It’s taken a while, but I’m finally pretty set with a skincare routine. A few newbies have been added recently, but these are all staples.
Firstly, these Body Shop products. Which you may recognise, I recently purchased and wrote about .
The Body Shop Cleansing Facial Wash I use every day and night, which I love. It’s so light on the skin and removes makeup well. Then I use The Body Shop Clarifying Toner, again, day and night. It really refreshes the skin.
Every other day or three, I use The Body Shop Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator. This was the product that first led me to the Seaweed Collection, it’s brilliant. I also use The Body Shop Ionic Clay Mask. I love how it tightens the skin.
The Body Shop Pore Perfecter I use now and again, in a morning, mainly on makeup days. It’s very much like a primer, so I alternate between this and Maybelline Baby Skin at the moment.
I sometimes add The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Reviver in, before the Pore Perfecter. It’s a serum, so has a similar texture. I can really feel it sinking into my skin and gives it a tang! (plus it smells tangy!) I generally only use this in the mornings.
I’ve been using the Olay 7 Effects products for a good four months now and I love them. They obviously can’t eliminate the wrinkles I already have, but I’m hoping that they’ll slow down the aging process and deter any more from coming!
I use the Day moisturiser and the Night moisturiser daily.
The Olay CC Cream I use on ‘make up free days’, just so I feel I have some coverage, without the time and effort of concealors, foundation, powders etc. It’s really light on my skin and the shade fair to medium suits me well.
