Skincare Routine

Skincare is one of the things that I never really in to so I never really did it (I know…) or never really know much about. I kept the same products for years until last year when I decided to change it up.  I was running out of all my previous skincare so I purchased completely new products. Mainly because they were on offer at the time but in hindsight, it was a good buy.

CLEANSERS

I have three main cleansers/washes that I use regulary. I use the Garnier SkinActive refreshing botanical gel wash with Aloe extract cleanser every day as my main cleanser. I only use The Body Shop tea tree scrub in the shower every 2-3 days to give the skin a deep clean. To remove my make-up, I use the Lacura hot cloth cleanser and once the makeup is all removed, I do final cleanse using Garnier.

TONER

IMG_0653I only use one toner, the Garnier Skin Active Refreshing botanical toner and I use this twice a day straight after washing. I tip a bit onto a cotton pad and then rub all over my face. I really like this diner, it smells so good and leaves my face feeling hydrated and fresh.

 

EYES

I really want the Olay eye cream, but my bank account says no so I’ve settled for this Simple Kind to Eyes revitalising roll on. I struggle finding a good eye cream as most ofimg_0657.jpg them contain shea butter, which I am allergic too, and then the ones that don’t contain it, are not that good. I’m not 100% set on the Simple cream but it will do for now.

 

MOISTURISERS

I use the Garnier SkinActive Hydrate + Refresh Botanical Day cream in the morning which really hydrates the skin and I also don’t need to use a primer for my makeup which I really like! I’ve recently purchased this Boots Expert Skincare night cream for normal skin as I thought I’d best invest in one. I couldn’t find one that was in the Garnier range, so I went for this Boots own brand one. I really like the cream as its quite heavy and I wake up with my skin feeling quite good (for me anyway).

OTHER PRODUCTS

I love the tea tree oil drops to use on spots when I get them (which has reduced since using this new routine – even with PCOS!) as it is an antiseptic so dries up the spot.

I also like to use a face mask once a week and I’m currently making my way through the collection I have. I love the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Peel Off mask, which at only £3 is a bargain (I also love the tea tree range at boots – so affordable and effective). Another one of my favourite masks is the Garnier Moisture Bomb Sheet masks – they leave your skin looking and feeling so hydrated! I need to use the DisneyxPrimark face maks but they are designed to look like the Princesses and I don’t know if I’m prepared!

MORNING ROUTINE

EVENING ROUTINE

Lacura hot cloth cleanser, Garnier gel wash, Garnier toner and Boots expert night cream.

I also use Simple Micellar Water to remove mascara. I don’t like using the Lacura cleanser to remove mascara as it stings my eyes sometimes! I do occasionally use face wipes but the Simple face wipes are great. 

 

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my skincare routine, I’m quite happy with the results – I’ve noticed that I don’t get as many spots as I used too, my skin looks healthier and I love the products that I use. What skincare products do you use?

      Ahh that’s ok! If you’re unsure on what products to use I know the body shop can help as the people in there can point you in the right direction! I don’t have loads of skincare as I will forget so I find keeping it simple helps lots! Hope you find some products you enjoy! X

      Yes me too! If I had more money I would have more products! It does for me also, my skin actually clears up with tea tree. They’re so good, my favourite one is the pomegranate one but I used that up last week! Tissue masks are good but scary, I have to warn my boyfriend when I’m doing one as I have scared him before 😂 x

      Haha, yeah they are a bit scary once they’re first one but then you get used to them, sheet masks are my fave anyway. Thank you x
