Spring/Summer Skincare 2019 Essentials

Finding the right skincare products for my skin has been a complete game changer. This selection of products has been what I have been using for the last couple of months and my skin has been feeling great and looking fresh and almost completely spot free, I have found for my skin that skincare is always worth investing in and I have had some really great results from these products. 
Spring/Summer Skincare 2019 Essentials
For cleansing the skin in the morning, I will usually use whatever I have on hand to refresh the skin before completing my routine. At the moment I have been using a face wash from Soap and Glory, I have used quite a few from the brand and I love them all. Or I will use the Emma Hardie Morgina Light Cleansing Gel (review here). I also use the Emma Hardie product in my evening skincare routine. I will go in with the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish as my first cleanse to remove my makeup and then follow up with the Emma Hardie Gel and my skin loves this duo! Both products leave the skin clean and fresh but hydrated and comforted with all traces of makeup removed. 

I have been making an effort this year to apply eye creams in my morning and evening skincare routines as I am in my mid-twenties now and know I need to take good care of my under eye area. Both eye products that I have been using are from Tropic. In my morning routine, I have been using the Eye Work Rejuvenating Serum, it's light on the skin and I adore the applicator! It has a ceramic tip applicator that helps to depuff the under eye which I have been in serious need of recently. In my evening skincare routine, I use the Eye Dream Age-Defying Overnight Butterbalm. This is heavier than the serum but super effective! It plumps the skin and intensely hydrates. 

I love serums, oils and treatments and I have found these products to be the most effective for my skin. In my morning routine, I have been loving the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, it has the best scent! This is a vitamin C treatment that has been helping my skin to look much healthier and brighter. In my evening routine, I love the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Transformation Gel and the Pixi Rose Oil Blend. The Ole Henriksen product has so transformative for my skin, I have noticed that my skin has much less discolouration and over the last three and half months of use, the marks left behind from years have acne have started to disappear! The Pixi Rose Oil Blend is extremely nourishing and I couldn't without oil in my routines now. 

To moisturise the skin for the day time I have been obsessed with the REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream. You only need a small amount of this to keep the skin soft and hydrated and my skin drinks this stuff up. After I have applied this I will always follow up with an SPF, my favourite is the Glossier Invisible Sheild. This is weightless on the skin and I love that it's clear. You can get 10% off your first Glossier order when you shop via this link. Before moisturising or for whenever my skin needs a pick me up, I have been using the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic. I have been using this product for years now and it's refreshing and soothing on the skin. 

My face mask of choice recently has been the Alpha-H Clear Skin Blemish Control Mask (review here). It helps to banish any spots and whiteheads without leaving the skin dry or stripped of moisture and it only needs to be left on the skin for around ten minutes. My final skincare essential is RapidLash. I adore this product (you can see my before and after photos here) and I am so happy to have this back in my evening routine again! My lashes have missed this product and I was so excited when they sent me a parcel recently.
