The Guide to Flawless Skin!

   Hello! Today I wanted to share with you guys my skincare routine I’ve adapted in the New Year. Following finals as I was wrapping up my degree and getting ready to move home through the holidays I felt like my skin was a mess. It was really dry and I had several spots that made me feel super self-conscious and uncomfortable. 

 I’ve watched Zoella’s videos for a long time now and I’ve often taken cues from her in her personal skincare regimen as I seem to have similar skin problems to her. 
   Between her recommendations as well as many other bloggers recommendations and hundreds of reviews on these products I was very excited to see what results these products would have for my skin. The three products I’ve grown to swear by is the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm, the Sunday Riley Good Genes serum, and the Clinique Moisture Surge moisturizer.
  I was both eager and apprehensive to try the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm. Although I read nothing but raving reviews, it seemed really strange to cleanse my face and remove make-up with a balm. However I am absolutely in love with it. The balm has the consistency of Vaseline which you apply with barely damp hands. It easily removes all make-up including mascara and is accompanied with a muslin cloth that gently exfoliates your skin as you dry it off.  My skin feels so clean and clear! Even cleaner than when I am using my Clarisonic.  It is a little bit expensive, but it comes in a pretty large pot and I think it lasts quite a long time. 
  The Sunday Riley Good Genes serum is probably the single best product I have ever put on my skin. The serum is designed to fade hyper pigmentation, reduce fine lines, and plump your skin. It is extremely brightening and smoothing and the moment I use it I see a difference in my skin.
   The Clinique Moist Surge moisturizer has been a long time favorite of mine but I had never know that a thicker application of the product can double as a moisturizing mask! This alone has turned my skin around as it is no longer dry or peeling. Before bed I apply a thick layer to my face and neck and leave it for the entire night.
These are the products I absolutely cannot live with out in my skin routine that have turned my skin around. My skin is brighter, moisturized, and clearer. Some of the products are more expensive but to me clear skin is worth the cost! You can find Clinique products at most department stores as well as beauty shops like Sephora. And I purchased the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm and the Sunday Riley Good Genes skin treatment from Amazon!
What's your skin care routine?
