It feels like it’s been a while since I last did a post on my skincare routine. I love reading these posts by other people but when it comes to listing out all the products that I use, I cringe a bit. It always seems like so many products and so much money for one little face. But you know what, why should I feel bad for wanting to look my best. A little care and attention to your appearance gives people the impression that you make an effort in everything you do. I have actually scaled the number of products down a bit. I try not to use separate products for night and day if I can help it. I prefer quality products that can be used both day and night, so the bathroom isn’t clogged up with products. That’s not to say that I won’t be tempted by some fancy all singing and all dancing night cream (actually I have one in mind already). The one thing I am missing right now is a good eye cream so feel free to recommend one that you think is brilliant.
First up, Cleansers:
L’Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution – I use a Micellar Solution to cleanse my skin in the mornings, it’s quick and easy.
La Roche Posay Physiological Foaming Water – this is what I use to remove my makeup at night. It’s quickly and easily removes all traces of makeup and it’s gentle on my skin.
Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel – I recently reviewed this here so I won’t say too much about it now except that I use it a couple times a week and it leaves my skin feeling amazing.
Neutrogena Spot Stress Control Daily Scrub – I keep this one in my gym bag to remove makeup and sweat after a workout. I told you in my last skincare post here, that I thought Neutrogena’s Grapefruit Scrub smelled horrendous but worked great. This smells better; it has a mild cucumber scent but unfortunately doesn’t clean my skin nearly as well as the Grapefruit one.
Serum and Moisturiser:
Clarins Double Serum – I reviewed this before here, I liked it so much I bought it again recently. It hydrates my skin really well.
Clarins Multi – Active Day – this is my first time using this. It’s aimed at 30 somethings and suits my combo to oily skin. I find its good enough for day and night, but if your skin is really dry you may need a heavier night cream.
So there it all is, do you use any of these products? Any little gems you think I should try next?
