Today I thought I would do a skincare routine blog, I do change-up the products quite a bit but for the most part this is what I stick to.
In the morning my skin care is very simple and easy. All I do is apply my moisturizer and eye cream. The moisturiser that I have been using and loving at the moment is the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Moisturizer, my skin loves this stuff its such a good day time moisturiser as it is so thin. For my eye cream I am using a Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream I do really like it but I don’t love it. And that is it, I don’t cleanse my face in the morning just because I don’t think my skin is that dirty in the morning as the only thing I have done is sleep.
In the evening I do a little more to my skin. To take off my make up I will put some of my Garnier Micellar Water on to some cotton pads and remove my make up. I love the idea of micellar water, I have tried the Simple one but I find it stings my eyes so I don’t use it anymore. I know lots of people love the Bioderma Micellar Water but the only way I can get that is online, and I just find it a lot easier to pick up the Garnier one at my local Boots and I find it works perfectly of me. After that I will cleanse and I have been loving my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I love the idea of washing it off with a hot cloth it’s just so nice and relaxing, I use a flannel as I find the Liz Earle Muslim Cloths smell a bit weird afterwards. I have recently been using a serum it is the Aveda Tulasara Bright Serum. I have only used it a couple of times, I do really like it and how it feels on my skin. Finally, I will go in with my moisturizer and eye cream. If my skin isn’t too dry I will just use my Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Moisturizer, but if my skin is feeling quite dry I will use my Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask. This is mainly because it is a night-time moisturiser and is more intensive during the night, I won’t use this every night just because my skin can feel a little sticky afterwards but when my skin needs it I will use it.
I will exfoliate my face once a week with my Clarasonic, I haven’t found a exfoliate which I have been loving therefore, I have been using my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish at the moment which works perfectly for me. If I don’t exfoliate my skin with my Clarasonic one week I will use a face mask. I was using a Lush Face Mask but for some reason it made my jaw line really itchy. I thought I wasn’t washing it off properly but I checked and I was, so I am guessing I am allergic to some ingredient. Then I found out Body Shop have come out with lots more face mask’s and I had to try them out so I bought the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. I have really been liking this mask and highly recommend it.
