My Current Skincare Routine.

I have recently been really into my skincare so I thought I would do a post on it. I have pretty normal to dry skin with very few breakouts, I do however suffer from blocked pores. Ever since I have been doing this routine I have far fewer clogged pores and virtually no blackheads. It’s pretty time consuming but I love doing it as I find it relaxing after a hard day’s work.

Morning Step 1: I am always in a rush in the morning so I will just quickly freshen my face with a Simple wipe.

Morning Step 2: I apply a good layer of Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream. I find this is excellent under foundation, it keeps my skin looking radiant all day.

Morning Step 3: Makeup!

Evening Step 1: I use the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser and the muslin cloth that it comes with. I LOVE this cleanser. It gets rid of any flaky skin and cleanses deeply into pores. I love the creamy consistency and it smells really indulgent.

Evening Step 2: I use the Body Shop Aloe Toner to make sure that any trace of cleanser is removed and to get my skin ready for moisture. This toner isn’t drying at all because it doesn’t contain any alcohol, it never irritates my skin.

Evening Step 3: A thin layer of Superdrug Optimum Swiss Apple Serum. I find this makes my skin appear fresher and more radiant in the mornings. It feels really nurturing and smells lovely and fresh. This is a must for me in the winter because I get extremely dry patches, this keeps them at bay.

Evening Step 4: Superdrug Natural High Eye Cream. I have no other reason to use this other than I like it. It does keep my eyes feel comfortable and moisturised, plus I have noticed an improvement in my dark circles.

Evening Step 5: I use my Oilatum again. I will never use anything else I don’t think. Even better than my Embryolisse and Clinique Dramatically Different face creams.

That’s pretty much my daily skin care routine. I also use a facial peel by Soap & Glory once a week for a deeper exfoliation. The Fab Pore Facial Peel. This contains Salicylic acid which allows the dead skin cells to properly detach and reveal brighter fresher looking skin.


  1. Young women prefer to have skin care products in their pouches or bags. That way, they will always have a means with them to protect their skin from dirt, direct sunlight, and other harsh elements that might harm the skin. Furthermore, most of these contain vitamins, which are considered food for the skin.

  3. I really want that Oilatum Natural Repair! <3

  4. My skin care routine looks kind of similar to yours...I also use the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser which is excellent for skin slightly on the dry side. Another amazing Superdrug product is their Optimum Swiss Apple Serum. If you get it half price good value for money and I feel like it really ads radiance to my skin.

    Good picks! I might give Oilatum a try soon.
