Hello all my skincare addicts! I’ve been trying loads and loads of new amazing products this Spring, and wanted to share some of my absolute favorites, specifically for daytime. These products cover ALL the bases – from serums to SPF protection, you’re set. Below is a round up and links – hope you find a new goodie to implement into your skincare arsenal.
Elemis Peptide4 Adaptive Day Cream– Alllllll about the texture with this one which is this like dreamy mousse-like finish. Elemis really nails it with this day cream which I layer over my serums. It also acts as my primer, prepping my skin before makeup with a semi-matte finish. Lastly, it adapts to your skin throughout the day so keeps your skin balanced and smooth. BONUS: The Pillow Facial and Recovery Oil from this line is also insane – I alternate between the two at nighttime, which we’ll have to save for a future post 🙂
Medik8 Liquid Peptides – This is the ultimate serum for daytime. It’s collagen and elastin boosting, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles almost instantly. It’s also light-weight, so perfect to layer underneath other products. ALSO, it has prebiotics so it balances your skin out. Remember with your serums, to PAT, not rub, into your face, neck and chest.
Clinique Moisture Surge Eye Concentrate – This product does exactly what it says it’s going to do. And that is fill in any fine lines and wrinkles for the ENTIRE day (talking about 96 hours, to be precise!) It’s a water-gel like serum that leaves your undereye area perfectly hydrated all day long, so perfect before makeup application to keep that area super smooth. You can also use as a one-off eye mask if you’re feeling dehydrated.
Rodial Vitamin C Drops – Oh I just l love drops. I’m all about mixing and experimenting with my skincare, so these are perfect for just that. You can get your daily dose of Vitamin C (which we all need – hello brightening and skin evening). With 6% Vit c complex, it’s the right dose for most skin types. I like to either mix this into my moisturizers, SPF’s OR even my makeup. Completely up to you.
Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF30 – I don’t always love the texture of a sunscreen. Some can feel thick, sticky, and just don’t sit nicely on the skin. I need an SPF / moisturizer combo that leaves my skin feeling dewy and hydrated, WHILST giving me that SPF protection. This one does just the trick – layered under my makeup it’s perfection for daytime. OH, and it also protects against pollution and increases your skin luminosity, hence the ‘prisma-like’ affect.
Tata Harper Illuminating Moisturizer– another great mixer! I LOVE this product for mixing into my foundation / makeup situation to give myself that all over dewy glow. It’s also packed with hyaluronic acid to plump your skin and lock in moisture, which is ideal. BONUS: All of Tata Harper’s products are 100% natural and non-toxic. Such a fan of this one, give it a go!
