New Skincare Favourites

I'm always trying out new products in an attempt to find the perfect skincare routine, and lately I've discovered three new ones that have become daily essentials for me. 

Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream (£23)
I've mentioned before that Origins are one of my favourite skincare brands- the GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser is one of my most loved products, so it was about time I picked up a pot of the eye cream from the same range. I always notice such a big difference when I use this; it brightens up and refreshes my under eye area instantly, making me look like I've had a full nights sleep. It contains ingredients such as caffeine and magnolia extract which combat those pesky dark circles and reduce any puffiness, swelling and signs of fatigue. The cream has a slight shimmer to it too, so it really helps to illuminate and add some radiance to the skin.

REN Clarifying Toning Lotion (£12)
If I had to pick a favourite out of all three products then this would be it; this exfoliating toning lotion works to slough away dead skin cells and unclog dirt and grime from the pores, leaving the complexion looking clearer and smoother. This is the first exfoliating toner I've used and I love how it works wonders on my decongested skin and makes my complexion look more balanced and healthy. It's gentle enough to be used every day, so I've been using it morning and night and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. My skin feels fresher, less oily and my pores have never been clearer thanks to this. 

Avene Cleanence MAT Mattifying Emulsion (£12)
One of the worst things about having oily skin is trying to find a moisturiser that is hydrating and nourishing, but won't feel too heavy or greasy on the skin. This offering from Avene aims to purify and balance the skin, while deep cleansing the pores and regulating oil secretion. I adore this moisturiser as it's so light and absorbs into my skin beautifully, resulting in a healthy looking, shine free complexion. It feels lovely and cooling when applied and feels hydrating enough for the day time, although I do like to mix it with a facial oil at night for a little more nourishment. This also makes an excellent base for my make up and is so affordable!

Have you tried any of these products?


  1. That Origins Ginzing Eye cream sounds seriously amazing! I feel like a lot of eye creams don't do anything. The REN Toner sounds great too, I recently tried an exfoliating toner and love what it does, I'll be sure to check REN out.

  2. I really didn't get on with the Avene Cleanance K when I gave it a try well over a year ago, and was sadly disappointed. Glad to hear that you are benefitting from this moisturiser though x

    1. That's a shame, what was it you didn't like about it?
