The incredible weather made me feel strangely positive today - it's amazing how weather can influence human emotions! I started the day with a more intense version of my normal Sunday skincare routine; great idea, as it made me feel even more fresh, clean and summery.
The products I use change on a regular basis; however, this is the selection I'm using at the moment. I'll be sure to post an update when I've switch my products around!
There's no doubt that I've mentioned Origins' Modern Friction before in a favourites video, as it's a product that I've been loving for quite some time. This is perfect for rigorous exfoliation, which I've discovered that I should only do once a week, due to my unfortunately dry skin. Infused with lemon oil and vitamin C, Modern Friction makes skin feel super-soft and spectacularly clean.
Another Origins product, the Clear Improvement charcoal mask is great for use directly after the exfoliator. It's perfect for clogged pores, and practically magnetises out any impurities. If you've got sensitive skin, it can sting ever so slightly, but otherwise it's a highly recommended product.
This has to be one of my favourite products of all time! The Clinique Clarifying Lotion is one of those products that will work regardless of skin type. A friend recommended this to me, saying that it removed every last trace of dirt and makeup on her face - and she was 100% telling the truth; I tried it after thoroughly removing all my makeup with a cleanser, and I was actually amazed that it still found makeup on my face.
Finally, the Hydra Zen moisturiser by Lancome is my current favourite moisturiser. I got given this by my sister, and it instantly replaced the one I was using at the time. It's not heavily scented, rather, it smells fresh and clean, and it doesn't feel sticky or ridiculously thick. It really sinks into the skin, but I do find that it needs a second application after a few hours if you're going bare-faced.
