My Skincare Routine

I think it's finally time for me to write this post. I have been waiting a while because I've been using a lot of samples lately, now things are starting to go back to normal. I like to think that my skincare routine is relatively simple, but after looking at all these pictures, maybe it isn't as simple as I first thought!

Clearasil Vitamins & Extracts Scrub
Nivea Pure & Natural Soothing Day Cream

Keeping it simple because I can't be bothered with anything complex in the morning. I've been using the Clearasil Vitamins & Extracts Scrub* for a while (read my review here) and it's really great! Helps to wake me up I think. The Nivea Soothing Day Cream* is also nice. 

Uriage Lit Demaquillant Makeup Remover Milk
Aphelia Cleansing Beauty Oil

Makeup Removal
If I am wearing Revlon Colorstay (that stuff is super duper long lasting), then I use the Aphelia Cleansing Oil (received from a blog giveaway). It removes makeup really well and doesn't dry out my face. It smells really lovely too. When I'm wearing anything other than Revlon Colorstay, I use the Uriage Makeup Remover Milk*. I received this product through Beautorium. It's a lotion based makeup remover that gentle sweeps over skin to pick up traces of makeup. Probably not as effective as the Aphelia, hence the reason I reserve the Aphelia for tougher stuff. 

Clearasil Vitamin & Extracts Daily Wash
Sukin Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil
BioElixia Night Renew Complex

The Clearasil wash (also from a blog giveaway!) is clay based and is really effective. I'm starting to run low as you can see, and this is my second bottle of it! I recently reviewed and raved about the Sukin RHO, so I won't say too much, but it has become a night time staple. And the BioElixia Night Cream follows...it's an interesting product, with all these bold claims...I do like it but the marketing tactics are annoying. This is probably the most expensive skincare product I've ever used - it has a RRP of around $80! No, I didn't buy it, but my bf received a package of BioElixia products through his work and obviously he has no interest in this stuff so he passed it onto me. Yay!

St. Ives Apricot Scrub
Nivea Pure & Natural Cleansing Toner
Sukin Purifying Facial Masque

I use the scrub when I wash my hair - about twice a week. Obviously not to wash my hair, it's just a way that I remember to use it! This product has a bit of nostalgia behind it. I remember when I was younger and I used to steal this from my mums shower to use it...so naturally, when I was old enough to start buying my own products, I had to pick it up. This scrub is awesome and is really great to use. 

The Nivea Pure and Natural Toner* is in the occasional category because I am lazy and don't see the real purpose in using a toner daily. Don't judge me!

And the Sukin Purifying Masque is something I use about once a week. I reviewed it late last year, so again, I won't say too much but feel free to read my review!

And that's what I use on my face. Do you use any of these products?

    1. The Nivea Pure & Naturals range is pretty awesome :) and I totally agree with you about the Clearasil washes, I look forward to a bit of fruity smelling goodness in the morning!

  5. The bioelixia looks interesting, and quite a score via your bf!

    1. I know, I was pretty stoked! Ironic that a few days after I post this, I end up getting bitten on my face and it has started to peel and scab...so I have a hole in my face :(
