My Daily Skincare Routine


 Hello everyone! Hope you're all okay! 

I'm back to blogging after a bit of a mini break. I didn't plan on being away for this long but moving into uni and freshers week meant that I was very busy! I'm finally unpacked, well mostly, and getting in to a routine. This week we started lectures and my timetable is pretty good. Monday is my only full day. I get Tuesdays and Wednesdays off and Thursdays and Fridays are only mornings. Really can't complain! I'll be doing a uni room post in the next couple of weeks.

Also, I would like to say welcome to my new followers. I didn't really expect to get any followers or readers whilst I wasn't blogging much and I'm really happy and surprised that I did!

Now, to the skin routine...


My main skin care products...
Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Clenser
Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz
Skin Wisdom Eye Makeup Remover
Soap and Glory Fab Pore Facial Peel
Witch Blemish Stick
Sudocrem
 
So, I like to keep my skincare nice a simple and only use a few products. There is a couple of reasons I do this. The main reason is so that it is easy to detect which products, if any, cause me to break out or have an allergic reaction. By only using a few products it is easy to pinpoint which products have caused this. The second reason is that, for my skin, using a lot of products can do just as much damage as using none. I suffer from eczema which causes me to have sensitive and dry skin. In the past I have found that using a lot of products has caused my skin to become very dry.

I do tend to swap and change curtain products if I don't feel they're working for me or if I find something on offer, but the amount of products and routine doesn't really change.

In the morning...


My morning skin routine is very, very simple. It pretty much consists of just washing my face with warm water and a muslin cloth. This is then followed by using the Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz, which I have previously reviewed here. I then moisturize using a prescription cream which is pretty similar to E45 and oilatum creams. It's quite a heavy duty moisturizer and I do tend to use milder creams when my skin is behaving.

In the evening...


I tend to wear makeup on a day to day basis, so it's really important that I remove all my makeup before going to bed. To remove most of my face makeup (powder, bronzer & foundation) I use Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser. I've only been using it about a month and found that it is a really nice product. As it's cream based I find it doesn't dry out my skin and feels really lovely when applying. I remove it using a muslin cloth and it removes the majority of my face makeup. My previous cleanser was causing me to break out but swapping to this one really improved my skin. I'm not spot prone so a nice, simple cleanser works fine for me. My eye makeup remover tends to be picked based on whatever is on offer at the time (probably not the best method to use!). I'm currently using Skin Wisdom eye make up remover. Although it works well I don't think I'll be buying it again and it does take a bit of effort to remove the eye make up with this product. In the past I have found moisturizers work well and using them works out cheaper too! Once all my makeup is removed I again use the toning spritz and moisturize. Nice and simple!

Extras...


Although I like to keep my skin care routine nice and simple every few weeks I like to use a face mask to give my skin a little extra 'freshening up'. I'm currently using Soup and Glory Fab Pore Facial Peel as my face mask. It comes in a small pot and I've actually found it to be really good value for money. I've used it about 8 times now and reckon I'm only about halfway in to it!


If I get a spot or have a breakout there are a couple of things that I like to use, the  Witch Blemish Stick and Sudocrem. I find them both really good at getting rid of, or minimising, spots and breakouts.

So, like I said, I like to keep my skin routine really nice and simple. If there are any products I have mentioned that you would like me to review please let me know :) Is your skin care routine similar to this?

  7. I've tried Sudocrem and Wich stick on my spots in the past and neither did much for me. Loyal to toothpaste and tea tree oil these days!

    1. Aww that's a shame. I must say, I have found that sudocrem helps a lot more than the witch stick.
