The Perfect Skincare Routine

I am always looking to mix up my skincare routine to find the best combination for my skin and I finally think I have cracked it and found one that works the best for me. To make sure I get all of my makeup off, I use the Ark Skincare Pre – Cleanse which is an oil that breaks down all makeup; including eye makeup and mascara, woo! Usually at this point I can already feel that my skin is a lot cleaner but I then go in with a cleanser to make sure that all of my pores are clean.

The cleanser that I have been absolutely loving recently is the NU Skin Gentle Cleanser. It is so gentle on the skin and leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean. I always know that after I have washed it off that my skin is completely makeup free. Once I have cleansed, I usually go in with a bit of toner and the one I have been obsessed with for quite a while now is Lush’s Eau Roma Water which is great for my sensitive skin.

Once I have cleansed and toned I make sure that I add some moisture back into my face so depending on the time of day, I either use a light day cream or a heavier night cream. The two that I have been using the most are the Nivea Daily Essentials ones. They are fragrance free; which is great for sensitive skin and they don’t make my face oily or break me out.

Lush 9-5 Cleanser

Apart from the Liz Earle cleanse and polish, I haven’t found a cleaner that I love and works well for my skin, well until now.

My sister works for Lush and she recommended the 9-5 cleanser, which I had heard a bit about but had never tried.After using it for about a month now, I am officially obsessed. It’s so gentle on the skin which means that you can use it both day and night and it doesn’t leave your face feeling irritated. Sometimes I find that cleaners leave my face feeling quite tight and dry, but this leaves my skin feeling so soft and feeling amazing.

You need to tiniest bit and you can really feel is cleaning out all of your pores and the slight fragrance leaves your face smelling beautiful. I normally use the cleanser both in the morning and the evening and I follow up with a Lush toner and my moisturiser and my skin always feels so nice.

Have you used a Lush cleanser, what one if your favourite?
