When it comes to skincare, I have become much more routine in the last year or so. I have finally found a combination of products that work for my skin and that is something I think is worth sticking too! My routine is mostly made up of Clinique products (not an ad, but I wish!) as there are so many customisable routines and combinations with their skincare that it just works the best for me. I have dry/combination skin after having quite oily skin for a long time, so I have really had to change the way I look at skincare to get the best out of my skin.
Clinique Take The Day Off Balm – I massage this onto dry skin to remove makeup and wipe clean with a warm muslin cloth (I like the Liz Earle ones best!) This really gets rid of all traces of makeup and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight, or overly greasy as it turns into a light milk once in contact with water.
Clinique Liquid Facial Soap – After taking off my makeup, I use this to wash any other dirt and excess makeup away. This facial wash comes in different formulas for different skin types and I have the Dry to Combination.
Clinique Toner – After cleaning, I put a pour a little bit onto a cotton pad and run this over my face and neck. This helps to take the last bit of dirt off my skin and exfoliate.
Clinique Moisture Booster and Clinique Moisture Boost Intense Gel Cream – I use both the moisture boost serum/gel and the Gel Cream from the same range. My skin has become a lot more dry over the past year or so and this combination really helps to stop my skin feeling dry and tight.
Soap and Glory Speed Plump All-Day Super Moisture Marvel – My Clinique moisturiser was running out and I wanted to pick up a cheaper alternative so this is what I picked up. This has a slightly thicker texture compared to the Clinique one, but it is really moisturising and is great to put on before makeup as it soaks in really quickly.
No7 Moisture Boost Face Mask – I like to use this once a week, usually whilst in the bath. I spread a thin layer all over my face and leave for 15 mins.
