I recently held a giveaway which the lovely Daisy won J and as part of the giveaway I asked for suggestions of what you’d like to see from me on the blogging side.

Daisy commented that she’d like to see a skincare post so here goes...

If I’m honest, I’m a little lazy when it comes to skincare – I don’t a full routine set out that I stick to regularly but I’m sure as I get older and my skin starts to change, that will definitely change.

In the morning I usually just wash my face in the shower with whatever I have to hand-at the moment I’m using the new Visibly Clear pink grapefruit facial wash with a scrublett.

I then use a face wipe before applying my make-up. At the moment I’m using the No7 quick thinking 4 in 1 wipes (I’m using these at the moment as the £5 vouchers are out in Boots so these wipes only work out at £1.50 each, otherwise I use whatever I can find or whatever is on offer).

In the evening, I usually use the same wipes just to give my face a once over then use the facial wash again. Then I apply the [comfort zone] Everyday Milk – Silkening gentle cleansing milk cream to cleanse, and the [Comfort Zone] Everyday tonic – hydrating softening tonic to tone.

I use the Origins GinZing Refreshing eye cream for under my eyes.

To moisturise, I use the Liz Earle Skin Repair moisturiser for normal combination.

What skincare products do you use?

I recently held a competition to say thank you to all you lovely people who are following me and that closed last week (yes I know that a whole week has passed but I have been on hen do's both last week and this week so have only just got myself around looking at this)!

Anyway, the winner was the lovely Daisy over at Cupcakes and Cherries :-)
