Beauty Tip Tuesday: Updated Skincare Routine

14 August 2013

Sorry this is a day late, I had actually written this yesterday but forgot to post!  

Today I filmed a video on my updated skincare routine.  Since finding out I'm pregnant, I cut out any harsh products with either salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide and instead have taken a more natural route.  These products are not all natural/organic but they are certainly a lot gentler on my skin.  I am experiencing some hormonal acne (which there's not much I can do about unfortunately!) but otherwise my skin has been good...especially in my T-zone area which was always the most prone to breakouts.  Here are the products I'm currently using:

L'Occitane Angelica Cleansing Gel
I use this morning & night - about two to three pumps is enough!

 L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream
I also use this morning & evening.  I love the smell of this line and both products leave my skin feeling soft & clean.

Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator
I've been using this before my moisturiser in the mornings, to prime my face.  It makes my pores look smaller & my skin feel a lot smoother before I apply my makeup.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
I've started using this at night after hearing so many rave reviews about it.  I don't think I've been using it long enough to see any real difference yet but I like how it makes my skin feel after so I'll continue using it for now!

The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover
Prior to this I had been using makeup removing wipes which aren't that good for your skin.  Now I use this to take off my eye makeup with cotton pads & it is a lot gentler!

The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
I love this stuff - I slather it all over my face every night to take off my face makeup.  It leaves my skin feeling super soft & hydrated, not greasy or oily at all.  It also smells lovely...a very luxurious product!

Have you tried any of these products and if so, what do you think of them?  Do you have any skincare tips & tricks you'd like to share?  Leave them in the comments below!
