I have noticed recently that my skincare routine must be working for my skin as I’m having fewer breakouts and it’s looking much healthier. This makes me very happy indeed as I’ve been struggling with this for quite a while now :). Athough it’s not perfect I feel I’ve got a good base, so why not share it! Sharing is caring you know 😛
When I wake up, the first thing I like to do is cleanse my face and get rid of any bed grime (wow that sounds gross, but you know what I mean). To do this I put on Body Shop’s Camomile cleansing butter, it’s so lovely, like words can’t even! It’s got a buttery oily kinda thing going on and just glides on, removes impurities and is good for sensitive skin. Win! Then I spray on La Roche-posey Serozinc and wait for that to dry. This product is for oily acne prone skin, which mine can be. I purchased this moisturiser a little while back and I’m actually very pleased with it! It’s got a good thickness to it for the winter months when my skin is dryer, smells divine and leaves my skin feeling great 🙂 and this is Origins Make a difference. After that I throw on Origins GinZing eye cream which does a fair job and doesn’t irritate my eyes. Then that’s me set to put on my make up! Which on a day to day basis takes like 5 mins and I’ve got a separate blog post about that 🙂 Also if I remember I go for a quick spray of the MV organics Rose hydrating mist before I shoot out through door.
Once my feet land on my mat and I’m home, normally the first thing I want to do is remove my make up (providing I’m not ravenous). I do 13 hour shifts though so I know this isn’t the same for everyone. Anyway, when that time in the evening comes when you want to remove your face and chill on the sofa in your comfies, this is my routine. I start with the classic Garner micellar water to remove the majority of my make up then I go back in with Body Shop’s Camomile cleansing butter just to make sure I got it all off. I also use an exfoliating brush just lightly, it also feels lush! I like having a clean face for bed 😛 I normally follow this with my favourite toner Pixi glow tonic on a cotton pad. I then use the Serozinc again and the Origins make a difference moisturiser, the eye cream, and a spritz of MV Organics Rose Hydrating Mist. Then that’s me done 🙂 happy days! I can now chill and read for a bit or watch a bit of tv 🙂
I hope you found this helpful if you are looking for some new products to try. Let me know if you liked it 🙂
