New Year Skincare - Daily Beauty AM


If you follow me on twitter or Instagram you'll have already seen pictures like this - this is my morning routine of the moment. I thought I'd try and put some up here more regularly as I am always asked for further details on the products. (If you see one of these pics on twitter or Instagram and want more info just give me a kick - not literally - rude.)

Left to right are:

Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser - really enjoying this. I use it in the mornings if I'm feeling grubby. It's like a runny clay and just cleanses and refreshes without drying. It doesn't in any way foam - ignore the description on the link.

P50 - I'm back to this at the moment - my post-Christmas skin needed the exfoliation and there's nothing quite like it. 

La Roche Posay Serozinc - as this is unbelievably not available in the UK (sort it out LRP), the gorgeous Amelia brought me enough back from Europe to survive Armageddon (THANK YOU!). Spraying zinc on top of your exfoliating toner stage gives you a little hydration before Hydraluron but more importantly for me its great for preventing breakouts. I toyed with the idea of linking to a picture saying 'WHY ISN'T THIS ON SALE IN THE UK YOU MUPPETS?' but thought it would be rude. Oh. My bad.  Also sidebar: the LRP has to be one of the most confusing/long websites out there. Please also fix that. Alrighty then.

Eysilix - still using this too. It's so easy, perfect texture, great packaging and helps my dark circles - which hardly any other eye cream does. 

Hydraluron - I'm changing this to 'Hironsluron' - still using it most days. Twice a day unless I'm going for an oil or balm in the evening.

Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair - I think this and the Goat Cream are the Holy Grail of KS's range. This takes 10 years off of my skin upon application. It is designed as a moisturiser but I use it as a serum underneath...

Kate Somerville Nourish Daily Moisturiser - I treat this as an overcoat. It goes on last on days I am dehydrated - which in this weather and after recovering from drinking alcohol (even a little) on a daily basis over Christmas - I am.

The Kate Somerville range is still unavailable in the UK. RUDE. Please also sort that.
I'm clearly feeling very bossy today.

  5. Any alternative to Kate for Oily/ dehydrated skin? Goats milk breaks me out :( Was thinking of trying Decleor oxygenating matt finish fluid?

  6. Also want the Hydraluron and Eysilix. Not available in Australia, and boots don't ship internationally (which would be better because if it was actually sold here they'd just jack up the price -- RUDE). Sort it out, Boots, or Indeed Labs, or whoever. Just sort it out.

  7. Quick question but win eye creams are you meant to put them all over the eye area (eyelids, browbone, under eye) or just under your eyes? Sorry if it's a stupid question! Thanks :)

  11. I suspect LRP only sells Serozinc in France, as they don't have it in Portugal either! I'm quite interested in this, so off to find an online parapharmacy...

  12. There has to be a white van man out there selling Kate's stuff...

  13. Could you do a post on treating acne scars? I have been using good skincare for about a year now but haven't seen much of a difference in terms of those scars left behind. You have gone into much depth about acne and spots but I didn't come across information related to scarring. Thanks in advance!

  14. Could you do a post on treating acne scars? I think it would be useful to many of your readers. I have religiously been using good skincare but haven't seen them fading completely. Hope you will be able to do so -- thanks in advance!

  17. Hi, could I layer clarins facial oil over my serum of choice (EL ANR)??

  18. I love LRP products but I always look so shifty in Boots as I look at the products trying to decipher the French or trying to find the English text that the product in question is going by and its directions!

  19. Lucky you still have original P50 by looks of label..don't think the new formulation is as good no tingling !!

  20. What are you using for SPF (sun protection)? Thanks.

  21. loved this thank you!I was so worried that I was using too many products in the morning but now I feel pretty good!Is it the UK version of the P50? I am using the pixi glow tonic to try & compare them. Also the Sunday Riley line has caught my attention lately, interesting that it is in your routine. :)

  22. For those who don't live in England, you can always try Ebay! That's what I just did for the Hydraluron. It's more expensive but unfortunately, I think that's the only way if you really want to get it!

  26. Hey Caroline!
    Fantastic blog! I love it!
    I was wondering if you'd be able to recommend anything similar to serozinc. It sounds fantastic but I can't find it anywhere and it seems to be out of stock everywhere aswell :(
    Thanks
    Cara xx

  27. Hey Caroline.
    I really wanna try the La Roche Posay Serozinc. I live in Denmark, and i can't find it anywhere. I have been to every store that sells La Roche Posay. Do you know where i can buy it online, and get it to denmark?
    Thank you for the amazing blog :-)

  29. I would love to get a great moisturizer(the one I am currently using is okay)and I would love to try a Kate Somerville one....I have dehydrated (oily t-zone) skin any ideas? I don't know if I should be using a serum either? I have purchased hydraluron and I am wondering if I should use Pepta-bright (I don't have spots or major sun damage). I am in my 30's and hormonal acne on my chin (sometimes). Thanks for your time. :)
