I have been using this combination of products for a couple of weeks now and, as promised, I’d like to express my thoughts on the matter. This is a set of products that the internet, and other bloggers have made me desire for quite some time so to be honest with you, my hopes were pretty high. Despite this, I haven’t been disappointed. In this post, I will be covering the products that are appropriate for my skin type, so bloody dry, so if you would like to purchase any of these products, please make sure you buy the ones that are for your skin type.
Every morning, I like to use the Hot Cloth Cleanser to start my day. I take a single pump of the product on my fingers then massage it into dry skin using circular motions. I then cleanse/remove the cleanser using a muslin cloth and water that is somewhere between warm and hot. All you do is wet one of the cloths with the water and cleanse the skin using circular motions. Between sections of my face I like to change the area of the cloth that I am using and rinse it under the water in order to warm it up again. The cleanser itself suggests you splash your face with cold water after this step however I like to move straight on to the Gentle Face Exfoliator so when I go to apply my make up, my skin is completely free of dry, flakey patches. Gross. I splash my face a couple of times with warm water then apply the exfoliator in the same way that I did the Cleanse and Polish. I wash it off with warm water then splash my face a couple of times with the warm water just as the packaging suggests. Next up, I like to use the Instant Boost Skin Tonic on a cotton wool pad and I just sweep this over the entirety of the face. To finish I use Skin Repair Moisturiser for Dry/Sensitive Skin which I just work into the skin like you would with any moisturiser. After this I just move straight onto my normal makeup routine.
On an evening, I like to start my skincare by using the Garnier SkinActive Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water to remove the thick of my makeup, mainly my eyeliner as it won’t come off without an oil. Sign of a good eyeliner in my books. I also prefer to try to get quite a bit of my makeup off before I start with the hot cloth cleanser again as I have found that the kind of makeup looks I go for tend to stain the muslin cloths. This isn’t the biggest problem in the world as you only have to wash them without fabric softener and they’re almost good as new and ready to use again. I believe you can go straight in for the cleanser if you want though. I then repeat my process with the hot cloth cleanser. I miss out the exfoliator on an evening and then I repeat the rest of my morning routine.
Overall, I have been loving using all of the products I have mentioned in this post. I have noticed that my skin is slightly clearer, not loads clearer because I didn’t have many problems with spots or blackheads before using this. What I really love about this routine is that it seems to have cleared up my dry patches a hell of a lot. I used to get dry patches as the day went on and if I had a full face of makeup on my nose would literally peel away during the day, lovely, I know, but since using this combination, my skin has been so so so much better. My nose doesn’t peel anymore and I’ve literally creams and things from the doctors that haven’t worked half as well as these have. I’m seriously impressed!
