My Skin Care Routine

 

 

I know I have been ranting and raving lately about how much I love the skincare products I use but I honestly have made a complete 180 in my routine and look to my skin. 

Flash back to winter 2015 I was never washing my face at the end of the night, barely applying face moisturiser or eye creams & only applying skincare products during my shower ( face scrub was my homegirl). 

 

 

Morning Routine

Rinse off my facemask; At night I usually apply an overnight facemask so when I wake up I get in the shower and rinse off the leftover mask sitting on my skin.

Cleanser; I use my First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser to wash my face, neck, shoulders and chest. I have pretty sensitive skin so this works a lot better than just regular body soap!

Facial Vitamins; After my shower I spray my First Aid Beauty Vitamin Mist on my skin to add back the moisture and give some TLC to my face!

 Moisturiser; I then apply my First Aid Beauty Moisturiser to my face and neck in preparation for makeup. 

Night Routine

Makeup Eraser; after brushing my teeth and getting my pj's on I like to remove my makeup using my Makeup Eraser.

Lip Scrub; with the winter months still upon us I like to scrub my lips everynight before bed. I use this lip scrub that was in a beauty bag. It does the trick and has a pleasant scent.

Facial Pads; I like to wipe down my face and neck with these First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads every night. I see a great improvement in my skin after using these and I love the results on my acne spots and scars. 

Lip & Eye Creams; I like to apply some eye cream, lip treatment & skin firming mask to my face and neck. I feel like this is a bonus step that I don't really feel is necessary but it will help prevent fine lines and wrinkles in my future.

Overnight Mask; finally the last step to my routine is apply my overnight treatment (which I did a whole post about!). This First Aid Beauty Overnight Mask is heaven sent and I am addicted to applying it to my skin every night! 

This seems like a lot to do for your skincare but I honestly feel that my skin looks a lot better since I have been taking care of it! It only take a few minutes before bed and it helps to relax and calm me down after a long day! 

I would love to hear about your skincare routine and the products you are loving!

February Favourites

Although February is the shortest month of the year (even with Leap Day) it still felt like a pretty solid month filled with a lot of memories and events. During February I found that I was more in love with aesthetically pleasing things than make up or skincare (even though there is a skincare favourite...of course!). I fell more in love with my blog, went out and did things that are new to me as well as realized how cherished my relationships are. Here are my favourites for the month; 

Fresh Cut Flowers 

I know Valentines day probably sparked this interest but I have always loved having fresh flowers (sometimes even fake flowers) around the house. My Tumblr feed has been filling up with fresh spring flowers and I could not be more obsessed! 

A Rosie Bath  

keeping with the theme I am totally loving the Lush bath items that are rose scented. I want to love the body conditioner more but I feel that the Rose Jam has it beat. The smell and lasting power of the body wash is amazing! I need more in my life!

Holy Grail Face Mask 

Now if you read my recent post; CLICK HERE!  but I have fallen in love with the First Aid Beauty Overnight Mask  . I highly recommend it if you have dry patches and stubborn spots you want to get rid of. Every morning it looks like my face just drank a big gulp of water. I am addicted for sure! 

My Daily Routine

I have been sticking to a pretty solid morning routine lately. I know it sounds silly to plan out my day but I find that I am more productive when I stick to my plan (plus I feel accomplished when I get a lot done). My morning routine always starts with making my bed and then having breakfast. After that it varies with what I have planned that day or need completed but I always have a large mug of coffee/tea by my side and a great podcast or youtube video to catch up on! 

Blog Organization

As most bloggers I love to be organized with my thoughts and upcoming post ideas. Lately I have been using the template I created to keep myself organized from week to week and it is helping keeping everything in one place. Before using this system I would have a ton of sticky notes and loose papers everywhere that made it more complicated. I can now write all my ideas and things to do on one page and keep it organized. 

I would love to hear what you have been loving this past month! Leave a comment down below!!
