Skincare Wishlist For London

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

With my move to London, I will be much closer to Boots et al and have much easier access to several brands. And like any good skincare junky, I made a skincare wishlist. It’s full of stuff I want to try, brands I am interested in and products that will be bought the minute I have arrived.


Boots Botanics In Germany I have easy access to natural, affordable skincare. I hope that Boots Botanics is similar in quality, as from my browse online the price definitely is comparable to Alverde.

The Ordinary Arguably one of the most hyped skincare brands this year, I am so excited to visit the stores and buy a boatload worth of skincare. I also want to get matched for the serum foundation. Here is my current wishlist:

  • 100% Cold-Pressed Rosehip Oil
  • Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
  • Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%
  • One of the many retinol products
  • A Vitamin C formulation
  • The Serum Foundation


Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream SPF 35 I am a big fan of the Kiehl’s hair products. And when I restocked, I got a sample of the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream and promptly tried it. it was love at first application. But because I want a day cream with an SPF, I will buy the new version with SPF. Especially in winter, I do not want to apply a dedicated SPF. I know, I know, SPF is mandatory. But I know that in London in winter, I will not be putting on another product for the sun.

Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil There are quite a few German bloggers who rave about this cleansing oil. And because my The Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Balm is running low, I need a new first cleanse (read oil cleanse). the price point, especially for 200ml, is amazing and I’ve never tried a liquid oil cleanser.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser And this other hyped product will be my new second cleanse. I’m really excited to see how this will perform and if you can use it without the hot cloth, as I don’t use flannels currently.

Alpha-H Liquid Gold One of the majorly popular/recommended acids around, I will definitely slap this on my face, once my Glow Tonic has run out.


Finally, besides the above-mentioned brands and products, there is another big pile of things I want to try. These are in theory part of my skincare wishlist, but instead of spending ca 1000 words explaining why I want to buy them, I’ll simply leave you the list. If there is a product that you can recommend, have tried or I am missing something you think I should definitely try, please comment below.

  • Kiehl’s Tumeric and Cranberry Seed
  • La Roche-Posay Redermic R Eyes
  • La Roche-Posay Effaclar-H Moisturizer
  • Clarins Beauty flash balm
  • Dr Jart Ceramidin Liquid or Gel
  • Clinique Take The Day off Balm
  • Aesop Parsley Seed Mask
  • Caudalie Overnight Detox Oil
  • Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask
