Having a consistent skincare routine is so so important to keeping your skin looking fresh and glowy. I’ve decided to share the products I am using at the minute and absolutely loving.
After trying out so many drugstore products that just do not work for me I decided to splurge on some more high end products. I feel like you can’t really put a price on skincare as it is so important. Of course if drugstore stuff works for you then go you! but for me it just doesn’t work on my skin. I picked up this Liz Earle set specifically for dry/sensitive skin in my local boots store for £45 which includes the very famous cleanse and polish, skin tonic, moisturiser, an exfoliator and two muslin cloths.
I don’t use makeup wipes to remove my makeup as they do not remove all the product at all and also they’re just so so drying on my face. So the first thing I do is just wash my face with water to remove most of my makeup then I pump some of the cleanse and polish on to my fingers and rub it in to my face and then wipe my face with a wet muslin cloth.
The next step I do is take a cotton wool pad and pour some of the tonic boost on to it and rub this all over my face, this step always shocks me as you look at the pad after and see how much makeup is on there even after you thought it was all off, another reason why makeup wipes are no good!!
Then I use the moisturiser and oh my god my face feels amazing! It leaves your skin feeling so hydrated but it also soaks in quite quick which is what I like. I think this is now my holy grail moisturiser, up until now it was always the benefit one for me but this one is 100 times better!
I do this routine every night but not every morning as my skin is quite sensitive I don’t like to overload it with products. Sometimes I will do it in the morning it all just depends on how my skin is at the time but usually I just wash my face with water and apply my moisturiser.
I don’t use the exfoliator everyday, I use it about once a week it depends on how my skin is as although I got the set specifically for dry/sensitive skin the exfoliator is just for any skin type so I don’t want it to be too harsh for my skin.
Aswell as using these liz earle products I also drinks lots of water, at least 2 litres a day and I wear factor 50 suncream every single day on my face, so many people underestimate how much damage the sun actually does to your skin even in the winter , wearing suncream will help keep your skin looking youthful. I do also suffer from an allergy to the sun causing my face to come out in a rash which is why I use such a high factor. I have the sunsense sun cream which is not oily at all it leaves your skin with a slight glow and it can be worn alone or under makeup, I really recommend it for a face suncream!
Thanks for reading and feel free to leave a comment telling me your best skincare products! I’m looking for some good face masks at the minute so please recommend!!
