my daily and nightly skin care routine.
This is my daily skin care routine, i tend to change my products but at the moment i am loving these products they leave my skin feeling so refreshed and intact! Also keeping nasty spots away!
First i use the face soap and clarity, foaming facial wash which retails at £7.00 at boots. It leaves my skin feeling tight but in a good way. In the morning i’m usually rushing around having a little one so as this is a 3 in 1 its very good.
Secondly i use The Body Shop Cucumber Toner sadly i got it in the sale as it is discontinued but as it was only £2 i stocked up. It justs does the general job of a toner and is nice and refreshing.
Then i use For daily youth, 6 in 1 super boost moisture lotion and it does exactly what it says on the tin! This retails at £12 from boots. As my skin is quite dull especially in the winter weather it gives my skin a glow with its contents of vitamin E and A and an aromatherapeutic fragrance blend with essential oils of orange, grapefruit, eucalyptus, lavender, amyris, cedarwood and fennel it gives it a lovely dewy shine.
Lastly i use my Nivea Daily essentials Primer for Dry/ Senstive skin retailing at £4.99 from Superdrug it primes the skin before you apply your make up and also moisturizes too and keeps my make up in tact for the day ahead.
This is my Nightly skin care routine, as my daily skin care routine i do tend to change my beauty products but this is what i am currently using. That give’s my skin a fantastic feeling.
Firstly i use No7 Beautiful Skin Make up remover which i got out of a No7 gift set for a birthday present, it just removes my make-up before i start the skin care routine.
Secondly i use Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser retailing at £10 from boots. “It cleans, it smooths, it melts away makeup! With panthenol, natural sweet almond, orange and lavender essential oils. Free muslin face cloth inside.” This is exactly what it does.
I then use the same toner as i do in my daily skin care routine, i then use my Lush Popcorn Lip scrub as my lips are so dry and cracked i need something a little more than just a lip butter/ Vaseline this retails at £5.25 from Lush it leaves my lips feeling so nourished with coconut oils and even has a caramel taste, it says so rub the scrub all over your lips then lick of the remains i don’t actually do this as i find it sickly i just wipe it of with a wet cloth but is the best invention i have found for my lips.
I then lastly use my Clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion at a retail price of £17 from the Clinique website and as i got it over the christmas period i recieved a little bag of mini beauty products which was a bonus.
