Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
As a teenager, finding a moisturizer that suited my super oily skin was a mission of mine. I didn’t have a clue what my skin needed so I was wearing thick creamy moisturizers that were just sitting on top of my skin which obviously was just making my skin look even more like an oil slick. Gross! Then came in my dad’s then-girlfriend, a make-up artist, who set me up in the right direction with moisturizer; she gave me a bottle of Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel and the rest, as they say, is history. I absolutely love this stuff, and in the years since I was introduced to this wonderful product I’ve tried a variety of similar moisturizers but none work as well as this one.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel for Oily Sensitive Skin
After falling in love with La Roche Posay Serozinc and Effaclar Duo last year I knew that I wanted to try out some more of their products. I am always in the market for a new cleanser (I’ve not quite found my ‘holy grail’ just yet!) and picked this up on a whim when Boots had one of those amazing 3-for-2 offers on skincare and I’m very glad that I did. I use this with my Clarisonic in the morning and it makes my skin feel really clean without feeling tight or dry in any way. I also think that it has improved my skin, not dramatically but still somewhat improved (I’ve pretty much given up on any skin miracles!) I love it so much that when I was half a bottle through, I went and picked up a second just so I didn’t run out!
The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Facial Spray
This stuff is incredible! I think I’m currently on my third bottle since I started using it on a daily basis and I will be re-buying this as and when it runs out for the foreseeable future. I spritz this all over my face once I’ve done my makeup; it makes my face look less cakey, ‘sets’ my make-up and also helps it last a bit longer in the day. When the weather is really cold or my skin is having a particularly dry period I bring a bottle of this out with me and spray it on my face throughout the day for an extra burst of moisture.

So these are probably my top three most re-purchased skincare products at the moment! What are yours? Have you ever tried any of these products?
