What was the last product you bought that made your skin look amazing?
I am dry and dehydrated and I had read many rave reviews of the Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Balm. I wasn't hugely keen to try it because i guess it didn't seem 'fancy' enough (shallow).
Well I took the plunge and started using it at the weekend and wow! The glow! My skin seems to absolutely love it. I have been doing really well with diet and exercise recently but this change is just since the weekend - I haven't changed anything else so it must be the balm. My skin was dull and flaky last week but looks plump and glowy now. So highly recommended from me!
Only two things have ever made a huge difference to my skin: fresh aloe vera gel (straight from the plant, not the stuff you buy), and doing Dry January! The latter made an amazing difference to my skin tone and puffy eyes.
I've tried all sorts (up to and including creme de la mer, which is basically Nivea). If there truly was a wonder product I think we'd all know about it by now.
Not skincare but makeup: Dior's BB cream. I had a sample which made me all the things I've dreamt of, glowy, dewy, smooth skin tone. I bought a tube fairly quickly after the sample and haven't regretted it. Lovely product.
I have dry and sensitive skin and also suffered from rosacea last spring. I found the avene range brilliant. It transformed my skin. However I might try that body shop stuff. Oooh I also love the Origins mask for dry/dehydrated skin. My face looks great after I use it.
