Morning skincare routine - January 2015

Back in August, I went through my morning skincare routine, but given it’s been a fair few months since that post, I thought it high time to give a little update. You’ll notice that my summer skincare regimen is a lot lighter on with products than in winter. I find that using too many products in warmer weather makes makeup sit badly and not stay as long.

Back in winter, I was all about the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. Since that ran out, I’ve been favouring this lighter gel that hydrates the skin beautifully.

I’m fastidious about protecting the skin year round, but no time more so than in high summer. I chose this sunscreen because of its long staying power and while it is a little greasy, it protects well so I don’t mind.

I got this product as a sample in the Mecca Cosmetica Beauty Loop box and have been really enjoying it. Although my skin tends towards the greasier side of things, I can’t go without moisturiser. My makeup always looks a bit patchy without it. I’m still on the hunt for a good daytime moisturiser so if you have any suggestions, please do let me know!

I’ve left out serum here because on days where I wear makeup, it can feel a little much. I do, however, sometimes use some more products, but more on that in a few days time…

What is your morning skincare routine like?
