My Top Five Beauty Products of 2016!


Sadly, for some, 2016 has come to an end! Whilst many people are rejoicing at the fact that the year that took so many legends from us is over I could not be sadder. I did some great things this year (including starting my Instagram account ‘scienceandskincare’) and found some great products! I’ve minimised the list to just five so you can easily buy them if necessary. So in no particular order…

Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer Mouisterzer – £29.50 – I first discovered this as my skin was getting red and blotchy, which never happens, so I panicked ran into Selfridges and discovered this gem. It cleared my skin in one use, I now officially never have to worry about random rosacea!  Now it is important to note that I have combination to dry skin but Kiehl’s is a great brand so I’m sure you’ll find something great there!

Onsen Aloe Gel Cleanser – £36.58 – Now this one is a bit more difficult to find but is by far my favourite. It is magical, instantly rejuvenating my skin. It must have something to do with that fact that Onsen uses minerals from Japan! I stumbled upon this at a concession at Westfield in London. If you can get this – get it!

Pixi Glow Tonic – £18.00 – Now I’m a little late to this but believe me it is worth the hype. This is quickly becoming a stable in my regime, I honestly don’t think I could live without it. Even though with too much use it could dry my skin out it cleanses and cleans my skin like nothing else! Beside the hydration can always be added back in with a good serum.

Clarins Blue Orchid Oil – £33 – Again totally a staple for me. I have used many oils in my short time on this earth but nothing skins into my skin on the level this does and it lasts all night! If you haven’t tried this yet make it one of the things this year you try out!

Estee Lauder Clear Difference Serum – £45 – My newest addition to my skincare regiment is this beautifully packaged serum. It makes my skin ridiculously soft and clears my skin from the odd blemish quite effectively. All in all very useful and looks great with the rest of my beauty products.

Well that wraps up my short post today I hope everyone has a great year!
