DRUG STORE: EUCERIN AQUAPORIN ACTIVE CREAMAnyone with any kind of problem skin will most likely have encountered the brand Eucerin at some point in their skincare journey; my skin has had many meetings with their products! Basically, they're a brand that has come into being from working with dermatologists to create products that deal with various problems the skin can have. I've mostly used their products for blemish prone skin to combat those nasty under the skin spots (their toner is my fav!) but over the winter season, I tried some of their products for dryer skin. My skin isn't dry by any means but it is very dehydrated and it was in pretty bad shape throughout December. The Aquaporin Active Cream is a thick, hydrating moisturiser that's designed to rehydrate the skin without being too heavy and despite it being a rather thick and intense cream, it is actually intended for normal to combination skin. Granted, the packaging of Eucerin products is quite clinical and very "chemist" looking if you know what I mean, they do their job and after all, that's mainly what we want from a product right, even if we won't be posting it on our Instagram page.
The Eucerin Aquaporin Active Cream comes in at £15.50 and is available at most drug stores including Boots. Shop it online here.
The Avocodo Night Cream comes in at £33.99. Shop here.
LUXURY: ARGENTUM LA POTION INFINITE
Okay so this skincare product is the most expensive I've ever managed to get my little hands on and definitely comes under the category of "splurge". This La Potion Infinite from Argentum is an anti-aging cream that comes in just under £150 which for me is a huge amount to spend on a little pot of face stuff. At first when I heard the price, I was horrified - how could anyone possibly justify spending that much on a skincare product?! However, that was before I used it. This cream is actually amazing and after applying it I can actually feel it working on my face, creating a kind of tightening feeling on my skin. It is absolutely fantastic and although I'm not sure that right now I'm in the position to blow 150 quid on a skincare product, I know that if I happened to ever come into enough money to do so, this would become a permanent staple. I'm getting close to the bottom of my pot now which is devastating in itself because my skin feels so soft and glowy after using it, I'm trying to savour it at the moment!
The Argentum La Potion Infinite comes in at £147 and is available to shop here.
