I've not posted in over a week, but it feels like so much longer for some reason! I just thought I'd take a little break rather than forcing myself to blog, I'm a strong believer in keeping things enjoyable, and I think it really shows when someone wants to be writing and when they are simply doing because they feel they have to.
But anyway, it's been an absolute age since I last shared my skincare routine and it has change quite a bit since I did a whole post on it. I have struggled with blemish prone skin since becoming a teenager, but I these products definitely help and I am happy super with my routine right now!
-Eye makeup remover-
To be honest, I'm not that faithful to any eye makeup remover, but this Simple one and the L'oreal Micellar water are my favourites. I just soak a cotton pad with which ever one I'm using at sweep it over each eye until all the mascara, eyeshadow and liner is gone!
I like to use this Nivea Cleansing mousse if I want to take of all my makeup without using the above, sometimes it's just nicer to use a wash, it means I can take off all of my base makeup at the same time too. This one has a lovely foamy texture and is perfect to use in the morning when I'm in the shower. I'm always a little wary of trying new products, but this one didn't break me out at all.
This La Roche-Posay Foaming gel cleanser has got holy grail status for me , I absolutely love it! It has a lovely gel texture which feels balm like in a way, and is just the best thing after a long day. I like to use this in the morning (again in the shower) or at night. I have noticed a huge difference in the number of breakouts and general appearance of my skin since I have been using this (I'm on my second bottle) and I am going to repurchase it for a long time to come!
I have used this toner since I first got into skincare, it does the job perfectly, leaving my skin feeling smooth and extra clean, I always tone before I apply my makeup because I feel like it gets rid of any excess oil so the overall finish is far better.
A good moisturizer is a must in anyone's routine, and this one suits my skin perfectly. It is rich without being heavy and absorbs really fast. Also how cute is the tub!
I have tried lots of product to try to clear my breakouts, but this is by far the best, I have done a full review here so I wont go on too much about it, but what you really need to know is how fast and effectively it works. I apply this to a spot before I got to sleep, an by the morning it will be smaller, less sore and less red, and if not that then totally gone. So much love for this product!
My current favorite face mask and what I have been reaching for most for a while is Lush's Love Lettuce one. It is meant to brighten, soothe and exfoliate and it does what it says! It leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth and really makes a difference to how clear it looks.
Finally, not technically a skincare item, but I always apply a lip balm last thing before I jump into bed, this one is amazing, it feels really luxurious and smells divine.
So that's my routine, I don' use as many products as some people, but often keeping things simple is best! I mainly focus on making sure all of my makeup is off and that my skin is as clean as possible.
What do you think of my routine? What products do you use?
