Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water – My go to for easy and quick makeup removal. I’ve tried a few micellar waters in the past but this has to be a favourite of mine, it’s one product I do repurchase regularly. It is unscented and doesn’t irritate my eyes at all which makes it perfect for removing my eyeshadow etc as well as any base makeup at the end of the day. I use this as step one for my double cleanse routine. Available in both large and small bottles it’s the perfect companion for a trip away. (125ML though so not totally hand luggage appropriate I am afraid) I know a lot of people have tried this and most get along with it. It’s a good product that does its job & won’t break the bank. A winner in my books. 

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel & the Magnitone Lucid brush* – Using these two products together have been an absolute dream. Dermalogica is a great brand that targets specific skin types with their products, however this cleansing gel is suitable for all. It is designed to remove your impurities without disturbing your skins natural moisture balance. I’ve been using this cleanser for a while now and I have to say I am loving the results. *Touchwood* I have okayish skin anyway, with the odd hormonal breakout, however even when it comes to ‘that time’ my skin has been behaving!  Using the Magnitone Lucid cleansing brush with it has been brilliant and so easy to use. This Electronic facial brush gently cleanses and exfoliates your skin. Again this is suitable for all skin types, regular use of the brush will help minimise your blackheads and breakouts. The one thing that I really love about the magnitone Lucid (not just that it comes in a gorgeous array of biright colours). You can actually use it in the bath or shower as it is waterproof. Making it easy to multitask when you are rushing in the morning to get ready for work! It has two settngs ‘Deep Clean’ or Sensitive. Simply turn on and wait for the beeps which come at 20 second intervals. Move from your forehead, to cheeks/nose to chin for an all over cleanse. It even shuts off after 1 minute so there’s no risk of going a bit OTT with your cleansing! So easy to use and takes no time at all! It also comes with a fancy wireless battery charger, which you only need to use every 2 weeks because the charge lasts ages! Have you tried a cleansing brush like this one before?

 The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet – How I love this sorbet! It not only smells devine it’s ridiculously refreshing on your skin after you’ve completed your other skincare steps. My go to Moisturiser of the moment, it keeps my skin feeling so plump and hydrated. Again ANOTHER product suitable for all skin types so you can all try it! The Vitamin E Range is a popular one anyway but adding this to their line really stepped it up a bit. I’ve found it has been great on the really hot days where my skin has felt particularly parched! It’s £13.00 but The Body shop pretty much always have a sale on or some discount code floating about, definitely worth popping into your basket! 

What skincare bits have you been loving recently? Have you tried any of the products mentioned?
