Updated Skincare Routine

updated skincare routine

When it comes to my skincare routine, I tend to stick to the products I know deliver results. After battling with red and bumpy skin at the beginning of 2014 I refrain from mixing things up too much in fear that the problem areas will resurface. Instead it’s a routine filled with tried and tested products that help keep my skin clear, calm and *mostly* blemish free.

That being said – your skin doesn’t stay the same throughout the seasons. It can become dry, agitated or even sensitive, adapting to these changes is vital if you want to retain your happy complexion. In situations like these I switch up a couple of select products, no need for an entirely new routine. Instead find where there pitfalls are and adjust accordingly.

My first problem came in the form of dry skin. I found throughout Winter, areas around my nose and forehead were becoming increasingly dry causing my foundation to look patchy. My morning moisturise just wasn’t holding up so I gave the Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream* a whirl. Promising immediate nourishment and hydration for all skin types this sinks in quickly without leaving a greasy film behind yet manages to banish those dry areas. After a mere two days I could already see a great difference.

Secondly, a new cleanser. Not added due to a void in my skincare routine unless you can count my Aurelia one running out I decided to finally give this cult product a try. The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel contains a mixture of natural ingredients to cleanse the skin whilst melting away any remaining makeup left on my face. I use this as a second cleanser and it’s blended seamlessly into my routine leaving my skin feeling refreshed after cleansing.

  • Ohh I have not tried a Cleansing Gel before~ ^ ^
    I may have to see how they work with my skin! ^ – ^


    • I’ve found it works great with my sensitive skin and doesn’t leave it dry or irritated xx

  • I’d love to try this cleansing gel, I have really problematic skin so it might be worth a try :)

  • I really need to change my skincare routine up! I’ve been using the same products for months on end and while I love them it’s definitely getting a little boring now. I can’t even remember the last time I used a face mask, it’s shocking! I won’t be stopping using the Oskia cleanser anytime soon though, love that stuff. I’d love to try more Trilogy skincare, what I have I love but I know they do some really great products x

    • :O who are you?! Ahaha! Go put on a mask stat :P When there are products you love it’s hard to let them go – Trilogy do some great sets that are fab if you want to try a few bits out :) xx

  • I’ve been reading a lot of raving reviews about Oskia… I should really try to check out the brand some time.

  • The cream does sound amazing at the moment I am battling with bad dry skin and no matter what face mask or cream I am using it seems to soak through and appear again which is so annoying when it comes to applying my foundation xox


    • I was struggling with the same problem but after using this moisturiser it’s seemed to have knocked everything back into a more normal skin type :) xx

  • I’ve been meaning to try this for a while but need to finish my Clinique take the day off balm first which i also like


  • I’m new to both products! I don’t tend to suffer noticeable changes from oily to dry skin, it mostly becomes normal! But we never know so it’s always helpful to have a quick rescue product :) xx
