Updated Skincare Routine

by - 14:58:00

It's been a while and a few things have been changed/added so I thought I would give you guys a little update. 

I'm still thoroughly enjoying Oskia's Renaissance Cleansing Gel (£28), but I've added the Super Facialist Vitamin C cleansing oil (£10.99) and it's love. This citrusy oil cleanses beautifully and I can honestly say that my skin is brighter than pre-use. For just over £10 it's a great find. For those lazy days I trust Garnier's Micellar Water to de-grub my face. It's cheap and quite good (not great on waterproof mascara but you can't have it all for £5).

La Roche Posay's Serozinc (£8.50) has been a constant as have the First Aid Beauty pads (£22). Both are effective and well priced. Previously I was only acid toning in the evenings but I've added the Pixi Glow Tonic (£18) to try and maximise the effects of such a treatment. Using this in the morning and the pads at night has really made such a difference. I've been experiencing breakouts and this duo have sorted things out quick time. It's safe to say the Glow Tonic really is as good as everyone says it is. 

My serum has remained the same but once this bottle is done I'm going back to my beloved Hydraluron (£24.99). The Vichy (£22.50) has been perfectly fine but it hasn't done anything miraculous. The eye cream situation follows a very similar thread really. Vichy's Awakening Eye Balm (£15) is quite average. As a result I wouldn't recommend and will be reverting back to Clinique's All About Eyes (£26.50) as soon as it's done. Maybe it's just me, but Vichy as a whole really haven't impressed me.

In terms of moisturising, Clarins Lotus Oil (£33) has become a fast favourite of mine for evenings. It smells heavenly and is just what my combination skin needs. I really can't fault it. This next one might shock you but I've actually been loving the Garnier Protect and Glow moisturiser. It has SPF 20, smells lovely and hydrates without being greasy. The biggest plus is the teeny tiny price tag (£3.99!).

For treatment there remains only one worth mentioning. The Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme mask (£39.50) is everything you need for that glowing, celebrity skin. The scent is definitely an acquired taste but there's no denying the results. This stuff really works. 

And that's about it. I've stuck to the good and probably won't be switching things up too much anymore. I've learnt my lesson it's safe to say. No one likes pesky pimples after all, especially when you're well out of your teenage years.
