Skincare Routine - SS14 Edition

In the Spring/Summer I like to switch up my skincare routine and here's what I've been using and loving. 


As you can see I use a range of high-street and high-end brands


Makeup Removal 


Above are the products that I use to take off my makeup. The first product on the left is the Nivea soothing Cleansing Mousse for dry and sensitive skin - love this stuff; it's cheap and is like a face wipe in a bottle! I do it in the bath/shower just before I wash my face. 
If I don't use the Nivea mousse I use the Clarins duo; this is the cleansing milk and toning lotion for combination or oily skin (I got it as a set in the sale for £20) - they are great together and don't irritate my skin. 
A new edition is the Simple 'Kind To Eyes' eye makeup remover which is AMAZING. I use to use a Boots Botanics one but hated the oily residue it left but this is like water that melts away your mascara and shadow! 

Washing and exfoliating 


My current face wash is the Simple 'Kind To Skin' moisturising facial wash which is an all-round good value face wash - no complaints here. 
If my skin needs exfoliating I use the Clarins 'Gentle Refiner' exfoliating cream which I got in the set with the cleansing milk and toning lotion. I've had really bad skin recently which is bugging me SO MUCH so I've been trying to get rid of the pimples on my forehead and the dry skin that's left - great stuff but very expensive for full-size. 

Moisturising


I love love LOVE this Benefit skincare duo - Triple Performing facial emulsion and the 'It's Potent' eye cream. SO GOOD and worth the hefty price tag because they last ages and they actually work! The eye cream hydrates and reduces dark circles; the moisturiser is thin but so hydrating with SPF 15. A cheaper alternative is the Simple hydrating light moisturiser that still works well but takes longer to sink in and has no SPF protection but great for the money. 

Hope this was helpful and that you got some good advice if you were looking to change a few steps in your skincare routine!

See you soon and stay insane!
