Updated Morning Skincare Routine

After testing out a multitude of skincare products over the years from Garnier to Liz Earle I’ve always struggled to find products that help to keep my extremely sensitive skin balanced whilst taking care of spots and oiliness. Around a year ago I found the perfect skin care routine to suit my skin and have never strayed from it since!  My skin has never been so clear, moisturised and healthy.

Step 1: Kiehls Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser

Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser

This cleanser contains clay to help control oiliness and gentle exfoliants to leave my skin feeling soft and smooth. I’ve also noticed a huge reduction in blackheads and acne in general whilst using this face wash.

Step 2: Kiehls Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic

This is a brilliant toner for people who suffer from oily skin. It leaves my skin looking matte whilst still feeling moisturised and balanced.

Step 3: Kiehls Ultra Facial Oil Free Lotion

This facial lotion has honestly changed my whole outlook on moisturising your face. All of the other ones I’ve tried have left my skin both feeling and looking greasy. This lotion sinks in within seconds and leaves my skin looking matte yet healthy all day. It’s also a great base for makeup.

Step 4: Benefit’s It’s Potent! Eye cream

This is an amazing eye cream! It sinks in quickly and leaves my eye area feeling soft and soothed.

Step 5:  EOS Lip Balm

I always apply a lip balm before I put my makeup on to keep my lips soft.

Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray

As a girl with extremely fine, long hair I always struggle to keep volume at the roots. I’ve tried numerous products claiming to help hold my hair and stop it falling flat, but instead I was left with crispy looking, limp hair. I had honestly given up and was either just embracing the lack of volume – or just tying my hair up until I could get some of the length chopped off. Then I saw the advert for Dove’s oxygen moisture line on the TV and was intrigued – what difference does the oxygen make?

I decided to give it a go and bought a bottle when I was in Boots a few weeks ago and I couldn’t believe the results! I sprayed it all through my roots, massaged it in then brushed through my hair to disperse it. On this particular day I didn’t blow dry my hair and it still worked! I could see instantly that my hair just looked thicker and my roots looked lifted – and best of all my hair didn’t feel like I had put any products in it at all! Since then I’ve used it and blow dried my hair after – and the results are even better. It lasts until the next wash too which is great if you choose not to wash your hair everyday, as it stays lifted so your hair doesn’t look as flat or greasy.

For £6.99 I would definitely give it a go and see how it works for you!
