I can now 100% say that I am happy with my skincare routine! I've mentioned before that I have normal/sensitive (sometimes)/ dry (sometimes) so it's difficult trying to pin down what products to use to cater to everything, major pain, however I think I've now got it under control. 

The Cleansing Oil is just fantastic. It takes absolutely everything off my face within a minute or so and when I say it takes everything off, I mean everything. It leaves my face feeling really hydrated after using it as well which is a massive plus! I must warn you though, it will not take off the Bourjois Rouge Edtion Velvets, but to be honest, what does take them off?!

The Daily Microfoliant is pricey, but completely worth every single penny, it's lasted me almost two years! It smells weird but it is really gentle, so you can use it every single day without it taking half your skin off. I'm pretty sure that the more I use it, the softer my skin gets. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone!

Moving on to moisturisers, the Overnight Serum-In-Oil has definitely earned its rightful place on my bedside table, it would be under my pillow but it's made of glass... that's just how much I treasure it. I use about 3-4 drops in the palm of my hand and it works perfectly at moisturising my face and neck and keeps it that way until I wake up in the morning and sometimes even after that. It leaves my skin feeling plump and alive! I would also recommend this product to everyone too!

I've been really enjoying BB creams lately, something I thought I'd never say. These two work together really nicely to achieve the perfect amount of sheer coverage and colour that I need for my base. There's nothing worse in the Summer than wearing a heavy layer of foundation that is only going to continue slipping down your face as the day goes on. Add a bit of powder and bingo, I've got my lightweight base that is perfect for enduring the heat!

I also did a video where I talk you through more in depth about my skincare routine if you'd like to check it out!


So there we have my skincare routine! Pretty simple but really effective! 

Let me know in the comments what your holy grail skincare bits are!

  1. The overnight serum-in-oil is so good! I tried it recently and loved it. :) I love the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream as well haha, mine is coming to the end of its days but has definitely served me well.
