Morning Skincare Routine


I've managed to stick to the same morning skincare routine for the past couple of months now so I thought I would share the products I currently use on a daily basis, especially now I know that my skin is happy with this current routine as it's had plenty of time to adjust!

I like to start off by using the Michael Todd Honey and Oat Deep Pore Cleanser (reviewed here) (full size $24.00/approx. £15.50) in the shower. It's lovely and gentle and always leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and refreshed afterwards! If I'm not showering in the morning on days where I've had a shower the night before I will use Botanicals Chamomile and Mandarin Skin Tonic (150g £14.95) on a cotton pad instead to refresh my face. Again it's really gentle and is one of my favourite products as it can also be used as both a toner and a cleanser. When the Michael Todd cleanser runs out I will probably just use the Botanicals Skin Tonic every morning!

Next I spritz a little of the Eden Be Natural Orange Blossom and Witch Hazel Toner* (100ml £12.95) which is refreshing and perfect for balancing oily skin and controlling breakouts thanks to the combination of ingredients: Orange Blossom and Witch Hazel Water with May Chang, Rose Geranium, Tea Tree, Lavender, Sandalwood and Orange essential oils. My skin has been a lot calmer since introducing this into my routine.

After toner I apply the eye cream I'm using at the moment - Michael Todd's Intensive Organic Cream Eye Treatment ($38.00/ approx. £24.50). I'm not a huge fan of the pump applicator on this as sometimes it will work fine and other times it will get stuck, then suddenly spurt out everywhere! Aside from that it's a decent moisturising eye cream. It has ever so slightly reduced my dark circles but I'm still continuing my search for the perfect eye cream!

I then moisturise with Michael Todd's Citrus Cream Moisturiser (full size $29.00/approx. £18.50)(reviewed here), which has just the right balance of being moisturising but still light enough that it's ideal for using underneath make-up. Finally I finish up with the S.W. Basics Peppermint Lip Balm (£4.00) which has just 4 ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Beeswax and Peppermint Essential Oil (all organic). This particular one may not be for everyone but I personally love the tingling lips you're left with from the Peppermint and find it really refreshing in the morning!

So that's my current morning skincare routine! I'm sure a few of these may change at some point so maybe I'll do an updated routine in the future. Do you use any of these products in your daily routine?

  6. Great morning skincare routine and the product features there! Same like the comment above, I too am curious about Michael Todd skincare line after so many big Youtube Vloggers rave about them. They seem to offer amazing deals too. And the facial toners sound heavenly, the essential oils that are packed sound very soothing too, so wonder it's calmed your skin :)
