My Current Skincare Wish List

Mario Badescu Skin Care clay mask / Glamglow Giftsexy / ANTIPODES Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream / ANTIPODES Hallelujah Cleanser / Midnight Recovery Eye Kiehls / Perfect Cleanse Omega Cleansing Jelly | Nude / Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash | Nude / Skinesis Rapid Radiance Cleanse | Sarah Chapman / Shupette Ultim8 Cleansing Oil | Shu Uemura 

Today's post has been inspired by the fact that my skin is currently a mess - I have more blemishes then I have ever encountered in my whole adult life, on my face all at one time. Real nice! I can't figure out what is causing the problem and think the best thing to do is to book a facial and discuss it with someone in the know. Oh and to create a skin care wish list as lists pretty much solve everything, right?

1, Shupette Ultim8 Cleansing Oil £75
Do I only want this because it has a cat on the bottle? Most likely but in my defence I have tried the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil in the past and my skin did rather enjoy it...for a while. I found it to quickly cleanse, remove all traces of make-up as well as leaving my skin silky soft. After a while I did notice a good few white heads on my forehead so I am keen to re-try the formula to see if it or the circumstances were to blame.

2 and 3, Nude Perfect Cleanse Omega Cleansing Jelly £32 and Nude Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash £38
If I am entirely honest it was the terms "Cleansing Jelly" and "Fizzy Powder Wash" that have piqued my interest - don't they sound fun? The Cleansing Jelly is essentially a soft balm cleanser from what I have gathered online - I do tend to veer towards this type of texture anyway so this will most likely be a good fit for me. The Nude Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash sounds to be a powdered exfoliant similar to Indeed Labs Facial Powdered Exfoliant which I rather enjoy. I am keen to see just how alike the two formulations are.

4, Glamglow Giftsexy £50
I get asked fairly regularly what my thoughts are on the Glamglow masks which I have honestly only ever tried the once a good few years ago. I can't quite recall what I thought of it and oddly I haven't typed up a review. Keen to see what all the fuss is about I am seriously contemplating purchasing the Glamglow Giftsexy Kit which contains three of the brands best selling masks. £50 for one full size and two deluxe samples does seem a little steep though?

5, Skinesis Rapid Radiance Cleanse by Sarah Chapman £29
I've already made up my mind that the next time I am in Space.NK (most likely this week) that I am going to purchase the Skinesis Rapid Radiance Cleanse by Sarah Chapman. I need a new cleanser, this gets rave reviews and after a quick read up on what this does I am sold - cleanses, exfoliates and absorbs excess oil. The fact that it doubles up as a mask pretty much sealed the deal.

6, Mario Badescu Special Mask For Oily Skin £17.95
A mask created just for oily skin? I'm going to have to try it aren't I? Apparently this mask deeply cleanses the skin, clears and tightens pores as well as de-congesting the skin and soaking up excess oil. I have also read that this can calm blemish prone complexions too. I think I may go for this over the Glamglow pack as it seems better value for money and is also clay based?

7 and 8, Antipodes Skin Care
This is a brand that I forever look at on certain sites and never seem to order from, I do like the sounds of the Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream and the Antipodes Hallelujah Cleanser but still remain to be fully sold. If like myself you have oily skin and have tried or love the brand any recommendations would be great. 

9, Kiehls Midnight Recovery Eye Cream £24.50
My favourite thing to purchase in terms of skin care is eye cream, I am borderline obsessed. A little like lip balm I like to keep a tube on my person at all times - there is no real logic behind my madness other than I'm determined to stay line free for as long as possible! I rather enjoy Kiehls Midnight Recovery Oil so I am hoping the eye cream could also be a winner. It claims to  heal, brighten and tighten. Sounds good to me and unlike other eye creams with similar ingredients it is rather well priced.

Okay spill what is on your skincare wish list?
