My skincare 'routine'


Hope everyone’s had a nice week! Today I thought I would show you my skincare ‘routine’. I don’t use this as religiously as you should use a skincare routine but it is what I use to take care of my skin nonetheless. On good days I might just use one of these products and on the days my skin is looking particularly…miserable, I will use all 5!! Maybe if I used these everyday my skin would always be perfect but the world doesn't work that way and no amount of skincare can over power teenage hormones…it’s a battle that I continue to fight even though I will definitely lose. Bless the hearts of the lucky people that don’t get spots (I’m really jealous, plz tell me your secret)! Anyway, now I’m going to show you my skincare routine that we have established isn't a routine…yay!

Btw I’ve linked everything to where you can buy it! You’re welcome x

1. So I wake up, go to the bathroom and then stare at my ugly, red, spotty, greasy face for a bit in the mirror and reflect on life.

2. Then I go ahead and just rinse my face off in the sink ( not literally, just cleaning it ).

3. I then take my mini Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser that I got as a freebie and It’s a cute little travel size, I know soso many people that love this and I love this too ( I am currently deciding if I should buy the full size product, It’s a lot of money for what it is ). Anyway, I put, let’s say a blueberry sized dollop of this on my finger then rub on to my face finishing with my eyes and then take the cloth and run it under the hot tap then gently clean it all off. I use this if that day I was wearing makeup and it just gets rid of it all nicely and makes my skin soft! I have to say I’m not a big fan of the smell!

4. Next I use my Soap & Glory ‘Scrub Your Nose In It’ Facial Scrub on my T-zone to exfoliate and unclog the pores. I use this because my nose is the oily part of my face and this just helps to make my skin all balanced and…normal?! I just apply a small amount to my nose and rub it in then leave for 2 mins and wash it off, it’s a lovely green colour! I am not very impressed with the packaging of Soap & Glory skincare as it's pretty boring and not even pretty!

5. After that, I might use the Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash just to clean off all the other products I used to clean my face :) This is just a cheep and cheerful facial wash that I bought for travelling and for the few times I use it!

6. Now the part that I never fail to use everyday, and that is my Nivea moisturiser I use this to…moisturise?! It’s not the best product in the world but it does the job keeping my skin hydrated and soft.

7. My favourite part is using my Benefit Its Potent eye cream which is just amazing! I use under my eyes but also on my eyelid and also just under my brow because for some reason my skin is really dry there. It’s a great product and It practically opens my eyes in the morning when I could really do with just going back to sleep!            

So there it is, the stuff I put on my face then wash off! Hope you enjoyed this pointless post!

see you later, byeeee x


  1. Great routine girly, I am beautician and for me is much more important to have healthy and glowy skin then to apply tons of make up! :)
    Good job!

  2. I love Liz Earle products! Thanks for sharing this post lovely x
