare routine a little for the short term. Having two broken legs means I can't reach the sink and things properly. I am currently washing my face in a Tupperware bowl of warm water (living the high life, clearly) but I've cut down my skincare routine quite dramatically as I've found it to be a little difficult. I'm still using a lot of the products I was using previously but I've cut out a few seemingly unnecessary steps and thrown in a few time saving products.
People for Plants' Kakadu Plum, Calendula and Chamomile Eye Cream* landed on my door step a week and a half ago and, given that I can't reach my Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, I decided to give it a shot. So far I'm really impressed with it. It does a great job of hydrating the under eye area without irritating it and it's really gentle and lightweight.
I've been breaking out a little more than normal because I'm not using as many tailored products as I was previously but I've found the Aesop Oil Free Facial Hydrating Serum to be really great at healing and calming breakouts before they turn into something big and nasty. It's also really lightweight so I have found myself using this product morning and evening.
I don't know what it is but my skin's been feeling quite congested lately and my Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Scrub* has been a lifesaver. This is one of the first products I've tried from Clearasil and I must admit, I'm pretty impressed with it. It's a manual exfoliant that's gentle enough to use daily (though I tend to use it every second day) and I've found that it's really improved the texture of my skin. It also gives my skin a really great deep cleanse and I feel like my the products I use on top absorb quicker. It's also taken care of a few pesky black heads too!
Finally, it's not a skincare post without a spot treatment and I am head over heels for Murad's Blemish Spot Treatment! This is one of the best spot treatments I've ever tried (if not the best) and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I normally find that spot treatments are ineffective on blind pimples however I used this bad boy on one I felt coming up on my chin and it was gone in the morning. It's love!
