New Skincare Love

I'm pretty fussy when it comes to my skincare routine, I don't like to try too many new products due to having very sensitive skin. The thought of trying something different from my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish terrifies me! Recently I've been having a bit of a love hate relationship with the Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator, a product that has been in my skincare routine for a good while and I haven't felt the need to move on to something different, until now. 

My skin has been tight, dry and dehydrated over the past few weeks due to several factors, one being the horrible UK weather. I've been really struggling with my skin and decided to put the exfoliator down and try something different. I've had the St Ives Daily Microdermabrasion in my collection for over a year, I used it once and it was thrown in the back of the cupboards like most other things. I grabbed this and thought Id give it another go, oh my, I don't know why I didn't fall in love before.

The St Ives Daily Microdermabrasion contains tiny mineral crystals that exfoliate deeper into the skin leaving you with a baby soft face. The consistency is pretty thick and a little goes a long way, use too much and you'll end up with crystals everywhere. I tend to mix the product with a little water to make it go that bit further and to turn it into more of a scrub texture rather than just a gel.

I am super impressed by this product and it's become part of my skincare routine, I will use it once a week or more if needed, I love how gentle it is on my sensitive skin but it is still extremely effective and fights off any dry, flaky skin I may be suffering from. 

Have you tried any St Ives products?
