I have always been a beauty junkie. I like to try new skin care and beauty products that come out on the market. Although things have changed since having children. I don’t really have the time to spend hours at the drugstore or Sephora looking at each and every product that catches my eye. Now I tend to do some research into my products before I actually purchase them. If your interested, you can read here about my makeup products and here for the multi tasking products I use as a busy mama.

I keep my routine simple. Mostly because that’s all the time I have right now but largely because that’s what works for me.

I would describe my skin as normal. It’s not particularly dry or oily and I don’t get too spotty.

My current skincare products

Neutrogena Ultra gentle daily cleanser – Its my fist time trying this face wash. I think its good. It washes away my makeup and makes my face feel clean so I would probably repurchase.

Make up eraser – I use this as a second form of cleaning after using an actual face wash. I like to double cleanse and this face cloth is perfect. I don’t have to use extra product and my skin doesn’t get dried out. I have talked about this product before here, I find that it gets off the extra eye makeup and foundation round the hairline.

Tarte Tarteguard SPF 30 – I LOVE this moisturiser! I love the fact that it has an SPF of 30. It’s not a greasy moisturizer and its a great base for makeup. I have repurchased this a few times now.

Clinique pep-start eye cream – I use this as my day eye cream. Its okay. A lot of eye creams can irritate my skin but this one doesn’t seem to bother me. Its nothing amazing but does feel refreshing of a morning. I tend to try new eye creams when I finish one up. But I am yet to find an amazing eye cream.

Farmacy Sleep Tight firming night balm – This is the first time I have used this face cream. It is a balm though, so if you have greasy skin I probably wouldn’t try it. I do find that it sits on my skin but it does soak in overnight. I like the feeling and look that my skin has in the morning after using it.

Body Shop Vitamin E eye cream – I am almost at the end of this. I use this eye cream of an evening. It was fine and also doesn’t irritate my eyes. It’s a product I put on and don’t really think about but as mentioned above I am yet to find an eye cream that really wows me. So I may try something different for my next night eye cream.

I also will use a face mask every now and then. I like to try different sheet masks from the face shop or Sephora. I also use St Ives face scrub.


Do you have any product recommendations for me?
