Skincare Guide: 12 skincare products; My current skincare regime.

I’ve been trying different skincare regimes for a few years now and I have a few trusted products that never fail to disappoint me when it comes to dealing with my skincare needs. Therefore, in this particular post, I’ll take you through my daily routine and all of the products that work nicely for me and likewise some of you too.
I have spent alot on skincare products, due to articles i read in different magazines or heard about from friends etc. Some were supposed to be amazing products that bring quick and mind-blowing results. However, after using some of the products, I would notice absolutely no difference in the appearance of my skin.
I finally decided that when I found something that was right for me I would stick with it and this is the regime that works for me, consequently I thought I would share it with you.

Morning Skincare Routine

1 Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Exfoliating Pads

I use these everyday it gently exfoliates the face, unclogs pores & helps fight spot causing bacteria. For that reason, helps keep skin clear and healthy. I always buy this as part of Boots 3 for 2 deal, so savings all round. Available from Boots at £4.99 and also Buy 1 get 2nd 1/2 price on selected Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel.

2 Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Cleansing & Toning lotion

I love how clean and refreshed my skin feels after using this lotion, it contains antibacterial Tea Tree Oil and skin calming Witch Hazel to help keep your skin clear and healthy. As a result, it does not dry my skin at all. It is extremely effective at removing last traces of make-up and cleansing my skin at the same time, it is very refreshing and cooling, because of the tea tree in it.

6 Clinique City Block Sheer Daily Face Protector SPF 25.
Skincare Clinique
First of all, this lightweight formula helps wick away perspiration and absorb excess oil. Perfect alone or as an invisible makeup primer. I wear this as a primer before my foundation, but to be honest there are days when I forego the foundation and wear this alone. However, if i’m heading out for a night I do use Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance, also available from House of Fraser http://tidd.ly/20d1c027 £30, but I digress, thats for my later make-up post, back to Clinique City Block, it does give the skin a radiance and has SPF included, very important.

8 Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye wand.
Skincare Charlotte Tilbury
I just love this little “magic wand” as i like to call it. I use no:3 fair, however, there are other shades, so find one which suits your skin tone. They range from 1 fair to 5 medium. Consequently No:1 is very fair, in contrast, No:5 is fairly dark. One end of the wand is hydrating eye cream, while, the other end contains lights micro-particles that brighten shadows, conceal discolouration and diffuse the appearance of under-eye hollows. You will notice a difference, however, be careful with the amount of concealer, it comes out quickly.  Available at House of Fraser for an amazing £29.00

9 Seams Beauty Hand Cream.
Skincare Seams
I always feel that with skincare regimes we tend to forget about hands and feet, and yet they are the parts of the body even more used throughout the day and I love love love this hand cream. It was used backstage at ITV’s Dancing on Ice. This handcream, certainly absorbs quickly with no greasy residue. Furthermore, it helps mend, moisturise and soften dehydrated skin, reduce the appearance of age spots, strengthen nails, condition cuticles and protect hands all day long. It also smells gorgeous, to be honest, I also use this on my feet.
