My skincare routine has really simplified itself down in the last few months. This is what I do in the morning (as you can see by the above photo of me looking slightly worse for wear with mascara under my eye...).
I started using Philosophy's microdelivery exfoliating wash over Easter when my annoying combination skin face was having one of it's flare ups that happen every now and again. It buffered my skin beautifully, and I've used it every morning since. The cleanser, purity I started using with my clarisonic. I didn't get on well at all with the clarisonic but I did with the cleanser.
Both products are extremely light and you only need to use the slightest amount (in fact the picture above, which is the purity cleanser, is probably too much.)
A combination of using both of the products in my morning routine leaves my skin soft and ready for make-up (i'll let you in on a secret.. I don't moisturise everyday!) without any facial redness which is something I've always struggled with.
They are slightly pricy, the microdelivery exfoliating wash is £22 for 240ml in boots, and the purity cleanser £17.50 for 236ml. They last forever though, as you use the slighest amount at a time.
