As the seasons have now changed, so has my skincare routine. So I’ve brought in some new products from Lancôme, their new Hot Cloth Cleansers and iconic serum to help cleanse and nourish my skin.
I’ve mentioned in a few previous posts that I’m not 100% happy with my skin right now, with excess travelling I’ve been doing and working extra hours in the lead up to Christmas. It’s all taking its toll on my skin!
I’ve been testing out some new products to not only nourish and protect my skin, but also provide a little bit of pampering goodness too. Here’s a little back story to my skin type, my skin is very reactive. If I haven’t slept well or drank enough water or stressed out it shows immediately on my face. Recently with the change in season any ‘good skin days’ I use to have are out the window. Lancôme recently released exclusively to John Lewis, their Hot Cloth Cleansers for dry and combination skin.
Hot Cloth Cleansers
During the colder months I like my cleansers to be a little bit more nourishing and pampering, quenching my skin’s thirst without stripping or aggravating my skin. I have been reaching in the mornings and evenings Lancôme’s Crème Mousse Confort as my skin is feeling more dry than usual. The Crème Mousse Confort is a rich soft lather that removes my makeup and cleanses. I love the texture of it, as it feel extra luxurious. All I do is squeeze a small amount into my hand and massage into my skin, then a creamy foam will appear. Then I soak the muslin cloth in a warm water to remove the cleanser and buff away any dead or dry skin cells, which works to bring a healthy glow to the skin. This is such a pleasure to use, smells great and does wonders to the skin that need extra loving. For the time being I have ditched my electric facial cleansing brush, for the gentle muslin cloth, which are great one to use with a facial cleanser, as you get that deep clean but still being gentle. Unlike other foaming cleansers, this one doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight or thirsty afterwards, just refreshed and looking healthy.
Available in store & online at John Lewis RRP £20.25
One of my favourite skincare switches of winter is rich serum that penetrates the skin deep down. There is something so comforting about a rich and luxurious serum. I have a few that I’ve been trying out but my skin has a firm favourite; Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique Serum. Each morning I apply a small amount which is enough to cover my face and feel that it makes my moisturizer work better at keeping my skin hydrated for the day ahead. This serum has so many properties to keep my skin looking youthful, but I can’t comment yet if those have taken effect. All I know is my skin is more glowing and feels lifted, perfect for the long cold days of work Christmas parties.This is number one serum from Lancôme and I can see why it’s proven to be so popular.
Lancôme Advanced Génifique Serum – £53.00- £84.00 depending what size you buy.
