Updated Skincare Routine - December 2014.

Hello lovelies, as you can see from my page I've been on a long break from blogging but alas, I'm back and better than ever ready to brainstorm some lovely posts for you guys! Lately I've been testing out some new skincare bits and since realising I love them I've incorporated them into my skincare routine, so here we have an updated one. Enjoy.

Step 1 - Before makeup I prep my skin with my 'Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion' then apply my makeup up until my concealer (makeup routine coming soon.) Before I apply anymore makeup I set the current look using my 'Mac Fix +' which adds a subtle dewiness to the look but also works likes a powder to set your makeup. This product also works well with a powder also.

Step 2 - At the end of a long day I'm literally itching to take my face of makeup off, in order to do this i use my 'Soap and Glory - Off your Face' cleansing wipes, these 3-in-1 daily purifying cloths work amazingly to cleanse, tone and exfoliate your face, they remove all makeup including waterproof mascara, these wipes are my holy grail!!

Step 3 - Even though the wipes claim to tone I still love to tone my skin otherwise, I use the 'Simple Soothing Facial Toner' on a small cotton round and work it over my skin in circular motions focusing on my t zone. This removes any dirt clogged into the skin or any makeup I missed with the wipes. 

Step 4 - Now It's time to pick a moisturiser, I vary between 2 at the moment, if my skin is having a good day I use my 'Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser'. I use my middle and index finger together to rub the product around as its a very liquidy consistency. I make sure to focus it around my nose and cheeks as they get the most dry in this weather.

If my skin is having a bad day due to weather or stress I will use the 'First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream'. Wow. This is my holy grail and the product I will levitate towards when I'm in need of some replenishing. I use the palms of my hands to warm the product up and then distribute it evenly around my face.

Step 5 - After around 3 hours or a few minutes before bed I will use 2 overnight products. First I will use the 'Soap and Glory Puffy Eye Attack'. This is a gel like cream which I take on my ring finger and work from outer corner to inner corner and around my lid. This eliminates all under eye circles that may be there in the morning and also revitalises. 

Then I take the matching overnight cream, the 'Beauty Sleep Accelerator' which works amazingly at hydrating and moisturising your skin overnight, this product works best overnight because the constancy is thick and takes a while to work in and do its magic.

I'm in love with skincare routine and my skin has never felt better.

Thanks for reading.
