I haven't posted for a while about my current skincare routine so thought I'd do a little update on what I'm using at the moment so keep my skin in shape!
I am currently using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to remove my make-up. I like to use the big cotton wool pads that you can get from Boots to sweep it all off. I do also use Bioderma but tend to save this for when I have lots of make-up on- as it's more expensive I want it to last as long as possible!
I then do a full cleanse with the Organic Surge Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser*. I massage into my skin and polish off with a flannel or muslin cloth. I absolutely love this cleanser- my skin feels so soft and moisturised after using! After cleansing it's on to toning and I have two that I've been using. The first is the Claudia Louch Botanical Firming Toner* - how beautiful is the packaging? So sleek. This is a natural, alcohol-free toner with aloe vera, chamomile and green tea which you can either use on a cotton pad, or spray on to your face. I'd recommend dabbing it onto a cotton pad as the spray function didn't work too well for me! This feels like a really luxury toner as it's quite a thick consistency and leaves skin feeling great. I also like to use the Organic Surge Orange Flower Toner* which I love because it smells divine. It's light and refreshing so a great toner for summer.
Next step in my routine is serum and I've been using the Skin Chemists Vitamin Serum*. It smells like apples and absorbs really quickly into my skin so it's nice and ready for my next step. Sometimes I give serum a miss and use the Effaclar Duo+* as this helps to keep my skin clear. After using one of those products I like to apply a night moisturiser- Organic Surge's Overnight Sensation Night Cream is one I've used up and re-purchased as it's so thick and moisturising.
My final step is an eye cream or eye product. At the moment I've been using the Nip + Fab Viper Venom Eye Fix* which came in a Love Me Beauty box a few months ago. This is a roll-on gel and is really cooling.
So that's it! Probably worth pointing out that this is my night-time regime. In the morning I just do a quick cleanse and get going on my make-up- much prefer an extra 5 minutes in bed!
