SKINCARE ROUTINE (UPDATED)


Hello!

I'm going to talk about my skincare routine (an updated version!). If you'd like to see my previous post on this you can here: http://genevieveslifeblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/my-daily-skin-routine-for-acne-prone.html. The two products that I used in the previous post are actually been used in this one too! When I wrote that post I had terrible Acne, so I used those two products religiously on my skin for ages. Now my skin has considerably improved since then, this post is going to include a lot more products.

*NOTE* I don't use all these products at one given time. Sometimes, it depends what I am doing, how my skin is and how much time I have.

REMOVING MAKE UP


The first product I like to use is cleansing facial wipes. At the moment, I am using the Tesco ones with Cucumber extract but I tend to use whatever facial wipes are easiest to purchase at that time. They are really good to have in your bag to remove any smudges of make up and if you just want to refresh your face. I use these first as a way of just removing all my make up but also for their convenience as well.

To also remove make up I use the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. This product removes make up without rinsing and cleanses and soothes your face. This product removes your face, eye and lip make up and has no perfume in it. It is perfect for sensitive skin too! I tend to use this product at night to remove all my make up, but I do switch between this and the facial wipes. At little goes a long way!

CLEANSING 





To cleanse my skin I use the Ultrabland facial cleanser from Lush.This is really effective as it can be used as a cleanser or a make up remover. I use it as both. I really feel that this cleanser gets rid of all the dirt and impurities on my skin.

After using this, I use the Eau Roma Water Toner from Lush. This toner is gentle to your face and doesn't cause it to overreact whilst hydrating your skin.

DEEP CLEANSING/EXFOLIATING 




To exfoliate my face, I use the St Ives Naturally Clear Apricot Blemish Fighting Scrub. This scrub smells so good, it is great to use in the morning to revitalise your skin and to get rid of any excess dirt or dirt on your skin that has appeared overnight. It lifts away oils which can lead to blackheads and blemishes. This product is oil free and has salicylic acid with 100% natural exfoliants in it.

When I feel I have more time, I give my skin a deep cleanse. The product I use is the Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 wash and mask. I tend to use it as a mask more than a wash but it is great that it has two uses! This mask is great as it smells lovely, unclogs your pores and purifies your skin deep down. You only have to leave it on for 5 minutes too!

MOISTURISING 




I am using the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Oil-Free moisturiser. It hydrates, smoothes and evens out my skin tone. This product also smells great too! It comes in a small tube for easy application.
What is your skincare routine like? What do you like doing? Do you use any of these products?
