My Sanctuary Skincare Saviours!
For as long as I can remember I've suffered with combination skin that becomes really greasy incredibly quickly yet feels horribly tight if I don't moisturise. SO annoying. I've also wasted a huge amount of money on brands aimed at combination skin that have just left my face feeling even oilier or sometimes even drier, so as you can imagine I am totally over the moon now I've finally found some products that actually suit me! The super saviours that I speak of come in the form of Sanctuary's Fresh-Faced Purifying Wash and Matte Perfecting Hydra Lotion. I've been using these for nearly two weeks now and I am so impressed with the results!
The face wash is just a really gentle, ever so slightly foaming formula that softly cleanses my face leaving it feeling clean and smooth. I follow this cleansing with a pump of the milky textured moisturiser , which feels totally different to any other moisturiser I've used. It's quite a thin, almost runny liquid in contrast to some of my other more balmy products and melts onto the skin really nicely leaving a lovely soft base for my primer and makeup. Just be careful not to rub it in for too long as I've noticed that the liquid begins to slightly congeal forming a few little white blobs if I do this, so just smooth it over your face and let it sink in. The bit I love most about this product is that it prevents my face from becoming shiny for so much longer than any other moisturisers I've tried. My makeup now lasts a good few hours before I even think about reapplying powder and I'm so much less self conscious about having a greasy nose and forehead! I really can't recommend these products to you enough, and if you suffer with combination skin like I do they may just be the skin saviours you're looking for!
