My daily face routine is four steps that take about one minute all up: cleanser, moisturiser, BB cream (used to be foundation, but I'm converted as you'll see in the video below!), and any other makeup (concealer, eyeliner and eyeshadow are for days I have extra motivation). Done.
In all honesty, I wouldn't use anything if it wasn't for the fact that my skin is as dry as a reptile's and needs a lot of help!
Part of the simplicity is also about using accessible products - I won't make a special trip for skin care products, so finding things I like on the supermarket shelves is ideal. Oh, and inexpensive is another must - I need to use bucketloads of moisturiser, but I don't want to take out a second mortgage to do it. I did dabble with more expensive products in my higher-earning days, but soon stopped when I realised they're not actually better than the supermarket brands.
To me, it's about having a few products that work really well, keeping it simple, and getting out of the bathroom.
And now, a vlog. Yes, I braved a video post even though I hate being on video. And please don't mind my daughter still being in her pyjamas, hair everywhere, and throwing a little tanty... (Oh, and my skin care routine is quick - but videoing with a young child on my lap is not. Although she is rather entertaining.)
Here are the products I use:
Simple moisturiser and cleanser
Garnier BB cream (technical name: Miracle Skin Perfector)
Garnier roll-on anti-dark circles
Body Shop honey and oat scrub
I've also been given samples of a few other Garnier products and they seem really good, so if you don't have time to scour the shelves they'd be a good place to start.
Win one of 10 Garnier BB miracle skin perfector packs!
This cream hydrates, has SPF protection, evens skin tone, corrects blemishes and 'boosts radiance'. It's definitely worth a try - and you could win one of 10 packs (which will have both the light and medium toned creams) I have to give away, just by commenting below.
