I am pretty loyal to my skincare items, which is why I thought it was a good time to take you through some of my long time favorites. These items never leave my shelves and even when I am not using them at the moment, I always ensure to keep a backup around just in case. Plus, all of these products have popped up in several empty product videos as well. These are my top 5 longstanding skincare favorites.
A good facial moisturizer is hard to find. Not because there aren’t any products on the market, on the contrary, it’s mainly the overkill of products that causes the problem. One of my affordable favorites is the Olaz Total Effects moisturizer, but I have deviated from this a few times. Because wouldn’t it be great if you could find a moisturizer that works better, but is more affordable?

I maintain quite an elaborate skincare routine, but it is one that works quite well. One item that I cannot see quitting any time soon is a more recent discovery: The Body Shop’s Vitamin C Energising Face Spritz. This face mist is not one to set your make up with, but definitely a skincare product. Here’s why I love it.

A cult skincare favorite that I had yet to try? The Pixi Exfoliating Glow Tonic. Many fellow bloggers rave about this stuff, but with my sensitive, dehydrated skin I wasn’t sure this would be my cup of tea. But after successfully using The Balm’s Time Balm Skin Clarifier in 2016, I decided to give this a try come 2017. I’ve been using this toner for weeks now so a good moment to share my thoughts with you.

Weleda is an organic skincare brand of which I had yet to try. It’s one of those brands that I’ve seen around, but was never too interested in. Then one day I decided I wanted to try some new skincare and this brand was on sale and I decided: why not. I purchased the Almond Face Cream in the lightweight formula and gave it a whirl.
Almond Soothing Face Cream
Affordable skincare difficult to find? I think so. If there is one thing I like to invest in a little bit it’s my skincare. Good skincare will do wonders and I have been getting a lot of compliments lately about the way my skin looks because I finally found a routine that works. It’s extensive and definitely not cheap if you add up all the prices of all the individual products. So you can understand my intrigue when I found Kruidvat renewed their Originals skincare line. It is supposed to be affordable (no product here cost more than 2 euros) and it should work as well.

Tea Tree Skin Treatment Oil, Apricot Scrub Cream
It’s been more than 2 years ago since I last showed you my current skincare routine. And boy has it changed since then! The products I use and even my skincare routine itself has changed quite a bit. There are about as many products in it, but the products I use and what I use them for have certainly changed. High time that I show you my updated skincare routine.
