Favourite skin care products

Not a catchy title but there you go. 
I just wanted to post on my favourite skin care products.
A couple of months back my skin acting slightly crazy, I had small spots, blackheads and dry patches and no matter what I put on it would balance it out. Well that is until I started using Lierac cleansers.
I really wanted to try Bioderma Sensibio H2O but couldn't get my mitts on it, so while browsing (my favourite past time) I came across Lierac products.
I have a slight fascination and love for all french beauty related things and Lierac was there and it drew me in.
First I started off with  Lierac Lait Demaquillant Fraicheur - Refreshing Cleansing Milk (the turquoise coloured bottle) which is a lovely gentle cleanser for combination/ normal skin. This cleanser seemed to stabilize my skin, while removing makeup and being gentle. Oh and it contains grapefruit and burdock which clarifies skin.

The other one I bought was the yellow bottled one Lierac Eau De Soin Demaquillante - Cleansing Water for Face & Eyes, which I bought because it was suitable for removing eye makeup, which the cleansing milk didn't. This is a very nice gentle water cleanser and is suitable for the most delicate areas containing floral waters lily and matricaria, which sounds nice :) and are moisturising and soothing.
And to the Pink bottle Lierac Lotion Tonique Douceur - Gentle Toning Lotion, it's similar to the cleansing water except it's not to be used on the eyes, but feels exactly the same on the skin though. It's refreshing yet gentle and removes every trace from your skin, without being harsh. It contains papaver and calendula extracts which have comforting properties, great for winter skin :)

All can be bought here

On to moisturising, again there is some more French added :) in the form of Caudalie.
Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet-Creme was a godsend over summer, it was moistursing yet light and didn't block my pores, it's just gorgeous and sinks straight into skin.
However over winter I think it will be too light, and that's why Trilogy certified organic rosehip oil has come onto the scene again :) It's slightly more oily and rich, that sinks straight into the skin. Rosehip oil is said to improve the appearance of scars, stretchmarks and wrinkles, I'm not sure if it does those things but it makes a nice  moisturiser.

Thanks so much for reading.
Lots of Love Christina XxX
