Chloë on skin  34 year old skincare junkie in the UK. Still battling spots, dry skin and an oily t-zone. On a never ending quest for perfect skin.

👍So I've been using this cleanser every day for a couple of weeks now....and I'm really loving it. I was already a fan of the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser but wanted to try this instead of my Neutrogena Gentle Foaming Cleanser. This is just as good as the Neutrogena one at removing all make up and makes a really nice creamy foam. However, what makes it a winner for me is that it's fragrance free!!!! Thank you CeraVe!!!!! @cerave #cerave #cleanser #cleansing #healthyskin #sensitiveskin #skincare #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #clearskin

🔬Who else loves feeling like a geeky scientist with their skincare? 🤓 I'm an absolute obsessive of all things @deciem and the beauty of this brand is it allows you to learn about and tailor specific ingredients especially for your own skin. I can now drop scientific terms like 'niacinamide' and 'granactive retinoid' in conversations. I've never felt so intelligent!

It's a 'less is more' kinda night. And having a couple of days break from Differin Gel to let my skin have a rest. I finally got the @cerave Foaming Cleanser and really liking it so far. Following it up with @hadalabotokyo Premium Lotion and @eucerin Urea Repair Replenishing Face Cream. I love a clean and fully hydrated face! 💦👌 #hadalabo #eucerin #cerave #cleansing #cleanser #moisturising #serum #moisturiser #skincare #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #skincarejunkie #cleanface #makeupremoval #clearskin #healthyskin #sensitiveskin

😱 Let's be honest..... How many of us remember to clean our make up brushes and sponges regularly? I know I forget all the time. 😣 But as soon as I start to get a few spots crop up, and not in the usual hormonal areas (chin and jawline) then I know I've left it too long. Brushes and sponges collect A LOT of bacteria! 🤢 Today was one of those days. I've got 2 new spots on my cheeks, so I've just done a thorough clean of all my tools and now i'm feeling very smug with myself. It really doesn't need to be a chore or take too long. In fact, sometimes I take all my brushes in the shower with me and we just do a mass shampoo sesh all together! Forget all these expensive 'brush cleansers' too. Total waste of your hard earned cash. Just a squirt of baby shampoo and warm water is ALL your brushes need. It'll remove all the product build up and be gentle enough on the bristles. Leave them to air dry (I leave mine overnight) and when you go to apply your make up next, it'll apply like a dream! You'll wander why you always put it off. 😉

🥊It's the battle of the glycolic toners!🥊Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner was my first dabble into chemical exfoliation. I bought it back in 2016 and WOW!!!!! Within a week my skin had changed dramatically. The overall texture was so much smoother, the tone more even and I started to get 'the glow.' So when The Ordinary launched their toner, I grabbed it immediately. Now.... The Ordinary toner has 7% glycolic acid, whereas Mario's has only 2% (Pixi Glow Tonic has 5% fyi). The Ordinary one is quite a bit stronger and because of this I can get a bit of irritation when used daily. But it is very effective and crazy cheap. In fact, I now keep it especially for times when I want a one off stronger treatment. Or..... when I have a spot that needs clearing up. Trust me, this stuff is great on recently picked spots (not that you should be picking!) Just dab some on with a cotton bud a couple of times a day. verdict is....... Mario Badescu on a daily basis and The Ordinary for spot treating. 🏅😁

My first #texturetuesday Who else loves this peel??? It's super cheap and really effective. you look pretty scary covered in blood red solution..... But within minutes you wash it off and have baby soft smooth skin. I'm a total convert to chemical exfoliation as opposed to harsh scrubs. Don't be put off by the terms 'peel' or 'acid.' Chemical exfoliation is actually far more gentle than going crazy at your face with a brush or scratchy pumice.

🎉WOO HOOOOOO! Thanks everyone!

🚨HOLY GRAIL ALERT!🚨 This face cream has been my all time favourite for years. It NEVER lets me down. I swear I've gotten through 20 tubes of the stuff! I searched for ages while on Roaccutane for a moisturiser that was heavy duty for my parched flaky complexion, but also still light and quick absorbing. I wanted zero fragrance and no nasty extra ingredients either. Low and behold I came across Eucerin Urea Repair Face Cream (previously Eucerin 5% Urea Replenishing Face Cream). This stuff is the nuts!!!! For a very reasonable price it is, in my opinion, such a high quality moisturiser. The ingredients are fantastic and it keeps your skin hydrated ALL day. It works brilliantly under make up and plays well with all my other skincare. I will continue to buy this FOREVER.
Anyone else use it? I highly recommend you do!

🙁 Not going to lie. I was pretty unimpressed with this. Considering Mario Badescu make some of my all time holy grail items (more on those later...) I was surprised that this one was rather a let down. I bought this before my CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, when I was after something non foaming and super gentle. But this just didn't get all my make up off. Even when I wasn't wearing much. Plus, it has some pesky fragrance in, which I prefer to avoid. Anyone else used this? Or any other Mario Badescu cleansers? I hear the Enzyme Cleansing Gel is good.

💚 This was a great little buy from Dr Jart+! If you're skin is irritated and red, or you suffer from rosacea, this is a life saver. It's a thick pale green cream in the jar, but once applied to skin it transforms to  your own skin tone. It is seriously MAGIC! On weekends i just like to apply a few dots of this on over my face, blend out...and that's it! It evens your complexion brilliantly. Who else uses this in place of foundation?

😁Another empty cleanser!!!! Anyone else love this product as much as I do?! 👌 This was my first ever CeraVe purchase and it's been bloody marvellous! So gentle and kind to skin, yet does a thorough job of removing a full face of make up. I tend to use it as my second cleanse in the evening. I'd read so many positive reviews on this cleanser, so was thrilled to see it finally stocked in the UK. Will definitely be repurchasing this again. ✔

So I've been reading loads lately about oil cleansing and how it's still a great option for those woth oily or acne prone skin types. My fave vlogger, @drdrayzday has mentioned this Hada Labo Oil Cleanser a few times so i'm giving it a go. 🤔 But..... i'm still not sure i've got the hang of it yet. I always DOUBLE cleanse in the evening. So i'm using this oil cleanser first, then following it with my CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser. The oil consistency feels so weird and alien to me! It feels like i'm making my skin dirtier as all my make up and the oil emulsifies on my face.....does anyone else feel like this? I can't wait to use my CeraVe cleanser to get rid of the oily dirty feeling. Am i doing it wrong? Help! 😟
