Recently I have been going through a bit of a skin nightmare! Hormones got the better of my face, and in an aid to combat this, I started a new skincare routine. I had so many products I hadn’t tried, either from advent calendars or subscription boxes, so I thought I would go through what I had and find what works well for me.
Starting with the evening, after a long day at work I can’t wait to take my makeup off! I start by removing my eye makeup with The Body Shop’s camomile eye makeup remover. This is really gentle, as the name suggests, but gets makeup off really well. I can do both eyes with just one cotton pad. I then use a makeup wipe all over my face to get the bulk of my makeup off. At the moment I’m using some from Primark, but I tend to mix it up depending where I can get some at the time.
I then go all over my face with the Garnier Micellar water to get rid of the rest of the makeup.
On alternate nights, after my face is nice and clean, I use the Pixi rose tonic to close my pores. I’m really enjoying using this so far, and it smells amazing! I then go in with The Body Shop’s tea tree night lotion which I’ve found has helped clear up my skin. I’ve also been using this balanceme eye cream, which again I am really liking. I’ve definitely seen a decrease in puffiness.
On the other alternate night I use the Alpha Liquid Gold glycolic acid, which I find helps to brighten my skin and get rid of any dullness of the outer layer.
Onto the morning, I tend to use a face wipe to remove any product left from the night before s well as any oils and dirt on my skin. I then use the Pixi toner, and on top of this I use The Body Shop’s tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution. As you can tell, I’m a big fan of the tea tree range, and I honestly think it’s helped clear my skin up in the past! I then use The Body Shop’s vitamin E intense moisture cream. This is my all time favourite moisturiser, it’s really thick which I love! Then I carry on with my makeup as normal.
Recently I’ve been loving facemasks (more than normal), so every Sunday and Wednesday I try and do one. I tend to do a more mud type mask on a Sunday to try and clear my skin. At the moment I’ve been loving The Body Shop’s tea tree face mask. On Wednesdays I tend to use a sheet mask for a bit of mid week moisture. At the moment I’m loving the Disney range from Primark!
