12 Posts Before Christmas: Skincare Routine

Hello!

We're so close to Christmas! I can't believe it's so soon. Today I will be sharing my favourite skincare bits. Since skincare is specific to the person, what works for me may not work for you, but these are my current favourite items.

Cleanser:

I am loving the Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil for taking off my makeup at the moment. It just dissolves it and leaves my skin feeling cleansed but moisturised. I use a muslin cloth to take it off as I find my face feels a bit oily if I just wash it off. In the morning I use Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam. I like that it's refreshing and leaves my skin feeling clean and ready for the day, but I think once I'm done with it I'll be looking to find a new product that's more easily available in the UK.

Toner:
I use the Etude House Wonder Pore Freshener morning and evening. I really like this because I find it helps clear my skin and I found my skin improved after using it. The cotton pads that came with this are brilliant as well.

Serum:

I've been using the Clarins Pore Minimising Serum for about 2 years now and I love it. I am quite self concious about my pores so I like putting this on every morning because I do think there is an effect. I use one pump in the morning and focus it on areas where I have more pores.  I've repurchased this so if that doesn't tell you how much I enjoy it, I don't know what will.

Eye cream:
I use 2 from Simple. I use the Kind to Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll On every morning as I like the cooling effect as it helps me wake up. In the evening, I use the Regeneration Age Resisting Eye Cream. I don't think I really need age resisting products just yet, but this has a very smooth and light texture, so I really like it. I've been using the Eye Roll On for about 3 years now and repurchased whenever it's been finished, but I've only used the Age Resisting one for about 5 months so I'm still unsure if I'll repurchase.

Moisturiser:
This is new to my routine but it has become such a staple. I raved about the L'Occitane Pivone Sublime Perfecting Creme in my Sample Sunday last month and I've recently moved on to a full size of it.I reviewed it here, so you can check it out in more detail if you like, but basically it helps my skin stay moisturised but doesn't add to oiliness and since I've been using it, I've had better skin than the past half year. I actually switched to a different one for a couple of days since I wanted to finish it before moving onto the full size of this and my spots came back. In summary, I love this stuff.


Exfoliator:
I use the Tea Tree Exfoliating Scrub about twice a week and I really enjoy it. Tea tree oil is one of those at home remedies for spots and I have tried it and it did help a lot so I knew my skin worked well with tea tree oil. I decided to try this scrub as it looked good and smelt nice and I think my skin works well with it. It feels really nice and my skin feels lovely after.


Masks:
I use a variety of masks, but I don't consider them as part of my routine as I always tend to forget to use them. I like the Superdrug line of face masks (I get the 99p ones)  or the Montagne Jeunesse peel off ones.


So there's my skincare routine of the moment. Obviously there are products I adore, but there are some I want to switch up once I'm done so leave me your favourite skincare products in the comments below. I'd love to try something new!
