The best of drugstore skincare ♡

Hey Guys,

Drugstore skincare is pretty amazing isn't, I feel like it's taken a little bit of a back seat with all the rave about high end skincare. We have the Caudalie, Liz Earle, Origins, you name it, they've become much more popular in recent years. Which is why, I thought I'd dedicate a blog post about a few of my favourite drugstore bits. I use a lot more of drugstore skincare than I do, high end. I think the only high end cleanser, I've ever gotten on with is the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, it's fabulous, but I've yet to find a 'dupe' for it. Actually, question, can skincare really have a dupe? ...

I completely forgot to mention my skin type. I have combination, spot-prone skin, my nose can get quite oily, whilst my cheeks can be annoyingly dry!

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Cleanser (£7.95)

To start off, we have my absolute holy grail cleanser, I have used this for years and I couldn't be happier. As its glycolic based, it provides my skin with gentle/mild exfoliation, which is why skin feeling pretty clean after. Have you ever had that feeling, where you feel like your skin is a lot cleaner than other days? That's almost how it feels. It slightly foams when mixed with water, nothing crazy or intense, I know foaming cleansers have a bad rep, which is why I was a little hesitant when giving this a go the first time. I couldn't be happier with this, it's reduced my acne scars, which I can't really fault!

Clean and Clear Treatment Gel (£4.35) 

Now, this, along with the cleanser is a cult product of mine. I've been through many spot treatments, La Roche Posay, The Body Shop, Tea Tree Gel, Witch Hazel Treatments, The Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, you name it, I've probably tried it. But nothing has come close, literally nothing. This helps reduce the size of the spot either overnight or within the next few days, it depends on the size of the spot. And it reduces scarring, its absolutely amazing. The best part is, the price, and how easily available it is. I can't fault something that is under a fiver and sold at Boots or Superdrug.

Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Cleaner (£7.99)*

I've been trialing this for just under 2 months ans it has become a firm favourite. I rotate between this and the Glycolic Cleanser. This is definitely more hydrating, and softening because it is a cream based cleanser. By that I mean, its super cream as it includes Shea and Cocoa Butters, which I was scared would break my skin out, luckily they haven't do far. The best part is that it smells of rose, I pretty much love anything Rose scented.

Superfacialist Rose Peaceful Skin Night Cream (£14.99)*

Up next we have another Superfacialist product that I have used religiously every night! Its pretty amazing, I apply it as the last step on my evening skincare routine and I wake up with moisturized, softened and bouncy skin. And although I've been using this every night, the tub is still almost full of product, it's like I haven't even made a dent. Even though this is a drugstore post, the price of this is a little higher than other drugstore skincare, but hey, it's sold at the drugstore so I guess it's classified as one ...

Carmex Original Pot (£2.59)

You had to have known this was coming right? I'm not going to bang on about it again and again but its the best lip product ever, like ever. It's cheap, moisturising and does an amazing job at hydrating the lips. Done. How quick was that lol.

And there we have it for today's post, what's your favourite drugstore skincare item?
