Morning Skincare Routine

The morning is my nemesis. I have to be at work by 8 a.m. every day and I like to get as much sleep as possible. Keeping my morning skincare routine quick and effortless is essential. While in the shower I use my REN Rose Centifolia Foaming Cleanser ($22) to cleanse my skin, wash off sleep, and any remnants from my evening skincare routine. I'm not in love with this cleanser. The rose scent is a bit too harsh, but the cleanser itself is nice and gentle for the mornings. It can be a bit drying at times though. Once out of the shower, I take a cotton pad and my beloved The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner ($13) to tone my skin. I can't say enough good things about this toner. It's gentle, effective, and lasts ages for the price. 

My skin is more than happy when I apply my Origins GinZing Energy-boosting Moisturizer ($26.50). It's hydrating and soothes my always dry morning skin. Finally I finish things off with my Origins GinZing Refreshing eye cream to brighten and depuff (full size $30). I haven't seen any noticeable changes to my dark circles with this product yet, but it does brighten just a bit and helps prime my under eyes for my concealer. And that's it! Quick, easy, and helps me get my day started.

What products do you use in your morning skincare routine??

  1. I need to get better at this. The fact that I like to sleep in as much as possible I quickly will forget to do this. But it is so important!

  2. I miss having some GinZing eye cream, I had the smallest sample pot and I went through it so quickly :( Really need to get my hands on the bodyshop toner, that bottle is huuuge! x
