My Current Skincare Routine

Wednesday, 31 May 2017


As much as I love makeup, I'm also quite the skincare fanatic as well!

I write up about my skincare routine every once in a while, well every time the products switch around I guess. And it has come to that time once again, where I talk you through my skincare routine and what I've been lovin'!

First up, to remove my makeup I use the trusty Garnier Micellar Water. I haven't used anything else for about two years now, as I just love it so much. Its gentle, and removes my makeup really well. Then onto cleanser. I'm all about that double cleansing life. Since my last skincare routine, my skin has basically just turned to sh*t. Its broken out, I have scarring, under the skin spots, blackheads, dry patches, just everything that could be wrong, has gone wrong. So, to try and tackle my spottiness (lol), I've been using the Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Cleanser. This is just a simple cleanser, that has apparently been recommended by a lot of dermatologists and I mean, it seems to be doing okay for skin thus far. 

After cleansing, we're on to toning. After my success with The Body Shop Seaweed Mask, I decided to try their Seaweed Oil-Balancing Toner. I absolutely freaking love this stuff. I could not recommend it enough if you have combination/oily, or blemish prone skin. Its really settled down my skin, reducing some of the scarring and generally just balancing everything out. I love it! Then we have serum. I never used serum until about 6 months ago, and now I can't go without. I'm currently using The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5. Hyaluronic acid is meant to help plump up the skin, and keep it hydrated - I think?! I've been enjoying using this none the less, as its really refreshing and I can feel my skin drink it up!

Finally, we have moisturiser. I was on the hunt for a new one, and I stumbled across the Vichy Normaderm Anti-Blemish Cream. Like I said, my skin is really playing up recently, so this sounded perfect. It has quite a strong scent to it, so if you're not a fan of fragranced products, I'd steer clear of this. Although I really like the smell, and it seems to be working quite well at keeping serious breakouts at bay. Its quite a thick cream too, so I really feel as though its doing something for my skin. Finally, to tackle pesky spots, I use the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. This helps to dry out any spots that are lingering, and I've found it really works, better than sudocrem in fact. 

What skincare products are you currently using?

  5. Ooh I have some parts oily and definitely blemish prone skin so these sound good - I've heard good things about Eucerin products so I'll have to check this out. And I went into Body Shop to have a browse yesterday and since you seem so happy with the Seaweed toner I think I might give it a go!

    I wrote a post recently actually about my new skincare routine and I'm loving Liz Earle at the moment and Kiehl's Blemish lotion is also really good!

  14. I really want to try the Mario Badescu lotion! I have no products at ALL in my stash that are designed to target a spot, so when I do get one I'm f*cked. I heard Kylie Jenner uses it too, so if it's good enough for her? Must be for little me

  15. You have some really good picks here, your skin sounds similar to mine! I agree about the Body Shop's seaweed range, it's perfect for oily skin - the clay mask is super oil absorbing! I also used to love the drying lotion but I find that their drying cream is even better! I want to try some Ordinary products next xx
