My Current Skincare Routine!

Hello everyone } Follow my Bloglovin! 

So a couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had just recently been sorting out my skincare routine. I had noticed that my skin has become fairly oily and I decided that changing my skincare routine could help reduce the oiliness of my skin. 

I decided that I would share with you my current skincare routine that I have sorted carefully. This skincare routine has honestly helped my skin so much my skin is no where near as oily as it once was and I don't have spots appearing as often as I previously did. 

The one thing I love about my skincare routine is that all the products used are inexpensive yet effective and don't break the bank whenever I need to re purchase them. In my routine I have tried to keep it as simple but effective as possible as I am not the sort of the person that wants to spend 20 minutes doing a skincare routine. 

Products I use in order of use:

- Garnier Micellar Water
- Cotton Pads
- Garnier Refining Toner
- Boots Exfoliating Pads 
- Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It Pore Scrub
- Garnier Pure Active Moisturizer
- Garnier Pure Spot Pen
- Superdrug Aloe Vera Lip Balm 

The routine that I am about to explain I use day and night and takes under 10 minutes and leaves my skin clean.

Firstly - I use my Garnier Micellar Water to help remove any dirt of my skin. I take a cotton pad
and pour a small amount of the micellar water onto the pad and then move the cotton pad around my face. I use this to remove my makeup at night and to make sure all the dirt is off my skin in the morning. Doing this helps to keep my skin clear and dirt free.

Secondly - I use my Garnier Refining Toner to help tightens my pores and help purify my skin. After using the micellar water I pour a little bit of the toner onto a new cotton pad and work this around my face and let it sink in. This helps purify my skin and make it soft and smooth. 

Then I grab my Boots Exfoliating Pads which are a product I have been trying out recently, so don't worry there will be a review soon! I take one of the pads and work it around one side of my face and then I use another for the other side. Using these pads helps to reduce any spots I have as well as removing any dirt or bacteria off of my skin. 

After I have used the exfoliating pads I use my Soap & Glory pore scrub now I only use this scrub once a week as it can be a bit too tough on my skin to use daily. So when I do use this I damp my t-zone and apply a very small amount onto my hand and then work it onto my t-zone I then let it stay there for about 2 minutes so that it can work in and then rinse all the scrub off. 

The next step which is an essential step is to moisturize. I pick up my Garnier Pure Spot Moisturizer which is a moisturizer I have just recently started to try and I work this into my face and allow it to sink into my skin. This moisturizer is meant to help reduce of any spots you have on your skin and I have noticed that it is starting to help my skin so I will review it soon. 

The next step isn't necessary for everyone but this is what I do for my spots. As I have a few spots I try to reduce them as much as possible and help them go away quicker to do this I use my Garnier Pure Spot Pen on any of the spots I have. I apply a small amount onto the spot and let it work on the spot. After doing this I like to apply a lip balm onto my lips this is just to make sure my lips stay moisturized and don't get chapped. The lip balm that I have been using recently is the Superdrug Little Green Tin Aloe Vera Lip Balm.

Then after that my skincare routine is complete and my skin is clean and ready for anything then.

This has been my current skincare routine that I have carefully picked out to benefit my skin. I hope people find this useful. On Wednesday I will be reviewing a new wonder product for nail varnish remover so don't forget to check that out and next Friday I will be writing about a few disappointing products I have tried and sadly not loved so don't forget to check that as well next week. 

Thanks for reading!
