I don’t like to carry around a huge amount of skincare in my kit. The bottles are big and heavy and a lot of the time never get used. Over the last couple of years I have whittled it down to a few key items that seem to appeal to every skin type.
I always have a liquid cleanser for the eyes and face, a cream cleanser, moisturiser for sensitive skin types and vaseline. I don’t carry toner as usually its not necessary and personally, I think many of the toners I have come across are way too harsh.
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Makeup Remover is my absolute all time kit essential. I won’t waffle on about it too much as there is a previous post
all about it, but I will say its fabulous, works on everyone and can be used for not only eyes, but the entire face.
Simple skincare is another range I have had a lot of success with, and so always carry at least one of their purfiying cleansers in my kit.
The latest moisturiser I have been carrying around with me is La Roche Posay Hyderaphase XL for normal to dry skin types. I use this on almost every skin type as its so incredibly light and disappears into the skin immediately
Johnsons Baby Oil and a little pot of vaseline are 2 other products that never leave my kit. They can be used on dry skin on hands and feet, to remove stubborn makeup, to add shine to the skin, to create an oily effect or sweat, to mix with greasepaints and so on. Both serious multitaskers!
In addition to this I also carry Makeup For Ever Mist & Fix to set makeup and a bunch of cotton disks, cotton buds, foam sponges, a box of tissues and powder puffs.
Next week: Blushers, powder and highlighters!
