Everybody wants to look flawless right? And what do we do to try and achieve it? Buy a foundation costing £40 and then a primer for £20 then we realise we have really bad under eyes so we invest in concealers so almost around £50-£80 on trying to achieve flawless skin and while we’re at it we are destroying the skin more!! So recently I decided to spend more money on skin care to make my skin better which resulted in making any foundation look flawless!! See I believe you can make any product work but in their own way.
So I switched up EVERYTHING I used except my trusty St.Ives face scrub. So firstly I am so grateful for the ladies who introduced me to all these amazing products, my skin has transformed and I have never been so confident in my own skin!
So starting off with removing my makeup, if I am wearing makeup I use the Garnier Micellar cleansing water for my face and for my eye makeup I use the Nivea eye makeup cleanser, never in my life have I seen such an amazing product!
Next, I cleanse again or go straight to this step if I’m not wearing makeup. I am still switching up cleansers I am currently searching for the one! But till then I am liking the Pixi Cleanser this leaves my skin feeling REALLY smooth and looking bright, however I am still contemplating whether it’s a favourite, another thing I like about this cleanser is that I can use it as a mask, so I will apply it and leave it on for about 10 minutes then wash it off as normal. The next cleanser I have been using and actually really been liking this because it is a cleanser, toner and moisturiser and I picked it up for £1.75! It is the Avon Care 3 in 1 cleanser, this is priced at £3.50 but I got it on offer, and I am really liking it, it makes my skin look and feel fresh and bright and it doesn’t dry my skin which is the best thing ever I hate cleansers that dry my skin out!! Lastly the third cleanser I am using and I am not really liking it is the L’Oreal fine flower gel wash, I have done a mini review on this on my Instagram you can read that HERE.
After Cleansing I scrub, I don’t always scrub I don’t want to dry my skin out but the only scrub I ever use and have used is the St.Ives scrub, I know a lot of people have said this scrub did not work for them, but I love it!
If I am going to use a mask it’s usually after scrubbing and depending on what products I have used already then I pick a mask it’s usually between the L’Oreal pure clay masks, the Detox one and Glow one are my favourite!
For my eyes I use the Vitamin E Eye cream from the Superdrug range, so far I am like it makes my eye area feel smooth which makes applying makeup on easier, it also gives me a ‘wake up’ feeling.
Now it’s time to put all the moisture back into the skin and I have Oily combination skin so finding a moisturiser that’s moisturising enough and doesn’t make my skin more oily is pretty hard and annoying so I’m floating between moisturisers. I use to use the Nivea moisturiser for sensitive skin, I don’t have sensitive skin but I liked it because it was light, well I thought it was until it started to make my skin look greasy! So I got the Mac studio moisture fix, this is really lightweight I love this moisturiser however, £22 for a moisturiser is pretty expensive so I am looking for a cheaper alternative. The best thing that has happened since I changed my skin are routine is that my dry skin has gone less noticeable, the facial sprays I have been using have cleared my skin and kept it hydrated so my skin isn’t as dry as it used to be. My favourite facial spray I use every single day without a doubt is the
My favourite facial spray I use every single day without a doubt is the Mario Badescu Facial spray this spray is AMAZING I reviewed it in a previous post which you can find HERE. It has helped clear marks on my face and kept it hydrated I can’t talk about this spray enough! I love it! Some days When I feel like my skin is more on the oily side I don’t even bother using a cream I just pray this all over my face and neck, it’s really made my skin feel and look better!
I have also been liking the Vitamin E serum from the Superdrug range, I still haven’t decided whether I like it or not but what I do know is that it makes my skin feel so smooth! A lot of people have claimed the Vitamin E range has broke their skin out, I’m still not sure about it! The same range have a hydrating must which is another great product to hydrate your skin I have a love hate relationship with this it can make you look oily and feel sticky if you use too much, but when the right amount is used it can be so good! I am going to be doing a full review on some of the products I have in the Vitamin E range so look out for that!
Toners something I switch up between however I have found an amazing toner, I am loving it so far I only got it very recently but omg I love it! It is the La-Roche Posay Serozonic Spray, this toner is for oily skin which is perfect for me, it slightly tingles, but it’s a good tingle!
The Mario Badescu facial spray is another spray I use as a toner it is so versatile you can use it to set makeup hydrate and tone your face, you can even use it on your hair!! If you don’t already own it, you need it!
Lastly the latest edition to my morning skin care routine is the Nip & Fab Tummy Fix, When I first saw this on the Superdrug website I was so curious and HAD to check it out, so far I haven’t seen results however I am hoping its one of those products that needs to be used over a long period of time before you can see results!#
I don’t use all these products daily I switch them up depending on the weather or how my skin is, and remember guys what works for me may not work for you and I have Oily/Combination skin, just thought I would add that in, incase anyone wanted to try the products out although I do believe some of these if not most are actually good for dry skin!
Thank you for reading my post, this was just my morning routine, would anyone like to see an evening skin care routine? Let me know in the comments below and follow me on Instagram @beautybyaneesa_ to keep up with what I am loving!
