Hope you’ve all had a lovely week!
I thought this week I’d share the products I’ve been using daily to create my in-depth skincare routine. I won’t lie there are quite a few steps!
I start off by washing my face with the Body Shop Tea Tree foaming face wash, followed by the Tea Tree Toner on a cotton pad, which I swipe over my face to fully cleanse the skin!
Next I take the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot treatment and apply it to any problem areas. Them I use the Superdrug own brand vitamin c serum and dropper it onto my face, I then use my hands to massage it in.
Probably my favourite step is the Superdrug own brand vitamin E face mist. Something about misting your face is just incredible… I LOVE IT! Leaves your skin feeling quenched.
I moisturise with the Neutrogena Visibly Clear pink grapefruit oil free moisturiser, this moisturises my skin without leaving it excessively oily!
The most important step is SPF, I use the simple factor 30 SPF to ensure my skin is protected from the sun… don’t wanna be getting wrinkles now!!
The last of my routine is lip balm and I quite often rotate which ones I’m using at the moment I’m loving the body shop raspberry lip balm!
And that’s it, that’s all I do in the morning to prep my skin for the day! It sounds quite lengthy but normally I can get it done in under 10 minutes!
It’s normally a bit shorter because by that time I’m so tired I just want to collapse in bed.
I start off in the shower with the Superdrug naturally radiant brightening hot cloth cleanser, I play all over the face and use the accompanying cloth to wipe away the days make up. Sometimes I use my electric face brush to really get in there.
I don’t use that Garnier skin active pure active gel face wash to cleanse my skin, I simply apply to the face and then wash off again.
Once out of the shower give my face a once over with the Garnier micellar water to just read my skin any impurities and get off the pesky mascara that didn’t come off the first time round.
Then I hop into bed and first apply my Olay anti wrinkle eye gel followed by my Nivea night cream and a lip balm of choice, at the moment it’s the Vaseline aloe vera one. Sometimes I like to finish off the night with a bit of Bio oil but this is normally only twice a week.
A simple yet effective night time routine!
Once a week I like to do a face mask this is either a packet mask from Superdrug, or my elf bubble mask, or my L’Oreal pure clay mask, depending on what my skin is like that week. I also love the Superdrug Teatree pore strips to really cleanse my nose.
Twice a week I like to scrub my face after washing it in the shower, I tend to use either the Nip and Fab teen skin pore blaster, or the Garnier skin active pure active Three-In-One.
And if my skin is really being a pain I’ll apply TCP and a cotton bud to particular problem areas.
And there you have it, my entire skincare routine of the moment! Let me know what your favourite skincare bits are, as I am looking to try out new things before heading off to uni in September!
See ya laters
