Today I'm going to be sharing my skincare routine with you because good skincare is a base for good make-up. There is no point in spending thousands of pounds on make-up when you don't look after your skin. Your skin will thank you later when you about thirty or something. I only started to look after my skin properly once I hit 20 and noticed that my skin was changing a lot rather quickly. First, let me start with the fact that I know that my skincare routine is rather laborious but it works. Since I have been doing all these steps, I noticed that my skin is looking clearer, brighter and pores were minimised. My inspiration for these steps were the Korean 5 steps skincare.
1. Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 wash and mask - before I started to go a little bit skincare crazy, this has been the only face wash/mask I use because it's cheap, multi-purpose and doesn't break me out. Although, I do have to say that it really doesn't take off all of my make-up. The mask is pretty good too, I like to use this as a mask about once a week when I remember. I think this is my third tube.
2. Lush Let The Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser - initially, I did not like this cleanser at all. I'm not a massive fan of the sweet toffee smell and it broke me out the first few times that I used it. However, I persisted with this cleanser/forced all of my housemates to help me finish it up. I started to enjoy using this as a daily exfoliator/scrub whilst I massage my face. I know this says cleanser but it still doesn't take off all of my make-up and although it leaves my skin feeling nice and soft, it also makes my face a little bit oily. I would not actually repurchase this again.
3. The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleanser - I actually can not believe that I haven't made a post about this cleanser yet because it is by far the best cleanser I've ever tried. It is amazing for dry skin peeps, like myself because it removes all make-up and leaves my skin feeling clean, nourished and soft. I like using this to remove traces of Lush cleanser too. All you have to do is massage the cream onto your face and remove the cream with cotton pad. AH-MAY-ZING.
4. Tea Tree Cleanser and Toner - I brought this because I was quite desperate to add a toner in my skincare routine. So, I know that I'm triple cleansing but this is actually not bad because it removes traces of all make-up and cleanser. Making my skin feeling nice and fresh because of the Tea Tree ingredient.
5. Lancome Visionnaire - this is a sample from my purchase with Debenhams a while back. I really shouldn't have tried this, do you know why? because it's freaking expensive and I have fallen in love with it. But I can't afford/justify spending money on it. After I started using this serum, I noticed that my skin feels a lot tighter, more radiant and it really did helps absorb the moisturiser. I normally just use a very tiny bit of this and massage it onto my face. Now I'm on a hunt for a similar serum but at a fraction of the price. Wish me luck because I need it.
6. Vitamin E Eye Cream - honestly, I don't really notice anything different from using this eye cream but I still use it because I brought it and maybe it will make more difference in the future...maybe.
7a. SteamCream - you all know this is my holy grail moisturiser. My first ever post on this blog was about this little beauty. I thought that it was time for me to change my moisturiser (when I started trying WEI). Only to realised that "if it ain't broken, don't fix it". So SteamCream don't worry, I'm still your regular customer.
7b. Dr. Jart Water-Max Sleeping Mask - this is what I normally use at night when I'm too lazy to do the whole Serum - Eye Cream - Moisturise thing. It helps keeps my skin nice and plump-like. I did a full review of this a while back here. I know this step should totally be 5b. but the crazy old me got confused.
7c. WEI Royal Ming Firming and Hydrating Cream - tried this, wasn't that impressed. Especially when it costs a total bomb. Smells a bit like tea, which is nice but still left me with dry patches. Trying to use all of this up, even though, there isn't a lot in the tube. Let down.
That's all for my skincare routine guys! Do you think that it is a bit too excessive?
Any recommendation for a good serum?
