My simple skincare routine

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well. Today I thought I would share with you my very simple skin care routine, just the basics. I use these products day and night!

To start with I use the Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser. So if you follow my blog post you are probably so very sick of hearing this but this smells amazing. It is literally one all time favourite product. It isn’t harsh on your skin. I was worried before I started to use this that using a scrub everyday my skin would end up dry and raw. But it is so gentle for everyday use. It didn’t break me out nor does it dry out my skin. I bought this after having a sample of the GinZing moisturiser which I also loved!

The next product I use is the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic. I have spoken about this in my blog before but I cannot rave about it enough. It’s sooo cooling and refreshing on the skin and again, please don’t hate me, it smells so good!! Again this doesn’t break me out an doesn’t dry out my skin. This is a good toner as it is suited for all skin types so I definitely recommend.

The last step of my basic routine is the Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. I have used this product since I was about 11. I was looking for an affordable moisturiser for my dry sensitive skin, fortunately I had no spots back then. A much happier time lol. But to this day I still love it and swear by it! A moisturiser I can use everyday that isn’t thick. My make up allies good after using it. It doesn’t make my skin oily nor does it break me out since it doesn’t have any harsh perfumes in it. My skin also used to be so sensitive in my younger days and to this day it has those sensitive moments. Honestly I cannot rave about it enough it is sooo affordable and does an amazing job. Every woman and man should have this moisturiser.

Well everyone I hope you enjoyed this little blog post and I really hope you are all doing well. Let me know if you have used these products and what you thought of them. And if you have any ideas of what blog post i should do next.

Beauty & Skincare Haul & Review

 

 

Hey! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas & I wish you all a very late happy new year and hope it brings you happiness and some glow 😉 . So I decided to take a very large break from everything over the holidays as I needed time to myself & to just refresh. But, I’m baaaaack!

While I was away I bought a few beauty and skincare bits and bobs so I thought I would share with you what I got and how I feel about them.

Okay so starting off with skincare this year I really want to invest in some good skincare products and have a much better skincare routine so I purchased the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic £14.50. I have used this toner before so I really wanted to repurchase. As you know I am a sucker for good smelling products and this is one of the most divine smells ever! It feels so refreshing on your face, it doesn’t dry it out or give you that stingy feeling. All round a lovely toner. Slightly pricey but definitely worth the pennies!

Another skincare product is the L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask in Detox £7.99. I seen that these recently came out and there was a deal on in Boots so I decided why not. So the first time I tried it I applied it all over my face which ended making my skin so dry. The next time I used it I used it on my breakout areas such as my forehead and chin which was so much better and didn’t dry out my skin. This product doesn’t sting either unless it’s on dry skin. I wouldn’t recommend for dry skin people but if you have problematic skin or breakouts then this is for you. I use it once or twice a week depending how bad my breakouts are. It minimises redness and calms down the breakout.

Onto beauty I had had my eye on this product for a while so I was so excited to try. This was the Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick in Cool Girl £19. This colour is amazing it’s a pink -brownish nude and I think with a little hint of lilac The staying power is so good! It applies well without any streaks and doesn’t look dried out or cracked. And I LOVE the packaging. I will definitely be purchasing more colours!

The last beauty product is Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer £10. Yet another product I have had my eye on for quite some time. It has 3 Steps. Step 1 is the pink concealer to conceal any darkness under the eyes. Step 2 is the normal concealer which goes over the pink but I also use it to conceal any spots especially those pesky ones that just won’t be hidden! Then step 3 is a powder to go over the top. It comes in this tiny little tub which is great for your handbag or travelling. The consistency is quite thick so little goes a long way.

Winter Skincare Essentials

Heyyyy, so I guess I’m not very good at posting regularly but in the new year I’m going to try my hardest to do so. But today I wanted to share with you a just a few of my winter skin care essentials. So let’s get to it!

First up is my Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser 50ml jar  £20.25. I love this! It is the perfect, rich moisturiser for when your skin really needs some tlc in these winter months. I only use it when my face is going through a particularly dry period as like I said it can be very rich for everyday use. A bonus, which I always seem to mention on this blog, is that it smells soo good! It is slighty on the pricer side but I can say it is definitely worth paying for. And when you only use it through the dry spells it doesn’t get used up as much either.

Next, is my Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub £5.50. My lips being dry and flakey is just a standard effect of winter so this is perfect to get rid of all that dead skin. I usually scoop a little out with my finger and massage it on a bit first, then use my lips to massage it a bit further. It’s such a treat as the smell and taste is amazing; its just like bubblegum flavoured sugar.

Lastly, is Caramex Lip Balm £1.79. I swear by this lip balm! The combination of the regular use of the lip scrub and then applying this afterwards will have your lips soft in no time. You can get this in different flavours like cherry or mint. You can really feel it getting to work straight away which I really like. This is a drugstore product but gives great results.  I take mine everywhere.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and find these products as useful as I do. I will more than likely be posting throughout the festive period. Let me know if you’d like me to do any specific blog posts in the comments or if you guys have ever used these products as well. I hope you are all well and are enjoying your Christmas holidays so far 🙂

Much love,
