Morning Skincare // Favourites


Hello lovely people, I hope you're all having a wonderful day so far. I'm in the process of planning my final year project, which is kind of a dissertation but with a practical element to it. It's going to be a year of lots of hard work but i'm so excited to get stuck in and try really hard. Also, to all of you who've just started university, good luck & congratulations to you all, you'll be amazing.

Today's post is going to be all about my morning skincare routine, and what I do pre-makeup. I do post a lot about skin care and my routines, but I do keep finding new things which are working for me and finding new steps to add which I want to share with you all. 
First up, you guys know I am absolutely loving the Botanics organic range. This toning spritz * is something i've been using every morning for the past few weeks. I just find this so soothing and refreshing, especially if i'm going to be applying a full face of makeup. 

I really love the B. Clean range from Superdrug. It's all fragrance and alcohol free and this particular cleanser is the perfect Liz Earle dupe. I just love this in the morning as it melts away all the sleep and dirt from your face and leaves you super refreshed. 
I used to only exfoliate once a week, but I do find myself doing this daily now as I just feel like it leaves my face with a perfect, fresh base and my makeup always applies and looks so much better. I love this one by B. Cosmetics as it's really gentle and not too 'harsh' for the morning.
I don't really use moisturiser every morning, I tend to only use this if i'm going for a super 'light' and dewy make up look. My skin just doesn't get on with primer and moisturiser together so it has to be one or the other. If I do use it though, I do find myself always reaching for the B Cosmetics moisturiser. It has a really refreshing scent and it just sinks into your skin instantly. 
I actually got sent this Sun Kissed serum and at first, I was quite dubious about trying it. I've heard amazing things about Vitamin C but I just don't use serums that often on my face. Honestly, I was so impressed with this formula. I personally find it too 'thick' to use at night but it is the most incredible primer, I kid you not. It just has this 'sticky' texture and my makeup always looks incredible when I use this. It's perfect for when I want a 'heavy', full-face look. 
Now this Botanics primer is perfect for just normal, natural everyday makeup. It leaves my skin feeling super fresh and glowing and my makeup always lasts a really long time and still looks amazing when I use this product. A little goes a long way but I really love that this isn't heavily scented or 'thick' to use. 

Step-by-step Morning Skincare
1. Melting gel cleanser
2. Exfoliator
3. Toning Spritz
4. Primer/Moisturiser (Skin Kissed for a heavy look, Botanics for everyday and Moisturiser for a low coverage dewy look)



I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I've definitely found that by having a specific morning skincare routine it not only makes my skin look and feel better, but my makeup applies easier and looks so much better.

Let me know if you have any particular products you love using in the morning! I hope you have an amazing rest of the week.
