My Skincare Routine

Hello lovelies!
               For ages and ages I searched for skincare that's right for my face as my face went from being oily and spotty to extremely dry and flaky (ewww I know). Eventually my mum introduced me to Clinique and ever since I started using Clinique it's really improved my skin.

I've been using the Clinique 3 Step skincare routine for a good few months now and it's worked wonders for me. Yes Clinique is a pricey brand but its well worth what you pay for as the products are very good quality. Also I do this routine in the morning and in the evening.

Step 1

The first thing I do is wash my face using the Clinique cleansing soap. This is a very mild soap which has no perfumes or irritants in it. Also  this is very gentle on the skin and when applied it builds up a mild lather.  In the evening I use warm water to wash it off and in the morning I use cold water. When washed off it leaves my skin feeling soft and feeling clean at the same time.

Step 2

After washing my face I use the toner. I must warn you I found it quite strong at first and it took a few days to get used to. However it leaves your skin feeling very refreshed. To apply the toner I put a small bit on a cotton pad and then sweep it across my face (be very careful around the eye area!)

Step 3

The final step is to moisturize. This is perfect as it's very light so it doesn't leave your skin feeling sticky and oily. At the same time its also moisturizing enough to leave your skin feeling super soft as it sinks in very quickly.

To take my make up off I use the cleansing milk. I apply to my face, leave for a couple of minutes and then wash off. What I like about this product is that it doesn't dry out your skin but moisturizes it and its perfect for dry skin. The only thing I would say is although its safe to use on the eyes ( I did ask), be careful when applying to eyes and washing it off because if you get it in your eyes it will sting like crazy.

Well that's my skincare routine, whats yours?
