Current skincare routine

I have finally found key products that work amazing for my skincare routine (both day & night) & I wanted to share them with you.

I have the most bipolar skin ever, it regularly changes every few months from too dry to normal to spot prone so you can imagine it’s taken me years to finally find a skincare routine that is suitable for me. I’ve stuck with this routine for a few months now as I saw results straight away & it’s worked amazingly for me since. My skin has finally settled down and I finally have smoother, even & a lot clearer skin.

I’ve got 8 main steps in my skincare: Oil cleanser, Face wash, Exfoliate, Toner, Peel, Mask, Moisturise & Spot Treatment.

Oil Cleanser:

Boscia – Black Charcoal Cleansing Cloth
Banila Co – Clean it Zero Oil Cleanser
I love that this cleansing cloth is charcoal. This oil cleanser is by far the best oil cleanser I’ve ever used. It’s a balm to oil formula & leaves my skin feeling so clean without being oily.

Face wash & Exfoliator:
P1020256
Clearasil – Ultra 5 in 1 Exfoliating Scrub. 
Glamglow – Mud to Foam Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser 
I absolutely love the clearasil exfolating scrub because as it states on the bottle it helps reduce pimple size, excess oil, blocked pores, pimple marks & blackheads. The Glamglow mask helps with excess oil, makeup & unclog your pores. It’s also got a bit of a menthol feel so it’s perfect in the summer & leaves the face feeling so fresh.

Cleansing Tool:
P1020257
I love using this brush from Olay when using the Banila co oil cleanser or Glamglow cleanser, it really made a difference in my skincare.

Micellar Water:
P1020261
Bioderma – Sensibio Micellar Water
Sephora – Charcoal Micellar Water
These two are without a double the best Micellar Waters, I love using this to make sure I’ve gotten rid of every single bit of dirt or makeup thats left on my skin after cleansing. It leaves my face feeling so fresh & clean

Peel:

Toner:
P1020262
Kiehls – Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner & Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence

Mask:
P1020268
Glamglow – Flashmud & Thirtymud
L’oreal – Pure Clay Mask
The Flashmud is to brighten the skin & even out skintones it’s helped me so much with any pimple scarring & the thirsty mud is the best hydrating mask I’ve used as a lot of the times hydrating masks are what makes me break out. & Finally I’ve recently started using the Lóreal pure clay mask in charcoal & absolutely love the way it leaves my skin after. It is quite a drying mask so it’s best to use it once a week or so.

Moisturise:
P1020265
Petal – Rose & Lavender Face Cream 
Cetaphil – Daily Facial Moisturiser 
Kiehls – Midnight Recovery Eye Cream 
Kiehls – Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
I like to use the Cetaphil Moisturiser in the day as it is a more lightweight moisturiser while the Petal Facial Cream is a lot more thick and creamy so I like using that at night. The two eye creams are my absolute favourite, it helps reduce wrinkle and brightens up under my eyes.

P1020275
Mario Badescu – Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater
Tarte – Maracuja Oil
Also to keep my skin hydrated I love these two products. I think these two are differently a key in my skincare routine.

Spot Treatments:
P1020269
Mario Badescu Skincare – Drying Lotion 
The Body Shop – Tea Tree Oil 
I absolutely love these two for any emergency spot treatments. The Mario Badescu drying lotion just saves my life when I get a pimple I put it on before I go to bed, wake up & it’s cone down completely.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post!

  1. Absolutely love the products you have mentioned. I have been wanting to get myself the Mario spot treatment kit. I am 27 and my skin still acts like a teenager sometimes!! I can totally understand when you say your skin is different every now and then. Same as mine! Sometimes I go totally dry and sometimes SOOO oily its crazy! I will try out the Banila Co cleanser as I have been meaning to buy one for long now! Great post!!
