Almost Couture Manchester Fashion Blog

If you’ve read Almost Couture before, you’ll know that I’m a serial skincare hoarder. I’ve only recently started taking care of my skin (naughty), but now I’m obsessed with trying out as many lotions and potions as I possibly can.

Look Fantastic sent me their Black Friday Beauty Box last year, and I’ve been hooked on these products ever since – they’re now focal points in my beauty regimen.

I don’t like face masks, but I like this one…

I always feel like face masks are a bit crap – usually I put one on, sit there for ten minutes, and wash it off feeling despondent. (Plus, don’t face masks remind you of high school sleepovers?)

This GlamGlow mask is definitely one for grown-ups; it’s tingly, exfoliating and tightening all in one go. I usually slather this on whilst relaxing in the bath (I’m so decadent) so it can really work its magic.

I like to thin of this cleanser as a little bit of luxury first thing in the morning; I massage it into my skin, then drape a hot, damp, muslin cloth over my face for two minutes, before rinsing with clean water. If my skin is being particularly rubbish, I like to use this followed by the exfoliating cleanser in the pot – they’re not too harsh when paired together, but effective enough to use separately.

Eve Lom is quickly becoming one of my favourite skin care brands, and this magic pot of product is one of the main reasons why. It exfoliates skin but leaves it feeling silky and moisturized, and removes my (many) layers of makeup in one go – impressive to say the least…

Finally, this little tube of wonder has changed my skincare routine tenfold.

My skin can get a little bit oily, but this treatment puts a stop to it in seconds. It absorbs into the skin beautifully, and keeps my face feeling fresh, hydrated and smooth all day. As an added win, it mattifies the look of my makeup and keeps my base in place all day!

What are your skincare must-haves? Have you tried any of these brands before?
