My Morning Skin-care Routine..

From my previous posts i have been talking to you all about skin-care and troubles with my own skin, my face has been really playing up recently so i am trying to test out different products to see what's working for me and the products that aren't so i can share this with you so you can judge what would be good for your own skin type :)


First off i wake up and usually check all my social networking sites and on here to see what all you lovely followers have written to me, then i head off to the bathroom to brush my teeth and wash my face (this is usually on my day off i use a water based cleanser as i normally use my Lancome cleanser and toner in my bedroom as its quick and easy when im in a rush for work).
I have been using the Una Brennan - Super Facialist Cleanser in Neroli, this product is wonderful at completely cleansing your face and removes all the dirt without completely stripping the skin!





Using my Sarah Chapman - Cleansing Mitts


Completely wet the mitt, i make sure i only ever use warm water, if you use water too hot/cold it can break the cappileries in the face, so using warm water makes sure your skin doesnt ever get the chance to react to the water temperature.


I apply the cleanser to the mitt and rinse a little more water over the top allowing the cleanser to foam a little.


I then in circular motions wash the cleanser over my face and then rinse off :)

So back to my bedroom now, these are the products i keep on my bedside table as i use them at night also, and i said before when im getting ready on a usual day i would clean my face with the products on here!


Of course my little baby would be sleeping on the bed once i get back in the room, i think he sees the bedroom as his once ive left the room.


So at the moment i have been using the Origins - Gin-Zing moisturizer, the scent OH MY GOD, its like Terry's Chocolate Orange, whenever i apply this it instantly makes me want some, which isnt a good thing first thing in the morning haha, im not 100% sure if this is working on me at the moment, as i said earlier my skin has been breaking out alot, but they seem to be around my chin area, which apparently is stress/hormonal acne, and the rest of my face seems clear, so im hoping that once the acne around my chin dies down i will be able to see if this is really working for me (i bloody hope so, cos the smell is just so god damn good)


Next i apply my Ll'occitane - Ultra Riche Eye Cream, a soft balm which i apply around the eye area, simple i guess but i'm trying to look after the skin around my eye to prevent aging skin too early :)


Lastly i apply a small amount of my Laura Mercier - Tarte Au Citron moisturizer to my arms, neck, and deccolatage, the scent of this is beautiful and i often dont feel the need to apply perfume once ive used this product as the scent is strong but not over-powering and lovely for the summertime :)

So that is my current skin-care routine, i would love you all to share your own products/routines with me as i would love to hear about the products that are working for you :)

For any of those wanting to speak to me away from my blogger, my email is 3wildxx@gmail.com i would love to get in contact with some of you as you dont get to speak to each other properly through blogger :)

Dont forget to follow :)

Lots of love, Frankie xXx

  4. The mitts seriously are amazing, they have two sides one is a reallyyyyy gentle side like a really soft flannel and the other side has more of an exfoliating feel to it, you can definitely tell the difference between the two, for everyday i use the soft side and for a deeper clean i use the more abrasive side, the soft side is definitely gentle enough to use twice a day :) Hope this helps xxx
