Like anyone, I do get the odd break out. To try and prevent disaster, I like to keep up my skincare routine which always keeps my skin looking clear and fresh. I thought I’d put together a post detailing what products I’m currently using in my morning and night-time routines.
To take my makeup off I have recently started using the Afterspa Magic Makeup Remover*, which is an ultra-soft, woven polyester-blend cloth, that removes my makeup easily. I love this, it has honestly changed my life and I’ve found that it’s so much better than the standard makeup wipes. To use, I simply soak the cloth in warm water and remove my makeup within minutes with no hassle at all. If you hate the greasy feeling of makeup wipes on your skin then you should definitely try this out!
After removing my makeup at night, I like to wash and cleanse my face with the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Gel, which has really improved my skin. It does exactly what it claims to do: helps to remove any leftover makeup. Additionally, I find that it gives my skin a thorough clean! Great value for money too, I would highly recommend this product, in fact this must be my fifth bottle!
In the mornings to cleanse, I’ve been using the Skintifique Cleanser P*. I like to use this in the mornings as I like to give my face a light cleanse and don’t want to use something too harsh on my skin. The Cleanser P is an extremely pure, soft micellar water which cleanses, removes makeup and any traces of pollution. When using this, I simply pop a little bit on a cotton round and swipe all around my face. Since this contains no parabens, no fragrance, no EDTA, no silicone and no alcohol, it’s perfect for my sensitive skin in the mornings.
The final step to my skincare routine, morning and night, is moisturiser! For the past month or so, I have been using the Origins GinZing Moisturiser. I have spoken about this before on my blog, so I won’t go into too much detail. This product is very creamy and it blends into the skin easily. After it soaks in, my skin feels amazing and I find that makeup glides over the skin perfectly! However, one thing I must say is that I have only had this pot for a month and it’s almost empty so, you dont get much product for your money.
Once a week, or maybe twice if I want to treat myself, I will relax with a face mask; at the moment, I have been LOVING the L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox and Brighten Face Mask! This mask is made to draw out oils and dirt from your skin, and when I use it, it makes my skin feel so clean and refreshed and for the most part, blemish free! If you’re looking for an affordable face mask that’ll last you, then you need to get your hands on this mask.
That’s all for my skincare routine, some may think it’s a lot, some may think it’s not enough but this routine certainly works for me and my skin.
