I haven’t done a skincare routine post since last August so I thought I would share what I’m currently using in my routine. I’m busy testing the Body Shop Pomegranate Cream Cleanser and Nutriganics Smoothing Eye Cream. So far I’m enjoying the cleanser but not finding the eye cream moisturising enough, so I will probably purchase the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment yet again. I also alternate between the Balm Balm Rosehip Serum and Paula’s Choice Antioxidant Serum in the mornings, after the Paula’s Choice treatment. My skincare routine takes quite a bit of time due to all the steps, but I never skip a step even if it means less time for makeup!
In the evening I double cleanse using the Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Oil, Balm Balm Frankincense Cleansing Balm and Body Shop Pomegranate Cream Cleanser in various combinations. My favourite is the Balm Balm cleansing balm because it really leaves my skin feeling nourished and pampered. I also double tone at night. Overkill maybe, but it seems to be making my skin happy. The Paula’s Choice retinol serum feels a lot like a facial oil on application and sometimes I just add a dab of the Clinique moisture gel over it before I get into bed, but it feels very moisturising on its own.
I use three masks a week usually, one for deep cleansing, one for hydration and one for exfoliating. Sometimes after my mini home facial I will use the Clarins face treatment oil instead of my normal serum and moisturiser. I am a big fan of Esse products and also using their refining cleanser as a clay mask even though it is technically a cleanser. I also love Body Shop and REN masks and have three in rotation at the moment. I’d love to hear your skincare product recommendations! Please let me know which products you can’t do without 🙂
