I don’t know about you, but my skincare routine is always changing because I like to try new products/formulations. This post will include my recent favourite products. I believe my skin routine is very simple but it’s something I’m planning to go in more depth and learn more about it. By the way, I have combination skin.
Right after jumping out of the bed, I usually wash my face with plain cold water (except during winter days). I gently dry my face and then I apply a day cream from L’oreal, the Triple Active day cream. This is a very good moisturizer recommended for normal to combination skin types. This product is not heavy on the skin, it absorbs quickly but at the same time leaving that sensation of moisturizer skin. Perfect to be applied before make-up.
Since the eyes area is very sensitive, I like to apply a different product to this area. I apply a roll on for under eyes from Botanics – refreshing eye roll on all bright. The thing I like about this product is the fact that it comes with a metal roll on. Believe me, in the morning that roll on is so refreshing that helps me to wake up. Make sure you check the rest of the range because they may have an eye roll more suitable for you.
For those days I want to give my skin an extra boost (especially on cold days) I like to use the extraordinary facial oil from L’oreal. Yes, I know this is an oil, but I promise it’ll absorb into the skin (unless you wash your face in it). This is the first oil product I’ve used on my skin because I was always afraid of the texture. To be honest I was quite apprehensive in the beginning. After a couple of days of using it, let me tell you, it’s an amazing product and smells lovely. I even used it on my hands! Works amazingly and it lasts for ages (you just need a couple of drops each time).
After the oil is completely absorbed, I like to apply a product from the same range – the extraordinary oil night cream from L’oreal. Smells amazing as the oil and it feels very comfortable on the skin. I will be honest, the first time I applied this product it burned a little on my skin (just for a couple of seconds), but that never happened again since then (maybe my skin was more sensitive on that day).
I thought it would be worth to mention two other products that I use on a daily basis. One of those products is a make-up remover – camomile sumptuous cleansing butter from The Body Shop. This is my HOLY GRAIL. I’ve been using it since forever and I’ve recommended to everyone that I know, so you may guess how much I love this product. I used so many make-up removers that after a couple of days of applying them, my skin became extremely sensitive to them, mainly around my eyes. So you can imagine how I felt when I found this cleansing butter. It was a long battle, but now I will never swap it. As the name of the product suggests, its a butter that melts your make-up so easily and effortless (even waterproof make-up). Due to its buttery texture, my skin has never reacted to it.
For those days when my skin needs an exfoliation, I like to use exfoliating pads. I normally wet them first to make them slightly softer and then with a tiny bit of my body wash (yes, I know I need to find a proper cleanser) I exfoliate my skin to remove all those dead cells. The skin feels so good afterward.
So, this is my skincare routine. Let me know which products you are using at the moment on your skincare routine. Is there any product that you couldn’t live without?
Have an amazing day,
