Spring Skincare

Skincare for sensitive skin

I've recently been switching up my skincare and whilst I still have my old favouirtes I've discovered some new products that I'm really loving. This may go without saying but if you're trying out new skincare it's good to only change one thing at a time so that you can really tell what product is making a difference. 

I'd recently stopped using a toner and as the weathers getting a little hotter I find spray toners really cooling on the face. I picked up the Triology Hydrating Mist Toner to try, it's a mix of rose, geranium and lavender and smells so calming. I found this gentle enough to use everyday and provides a good amount of hydration to my skin.

Instead of doing a full cleanse in the morning I tend to use a micellar water and I've recently been loving the Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser. Firstly it smells of peaches, which is absolutely dreamy and secondly it's so soft and gentle on the skin and perfect for a quick cleanse. This is the kind of product that I would take on a plane with me or a weekend away. 

I've never really had a favourite eye cream, I always find them much of a muchness until I recently started using the Indeed Labs Eysilix Eye Cream. I really like to consistency of it, it's stops my eyes from getting too dry in the corners, which I often get and generally feels nice on the skin. It's meant to lift the eyes and visibly reduce puffyness, and while I don't see a huge effect I do feel like it generally tightens my under eye area.

I have contemplated buying the Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial for so long I can't remember, and recently Space NK sent me a £10 off voucher and it's all I needed to take the plunge. It's a Vitamin C infused serum that's meant to work as an overnight treatment leaving you with plumped skin in the morning. I've used it a handful of times and whilst I wouldn't say I've seen immediate results I am really enjoying using it. It's feels a little thicker than a serum that you massage into the skin and it smells like orange sherbet. It contains a whole cocktail of skin perfecting agents so whilst I haven't seen results straight away I imagine it's doing wonders for my skin. 

Lastly is a hand cream from the new Energy Bank range from This Works. The Hand Makeover is meant to instantly revive tired looking hands and protect them from environmental aggressors and refine skin tone. It's a really beautiful handcream to use and smells of a lovely mix of Vitamin E, Blackcurrent oil and Shea Butter. 



  1. All of these products sound absolutely gorgeous! I love Clarins skincare, the Hydra Quench range is amazing and the foaming cleanser! I still need to try Sarah Chapman, but you've really tempted me with the Triology Toner!

  2. I love the Clarins Water Comfort One Step Cleanser, it smells so amazing and feels super gentle on your skin. The Sarah Chapman Overnight Facial is one my all time favourites, with having dry/dehydrated skin my face just soaks this right up overnight xx
