Sunday Skincare #1

Hard-working skincare products

Hard-working products from Alpha H and Ark Skincare

If you’re a regular reader of my corner of the internet, I’m sure you are aware that when it comes to skincare, I like to go ALL IN, especially on Sunday’s when I feel my skin needs a bit of TLC before the working week begins. Last month I added a couple of new products to my skincare routine, and I have to say I have been really impressed with the results I’ve seen from using them daily.

Recently, my work and social life has been pretty hectic (I celebrated my 24th birthday and had the Blogosphere Awards on Friday!) so my skin has really been suffering as my skincare routine has pretty much disappeared. Using these two products within my routine has really helped to get my skin back on track, so I thought I would tell you a bit more about them (and why I love them so much)!

ARK Skincare SkinPerfector Clearing Serum Clearing Serum drops

ARK Skincare SkinPerfector Clearing Serum

Oh boy am I loving this right now. When I use products that claim to clear the skin, I rarely see results (probably because I break out rarely, but have quite a bit of redness). Luckily, that was not the case with this one!

Honestly, a few weeks of using it and I found myself peering in the bathroom mirror amazed at how clear my skin was looking. It’s really helped to reduce the redness I usually have on my chin and cheeks and when I do get the occasional breakouts, they clear up really quickly, which is such a life-saver!

All you need to do is shake the bottle, then add three drops to your moisturiser, then apply, so it’s really easy to add to your skincare routine. You can also apply it directly to your skin as a spot treatment, but as I don’t tend to get breakouts I’ve been using it in my moisturiser for a little boost and it’s really working hard to keep my skin clear.

Alpha-H Liquid Gold Resurfacing Cleansing Cream

As we all know, I’m a Liz Earle gal through and through when it comes to cleansing (Cleanse and Polish works miracles for my skin) but…this is a serious competitor for me and I’ve really loved the results I’ve noticed from using it on my skin for the past month!

It’s a similar texture to Cleanse and Polish, and it includes Glycolic and Lactic acids, which are great for preventing skin congestion. My skin feels clean, but not tight, after using this and it leaves the perfect base for apply my serums and moisturisers on top of. I use a pea sized amount morning and night and remove it gently with a muslin cloth and warm water – easy peasy!
