Natural Shopping Guides: Irene’s ‘Luxe To Less’ Skincare Routine

I love a bit of luxury, but I also love a bargain so I wanted to start sharing with you some of my Luxe to Less beauty products. I really don’t believe in going all fancy all the time and there are so many products that work so well without the price tag. When it comes to skincare – here are my fav bargains and my fave payday products.

Today, I take you through some of the products I have that range from the luxurious to the most affordable.

I love a bit of luxury but I also love a bargain. I call this little blogpost Luxe to Less because you could also call it payday versus non-pay day products.

I currently use the Biologi Bc Refresh Cleanser, I ABSOLUTELY love it and I am obsessed with it at the moment but let’s admit it: it is definitely a luxury product. Sometimes, I love to mix it with another cleanser that adds a bit of exfoliation: the Mineral Fusion Creamy Brightening Cleanser. Made with volcanic ash it helps to gently exfoliate the skin.

The Sodashi Rejuvenating Face Mist might be the most luxurious toner I have ever tried and believe me I have tried many! The floral scent is subtle and refreshing. When I run low of this one, I simply switch for the Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses® Floral Toner, I love its delicious geranium smell. Both of these toners are great for sensitive and delicate skin.

Even though I am not really a big fan of moisturisers and definitely more into serums, I am an adept of the slugging method (read my blog about it just here). This method consists in sealing all your skincare routine by using a rich balm. I alternate between the Egyptian Magic All Purpose Balm and the Leahlani Beauty Balm.

Eye Creams
The Mukti Age Defiance Eye Serum is perfect to treat fine lines and wrinkles. It has all of the cosmeceutical product properties with active peptides in a natural organic base. Listen to my podcast with Mukti, the founder of the brand – she tells you all you need to know about it and more specifically that it works best if you don’t apply a huge amount of it!
Another really similar product: Juniper Skincare Revitalising Eye Cream, the particularity of this product is that it is a practitioner-only brand as well which means that this product is often used as part of a skin treatment (facial).
