I have another confession to make, guys! I’m a skincare addict. However, owing to the fact that I’m always trying new products, I rarely commit to a proper routine.
So, today, I thought that I would share my current skincare routine with you.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had challenging skin; drugstore products either left my skin feeling too oily or too parched. However, If you can remember, I recently experimented with my first luxury brand when I reviewed Clarins Hydro-Essentiel Silky Cream; well, it worked so well for me that I went to the Clarins website and purchased the Cleansing Trio for Combination to Oily Skin.
Please note that Clarins did not sponsor this post; I genuinely love the items that I purchased and would recommend them to anyone looking for new products to try.
Current Skincare Routine
Makeup Remover – So, here’s the thing, while this trio did come with a makeup remover; I haven’t used it owing to the fact that I don’t wear makeup very often. To be honest, I’m too lazy to put in that effort every day. Also, I don’t really know how to properly apply certain products; I wish I did though.
Cleanser – The cleanser that came with the pack is the Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed.
As someone who struggles with skin that is either too dry or too oily, I love that this particular cleanser doesn’t leave me with either problem; I will likely replenish this product when I run out as this is a rare occurrence for me.
Toner – As for toner, I’m using the Clarins Toning Lotion with Iris; which I’m loving. I have legitimately noticed a reduction in the number of visible blackheads and my pores have gotten smaller in the weeks that I’ve been using this toner. Additionally, much like the cleanser, I love that this toner leaves my skin feeling fresh instead of sucking out all of the moisture in my face leaving me with uncomfortably dry skin that feels tight and annoying.
Moisturizer – The final step of my skincare routine is moisturizer; I’m currently using the Clarins Hydro-Essentiel Silky Cream that I received as a sample with the purchase of my cleansing trio. However, I will be purchasing the full sized product when the container is empty.
To date, I think that this is my favourite facial cream that I have used as it absorbs immediately and doesn’t leave behind a gross, oily residue.
What are your skincare favourites? I would love to hear about your routine and the products that you use.
