Antipodes Manuka Honey Face Mask

Third-time re-purchasing this face mask, it helps with hydration and fighting blemishes

Milani Lip Scrub

I have heard good things about this scrub and my lips are really dry during the winter.

BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Eyeshadow and Highlight Palette

I really like the shade collection, and it seems perfect for travelling.

Morphe Brittney Bear Nose Contour Brush Set

I want to start contouring my nose so I thought this brush set would be perfect.

Skin79 Green Tea Clay Mask

A purifying face mask for oily skin. Drawing out impurities, Green Tea Clay Mask promotes a clear, blemish-free complexion. With small exfoliating beads, dead skin cells are gently removed, oil levels are controlled and pores are protected with natural antioxidants.

I decided not buy the glam glow super mud mask anymore as it is expensive.

Morphe R36 Highlight Brush 

I really like this brush so I bought another one.

Updated Night Time Skincare Routine 

1. I always cleanse my skin with my Clarisonic Mia 2 brush if I’m not wearing makeup. I am currently using the Neutrogena visibly clear pore and shine daily wash.

If I do wear makeup I use the Pixi + Caroline Hirons double cleanse solid cleansing oil and cleansing cream. This really gets rid of the makeup and cleans my skin. I also use the nip and fab night cleansing pads.

2. I try to do a face mask on the weekdays. My favourite masks are the L’Óreal Blemish Rescue Face Mask, glamglow super mud mask, antipodes Manuka honey mask and the ordinary AHA 30% +BHA 2% Peeling Solution.

3. I then tone my face with the ordinary glycolic acid 7% toning solution.

4. For serums, I use the ordinary niacinamide 10% + zinc 1% I use this to help with my acne and oil control. Hyaluronic acid, for hydration. Lactic acid for my texture. I then use the nurse Jamie uplift facial massaging beauty roller to massage everything into my skin.

5. For moisturiser, I use the soap + glory speed plump overnight moisture mousse. For my under eyes puffy eye attack turbo boost hydragel.

6. For blemishes, I use the ordinary salicylic solution or the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion.

Skincare Must Haves 

In the morning-

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore + Shine Wash Cleanser, I use this day and night. I only this in the night if I have not worn makeup all day. This has just been introduced into my routine.

Garnier Pure Active Intensive Blackhead Face Scrub. I use this daily as it is recommended. This helps with blackheads and reducing hyperpigmentation.

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% and Zinc 1% -this potent serum targets breakouts, minimises pores and decongests confused complexions by regulating sebum production. Featuring high concentrations of two of the most efficacious blemish-battling ingredients out there (niacinamide and zinc), this swiftly soothes skin and improves its overall health.

I use this in the morning and at night. I also don’t wear it under makeup as it makes my foundation look dry.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturiser-  I use this in the morning and I apply this all to my face and neck. This moisturiser is great for my skin type combination and the gel does not clog my pores.

Benefit SPF 45 Cream- I always wear SPF, as some of the products I wear recommend it.

In the evening-

I use face masks- Have a look at my blog post on my favourite face masks.

If I wear makeup, I use the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Solid Cleansing Oil + Cleansing Cream. This is a double cleanse that really removes my makeup. I also use the face halo which also helps in removing makeup and it helps remove makeup from my pores.

Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, I use this to tone my skin. Featuring glycolic acid (an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin) this toning solution offers mild exfoliation to boost radiance and visibly restore clarity. Also enhanced with a Tasmanian pepperberry derivative to help reduce the irritation associated with acid use and ginseng and aloe vera to soothe, this is the ideal way to gently refine the texture of your skin. I only use this in the evening.

The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion- helps with even skin tone and I use 2-3 drops.

THE ORDINARY Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%- helps with texture, use 2-3 drops.

Soap & Glory Speed Plump Overnight Moisture Mousse- This helps with keeping my skin really moisturised overnight.

Soap & Glory Eye Cream- just to keep my undereye moisturised.

For my spots, I either use my Mario Badescu drying lotion, CosRX pimple patch or the ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution.

NURSE JAMIE UpLift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller- I use this on my face to really push in the product.

The Importance of SPF

Since I have been using The Ordinary Skincare Range, I have been advised to always wear SPF.

How important is SPF?-

  1. Skin cancer rates are on the rise and sunscreen has been proven to decrease the development of skin cancer
  2. It helps to prevent facial brown spots and skin discolourations
  3. It also helps to reduce the appearance of facial red veins and blotchiness
  4. It slows down the development of wrinkles, prematurely ageing skin

How SPF has helped my skin-

  1. Reduced my discolouration
  2. Protects my skin from sun rays

Product I like-

Benefit SPF- Feelunique

Facial at Home

1. Cleanse

Before doing any face mask, always cleanse your skin. This will get rid of the dirt, oil and any makeup. I would recommend doing a double cleanse to really make sure that everything is gone. I would recommend the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse Solid Cleansing Oil + Cleansing Cream. When cleansing I massage my face with my knuckles, this stimulates the blood flow in my face.

2. Exfoliate

After cleansing, exfoliate to rid if the dead skin cells on your face. I use the Garnier skin naturals pure active intensive anti-spot exfoliating scrub.

3. Steam

I then steam my face using my facial steamer that I purchased from Amazon. Or you could boil water in your kettle and put in a bowl. Steam opens up your pores.

4. Extractions

I would recommend leaving the extractions to professional facialists. But you could do a nose pore strip.

5. Face Mask

Depending on how my skin is I will use these face masks and leave it on for 10-15 min.

Dry skin- Antipodes Manuka Honey Face Mask

Congested Skin- GlamGlow Super-Mud Face Mask or the L’Oreal Detox Face Mask

Blemishes- L’Oreal Blemish Rescue Face Mask

6. Tone

A good toner will remove any remaining bits of oil, dirt and debris left behind by the cleanser. More importantly, the toner will help soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin while restoring its delicate pH balance. It can also close some of your pores from the steam.

7. Eye Cream

This will moisturise your under eyes and help brighten your under eyes.

8. Serum

Use a serum for your skin needs. I use the ordinary granactive retnoid 2% and the ordinary niacinamide 10% and zinc 1%.

9. Moisturise

It’s important to moisturise as it gives your skin hydration.

I use the L’Óreal Hydra Genius and this is a gel moisturiser and it doesn’t clog my pores.
