(Current) Skin care routine

Hello darlings.

Today I thought I would do an updated skin care routine! Summer edition. I hope you enjoy :)
I’m not one of those girls who has a huge skin care routine in the morning, because, well to be honest I don’t have the time. The only thing I do is wash, moisturser and prime my skin before I put my makeup on, which works just fine for me. My routine is an evening one that I thought I’d share with you. In case any of you were looking for any new products or ideas.
 So lets begin.

Olay Essentials Eye Makeup Remover.
First stage stage in my routine is to take off my makeup, which is very important, never sleep with makeup still left on your skin!
To do this I either use Simple skin care wipes, or a makeup remover. At the moment I’m using the Olay eye makeup remover to take off my eye makeup, I do this using small cotton pads. I find it works really well and is soft on my skin.

Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser.
Then I use a cleanser to take off the rest of my makeup and to thoroughly wash my face. I find this one, Superdrug’s own brand, to be amazing! Its rich, creamy, doesn't dry out my skin and removes all my makeup so easily. Plus its great value for money!
Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash.
I use Simple moisturising facial wash next, it’s a really decent face wash. Its very gentle and leaves my skin super soft. I am a big fan of Simple products as I have quite sensitive skin and their products don’t have any artificial perfumes, colours or harsh chemicals, so it doesn't irritate my skin or cause me to break out. Which is always good!

Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturser.
To finish off I use Simple moisturiser, the same one I use in the morning. I love this moisturser as its light on my skin and it drys really quickly. Which is fantastic so it doesn’t leave me sticky so I can go to sleep straight after without having to wait for it to dry. I use it in the morning too as its so light I can’t feel it under my makeup and doesn’t make me look shiny. Overall a really good, light, moisturser. I personally wouldn’t use this in the winter as it is very light, but for summer its perfect!

I hope you enjoyed reading this and if it was helpful. I know I love reading peoples skin care routines so I thought I’d give it a go!

I would love to know whats your favourite moisturser?

  4. My favorite night time moisturizer is Purpose's Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion (nice and light) and for day I love Aveeno's Positively Radiant tinted moisturizer.

    I've also just started using Simple's toner, we'll see how that goes! Their other products sound nice.

    1. Ah, thats great :) I hope it works for you.

  5. Nice round-up. I usually stick with organic moisturisers or use facial oils that I make myself. I think they work best for my skin. :)

    1. Thats awesome :) Different things work for different skin types. :)
