It’s been a while now since the last time I updated you with my skincare routine (beginning of summer I believe), and you’ve been asking me quite a lot lately on social media, so I really thought it was time to write a proper skincare post showing and reviewing all the products I’m using and loving at the moment.
As you may know by now, I’m a skincare addict, since I love to try and review every single product I think that could work great on my skin. Another thing you should know is that I always look for more natural-based products since I have really sensitive skin and it easily reacts to chemical products (it wouldn’t be the first time that I get a chemical burn on my face because of something I’ve tried).
I’m lucky enough to have the chance to work with skincare brands once in a while, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not being 100% honest with my reviews. In fact, I’ve said no to several brands in the past because their products didn’t fulfil my expectations, but I’ve also had a really good experience with others. Thanks to some collaborations I got to discover, try and review brands that I’m currently a happy and satisfied customer of.
Which are my top products and favourite brands? That’s what I’m going to talk about today but, first of all, I want to make clear that I might have worked with some of the mentioned brands below, but that this blog post is not sponsored by any of them in any way, and that all opinions are my own.
I followed this brand on Instagram for such a long time and I really wanted to give it a try because all their products looked really nice and they got really good reviews as well, but I never decided to actually get something from them until I got a collaboration proposal. Perfect!
I was sent a package with a few of their most famous products and, after using them for a while, I could happily say I was in love with the brand. My favourite products? They are focused on scrubs made out of natural products to exfoliate and moisturise your skin, so it feels soft and with a beautiful natural glow. I really liked their Original Coffee Scrub, since it’s their most iconic product and now I know why. Such a simple coffee-based product that smells amazing and that leaves such a beautiful glow. But, my ultimate favourite product from them is the Face Scrub. I have never used such a gentle but effective facial scrub. As mentioned before, I have pretty sensitive skin, so sometimes face scrubs can be pretty harsh, but this one was such a great surprise and I haven’t stopped using it since then. It has the right amount of scrub and the right amount of natural moisturising ingredients. I’m sure I’ll be a loyal customer of Frank Body because of it.
I discovered this brand at a TK Max while I was in Berlin. I was in the beauty/skincare section looking for affordable products to try next and this brand caught my eye. I got their iconic moisturizer because I needed it and I liked the fact that it also was natural-based.
I was so happy with this moisturiser that I started purchasing more of their products online (because there are no stockists here in Barcelona), and I love every single one of them. But, my favourite ones are definitely the iconic Moisturiser and their Face Mist. Both are from the same range and they’re so gentle but effective. They really moisturise the skin but without feeling too thick or greasy on the skin, which I really appreciate.
Fun fact: I am so in love with the brand that it’s definitely not the first time that I talk (definitely not sponsored at all) about them on social media. One day, I was scrolling down Instagram and I saw an old photo of mine in front of a mirror using one of their products. And, guess what? It was an advert of them. Obviously, I contacted them directly since they didn’t ask at any time to use my photo for commercial profits, and even though their product appears on the photo that doesn’t mean they have the rights to use it. But, it all turned out in getting the chance to work with them and I couldn’t be happier.
Aloe Vera has so many benefits and it’s one of the best things you can put on your skin, but I tried so many different brands and I never found any I liked. I feel like they mix such a great product with not as good ones, like harsh fragrances and other chemicals, making the formula sticky, extremely scented, and definitely not delicate enough for my sensitive skin.
I almost gave up on finding the perfect Aloe Vera when someone from my family gifted me this Pure Aloe Vera Gel from the brand Atlantia. Since the very first use, I was gratefully surprised about it. A natural and subtle smell, light on your skin, moisturising, and not sticky. I can’t even remember how many of these I’ve had since then, because I use it to moisturise my whole body.
This is another brand I discovered through a collaboration. One day I got a proposal email and after researching a bit about the company and their products I said yes. I’m so happy I did because their Pink Clay Mask is the best face mask I have ever used. Indeed, I have to get another one soon because it’s almost empty by now.
I can assure you that this product has helped me so much (really) in finally getting clear skin. I never had severe acne, but I did have some spots and not a smooth skin texture. I used it once or twice a week for a long while and I definitely saw a huge difference on my skin that I know it’s thanks to this face mask. It is soft, smells like heaven, not irritating, yet effective. This one is their signature and most famous product, but they recently launched a range with more variety that I’m really willing to try soon.
These are all the “top” products and brands I wanted to talk about for now. Obviously, I’ve found other great products from other brands, but these are definitely the winners, not only because of their amazing signature products, but also because the brand itself stocks with other great ones that I’ve also tried or I’m willing to.
Have you ever tried any of the products or brands I’ve mentioned? Would you recommend me any other? Definitely tell me so in the comments down below and I’ll be glad to read!
Love and lipstick ❤
