What is skincare cocktailing?
Just like how a delicious cocktail is made by mixing different drinks together, skincare cocktailing combines complementary ingredients by mixing different skincare products in your routine! The process targets skin concerns that are not shifting after many uses of a singular product by mixing and matching hard-working ingredients to give your skin the attention it deserves.
If you want to upgrade an ineffective routine, or are simply just looking to save time in the morning or evening, skincare cocktailing is the new trend you need to try!
How to combine your moisturising gels.
Our hydrating moisturising gels are loved by SBC Skincare customers due to their lightweight and versatile formulas. There’s a moisturising gel for everyone! They can be used as face and body moisturisers, serums, hydrating face masks, or as makeup primers. But did you know that you could create your own skincare cocktail using SBC Skincare’s iconic moisturising gels?
Our skin-friendly and water-based formulas can be mixed and matched for successful results. Simply pump a dollop of each gel onto your palms and mix together to create the ultimate skincare concoction! Here’s the routine we would recommend:
- Firstly, cleanse with your go-to SBC Skincare cleanser.
- Pump a dollop of each moisturising gel into your palms and mix.
- Finally, smooth your skincare cocktail onto your skin.
- You can also combine our gels with your favourite cream moisturiser to lock in extra hydration!
