If you read my introductory post to my new Tria device (which is all going very well – I’ll update relatively soon) then you’ll know I’ve culled my skincare routine to ensure I can accurately review the Tria. Therefore, I thought I’d share with you what I’m using. I use either an oil or a wipe (naughty) to remove the bulk of my make-up, then apart from masks a couple of times a week, all I’m using are these two products from Cetaphil; I use the Gentle Skin Cleanser to cleanse, I then use the Tria before finishing with the Moisturising Lotion.
I’ll start with the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser which is like a creamy gel that you can either use as a wash-off or a wipe-off and I’ve been favouring the former. It’s a rich gel that feels good on the skin and moves around fluidly, allowing just enough slip for a massaging cleanse. It then washes off easily without leaving any residue whilst leaving skin very clean and comfortable. It’s a fantastic choice for anyone with sensitive skin or dry skin conditions as it’s a very light and gentle formula. It’s been a great choice for me as it doesn’t anger my spots, but it does settle my dryness, so it’s a seriously good cleanser for anyone with troubled skin really!
If you’re just going for one product out of these two, make it the Moisturising Lotion which is an extremely nourishing yet light product that has really impressed me by moisturising my skin again without aggravating my spots. I also struggle with finding a cream that nourishes effectively without causing spots, but this one has totally nailed it. The problem I have with skincare is that I get bored, and pair that with the fact that I get sent a lot of skincare products that excite me, and you have yourself a very erratic skincare routine that changes all the time. Having said that, I’m hoping to stick with this duo (and the Tria) for as long as possible and they’ll definitely be the pair I return to when my skin is playing up as they really do balance everything out, so really recommend them if you’re suffering from tricky skin. They’re both available from Boots for £8.99 each – link.
