Guest Post: Top 5 Skincare Products

Hey Everyone, 
Its that time of the month again where a lovely blogger guest posts and today's is from Angelica over at One Little Vice she does amazing posts and beauty reviews so please check her out there!

  Hello there! I'm Angelica and I write over at One Little Vice and today I'm going to share my top 5 skincare products with you. I currently use each and every one of these products and they're all things that I just couldn't go without so I hope you enjoy reading about them as much as I enjoy using them!
1) The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Pore Minimiser
Since I started using this in January hardly a day has gone by without me using it. I use this as my go-to primer, applying a small amount all over my face before I apply my make-up. As I have oily skin, I really struggle with keeping my skin looking matte throughout the day and this makes a massive difference. My skin feels and looks less oily and my make-up  lasts a lot longer, and at only £7.50  with a tube lasting literally months and months this is one of those must-have products that won’t break the bank.

2) Super Facialist Tea Flower Deep Cleaning Pore Purifying Clay Mask
Whenever I’m having a not-so-perfect skin day this is the face mask I pick up. It’s a really effective clay mask which contains salicylic acid, a fantastic pore de-clogger. It also contains  other balancing ingredients such a shea butter to stop it being too strong and drying. That being said, I do tend to just use this on my t-zone as my cheeks are a little too sensitive to use this all over, or I just apply it on targeted areas that need a little bit of extra help. When I use this face mask I notice the effects of this face mask immediately, it’s a great product if you need to look better pronto as the next day your skin will be visibly clearer and blemishes a lot less red.

3) Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion
I've tried many a cleanser in my time and none have ever been so gentle yet effective as this one. Sensitive skinned girls, this is one for you. Also, doughnut lovers, I swear to you that when I use this cleanser this is all I smell. I know it’s meant to be almond scented but to me it smells of sweet, freshly baked dough. I've repurchased this many times and can’t see myself ever getting bored of it, the nourishment it delivers as it cleanses is just superb. I’d highly recommend this and Weleda is such a lovely brand that if you don’t like the sound of this cleanser then they’re bound to have another product that’ll leave you weak at the knees (I’m also a big fan of their pomegranate body oil).
4) L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil
Two words: holy grail. I can’t rave about this shower oil enough! I have super dry skin on my body that needs moisture daily. I can’t tell you how annoying it is to have to moisturise as often as I do, so any products that help keep my skin hydrated get a big thumbs up from me. This shower oil is the ultimate shower product for anyone with dry skin. When I use this (which is pretty much daily) I find I can get away with moisturising far less often and my skin is just left super soft and nourished with a subtle floral, almond scent lingering behind. It’s luxurious but I have a 500ml bottle that’s lasted 5 months so buying this is more like an investment than a splurge. 

5) Biotherme Pure.Fect Skin Targeted SolutionThis is my newest addition to my skincare favorites and for good reason. I think this is probably the best blemish treatment that I've ever used! On many an occasion I've applied this on large, red, horribly noticeable blemishes and woken up to find them more than halved in size and much less visible with no redness in sight (making them so much easier to cover up with concealer). This is a pricey product, £15.50, but the 15ml you get will last you ages. If you regularly have breakouts that you'd like to get rid of quickly then this is something I'd highly recommend.
So there you have it, those were my top 5 skincare favorites  Writing this post really reminded me how much I rely on each and every one of these to keep feeling and looking my best. I hope you enjoyed this post and I have to say a big thank you to Hannah for letting me write a guest post for her- Thanks Hannah :)
