A/W Morning Skincare Routine

Hello my lovelies,

So a little while ago I did my A/W Evening Skincare Routine, see here and I realised I didn’t post my morning skincare routine. There isn’t much too my morning routine, I like to keep it simple and use as few products as possible as 9 times out of 10 I will be applying makeup and I don’t want my skin to feel heavy.

I like to stick to what I know and love so I don’t change my skincare up too often. If my skin is in good condition then I stick to the same products. I am always worried about trying new things and then I explode with a load of spots – what a lovely thought!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water – See Here

This is my first step in the morning to remove any dirt from over night and the sleep from my eyes. I like to feel fresh and clean especially when I know I am going to be applying make up. I literally love this product so much I go through so many bottles and it does the job without my skin feeling dry and it leaves me feeling more awake and ready to face the day.

Liz Earle Eyebright, Soothing Eye Lotion – See Here

This is the next step in my routine to put some eye lotion over my eyes. Now I know most people would incorporate this in their evening routine but I feel as though this reduces my puffy eyes. I used to be a morning person, but now every second of extra sleep counts in the morning so I like to feel refreshed. This is perfect for that, one of the main ingredients in this product is aloe vera which acts as a moisturizer and aids with reducing redness. It reduces my puffy eyes in the morning which is most definitely needed. It smells gorgeous too which is a major plus!

Liz Earle – Skin Repair Moisturizer See Here

This is last step in my simple morning routine which I think is the most important step. I really notice the difference if I forget to moisturize in the morning. My skin feels so soft after using this and is a great base for make up. I always use a primer for my make up and I think without using this my primers would not be as effective. When I’m having a no make up day (best kind of day) my skin lasts all day feeling smooth and hydrated. I am on my second tub of this and I simply don’t think anything else will compete. My love of Liz Earle will never leave.

That is my nice and easy morning skincare routine for the colder months. It literally takes me less than 5 minutes which is a god send when I want a little more sleep in the cold dark mornings that the UK have.

Let me know what products are in your skincare routine & whether you have tried any of the products I have mentioned

  1. So with you with sticking to the same products. I had brought 3 tubs of my simple exfoliating face wash and loved it and my skin was so clear, I stupidly make the mistake of “switching up” my face wash and for the past like 3/4 weeks my skin has been horrendous so I quickly got my old fav and I’ve been using that for the past week and my skin is starting to clear again but never will I switch up unless I have to! Bad mistake made by me there 🙈🙈

  2. Loved this post! I’ve tried using the micellar water before and loved it, but accidentally left it at home over Christmas! I tend to use Clinique’s anti-blemish solutions clarifying lotion, No7’s Redness-relief Balm, and No7’s beautiful skin Day Cream for Normal/Dry skin. But I’ll be keeping an eye out for your products!

  3. I love that you specified that this is your routine for the colder months! Not everyone does, but most do see a major shift in skin’s health from season to season. .

  5. I love reading people’s skincare routines! Tempted to write mine up soon. 🙂
    I’ve recently gone back to using the Garnier micellar water again and whilst I do like it, I don’t love it as much as the Simple cleansing water. I have yet to try Liz Earle but no idea when as I just recently spent money on new products to try out! 😅

    1. I love hearing about it too actually.
      I don’t think I will replace my garnier micellar water any time soon I love it too much. What!? You need to try it such an amazing brand. I can’t fault it!xo
