10 Days 10 Products Challenge! 

I’m not gonna lie. I was surprised how hard it was to pick 10 products! I didn’t realise how much I used now. There was a time when I barely used a face wipe and some moisturiser!!!!

So the idea is that you pick 10 skincare products that you’ll use for 10 days & stick to them. I was intrigued by this challenge as I am a divil for chopping & changing & not giving products a proper chance to see what they can do for me. Some of the products I chose are tried & true & others are new to me. Also I am trying really hard to project pan a lot of my products as I kept buying new products before new ones were even half way through.


First up are Cleansers:

Bioderma Hydrabio H20 Miceller Water: I only started into this for this challenge & I have to say I am in love. I have had the pink one and while I liked it I wasn’t totally blown away by it. But this just seems so soft on the skin, gentle yet cleansing. This will be my go to Micellar from now on & I’ve tried quite a few!

No 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil: Cleansing Oil is a no concept to me & I’m so glad I discovered it. It really encourages my to gently massage my face and is so gentle & effective at dislodging even the most stubborn of makeup including waterproof mascara. This isn’t me absolute favourite but I want to try and use it up. It’s that it’s not good I just love the scent of the Una Brennan Superfacialist one that I own.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser: This is my second bottle of this. It is soft & gentle on my skin and is perfect for my second cleanse in the evening & one & only cleanse in the morning.


Toners;

No 7 Soft & Soothed Gentle Toner: I use this mainly in the morning. It is perfect to reset the balance and calm my skin for the products ahead. I also like it if I am just after a face mask which I don’t like to use acids after using for some reason. This is my second bottle of this.

Vichy Idealia Peeling: This is a new one to my collection. It is a gentle acid that is meant for night time use. They don’t claim overnight results but more a change in skin over time. So far I enjoy how it feels on the skin. It doesn’t sting or tighten skin & I love that you can subtly smell the blueberries.


Serums:

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum: This is my third bottle of this. I use it mainly in the morning as I find it a little bit thicker and I usually forgo Moisturiser in the morning as I never have time to let it fully sink in before applying foundation. Time is off the essence people!! I usually make sure my primer is a moisturising one.

Bioderma Hydrabio Serum: This is my second one of these. When the last one ran out I lasted a day before I had to go & buy it! I use it at night & I feel like my skin just had a drink after applying it. I’ve never felt something react to my skin like that! Firm Favourite.


And Lastly onto my final products ; SPF, Moisturiser & Eye-cream :

Vichy Capital Soleil SPF 50 BB: I’m all about the factor 50 on my face! I had used up the regular version of this which is a very white thick cream & while I liked it I wanted to try something different this year. At First I had opted for a La Roche Posay one but it pilled on my skin something fierce! So when I say this tinted one I was intrigued. The tint is extremely faint. To call this a BB cream is a stretch in my opinion. But it sits perfectly under my foundation so it’s all good.

LACURA Caviar Illuminating Night cream: I picked this up as a set in Lidl out of curiosity & as I had just ran out of my night cream thought the timing was fortuitous as this only come out a couple of times a year. So far so good. It’s quite a thick cream as you would expect from a night cream. It seems to work well at moisturising as my skin has no dry patches at the moment but we’ll have to wait & see as it’s early days.

So that’s it. I did notice as I was writing this that I appear to be a tad obsessed with French Pharmacie Brands. And that’s not gonna end any time soon as I am heading to France in August & plan to stock up 🙂

I’m glad I did this but I’m also glad that I can ease up on the strictness!! Some days I want to use a different cleanser depending on how much make up I’ve had on or a moisturiser during the day or a different eye cream at night.

  1. Haha the face wipe and moisturiser is so me! 😅. How did you get into using more skin care products? You have a great selection of products there, I really want to to try the hot cloth cleanser 😄. On a side note, have you promoted your blog in any Facebook blog groups before? I have just started my own called Blogs In Bloom 😄. I have a post about it on my blog if you want more information 💕

    1. Honestly it was from reading blogs and watching youtubers who kept going on about how if you’re not looking after your base you’re going to have to work harder with your makeup!
      There is a great version of the hot cloth in Superdrug, it’s their own brand and just as good!
      Already joined the group just need to get around to introducing myself 😀
