Morning and Evening Skin Care Routine

Every morning, or on days when I plan on wearing make up, I use a couple of products to help keep my dry skin hydrated throughout the day. I am not that good at keeping up with my skincare routine, but I do try doing it at least once a day, whether in the day or evening.

For the morning, I would first use the Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Detoxifying Scrub and I find this a very gentle scrub with a mild but pleasant scent and perfect for mornings. Given its a scrub, I find a lot of scrubs will turn my sensitive skin redder than it already is but not with this scrub! Its gentle but does the job and I feel my skin feels a lot smoother and applying makeup is better.

The next thing I use is Boots Expert Anti-Redness Serum. I have used this serum for a while now, and am on my third bottle already. I find this serum at radically reduced my redness, and have made wearing blush possible, without looking embarrassed or as if I have a fever, which is how red I can get.

The last thing I apply in the morning is Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer. I am still testing this out, have been for a couple of weeks but so far I find this is a very nice moisturizer for daytime. I do use this for a nighttime moisturizer but I find its not as heavy, therefore, not as moisturizing as others I've tried, which means I'm still on the lookout for a nighttime moisturizer.

Evening Routine 

Given than I am wearing makeup, the very first thing I use is the Garnier Clean+ Nourishing Cleansing Oil. I'm already more than half-way done with my second bottle of this. Its almost the perfect cleansing oil I've tried. I find it removes almost all my makeup and does not dry out my skin. The only thing I noticed about this is that although it can remove gel liner, or so the one I have, it cannot remove Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner. I find that this product will only fade down, not actually disappearing.

The next thing I use is the Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser. I don't know if you're supposed to use two cleaners, but I find this helps clean my face even more, and because its a bit minty, it tingles the skin which I love. This is a really great product and I think if I had to chose between this one or the Garnier oil I would have to go with this one because it feels nicer on the skin whilst applying it.

The rest of my evening routine consist of applying the Anti Redness Serum and the Simple moisturizer.

I hope this was insightful and interesting : )
