Todays post I thought I would share with you my updated skincare routine. To be quite honest there isn't much to my skincare routine. I find my skin reacts better to a simple routine rather than one with 10 steps, you get my gist.
The first product I like to use is the Bioré deep pore charcoal cleanser. This facial wash is what I use in the morning and at night. I have oily/combination skin which tends to leave me with relatively large pores so I always seem to go for charcoal washes as I find they work best for my skin. I have been using this particular face wash for about 4 months and I am really enjoying it. My pores appear so much smaller since using this product, which helps with applying my makeup. Theres nothing worse than visible pores under your foundation!!!
Next I use the Nip + Fab Glycolic Cleansing Pads, These cleansing pads are so far my most favourite part of my skincare routine. I started using these about a month a go and I can see such a huge difference in my skin. Since using these in my routine my skin has less redness and my complexion is much brighter. I usually only use these pads in the evening before using my toner, which is making me want to try out the intensive night time pads which are similar to the ones I am using now.
I then go on to use a toner, I used to use one from Lush until I started to see this one everywhere. I had wanted to try it for quite a while as I'd heard nothing but amazing things about it @beautybythebunny on Instagram is to blame for this purchase haha! She has nothing but amazing things to say about it. I haven't been using it for very long so I can't really say if it has done amazing things for my skin as of yet but, it smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling so smooth and nourished. Keep an eye out for a full review once I've been using it a little longer.
okay, so this moisturiser for me is the best thing since sliced bread! I have never in my life used a better moisturiser. It's cheap and cheerful from Nivea but it is so amazing for my skin. It is an oil free moisturiser which I find works best for my oily skin that also is supposed to reduce shine. I have been using this moisturiser for quite a while and it has left my skin feeling so bloody soft and much less greasy. What I love about this product is I can use a normal amount day to day but then slather it on when my skin feels dehydrated and no matter how much you use it sinks in to the skin beautifully without feeling sticky which a lot of moisturisers tend to do.
Finally we have this cheap eye cream from Superdrug. I have bee using this for a couple of months and I am almost finished with it. I like it for under my eyes but I'm not blown away by it. My under eyes are rather dark so I really wanted an under eye cream to brighten my eye area. I thought I would just try a cheap one and see how I get on with it. I have to say it does feel amazing on my under eyes it leaves them very soft and hydrated but I really don't think It has brightened my eyes at all so because of that I won't be buying it again after its all used up. I mean I will finish it because it does do something to my under eye area it just doesn't do what I want it to.
