Current Skincare

Welcome back!

Since I’ve not done a skincare routine in a while, and I showed a few of these products in my last beauty haul , I thought I’d do some mini reviews on them. This is slightly L’Oréal heavy, it’s not a sponsored post (I wish!) I’m just really loving their skincare at the moment.

Taking my make up off:

L'Oréal Micellar Water & Simple Eye Makeup Remover

To take my make up off I’ve been using the L’Oréal Micellar Water and the Simple Kind To Skin Eye Make Up remover.  The Simple eye make up remover doesn’t take all my mascara off, but its gentle on the eyes which I like.

Face wash:

L'Oréal Pure Clay Detox Wash & KIKO Purifying Scrub

I really loved the L’Oréal Pure Clay detox face mask, so when I saw they had brought it out in a daily face wash I had to try it. So far I haven’t been disappointed, it’s really gentle on the skin, and leaves it feeling really fresh. I use the KIKO scrub a few times a week, because my skin is dry and sensitive I don’t like to over exfoliate it. The beads in this are tiny, which means it isn’t harsh on the skin at all, and leaves your skin feeling really clean, without irritating it.

Skin treats:

If I’m honest I much prefer the L’Oréal detox mask to this one. This ones ok, but I can’t keep it on too long as it starts to itch. It’s ok for now but I’ll be going back to the detox mask as soon as this one has run out. The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish is a lovely product to use on a “pamper” night, and leaves your skin feeling really soft. The main reason I don’t use this every day is because I’m slightly lazy, and I prefer my cleanser and toner to be the same brand.

Cleanse and tone:

L'Oréal Fine Flowers Cleanser & Toner

I think this might be my favourite cleanser and toner combination ever. My skin was really dry and breaking out before I started using these, so when I spotted them in sainsburys and saw they were formulated especially for dry and sensitive skin I thought I’d give them a try. They’re really gentle on the skin (are you sensing a theme here) and smell divine. I’ve also seen a lot of improvement since I introduced these into my skincare. I think the product size is really generous as well for the price I paid.

Moisturising:

L'Oréal Triple Active Day & Night Moisturisers

Surprise! another L’Oréal product. They are killing it with the skincare at the moment.  I picked these up after I bought the cleanser and toner to see if they would work well with them and so far so good. The day moisturiser is more lightweight then the night one and absorbs really well. I like the fact the night time one is a little thicker, so it can really sink into the skin overnight. Since I’ve been using these I have far less dryness on my skin and my face feels a lot less “tight” after showering too.

I’m not too sure why but my blog seems to have a major issue with uploading the images of the eye cream I use, but currently I’m using the Simple eye cream for daywear. It’s not my favourite eye cream I’ve ever used, but it’s gentle on the eyes and leaves them feeling hydrated.

And that’s my current skincare routine! Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried any of these products and what your must have skincare items are!

Have a great week guys xx
