My Complete Skincare Essentials

Hello lovelies happy Sunday! Having had some very lovely comments on my skin lately, I thought I would share with you my complete skin care regime.This is everything I use morning and night without fail. I haven't had it easy with my skin in the past, so once I find something that works I stick to it religiously. I still try new products now and then but nothing has come close to my trusty skincare arsenal.

 Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser: This has been my number one cleanser for the last five years. This removes every trace of makeup, even mascara in one easy step. I contains naturally active ingredients like cocoa butter and eucalyptus, leaving skin scrupulously clean and soft. It is perfect for acne prone skin. I wish I had this when I was fourteen and struggling with the worst acne of my life!

 Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic: After cleansing I use this to close my pores and complete the cleansing process preparing my skin for treatments and moisturiser. This is alcohol free so great for sensitive skin. It has aloe vera and vitamin E to soothe and tone your skin. Its so refreshing and smells subtly of roses. I couldn't be without this.

bareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser: This is a gel cleanser that removes all traces of makeup leaving skin smooth and supple. It has no nasty ingredients. It contains rare mineral active soil complex which helps regenerate skin. I like to use this in the morning. Just one pump is all you will need, it doesn't dry out my skin and keeps it clear.

bareMinerals Multi-Wrinkle Repair: This is a serum which targets those pesky frown lines and keeps skin looking plump and youthful. I use this in the morning before my moisturiser and in the summer this replaces my moisturiser all together. It contains the revolutionary Active Soil Complex which is naturally derived. I love this this stuff and am on my third or fourth bottle. Serums penetrate skin on a much deeper level helping to repair damaged skin and protect future damage.

Rachel K CC Renew: (see full review here ) This is my all in one, my moisturiser, my sun protection, my anti-age and my primer. I love this stuff and I can't rave about it enough! This just melts into my skin, blurs out my pores and just leaves my skin flawless. This is great on its own as the coverage is medium to full or under foundation. Great for the gym or popping to the shops.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair: ( see full review here) I am totally obsessed with this serum I don't know why it took me so long to try it! oh yeah the price tag! This is a serum that completely transforms skin overnight. It repairs sun and environmental damage and continues to protect skin against future damage. It is amazing and you will notice the difference in your skin almost immediately. Go get you some!!

Decleor Harmonie Calm Eye Cream: The lightest gel eye cream I have found that doesn't cause those little white bumps. This smells divine as all Decleor products do, leaves my eye area hydrated and ready for my concealer. Its not sticky or too wet, it absorbs quickly into my skin and has a cooling sensation.

Ren Invisible Pores Detox Mask: This is my weekly mask that keeps my skin in check. It does exactly what it says on the bottle. I have humongous pores and this makes them disappear before my very eyes! I love it! It smells clean and fresh, it has no parabens or synthetic fragrance and leaves my skin clearer and smoother. You can purchase this at Space NK.

Tiana Coconut Oil: I use this all over my body, in my hair and for cooking. Its one of the most healthiest oil you can use especially when cooking as it maintains its nutrients even at high heat. It has so many health benefits its unreal. It is great for dry skin conditions, stretch marks, scars, removing makeup, hair conditioning, hands and feet and delicious in tea or coffee. You can even use it to replace butter in baking!

So there you have it my secret to amazing skin is out ;) check out my video below to see how excited these products make me.

  1. I have tried the Estee Lauder advanced night repair and unfortunately it didn't do anything for me but that might be my skin type as I am very dry already. Love your routine though! Been eyeing the Rachel K cc cream for a while and heard so much good bout Liz Earle...I am currently loving a mix of Obagi and Dermalogica products.

    1. Hey Jezz! Thank you for visiting my blog :) I used to use alot of Dermalogica I loved the gentle cream exfoliant. I have heard so much about Obagi and want to try the range for oily skin and the vitamin C serum. xxx
