This is one brand to keep your eye on and for good reason; it’s outstanding products deliver real results and people are loving them. Their C-Firma Day Serum offers a noticeable improvement to the firmness, tone of the skin, providing an overall luminous complexion you will absolutely love.

OK, I know this is crazy expensive – but if you’ve read any of my reviews you will know I totally rate SkinCeuticals products for their superior results. This brand is in a league of its own. Should your skin look dehydrated, dull, tired and in desperate need of help (as does mine of late), take a leap of faith and invest in this serum. It will not disappoint, and a little goes a long way.

3.Obagi Professional C-20 Serum, £96.49 (30ml), www.cosmedic-clinic.co.uk

Obagi has been the name on top skincare specialists’ lips for some time now and when it comes to skin transformation, people in the know swear by its almost magical properties. I would recommend purchasing an Obagi skincare package for optimal results. However, if you were to buy just one of their products, this is the one. Renowned for its skin brightening and plumping abilities, the Professional Vitamin C Serum is one of the greats.

Another incredible brand has to be Sunday Riley. Their vitamin C Rapid Flash Brightening Serum is a true hero product. Want to tackle fine lines, hyperpigmentation, uneven tone? This cult product does all its name suggests, and a whole lot more besides! I love this.

Should the other products seem a tad pricey (particularly as it’s January and we are all broke), The inkey List’s Vitamin C Serum is a fantastic alternative. Providing a huge 30% L-ascorbic acid, the serum ensures amazing skin brightening, plumping and protective antioxidant benefits, without making a dent in our back accounts. Yay!

5 Kick-Ass Liquid Exfoliants

Hey Lovelies!

Exfoliation is a vital part of maintaining good skincare and realistically we should try to exfoliate twice weekly to ensure our skin stays clear, pores are refined and our complexion remains one of radiant luminosity. However, which type of exfoliator to choose? AHAs can have huge merit, but with so much availability, do you have the right product for your skincare needs?

Today I have rounded up the best liquid exfoliators on the market; all of which will guarantee you keep your beautiful skin looking its best.

Including lactic acid and patented NG-5 Ageless Complex to fight and minimise fine lines and wrinkles ensures this is an incredible anti-aging product. However, this exfoliator has a few more tricks up its sleeve – it greatly improves circulation, elasticity and skin tone, whilst simultaneously fighting free radical damage. One point to remember is that being such an intensive treatment makes it unsuitable for those with sensitive skin.

3.Alpha H Liquid Gold, £33, www.cultbeauty.co.uk

Alpha-H Liquid Gold is a must-have for treating those with damaged or aging skin. This fab exfoliator effectively refines pores, reduces pigmentation and fine lines and is extremely popular amongst us beauty editors. Once you try it, you will see why! N.B. Again, those with very sensitive skin should opt for the Alpha H starter kit (skin Solution for dry/sensitive skin. (£39.99)

4.Elemis Gentle Rose EXFOLIATOR, £31, Elemis

I used to have skin that could take the harshest of products, but these days it takes the slightest drop of something considered ‘average strength’ and my face breaks out in an ugly red rash! This is where Elemis comes in: combining the superior beneficial properties of rose, this gentle exfoliator will feel like a velvet glove on the most sensitive of skin, revealing a beautiful clear and gorgeous complexion you will love!

5. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, £48, dermalogica.co.uk

The good news is that this exfoliant is gentle enough for sensitive skin types. Although this comes in powder form, you add water until you reach the desired consistency. This incredible product combines highly researched and proven ingredients such as papaya, rice enzymes, salicylic acid and their Skin Brightening Complex that work in perfect harmony on your skin to reveal a luminous and youthful complexion fit for any princess (that’s us!)
