My Morning Skincare Routine

My skincare routine has changed so much the last few months! I used to just wash my face, use a face mask once a month or so, slap some moisturiser on and that was it! Now I have a full routine with some gorgeous products and I don't know why it took me so long to get into a proper routine. I exclusively use Body Shop products as they're cruelty free and many are vegan!


Cleansers

Once or twice a week I will use one of my face masks. Usually I use the Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask on a Sunday to get rid of the weekly build up of impurities, and then in the middle of the week I'll use the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. I always wash these off in the shower as I find it's a better way to exfoliate! Plus no water dripping onto the floor via my elbows...


On the days I don't use a face mask before a shower, I use the Aloe foaming face wash. I absolutely love this product, even though it's a foam it feels surprisingly silky! I have been using foam cleansers for a year or two now, but this is easily my favourite one so far.

For non-shower days I simply use my Vitamin E Cream Cleanser and a reusable scrubbie to clean my face in the morning.


The next few steps I do every single day, give or take!

Vitamin E Toner
Toner was a completely new product for me but it feels wrong if I ever skip it now! Toner refreshes the skin and removes any leftover traces of dirt and cleanser.


Drops of Youth Environmental Protection
This gel-like serum leaves my skin feeling fresher and has environmental protection and natural antioxidants to protect against pollution and impurities build up. Goes hand-in-hand with the Matcha Tea face mask!


Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate Rollerball
This is probably one of my favourite parts of my skincare routine. It doesn't matter how much sleep I get, my eyes are tired every single morning. Having a little massage with the rollerball every morning instantly gives my eyes a little hit of hydration and stops them feeling so tired.


Vitamin E Day Cream
This is easily my favourite face moisturiser ever. Gentle on my sensitive skin, light and leaves me feeling soft and hydrated all day long.


Followed by my lip juicer or lip butter to hydrate my lips! There's a fair few to choose from but I got the pomegranate, strawberry and aloe lip juicer. Smells so lovely and it gives a little bit of colour if I don't want to wear lipstick.


I also picked the coconut lip butter. Again, there's a fair few to choose from including some fruity ones but I love me some coconut! As all the body shop products do, it smells gorgeous and has been a lifesaver while I've had a cold!

My skin feels so much softer and healthier since using the Body Shop products, and I don't know where I'd be without them now!

Until next time,
