Links to above products:- Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask, £20; Avene Skin Recovery Mask, £12.50; Kiehl's Washable Cleansing Milk, £18; Shu Uemura Skin Purifyer Cleansing Oil, £28; Vichy Idealist Moisturiser, £25 (full size); Nuxe Face Oil; My Beauty Diary Collagen Facemasks. (I purchased all of these products, except the two beauty sample box items.)
Today I'm sporting a non-make-up face in favour of letting my skin breathe and soak up some natural moisture. I try to have at least three or four au naturale days in a week, mostly because trying to apply a face of make-up at 6:30am doesn't always work in my favour! I've recently switched up my skincare routine to adapt for the changing seasons: the onset of autumn and winter calls for a much-needed injection of moisture and overall TLC.

To start, I apply two or three pumps of the Shu Uemura skin purifyer cleansing oil all over my face. While a lot of people are sceptical of cleansing oils, I simply can't sing their praises enough: the Shu Uemura choice melts away my make-up with ease, even stripping my lashes of waterproof mascara. Emulsify with a little lukewarm water and rinse off for soft, cleansed skin. The key with cleansing oils for me is that they maximise natural moisture on the skin. I follow up with my Kiehl's Cleansing Milk, applying it in tapping motions, leaving on for five minutes and rinsing off, then select a moisturiser of choice. I'm currently enamoured with the Vichy Idealist moisturiser and Avene's Skin Recovery Cream, which leave my skin feeling plump and baby soft.

Twice a week, I also like to treat my skin to an all-out pamper. Along with the rest of the blogging community, I'm a huge purveyor of Origins' Drink Up Intensive Mask. Applied on the skin as an overnight treatment, all that is required is a pea-sized amount of this peachy, Maoam scented product. It is usually the morning after this mask that I like to go without make-up! On other occasions, I'll opt for this teeny-sized Nuxe face oil to nourish and replenish the moisture in my skin. I have a feeling that the full-size will be in my stocks very soon, as it'll be perfect when the cold and wind really hits.

Alternatively, another all-time favourite of mine are the My Beauty Diary sheet facemasks. The collagen moisturising mask is one of the best options to pop on after cleansing your face to really boost the benefits of any products used. Packaged in individual sachets, I like to throw one on before a bath for the ultimate relaxation. Finally, I'll divulge my secret skincare tip as a parting gift: tea tree oil daubed on spots and imminent breakouts before bed. My secret since the age of fourteen.

  12. Oooh thanks for sharing your secrets! Speaking of oils, I've only ever heard good things about that Shu Uemura cleanser. I like using tea tree oil too on spots but also discovered that Lavender oil is also pretty good too! I've been trying a tester of Kiehls Midnight recovery concentrate too and I wake up to baby soft skin!

  16. Hi, Are you well?

    It is really helpful article about the topic of daisybutter.com.We believe fighting global warming is the most important issue of website. I so much interest about your article. I know it is not any simple information. This is very nice post! I will bookmark this blog as I have The cost of this medication is quite affordable. Buy Femtrex today. It is value trying, at least for 3 several weeks to experience the consequences. There will not be adverse reactions during this interval. Dianabol is a difference and all the medication is identical because of the identical component.

    Thanks for this.
