2023 new skincare challenge is budget and cruelty free products. This will be so much fun. Not been able to use the old favourites but hopefully find new ones. But only buy replacements when they are on offer and finished everything I currently have in my stash. Brands I can use are; Lumene, Garnier, The Body Shop, Elf, Simple, Beauty Pie. This challenge will run from April 1st 2023 to March 31st 2024. Things also have to good value for my money. My cleansers have to be under £10 unless my favourite expensive is on a good deal. The same for serums and moisturisers. Morning moisturisers in future with either only be SPF 50 or a beauty pie version. SPF is going to be La Roche Posay unless a version from Garnier works as so many of these budget ones have not so far.
Eyebright, micellar waters, toner, mists, hydration serums, peptides, vitamin c serums, moisturisers, spf.
These are my favourite am and pm eye products
Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides are my serums in the morning
Some with sun protection, some without. In the summer, I will probably just use SPF 50.
I use either a cleansing balm or oil on my face, neck and hands, then follow with a gel or cream cleanser
I am testing retinol serums, to see if my sensitive skin accepts it. Taking it very slowly.
These are my favourite so far, Lumene and ELF.
Evening Facial Oils
Liz Earle Superskin is lovely, and the Revolution is new to test.
This includes, exfoliations like peel pads, peels. Masks, and emergency products that work when flaring. Always have it in my stash, as my face can react at any time.
If I finish all these before my skincare challenge 2023 is finished, I all ready have a little stash. These are my latest buys and new storage boxes system. I found these in B&M and they fit in my bedside tables. It also means that I do not need to have a large stash and work so well.
