My skincare routine

Hello and welcome back all my lovely readers! It's been a longer than expected gap in my writing again but that is all due to the weather and being out and about more I'm afraid.

In previous posts I spoke about having oily skin which always proves difficult when trying to find the perfect foundation.

By taking on my first skin care routine I've already seen massive improves in just a few weeks. I'm unbelievably impressed with this three step routine recommended by L'oreal, so here are a few tips on my new routine below:

My 3 Step Skincare Routine

Step 1
Product: L'oreal Gel - Cream Wash
Skin Type: Dry and Sensitive
How often do I use it: Morning and Evening

This product helps to cleanse, purify and soften your skin. All you need to do with this is apply to your face with water and rub in circular motions. Once all rubbed in, wash off with warm water and towel dry.

Step 2
Product: L'oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask
Skin Type: All skin types
How often do I use it: 2-3 times a week

This product helps to cleanse your skin again. After your skin is dry from the first step, you then apply a thin layer over face. After 5-10 minutes the clay mask will have dried bringing out all your pores. You then use warm water to wash off.

Step 3
Product: L'oreal Hydra Genius
Skin Type: Normal and Combination Skin
How often do I use it: Morning and Evening

This product is to be used instead of your daily moisturiser. It helps to leave your skin smooth, soft and hydrated and the first two steps. It also stops your skin from becoming oily throughout the day.

There have been some really incredible differences between now and when I first began my new skincare routine and I highly recommend these products.

I would love to hear what products you use and if you have had the same results.

  1. Great to see you are back blogging! I love reading skincare blog posts because my skin bloody annoying. I keep meaning to pick up one of the L'oreal masks but I keep forgetting.

    I'm currently using some products from the Tea Tree range from The Body Shop and also the Garnier Skinactive purifying tonic gel and they seem to be working really well for me, definitely helping to keep my skin pretty clear x

    1. Thank you Kirsty!
      Definitely do have a look at getting one I can't recommend them enough.

      I love the Tea Tree oil rang they are fab. I'm so pleased these products are working for you!

  2. That mask really does sound truly miraculous! I've got oily skin as well and can't quite cope with the way foundation feels by the end of the day, to say nothing of the effect it has on my skin over time! I do wear tinted BB cream with SPF and even that's a bit hard to take.


    1. I couldn't believe it either Emily. I never expected the products to have such amazing results and so fast!

  3. Great post! I suffer with oily skin too, and especially this summer since I ruined my skin using a Garnier micellar wash (don't try it!) I love the L'oreal clay mask - it's great as a spot treatment too. I'll keep an eye out for the moisturiser as the one I use currently isn't available in the UK, so it's always good to have a backup!

    1. I will keep that in mind thank you for the heads up!
      Yes a backup is always essential, I always keep one as well!

  4. I love the L'Oréal mask so so much!! My favorite is the detox but te purity one is also solid!

  5. I still need to try every one of these products! i love the charcoal clay wash from the clay range but haven't tried any of the others! I want to get these next time i have to get some new skincare! fab post and lovely photo xox

    1. Thank you I'm so glad you enjoyed it! They are definitely worth giving ago ☺️
