My morning skincare routine! // Including MOTD

Hi Guys!

Sorry that posts have been one every other day instead of every day, i’ve got my wisdom teeth coming through at the moment and they’re torture! (if anyone has any remedies for tooth ache i’m all ears!) ❀

Anyway this blog post is about my skin care routine and what products I use in the morning.
As soon as I wake up in the morning I go and brush my teeth, I know a lot of people usually eat breakfast first but I never eat breakfast so I go and do that.  Then I go and sit at my vanity table which is in my bedroom.  

 The first product I use is the garnier micellar water for combination skin, this is a clenser which is very kind to the skin and eyes so it is great for a quick freshen up inthe morning.  As I have a seperate routine for the evening (to be on the blog soon!) all of my makeup is already removed from the day before but I feel like it really refreshes my face and begins to wake me up.  (sorry about the image blurriness, i’m pretty sure it wasn’t blurry on my phone!)

Next I use a hydrating toner by Lancome to wake me up a bit more and to tone my face.  This toner is a little bit stronger than tyhe micellar water but I find that it is really helpful to tone my face twice daily.


After toning I then moisturise, I use the lancome hydrazen moisturiser (I have already mentioned in a previous post that I have a lot of sample pots of this!) all over my face and neck, I always apply the moisturiser all the way down my neck as I have quite dry skin there and I find that my foundation really clings to it if I miss this step.  Finally I apply the soap and glory make yourself youthful eye cream under my eyes.  I don’t have any eye bags just yet but it doesn’t hurt to start early πŸ˜‰ 

After all of this (I promise it’s much quicker when I’m doing it) I then go on to do my makeup!

Heres my MOTD picture, just a quick one from yesterday as my face is super swollen from my wisdom teeth 😦

Hope you are all having a great monday!
