Make Some Changes To Your Morning Skincare Routine

Hey guys! I mentioned in my previous skincare rediscoveries post that I have been trying to improve my both my morning and night skincare routine as my skin can only be described as not behaving at the moment. I have found myself reaching for the same/similar products so I can vouch for all the below featured in this post. 

First up I use the Nivea Soothing Cleansing Mousse, I know that foam cleansers can be quite stripping on the skin but I find that this works really well first thing in the morning. If you have any good cleanser suggestions for blemish prone skin which are not too drying please send them my way! I have been using this cleansing mousse from Nivea for a while and I do really enjoy it as it leaves me skin soft and smooth and it does not strip my skin or leave it too dry.

I bought the La Roche Posay Effaclar Clarifying Lotion a few weeks ago as I had a Boots gift voucher and I had heard lots of people raving about it. I love the Effaclar range from the brand and I have tried lots of things from it and have always been impressed. This is very soothing and soft on the skin, the name however is a little misleading as this is a thermal spa water.  I am a huge fan though as I feel they are non drying and kind to the skin. It is contains salicylic acid which we all know is an active ingredient to help target blemishes. I find that it unblocks my pores and takes away some shine and excess oil especially around my T-zone.

Not a must but a hydrating stage is brilliant after cleansing and toning, I don't use this strictly every morning but I do like adding the Caudalie Grape Water into my morning routine. It soothes, moisturises and refreshes which is a great extra stage before actually adding your moisturiser. Even though my skin is oily in areas, it can be very drying especially with using products to try and unblock clogged pores and get rid of blemishes. Therefore this adds a little more moisture into my skin.

I then apply my La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo directly onto my blemishes and congested areas, as this helps to unblock pores, controls shine and reduces the redness and appearance of blemishes. I do find that it does effectively reduce any big angry blemishes, and makes them less sore and protruding.

The formula of the Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care is targeted for complexions which have blemishes, excess shine and oil, marks and scarring, and unbalanced skin tones. It contains active ingredients such as salicylic acid and glycolic acid, which helps with reducing the look and appearance of imperfections. What I like the most about this is that I initially thought it would be a thick cream but in fact it is the opposite, it is thin and has a light creamy texture which absorbs into the skin quickly and easy without leaving a residue layer on the skin.

What have been your current favourite skincare products & will you be picking any of the following up?
