I've made no secret of the poor state of my 2017 skin. Over summer I tried out a Garnier micellar face wash and it made things ten times worse. It was just straight up awful. I really hate not finishing products, but I've put this in the back of my bathroom cupboard in an attempt to forget that it ever existed because it gave me major spot explosions.
Going from that to Korres' Olympus Tea cleansing foam* has been a DREAM. I mean, I've accepted the fact that my 20s are a spot-ridden time in my life, but I now have so many fewer spots than I have done over the last six months. It doesn't really foam up for me (I'm not sure if I've got a dud or I've managed to mess this up somehow), but it is hella creamy and thick which makes it so soothing for my skin. I've been using it every morning and evening to start my day and take my makeup of at the end of it. It's totally suitable for my sensitive eyes and skin AND gets all my makeup off. I love it so much and I already know I'm going to be full on devastated when I run out. I mean, I rate it up there with my Liz Earle cleanse and polish. For real.
Paired with it, we have the Olympus Tea emulsion cream*. Although you can use this as a more creamy cleanser and makeup remover on its own, I like to use it as a second cleanse that's a little more moisturising than the first. I dab it on, rub it in and give it a minute or two to really sink in before rinsing it off. This makes my skin feel SO SOFT, and it's a part of my skincare routine that I was really missing before.
These products were sent to me as samples, but all of my opinions are my own. I know I've totally gushed over them but it's because I full on love them, and they're currently sat in pride of place on my sink.
