I recently changed my skincare routine quite alot so thought i'd share it with you and let you know how i'm getting on with the changes.
I went along to a bloggers event at Kiehls which you can read about here and had a consultation. I found out that my skin is normal/ dry but i've been using the wrong products for my skin. I was recommended some products which i've since bought and been sent so I switched up my skincare quite alot.
First up cleansers, i'm still using and loving my Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. I'm using the Pink Pepper and Mint one which I absolutely love! If you head on over to the Liz Earle Website you can get a Limited Edition Hot Cloth Cleanser such as the Pink Pepper and Mint with a 100ml original hot cloth cleanser and 4 muslin cloths for £29 which is over £10 worth of savings, Hurry offer ends tonight at Midnight!!
I've been using the Kiehls Skin Brightening Exfoliater which i'm loving, it smells incredible and is a really nice gentle exfoliater. I have been using this about once a week to get rid of the dead skin and i'm really liking it so far. I've been using it for about a month now and think my face is softer and my make up looks better.
The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a really lovely fruity scent cleanser which is a non foaming gel. It's a nice grapefruit colour and really gentle on the skin. It improves the appearance of the skin by removing pores and dead skin cells. I really like it and find it leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean.
The Kiehls Centella Skin Calming Facial Cleanser* was recommeded at the Kiehls event, it's a lovely gentle cleanser which removes all make up and leaves the skin feeling soft and clean. It's suitable for sensitive skin which is great. I really like it because of it's calming qualitites as I sometimes have allergic reactions and this is great at calming the skin without drying it out. It contains both Aloe Vera and Chamomile to calm and soothe the skin and the Centella is a heeling element.
Next up my Moisturisers and Serums.
I've been using the Kiehls Ultra Facial cream* which I have had for a little while but never really used it. At the consultation at Kiehls I was actually recommended this for my skin type so i've been using this loads recently both morning and night. I sometimes switch it up with my Clarins Multi Active night cream* which I find works really well for me too and my skin always feels really hydrated when I use this.
I've been giving this Clarins Detox Booster* a try aswell which is designed for damaged skin, its good for skin that is damaged by smoke, nights out and pollution. I think it's a good idea and like the idea of repairing my skin from the pollution. I really want to give the Energy booster a try!
Last but not least my favourite product out of them all! I've tried samples of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate* by Kiehls before but they kindly sent me the full size to try and i'm so in love! It's such a lovely product. I use it every night before I go to bed after i've cleansed and it makes my skin feel full of moisture and hydrated which I love. It's such a gentle product and smells amazing. I use it every night and my skin feels so much better, really smooth and soft.
Overall my new regime is really working for me. My skin looks so much better, it's so smooth and seems really hydrated and I don't have flaky dry bits. It's still not perfect but i've been trying so hard to make sure i'm always removing my make up properly and trying to use the moisturiser every day and night. I love the Kiehls cleanser aswell this has quickly become a favourite, I use it all the time!
