My Summer Skincare Routine
When washing my face I've been using Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash (£4.79) for many years and it's always kept my skin clear, soft and smell so good. To exfoliate I've been using Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Scrub (£4.79) which I've also been using for a while too, it's very gentle on my skin but still does the job well. When removing my makeup I've been using micellar water for a while and the Garnier Cleansing Water (£3.33 on offer at Boots) is by far the best, it removes waterproof mascara and tough liquid lipsticks, this is my third bottle of it it's that good! I've also started using a cleansing oil to see the difference and it does help to remove a lot of eye makeup and lipsticks if they are a struggle. The one I've been using is No7 Cleansing Oil (£11) and so far it's been good, I've heard about others so might try them out too, but at the moment I'm enjoying this one.
To begin with I've been using the Vitamin E Refreshing Toning Mist (£2.99) to spritz my face with before applying anything else. Then I've been going in with the Super Facialist Brighten Glow Boost Serum (£16.99) to soften the skin. After that's sunken in, I've been applying my moisturiser; this is one I've loved for many years, it's the Simple Moisture Cream (£3.33 on offer at Boots). Then going in with eye cream using The Body Shop Aloe Eye Defence which I've been using for a while and it's pretty good, it's nearly finished so I'll be buying something else to see if something else is better and cheaper. The lip balm I use is the Neutrogena Norwegian Lip Care (£2.89) it's very moisturising and keeps my lips hydrated and was really good on holiday as it has SPF 20.
The only mask I've been using is the L'oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask (£7.99) which has been really good for clearing my skin when it's had some blemishes or when my skin is feeling rubbish it brings everything out and makes my skin feel soft again. This is the only detox mask I've used and I really like, I definitely want to try out the other ones from the range.
