I’m very honored and excited to be guest blogging here at Mind of a Diva. Jen was ever so kind to ask me to be a guest blogger and I agreed. I’m Sharon from Sharon’s Makeup Diary. I started blogging because I love makeup, skin care, jewelry & fashion although I mainly focus of beauty stuff. Now,I’m not a pro or anything like that but I thought I would start off by sharing some of my favorite and affordable skin care products from the drugstore. Yes I love high-end too but we don’t necessarily need to break the bank or go out of budget to have beautiful radiant skin.
1. Nivea Visage Pure and Natural Facial Cleansing Wipes
These wipes are my holy grail,I use them to refresh the skin and mainly to remove my makeup. They are free from parabens, silicone, colorants, mineral oils, and alcohol plus they cleanse, tone, and hydrate my skin. After using them my face doesn’t feel dry at all. They remove any type of makeup and waterproof mascara. My eyes can be a little sensitive but these are just perfect. The ones I use are suitable for all skin types and contain Bio Argan Oil which is a source of Vitamin E and Aloe vera which is well-known for its hydrating and caring properties.
2. Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Double Eye Makeup Remover
This effectively removes waterproof mascara and eye makeup without irritating the eyes. It also claims to be suitable for contact lenses wearers. So far the best eye makeup remover I have used to date and what I love the most is it’s almost an exact dupe of Nars eye makeup remover which is about 5 times the price of Nivea Visage. I can tell you I will be sticking to the Nivea one as its so great and less than a fiver.
3. Olay Essentials Complete Care Sensitive SPF15 Day Fluid
Perfect for sensitive skin ,it hydrates the skin very well. Skin looks radiant and feels soft with continued use. Another big plus is that it contains SPF15 and gives you 24 hours of moisturizer without clogging pores
4. Garnier Skin care Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energizing Gel Scrub
With continued use this everyday face scrub will give you a radiant glow. This one is particularly for oily skin prone to imperfections but I think combination skin can give it a go as well. It contains salicylic acid which deeply cleanses impurities,tightens pores and helps protect against appearance of imperfections. It also contains extracts of grapefruit, pomegranate and vitamin C which effectively cleanses and gives skin a boost of radiance.
5. The Body Shop Honey and Oat 3 in 1 Scrub and Mask
It cleanses, polishes, and moisturizer in one with oatmeal grains and Community Trade Organic honey. This is for Normal/Dry skin and can be used once or twice a week. This doesn’t dry out the skin. It smells delicious and looks just like oats, making it tempting to eat. It’s very gentle on the skin and after every use I am left with soft, supple, and radiant skin. I really love this mask and I will sure be purchasing backup for the upcoming cold months.
