Morning skincare

I've been meaning to do a post on skin care for a while but my lipsticks take over. It's not often I change my skin care routine, once I find something that works I stick to it. Though I do sometimes switch or add things in depending on the seasons. Lately I've had to up my skin care game as the winters really dried my face out, but these are all my go-to items.

1. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
I used to use Bio-Derma micellar water for ages, but seeing as it wasn't as easy to grab I switched to Garnier as soon as they released it. I does pretty much the same thing, but you can grab it in Superdrug rather than ordering it online. I use this with cotton pads to freshen my face in the morning and use it at night to remove the bulk of my make up.

2. Lush Cosmetics Tea Tree Water
This stuff has helped my skin so much since I got it, I use it as my toner after I cleanse my face. It tightens your pores, reduces any redness, prevents breakouts and just makes your skin feel fab. If I'm having a really bad skin day I sometimes use it directly onto a blemish. It does have a spray but I've never really mastered spraying it on my face, I much prefer to use cotton pads.

3. Nip-Fab Viper Venom Frown Fix*
I haven't had this in my routine for too long, but it's been in for a few weeks now. The frown fix claims to do as it's name says, it boosts the collagen in your skin to reduce and blur any frown lines. I spend probably 23 hours a day frowning as I'm the grumpiest person alive, so I really do have frown lines at 22. You apply this before you apply your moisturiser with its little brush applicator. I do actually really like this and so far I'm convinced it's worked.. or I've stopped frowning and I doubt that.

4. Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion
I loooove this. I got this when I purchased my porefessional top up around a year ago now and I've stuck with it ever since. It's a really light cream/serum and soaks straight into your skin, I don't have time to wait around in the mornings for my moisturiser to soak in for 10 minutes. If my skin needs a really good moisturise I'll do add a hydrating mask into my night time routine (I'll do my night routine another time).

Embyolisse Lait-Creme Concentre
This is an alternative to my Benefit Triple Performing Emulsion, I loved this moisturiser last winter but once it reached summer I had to put it away. It's an amazing moisturiser, just a little too thick for my skin in summer but has worked wonders for this winter. If you have dry skin I would recommend this in a heart beat.

I'm going to do a 'night time' version of this at some point too, so I hope you enjoyed a little skin care insight. What is your morning skin care staples?
