My Current Skincare Routine // 2012

I haven't always been a big skincare fanatic and I still have days where I just forget it all. One of my non new years resolutions was to improve my skincare and to keep to it. So far I'm doing much better at it and I've noticed a big difference already in my skin. Over the last few months I've really changed my routine and I love it. At the moment I'm testing out one more product that if any good will be added. However these are my most used products in my skincare 'routine'.
Recently, with the No7 vouchers I picked up the Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes and I love them. I've reviewed them here. Lots of people hate using wipes, but when I'm tired I'm not scrubbing my face for 5 minutes, I'm getting into bed. They get every little bit of makeup off. 
Next we have the Off your face Cleansing Cloths by Soap & Glory, again these are great, currently on 3 for 2 in Boots, a little pricey normally around £5 a pack, but I like them. I felt they helped my pores. If I'm out of both of these I'll go back to Johnson's, until the offers and vouchers come back. However I have back ups at the moment. I recommend both.
My routine used to be 90% Lush, it still contains Lush, but I'm picking other cleansers over Lush. Who would of thought it eyy? The Clarity face wash from Soap and Glory is amazing. My skin feels so smooth after using it. I was worried it would break me out being so sensitive. It didn't. I've reviewed it here. I'll use this most days. I'm naughty and skip some days.
Ocean Salt isn't really a cleanser, it's a facial scrub, however I'll use this rather than an actual cleanser. It gets rid of all my dry skin and people compliment me when I've used this. It gives life and glow back into my skin. I've used this for years. I'll use this a couple times a week. 
Aqua Marina, I used to use this all the time, I still do in and out, but more of a face mask. It keeps longer than the actual face masks Lush do. It helps with my redness. I'll use this every so often.
I'm yet to review this product, believe me I will! I love it, if you have dry skin you need this. Apply, wait for 10 minutes and rinse off. Your skin will feel amazing. My skin had never felt so good. I'm debating to use this as an every day cleanser. It's bloody amazing!! I use this twice a week.
I love Grease Lightning, most will know I can't rave enough about it, if I get a spot I'll apply this and it'll be gone the next day. If it's a beast of a spot, then after a couple days the spots vanished. It really does help with spots. I use this when I feel a spot coming or when ones erupted.
Eau Roma Water, I've used this toner for years, it's so refreshing and clean. You have to try this if you have dry skin. I love it so much. I'll spray it on my face in hot weather to cool myself down outside. I tone most days. Spray onto cotton pads and wipe over face.
Finding the best moisturiser is important, now I'm not entirely fussed over having day and night creams, I survive with just using one. However of late I've started to. Dream cream is really for your body, however I use it on my face, because it's so gentle and light. It's great. I've used this for a couple of years now.
Burt's Bees Night Cream* is brilliant, my skin feels really hydrated in the morning. It's worth checking out the small kits they do, to try out the fab skin care range from them!
Burt's Bee's eye cream*, is the next best eye cream I've used since Clinque's. I love this, especially the applicator, it's like a pencil. Squeeze a little amount out and pat around eyes. Eye creams are important to me, my eye's get very tired and people always comment. This stuff saves me.
No7 Day and Night cream from the Beautiful Skin range, these have got to be my favourite moisturisers around, I adore them and when the vouchers come back I'll purchase them, right now these little tubes are still going. My skin feels great after using them.

What's your skin care routine like, can always leave your link for my to read.
