My Daily Skincare Routine

If you follow me on Instagram you will know how fond I am of the odd selfie or two. This means that I need to take the best care of my skin I can. I love makeup but I also love skincare too and I make sure I remove my makeup every night or at least most nights...I also try to avoid face wipes as they just dry my skin out, but there are times when I can only muster the energy to use a wipe.



I thought I would share my current favourite products and ones that I am introducing to my routine. I would love to hear some of your hero or must use products. I am 43, with what I always thought was combination skin, but as I am getting older it is more oily.  My skin isn’t too sensitive but I am prone to hormonal spots around my chin. I also am becoming more aware of pigmentation from the sun too - ah the joys of ageing so I always use a sunscreen every day. 

Morning Routine

I like to use a non-foaming facial wash in the morning and I have loved this cleanser by La Roche Posay Effaclar - so much so it has nearly very finished. I would defintely buy again as it has worked so well for me. I then remove any remnants of eye makeup. Although my skin isn't sensitive my eyes can be, and I love Nivea’s Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover.  This is such a good product and so reasonably priced - I always re-purchase when I have finished one.  Toner next and in the morning in an attempt to wake myself up I like to use a spray toner and love the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Sprtizer. This smells so lovely and I spray it during the days sometimes for a little skin boost. 



I am a big fan of facial oils even though my skin is oily. I find they work so well with my skin and definitely help to keep it soft. I am loving my Organic Facial Oil By Sarah London which is natural and organic and is such a lovely product. Eyes next and I have been liking the La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Yeux at the moment but to be honest I have yet to find my definitive morning eye cream and have tried a good few....maybe I am expecting too much from the eye creams - they can’t work miracles on black circles it turns out. I then mositurise and I have been enjoying the Malin + Goetz Vitamin e face moisturiser which is lovely and light and which I have liked over the warmer months. However, as winter and the weather and central heating dries my skin out, I like to use a thicker moisturiser and this Gatineau Defi lift 3D one seems perfect.  I was kindly gifted the Gatineau products so will let you know what I think. I do also really like my Simple moisturiser which I find nice and light on my skin. 



Evening Routine

My evening routine is similar in each stage to my morning routine but with different products. I like to remove my makeup with a cleanser and a muslin cloth - I alternate between a balm and a liquid. My current favourite liquid cleanser is Youth to the People’s Kale + Green Tea Spinach Vitamins Superfood Face wash. I have really enjoyed this product as it’s full of good things and does a good job at getting all my layers of makeup off. When I am in the mood for a balm I love to use the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. I have used this on and off for a couple of years and always come back to it and this one came in my British Beauty Box kindly sent to me this week.



As I do like to go quite full-on with my eye makeup and makeup in general, I usually have to do a double cleanse. For me this just involves going over my skin with some Micellar water. I am currently using the Bioderma one but I do also love the Garnier ones too.  Then for my evening toner I use Pixi Glow Tonic a couple of days a week or La Roche Posay Serozinc. I don’t really use any acids etc at the moment but I think I should be so let's hear some recommendations about what ones you use and love. 



An oil is also an essential part of my evening skincare routine and for the last few years I have used Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate and I love it. I don’t always use a moisturiser in the evening - I don’t really know why but in winter I will probably use the Gatineau one to help my skin out.  I do enjoy doing an evening face mask once a week and at the moment I am using Lowengrips Hydration Mask, which I like a lot. I also love a sheet mask and am looking forward to trying my Patchology ones, especially the eye and lips one. Let me know of any other ones you recommend - I keep meaning to try Charlotte Tilbury’s clay mask and sheet masks as they get rave reviews.


As I get older looking after my skin is so important to me - it’s this or I turn into Cher which to be fair is rather appealing....

  1. It's so important to switch up the products between summer and winter isn't it? I love using facial oils too and you've reminded to get my Pixi Tonic back out of the cupboard for that extra clean feel. Lots of brands here I've not seen but will look out for. I'm keen to try La Roche Posay but I don't have sensitive/oily skin, which just seems to be the reason why many people use it. Mine's just old! LOL. The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is permanently on my wish list. Great post Carole xx

  14. Does reality lie in ladies being effective vocation ladies to the avoidance of their own female nature; in being subject to the deference of others for their self-esteem; or in their being simple actual objects of joy? Or on the other hand would they say they are called to discover the reality of their pride in the model of Mary, Virgin Mother of God, who reflects and partakes in the Divine Truth, Beauty, and Goodness of which all creation is called to reflect and partake in?

  18. Time is one of the essential factors which must be critically studied as far as any relationship is concerned. Relationships need time to grow and mature to the stage, where all the parties involved must have self confidence and the ability to trust one another. It is on this basis that, most relationships crumble. This is a foundational basis for any type of relationship. The amount of time use to understudy partners in relationship is directly related to the time limits of such relationship. signs he is into you

Though this industry is growing at a very good pace, besides achieving a negligible share in the global market, still it needs to make severe efforts to stand amongst international fashion market in various aspects. 풀싸롱
