My Skincare Routine



Good Morning!

Skincare is an important part of our daily routines - at least it should be! If you are a beauty junkie just like me, you love to try out new products all the time. However I do have my Top 5 skincare products ("holy grail products"), which I always return back to.

Some basic information about my skin: my skin is combination to oily, acne prone and sensitive.

My skincare products

Vichy Normaderm Total Mat - it's a skincare product that is most suitable for combination to oily skin. That's the reason I couldn't go a day without this product - my skin is a true combination type, which gets super oily in the summer. This mattifier helps keep excess shine in check because it targets two main causes of shine: oil and sweat. The formula is super light, hydrating and fresh with a gel to powder texture and leaves your skin with a smooth matte finish. I like it because it leaves your skin dry to touch, really not-sticky - which I just hate and try to avoid all the time. It's also great for acne prone skin because it contains Salicylic Acid. I would highly recommend this product (however I'm also testing L'Occitane Ultra Matte Fluid at the moment, which is just as good as this one - review coming soon!)

Oriflame Tea Tree Oil - my skin is also very acne prone and sensitive so I really have to be careful with different types of skincare products I use. My skin finally cleared out after some very long years but every once in a while I still get some spots that I try to get rid off as soon as possible. And for that I love to use Oriflame Tea Tree oil, which I put on a Q-tip and gently put it on the surface of the spot. I usually do this before I go to sleep and the next morning the results are really visible - there's less redness and a smoother texture.

Benefit Porefessional and Nyx Pore Filer - for all the "large pores" gals out there this product is a true life-saver. Your makeup will never look the same - trust me! It minimises the appearance of pores and basically makes your skin flawless. It's translucent, lightweight, oil-free with a silky texture. Your makeup will stay in place all day and also this primer won't break you out (it contains Vitamin E which really suits the skin). The Nyx Pore Filer is the drugstore dupe for the Benefit one, but comparing these two the Nyx Prmer doesn't even come close to the Benefit one. It makes my T zone even more oily and leaves a very sticky feeling (just like clogging the pores). The price is really high for the Porefessional (around 30 euros) but it's definitely worth every penny.

First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy - if you don't sleep much but still want to look "presentable" every morning this one is for you because it instantly depuffs, brightens and smoothes your under-eye area. Eye Duty Triply Remedy is a complete eye treatment that instantly erases dark circles while also having some serious long-term skin care benefits. I use it in the colour Fair/Medium which is suitable for anyone with light, or slightly tanned skin and Medium/Deep for anyone with bronze, dark skin. This formulation instantly brightens the entire eye area with its naturally sheer tint and light reflecting pigments to create an illusion of bright, smooth and youthful skin. The eyes immediately appear brighter and more awake without putting on any additional (heavy) concealer.

Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer - I have very oily skin and this has been a great product to help keep oil at bay and extend the wear of my foundation. The texture dries down from sticky to perfectly matte very quickly and once it sets, it's virtually undetectable on my skin. I like to use it under my foundation to pro-long the wear. It also has an SPF, which is another lovely feature because now you don't have to put another layer of suncream under your makeup. This isn't the cheapest primer at the drugstore but it's really an excellent product. Also the packaging is great - a glass pump bottle, which looks very luxurious and unexpected for a drugstore brand. However I would not recommend this one for dry skin because it will emphasise your patchy areas!



Dobro jutro!

Vsakodnevna skrb za kožo bi morala biti naša prioriteta, vendar na žalost prevečkrat pozabimo na njo. Danes vam bom predstavila mojih 5 najljubših izdelkov za nego kože. Najprej le nekaj osnovnih informacij - moja koža je kombinirana, toda bolj mastna v času poletja ter občutljiva, zato je potrebna izvrstna nega.

Vichy je znamka, ki jo že leta z veseljem uporabljam, saj še nikoli nisem imela nobene slabe izkušnje (ne alergijske reakcije kot tudi ne mozoljev). Ker je moja koža še posebej mastna v času poletja moram uporabljati kremo, ki ustvari videz matirane kože. Formula Total Mat je izredno lahka in hidratantna. Krema spada v kolekcijo Normaderm, ki je še posebej namenjena problematični koži, saj vsebuje salicilno kislino, ki je izvrsten tretma aknaste kože. Sama tektstura se iz začetnega gela hitro spremeni v bolj pudrast izgled. Je izvrsten izdelek, ki ga uporabljam prav vsak dan in je nedvomno nepogrešljiv del moje nege.

Oriflamovo olje čajevca je še en izvrsten produkt pri zdravljenju problematične kože. Kadarkoli se pojavijo mozolji s palčko nanesem kanček olja pred spanjem in rezultati so vidni že takoj naslednji dan - prisotne je manj rdečice in sama tekstura kože je bolj gladka.

Ne vem če pri nas obstaja kakšen produkt, ki bi zmanjševal izgled por. Prav zato je Benefit Porefessional definitivno nepogrešljiv del moje kozmetike. Benefit Porefessional zapolni pore in zmanjša videz le-teh ter ustvari gladko teksturo za nanos pudra. Če imate "velike"/vidne pore, bo ta izdelek odličen za vas! Možno ga je dobiti na Feel Unique spletni strani ali pa v Sephori nam najbližji v Italiji.

First Aid Beauty: še en izdelek, ki ga je možno kupiti le preko interneta. Sama sem ga našla na BeautyBay spletni strani in ko sem brala ocene sem bila odločena, da ga preizkusim. In ni mi žal! To je odlična hidratantna krema z roza tinto, ki dobesedno "zbriše" vse podočnjake ter da koži svež in "naspan" izgled. Na voljo je v dveh barvah - v svetlejši (fair to medium) in temnejši (medium to deep). Izdelek je tudi dovolj prekriven, da ni treba dodati nobenega korekterja.

Max Factor Primer: o tem izdelku sem že večkrat pisala, ker je res odličen "primer" in ga vedno znova z veseljem kupim. Je odličen za bolj mastno ali pa kombinirano kožo, saj ustvari matiran videz na katerega nato nanesemo izbrano podlago. Podaljša pa tudi čas nosljivosti le-te. Je popolnoma neopazen, ko se docela vpije v kožo in jo tudi zgladi ter daje občutek mehkobe. Čudovita je tudi steklena embalaža, ki je danes že prava redkost - predvsem pri tako ugodnem izdelku.

Vsi izdelki so visoke kakovosti in enostavni za uporabo, zato vam priporočam, da jih preizkusite!
