My skincare routine.

Hello everyone, sorry I haven't been that active on the blogging front lately, I've had lots of revision and homework to do, and honestly I haven't known what to post!

Anyway, I thought I would share my skincare routine with you, I personally really enjoy knowing  what products people use :) I would say I have combination skin; it can be quite oily in places, but then very dry in others. I also have quite large pore, which I absolutely despise! as well as the usual teenage blemishes.

So, when I wake up, I splash my face with water and then tone using this Simple `Kind to skin soothing toner` this leaves my skin feeling clean and supple, as well as really smooth.

I then moisturise with another Simple product, the `hydrating light moisturiser` this is such a good product for my skin type as it really does leave my skin feeling nourished and hydrated for a long time. It also sinks in really fast which is a bonus for my hectic mornings!

If I have any spots that really need getting rid of, I like to target them with this Simple `spot zapper`. I find this is actually really effective, so if like me you get quite obvious, and sometimes sore spots, I would definitely recommend this product :)

Skip of few hours, and before I go to bed, in-order to take of my eye makeup, I like to use the Simple make up remover.

As you can see, I have a bit for a love for this brand, I find some products can be too harsh for my skin, and often end up leaving it looking worse than when I started! But Simple things are always really gentle and do the job perfectly. They also don't contain any unnecessary chemicals, colours or perfumes, so are really beneficial in that sense as well:).

Next, I use a Primark face wipe to remove the majority of my facial make up. Their really cheap and fuss free, although they can tempt you into not cleansing properly!

With that said, I always like to use a proper face wash after , either the Witch `pore minimising gel wash` or the Neutrogena `Visibly clear facial wash`. Lately, I have been leaning more towards my Witch one, because of my dry winter skin I find the Neutrogena lacks the moisture my skin needs, although I'm sure I will be using it a lot more now, as it smells so amazing! I also like to use an exfoliater once a week (I forgot to photograph the one I use, typical!) but it's also a Witch product and I find it really effective, as it isn't to harsh.

Finally for the night, I use my Simple moisturiser again and the `spot zapper`, which will work it's magic while I sleep :)

Once or twice a month, I also like to use a face mask, I find this Mudd one does wonders for my skin, It feels incredibly soft and clean after every time I use it.

So that's my current routine! I tend to stick to this as it works really well for me, but I do want to try the hugely hyped up Liz Earle cleanse and polish, Bioderma and the Origins super spot remover :)
