My Skincare Routine

Hello lovelies!
As someone that has oily/acne prone skin I find it incredibly difficult to find products that don't break me out or exacerbate the problem.
 I always do the four basic steps; cleanse, tone, treatment and moisturise although on those lazy days I slack with my skin routine completely and sometimes just do the cleansing and treatment without the moisturiser and a toner, oops.

I do tend to change up my skincare every so often, maybe every 3 months or less as I always like to try new products out but I have been using these products for the last few weeks and they have been working wonders for my skin.

I thought I would show you the products I use both day and night in my skincare routine with mini reviews about every product.


Cleansing, Toning, Treatment

Skincare Routine
Skincare Routine

Olay Gentle Cleanser Conditioning Milk | Superdrug
I have been using this for so long now, I first purchased it 2 or 3 years ago and I've been repurchasing it ever since. I always use this cleanser first to remove all of my makeup including my eye makeup too. It's very gentle on the skin and you can use it no matter what skin type you have.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser | The Bodyshop
I have been using this cleanser for the last 6 months, maybe more and I absolutely love it, I've repurchased it so many times. I always double cleanse and I always use this one after using the Olay Cleansing Milk. It makes my face feel automatically refreshed and does a great job of getting rid of any dirt and left over makeup on the skin.

Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz | Boots
This is a new addition to my skincare routine, I have been using it for a few weeks now and I have noticed a great difference to my skin after I use it. I spritz this onto my face  after I've rinsed off my Body shop cleanser and sometimes throughout the day whenever my skin needs an instant refresh or pick me up. I just love this!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo Plus+ | Boots
This is my second purchase of this and I can't imagine my life without it. As I have acne prone skin I always rely on this to clear up those random breakouts. I have a full review on this beauty here if you'd like to know more.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil | The Bodyshop
I always have a spare bottle of this in my skincare drawer, it comes in handy in so many ways. I use this on spots around the jawline and neck area as it does a great job of reducing inflammation and getting rid of those ugly acne scars.

Moisturise

Skincare Routine

Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Fluid for Sensitive Skin | Superdrug
 I love this moisturiser, it's great value for money. It makes my skin feel amazingly soft and provides a great base to glide on my foundation.

Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer | Origins
This is a new addition to my skincare routine. I switch between this and the Olay moisturizer depending on how I feel on the day. The GinZing moisturizer smells absolutely divine, it reminds me of Terry's chocolate orange. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft and also gives my skin an extra boost making it look luminous.

Exfoliate

Skincare Routine

St Ives Apricot Blemish Fighting Scrub | Superdrug
My #1 exfoliating scrub is this, the St Ives Blemish Fighting Scrub. Although it claims to fight blemishes I quite frankly don't think it does that at all but it's great for sloughing off all the dead skin on my face. It makes my face feel so soft like a babys bottom. I have a review on this product here if you'd like to know more.

Face Masks

Skincare Routine


 Super Facialist by Una Brennan Tea Flower Pore Purifying Clay Mask | Boots
I don't want to say too much about this face mask as I will have a review coming up on this soon. I use this face mask on those days that my face feels overally oily. After using this I noticed that the oil had reduced and my face felt fresh and clean without any dryness or tightness.

Origins Clear Improvement Mask | Origins
My #1 face mask ever I have to say and I've used so many. This is without doubt the greatest skin saviour for those days you get those unexpected breakouts. You know what I mean? One minute your skin's in great condition and the next you get random spots popping up on your forehead, chin, even beside the nose and near the jawline(they're the worst!). I can't rave about this face mask enough. If you'd like to know more check out my review on it here.
