One Year Later ... Our Ultimate Top 10 Skincare Picks!

Wednesday, 15 September 2010 by Lydia Parafianowicz
We all know the importance of good skincare, and investing in top quality products is undoubtedly worth it for your skins’ health. If you research the ingredients of many products, you might be shocked to find out what you’re feeding your skin. Chemicals like phthalates and acids like sulfates are often included, not to mention preservatives like parabens. It’s always best to read ingredient lists before purchasing anything, and if you can, try to make the switch to more natural products that are as chemical-free as possible. Here’s a list of my top 10 favourite skin care products – most of which are derived from natural ingredients and eco-friendly formulas.

1. Elemental Herbology Eye Elixir
Works wonders at quelling dark circles and puffy bags under your eyes, not to mention reducing wrinkles.

2. Bella Lucce Acai Antioxidant Body Creme
This super rich (yet lightweight) cream not only smells delicious, but absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling sinfully smooth.

3. John Masters Organics Bearberry Oily Skin Balancing Face Wash
If my skin could say 'thank you,' I'm sure it would be doing so after I switched to this oil-absorbing face wash for summer.

4. Shaveworks’ The Cool Fix
Fabulous for healing razor burn and cooling off your skin post-shave.

5. Ole Henriksen Walnut Complexion Scrub
Exfoliating my oily skin is a total necessity, and I love this walnut scrub from Ole Henriksen. It smells nutty and delicious, and completely eliminates unwanted dead skin buildup.

6. Mamma Mio Get Waisted Body Shaper
I was originally very skeptical that this cream would work, since it promised to tone my tummy. But I can honestly say that after 30 days I notice a clear difference in my stomach and abs!

7. CLEAN Warm Cotton Bath and Shower Gel
Luscious smooth skin starts in the shower, with a yummy, quenching body wash. I love the scent of this CLEAN shower gel - totally a must-have!

8. [A’Kin] Express Purifying Facial Masque
When your skin is in need of a little pick-me-up, opt for this facial masque. Ten minutes later and your visage will be looking bright and refreshed!

9. Rosa Fina ‘Secret Essence’ Face & Decolletage Oil
This 100 per cent natural product is highly moisturizing, healing, collagen-boosting and helps restore plumpness.

10. Exuberance Essential Beauty Evolution Facial Exfoliant
The hint of maple syrup in the scent of this exfoliant is just delicious. The thick, rich wash is a must-have in my beauty regime.
