Skincare is so important in our everyday life, especially when you want to look after your skin for signs of ageing, acne etc. Skincare is the one thing I will always invest in because were only given the one set of skin.

I have to say I’ve never been very strict with my skincare routine because I hate when you don’t see results right away. I never would have classed myself as having sensitive skin but when I see how well my skin has been doing lately with these products I know that what I’ve been using before now have completely wrong for my skin. After using these products I’ve seen immediate results and now I have to apply them every night.

Towards the end of December I picked up the Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream as a new moisturiser after my sister hyped it up so much. I had also seen it a lot online being recommend by various beauty bloggers so I thought I’d give it a go, and I’m so glad I did. Moisturisers have always scared me because I never know how my skin will react to new products, but when I use this it hydtares my skin beautifully and leaves it so smooth and even. It’s very light to apply and dries rather fast. It doesn’t have a very strong smell and a little bit really goes a long way. The difference in the appearance of my skin since I’ve started using it has been amazing and I can’t imagine ever not using this! I would highly recommend trying it and can be picked up here at Arnotts for €28.


For Christmas my Mam got me a few samples from Benefit including their It’s Potent Eye Cream. I’ve never really been one for eye creams and can honesty say that I’ve never used any before this one. I’m not exactly sure what it’s meant to do but it refreshes my eyes and leaves the entire under eye area hydrated and makes me look less tired. This is quite a small sample size but I’ve been using it pretty much every day since Christmas and I still have some left, and I will definitely be purchasing the full size when I run out. You can buy it here in Boots for €35 or you can buy the samples size here for €6.50.


And last but not least is the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Spot Wand which isn’t a new addition to my skincare but is still one of my holy grail products. I’ve been using this product for years and years now and I just can’t get enough. Sometimes when it comes to your skin the simpler it is the better. Tea tree is the best product for my skin if I have any blemishes that need clearing up. This wand comes with two sides, one for day and one for night, although I don’t think it really matters except for the different colours. This really helps clear up any blemishes I have and is also great for healing any marks and uneven skin. This can also be picked up in Boots here for just €4.79.


These are the products I use every night without a shadow of a doubt. Whenever I’m taking off my makeup as well I’ll also use my Garnier Miscellar Cleansing Water and that pretty much sums up my skincare routine. and now that I have a proper routine I will definitely be sticking to it.

Hope you’re having a great start to your week,
