Escentual skincare wishlist

I’m becoming more and more into skincare, especially as I have noticed such an improvement in my skin. I definitely think this is down to really stepping up my skincare and keeping to my routine. So while having a nose on one of my fave beauty sites Escentual. I had a good look at their skincare products. These are the some of the products that have now been added to my wishlist.

Darphin Dark Circles Relief and De-puffing Eye Serum smoothes and refreshes tired, puffy eyes. Its calming and soothing formula with Peptides, and extracts of Passionflower, Rose and Licorice absorbs quickly to leave the eye area feeling silky smooth and looking like you’ve had a full night’s sleep!
-Reduced puffiness and dark circles
– Softer and brighter eye contour
I have inherited dark circles from my dad so I’m always looking for ways to help improve the look of them. The fact I’m nearly always looking at a screen and having late nights doesn’t help my eyes, which are really sensitive. So waking up with big dark puffy eyes is nothing new. If this could help then I’ll be buying it in by the ship load.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Cream Fortifying & Soothing 24Hr Hydrating Care  £18.00

Fortify your dehydrated skin with the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Cream Fortifying & Soothing 24Hr Hydrating Care Pot Rich. Presented in a luxurious glass pot, the intensive moisturiser restores the balance of dry, sensitised skin.
The innovative cream contains Activ Hyaluronine™, a combination of hyaluronic acid and lipidure that is proven to infuse lasting moisture. This ingredient is micro-encapsulated and delivered as part of a continuous system of hydration. The cream strengthens the natural protective function of the skin and soothes discomfort.
The creamy texture of the Aqualia Thermal Cream is rich in Vichy Thermal Water, which instantly cools irritation and tightness. The lotion instantly melts into the skin without greasiness or stickiness, and skin is replenished with water.

When asking for skincare recommendations on a recent blogger chat, this came up again and again. I’ve tried a few Vichy products and they worked a treat, so I have really high hopes for this. The reviews speak for themselves, that’s why this is at the top of the list.
Unveil a complexion that looks refreshed and rehydrated with the La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Serum, a replenishing, concentrated gel for dehydrated and sensitive skin
The moisturising facial serum is enriched with a highly concentrated blend of La Roche-Posay’s Thermal Spring Water, known for its soothing and anti-irritating properties , plus hyaluronic acid fragments to immediately infuse the skin with deep hydration.
Fast-absorbing and non-greasy, the melt-in gel texture will reduce skin tightness, smooth dehydration lines and provide intense, long-lasting 24hour hydration to ensure that skin is healthy and glowing.

I have only recently got into serums and I’m amazed at how much of a difference they make. They really do help your moisturiser get deeper into the skin. I’m on the market for a new serum as mine is getting low and this sounds fantastic.

Enhance the natural beauty of your lips with the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, a non-sticky lip care treatment that will leave lips feeling nourished and soothed.
The Lip Comfort Oil derives from three plant extracts and will enwrap lips in a silky-sheen without the greasy after-feel. Infused with Mirabelle oil, the treatment helps to prevent dehydration and will leave the lips feeling supple and satiny-smooth.
I constantly struggle with my dry chapped lips. I find a product that works fabulously then my lips seem to become immune to it. So I’m always trying to keep one step ahead of my lips and switch up my lipcare. I have heard so many good things about this oil, I definitely need to give this a go.

Avene Gentle Toner £11.50

Complete your cleansing routine with the Avène Gentle Toner, an alcohol-free formulation that removes every last trace of cleanser.
The protective toner has been specifically developed for the needs of sensitive, dry, and very dry skin, and does not irritate or dry out the complexion. The Avène Thermal Spring Water-rich composition is enriched in natural silicates, which work to protect the skin against external aggression without altering the skin’s natural hydrolipidic film.

I’m a massive fan of Avene they create some terrific products. If you haven’t checked them out I really recommend you do. Especially if you have sensitive skin as their products are really gentle yet hardworking. The protecting properties of this toner are one of the things that sell this to me.

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Hydrating Boost Night Mask £22.00

Give your skin the boost of moisture it needs with the Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Hydrating Boost Night Mask, an intensely quenching formula.
The combination of moisturising, brightening and retexturising ingredients will work to leave skin feeling soothed, smoothed and hydrated. Working with your skin’s natural cycle, the Hydration Boost Night Mask will instantly soothe parched skin before sleep when your skin is primed to absorb the maximum benefits of your skincare.
After cleansing and toning smooth the mask evenly over the skin. Leave on the skin for 5-10 minutes and rinse or tissue off.

I use a facemask religiously every week. It gives my skin a real boost and is a big part of my pamper routine. I love laying back and relaxing while the masks work their magic. I haven’t heard of this before but it sounds like it would be just up my street.
