The Empties Edit

It is not often that I get to finish products, mainly because of my curious and greedy nature. I just can’t seem to stop trying and buying products —I guess that’s why I’m a beauty blogger, eh?

La Roche-Posay Serozinc is also a great product to keep the spots at bay. As it is literally a spray toner that contains zinc, it is anti-bacterial and it stimulates cell growth and replication —a big “Yes, please” when you’re dealing with (pesky) spots. I use this every day and night after cleansing my skin and then follow up with my regular routine —more about it herehere, here and here. And to prevent myself from running out of it, I stocked up on 2 bottles already. Prevention is cure, remember? Another one that I’ve raved about plenty times is Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I’ll keep my ramble short this time: it’s the best on-the-go pick me up or during an office afternoon slump.

The next step after toning are my oils and one that I’ve recently finished is OV Naturals Purifying Tea Tree Oil. Unlike most of the Tea Tree oils out there on the market, this big boy is really nourishing and not stripping at all, whilst purifying the skin and aiding the skin with its anti-bacterial properties.

I’ve written about Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré so many times, I feel like a bore already. To be honest, there’s nothing not to love about this. I’ve gone through tubes of this, and I’ve got a load to keep me going for at least a few years – I stocked up while I lived in Paris, alright. It is a nice thick balm, which is basically a blanket of shea butter and keeps the skin moisture and well. Besides nourishing the skin, it also is a great base for make up, making everything go on smoothly.

When my skin was in a phase that I like to refer as the Mount Everest, Bioderma Sebium AI helped my skin a lot. I should probably say it saved me. I’ve written about it here, but in short, it is a thin but very hydrating moisturiser that also aids in getting rid of spots and blemishes. It does tingle a bit when you apply it, especially when you’ve got a big (cystic) break out to deal with, but it works so well. I actually need to repurchase this to have it in my emergency stock. Although, I do hope the surface of my face will never become the equivalent of a mountain, ever again.
