My Daily Skin Care Regime

Dear Readers,

Today I thought I'd rave to you all about my beauty regime, which, I honestly (hand on heart), will stick to forever. I'm constantly trialling and testing out new products on my skin, but I've truly found the answer to clear and soft skin!
Ok, so firstly I start my cleansing my skin and removing any make-up etc. For this I use 'Bioderma'. Now, I'm ashamed to admit that I am EXTREMELY late to jump on the band-wagon for this product, however, now I've found it I will be using it for a long time to come. Bioderma is so effective as it has the consistency of water, yet it removes everything with one wipe with a cotton-wool pad. Next, I use the 'Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer'. This is so quick to use and it has a little nozzle so you can simply spray it all over your face and neck. I love this product because it's just so refreshing and has such a pure scent consisting of rose-scented geranium, cucumber and calendula; not to mention that it is just perfect to take abroad for hot countries! 
Last, but certainly not least, is my 'La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo', which I have to admit is my favourite beauty item of all time. This cream acts as a moisturiser as well as a spot-treatment. The consistency is quite thin and dries very fast, so it acts as a great make-up base. I use this every morning and night and apply it to my T-zone, or any places on my face that look like a horrible zit is going to soon emerge. 

Although this last product is not part of my daily regime, I do use it occasionally (usually once or twice a week), especially if I've had a particurly busy and tiring day, and I really feel in the mood for treating myself! The product I use is the 'Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask' by Elemis. When applied the cream itself is quite thin in consistency, but dries rather quickly on the skin to form a clay-coloured mask. My favourite thing about this mask is the light scent of strawberry and kiwi fruit, which almost makes me want to eat it! (But please don't do this!) This mask has fantastic results, and I really noticed them after about three weeks of using the product. After this time my skin felt a lot smoother and looked more glowy and dewy; so I would definitely recommend it. When I use this I cleanse my face before hand, with the bioderma, and then apply the mask to my dry face and leave for about 10-15 mins; after which I wash off with warm water and carry on with my normal daily skin regime.

I hope you all try all or at least one of these products and gain the benefits I have from them! Let me know what a difference these products have made to your skin and  please leave me comments below! Also, please let me know if there are any products you think I should try in my skin-care regime, or any products you would like to me to review, I am completely open to suggestions! I have left the links for the products below. Enjoy!

Until next week, my lovely readers. 
Happy Summer!

Lots of love,
