Beauty |Skin Care Products I Use Daily.

As I’m getting older, am I thinking more about the products that I use. When it comes to my facial care, I think about it even more than about other products like for my body. The first thing that I look at when it comes to buying facial care products is, does it suit my oily-dry combined skin? I have the well-known oily t-zone and dry upper jawline dryness problem. It was difficult for me to find the perfect one. One that doesn’t have a greasy formula and does not leave greasiness behind.

I have learned at the skin care masterclass at Glamour Magazine NL Beauty Festival, that the smell doesn’t say anything about the product. Whether it smells like roses or like chemicals, it is literally the inside that counts. I immediately understood why I like the drugstore cream from the Dutch brand Kruidvat Originals. It is made of tea tree, it works for my skin very purifying. At first, I couldn’t stand the smell, but now I can’t live without it!

I am truly amazed by the Cellular Beauty line from Lidl. I mean, who doesn’t want to try a dupe from La Prairie? Again, I like the formula of this serum. It’s not greasy and it absorbs quickly into my skin. During my day I feel that my skin is well moisturized, it feels soft too! On top of that, it has a lightly citrus scent. Perfect! I use this one when I feel that I need a break from the other one. I thought my facial skin wouldn’t handle the switch, once in a while. I thought wrong!

Break outs, who doesn’t know those annoying intruders. As fast they come, as fast I want them to leave! Clearasil Rapid Action Pads is my saviour! I apply the pads on the break out and rub it out. I feel that it stings and in a couple of minutes I feel that the pimple shrinks, the next day or two it’s gone. Sleeping with no makeup helps to prevent break outs and I always use a towel only for my face. This can be a small one, perfect to store in my room vanity.

I have heard a lot about the products from Paula’s Choice. I got curious and I was happy to see one in the goodie bag of the Glamour Beauty Festival. I like that it has a 50 SPF. Products who has a SPF of 30 or more, are good for preventing signs of ageing. It also defends skin against sun damage. What more do I need?

Once in week I try to use my Swiss Clinic Derma Roller. I love how it goes through my skin, it makes my pores open and it boosts my collagen production. My skin turns a bit red however, it glows afterwards. I love this roller! I feel that it ‘wakes’ my skin up after all those dirty substances from outside.

Beauty Review | Ziaja.

As am I getting older I’m getting more and more idle. I think it is because you feel your body is changing, like it is upgrading towards adulthood. Your body, your mind and skin changes into a ‘’shape’’ that is called ‘’you’’’. You will get to know yourself better and you will anticipate to it. Whether you like it or not! It is just something that you cannot change because it is called life.

During my life, my facial skin became important to me, I suffered from acne my whole teenage years and they still pop up every now and then. We all are familiar with those annoying intruders on our faces that are caused by stress, diet and even cosmetic products. Because of this, am I always pleased to get to know new brands. Especially when you discover them spontaneously. I met Ziaja through my latest unboxing blogpost and I fell in love with it ever since.

The beauty of Ziaja is that it is based on natural active ingredients and their pharmaceutical experiences, it has a refined and pleasant fragrance and light texture. All their products are carefully dermatologically and allergy tested in their own labs, never on animals! I have been using it for a while now and I am very pleased with it. The moment I opened it for the first time, the smell was such a pleasure to smell! Not chemical at all. The preservatives are reduced to the essential minimum making it enjoyable to use.

The assortment of Ziaja is tremendous; from woman to men to children. Something for everyone! Their focus is on skin, so you will find a range of facial care, body care and even hair care. Because Ziaja has a wide range of beauty products they have thought of all skin types and this shows that they are thoughtful towards their customers.

Lately wat also has been important to me is where I get my beauty products from and if it truly works. I enjoy it every time when I use it. Whenever I’m done with showering I use Moisturising Body Lotion with Silk Proteins. It absorbs quickly and my skin feels soft right away! Because it is moisturising and it reduces skin roughness I use it also on my elbows and knees for that extra soft touch. During my day, I use the Manuka Tree Purifying Normalising Day Cream. It has an SPF 10 factor and it is for an oily/combination skin type which matches perfectly with my own skin type. My facial skin goes from oily, especially on my T-Zone (forehead, nose, chin and the apples of my cheeks.) to dry at my jaw line. The smell of the Manuka Tree is refreshing on my skin and what I mostly love it doesn’t make my face oily at all!

When I want to pamper myself after a long day I remove my makeup with the Cucumber Cleansing Milk, yet again for an oily/combination skin type. The smell of cucumber makes me feel like I’m in a spa resort relaxing with a towel on my head and two slices of cucumber on my eyes. Perfect!

Are you already imagining it Loves?
