Updated Skin Care Essentials ♡

DSC_0540_FotorrrI’ve been very busy with University work, which means there is a good amount of stressors in my life, which in turn means my skin is not coping well! My skin isn’t so sensitive but during times of stress the odd few spots appear here and there and my skin doesn’t look its best so i’ve been needing these products and each one is helping my skin look better.

Good Things Miracle Mattifier Lotion

I’ve been using this Good Things moisturiser every morning, it’s good for oily skin as it acts a mattifier, it makes my complexion more even. Although it does mattify the skin it doesn’t leave it dry and the moisture last throughout the day.

Eau Roma Toner Water – LUSH


I love this product, it contains Lavender and Rose water which soothe the skin so much. I love this for when my skin is feeling dry or irritable. A few sprays of this and my skin feels much better, it’s handy to keep around . I use this after cleansing in the morning and night and if you’re using a strong cleanser it adds some moisture back to the face.

REN Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser
I use this cleanser almost every day, it’s good at removing every last bit of makeup on your face. I use the Garnier Micellar water before this yet there is still makeup i’ve missed and this product gets rid of that. It leaves my skin feeling clean without feeling stripped, the act of using a hot cloth cleanser is so relaxing too.

REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial

DSC_0551_FotorThis product is perfect for very bad skin days, I put it on before bed and I wake up with better feeling skin. It might not be the most comfortable product as it’s quite sticky and makes my skin feel a bit heavy but it works into the skin and does work. I don’t use it often but it is handy for some days!

Tea Tree Oil 


Last but not least is tea tree oil, it’s probably the only skin care product I would keep if I had to only keep one. It has so many skin benefits, especially for acne sufferers as it has anti bacterial properties. I add a drop of this to my night cream and it may sound crazy but I do wake up feeling like my skin is glowing. I would highly recommend trying skin care products with tea tree oil!

Thank you for reading, let me know if you love any of these products, or what your favourite skin care product is?

On another note, my friend and I are holding a Happiness Challenge on Twitter and Instagram next week, we were inspired by International Happiness Day and would like as many people to take part. (it’s an excuse to have cute stuff to post on instagram and twitter for a week if that entices you)


Hope you have a good day!
