Current Skincare

Thursday, 5 May 2016



I'd been thinking of doing a skincare post for a while now and just thought I might as well do it. My skincare is pretty simple, as you can see above I use Skinfood products which are NZ made and budget friendly

The first product I'd ever tried from Skinfood was their Mud Masque which I heard a lot of good things about. I've already done a post on it before and I still love it. The product is creamy and smooth and also dries pretty quickly. I always make sure to put a good amount on and around my nose as that area tends to get the most blackheads as well as any breakouts. As soon as I remove it my skin feels fresh and clean and not dried out at all. As I mentioned before it often makes my eyes water thanks to the sulphur from the Rotorua mud but it's a price I'm willing to pay.

I first got a bottle of the Exfoliating Scrub in a Beauty Box and I really liked it. Like with the Mud Masque I like to concentrate around my nose as it's the area which really needs some exfoliating. Like with the masque my skin feels clean and smooth afterwards. The formula has a nice fresh scent and has walnut shell, cucumber extract, manuka honey, aloe vera, sweet almond and lime. All the good stuff.

I'd previously been using Cetaphil for a long time as a cleanser. It wasn't really doing anything for me so I decided to try the Skinfood Cleans All which was also cheaper as well. Like with the exfoliating scrub it has a very fresh scent; made up of manuka honey, kiwifruit & limeflower extracts, sunflower oil and aloe vera. When I use it my skin feels refreshed, it's also very creamy and I love massaging it in.


This is my most recent skincare purchase. I've been hearing how much people love Rosehip oil and I wanted to try it out. I've been enjoying it so far, I rub some in after I've washed my face at night. I also love using the dropper, I don't know why I just find it fun.


This is probably the product I use the most, I apply it twice a day. Skinfood has other moisturises but I went for this one as it has spf 15, it's always important to keep your skin protected. Like with the cleanser it's very creamy and a little goes a long way. It once again has a fresh scent and it contains manuka honey and aloe vera as well.

What products do you use in your current skincare routine?
