I wanted to share with you my skin care routine…to be honest its pretty basic but these are tried and tested products that I love on my face. My skin is oily combination and I am still prone to a few spots!! This drives me mad at my age when they should be a thing of the past but oily skin does stay more youthful looking I’ve been told, so I’m working on that reasoning.
I bought a Magnitone Barefaced Vibra-sonic Daily Cleansing from The Hut in the UK. Managed to get it for £50 when they are normally £70 and came with a free shower holder. | have to say its a great little brush. Its a really good size to hold in your hand, it easy to charge and the battery lasts forever…I’ve only ever charged it once. Another thing is its completely waterproof which they are not all like that in this price bracket.
I start at night by using the Garnier Micellar Water with cotton wool which is also super at removing makeup including eye makeup. Gentle for sensitive skin, dry skin…for the price its brilliant. Then I go in with the Michael Todd Oat and Honey Gentle Daily Cleanser, using a couple of pumps on my brush. The brilliance of these face brushes is that you cant overcleanse as they have little buzzers that go off after a few seconds. so you get one side of your face done, BUZZ, then the other side, BUZZ, then forehead, BUZZ off. 😉
The ethos behind Michael Todd is rather fab as its natural skin care without cheap water fillers, parabens, sulfates, artificial colours or synthetic fragrances. It doesn’t pretend to be something fancy other than it is. It leaves my skin refreshed and shifts the dirt out my pores that the Micellar Water misses. I follow twice a week with the JoJoba Charcoal Facial Scrub which again is really gentle. And then to moisturise. Everyone has their own favourites but I stumbled accross Embryolisse just over a year ago and it is perfect for me. It can be found in the UK on Beauty Bay which is where I purchase it. I have dry patches at times due to Winter, central-heating or another cream im using. I also have oily skin and spots occasionally. But however my skin is it dosent matter. it leaves no oily residue on my face, its like a perfect PH balance, no dryness, just smooth hydrating skin. Its won lots of awards and if you are looking for a new one its definatley in the affordable bracket as it lasts so long. Give it a try!
Thanks for reading. Love Em x
