The Faithful -6- Skincare edition
1- Mixa’s Rich nutritive cream
This is the typical heavy, comfy, a little bit sticky rich cream to primrose oil which comforts and re-hydrates the skin overnight – It can be used for day or night but it is a little bit too heavy for me to be used in the morning – . It does take considerable time to fully penetrate the skin, which is why I can definitely include this cream in the ‘ stick to the pillow’ cream category. I personally do not mind, especially because, when it comes to soothing a dehydrated skin which is tight, I believe this is the only way to gain quick and visible results. Moreover, this is probably the cream I enjoy the most applying and feeling on my skin and my favorite one to offer a fresh start to my skin!
2- Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating toner
This is one the rare products which have genuinely changed my skin. It has refined and brightened my skin texture and even helped with my acne in the jaw area. I do not have much more to say except that Pixi recommends to use it both in the morning and in the evening, yet I must admit that I only use it in the evening – which is the moment when I tend to do my heaviest skincare routine – because I find that it tends to dry out the skin. It also favors spots healing and – slightly – reduces old acne marks. I cannot but recommend it since it is very easy and pleasant product to use – like a toner, quickly swipe the face while avoiding of course the eye area – which truly embellishes the skin.
3- La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying foaming gel
This is the second cleanser I use when my skin breaks out or when I have just spent a long day – with or without makeup- as it thoroughly cleans the skin while healing the small acne, yet without creating dry patches on my skin – which tends to be the case for most cleansers-. It owns a lovely scent which gives an impression of freshness highly appreciated at the end of the day. Finally, I must add that it is not a very expensive product and the tiniest hazelnut is enough to clean the whole face!
