Helloooo! I hope you have had a good week, I am so tired.. I can't even explain.. I've had a chest infection and pleurisy the past 2/3 weeks and it's still lingering in my lungs and making me so exhausted all the time. But on the plus side I ordered myself a shiny new mountain bike this week which I'm so excited to get out on when I'm 100% better, the area I live in has the most perfect, scenic trails to buzz (slowly) round in all weathers, wooo, expect some posts about that when it all arrives and I get back into the swing of things!
Anyway, here's my favourite products to take off my makeup and start to wind down for the evening,
Step 1: Cleanse
Firstly I remove all my makeup using Simple eye makeup remover and Clean & Clear deep cleansing lotion on soft makeup pads, I've been using these 2 products since I was about 14, they are so good and take everything off with ease and leave my face feeling squeaky clean.
Step 2: Exfoliate
Next I move onto exfoliating, recently I have been trying out the new coffee scrub craze from the company Scrub Love*, all their scrubs are 100% natural and I can definitely say I now understand what the hype is all about because this stuff actually does work! The scrub I am currently using is the "Mint Temptation" one, here is what Scrub Love have to say about it "The perfect blend of organic ingredients with a mint kick will leave anyone tempted.. Tea tree mixed with amazing argan oil will cool and moisturise. While more than a hint of mint will stimulare circulation with this organic scrub - leaving you polished to perfection.." Firstly I wet my face with warm water and then apply a handful of lovely, SUPER fresh smelling mint flavoured coffee granules and rub it all over my face, focusing mostly on my cheeks, rubbing it all in, in small circular motions, I must admit it does look like I have a bit of a stubble going on when I am using it, but who cares! It really cools my face down and feels really nice on my skin, I've noticed it has completely got rid of the little bumps I've had on my cheeks for a while now! I leave it on for about 10 minutes or so and then rinse it all off with warm water then pat my skin dry with a towel. My skin feels so soft and nourished afterwards. I am really pleased with this product so far, it can be used all over your body, in the bath or in the shower which is great because I don't always have baths as I much prefer showers.
Step 3: Moisturise
Lastly I use Clinique anti-blemish solutions all-over clearing treatment which keeps my skin moisturised and totally clear of blemishes, I absolutely love this product, it works so well and my skin has never looked better since using it. I have been pretty lucky with my skin in general, however, I would tend to get the odd spot now and again but now I very very rarely get spots since using this cream.
I hope you will try out some if not all of these products, they're all excellent! Thanks for reading! :) x
