Current Skincare Routine

So I'll jump right in and introduce the main product of my 2-step simple routine and to be honest my little skin savorier, CLINIQUE - Exfoliating Scrub. Now if you were a follower from before June then you would know that I was in SERIOUS need of repairing my skin, I needed a product that included a scrub, helps fight blackheads and reduces blemishes just an all round cleanser really. 

I purchased this from the CLINIQUE counter at duty free when I went on holiday at the start of July, this is my first time buying from CLINIQUE and I've really wanted to give it a go to see if them as a brand are really worth paying the money for and in this case, the results were AMAZING so it was totally worth it! 

This product is a skin-cleansing water-based scrub for strong, oily skin types. Allows better make up application and moisture absorbs more easily, also helps promote more even skin tone refining texture leaving skin looking more translucent, clear and flake free

Oh hello bad hair ;)

(First I remove my make up with a face wipe) 
So I apply the product all over my face but excluding the eye area and I leave to settle for around 5 mins and then rinse off gently with a hot flannel. My skin is left feeling really refreshed, cleansed and soothed. Then I splash my face with small amounts of cold water making sure my face is clear of product, following this I steaming my face 2-3 times a week for about 15 mins, opening up my pores to really get all that dirty and oil out! I find that by combining these 2 routines my skin really has improved, and for someone who used to suffer really bad from blemishes my skin tells a different story.

The only thing I would warn you about is the smell, I can't say its my favourite and would for sure prefer a perfumed free scrub but I've read a few reviews online since buying this and it seems to be just me that can fault it so maybe you'll find it refreshing? Also 1 other thing I wanted to add, earlier I mentioned the scrub evens out skin tone, and around my chin area I have scars from old blemishes a kind of redish/brown colour and CLINIQUE - Exfoliating Scrub really has reduced that making it less visible and that was more than what i was expecting from this product! Now it doesn't state it reduces old blemish scars in the description so it might not work for everyone but it's given me a noticeable difference. 

I completely give this product the thumbs up and couldn't recommend it enough, I've had countless comments on how much my skin has improved and my make up now appears more flawless. Thank the lord I've found a product that has repaired my skin disaster, it retails for £17.00 from CLINQUE website, low cost but amazing results.. what more could you ask for?

Happy Monday everyone hope this has helped those out there looking for a new daily skin care routine, If you have an questions fire them away in the comments box below, apart from that have a great week and I'll speak to you on my next post!
