Firstly I’d like to thank Alex for letting me post on her little piece of the internet. I hope she is having fun away on her travels!
Today I’m showing you my current skincare favourites and how I use them in my morning and night time regime.

These are my staple skincare items that I use every morning and night to ensure fresh skin when I wake up to go out and clean skin when I go to bed.

The Body Shop – Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash
This face wash is perfect for my combination to oily skin as it is very gentle but also perfectly cleansing. This gives me a lovely deep clean which doesn’t leave my skin too dry! I’m on my second tube and would definitely go back again for more when I finish this one.

Crystal Clear – Revitalising Toner
I bought this on a whim as I wanted a new toner but I’ve found this has fitted perfectly in my routine. It is very light and refreshing and I enjoy spritzing my face with it in between washing my face and moisturising. I would say it adds a bit of moisture back into my skin which is great after cleansing.
Good Things – Miracle Mattifier Moisturiser
This is my go-to moisturiser. I tried this and loved it but then wanted to try Origins Ginzing moisturiser. I realised that was too light for my skin and so went back to this beauty. It smells very fruity, is a great thick creamy consistency that spreads perfectly and sinks into my skin with ease. 
Origins – GinZing Eye Cream
The last part of my daytime and night time routine is this luxurious eye cream. I love how delicate and smooth this eye cream is which means you only need to use a few dots underneath each eye. It brightens your skin and makes your eyes look awake!

These few skincare pieces are additions to the usual regime that I use either when I want to tackle a problem, when I want to change it up or to add a bit of pampering to my routine.
The Body Shop – Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil
This is part of my night time regime and is my holy grail. I use this after toner but before moisturising to give my skin something extra to sink in overnight. This serum-in-oil does not leave you looking like an oily mess in the morning but rather the complete opposite. You wake up with plump skin that has benefited from the extra moisture. I love it.

Lush – Grease Lightening Spot Treatment
Although not the strongest spot treatment on the market this is the most organic in terms of ingredients which makes this a great choice. For tackling spots I find it is great to soothe them and reduce the size when putting this on overnight.
Origins – Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask
I’ve only just discovered this after loving Origin’s Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask. This is specifically designed to soothe and cleanse the skin if you’re having a bad skin day. With some pretty nifty ingredients it is great to use when you feel like your face is riddled with spots!

Avon Clearskin – Pore Penetrating Invigorating Scrub
I bought this as I needed a new scrub in my life. This includes menthol which feels so crazy when you put it on your face; it almost turns my face cold! I can only assume this is good and that it is getting right into my pores! Overall I find it to be a nice scrub that I can use a few times a week.

If you have combination to oily skin I’d definitely recommend these items as they work for me!
