My Skincare Routine


Hi darlings♥️

I hope everyone is doing well during lockdown. I've finally finished my exams so I have all the time in the world until I go back to University in September so get ready to see a lot more content from me! :) 
Today i'm going to be talking about my skincare routine. As horrible as lockdown is, it is great to be giving our skin a good break from all of the polluted air and make up that we normally use daily. Additionally, it is the perfect time to get into a great skincare routine that you can stick to (trust me I know how difficult it is to stick to a routine when you're busy almost all day ever day). I've always been quite good with my skincare (most of the time) but for the past week or so i've stuck to a routine that i'm really happy with and I can definitely see results and improvements in my skin. Some of these products are quite expensive, but this is not essential of course, I just enjoy spending a little bit more money on my skincare products.


Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish

So first of all, I use the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish with a muslin cloth to cleanse my skin. I've used this product for about 3/4 years now mainly in the evening as it removes all my make up (even waterproof mascara!) but i've recently been using a tiny bit of it to gently cleanse my skin in the mornings. The texture of the muslin cloth also gently exfoliates my skin so I would definitely recommend getting one of those even if it's not with this cleanser.

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic 

Next up, it's the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic toner! This is very new to my routine as i've never used toner before so I can't give too much of a review on it (yet) but my mum actually gave this to me and i'm loving it! I really think it is having a great effect on my skin so i'm going to continue using it. I just use a few drops on a cotton pad but i'm really interested in using some reusable cotton pads - has anyone tried them? let me know! 

Clinique Moisture Surge
Next I use the Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturiser - I loovee this product! I've used many moisturisers in my lifetime but this one is for sure my favourite! It is a bit more expensive but it is definitely worth it! It is so luxurious and leaves my skin feeling to supple and plump, and it's great under make-up too.

Dior Lip Glow Colour Reviver Balm
Finally I use the Dior Lip Glow Colour Reviver Balm (one of my favourite beauty products during lockdown - see my previous post!) It is sooo luxurious and moisturising and brings out the natural colour of your lips (it also smells amazing hehe).


Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
So the first step of my night skincare routine is to cleanse! I use the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish again to remove both make up (if i'm wearing any) and then again to cleanse my skin. 

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic
Toner again! The same as above :)

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex
Now, eye creams are something i've been using probably since I was about 18, not only to prevent dryness but I also want to prevent any early wrinkles! This product is sooo luxurious and you only need a tiny bit of it so its definitely worth the money! It has definitely brightened up my eye area (great for dark circles as a university student hehe)

Elemis Pro-Collagen Super Serum
Next I sometimes use the Elemis Pro-Collagen Super Serum if I want to give my skin an extra boost, it makes my skin feel so soft and regenerated in the morning! Again, this is quite an expensive product but I prefer investing in this kind of stuff, especially when I start to see great results, and it lasts for a long time.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
My night time moisturiser is the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream - I LOVE this product so so much! You only need a little bit of it and it honestly makes your skin feel sooo smooth more than anything i've ever used before, it is definitely worth the money. I don't think i'll ever change my night cream from this one - i'll definitely be re-purchasing it when I run out! 

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream
The final step of my routine is using the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream to my lips for a lovely overnight treatment (I usually keep this on my bed-side table so I don't forget). Again, this is quite expensive so I only bought the 30ml version instead of the 50ml but honestly this has lasted me so long as theres still so much left of it as you only need the smallest amount for your lips to get an intense moisturising treatment, so I would definitely say it's worth the price! Give it a try and you will wake up with plump, soft and shiny lips!

Well that's everything! I hope you enjoyed reading my skincare routine! Please do let me know if you did and if you recommend any products i'd love to hear them as i'm always up for trying new products! Comment below your favourite skincare products & most importantly stay safe! :)

Lots of love, G xxx
