Skin Care Routine

Hello Lovelies!

If you know me you'll know that I am a complete and utter skin care fanatic! I love nothing more than cleansing my face in the evenings..(does that make me a bit sad) So being this way about my skin care makes me more aware of everything I put on my face. Most of the things I'm using has been discovered through trial & error, by reading reviews on different blogs and recommendations from friends! It has taken me a while to find a routine that I think really works for me. So I thought that I would share it with you in case anyone like me likes to see what works for other people!



So as you can see I don't actually use that many products on my face, I hate using strong smelling products on my face as I find they are too harsh and since I have really sensitive skin that is not something I want to be doing!

For my everyday skincare routine the first thing I do is cleanse my face with my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. Let me tell you something, this stuff is a miracle worker. The product is lovely and creamy and really gets every speck of my make up off (including water-proof mascara!) and I love using the muslin cloths that you get with it, makes my skin feel smooth and very polished as the name would suggest. 
Next I use my Garnier Soft Essentials Toner, and I love this because it has rose extract in it which is really good for sensitive skin. I love using toner on my skin, I never thought it made that much difference so I stopped using it. During this time my skin felt so dry, tight and uncomfortable it made me realise the benefits of using a toner. I also find it really refreshing, even if you're not wearing make up all day just to waken up your skin abit.
Lastly I put on my moisturiser, and this Garnier moisturiser is my absolute favourite..I love it so much I've written an entire blog post about it here so I won't ramble on about it any more! 

So every once in awhile I like to give my skin a little treat, I love doing face masks & I try to use them once every 2 weeks on my face. The one I'm using at the moment is Montagne Jeunesse in Dark Chocolate. It smells delish but apart from that it does an amazing job at bringing out all the hidden blemishes in my skin so I can get them out of the way before any big events!
And finally the facial exfoliator that I like to use is Vichy Detoxifying Exfoliating Cream. It has tiny exfoliating beads in it which I like and again it smells lovely, not too harsh on my skin and it leaves my skin feeling lovely and smooth!

So thats pretty much it for my skin care routine! I really want to try the Clarisonic so if any of you have it could you let me know how you find it to help with my decision?

  1. I love skincare too! Way more than makeup at the mo. I haven't got a Clarisonic but I'd be really wary if you've got sensitive skin, I'm not sure it'd do much for you! I really my skincare routine at the mo, I might do a post on it. There are so many products I'm using though!x
