In today’s video I’m talking through the full prescription and skincare routine she shared for me.
Please note: this was personal to me based on a thorough medical examination of my skin, and before using anything similar you should consult your own doctor.
This video features press samples.
Hydreane BB Cream
If glowing, dewy skin is your thing, this BB Cream is well worth trying. A light coverage, this would work well on it’s own for a barely there look or with a hint of concealer here and there for a fresh, light base. The formula is quite thick so be sure to use a small amount, and beware the warning – this is a hydrating BB and may be too rich for normal (let alone oily) skin.
Citaplast Baume B5 – Soothing Repairing Balm
A rich, creamy balm, this is ideal for dryness or chapped skin. I’ve been using mine on elbows and knees to get my skin soft and supple in time for spring – before I know it the sun will be upon us and I’ll be hitting the fake tan more often. Upon application tight skin is instantly relaxed and the balmy finish will ensure sustained protection.
Thermal Spring Water
If you could bottle refreshment, I think this is what it would feel like! Lots of beauty insiders seem to regard this as the hero product from La Roche-Posay, and considering how cheap it is (prices start as low as £3.00 at the moment on escentual.com) it is definitely one to try. What’s handy is that it comes in multiple sizes, one of which being a 50ml tin that fits perfectly into the average handbag. A soft, cold mist, this is light enough for a cooling spritz even on top of make-up.
If you live with your family, like me, and love to have a bathroom stocked with one-for-all items, this is a brilliant range to explore. I can’t wait to get my hands on the Intense Hydraphase Eye Cream – have any of you tried it? Tweet me @MixedGemsUK and let me know.
