Skincare Routine: My Top Picks

Trying new skincare products is probably one of my most favourite things to do when it comes to self-care. It’s such a great feeling when you try a new skincare product and totally fall in love with it. A couple of weeks ago, I attended a VIP Body Shop Event where I was informed about my skin type (sadly it’s dry and dehydrated). From receiving these results, I have changed my skincare routine as well as kept myself hydrated throughout the day. I am very pleased with myself for purchasing these new skincare products from The Body Shop as they have massively helped my skin to feel and look much better.

So, here are my favourite skincare products that I have been loving these past few weeks.

Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

I can’t believe I waited this long to try the Camomile Cleansing Oil. It is definitely the best makeup remover I have ever used. If you’re after something that is very quick and efficient at removing makeup then this will be perfect for you. I would typically use this product after I have used a cotton pad to wet my face. I recommend applying a small amount of the oil onto a cotton pad and then begin to wipe away the makeup. The instant results I receive are incredible. I highly recommend this makeup remover as it removes all makeup, it smells great and it’s perfect for sensitive dry skin. The thing I love most is that a small amount goes a very long way.

Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash

After I have taken my makeup off, I would use the Vitamin E Facial Wash. It is so soft and soothing… I absolutely love it! The best thing about this product is that it really is GENTLE. I really like how true this product is. This is definitely perfect for anyone with sensitive dry skin. Honestly, it’s so soft. It will leave your skin feeling smooth, clean and refreshed. ALSO… it smells great! I recommend applying this product with wet hands as it is just a moisturising face wash which needs to be applied well all over the face. You will only need a tiny bit of this on your hands as a thin layer is just the right amount.

Vitamin E Hydrating Toner

WOW!!! This product is definitely my favourite which is why I have saved the best till last. It definitely does the job it’s supposed to! I have been using this product for about 2 weeks now and I can already see the difference between using the product and not using the product on my skin. I have never used a hydrating toner before and until 2 weeks ago I had no idea what it was. I am so happy with the results that I actually use this product twice a day. I always use this product after the facial wash, once all my makeup has been removed as well as using the product every morning when I clean my face. The best way to apply the hydrating toner is onto a cotton pad. You will only need a few drops of this because again a small amount goes a long way.

I am very thankful for my Body Shop consultation as I would have never got any of these products. If you are unsure of what type of skin you have, I highly recommend getting a consultation to find out. I had been searching for years to find the perfect skincare routine and finally, now I can say that I have found the perfect skincare routine that works for me as well as keeps my skin feeling clean, clear and well hydrated.
