MY CURRENT NATURAL SKINCARE ROUTINEHaven't done a post in a while. I suddenly felt really motivated to do some artwork and decided to make the most of it. Luckily I think the motivation is here to stay so I will try and balance out my time a bit better so I can do more blog posts. Thought i'd get back into the swing of things by doing a simple skincare routine post. All products have been bought by myself.
I've been using Lavera's organic lemon balm and mallow cleansing gel each morning along with Liz Earle's pure muslin cloths to wash the product off. Every Sunday however I substitute the cleansing gel for Burt's Bees 100% natural peach and willowbark deep pore scrub. This scrub is amazing! Smells great and makes my skin feel amazing. I have very dry, sensitive skin that reacts badly to a lot of products but I have had absolutely no problems with this one. I wouldn't use it more then once a week though as it could graze the skin slightly if overused.
I love Botanics products! I have used them for years but have recently stopped as I've been converting to natural products. When I found out they did a 100% organic toner I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! The spritz bottle makes it really easy to apply without wasting the product. I use a cotton wool ball immediately after applying the product to gently smooth it over the face and neck and remove any excess. I find if I don't do this it can start to peel off when applying makeup.
As winter is coming and my skin has already started to feel dry, I am using Lavera's organic shea butter and almond all-round cream. It is a very thick cream so not great for all year round but fantastic for the Autumn/winter months if you are prone to dry patches like myself. You get a lot of product for your money and I can not recommend it enough! I've also been using Burt's Bees Radiance eye cream. Although this is a little expensive it is a fantastic eye cream. I've had mine for over a year and still have plenty left. You need such a small amount and a little goes a long way. I've used cheaper eye creams in the past but needed a lot more product per application so in the long run they were more expensive.
Lastly I coat my lips with Burt's Bees natural beeswax lip balm. This is one of my favorite products of all time. It can feel a little tingly when first applied but you soon get used to it with regular use. It moisturizes dry lips in no time and the tin lasts ages.
