My Skincare Routine



As much as I love make-up, it's skincare that gets me really excited! That feeling of taking all of the layers off after a long day and pampering with serums, oils and masks - bliss! Does anyone else experience this joy too?!

I have several trusted favourites that are never far from reach and I love trying new products too. 
So, today I thought I'd share my current routine.



To take my make-up off, I love Garnier Miceller Cleansing Water. It's very gentle and so easy to pop on a cotton pad, quickly removing all traces of makeup in one step. It's perfect for using on eyes too and very soothing. At night time, if I'm wearing heavier eye make, I love Clarins Instant Eye Make-Up remover to tackle more stubborn liner and mascara.No panda eyes around here!

We've all heard the benefits of double cleansing, so once Step One above is complete, I'll use a cream Cleanser such as Clarins Extra-Comfort Anti Pollution Cleansing Cream. With ingredients including mango and shea butter, it's sounds as yummy as it feels on the skin.



I also swear by my Clarisonic and work this into my routine about three times a week. I got it for my birthday last summer and I wouldn't be without it now. It leaves skin feeling squeaky clean and my complexion is definitely clearer overall as a result. I use it with my Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser.



When it comes to serums my latest obsession is Clarins Double Serum. How have I only started using it this year? It's like a mini spa treat and literally melts into the skin after cleansing with the Clarisonic. I love it!

Speaking of Clarins, I'm also a huge fan of their face oils and love the Lotus Treatment Oil for the ultimate moisture surge overnight.

My current moisturiser of choice is REN Youth Vitality Day Cream. It's a lovely texture, not too heavy and my make up glides on over it like a dream. They do a night version too which I'll layer on over my serum. 

And finally, masks. Anyone who follows me on Instagram will know that I'm completely obsessed with GlamGlow! The Youthmud is my favourite and I use this once a week, when I've got time for some extra pampering. All of the hype surrounding this product is 100% verified by me for sure! I've repurchased several times since first putting it to the test last year. It leaves my skin feeling unbelievably smooth, brighter and tighter. It's the perfect pick me up before a big event or night out!



Do you use any of these products or have any other recommendations for me to try?

Thanks for reading, I hoped you enjoyed it!
