There are my 2014 skincare favourites, no toner or spot treatment as I don't really use either but here are a couple of skincare products that I love but didn't quite make the cut: 

The Bodhi + Birch Neroli Facial Oil is gorgeous but I just prefer the rose version most of the time; also I love my clarisonic but I haven't been using it as much as I was last year. 

What skincare products will be on your 2014 favourites list? Have you tried any of the products I have mentioned?

    1. I think feelunique.com stocks both and they have worldwide shipping x

  12. Such a useful post! I always struggle when it comes to skincare (that and I'm just lazy!). Great selection of products!

  13. Nice list! I'm a huge fan of both the bodhi & birch oils and want to try more Botanicals products this year x

  14. Bioderma skin care products are my all time favourites. I don't really use spot treatments either, because they dry off my skin.
