I’ve been meaning to buy a new toner and am always searching for a really good moisturiser that is hydrating enough as I’m a bit paranoid of any fine lines on my forehead. Although I’ve always had dehydration lines from my early 20’s that I’ve been fighting against, I never knew what types to buy.
Since losing almost 2 stone last year from Slimming World, I feel they were more noticeable once I’d reached my target and had been exercising almost daily. I have since done my research and learnt that those who lose weight quickly can gain wrinkles, or ones they never knew they had until they lost weight. And it is for this reason, drinking water while losing weight is vital. But there’s only one problem… it’s so boring! I do have phases of trying, but have been focusing on soups and caffeine free teas.
So as of yesterday’s little haul in Sainsburys, I am now all Simple-d out after taking advantage of their 3 for 2 offer. I’ve been waiting to try their Kind-to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser and wasn’t disappointed how it sank into my skin – it was light and quite thin. However, I still felt I needed something to lock in the moisture, which brings me to my 2nd purchase:
Garnier’s Moisture Match for dry skin on offer a £2.50. I’m not sure I would want to pay more than this as the tube is very small, but I am sold already from the first 3 applications. It is almost like a creamy face balm, with the feel of an intensive hand cream. It is ever so slightly on the oily side which is what I need and minimises fine lines immediately. I do prefer using it as a seal on top of the simple moisturiser I bought and it’s been impressive in place of my regular night cream. It also smells lovely which is an added bonus.
The Simple soothing toner did also feel much of an improvement compared to other toners recently. It was extremely refreshing and felt cool on my skin.
As for the age resisting face wash, I can’t say I’ve noticed a difference yet but did my amazon-research on the spot (as I couldn’t make up mind which one to buy) a every reviewer gave it 5/5. It lathered up into a foam which is not ideal for dry/dehydrated skin but will continue to use it and review it later.
I will also be re-starting my soup challenge tomorrow which did hydrate my skin a couple of weeks ago and will be trying to stick to this long term.
