Beauty Products of 2013 - Skincare

The other day I shared with you my favourite makeup products of the year now I have my skincare favourites to share. I've tried lots of skincare this year and in the Summer I treated myself to a good few items whilst in Paris so picking out just a few products was pretty hard. 
Starting with a more recent favourite in the L'oreal Absolute Makeup Remover Eye & Lip, this removes eye makeup so fast and well without leaving any residue behind. The other cleansing favourite is The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, a great affordable cleanser which removes makeup and leaves my skin feeling lovely. 
The stand out favourite which I picked up whilst I was in Paris is the La Roche Posay Serozinc, a great basic toner which really seems to help calm down blemishes and doesn't irritate the skin. The other being the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner, leaves leaves the skin feeling smooth and looking glowing without being harsh.
I finally discovered a great affordable eye cream in The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream, this is a great basic eye cream which leaves the skin feeling soft. A stand out product for me at the start of the year was the Origins Vitazing SPF 15 moisturiser, leaves gives just the right amount of moisture and leaves a slight tint to the skin. 
I've been really into oils this year and I can definitely see the difference they have made to my skin. One that i've been loving the most is the Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil, this makes my skin feel so soft and seems to be helping even out my skintone. For face masks a true stand out has been the Super Facialist By Una Brennan Pore Purrifying Face Mask, this really clears out the skin without being drying, it's definitely the best affordable clay mask i've tried. The finally favourite isn't so much a skincare product; the Origins A Peace Of Mind, this is great for using before bed to leave me feeling relaxed, it is effective and a great product. 

So those have been my favourite skincare products this year. What have been some of your favourite skincare products this year?
