My Skincare Routine

Hey Everyone!

I really wanted to do a skincare routine post but up until now I have never really found a skincare routine that  totally works for me. Usually I find a product I absolutely love but then it ends up making my skin break out or go oily after a while.

I have oily/combination skin that is very prone to breakouts which really sucks! However I think I have finally found the perfect skincare routine for me and I have tested this for about a month now and I have seen a huge improvement in the condition of my skin, and it has really helped to clear up my skin and I am getting way less/no breakouts now. 

So here are the products I use:

Simple Kind to Skin Night Cream

Simple Kind to Skin Day Cream

LUSH Eau Roma Water

LUSH Buche De Noel Cleanser

Soap & Glory Fab Pore Facial Peel

I also use Bioderma which is in the first photo decanted into the perfume bottle.

  • I wash my face with the Buche De Noel cleanser, this is a kind of clay cleanser, you take a pinch of the cleanser, mix it with warm water in your hands and make a paste out of it. Massage it into your face and then wash off with warm water.
  • Then I spray my Lush Eau De Roma toning water evenly over my face and wait for it to sink into my skin and dry, you could put this on a cotton pad but personally I don't do this.
  • Then I apply my Simple Day Cream.
  • I take off my makeup with a large oval cotton pad and Bioderma.
  • Then I wash my face again with the Buche De Noel cleanser.
  • I then spray my Lush toning water over my face again.
  • Then I apply my Simple Night Cream.
On a Monday, Wednesday & Friday night instead of washing my face with the LUSH cleanser I apply Soap & Glory's Fab Facial Pore Peel. You could do both steps but I find this overly dries my skin.

If you would like any individual reviews of these products please leave me a comment!

What is your skincare routine? I'd love to hear about it in the comments!



  1. I need to try and get into the habit of taking better care of my skin. I only really moisturise in the morning. Before putting on my makeup and cleanse to take it off. I wonder why I have such dry skin when I don't do anything to help it!!

    1. Hahah that's what I use to be like but I have finally managed to get myself into a better routine! hahaha :) xx

  2. I use the simple night cream too! its great! need to get into a routine more though xx

  3. It's fantastic isn't it! Aww good luck! xx

  4. I also use this LUSH product in my routine. its really Fab !!

    1. It's amazing! I just wish it wasn't limited edition!xx

  6. I love eau roma water and buche de noel too :) They are staples in my skincare routine.

    1. They are fantastic! I'm so sad that the buche de noel is limited edition :'( xx

  7. I LOVE simple products. I think they are super cheap and work really well despite the lower pricetag proving you don't have to go all out of highend to have nice skin!
