My Current Skin Care Routine



Everyone seems to be doing one of these posts at the minute, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and join in. I like reading other people's skin care routines just in case I pick up any tips or discover any new products that would work for me too. I tend not to use too many products because my skin is quite sensitive and I hate having breakouts. I currently have one from the silly Glamoxy Snake Serum I tested last week, which is annoying. I tend to stick to things that I know work well for my skin, although now I've started to try new things when I get sent samples.

These five things are part of my daily routine, although there are a few things I've missed but I'll talk about those later. Oxy is something that I discovered a while ago now and I've been using ever since because its worked so well for my skin. When I first found Oxy it was branded for male skin, but I decided to give it a go anyway and i'm so glad I did. Their range is amazing and it helps clear my skin in a few days when I use the products twice a day. Oxy products contain Seaweed, which is full of vitamins and minerals, and helps to prevent breakouts. They've recently re-designed their packaging and I think they're becoming a lot more popular. I use their face wipes, blitz pads, fresh skin wash and the occasional gel when I have really bad skin.

The Clean Start toner and Vichy Day Cream are both samples that I've really taken to and carried on using after the little trial period that I give them. The toner came as part of a pack that I reviewed here, and the day cream was part of the September Glossy Box that I reviewed here. The toner is really citrusy and makes my skin feel so fresh, especially in a morning. The day cream is quick thick, but you really don't need a lot to make your skin feel really moisturised and healthy. They've both improved my skin overall and I'm going to be a bit stuck when they run out... maybe I should start looking for substitutes. Any ideas?

The last product that I decided to pop in this post is my Nivea Daily Essentials Tinted Moisturiser. I used this last year while I was away on holiday and it worked amazingly as a foundation, so I decided to try it out on my two holidays this year. In fact I liked it that much, I've now incorporated it into my everyday routine. It works so well as a moisturiser but it also adds a bit of base colour to my skin, almost like tinted primer. I apply it like a normal moisturiser then add my make-up on top and I swear, it really changes my whole face and makes my make-up last a lot longer.

There's a few other things I've missed from this photograph, such as Sudocrem and PanOxyl, but to be honest they're not something that I use everyday. I use the PanOxyl 10% Acne Cream when I have breakouts, but because of its design it really dries out my skin so I have to moisturise loads. Sudocrem is probably my favourite thing to use when I have breakouts because it seems to make them disappear overnight.

What are your favourite products?

  7. Thanks so much for sharing these products! I am wondering about the products that were proscribed by your AZ dermatologist. You said they have done wonders for your skin and I would like to try them, so I'm just wondering if it would be easy to get a prescription or if it was like a special circumstance? Thanks again for sharing this info!

    1. Do you mean the cream I was prescribed from my doctor? I talk about the cream here http://littlegoldstars.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/bye-bye-breakouts.html if you want to check it out? :) For that one I actually bought it online but I'd been prescribed it before and knew it worked well for my skin. That's fine lovely I hope it helped :)
