Premium Skincare


More and more often I discover that, when it comes to skincare, you really get what you pay for. And having sensitive skin, it pays out to invest in slightly more expensive specialized products, rather than going for the brand on offer at your local drugstore. 

At first, I was a little hesitant to invest in more expensive skincare products - What if my skin doesn't react well to this? What if specialized care turns out to be too aggressive for my skin? But they run out so fast if I use them every morning and evening!... It's true, switching skincare brands can be a bit of a hit and miss, but more often than not I've found that going for a trusted high-end brand pays off on my skin. Below are some of my recent favorites that you might not find at your local Boots:

With the cold weather and wind, my skin gets extra sensitive and is prone to redness. A product that has really helped me keep this under control is Frezyderm's Sensitive Red Skin facial cream. Although I don't suffer from rosacea (a skin condition characterized by relapsing and persistent redness), this specialist award-winning cream has helped keep my complexion even this Winter. It also has active anti-aging ingredients that promote hydration and a strong skin barrier. For a specialized skin treatment, this product skips the typical label mark-up at only £17.99!

Having oily skin, I am a big fan of BB creams as they give me the same coverage as that of a sheer foundation, but are more lightweight and include extra hydrating ingredients. I wear makeup at least every Monday to Friday while I am at work, and I find that regular foundation is often too aggressive on my sensitive skin, causing it to break out. I have rotated through many BB cream brands, but this Heaven Skincare by Deborah Mitchell BeeBee Cream has topped my list so far. Based on classic favorites such as hyaluronic acid and silk protein, as well as more innovative elements such as bee venom (yep, you read that right!), this product is a winner in all categories. it provides excellent coverage, evens out my skin tone, promotes healthy moisturized skin, and has SPF 20 sun protection - it is definitely worth the slightly higher price tag at £37.

This BeeBee cream has kept me coming back to Heaven Skincare products, and I now also regularly use other day-to-day products of theirs, including the Cleansing Foam & Wash and Daily Moisturizer, both more affordable starting at £19 and £10, respectively.

These are my most recent favorite finds in skincare, but I also remain faithful to some greats brands that I found in the past. Still a strong supporter of serums, I just can't get over InstaNatural's range. And because gorgeous skincare also includes taking care of your pout, I cannot recommend the Akar lip butter enough!

  2. Love this post! My skin is so dry and sensitive at the moment because of the weather so I completely relate. I discovered Liz Earle a couple of years ago and am addicted. It cleanses my skin so well but is also really gentle. Any irritations I had pretty much disappeared

    1. Great suggestion! I flirted with their Eye Cream a while back, but never actually bought anything. Think I should revisit Liz Earle! x
