My Updated Skincare Routine Summer 2017

As many followers will know, skincare is very important to me and ever since I was in my teens I have had a good skincare routine twice a day. Through blogging I have been introduced to lots of new skincare products and I am constantly trying new ones. I have written this post about the skincare routine that I use daily with the products that I feel are having the best impact on my skin.

Morning:

Step 1: Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Daily Wash

£4.79 from Boots

This really cleans my skins whilst unclogging my pores & mattifying my skin. I apply it in the shower in the morning. I wet my face and then work this into a lather in my palms before washing it over my face. It leaves my skin really refreshed and clean. I then use the Real Techniques Miracle Cleansing Sponge to gently exfoliate my skin. You can see a full review on this sponge here.

Step 2: LUSH Tea Tree Toner Water 

£8.50 from Lush

This really refreshes my skin and helps balance any oil without drying my skin. I spray it over my face and then use a cotton pad to wipe the toner around my face. You can read my full review here.

 

Step 3: Elemis Superfood Facial Oil

£37.00 from Amazon

This is a brightening oil that plumps my skin, feeds it lots of nutrients and makes my skin glow. I apply 2 drops to my fingers and then tap it into my face and neck, focusing on areas where I can see fine lines such as my forehead and around my eyes. You can read my full review here.

 

Step 4: Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream

£80.00 from Feelunique

I apply this to my fingers and then gently massage it into my face and neck. This is an anti-aging, hydrating cream that nourishes the skin and leaves it fresh and smooth. You can read my full review here. I really enjoy this cream, but it is expensive and I do not think I would splash out again for it. I was using Superdrug’s B. Skincare Day Cream before and I really liked it, so will go back to that when this is finished.

 

Step 5: Elemis Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment

£36.32 from Amazon

This is a refreshing eye cream that hydrates your skin, brightens tired eyes and fights against fine lines and wrinkles. I add half a pump onto my hand and then dab it gently around my eyes. You can read my full review here.

 

EVENING:

This is very similar;

Step 1: Garnier Micellar Water Combination Skin.

£2.66 from Tesco

I use this to remove my make-up and clean my face. I feel it really cleanses and mattes my skin. It cleans all traces of my makeup and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean.  You can read my full review here.

Step 2: LUSH Tea Tree Toner Water
Step 3: Elemis Superfood Facial Oil
Step 4: Superdrug’s B Skincare Night Cream

£11.99 from Superdrug

I apply this night cream instead of my Elemis Marine Cream as I felt my skin needed a bit more hydration. This is a lovely rich anti-aging moisturising night cream. It keeps my skin hydrated all night without leaving any oiliness in my T-Zone. I really like the whole of this skincare range from Superdrug. You can read my full review here.

Step 5: Elemis Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment
Twice a week:
Elemis Pro-Collgen Marine Mask

£49.50 from Feelunique

I apply this face mask for about 10-15 minutes twice a week. It leaves my skin feeling really fresh and soft. You can read my full review here.

 

St. Ives Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub

£4.19 for 150 ml from Boots

This is a lovely exfoliator that gently deep cleanses your skin whilst removing any oil and dead cells. I use this once a week as a deep cleanse. I follow with steps 2-5.

SENSSE Hot and Cool Ultrasonic Facial Bar

£59.99 from Amazon

I use the Sensse Hot and Cool Ultrasonic Facial Bar twice a week when applying my night cream. It gently tones my skin, reduces redness, eye bags, and helps to minimise wrinkles. It also brightens my complexion. You can see my full review of this product here.

 

I have found this skincare routine is really working for my skin. My skin is feeling hydrated and plump. It seems brighter and is glowing, making it look really healthy.
