My Skincare Routine August 2019

Today I am going to share with you my skincare which I have been using for a few months now.  I am not saying that it is never going to change because I can see this happening in the future. I have a lot of skincare which I want to use up because of course I always want the space back and I want to use it up before it goes bad. Plus it does mean that I am going to be able to purchase some new skincare which is always a bonus.

The cleanser which I use in the morning is the Garnier micellar gel. I have loved the micellar water ever since it came out. So when I wanted a new cleanser this is one which purchased I seem to remember this was on offer.  I find it gentle enough to use every single day I usually end up doing it in the shower.  This is because this is where I find it easiest for sure having a pump it means you get a good amount. For sure this is one which I would repurchase again when this runs out.

For a toner, I have been using it is the Lush Tea Tree toner water this is a product which I have had for a long time. I love this so much be sues of the spray I find it so easy compared to cotton wool. This is great for travel, of course you do not have to take as much with you.  The toner does help with spots which is something which I have been struggling with. I know this is my hormones and nothing else. Tea tree is something which I am going to go for with my next toner. I have been using this every single morning and night. I am unsure if this is my holy grail and Lush now is getting super expensive. For sure a toner is an essential part of my skincare routine again.

I also do need to get an exfoliant as part of my skincare routine. I used to use the Superdrug vitamin E one which is the one which I am thinking about repurchasing. Recently I have run out and just not had the time to go and get some more. I have found that this can make my skin look a lot better for sure this is something I need at the moment.  The Superdrug range is not too expensive which is always a bonus when you are on a budget like me. It also lasts a long time which is something which I look for in my skincare.

On the days I have been wearing makeup I have been using the Garnier Micellar Water, this is a product I have used for years.  For sure this works and manages to remove all of my makeup even some of my waterproof mascaras. This does last the longest time I think it claims 200 uses which is a year nearly for me. I do not wear makeup every single day. I know this is basically the same as water, however, it does make me feel a bit more special and means I do not always have to be near a tap to do my skincare.

On the evening I have been using the Lacura Glycolic Daily Cleansing Pads. These are a dupe of the Nip and Fab ones for a fraction of the price from Aldi. Truthfully I can not actually tell the difference between the two. If anything the Aldi ones may be a little bit smaller however, they still do the job. For sure I would repurchase these if I can get my hands on the again.  They are a fraction of the price and in my eyes, they are as good as the more expensive brand which is always good.

I have two products which I am using as a moisturiser the one which I am using at a night time is Superdrug vitamin E night cream. This is super thick however, it is something which I find absorbs into the skin in no time. I know this is super cheap and for me does actually do the job. I have noticed that I have been having less dry patches since I have been using this.  I will be repurchasing this very soon because I am really close to finishing this pot. There is also the day moisturiser which I think I will be purchasing when the one which I use during the day is finished.

The moisturiser which I have been using for the day is actually one from Lush. It is the imperious moisturiser.  I used to have complete skincare which was from Lush however, I can not justify the price point anymore. Am I the only one who has noticed how expensive Lush has now got now. Maybe this is because I now have more bills to pay. This moisturiser is a bit thinner which is something I look for when I am using a day moisturiser I know some people like thick ones. However, this is not the case for me if I am having to apply makeup on top.  You can use this for any skin type I know Joe had used it in the last and loved it as well.

These are the products which I have been using on my skin for the past few months.

What skincare products have you been using?
