Hello everyone! I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been trying to customize this blog with a new theme and it’s been a bit hard, but I think it’s been worth it in the end! In this post, I bring to you a skincare haul, as you can read by the title, of things I have recently bought to take care of my skin during these hard times! 💅🏼💆🏽‍♀️🧖🏽‍♀️

Now that I have the time, (because we all should be staying home) I’ve been able to do some research on what products to purchase with the best ingredients for the skin, and I’m going to incorporate all of these to my new routine, which I’ll be posting on this blog as soon as I’ve perfected it! Check out 15 skincare mistakes you should avoid if you want better skin.

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

Cleanses, hydrates & helps restore the protective skin barrier.

13,50€ (236ml) on Amazon.es

$15.95 (16 Fl Oz) on Amazon.com

£9.50 on Amazon.co.uk

During my research, I came across this brand many times, and I was finally convinced when I saw the price of most of the products this brand sells! Not only the price but mainly the ingredient list and how soft people have claimed it is on the skin. Apparently, it doesn’t dry out the skin while washing away makeup, dirt, oil and any unwanted business on the face. I think I will probably add this to my nighttime routine.

CeraVe Moisturising Lotion

Moisturizes and helps restore the protective skin barrier.

16,02€ on Amazon.es

$22.28 on Amazon.com

£9.50 on Amazon.co.uk

This one goes hand in hand with the Hydrating Cleanser, and again, the price was too good to not try this product out. I decided to get the smaller bottles as I always do if I can. I think it’s a smart thing to do, that way if you end up not liking the product you won’t waste product and you can finish it up faster (I try finishing my products to create less waste unless they are harmful to my skin of course!).

This is the daily moisturizer, it’s a lighter version of their Moisturising Cream, si it’s perfect for the face. The main thing I wanted, was to find a good combination of products o create a gentle routine for sensitive skin, with good ingredients and no Perfume. It’s good for combination, normal or reactive skin. If you want to learn more about this product and other CeraVe moisturizers, I highly recommend reading this post by Simple Skincare Science.

Ducray Sensinol Shampoo

Physio-protective treatment shampoo for sensitive scalps.

15,50€ on Amazon.es

$18.08 on Care To Beauty

£16.04 on Amazon.co.uk

For many years I’ve had a flakey sensitive scalp, it has always been annoying but I had never been interested in researching for good products for my hair. I never thought that maybe the shampoos I was using could actually be the cause of this itchy scalp, as It’s possible that my scalp is sensitive and is reacting to many ingredients.

I have tried using Sulfate-free products, but I have never tried using fragrance-free. This one does contain SLS (Sodium Laureth Sulfate) but it’s Fragrance-free, Paraben-free, Colorant-free & Alcohol-free, so I’d like to give it a try see if it calms my scalp down a bit. They have a similar product made for dry itchy scalps, but that one does contain fragrance, so of course, I didn’t buy it.

Xhekpon Facial Creme

Face, neck and cleavage skincare.

9.80€ on Amazon.es

$9.99 on Amazon.com

£12.95 on Amazon.co.uk

Okay, so this one wasn’t on my list of things I wanted to buy, but when I was browsing through the website I bought these products from, I came across this creme which had surprisingly very good reviews and it was one of the most bought creams of the whole site.

I say surprisingly because I’ve never heard of the brand before and I couldn’t believe it was only 9.80€ (what?!). It’s a cream meant to used for anti-ageing and will give luminosity and a better texture to the skin. My intent is to use it in the morning before I apply my daily sunscreen and then my makeup!

Avène SPF50+ Very High Protection Cream

Very high sun protection for dry sensitive skin on the face. Rich and moisturizing texture to nourish the skin. Extremely broad-spectrum UVB-UVA protection. Photostable.

17,49€ on Promofarma.com

Special Price $18.68 on Care to Beauty

£16.50 on Boots.com

Last but not least, SPF! Protecting the skin from the sun is one of the most important steps in one’s skincare routine, as prolonged sun exposure can harm the skin massively! During this quarantine, I’ve been spending some time in the sun working out and doing yoga, and I’ve been applying sunscreen that my boyfriend has at his house, but I wanted to buy this one as I love this brand and it’s very gentle on the skin of the face.

That is all guys! Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed, I will certainly write more posts about skincare in the future, I’m no expert but I do have a passion for it! Don’t forget to comment, like and follow me for more posts like these!
