The skincare community: Your thoughts and opinions

, , ,

I thought you may be sick of hearing my opinions and let’s face it, I cannot – no matter how hard I try, test out every skincare product available – I really do try though. So, I decided to enlist the help of beaute.defile and antiagingamber to share their beauty wisdom. I hope that this will become a place where everyone can share there tried and tested opinions.

Christina wrote a great piece on her favourite product to deal with oily skin!

“One of the first items in terms of skincare that I invested in was the Paula’s Choice 2 percent salicylic acid liquid. I use it every single morning and it helps keep my pores minimized as well as clean. Salicylic acid is an ingredient that my skin loves, especially since I am so oily and acne-prone. This liquid solution is made with aloe vera and other hydrating and soothing ingredients that my skin just drinks up. By using this every morning, it helps balance my oils throughout the day and because of that it helps my make-up go on smoother and stay put for longer. I will never be without it”

Her pro tip:

“Decant this from the original packaging into a glass dropper style bottle. You will be able to get way more use out of the full-size bottle. Also apply it with your hands – not with a cotton pad.”

“I was recently asked what my favourite skincare product was, which product I recommend most. While I sample quite a bit of skincare, I do have my tried and true favourites that I repurchase over and over again. And of those favourites, there is one standout that everyone who I recommend it to loves just as much.

That product is Jordan Samuel Skin’s Hydrate. This is a lightweight, hydrating serum that is great for all skin types. I reach for this constantly, and especially when my skin needs to be soothed or a drink of hydration. It’s loaded with antioxidants too to help neutralize free radicals. Another reason why I love this is that it’s versatile and I can mix with other products. It’s a fantastic price point (1oz $29 USD).

And the icing on the cake is that Jordan is amazing. He crafts wonderful products from the heart and aims to educate and engage with anyone interested in skincare. I’m also beyond blessed to call him a friend.”

I would just like to sincerely thank them both for taking the time out to write such considerable and well thought out pieces of information to share with the skincare community! If you would like to feature in my next edition then please email me at
