One of my most asked questions has to be about skincare recommendations, and skincare on a budget so today I'm going to introduce you to a great skincare starter set.
Skincare is incredibly personal and that's why I really love starter sets and samples so you can examine a range without pulling too much at your pursestrings. They are also great for when you're travelling and need everything a bit more micro sized and manageable.
The Elemis Fresh Skin Discovery Kit* comes with:
- Peachy Perfect Gentle Face Wash
- Skin Glow Exfoliating Face Wash
- Softly Softly Daily Moisturiser
- Dreamy Sleep Night Time Moisturiser
- 3x Sachets of Deep Clean Purifying Face Mask
The gentle face wash is gentle and does not irritate my sensitive skin but it only has a slight peachy scent and I haven't noticed any major skin improvements. I'm not the biggest fan of gel formula's so perhaps this is why this one is not so much for me. Nonetheless this would be great to carry around as a simple and refreshing face wash.
One product that I did love within this set was the Exfoliating Face Wash which was mild and non abrasive but still felt like my skin was getting a good revival and ridding of dead skin cells. Both the night time and daily moisturiser had a refreshing minty scent and were hydrating but light enough for these hotter summer days. Great for creating a smooth base for applying makeup.
I'm yet to experiment with the Deep Clean Purifying Mask, hence why it was not pictured above, but if it follows the mild yet refreshing standard set by the rest of the set I look forward to trying it out whilst I soak in the tub later tonight.
Overal a great skincare set for beginners and those on the go, cheap and cheerful for only £20.
