With our wedding only months away, I really wanted to start on a good skincare routine, as I am no expert and had no idea where to start in the skincare mind field.

I was absolutely blown away by all your skincare advice, thank you, it was all very much appreciated! In order to take time to decide where (and what products) I was going to spend my money on, I did some further research. I wanted to try products to help with my skin in general and specifically my pores. I have picked a ‘top 10’ of products, which I have been using and loving over the last couple of months. These include a few I have used for a while and love and others I have since bought, tried and can highly recommend.

In order to help, at the bottom of this blog, I have provided a list of all the top products recommended, some of which I do want to buy and try out. If you know of any others please let me know.

Bobbi Brown Skin Nourish
Aside from the fact this smells amazing, this acts like a nourish face mask, you only need a small amount on an evening and I found this has got rid of any dry patches I used to get.

Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil
I have been using this a couple of months and I have found this is the only product I have found removes my entire make up, without drying my skin. 

Bobbi Brown – Hydrating Eye Cream
I have been using this for months and I love it for soothing, eradicating dry skin and making my concealer more flawless, however, next time I think I am going to buy the Extra Eye Repair Cream, as this is meant to help with puffiness, dark circles and fine lines.


Pixi Glow Tonic
This contains glycolic which breaks down the bond between dead skin cells and makes exfoliation easier.

Origins ‘out of trouble 10-minute mask’
I’m told this is amazing for clearing up spots, working overnight! I have bought this but not had the chance to try this, but I will of course feedback on this but will update when I get chance.

The Ordinary Niacinamide
This is amazing for clearing spots and after 10 days of use I have noticed a difference in my skin and it feels a lot brighter too!

The Ordinary Rosehip Oil
I haven’t started using this yet, but I am told this is amazing for tightening pores; if you have open pores like myself.
