Skincare Routine // Autumn.

Hello lovelies, sorry for the lack of posts recently, back to school has had me stressed out. Anyway I return with a new blogpost. I will be showing you my most loved skincare bits and pieces for autumn, with the colder months coming they bring dry skin so ill be showing you how I keep my skin in as good a condition as possible. I will link all products to boots where you can buy them, links will be coloured in pink and will open in a new tab so don't worry about it leaving the blogpost page.

Facial Washes & Cleansers.

I love both of these cleansers for different reasons. The one on the left is a facial wash where the one on the right is more of a non foaming cleanser. The facial wash is 'Simple Refreshing Facial Gel' which is a foaming facial wash, perfect for morning and night use. In the morning to refresh before makeup and at night to remove makeup gently. I love this and it has a pleasing fresh scent which many would class as unscented but I love it. The non foaming cleanser is the 'Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean' which as I said doesnt foam up, it has a very moisturiser like texture to it when applied and removes makeup amazingly and claims to 'clean pores deep' which it does. It leaves my skin feeling amazing.

Micellar Waters.

After cleaning my either my wash or my cleanser I like to remove any makeup residue with a micellar water, I dont like makeup wipes because they seem to take forever to remove my eyemakeup unlike both these products which remove primed eyemakeup in a simple swipe. On the left is the 'Loreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution' which is my least favourite out the 2 because it stings my eyes more, but i do prefer it as a toner, it makes my spots go away and leaves my skin feeling flawless and not to mention It removes makeup quickly without the need for a face wash or gel. The one on the right is the 'Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water' which is amazing like the other one at removing makeup and also good at toning, this one is more gentle on skin and doesnt sting your eyes, i'm glad i bought both and I love the comparison they both have.

Face and Eye Creams.

For general moisturising I have a large range of products, it took me a while to narrow it down to a few but here they are. On the left is my 'Soap and Glory Puffy Eye Attack' and my 'Soap and Glory Beauty Sleep Accelerator', this combo is amazing and for the past 2 months i've been using it daily. The difference its made to my skin is unreal, the eye cream as obliterated my puffy and dark under eyes and the moisturiser has removed all dry and oily spots from my skin making it smooth and easy to work with. I used both these products of a night as they are supposed to be left to soak in overnight hense the name 'Beauty Sleep Accelerator'. On the right is my nifty old 'Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser' which I can always depend on. I use this before makeup and on days where Im not wearing foundation just as a base.

Anyway Guys, thankyou so much for reading and I'll post an update very soon with a schedule and other bits and bobs.

Ily all.
