My Current Skincare Routine

Recently I received quite a few compliments on my skin so I thought I would share my skincare routine with you all.

Makeup Remover

First of all I use a make up remover. My all time favourite is  the Urban Decay Makeup Meltdown dissolving spray. I swear this thing can remove anything in a nano-second.tSecondly, I use a cleanser. I haven’t got a favourite yet but at the moment I’m using one from Clinique. I do this primarily to remove the UD spray because even though it says it’s oil free, my skin still feels greasy after I use it but that is a small price to pay for the speed it removes my makeup at.

Serumkl

I recently found a new brand- or at least new to us in the UK- called The Ordinary. I heard about this specific product- Niacimide 10% + zinc 2%- from a Buzzfeed Article and at £5.50 I had to try it as they claimed it helped with acne and I get a lot of hormonal acne on my chin. This thing is a miracle worker! I’ve been using it for just over a month maybe? and there is such an improvement in my skin apart from the one pore that seems to insist on getting blocked once a month- Ladies you know what I’m talking about. I’m so impressed with this that I ordered a tonne more of their products to add into my routine then in a few weeks time  I’m hopefully going to do a post dedicated just to The Ordinary. hopefully they will have arrived  by the time you’re reading this.

Moisturiserk

Anyone with combination skin will tell you how difficult it is to find a moisturiser. Your skin is dry, you use a moisturiser, your skin is an oily hot-mess. But this moisturiser from Lush is specifically made for oily skin and is completely water-based. My skin has never been so soft!

Spot Treatmentsb

now for that on pore on my chin that still likes to ruin my skin once a month, I use Grease Lightning from Lush. This definitely reduces redness and the size of the spot if you use it morning and night.

Maskspm

I also like to use a mask of some sort a couple of times a week. My favourites are the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Bubble Clay Mask and the Hell Pore peel mask but recently I’ve been trying the Urban Decay pore-refining peel to see how it compares to Hell Pore and I’m really torn between the two. I also really like sheet masks but I’ll just have a look through whatever they’ve got in my local TK Maxx and buy any that claim they’ll fix my skin issues, I don’t really have any that I use all of the time so I thought I would just share a few pictures of some of the masks that I use on a regular basis.

 

So guys, that is a brief outline of my skincare routine. Please follow if you’d like to hear more about my favourite products or see some makeup looks. As you’re reading this I will have finished university for the summer and I have a few exciting things planned so watch this space!
