Skincare Routine

Hello my loves,

Nearly a year ago now i blogged about my current skin care routine that consisted mainly of Liz Earle products. I have since mixed it up a little bit and even though i am still a fan of the Liz Earle skincare i am currently using some different products that i wanted to share with you.
♥ Cleanser - Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (Of Course!) ♥
Sticking to an old favourite and something i have been using for around 2 and a half years and gone through countless bottles of is the Liz Earle cleanse and polish. This stuff is amazing and i did a review of it here. I use this first and it removes most of my make up and leaves my skin feeling thoroughly cleansed and soft. I use it with a product that i talk a bit more about below!
♥ Toner - Bioderma Sensibo H20 Make Up Remover ♥
My current toner of choice is the Bioderma Make up remover that i use as a toner and to remove any excess make up especially heavy eye make up that may have been missed by my cleanse and polish. I have read so many rave reviews of the Bioderma so i picked mine up from ebay for around £12 for a huge 500ml bottle. So far i am absolutely loving it and will 100% be repurchasing it. Its also fragrance free which i really do like. 
♥ Moisturiser - Liz Earle Light Moisturiser ♥
Again the same as before my moisturiser of choice is the Liz Earle light moisturiser for combination/oily skin which is the category my skin type fits into. It is light and moisturising without leaving a greasy or oily residue on my skin. However, I have recently been using a sample of the Benefit moisturiser and i must say i am really enjoying using it so this may be a next purchase.
♥ Exfoliator - Liz Earle Gentle Exfoliator ♥
I am using the Liz Earle gentle exfoliator as it is one that i can use everyday as it isnt too harsh on my skin. It is similar to the cleanse and polish and thick in consistency like that is however it has gentle exfoliating grains in it. I do love a good face scrub, it really is one of my favourite parts of my skin care routine and i have been intrigued by the Benefit facial exfoliator that i am currently using a small sample of and really enjoying. 
♥ Eye products ♥
♥ Liz Earle Daily Eye Cream/Liz Earle Soothing Eyebright 
I am currently using two eye products, a eye cream which i have reviewed before here and a lotion. I use the Liz Earle Eye Cream twice a day, both morning and night. It has light reflecting properties that make me look so much more awake and give my skin a bit of a glow. The eye lotion is so gentle and soothing, I use this once a day on an evening when i have cleansed and toned my face, before applying moisturiser. 
♥ Other products ♥
♥ Caudalie Vinosource SOS Serum ♥
I have recently been using the Caudalie Vinosource SOS Serum sample that i received in my glossybox before applying my moisturiser as it suggests, it does leave my skin feeling quite smooth but i am unsure i can really notice any other benefits so i definitely wont be investing in a full size tube. 
♥ Caudalie Beauty Elixir ♥ 
The Caudalie beauty elixir is a product i purchased after reading so so many rave reviews on many beauty blogs so i picked up the small 30ml bottle from HQ Hair. I must be totally honest and say i see no benefits to this whatsoever and i cant really see any difference this is making to my skin at all. I apply before i apply my moisturiser so i may try applying after applying my make up like a fix plus kind of product. I personally dont see the hype at all, is that just me?
♥ Rio Sonicleanse ♥
I have been using the Rio Sonicleanse* now for a couple of months now. I use it on a night through the week and on a morning and night on weekends simply because i have more time. It is a clarisonic-type product but for a fraction of the price and this retails for £50 which i think is amazing. The head pulses at 10,000 times per minute and even though this is less than a clarisonic i feel this efficient for my own needs. It leaves my skin feeling exceptionally clean and looking refreshed. It has two settings, low and high. I generally use it on high but around my eye area i use low as i find my skin to be more sensitive here. It beeps after 20 seconds so you know when to move to a different section of your face but then will turn off after a minute which usually results in me having to turn it back on as i like a much deeper cleanse. Some people mention that they have a small break out on their skin when first using a product like this but i must say this never happened with me when i started using the Sonicleanse. It leaves my skin feeling much smoother and clearer and i can definitely tell the difference between the deep scrub this gives compared to using a cleanser on its own. I pair this with my Liz Earle cleanse and polish. I gently dampen my face and add a dollop of the cleanse and polish to my chin, nose, forehead and cheeks and cleanse one area at a time. I must say i first used this before taking my make up off and definitely didnt find this as effective as when i take my make up off before, usually with the Bioderma. It also waterproof so can be used in the shower and rechargeable, although i have only had to recharge it once overnight and it has still lasted!
These are the skincare products i am using and currently loving, but i must add a sidenote as what might work for me may not work for you.  I am very particular with skincare and research a lot on products before purchasing as i want to get it right and dont want to be disapointed. So these are the products that are currently working for me and that i enjoy using.
