From Aesop to Supergoop!, here’s the low-down on all our favourite skincare products this month for every step of your routine
Coming from someone who suffered from horrible cystic acne during her teens, believe me when I say that your skincare routine is just as – or dare I say – even more important, than your make-up routine.
Cue gasps. Violent reactions. Looks of horror.
Hear me out, I love beauty just as much as the next girly-girl out there! But there’s nothing quite like the feeling of wiping off all the gunk you’ve piled on your face at the end of the day.
So without further ado, we’ve narrowed down our favourite skincare products for this month that are guaranteed to make it to your list of holy-grail products too.
Paula’s Choice – Ultra-Gentle Cleanser
If you have sensitive skin like me, then the Paula’s Choice Ultra-Gentle Cleanser may be the answer to your prayers. Feeling like my skin has been stripped of all its moisture and natural oils is one of the worst things I can think of when using a new cleanser. With this product, my skin feels like the complete opposite! After washing my face, my skin feels soft and hydrated. This cleanser also does an excellent job at removing make-up!

Ole Henriksen – Glow 2OH Dark Spot Toner
Toning is one of my favourite parts of my skincare routine if only for the fact that I love taking a look at my cotton pad and seeing if it’s picked up any residual gunk off my face. The Ole Henriksen Glow 2OH Dark Spot Toner is one of my holy grails precisely because of that! Apart from its incredible ingredients like AHAs and Glycolic Acid, this toner targets dark spots, fine lines, skin texture, and wrinkles. It picks up all the unwanted residue that my cleanser might have missed and leaves my skin feeling poreless.

Aesop – Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Intense Serum
The perfect everyday product for urban-dwellers such as myself, Aesop’s Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Intense Serum is designed for those living in warm or humid climates with busy lifestyles. With ingredients such as parsley seed, tocopherol, and red algae, its lightweight and ultra hydrating formula is gentle on the skin and ideal for daily use.

Drunk Elephant – Protini Polypeptide Cream
Having a good moisturizer is vital to one’s beauty routine because it can help protect and prep your skin for make-up. Drunk Elephant’s Protini Polypeptide Cream has easily become a personal favourite because of its strengthening and moisturizing properties. I also love how weightless it feels on my skin!

Supergoop! – Unseen Sunscreen
The Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen had always been on my radar but I never really got the chance to try it out until recently. Known for their clean, yet effective formulations, the best thing about this product is the fact that it doesn’t leave a white cast. My face also feels incredibly refreshed and not at all greasy.
