Hi guys,

As you know by now, I am a beauty blogger and I have a thing for changing my skincare products every so often so I thought I would give you a little update as to what I have been using.

AM: I normally use the Alpha H Balancing Cleanser (£25) or L’Oréal Purifying Gel Wash (£4.49) in the morning as they are very gentle on my skin.
PM: I use my RMS Coconut Cream (£13) or my Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm (£38) as my first cleanse to remove my makeup. All I do is scoop out a little bit from the pot, rub it all over my dry face and then remove with a warm face cloth. After this I use the Elizabeth Arden Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser (£18) or Good Things Blackhead Cleanser  to remove the last traces of makeup and to scrub my face.

After the cleansing step, both in the morning and the evening, I use an exfoliating toner which has been the Pixi Glow Tonic (£18) for the past couple of weeks. I soak a cotton pad with this and wipe all over my face and neck. I love this toner, it smells great, my skin doesn’t feel irritated and it does exactly what it says on the tin.

AM: I use the Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Glow Boost Skin Serum (£12.99) to add some radiance to my skin.
PM: I go between the Eucerin Dermo Purifier Active Concentrate (£9.50) and the L’Oréal Skin Perfection Advanced Correcting Serum (£16.99) as it depends on how my skin is acting that day before I choose which one.

AM: I have been loving the Garnier Skin Naturals Soft Essentials 24hr Nourishing Day Cream (£4.19) which is enriched with rose water and specifically made for dry and sensitive skin. It’s not the greatest but I will use it until it runs out and then buy my normal origins moisturiser which works wonders.
PM: I love Nivea Crème (£1.39) as it is the best in my opinion but when I noticed the Nivea Visage Oxygen Power Reviving Night Cream on the stand in Boots I decided to try it out. I have not been disappointed. It’s delicious.

I use my Alpha H Liquid Gold (£33.50) 3 - 4 times a week in the evening and don't put on any moisturisers as I want this to do its magic without any interruption. I soak a cotton pad with this and wipe all over my face and neck and leave overnight. I also use an exfoliator once a week as I like a deep clean and my JustBe Gentle Exfoliator (£18.50) works a treat.

I have two masks in rotation at the moment which will come as no surprise to anyone but they are the Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask (£10) or my Good Things Manuka Honey Mask (£5.99). I normally use these twice a week but if my skin needs a little pick me up during these days, I will whack on another coat.

If you would like to see individual reviews on any of these products leave a comment below and I will give an in depth review.
