I Tried £200 Worth Of Bad Habit Skincare & Here Are My Honest Thoughts

Designed by Meg O'Donnell
If, like us, you spend the majority of your free time scrolling through TikTok, you've probably already spotted shiny new skincare brand, Bad Habit, in among the DIY aloe vera hair masks and skin icing videos. Dreamed up by influencer Emma Chamberlain and available at Morphe, the 10-strong collection of moisturisers, cleansers, face masks and more is taking the internet by storm. But reviewers aren't just swayed by the very cute packaging.
Like much-loved brands such as The Ordinary and The Inkey List, the formulas and ingredients mean serious business and target specific skin concerns. Emma has spoken about experiencing acne a lot, so she knows what goes into making a transformative skincare product.
In the line, you'll find AHAs and BHAs (exfoliating acids, such as glycolic and salicylic acid, helpful for spots), peptides (proteins which repair damaged skin), hyaluronic acid (for deep hydration) and vitamin C for brightening and protecting skin from the environment. They are just a handful of proven ingredients in the collection which dermatologists and experts always recommend for healthy, happy skin.
As a millennial with breakouts and the odd patch of eczema now and again, I was intrigued by Bad Habit's promises, not to mention the snappy tagline: "Skincare that's good to your skin, even when you're not." It's safe to say that during the pandemic, many of us have become a little lax when it comes to skin, from not drinking enough water to not cleansing properly. Lately, I'm one of them. So could Bad Habit solve my skin woes?
Ahead, I tried £200 worth of Bad Habit products and here's my honest verdict as a beauty editor.
