Skincare Routine & Products I'm Loving
Hey everyone! I hope you are all having a great start to the week. Bank holiday weekend is coming up so I'm sure everyone is very excited for their three day weekend! I'm currently sitting here with a cup of tea while I type away! It has been so so so long since I have last written a blog post but it has been on my mind the past couple of weeks, I have been dying to do a few more posts. I was waiting until I got some essentials for taking good photos but today I have realised that the more I wait the more I'm putting it off! So I searched around the house for the best natural lighting I could find, found some gorgeous potpourri and snapped away! I must say I really enjoyed putting my Nikon camera to use! I definitely need to invest in a new lense as the one I have has a mark on it, I'm not sure how as I am super cautious when handling it. So for the mean time it will have to do, it does pop in some photos so please excuse. If any of you know how to edit this out please let me know because it is driving me crazy! Anyway enough of my rambling on and onto the products.
Skincare Routine: Every morning I wash my face with lukewarm water and salt. Yes, you read that right.. salt! It's anti-bacterial and it helps the exfoliation and toning of your skin! I then use the Garnier Miscellar water and the hydrating day cream. Once a week I like to use the Soap&Glory No clogs allowed mask. All which have my skin in its best condition it has ever been! I have listed these products below and went into a bit more detail.
Garnier Essentials Hydrating Day Cream: This is actually a new day cream I've been using, well I have been using it for a good while now as this is my second time using it. It was actually my mam that picked this up for me as she seen it was on special offer. I have a very oily t-zone and I have dry skin on some areas of my face. Sometimes my skin can feel quite tight after I wash my face or take my makeup off. It is the most uncomfortable feeling ever I literally lather my face in moisturiser! Since using this day cream it has made my skin unbelievably soft. I honestly can't get over how well it worked after one day. It has helped that tightness feeling I get to a certain extend after I remove my makeup. I knew it wasn't going to get rid of it completely because that is just the way my skin is but it does help get rid of any dryness and it leaves the skin so soft. This is for dry and sensitive skin and it is enriched with vitamin E so it helps to protect your skin and keep it hydrated!
Miscellar Cleansing Water: Ok I know there is hundreds of blog posts on these products, as it is very popular! But I didn't want to leave it out as it is part of my skincare routine. Before I started using this I ALWAYS removed my makeup with makeup wipes. My skin was in such bad condition, I was constantly getting breakouts and my skin was so red. I am starting to believe it was because I was using makeup wipes to remove my makeup. I will admit I was very laid back when it came to skincare, which is terrible because I wear makeup everyday and I should of been looking after my skin better. I have tried each one but at the moment I am using the one for sensitive skin because I have been using new makeup products I haven't used before. I honestly don't think I will ever part from this, not only does it remove makeup amazingly but it has reduced the redness in my skin and breakouts.
Soap&Glory No Clogs Allowed: Is there any Soap&Glory product that isn't amazing?! This is DEFINITELY the best face mask I have ever used! My sister has used this before and she was the one that told me about it. At one stage my skin was just constantly breaking out and I wasn't using any type of face mask so I decided to give this a go. So this mask is for oily/combination skin and I would highly recommend it. To be honest I never liked using masks because I hate when it drys in and feels really tight. Reason being my skin already having that tightness feeling. But this is literally the most relaxing mask ever! It features a 1 minute hot potclear technology. Another advantage to this product is that it comes in a tube so it lasts forever! So bascially when you lather the mask all over your skin until it turns blue, then wet your hands and rub it in again and it heats up! It is the most relaxing feeling. Definitely a must when your having a pamper night. This has my skin in such good condition since I started using it a year ago, I swear by it! It has cleared my skin and reduced breakouts. I do get them from time to time as everyone does but not as many and they are cleared up pretty quick from using this.
