2012 Favourites - Skin and Body products

December 22, 2012
Skincare

1. Organic Surge Daily Care Face Wash // 2.  Original Source Orange & Cinnamon Shower Gel // 3. Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator // 4. Bioderma Crealine H20 // 5. Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre // 6. Flannels/face cloths // 7. Jergens Original Beauty Lotion // 8. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish


I really like looking back at the year and thinking about the products that have really stood out. Some of the above have been favourites for some time now and others are more recent, fabulous finds. There are three  cleansers/make-up removers that have really stood out to me with the first being my trusty Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. I always go back to this cleanser and really like using it with a face flannel. I have enjoyed using their special edition Rose and Lavender version but I think the original is still my favourite. Bioderma Crealine H2O is my favourite ever make-up remover and I use it every night to remove eye make-up. My Mum is also a convert although her bottles don't go down half as quickly as mine! Finally, the Organic Surge face wash is brilliant- it has just been given an EcoCert Certification (basically means it is a environmentally friendly cosmetic product) which is great and I find it so refreshing and hydrating. 

I have tried some fantastic moisturisers this year (Liz Earle SuperSkin and Organic Surge Blissful daily moisturiser are other stand-outs) but Embryolisse has to be my winner. It's such a simple but effect product and I love how it feels on my skin. I need to buy a big old tube of this! Favourite exfoliator is another Liz Earle product- their gentle face exfoliator. This feels so gentle on my skin but does the job of making it lovely and smooth. I use it twice a week.
 
The washcloths stand out amongst the lotions and potions- I used to use muslin cloths, and still do from time to time but after Caroline Hirons' talked about using a face flannel on her blog I decided to buy two packs from Primark (so cheap!) and have been converted. 

My final two favourites are the Original Source Orange & Cinnamon shower gel which I don't need to say much about other than it smells amazing. The Jergens body moisturisers are also a great find- I'm not really fussy about body lotions but these are really moisturising and absorb easily into the skin.

What are your favourite skin and body products from 2012?

  1. Totally with you on the cleanse & polish / flannels front! I am still yet to try bioderma - maybe I will finally in the new year!
