Its not often that I let a new skincare product in to my (very minimal) routine, but a few back back I started with the mother of all breakouts. Nothing was clearing it up and if anything, my usual products seemed to be making matters worse rather than solving the problem, so a skincare shake up was most definitely in order. I swapped my usual foundation for a different model, changed my cleanser for a more sensitive option and even switched up my shampoo, just in case, and things seem to be finally starting to calm down. The things I’ve really got to thank for this though are three dreamy products from French skincare brand, Decléor that have done wonders for my complexion.
Decléor very kindly sent me a bundle of skincare products designed to target spot and acne-prone skin, and each and every one of them is seriously lovely to use, but there’s three in particular that I feel have made a huge difference.
After using my cleanser in the mornings, I now use a little of the Hydra Floral White Petal Skin Perfecting Concentrate, which I pat gently over my face to prep the skin for a moisturiser. This is a super light concentrate has a delicate oil-like consistency that soaks in to the skin almost immediately and smells incredible thanks to its Sweet Orange Essential Oil and Rose Floral Water. Its designed to eliminate dark spots and leave a bright complexion, which is perfect for me! I’ve never really been a fan of serums or oils before, but I’m really impressed with this.
I then follow with the Skin Perfecting Hydrating Milky Lotion from the same Hydra Floral White Petal range, which reduces the appearance of blemishes and refines the skin texture. My skin feels amazing after using the combination, and I’ve found that my make up goes on much more smoothly and lasts longer too afterwards.
My favourite product of all though has to be the Aromessence Ylang Ylang Purifying Night Balm. My skin absolutely loves this stuff! This is a waxy balm that melts into the skin and feels super pampering with its aromatic scent of sage, rosemary, lavender and lemon. The balm is designed to repair problematic skin as you sleep, reducing sebum production and soothing imperfections and inflammations. My skin feels so great when I wake up, and it really helps to fight breakouts overnight. I can tell if I’ve forgotten to use this as I wake up with dry, dull skin the next morning, with my skin craving some moisture. I’d go as far to say that this is a wonder product for me, and has fast become my holy grail when it comes to skincare!
As I said, its not often that I find something that can make its way in to my skincare routine, so to find not one, not two, but three amazing products from one brand is pretty darn special, so thank you Décleor for helping me find my skin saviours! Let me know if you’ve tried any more from the range as I’d love to discover more of their products.
