I know that as soon as I type this I'm going to jinx myself but over the past few weeks my skin has been looking incredible! I haven't really changed anything lifestyle-wise so I'm putting it down to my new, religious skincare routine. I always take care of my skin but recently I've been putting a lot more focus into specific concerns and tailoring my routine daily rather than weekly. I'm so happy with the products I've been using and most of them are fairly new to me so of course, I wanted to share them with you!

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cleansing Gel* | I'm definitely a fan of oil-based cleansers but sometimes you need something lighter for every day and this has been perfect! It's a really light refreshing gel that leaves my skin feeling properly cleansed without any sort of dry/tight feeling afterwards. I actually find it to be really hydrating and softening which is quite rare for a gel. If you prefer a more 'foaming' cleanser than you definitely need to check this out! 

Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish* | Ever since I started incorporating this into my routine I've noticed such a big difference in the texture of my skin. I think that's my biggest skincare pet peeve as I absolutely hate the look of dry, bumpy patches under my foundation but this has buffed my skin to perfection! It has a lovely herbal scent and the sugar particles are just the right size to gently exfoliate without being harsh or cause irritation. Just use it once or twice a week for a face like a baby's bum! 

Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist | Because my skin has been so well behaved recently I find that I don't always have to use a toner but when I do this is the one I've been loving! I don't like anything greasy, especially when I'm layering products so this is perfect as it's super light and adds that extra moisture and plump effect. Plus it smells lush! 

Emma Hardie Midas Touch Serum* | I was so surprised when the gorgeous Charlotte sent me this serum and I'm so grateful because my skin has been absolutely loving it! Firstly I think the packaging and dispenser are really cool but the serum itself is so moisturising and makes your skin look like you've been drinking 2L of water a day! If dehydration/dullness is your concern then I highly recommend trying this! 

Nivea Daily Essentials 24H Moisture + Express Primer Gel Cream* | I usually love Nivea products and this is no exception. I've realised that I don't like a super-rich (almost clogging) moisturiser so this ticks all of the boxes for me! It has a gorgeous silky texture, it absorbs in seconds and my makeup applies beautifully over top. This one is great for those with a normal/combination skin but there's also a dry skin version so everyone is covered! It's also currently on offer for £2.55 in Superdrug! Yasss!!

Have you tried any of these products recently?
