Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog! Tonight, I’ve uploaded my usual week night skin care routine. You can find it here (don’t panic if you’re early – it’s coming!).
Here’s a slight break down of what I use in the week:
So first I use my Tropic Skincare cleanser with the bamboo cloth that comes with it. This sells for £16 – and I actually sell Tropic Skincare myself! This is an oil based cleanser that literally removes every piece of makeup, dirt and grime that’s on your face! I don’t need to tone when I use this cleanser – it’s one I use when I’m feeling lazy! The cloth cleans really well too – after using it, just run it under warm water, and it’s as good as new! You’ll see in the video!
Next, I exfoliate – I do use this one every night, although I don’t scrub my face with it as hard as I should because of this. This is the Clearskin range from Avon, and I think this exfoliator is £5.50! There’s always brilliant deals and offers on with it though. This has salicylic acid in, and leaves your face feeling minty fresh! I take a blob of this, lightly massage it over my face and then leave it on when I shower, washing it off just before I get out. I like to leave it get to work on my spots and uneven skin! This does calm down redness a lot too – you’ll notice a difference the morning after!
Then I do my spot treatment. I have been bouncing between these two treatments, so thought I’d include them both! The Clearasil treatment works wonders on spots under the skin – it helps calm them down, and takes away the pulsing feeling! The Boots witch hazel one I use if I have small spots, or little blemishes that aren’t really bothering me.
Lastly, on a week night, I’ll use my almond oil. I picked this up from Holland & Barrett, I think it’s £3.99 for this bottle. It lasts forever too, as you don’t need much! Almond oil is great for dry skin, dark circles under your eyes and acne! This is why I use it during the week! It does everything, to save using product after product. I massage it all over my face, and then wait at least 20 minutes before lying down in bed – otherwise it just wipes off onto your pillow. I alway wake up with really soft, calm skin whenever I use almond oil.
So that’s my week night routine! Sometimes I’ll shake it up with a different scrub, or on a weekend, I’ll chuck in a face mask. I also use my Lush Cosmetics cleanser on the weekend. I sometimes use it in the week too, but I find I have to tone my face too, just to make sure it has removed everything. I’ll do a weekend skincare routine soon, just to show y’all the difference! Until then though, let me know what your routine is!
