My Current Skincare Routine

We're in the middle of summer! So I thought what better time to show you my skincare routine/favourites.

First off I always use a cleansing water to take my make-up off as opposed to make-up wipes, I feel as though cleansing water is a lot more gentle on my skin and wipes can be a bit rough around my eye area. At the moment I'm loving the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. The first main advantage of it is its £4.99 at boots and works just as well as Bioderma! It's very soothing and removes every bit of make-up easily. All I really want from a make-up remover.

After removing my make-up I'll use the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I just use this to make sure every bit of make-up is off and it feels like a dream when your using the warm cloth against your skin, it's all natural too! For this I use it morning & evening all over my face and neck.

So, I've made sure all of my make-up is off so next is time for exfoliating. I won't do this everyday as I think it can be a bit rough against my skin, although this is the most gentle one I've used yet. It doesn't seem like exfoliators like me? This is another product from Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator.

Now I've exfoliated my face its time to put some radiance into my skin with the REN radiance perfection serum, I love this serum, it was a present last Christmas and definitely now something I couldn't live without. I put this on morning and evening, It's made such a difference on my skin, I apply a small amount on the back of my hand and apply it all over my face and neck.

So now on to moisturising, which is my favourite part. I use the Murad Ultimate Moisture For Eyes I love this eye cream & instantly became a holy grail. I apply underneath my eye and all over my lid up to my brow morning & evening. It leaves me hydrated straight away. When I apply it in the morning I find my concealer looks so much better with it. It's quite an expensive product at £57.00 but you literally need the tiniest amount and it goes a long way. 

Finally I put my all over face moisturiser. For this, my evening time moisturiser of choice is the Soap & Glory Night & Flight Hydrant Moisturiser. This is amazing and the reason i only use this in the evening is because it's quite thick. In the morning I'll use Simple day cream as this is a lot lighter for me to then put my makeup on. The Soap & Glory moisturiser leaves me instantly hydrated and smells beautiful too, like citrusy? The next morning I'll wake up with baby skin, yay!

What's your favourite morning & evening skincare products? Can you recommend me any other exfolaitors?
