Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I changed up my Dermatica personalised formula towards the end of last year. I had been using the Dermatica rosacea treatment for over a year and wanted to spice things up a little so – after consulting the Dermatica Dermatology Team – we introduced Vitamin A (AKA retinoid) into my monthly treatment. I’ve been using the new treatment for 3 months so here’s my full review.
Don’t forget that I have an exclusive discount code for you, so if you’re keen to try Dermatica for yourself, you can find the details at the end of the post.
When I first started this blog, I used to try out new skincare all the time. Those of you who have been here a while will remember that I used to do monthly Skincare Shake Ups, where I would switch up my whole routine at the start of each month. I did this partly because I flipping love skincare and am always on the hunt for the newest thing that might transform my skin, but partly I did it so that I could better give advice to more people. I get a lot of questions asking for affordable options, some want luxury treats, others want vegan options, or at least cruelty-free options, or products available in specific countries, things from independent brands, things available online… the list is endless and I wanted to try to find things that worked for any or all of you. Sadly, as we all know, sensitive skin – and particularly rosacea – thrives on routine. My skin has never been happier since I stopped switching skincare so often, relying on my tried and true products that I know won’t let me down.
Because of this, I tend to turn down most new product launches unless they’re offering something new, exciting, or different. Which brings me to today’s blog post: a SVR Sensifine skincare range review.
Every few months the Escentual French Pharmacy sale rolls around and I get panicked messages from people spoiled for choice. But do not fear, I’ve put together an updated list of my favourite French skincare bits in case you wanted to grab a bargain (up to 1/3 off all French Pharmacy products so it’s worth stocking up!) and to also serve as a reference point in the future. French skincare has long been my go-to, so here’s a list of what I would recommend for anyone, but especially those with rosacea or sensitive skin.
I typically post one Skincare Shake Up post a month to show you what I’m using and what has made the cut, but some of you have noticed that I skipped May. I had been trying a few new products and wanted to give them a little bit of time because summer weather and rosacea are not a fun combination at the best of times, but adding in unknown products? Potentially disastrous! So both of the skincare routines below have been in place for two months.
It barely feels like a week has passed since my last Skincare Shake Up… how on earth did January last for three years but February disappeared in the blink of an eye? Are you ready to hear all about the skincare I used and loved/loathed this month? Get comfy and let’s go!
