Hey everyone! Today I'll be sharing my skincare routine, which is the second topic for the 2014 Blogger Challenge. I don't really have a strict skincare routine. I'm yet to find my holy grail products that does wonders to my skin. If I run out of a certain product, I'd usually just purchase something else. So, my skincare routine changes quite frequently. Anyhow, this is my current skincare routine and products that I've been using.
♥Wakey wakey! MORNING TIME♥

First thing I do after I've brushed my teeth, is splash some cold water on my face. This is not only going to wake me right up but also helps with detoxified my skin. After that, I use the foaming scrub to exfoliate my skin. Exfoliating helps with getting rid of all the dead skin cells. I like this product because the micro beads helps massage my face and regulate blood circulation. It has a slight tingling cool feeling which I like and makes me think that the product is working on my skin. Then, I dry my face and put on the serum. Not many people do this step, especially if you're young. It doesn't hurt to start early. Serum has so many benefits such as, restoring moisture and tightening up your pores. After applying the serum, it's time to moisturise! I switch between the Clinique and Aveeno moisturiser, depending what i'm doing that day. The Clinique moisturiser doesn't have any SPF in it, so if I'm going to be outdoor for majority of the day, I'd use the Aveeno daily moisturiser.
After a day of wearing makeup [if i'm wearing makeup on the day], I will first use a facial wipes. This will help get rid of the oil, dirt and makeup off my face, before I give my face a good clean.
I'd use my Olay Regenerist Cleansing System 2-3 times a week [see my review HERE], when I'm in the shower. It's great to completely cleanse my face. On those days that I don't use the cleansing system, I'd just use the Olay cream cleanser on its own.

For the night time, I use the serum again then I put the Bioderma on a cotton pad and swipe it all over onto my face. I've only recently bought this and I totally understand why people raved on and on about this baby. You will be surprise to see what is still left on my skin after I've cleanse my face [two thumbs up for this miracle product]! I then use the Neutrogena eye makeup remove which does an amazing job with removing my waterproof mascara. After all that is done, I apply the Nivea night cream onto my skin. This stuff smells really nice and keep my face moisturized while I sleep like a
sleeping beauty pig. Last but not least, I use an eye cream to treat my designer bags A.K.A my panda eyes.
As for my body, I swear by the Redwin Sorbolene Moisturiser. I've use this ever since I was in primary school. It does an amazing job at keeping my skin hydrated and silky smooth. This product is great for people that have sensitive skin and it is fragrance free as well. So, if i'm going out somewhere and I want to smell extra appealing, I slap on the Body Shop Mango body butter onto my body. It smells so divine! I love mango O so much and I like to smell like it too. It's the perfect scent for this summer.
Once a week, I like to pamper myself. One of the things I do is put a face mask on while relaxing. Sheet masks are super convenient and is mess free. I've been loving the Skinvitals H-Revive Mask. After using it, I've noticed that my skin is super hydrated and leave my skin looking glowy. That, I like.☺
Let me know what your holy grail skincare products are. I'd love to know and try out new products!
