Favourite Highend Skincare Products

I am a HUGE fan of all things skincare so today I thought I would riffle through my ever growing skincare draw and pick out my favourite highend skincare products! I will also be doing a highstreet version of this too very very soon. 

Estee Lauder Take It Away Makeup Remover - The most beautiful makeup remover ever to hit my skin, it gets rid of ever scrap of makeup including waterproof, It's very softening & calming to the skin whilst also feeling hydrating and cooling, love the formula is it's like a gel meets cream, the smell reminds me of when you go to the seaside and take that first breath of fresh sea salty air, it's just honestly gorgeous. Couldn't recommend this enough, works a treat the only thing I will say is it's one the pricey side but I LOVE it.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream - This is honestly a product made in heaven, it works on dry lips (hence why I bought it, as I have the most dry horrible lips in the world), spots, cuts and if you have a cold like I do now whilst I type this (I know it's JULY what the hell is happening to me), it's amazing at popping under your nose to stop it going bright red. I wouldn't say the texture of this 'cream' is a cream it's more of an oily balm, once melted glides on, you literally need the teeny tiniest amount as it goes a hell of a long way. I use this all year round and ALWAYS have one in my skincare draw (I will be do a what's inside my skincare & makeup draw soon).

Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment Cream - Anything with Avocados in & I'm sold, I've talked about this eye cream time and time again, so I won't bore's the most hydrating eye cream I've EVER used & I've used a LOT of eyecreams over the years, it's cooling and calming around the eyes and just keeps them so hydrated it's unreal, I use this every morning and night & my eyes feel so much brighter, healthier and all round less tired after this. I'd highly HIGHLY recommend you try this as it's honestly *places hand on heart* the best eyecream EVER EVER EVER.

I'm very VERY fussy when it comes to moisturisers, but the two highend wise that have stood out to me have been my trust....

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Gel - My holy grail moisturiser, I've raved about this countless of times, it's so plumping and hydrating to the skin, my skin is a very complicated and annoying thing I have dry to combination skin, I get oily on my chin and around the sides of my nose, but dry around my cheeks, neck, forehead, and top of my nose (told you it's weird) and this seems to work the treat on all of my skin problems, it's so calming, soothing and moisturising on my skin, I LOVE the formula as it's a gel meets cream, I could ramble on about this even more but if you want to read a more in-depth review of this moisturiser you can have a read of it here. I wouldn't really class this moisturise as highend and sky high price wise, but Clinique is well Clinique.....something very special that everyone should turn to for their skincare worries.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream - The one moisturiser that I've seemed to fall head over heals in love with, it's a very thick moisturiser, but once massaged glides like a balm onto the skin, it feels hydrating all day and my skin looks SO much healthier, brighter and a lot more 'me' when I use this, I honestly couldn't fault this, the only thing I don't like about this product is the extremely heavy price tag, coming in at £70 PER POT!!! it isn't cheap in the slightest.....but I guess as it's Charlotte Tilbury & it's used on the likes of Kate Moss & Cara Delving we can let the price tag slide.....I will say though that this is one very expensive moisturiser that works an absolute treat. I feel like my skin craves it sometimes. More about charlotte's famous Magic Cream here I did I much more in-depth review.

There you have it my Favourite Highend Skincare Products.
