Updated Skincare Routine 2015

About two months ago, my skin broke out quite badly, especially on my forehead and chin. I had red, angry spots popping up all over my face, which I felt really self conscious about, and I buried my face in 6 layers of concealer when I went to school. 
I tried out a few different products, and I think I've got a good routine of products that works with my skin and clears up my skin and prevents the majority of spots (although I do get the odd annoying spot).


In the mornings, I use the Simple Spotless Skin Triple Action Face Wash. This has helped so much to clear up my skin and it seems to prevent spots, as I haven't had as many break outs since I started using this, and I always feel properly awake and 'clean' when I wash my face with this in the mornings. This I think is an essential in my skincare routine, and I always notice a difference when I don't use it.
After cleansing my face, I moisturise using the Simple Illuminating Radiance Cream (I promise this post isn't sponsored by Simple, I just really enjoy their products!). I've been wanting to try this moisturiser for ages, and I saw it a month or so ago in Boots on offer for around £3, which is really good seeing as it's usually around £6 or £7. 
I use this almost everyday, and it sinks in really quickly, and makes my face look really bright and radiant, which I've been loving. 
That's really all I have time to do in the mornings, as I'm normally running about crazy getting ready for school, and this routine takes me all of five minutes to do.


At night, I tend to spend much more time on my skincare. I usually remove my makeup as soon as I get home from school, and I do this by using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, which removes every bit of makeup from my face. I've been through at least 3 bottles of this and I don't intend on buying anything else. 
I also use the Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream and the Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream, which I'm having to use sparingly now, as I'm getting close to finishing them. These two products work so well on my skin, the moisturiser makes my face feel so hydrated and smooth, and takes hardly any time to sink into my skin. The eye cream feels really nice on my skin, and without it, my eyes feel dry. This takes a little longer to sink into the skin, but I love using it as it helps get rid of my dark circles and hydrates my under eyes. 
I usually apply my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip Cream a few times a week, which really hydrates my lips and makes them so smooth, which is really good as my lips have been an absolute state recently!
