I thought I would finally give you a post of my collective skincare routine. I use these every day and you would have seen that I purchased most of these when I went through and did a skincare edit.
This has been a long time coming, but after a few comments from friends and acquaintances about my skin I thought it was time I shared.
The products above are the products I use in the morning- starting with the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. You’ve seen this stuff everywhere and it really is worth the raves. I massage this into my face before jumping into the shower and it starts my day off perfectly, and you really can’t complain about the way this stuff smells- I love it.
I use the Clarins Peach Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser after my shower, to make sure I get any soap or shampoo that could be left on my face. This is targeted at normal and dry skin so it really doesn’t strip your face and I love the feeling of this to really wake you up.
The Derma Sukin Daily Gentle Lotion is a great one if you have normal to sensitive skin, I prefer light moisturisers during the day as I am lucky enough to have avoided dry skin and this one is just that, it makes the perfect base for your primer or foundation. It comes in a massive bottle too, so I am lucky to not be worrying about that anytime soon!
I finish my morning routine off with the Clinique All About Eyes Serum, this is a tester- but it is lasting for so long! I really do enjoy this and will most likely repurchase as it has made the world of difference to my routine. It is cooling, depuffing and really gives you the extra boost to help you keep your eyes open.
My night routine is quite different, and features completely different products, but I like to do this every night with the added extra of a mask for weekly use.
If I am feeling lazy I will probably use my Oskia Cleansing Gel but usually I reach for The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. This is something that really makes me feel relaxed for the night, and cleans extra well- I love to use a good bout of this especially after the gym.
I then go over and moisturise with the Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator which I have come to adore. Seriously this stuff will change your face, it will change your holy grail of moisturisers. It is a gel type cream and smooths over, hydrating for hours and making your skin super soft.
I use the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronised Complex (another tester, but I swear I get one of these every time I repurchase my BB Glow, no complaints here cause I love the stuff, and it lasts forever.) This I love for the pure luxury of it, but it also helps with dark circles and keeping your undereye area nice and supple.
Lastly I will add a touch of the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream on my lips and cuticles. It keeps them from chapping or drying out and also fixes any other problem you may have (burns, dryness, bruises- it does the lot)
Sometimes I tend to use a mask, at the moment I have been using the Formula 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure Mask to help with clogged pores and skin perfecting, but I have also got my eye on the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask (I’ll be in to Farmers, watch this space).
I hope you enjoyed this little ramble of my updated skincare lineup, the edits will continue (The Antipodes Mask will probably come up next), so please let me know if you enjoyed it or would like to see more!
Disclaimer: I have normal, combination skin and the products I use highly rely on this, if you have sensitive skin or dry skin please make sure the products work for you before using, testers like I have above are always a good option if you are unsure. All products mentioned here were purchased by myself.
