5 SKINCARE MUST HAVES

I'm always intrigued in others' skincare regime and their tips on how to achieve clear skin, so after having a month of nearly perfect, clear skin (yes, you read correct - a whole month without a breakout), I've decided to share my current regime and the 5 products I swear by.

Side note: I am not a skincare expert or promising these products will work for everyone, I'm just telling you which products have worked wonders for my skin and what I recommend.

Garnier products

Skincare products

Biore blackhead pulling strips

Garnier Micellar Water | Available here
I've been using this on and off for around 2/3 years now and can honestly say I swear by it. I use it with a cotton pad to remove makeup, and even on no makeup days I use it to cleanse my skin. I have normal/combination skin and have used the type designed for my skin type (the green bottle) but find the original just as good. I've tried other brands of micellar water but always come back to Garnier - this is a number 1 must have in my skincare regime.

Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask | Available here
These were the first sheet masks I've tried and are still my favourite! I aim to use one every 2/3 weeks or just when my face looks a bit dehydrated. I leave it on for around 10 minutes and my mam always comments saying how radiant I look afterwards. (Be quick, these are currently only 99p in Boots!! I've just stocked up!)
Biore Pore Strips | Available here
If you're a fan of gross things - you'll love these! You leave them on your nose/chin until they go hard, sort of like papermache, and when you peel them off you can see all the grim stuff that's been hiding in your pores. It's oddly satisfying! I aim to do a couple of these on my nose and chin every couple of weeks and can't live without them now! I've tried a few brands of pore strips but without a doubt find Biore the best, you can get cheaper supermarket own brands but in my opinion it's worth spending the extra on these bad boys. (Ps: The charcoal version also works amazingly)

The Body Shop Seaweed Toner | Available here
 I use this like a standard toner after cleansing, and it does sting a little bit, but I always just assume that means it's working (?) Haha. It's quite worrying what I did before I used toners - I always cleanse, wash my face then tone, and with this it still manages to pick up bits of dirt that I've missed (eww) I'll definitely be repurchasing this product, it's my fave toner at the moment.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Oil | Available here
Confession time - this is my sisters (shhh) It was just sat on the drawers staring at me so I had to give it a try!! I've only used it a couple of times on a night before moisturising but on both occasions the next morning my skin was sooo soft and fresh looking. I was a bit wary about using an oil, especially on my T-zone as sometimes that can be oily to begin with, but it didn't leave a gross residue on my face like expected and worked perfectly with my moisturiser. (Emily, if you're reading this - I pinky promise I'll buy you a new bottle if I accidentally use all of this)


Have you tried any of these products? Let me know in the comments!
