The Streamlined Skincare Routine

I love me some skincare - it was becoming a full blown obsession but I was coming to the point where I had so many products that I wasn't using them all and they were collecting dust on a shelf in my room.

With the weather changing, my skin has also changed and with a newfound love for going to the gym, it's thrown another spanner in the works. Whilst I will always love the Una Brennan The Facialist Cleansing Oil for removing my makeup, I've not been wearing much makeup lately so have been loving Soap&Glory's Peaches and Clean Deep Cleansing Milk which is honestly amazing. It's incredibly gentle and leaves my skin soft but not stripped. It does take off basic makeup but for heavy duty stuff, go for an oil. It's perfect for a second cleanse as well. 

But for oily days, I'm head over heels for the Ren Clear Calm 3 Clay Cleanser which is so good for cleansing but once again, doesn't strip the skin. I've been using this for ages and it's ideal for days where I might have a breakout or redness.

And finally mask wise, Origins Original Skin Retexturising Mask is my go to. It helps breakouts, softens skin and gives you a wonderful glow. It's not drying (which is amazing as it's a clay mask), and it has tiny beads in it that exfoliate gently as you remove the mask.  

Of course, I still do use other products occasionally but this is definitely my go to skincare routine at the moment. What are some of your favourites?
