With my skincare routine I liked to use this as an opportunity to try and test out some of my samples. It helps feed my addiction of trying out new products whilst also using up a lot of samples which get built up over time. 

Now this regime is after I have take most of my make-up with a face wipe. I have just started getting into the swing of using a separate cleanser to actually let it clean my skin apposed to just being used as a make-up remover. I do a little confession that I am a little lazy especially in the evening so all of these products are usually next to my bed and can be down before I snuggle down. 

Eye Make Up Remover - Like I said I have normally taken most of my make-up off but I usually get some left over mascara or eyelash glue if I have been wearing falseys. I have to soak a cotton wool pad on each eye for it to clear completely. 

Cleanser - This cream cleanser is perfect for my skin whilst the seasons are changing and my face is trying to strengthen up against the harsh winds and cold mornings. I tend to get quite sore skin in the winter so preparing myself for it is key. 

Toner - Because I use a cream cleanser I need a toner which will help lift and remove and excess product which has been left on my skin. This cucumber water is light and refreshing and doesn't stick onto my skin and I have the clean feeling so I am able to moisturise my face.

Moisturiser - This Lancome one was one of my favourite because it was thick enough to nourish my skin enough over night but not too heavy that is clogs my pores. The only thing that I didn't particularly like about this was the smell because it is very perfumed and I don't particularly like that. 

Eye Cream - This is a treat, I wish I could afford the full size because I feel when I wake after putting this on my eyes feel refreshed and I look like a spring chicken (even though I'm not that old). The product is a thick consistency and you only need a tiny amount so a little goes a long way, which makes me happy because this little sample pot is lasting longer. Woop!

Lip Balm - It is nice and soothing and stays on your lips for ages which is why it is perfect for the night or during the cold winter days. I love the smell and the texture of it but it still doesn't beat my favourite one.

Have you changed your skincare routine for the winter?

    1. I think they have discontinued it because it is such a shame as it is a really soft and gentle formula as I can find some toners to be quite harsh. :)
