A summer update to my skincare routine

Summer skincare routine

New summer skincare products

I like to switch up my skincare at the start of each season, so although this post is coming to you mid-summer it’s full of products that I have been adding to my routine since early June! I have six products to share with you – you’ve probably already seen them on my Insta stories but I’m going to give you a more in-depth review of each of them here!

Alpha H balancing cleanser
Emma Hardie cleansing balm

The cleansing duo

Emma Hardie cleansing balm – This is such a cult product, and I’ve been lusting after it ever since seeing Zoe Sugg rave about it years ago! I was invited down to the 10th anniversary celebrations for Emma Hardie and was given this gorgeous limited edition tub of the cleansing balm and I am totally in love with it! It’s such a rich, nourishing formula that my skin just loves, and it’s great as the first step of cleansing.

Alpha H balancing cleanser – This is actually my third tube of the Alpha H balancing cleanser, and I think that says a lot about just how much I love it! It’s a rich cream that my skin really loves, and when I use it regularly my skin is clear and radiant. It’s such a gentle cleanser, so I recommend it for anyone and everyone!

Alpha H Liquid Gold eye cream

The eye cream

Alpha H Liquid Gold eye cream – I’m very sporadic with using eye creams, but during the summer it’s an area of my face that I really like to take care of. I’m a big fan of Alpha H products (especially the balancing cleanser and Liquid Gold) so I already knew this would be a winner for me. I’m looking forward to seeing the results after a couple of months of use.

Beauti beauty sleep elixr

The serum and oil

Romilly Wilde Advanced Supercell Serum – I love a good serum, and MAN is this one good! The formula is vegan and features plant ferments that will boost collagen. I really like the formula of this serum, and it’s perfect for using in the evening just before bed.

Beauti beauty sleep elixir – I love a good oil, and using one just before bed is the perfect way to keep my skin hydrated and nourished. This one includes  14 plant-based oils, including a Caribbean coral extract, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory as it neutralizes the enzyme responsible for skin aging, plus a sandalwood nut kernel oil to help prevent collagen and elastin break down.

REN Glycol Lactic radiance renewal mask

The 10 minute mask

REN Glycol Lactic radiance renewal mask – I like to use a face mask twice a week, and during the warmer months I tend to favour masks that are quick to use and focused on boosting radiance (because who doesn’t love that summer glow?!) This REN mask is one I’ve recently added to my collection and I’m so glad I did because it’s amazing! You apply it and just leave it on for 10 minutes and afterwards you’re left with glowing, radiant skin.
