Green Skincare Routine | Update

My skincare routine has changed quite a bit since the last time I did a skincare post, so I thought I would fill you in on what products I’ve been using for the last little while. Even as someone with pretty well-behaved skin, I think it’s so important to establish a good routine that cares for your skin and its concerns. It doesn’t have to be expensive and it doesn’t have to be elaborate, but think of it as an investment.

Cleanse

I use a gel cleanser and an oil-to-milk cleanser. If I double-cleanse, I use both, but most of the time I use my gel cleanser and then use the other one to get make-up off (this doesn’t happen very often).

Facial Cleanser – Beautiful Earth

This gel cleanser doesn’t foam or leave my skin feeling stripped, but my face still feels squeaky clean afterwards. It also has a lovely citrus scent and its quite affordable.

Oil-Milk Cleanser – Skin Creamery

Pretty sure this is my third bottle. It’s a bit pricey, but I find that it lasts really long and it literally melts make-up off. It also works well as a morning cleanser when you don’t want something too intense, but don’t just want to use water either. As all Skin Creamery products do, this stuff smells delish.

Moisturise

Imperialis – Lush Cosmetics

For the longest time, I’ve been using the Skin Creamery Everyday Cream, but I decided to switch over about a month ago. I was just a bit tired of it and wanted to try something a bit lighter for the summer.

I’ve been using Imperialis from Lush, and it’s so good! The smell was a bit weird at first but I got used to it. It’s really light so you can build it if you have drier skin. I prefer to pair it with an oil if I need it. It’s a bit pricey too, but I think it’ll last a while. I’m been using it for just over a month, and I’m about a quarter way through the tub.

Tone

Eau de Roma – Lush Cosmetics

Also on my second bottle of this. The bigger bottle is much more cost-effective to buy, so if you want to try this, just go big. It removes mascara really well, plus it serves as a good hydrating spray under moisturiser. (R165)

Extra things

Facial Hydrating Oil – Skin Creamery

This stuff works really well for dry skin, and a little goes a long way. It is pricey, but face oils are expensive and when I bought it, it was almost 3 x cheaper than others on the market. (The price has since gone up).

Tea Tree Oil – Soil Therapy

Tea tree oil will forever be my holy grail skincare product. It’s natural, its cheap and it works like a bomb.

Spot Treatment – Naturals Beauty

Works pretty well, and it lasts long. It’s also really affordable. (The whole range is).

Dark Angels – Lush Cosmetics

This is such a lovely exfoliator. Only thing is, it makes one big mess. So go easy, and maybe use it in the shower, as this makes for easier clean-up.

For masks, I use the Naturals Beauty one, and Skin Creamery Facial Cleansing Powder with honey. Both work well, but I’m yet to find a mask that completely blows my mind.

And lastly, for lips, I’ve been using the Vaseline Lip therapy for the longest time. It’s not natural, but it does work and I haven’t been able to find one that works as well.

So that’s it, I think.

Happy skin care-ing.
