Skincare is something most of us think about daily and something that has definitely become more of an importance in our general upkeep and even within our self-care routines. I don’t have a particularly fascinating past when it comes to my skin and skincare; as a teenager, my skin was okay with no major problems, thankfully. It was only since I hit my early 20’s, when I started on a new contraceptive pill when I started to get acne which bothered me enough to go to the doctors. I’ve tried a shed load of different brands and products throughout the years; full on skincare routines with cleansers, toners, moisturizers and an array of creams down to soap and water. But I’ve yet to find something that works – I mean genuinely works – for my skin.
Facial oils have always been a bit hit-and-miss with me. Possibly because I’ve never taken the time to learn how and when to use them properly and possibly because I’ve never found one that’s right for me. I’ve used plenty in the past that just made my face look greasy AF which wasn’t a good look even by my pretty low standards. I was always hesitant at putting facial oils on before make-up, worried that foundation and concealer wouldn’t sit properly and if I wasn’t wearing make-up, would everyone just think I was super sweaty? What’s the deal here?
I love trying new products and having a blog has allowed me to try a whole range of products which I probably wouldn’t have heard of before, which I’m very grateful for. PAIRFUM is a chic collection of organic products, which range from skincare to candles, room sprays and more. With quite a focus on scents, all their products come in a range of scents which are fresh, feminine or floral and would leave your room (or body!) smelling absolutely delicious. I was kindly sent two of the PARIFUM skin care products to try and test and here are my thoughts!
