At first I was using the cleanser with a toner I already had. I absolutely loved it!! It was so gentle and the natural smelling seaweed and other ingredients made it smell like products used in a spa facial. After cleansing my skin didn't feel dry or striped it felt moisturised. I found the cream just cut through my makeup so easily I even use it to remove my eye makeup. Like I said I was using a toner I already had but as I was coming to the end of my cleanser I decided I was going to pick up the toner as well while I was repurchasing it. And luckily the pharmacy had an offer on of the cleanser, toner and moisturiser for just €30!! (Coyles for those of you who live near me :))
After using all three for the past week I have to say I'm really impressed. There's a real kick to the toner, not like a striping feeling more like the pow you get when you use mouth wash (if that makes sense to you) it leaves your skin feeling really refreshed and tingly.
With the moisturiser a little bit goes a long way! I apply a tiny dot to my forehead, cheeks and chin and that does my whole face and I use the excess on my hands. It feels so light which makes it perfect for using before you apply makeup as it doesn't feel like the makeup is just sliding of your face.
Why skin care is important:
Cleansing is important to 1. remove all makeup 2. Remove excess oil and dirt that builds up on our faces throughout the day 3. To exfoliate the dead skin cells off to leave brighter skin.
But toning is also very important as it takes away any last traces of cleanser and helps to close the pores so they don't later clog up. Don't forget to avoid the delicate skin in the eye area.
As you've removed all excess oil etc from
Your skin by cleansing and toning it is important to moisturise your skin to rehydrate it even if you have oily skin. People tend to use 'drying' products on oily skin to control it when really that just tells your skin to produce more oil!
A good skin care routine is important to keep your skin in good condition and while it's in good condition your makeup will look better also.
After using these three now I have the face scrub, eye cream and night cream on my wish list.
I hope this post was helpful.. We're nearly there it's almost the weekend!
