    We all have different routine just wondering. Mine is the morning; L'ordeal skin perfection face wash then the l'oreal skin perfection toner then the Nivea face cream for sensitive skin. In the night it is the L'oreal skin perfection face wash then queen Elizabeth cocoa butter face body cream. That's my skin care routine when I wake up and go to bed or before I apply makeup. What's yours???

    I literally just wash my face with shower gel and apply lip balm most of the time, if my skin is a little dry i ll moisturise but otherwise thats it.

    I use a face scrub and then a simple facial wash. I then use a cotton wool pad with the make up removing water, I don't know how to spell it aha; and then use body shop vitamin E toner. I then use the vitamin E moisturizer. I have a dry nose so apply pure vitamin E oil which works really well although its sticky, i only do this bit at night because of the stickiness. As a rule if i am not wearing makeup, i only wash my face with water, as what's the point of using products if i have nothing to remove? Once a week I use the activated carbon make to get rid of any black heads. And that's about it... it seems long but takes me 5 minutes (:

    I used to do that but since I started doing a routine I've noticed I don't get any breakouts at all

    After about 16, unless i m under a lot of stress or have had a really bad week food wise then i never get breakouts anymore. I think the lack of make up helps my skin breathe better too. Although i used to have eczema since i found the trigger i ve been very lucky skin wise.

    I while back I used the vitamine E but I noticed they changed the ingredients or something so I completely stopped using it because it was irritating my skin. I love the L'oreal products now I use it everyday and don't give me any bother. Yes it true that there's no point in using products when I don't have any makeup but I have found a difference on when I don't use it everyday and if I do because when I don't it's so easy for me to breakout whereas when I do it's less likely I will.

    Its simple shower gel stuff, if you close your eyes it does you no harm. I m not a fan of scented soaps and stuff on my face.

    You don't have to use soap. What about a cleanser instead?

    Have you heard of African black soap?

    Oh right, I've never heard of a shower gel that was also suitable for the face.

    I only use an African black soap for my black heads, and a good moisturiser with a good SPF sun factor. But I am a guy so I don't need to spend that much time on my skin.

    Haha yeah it wasn't a great one. If your a guy doesn't mean you don't have to pamper yourself 😄
