I’m not much of a skin care person in general. Truthfully, if I could get away with just a splash of water in the mornings and evenings, I would be thrilled but as it turns out, there is a lot of work behind nice skin and over the years I have realized how important it is to take care of yourself and that includes your skin. I like to keep my routines simple though, otherwise I simply can’t be arsed to get them done. That’s why today I thought I would share three simple products that has made my skin care routine much easier.
Now there are two products in here that are both from The Body Shop and the reason for that is that The Body Shop recently started a product line of tea tree oil products. Tea tree oil, as most of you probably already know, is very effective against acne and other imperfections in the skin and seeing as I have very acne prone skin, it was a good a place to start looking for some decent anti-blemish products.
I purchased The Body Shop’s “Skin Clearing Clay Mask” and their “Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution” and they have both been working very well for me.
Now, tea tree products can be very harsh so it’s probably not a good fit for you if you have sensitive skin. However, they have been working wonders for me, especially the clay mask, I absolutely love it! I don’t use it that often, only about twice a week maybe even less but it’s been very effective in clearing my pores and because it has menthol in it, it has made me feel very refreshed after using it.
The anti-blemish serum has also been quite nice though I would probably prefer a simple tea tree oil instead. So far though, it’s been cheaper to get the serum (I think it was £13? for the entire bottle) and it seems to do the exact same thing. So I’m happy with it!
The last product is from ORIGINS and it’s their “Energy Boosting Gel Moisturizer”. I originally bought this because of a recommendation from my sister and it’s a very nice moisturizer. It smells like oranges which I LOVE but I have to admit, I’m a little conflicted writing this because I saw that The Body Shop has a very similar product that is cheaper than the £35 I gave for the gel moisturizer. I haven’t tested it though so I can’t say which is better but I’ve really been enjoying my ORIGINS one. It’s very light on the skin and incredibly hydrating. Which, let’s admit it, is all we want at the end of the day.
