In recent years I have definitely neglected my skin as using makeup wipes became a consistent habit. However the past few months my foundation has not been looking nice at all due to my extremely dry skin, specifically on my nose. Finally I decided it was time to invest in some products, here is what I bought and what I think of them so far:
No 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Balm (£9.50) - I popped into Boots the other week and noticed this cleanser however did not pick it up. It played on my mind as it seemed like a great product to improve my skin due to specifically being for dry to very dry skin. It claims to 'cleanse, comfort and hydrate' which I definitely think is try. I apply it just like it says on the bottle, by smoothing it over my skin and remove with a cotton pad. If you are interested in this product then definitely check out the amazing reviews on the Boots website!
Soap and Glory The Greatest Scrub of All (£9) - With a name like this I just had to pick it up. This was primary bought to scrub my very dry nose as that was the area which was most noticeable, even without wearing foundation. I apply this onto a damp face and scrub my nose, forehead and chin for around 30 seconds then remove. It definitely leaves my face feeling a lot smoother and more fresh however, I will only be using this around once a week as it may be a little harsh on my skin if I do it more.
Soap and Glory Beauty Sleep Accelerator (£13) - I bought this in hopes that it would assist the No 7 cleanser in hydrating my skin. Reading the description, this product sounds like an intense moisturiser which is definitely is. It claims that it 'super-hydrating, powerfully rejuvenating, and specially formulated with actives and nutrients that feed and plump your skin while you sleep' which I have found to be true. After applying a tiny amount of this at night, I wake up with wonderfully hydrated skin and my foundation applies significantly better.
