Although one of my first posts a few months ago on this blog was my skincare routine, summer is approaching and so my skin is changing and so is my routine for skincare! So, that being said, I thought I would share with you all what my changed skincare routine is. I use one or two of the same products as before, but there are also a few new ones!
The first thing I like to do in my skincare routine, morning and night, it wash my face with a face wash (who would have thought haha! Face wash for the face). I recently changed my face wash from my usual Aveeno Daily Face Wash to this Soap & Glory Face Wash. I love both of them, and my Aveeno one definitely lasts a lot longer, but lately I’ve been loving this Soap & Glory Face Wash a bit more that when I ran out of the first one, I went and bought another instead of the usual Aveeno one! If you want to know more about this product, I actually did a review on it a while ago and you can click here to read all about it!
The next thing I apply every single day whether it’s morning or night is this Neutrogena Daily Moisturizer. I’ve been using this for years and have never found another daily moisturizer that I like more! If you saw my last skin care routine, which was an evening skin care routine, you would have seen that I used this brands night cream. After using it for about a month, I found that it didn’t work with my skin as well as this one did and it was a little too heavy for me, so I went back to using this!
I have actually been using this product since my last skin care routine and I absolutely love it! It’s amazing because it takes off all of your makeup and cleans your face so well. I like to use it after washing my face morning and night because it shows that your face wash actually doesn’t do the complete job of removing all your makeup and the dirt on your face from the day! So it’s important to tone after you wash your face if you are someone who worries about blemishes and wants to have the cleanest skin you can! Also…if you can tell, this bottle is still half full, and it’s actually the same one I used in my first skincare post, which was a while ago. So you can see it lasts a really long time and so it’s definitely worth the price in that sense too!
In the mornings I like to put on some sunscreen before my makeup because even though I’m not actually out in the sun that much, it’s good for even the smallest sun exposure. Also, even though the BB Cream I use on a daily basis has SPF 30, I don’t find it does the job as well as a good sunscreen. This sunscreen is my favourite because it feels less like a normal sunscreen and more like a moisturizer, which makes it feel as if you’re not wearing sunscreen all day long, which is great! Although it’s a little pricier, I still think it’s worth it because it doesn’t break me out and protects my skin for the sun without feeling like gross (greasy) sunscreen.
Although I still like the other body shop lip care I used in my last skincare routine, my lips aren’t as dry as they were in the winter so I started using this lighter lip butter. I love this line from the body shop and this lip butter is the BEST. It’s not too heavy and it actually smells great! It also lasts a really long time for how small the container is!
I only use this product in the evening after using face wash about twice a week. My friends got this for me for my birthday back in September and I’ve used it a ton since then, and it still has tons left! Although I like the mask I got from Soap and Glory, that I also did a review on and you can read about here, I wanted to start using this one again because the Soap and Glory one is a little pricey so I don’t like using it every single week. This mask on the other hands is a bargain and works great!! I will probably continue to buy this one when I run out over the Soap and Glory mask. The thing I love about this mask is that it doesn’t make my face burn or feel tight, which I feel most masks do. It also leaves your skin feeling refreshed and smooth! The best feeling! Haha
