I love cream, oils, serums... anything that I can put on my face and that it's meant to help my skin glow and look healthy. 

Over the years I have tried every product imaginable and from every single brand - some have worked, some haven't and some have made my skin break out like crazy. However, the one thing I am quite rubbish at is consistency. I love new shiny bottles with cute labels on them. Whenever a product runs out I am running to buy the newest, shiniest replacement I can find. Therefore, I never really had a strict "skincare routine" as it was constantly changing and I never really knew what worked or didn't work.

For the past 6 months or so, I have been pretty consistent with the little few products that I use and my skin has never been better. 

And I mean it, never. 

It is soft, clear, and I barely get any spots (even if I exercise with make up on!). It is a miracle. And the best thing is, the products I use are all very affordable and accessible! 

1. The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2%Solution

I originally got this to replace my Mario Badescu Drying Lotion but ended up liking this more! It feels more gentle than the drying lotion and it has the plus that you don't have to rinse it off in the morning (laziness at its finest).

I use it once or twice a day - I just use two drops and rub it on my face focusing on my cheeks as that's where I get the most spots. It's very gentle and not super drying, specially if you use a moisturiser after, which is exactly what I do.

This product is honestly amazing at preventing spots, ever since I started using it I barely get any! 

2. L'Oreal Triple Active Night Cream

Right so, I got this by mistake. I used to use a really good night cream by L'Oreal but I could never remember its name for the life of me. So one day I went to get a replacement and I just guessed which one it was by looking at the packaging. I got it wrong. 

But thanks to my mistake I discovered this amazing product. It is simple yet effective - which is exactly what I want. It doesn't have any fancy properties or claims to change your skin. It is just a very thick moisturising night cream that actually works and doesn't make your skin oily. 

3. The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Moroccan Argan Oil

Initially, I got this for my hair as it was feeling very dry but I found that it didn't really work - if I used more than three drops my hair became too oily and looked dirty but if I used a couple of drops it didn't really feel like it was doing anything. 

I was watching some Victoria's Secret model skincare routine (think Sara Sampaio's?) and saw she was mixing her oil in her night cream before applying it and thought I would give it a try. 

At first, I did this once a week on Sundays to treat my skin and give it some extra moisture but then slowly started doing it more and more often as it made my skin feel so good. Now I do it pretty much every day - I just add one drop of this oil to my night cream and massage it into my face. This will change everything. 

I am actually pretty sure this is what has made my skin look so good recently, so I would definitley recommend you give it a try! 

Honestly, the best part of this entire routing is how easy, quick and also inexpensive it is! It takes me a total of 2 minutes to do it and each products costs max. £10 so not a bad price to pay for glowy clear skin!

  1. Omg I'm exactly the same; I buy new things all the time so I never manage to stick to a skin care routine for any longer than a few months! I have never tried any of the ordinary's products but have heard great things about them. The salicylic acid solution sounds amazing! Great post x
