I have completely changed my skincare routine. This is very much unlike me, but my skin has recently decided to become very oily which I think is due to the change of the season as we are heading into Summer! Which is great, just not for my skin and for many others that suffer with excess oil.

My T-Zone is so oily, make up won't stay there unless I have used a matte foundation and a long wearing powder. As for my cheeks, they are so dry and they also can not withstand product. This doesn't make much sense to me, I'm not sure if my cheeks are trying to compensate for the lack of moisture therefore they are just absorbing the product, don't hold me to that silly theory.

So, as for the products, first up is the Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean - it is a cleansing milk which melts away the majority of my make up, I splash warm water on my face, pump a few pumps into the palm of my hands and start rubbing this into my skin. I rinse and repeat, a couple of times a week for a deep cleanse, I use my No7 cleansing brush which reaches down into the pores of my skin getting rid of build up dirt and dead skin cells... kinda gross.

Seconds up, if I'm feeling lazy or my skin is having a bad oily day then I end up using Good Things Deep Clean Blackhead Exfoliator which smells great seeing as it has papaya and licorice in it! If I use this too much though, it does dry out my skin - can't win. But it has no parabens which is good for me! It contains small beads which aren't too harsh but you just know they are scrubbing the dirt away.

Lastly is the finish touch to my skin. Even though I have oily skin, I do put an oil on it at night so my skin can soak up the goodness. I use the Body Shop Vitamin E oil, it smells lovely and you do not need to use a lot of this. It has lasted me since March and I have barely used any of it.

In the morning, again depending on how my skin is feeling that day, oily or not. If it has decided it wishes to be oily that day or I check the weather - sunny means a matte moisturiser which will stop me looking so shiny. Good Things Miracle Mattifier Lotion - this is insanely good. Again, I can't use it too often, otherwise my skin starts drying out so for those of you whose skin is incredibly oily, this is the product for you. It smells great again, and it keeps the shine away all day.

If my skin looks like it is lacking life, then I use Botanics Radiance Balm, which has a pearly finish to it. If you're wanting to achieve a dewy look, mix some of this with your foundation, it looks very natural but you still have all the coverage there.

What are your opinions on these products?

  1. I have tried a couple of products from Good Things and have nothing but Good Things to say about them! :)

  2. I've never used a face oil but they seem to have become popular! Maybe I'll check this one out.
