Morning Skincare Routine


My current morning skincare routine is all about putting some life back into this tired post-Winter face. Here's what I've been reaching for to boost radiance and hydration levels...

The first step in my routine is Elemental Herbology Vital Cleanse, with brightening Manuka honey, vitamin C and Papaya. This zingy gel to cream cleanser smells deliciously fresh and gives my face a much needed wake up call.

I love a morning spritz, currently courtesy of Sond Hydrating Face Spray, best applied from palms as it's quite full on (could just be my bottle). Sond is a new mostly natural skincare line aimed at 35+ sensitive skin. Based on collagen and hydration-boosting, anti-inflammatory silica, it's quickly become my new go-to on slightly fragile skin days. My favourite is the Firm & Smooth Revitalising Face Serum, which I find both soothing and softening. 

Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream feels instantly refreshing and helps my eyes look more rested. On initial application it gently plumps up fine lines, temporarily of course, but every little helps! {clinique.co.uk}

Finally, Pestle & Mortar Hydrate moisturiser has been adding a comforting layer of moisture as the final step in my routine. This lightweight lotion instantly hydrates, right where it's needed, no hanging around for it to sink in. I don't doubt that it would be a match made in heaven used with the Hyaluronic Serum featured in my Best of Beauty 2015, but that stuff is like gold dust and forever sold out when I try to purchase. I've only just noticed that these products are made in Dublin... I may have to jump on a train to stock up! *edit* The Serum is now in stock again - I've just repurchased here, whoop!
