Morning Skincare Routine



My morning skincare routine is very basic and lacking a toner as I've been trying to find the right one to fill that gap for a while now and no success. First of all I use the Origins Zero Oil Deep Pore Cleanser (£18), this cleanser has a fresh smell which wakes you up in the morning. It slightly foams which gives you a really clean feeling and I know..skincare goddess, Caroline Hirons says to stay away from foaming cleansers but with Origins being such a naturally driven brand I thought this would be an okay exception. I wet a muslin cloth with warm water and gently buff it off, a bit of exfoliation is always good.

After using my cleanser, I would then ideally use a toner but I'm lacking in that department. Hydraluron (£24.99) then steps in, this is a much loved product by many bloggers. When I first read others reviews about Hydraluron I thought it wouldn't be for me as I have such oily skin but over winter my skin has become dehydrated and sometimes I get dry patches across my cheeks. Hydraluron has a light gel like textures that glides over the skin easily. I bought this when it had a third off which I really recommend or buy it when there is a three for two.

I use yet another Origins product in the form of the GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser (£23) which is a light weight gel like cream which makes you feel like an orange, such an amazing smell. This keeps my face hydrated throughout the day and it makes a great base for my make up. 

Finally a coat of Burts Bees Replenishing Lip Balm (£3.69) on the lips for a splash of colour from the pomegranite oil in it and I'm ready for whatever the day has planned for me.

For reference, I have oily/combination skin where I have an extremely oily forehead and chin while I get dry patches across my cheeks sometimes. I am also very blemish prone....everywhere unfortunately!

Any recommendations to add to my skincare routine?
