I hope you’ve all had a good Monday and have a good rest of your week!
Today I’m doing a blog post on my current skincare routine, I say current as I’m pretty sure it’ll change within a month.
Skincare is subject to skin type so in order for you to know if these products may be of benefit to you it’s probably best I disclose my skin type… (drum roll please)… dry and sensitive mostly but in the summer it can get oily.
I would also like to apologise in advance for the quality of the photographs as the lighting was awful (ugh English weather) and I couldn’t lay the bottles flat as they wouldn’t stop rolling…
The order in which I do my skincare routine are as follows:
- Spot cream/gel
- Eye cream
- Primer…..makeup as usual.
My morning and afternoon skincare routines are different.
In the morning I usually cleanse my face using The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser.
Then before I leave for work I use Dr Botanicals ‘Tropical Invigorating Cream’ duo moisturiser.
However in the afternoon after my shower/bath I will do a longer skincare routine.
First I wash my face using The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Skin Clearing FacialWash.
Then I use a cotton pad to apply The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner on my face and neck.
After this I apply LUSHs ‘Grease Lightning’ spot treatment gel over any blemishes I have on my face.
Check out my review here.
Then use The Body Shops’ Vitamin C Skin Reviver Instant Smoother and spread this over my T-zones. (Also works as a great primer)
Then I use The Body Shops’ Vitamin E Eye Cream, I apply this on my eyelid and underneath them.
After the eye cream has dried I then apply the Dr Botanicals ‘Tropical Invigorating Cream’ duo moisturiser again.
When that’s soaked into my skin I then apply The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Oil onto my T-zones and gently pat it down using two fingers.
That’s my skin routine almost finished!
Once/twice a week (depending on how many days I wear makeup) I exfoliate my face using The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub.
I also use face masks 3 days a week, I normally do 2 days of day masks and one sleeping mask.
I use L’Oreal Pure Clay masks as a day mask.
I use two different sleeping masks, alternatively to how my skin is.
If my skin is feeling dry I use The dr Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask. Check out its review here
If I have a few blemishes/spots I use The Body Shops’ Tea Tree Anti-imperfection Night Mask.
That’s a wrap!
A full review of The Body Shops’ Tea Tree range will be posted soon!
Thank you all so much for reading! I hope it’s been useful and please leave a comment what your favourite part of your skincare routine is.
