left to right: Clean&Clear face scrub, Garnier Moisture Match, Nivea Night Cream, Simple Face Mask, Yes To Cucumbers Cleanser, Simple Spot Zapper and Simple Eye Roll-on.
 After having a month off from blogging I am back and will hopefully be getting a couple of posts up a week! Today I decided it was time I shared my skincare routine with you, especially considering nothing skincare related has ever been on my blog.
When I wake up I like to head straight to bathroom and wash my face to wake myself up (especially when it's school). I start with the Simple Revitalising Eye Roll On which has a metal roller ball applicator which is very cooling underneath the eyes and tends to wake you up even before the product has come out. The actual product is very refreshing and also feels very hydrating. I then move on to my Clean and Clear Skin Energising Daily Facial Scrub. I have really sensitive skin, so normally I steer away from face scrubs as they tend to irritate my skin, however this one is very gentle on the skin. It contains mini 'beads' which exfoliate without being too harsh. I then finish off with my Garnier Moisture Match in Normal to Dry Skin. This is just a very lightweight moisturiser which keeps my skin feeling hydrated for the rest of the day.
After I have removed my makeup (usually with Nivea makeup wipes) I wash my face with my Yes To Cucumbers Daily Gel Cleanser. I am a really big fan of this cleanser, it cleans my skin well without irritating it or drying it out. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and is very soothing. Once a week I like to then use the Simple Deep Cleansing Face Mask. This mask helps clear my skin when I have a bit of a breakout, and is really handy to do just before bed as it only needs to be left on for three minutes. After that I apply my Simple Rapid Action Spot Zapper to any blemishes that I have which helps to dry them out. Finally I then apply my Nivea Rich Regenerating Night Cream. This has to be my favourite product in my skincare routine at the moment. It leaves my skin feeling really soft and keeps it looking healthy and dewy.
