Worth The Price Tag | Luxury Skincare

Today I wanted to talk about luxury skincare and in particular, the items that I feel are worth the money. There's so much choice nowadays that sometimes I feel I get sucked in without properly thinking about what I need so read on to check out the six skincare products that I love and would recommend as part of a luxury skincare routine...

Cleanser - Ren 1 Minute Facial - £32
I absolutely love how easy this cleanser is to use and the immediate effects it gives. I'm not crazy about the smell (think mouldy oranges!) but I can totally get over that if it means that my skin feels as fresh as it does when I use this. You only need a really tiny bit so the tube lasts for ages and ages.

Toner - Alpha H Liquid Gold - £33.50
This is the newest edition to my skincare routine thanks to the M&S beauty advent calendar! I'd heard so much hype about the liquid gold that I thought it couldn't possibly live up to its reputation but it really does. It's overtaken my Pixi Glow Tonic in my nighttime skincare routine and I don't even feel guilty!

Moisturiser - Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream - £80
I have to stress that I only have a half size version of this as I know that £80 is a crazy amount to spend on a moisturiser if it's not 100% necessary. Having said that, this is hands down the best moisturiser that I've ever used and I love everything about it. If you are looking to invest a little bit more in your skincare then Elemis is definitely the way to go.

Face Mask - Glam Glow - £39
I've tried quite a few face masks in the past few years and I'm convinced that Glam Glow is the brand for me. Cheaper ones tend to irritate my skin and although I love making my own from natural ingredients, it's nice to indulge once in a while.

Skin Resurfacer - Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy - £40
The Skin Doctors Gammy Hydroxy resurfacing cream is definitely the product I've repurchased the most and for good reason too. It gives great effects if you've got scarred, uneven or pigmented skin and it doesn't irritate at all. I use it before I go to bed or as a mask if I feel like my skin really needs it.

Body Lotion - Cowshed Grumpy Cow - £20
I love the smell of this body lotion so much and the consistency is something that a lot of other body lotions don't live up to. It's particularly great in the winter time when you're skin needs a bit of extra love and care.

Thanks for reading :)*

What's your favourite luxury skincare item?



  1. I'm all about splurging on skin care! most of the times, I find higher end skin care works better with my skin.

  2. I got the Alpha H Liquid Gold in the M&S beauty advent calendar too and I really do love it! I also love the Emma Hardie cleanser from there and think I'll be buying the full size once my sample is finished!
