Updated Skincare Routine ♡

Skincare

It's been awhile since I've done a skincare routine and looking back on my old post (find here) some things have definitely changed as some things have been dropped and new things have been added!

I will admit also, I try to stick to this everyday and some days I will do it all but others after I've just got home from work I'm ready to fall into bed and so on them days I will use the Bioderma Micellar Water (Post on my thoughts coming soon) to remove my makeup and then just apply a moisturiser, but like I said I try not to do that everyday and stick to my actual routine!

The first thing I will use is the Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm to basically remove all of my makeup. I adore this product as while you're rubbing it into your skin you can basically see the makeup melting away. It takes literally no more than two minutes to remove a whole face of makeup with this product and I just love how clean and soft it leaves your skin feeling. You can find more of my thoughts on it here!

Next I'll move onto my trusty Garnier Micellar Water, even though I know the Cleansing Balm has removed all my makeup I like to still go over my face and neck with some of this on a cotton pad just to make sure I didn't miss anything. I've sang praises for this product pretty much in every skincare related post on Keep Dreaming so I'm sure by now you know my love for it. If you would like to read more about how much I love this product you can find it here.



I'll normally then exfoliate my face with the MyChelle Creamy Pumpkin Cleanser* yes I am still loving this product and I'm pretty sure I'm at the end of this bottle and so I will have to treat myself to a new one! This is so unbelievably gentle on the skin and does such an amazing job at cleansing, keeping any impurities away and exfoliating the skin all at once! The scent also reminds me of Halloween which is my favourite time of year. If you'd like to hear more of my thoughts about it you can here

Every Monday I use my PMD Personal Microderm* to help keep my skin looking bright and again it helps keep any impurities lurking under the skin away. You can only use this once a week as it breaks down your first layer of skin helping the new layer come through which helps give you a nice healthy glow! I have mega sensitive skin and this does not irritate it at all which I think is amazing! I have been using this for about 2 months now and I can definitely see a huge improvement in my skin and its also helping to keep away any spots that feel the need to pop up on my face. Definitely an amazing product and you can read all of my thoughts about it here!

Normally to finish up my routine I'll quickly swipe around my face with some Botanics Micellar Water not so much to remove any makeup because that's long gone but this contains brightening hibiscus which helps basically brighten your skin and leave it glowing. Surprisingly it does work and when you wake up in the morning your skin does have a glow to it which is so nice as mine tends to be quite dull especially in the colder months. Again you can read all about this product here.

Then to finish up I will apply my Botanics Night Cream which is my absolute favourite moisturiser as it's so thick and smells amazing and just feels really luxurious! I have been using this for months and months now and I swear this is like my 6th tub of it I just cannot replace it as it's too amazing! On top of that I just apply my Botanics Hydrating Eye Cream because ain't nobody got time for bags unless they're chanel! Again this product is something I adore and it's nice and cooling when applied around the eyes, I suffer with really bad hayfever and my eyes can feel quite tight and dry so this definitely helps soothe the skin around them it also smells amazing like the rest of the range!

Finally facemasks! Now I wont apply one of these every night just because well I want to go to sleep normally or I feel my skin feels quite nice and moisturised so I'll leave it! However I definitely apply a facemask at least four times a week because nothing wrong with a little pampering! My current go to one at the moment is the MyChelle Hydrating Cactus Mask*. This is perfect for dry or sensitive skin as it soothes the skin so much and also helps strengthen and repair the skin. I adore this mask as it leaves your skin feeling amazing and it feels very soothing. I have been using this for when I want a really good facemask that I know is actually helping my skin. You can find more of my thoughts on this product here

Sometimes I'm lazy and want to apply a facemask but don't want the hassle of the messy application and then having to remove it and so when that happens I tend to use some sheet facemasks! Ones I'm loving at the moment are the Nature Republic Sheet Masks*. These leave your skin feeling so moisturised and hydrated and because they're a sheet mask they leave no mess and I really enjoy using them!

Now I'm off to apply all of this to my face and hopefully this will be a little reminder to you not to forget to also do your skincare routine today and start the week off with treating your skin right!

What products do you use in your skincare routine?
