Current Morning Skincare Routine



Following my previous post on my 'Evening Skincare Routine' I thought I would share with you my Morning routine. I like to keep it as simple as possible because when I'm waking up at 5am the last thing I want is to spend half an hour prepping my skin. With that said here is my morning skincare routine. 





1. Soap and Glory Peaches & Cream Cleanser


I begin with a light cleanser to refresh and clean my face. I apply it to my skin with my hands and massage in circular motions. I then take a warm muslin cloth and wipe away. This cleanser has a refreshing fruity scent that feels lovely In the morning. 



2. First Aid Beauty Hydrating Mist
I then spritz the FAB Hydrating Mist all over my face for a boost of hydration. This is a favourite product of mine for keeping my skin moisturised. Its also great to carry around throughout the day to refresh my makeup or apply after makeup to set it in place. 

3. Liz Earle Skin Tonic Toner
I then tone my skin with the Liz Earle Skin tonic. I apply a small amount onto a cotton pad and swipe it all over my face. This toner has a gorgeous, refreshing light botanical fragrance  which is probably my favourite aspect of it.It makes my skin feel fresh and I've noticed that it does give the skin a nice 'dewy' appearance. It has a cooling effect on the skin which is a nice feeling in the morning. 



4. Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum 


Next up I apply a serum, my favourite is the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum.  I apply it onto dry fingertips, spread onto both hands and apply directly to the skin. I love this product because it's light, easily absorbs and hydrates well. I also find that my makeup applies smoother when I use this. 

5. Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser Normal/Combination


I only recently added this moisturiser to my routine however I have been loving using it. This cream has a luxurious texture that isnt too thick or thin and fully moisturises my face without leaving it greasy. It has natural ingredients which i appreciate and it absorbs into the skin quickly. I find that for the quality this product is of a reasonable price and I would definitely recommend it and Liz Earle as a brand overall as I really enjoy her products. 

6. Body Shop Eye Cream
Moving on I use an eye cream, I mentioned the Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream in my 'Evening Skincare Routine' and I am still loving it as it has done wonders for my under eyes. Since using this they have felt more smooth and my concealer hasn't been creasing.  I apply a small amount onto my ring fingers and start underneath the eye moving in an anti-clockwise motion up to the brow bone and back round again. I then tap the cream in with a light gentle motion to help it absorb into the skin.

7. Caudalie Lip Conditioner

I always ensure to condition my lips so they are moisturised and smooth ready to apply lipstick. This balm glides onto the lips easily and leaves no colour. Out of all my lip balms this is the one I always reach for as I find it does the best job at keeping my lips hydrated. 


I hope you all enjoyed this post as it was actually requested by a reader so thankyou for the suggestion! What's one skincare product that you couldn't live without? Let me know in the comments.
