My Current Skincare Routine

My skin routine is something that I actually love, I love finding new products & having a love affair with some real classics that I forgot I even had. So I thought I'd share with you my current skincare routine. I like to use a mixture of both highstreet/drugstore & highend as we have some real hidden gems inside the highstreet & drugstore market.....and as for the highend market, it's nice seeing if it actually works and keeps to it's promises as well as seeing if is really worth the price tag that comes with it. Skincare (and makeup ;) ) is something I have a real passion for, It's something for everyone to love & enjoy using. Whether you just have 5 minutes or 30 it's always there and everybody needs 'me time' and skincare is such a HUGE part of my life not just in my job but also for me personally. I love knowing that my skin feels a lot better, healthier, brighter and well a whole lot more 'me' (if that makes sense). So here is my current skincare routine.

My Routine

Starting from the I use Estee Lauder's Take-It-Away Makeup Remover, Liz Earle Cleanse Polish in Limited Edition Rose & Cedrat, Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturiser, Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment & my Nuxe Lip Balm.

Remove & Cleanse

I firstly remove all my makeup with my Estee Lauder Take-It-Away Lotion & it's honestly UH-MA-ZING and really strips the days face away gently without leaving it feeling dry and gets even the toughest of makeup off including water proof.....It's one makeup remove that I completely adore and that I'm forever repurchasing, it's a waterbased formula but glides on like a gel-meets-lotion it's an absolute dream & breaks down each makeup layer. it's honestly fantastic and is worth every single penny. I also love how it doesn't leave an oily residue.

Once I've used my trusty Estee makeup remover, I now cleanse my skin using the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, raved by many include myself, I've used this for years & it's honestly such a good cleanser, it's light & creamy formula leaves your skin having an almost velvety finish it's just amazing, gives a thorough cleanse, smells divine, I have a limited edition one I'm using at the moment and I just can't get enough of this one, as well as the classic scent. It's enriched with cocoa butter & leaves a super soft & like I said earlier velvety feel to the skin. I use my Liz Earle cleanser in the spring/summer then switch to Emma Hardie in the autumn/winter.


I have never loved a moisturiser as much as this one, Clinique have really got it spot on when it comes to skincare they really know what works & what doesn't. I've raved about this since the start of this year and have been buying pot after pot since as it's that good, It's very hydrating and feels like the nicest thing ever to bless my skin, & has worked miracles on my dry patches. My skin tends to feel quite dehydrated with a little bit of oiliness & this has really popped it back into place & made it look much brighter, healthier and has really made a massive difference.

Eye Time

I bought this just about a month ago now and OMG it's fantastic it's really helped brighten my eyes and has helped with my dark circles, my eyes felt really dry & horrible after using a particular eye cream and this has completely transformed them, it's a really rich and creamy texture and just feels so luxurious and cooling to my eyes, I just love it. 


I bought this about two weeks ago, & have been using it ever since, it's a new obsession of mine. It's quite a thick lip balm, yet has an almost buttery texture it feels so luxurious and rich yet creamy. I apply this both at night and when I wake up it's STILL there.....it's honestly amazing and has changed my lips completely, they always looked & felt dry before using this particular lip balm & now they don't, It's also great to use before applying lipstick & has really stopped my lips from look scaly and less reptile like ;). You can feel it really sinking into your lips and feel it working wonders, I've got a feeling it will most definitely be making an appearance in my May Favourites.

And that my fellow blogger chums is everything I'm currently using skincare-wise, I'd love to know what products you use in your skincare, I'd also like to find some new hidden gems that I'm missing out on so do leave me some recommendations in the comments.
