Today i thought i would share with you my current skincare routine. I have extremely sensitive skin so i try to keep the amount of products i use to an absolute minimum, this also works well as i find if i use too many different product's my skin can get confused and can react quite badly. As i said before i have sensitive skin that can be dry from time to time but for some bizarre reason i suffer with very oily eyelids. I'm very lucky when it comes to spots and break outs as i literally have extremely clear skin, it's very rare that ill get a spot and i put it down to my skincare routine working well for me. Anywhooo here's the run down of products i use in my skincare routine.
B.Pure Micellar Water and Simple Eye Make-up Remover
These two little beaut's are essential in my skincare routine. The B.Pure Micellar Water from Superdrug is an amazing yet very gentle cleanser that removes all traces of makeup and impurities even on the most sensitive skins, it just leaves my skin completely clean, soft with that fresh feeling and I've never experienced any problems with it at all. The Simple Eye Make-up Remover is just brilliant, I've found other eye makeup removers to be too strong and they tend to sting my eyes slightly but this is so gentle and never stings or irritates my eyes at all and removes my eye makeup in seconds even waterproof mascara. I use both of these in the evenings.
Superdrug's Large Cotton Wool Pads
I use these large cotton wool squares with my cleanser and eye makeup remover as they are just so quick and easy to use and saves you wasting all those little oval cotton wool pads, i only need to use 1 of these for my whole face and then one for both my eyes, i get mine from Superdrugs baby section for around £1.30.
Garnier Simply Essentials Cleansing Wipes
As far as cleansing wipes go i usually buy what ever seems to be on offer at the time as long as they are targeted towards sensitive skin. As for removing makeup with these, well that's a huge no no for me as they only remove a small amount of the surface makeup up and really aren't that great for a full cleanse but i find them great to use after my morning shower just to refresh and cleanse your skin as i would of fully cleansed the evening before.
Simple Moisturising Facial Wash
When i feel like i want a real deep cleanse ill use this facial wash. I tend to stay well away from facial scrubs or face masks as they leave my skin really red, sore and blotchy so this facial wash is a must for me when i want to have a thorough cleanse. The facial wash is a foaming soap free wash that deep cleanses and moisturises your skin, i use this 2-3 times a week and it leaves your skin feeling super soft and super clean.
Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser
As i suffer with some dry patches on my face i always go for the simple rich moisturiser instead of the light option, it works well on my skin and doesn't turn oily during the day and i love the fact that it sits under my foundation a dream and doesn't make my makeup slip at all.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Facial Sunscreen 50+
After receiving this in my Glossybox a while back i honestly thought i wouldn't use this much however the weather in the UK recently has been so super hot that I'm glad i have this in my life. It blends into your skin really quickly leaving a matte finish which i love as usually sun creams can leave you with that horrible oily tacky feeling to the skin, its also water resistant, non perfumed and paraben free so great for sensitive skin. Since using it I've not experienced any problems at all and would highly recommend it.
So that's my skincare routine, its not a lot of products but they all seem to work really well together and keep my skin clear and healthy, you may have noticed i don't use night creams or toners but for me their just not necessary.
I would love to know if your skincare rountine is anything like mine???
