#2014BloggerChallenge Skincare

My morning routine is all about waking my skin and preparing it for makeup application. I think it's really important to care for your skin and prepare it well for makeup application as this will allow you to have the most flawless makeup base possible. Skincare really is the best place to start if you want flawless looking makeup. My skin is dry in places but can also get quite oily, I do have very sensitive skin so some products don’t work for me and cause me to break out so my routine is based a lot around that.

 I start of by using my Clean and Clear exfoliating daily wash. To give a light exfoliation to my skin. This is my all time favourite scrub. It smells so lovely and refreshing so it's great for waking your skin up! It's really gentle, doing the job well but without feeling overly abrasive or scratchy. I wet my face prior to using it and massage it in to my skin for 2-3 minutes. I then remove it using a flannel.

I then tone my skin with my Clean and Clear deep cleansing lotion  using a cotton wool pad. This just helps to tighten my pores and finish the cleansing process. It really gentle and great for sensitive skin. It also lasts such a long time! I've had it since the beginning of June and only just hit half way after using it morning and night!

Next I use my Beauty formulas on the spot treatment which I absolutely love! I never miss this step its one that I do whatever! The ingredients it has helps clear spots and keeps your skin healthy and clear, it also exfoliates  and removes dead skin cells. It has a gel like consistency and smells of peppermint which leaves my skin feeling cool and refreshed.

Lastly I moisturize, the one I use the most is the Body Shop white musk smooth satin body lotion which I really like. Although It is designed for your body it is the only moisturiser I have found to be really effective and keep my skin hydrated It isn't greasy or heavy and soaks in really quickly providing a great makeup base.

Do you have a similar morning routine? What products do you use?


  1. Great post - I am so lazy I always use a face wipe in the mornings, but I use Clarins in the evening. The exfoliator sounds brilliant, I'll definitely give it a try!

  2. I'm so terrible in the mornings too! Seeing as a shower at night, I just quickly wipe a bit of toner around my face on a cotton wool pad, ekk!
