I mentioned last week that I was lucky enough to get lots of lovely beauty gifts for Christmas. One of the sets I got was the Clinique Christmas Essentials, something I was very excited to try as I had never used Clinique products before.
I must admit, I haven’t really used the makeup items in the set yet, other than the Pout Perfecting Balm. I have, however, been using the Pep-Start 2 in 1 Exfoliating Cleanser, Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate and Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturiserand Eye Cream as my new daily skincare regime.
I have a little confession to make, before now I haven’t really used skincare products in the morning – I know, I know, I am such a bad beauty blogger. I just never prioritised skincare when I got up, but that has all changed now.
Before I even think about reaching for my makeup, I head to the bathroom and use the 2 in 1 exfoliator and cleanser to ensure my skin is completely clean and clear.
I grab the Moisture Surge Concentrate and apply a little over my T-Zone, where my skin gets dry the most.
I have heard amazing things about the moisture surge moisturiser and I think I will be purchasing that soon. For now, I smooth on the HydroBlur moisturiser, which is honestly one of the silkiest, softest creams I have ever used and so good at smoothing out my skin and providing a fresh base.
I then finish off with a tiny amount of the eye cream, which I dab under my eyes with my index finger. My eyes are always so tired, with dark circles underneath, and it’s nice to give them a bit of extra TLC. I will need to start using more products on them as I am fast approaching my thirties now (argh).
One of my aims for this month is to wake up a little earlier so that I can do this and then sit and relax for a little while, letting the products sink in a bit, as currently I am rushing onto my makeup straight after this and I don’t think I am leaving enough time for them to work their magic!
Do you have a morning skincare regime? Are there any miracle products you think I should be trying?
