My skin has been confusing me lately. For years I thought I had oily skin but I've been wrong for the whole entire time. I've been sucking all the moisture out of my skin by using products specifically for oily skin, when really my skin is quite dry. I've worked out that because of the mattifying products my skin has been over compensating for the lack of moisture in bid to create more oil to help the skin.

I have been incredibly silly, I should of paid attention to the fact that when I wake up in the morning my skin isn't oily at all, even my T-Zone. I am happy enough to admit that I have been a fool in regards to paying attention to my skin, and it does have my sincere apologies.

My skin all over is sensitive and dry, I even have psoriasis on my scalp and my elbows which isn't pleasant to have. But in regards to my daily routine of looking after my skin on my face I use just three products! Which you can see above.

Products used;

L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Cleaning & Perfecting Milk

L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Velvety-soft Toner

Palmers Cocoa Butter Daily Calming Facial Lotion

  1. I too recently learned about oily skin compensating, it's helped my skin a lot knowing this. I've only tried the Micellar water from the Skin Perfection range but I want to try more things from them.

  2. I thought the exact same thing about my skin! I tend to get a bit oily on my forehead in the middle of the day, but the rest of my skin is so dry. I've been working on correcting this and my skin has gotten noticeably better. Glad I'm not the only one!

  3. I've had the exact same revelation recently too and I'm trying to persuade my mum and sister of the exact same thing - trying to tell them that oily skin still needs moisturiser has been the hardest. I really want to try a cleansing milk and this one looks lovely!

  4. I've recently started using Clinique and the moisture is amazing, I'll definitely give these products a go they look fab! xo

  5. I got the micellar water by l'oreal and I reviewed it the other day! however I should really get the other two to match the collection
