My 2015 Skincare Favorites

This is the second part of my 2015 Favorites series. In my first post I featured My 2015 Makeup Products (read full post here). This post is all about the skin. I do not try out too many products for my face, so most of the products mentioned here are probably my all time favorite skincare products.

2015 favourites, 2015 skincare favourites,


My 2015 Skincare Favorites, bioderma micellar water

My 2015 Skincare Favorites, the body shop vitamin c facial claansing polish

I think those of you who follow my blog regularly would know that I am in love with Bioderma Micellar Water for taking off my makeup. This probably is my 5 or the 6th bottle. It is very gentle, yet it removes all traces of makeup from my face. I have been using The Body Shop Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish for years now. I love that it is a little scrubby and it deep cleanses my skin without stripping out the moisture.


My 2015 Skincare Favorites, forest essential fruit scrub

Masks and scrubs are one thing that I like to experiment with more often. This year I have been loving the Forest Essentials Hand Pounded Organic Fruit Scrub. It is very gritty but completely natural. It gives my skin a nice glow after I have used it.

Facial Oil

My 2015 Skincare Favorites, kiehls midnight recovery concentrate

Nothing beats the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate for me when it comes to facial oils. I have tried two more from other high-end brands, but always go back to this one when I want my skin to feel moisturized and glowy the next morning.


My 2015 Skincare Favorites, avene rich compensating cream

My 2015 Skincare Favorites, loreal aqua essence

Surprisingly, I did try out a few different moisturizers this year, but I love the Avene Rich Compensating Cream. I kept my skin moisturized the whole day. Even though it is a thick, rich cream, it did not feel very heavy on my skin. Since it does not contain SPF, I mix a few drops of the Loreal UV Perfect Aqua Esscence with it during the day.

My 2015 Skincare Favorites, olay 7 effects night cream

For night time, I recently started using the Olay 7 effects night cream. I love the texture of this one. It is an excellent moisturizer for nighttime.

Eye Cream

My 2015 Skincare Favorites, kiehls creamy eye cream

I used the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado two years back and used to really like it. Then I started noticing dark circles around my eyes so switched to some other eye cream. But now since my dark circles have gone, I have switched back to this one. It is a thick but water based cream for keeping the under eye area moisturized.


My 2015 Skincare Favorites, macadamia deep repair masque

In 2015 I did not try out too many hair masques but after I got my hair coloured, the softness and shine just disappeared from my hair. So I tried the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque. I apply it for 20-30 minutes before I shampoo my hair and it leaves my hair very soft. I love its fragrance too.


My 2015 Skincare Favorites, d&g perfume

I had never heard of this D&G No. 3 L’Imperatrice fragrance before. But I decided to give it a go when I was at the London duty free and this was on discount. I absolutely loved this one. I think I wore it every single day to work this past year. It is fruity but has a slightly musky note to it.

So these were my skincare favorites in 2015. Do let me know your most used products.

    Do we have to use the macadamia hair mask before washing the hair? Isn’t it to be used after wash like a conditioning treatment.
