The Skincare Edit



My skincare game is back to where it used to be and I've been loving every sudsy minute of it. It's so easy for me to get into a skincare rut so I've been trying to rotate products in and out that I know work well with my skin. 

I can't go without my Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm no matter what condition my skin seems to be in. It's the perfect cleanser to remove everything off my skin. Scent free and great with a little water added to it before rinsing off, I won't be giving this up any time soon. 

I always like to follow up the cleansing balm with another cleanser to make sure every last bit of makeup and grim is off my face. Lately I've been using the REN Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk as my skin has been a little sensitive with the change of weather. It's gentle on the skin while still feeling like it's cleaning. I could live without the scent, but it isn't unbearable.

After the double cleanse it's toner time. Nothing beats the Body Shop's Vitamin E Hydrating Toner. I've tried a variety of different toners but none are as gentle and effective as this one. If I'm feeling fancy I'll use a serum next. The Body Shop's Vitamin C Facial Radiance Capsules are something I use on very rare occasions as it's not the cheapest of products without a discount. They make my skin feel silky smooth and I always feel cool using them. The little pod is just enough product to cover all the necessary parts of my face. 

Moisturizer is next and is one of the most switched out steps of my skincare routine. There are a lot of different moisturizers I love, the Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer being one of the first I discovered. It's incredibly light and provides a nice helping of hydration without being to thick or taking forever to sink into the skin.

In the evenings I slather on Origins Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I'm obsessed with this stuff. It provides an insane amount of moisture and I wake up with my skin feeling refreshed and plump. Definitely a must try if you haven't yet!

What's your skincare routine?

xoxo Kayla

  1. Those little pods look so interesting - I'll have to check them out next time I go to The Body Shop. And I'm glad to hear you love the Origins mask too - it's been a lifesaver for me while I've had a cold!

  3. I am completely obsessed with the Origins mask too, it's such a godsend when I have dry skin! I'll have to check out the other products you mentioned, I'm a big fan of the Body Shop and I feel as though I haven't been keeping up with their new releases xx
