I suffer with my skin. I am 27 years old, a mother and I STILL have a face full of spots. I don’t expect this will change as my own mother is the same. As a result my skincare routine has always been very hit and miss.
One of my New year’s resolutions is to find a skin care routine that works for me and to stick to it!
I always cleanse, I apply day cream every day but night cream is a step I always seem to forget.
I find a lot of night creams can be too heavy for my oily skin. I have quite sensitive eyes so finding an eyecream that doesn’t make my eyes all puffy can also be a challenge. On the search for a new overnight duo I decided to go back to basics. Simple. You can’t get more simple than Simple. If my skin is suffering I always go back to Simple as I know it is a failsafe range that won’t break me out or cause a reaction. The night and eye cream duo I chose did not disappoint.
The Vital Vitamin night cream feels thick and luxurious but not overly heavy. It soaks into my skin quickly yet my skin still feel’s nourished come morning. It’s lovely and very affordable.
I never really bother with eye cream but I am reaching the age now where I really, really need to. Those lines! My eyes can be very sensitive so finding an eye cream that doesn’t cause a reaction can be difficult. The soothing eye balm is light in texture, I dab it under my eye and it soon sinks in. My eyes feel refreshed and those fine lines are definitely less visible. Since using this cream I have noticed my eye makeup applies better too!
I am so pleased to have found some products that are working for my skin right now, I just need to remember to apply them each night!Do you have any night or eye cream recommendations?

I really need to try and eye cream, will have a look for this one!

It's a great starter eye cream and won't break the bank xx

I love it when I find a great routine. What really helped me was an appointment I had at a dermatologists (destination skin). They recommended some great treatments and some brilliant products that I love.
Sarah Cantwell14th January 2016 at 12:21 PM
I would love to see a proper dermatologist. I find a lot of 'skin care experts' don't actually know what they are talking about. I will definitely look into destination skin. Thank you for the recommendation lovely xx

I don't have a skincare routine at all – I am so bad like that.
I actually picked up some Simple cleanser and toner the other day with the intention of trying to get into a routine but I've yet to actually use it yet.

It's a great place to start. I used the simple toner for years and always found it good. Xx

My youngest daughter has very sensitive skin, and the only brand that works for her is Simple. It really suits her skin. Kaz x
Sarah Cantwell14th January 2016 at 4:04 PM
My first skincare item was from simple too, It's a great brand for young skins xx
Zoe Forde14th January 2016 at 3:03 PM
I'm obsessed with Simple. I have really really sensitive skin and there's a lot of big brand names that I can't use at all because my face reacts. Simple is one of two that I've ever been happy with x
Sarah Cantwell14th January 2016 at 4:09 PM
You can always rely on simple! 🙂

I never use any kinds of cream but have used a few things from Simple and they're great x
Sarah Cantwell14th January 2016 at 4:52 PM
So easy to use aren't they x

I suffered bad acne for years but I found teatree products and witch hazel really helped to clear it up. It also smells lovely. Worth a try?
Sarah Cantwell14th January 2016 at 4:52 PM
I tried it all as a teenager too! Even had prescribed creams. Might be worth going back to tea tree. Xx
Emma14th January 2016 at 7:31 PM
I've always loved Simple products. Now I use Liz Earle though and it is a great balance for my skin.
Sarah Cantwell14th January 2016 at 7:32 PM
sounds good. What products do you use? X
Amanda Jenner15th January 2016 at 12:04 PM
I really like kheils midnight recovery oil. I have sensitive skin too – it's hard finding the right product. Avene skin recovery cream is good too. I'm tying to take the more organic natural approach at the moment to see if it helps. Have a couple of reviews up on my blog for products I've tried http://www.ourwildthings.com (under the beauty link at the top there's a list) xx
Sarah Cantwell15th January 2016 at 10:01 PM
Ooo! Ill have a look at those. I always like to try new products especially if they have been recommended and if they are natural all the better xx
Charlotte15th January 2016 at 1:18 PM
I need to get better with my skin care routine! Since having my baby I am lucky if I get time to wipe my make up off with a baby wipe! x
Sarah Cantwell15th January 2016 at 8:59 PM
Ha! I know the feeling Charlotte. I now try to at least once a week, usually on a Sunday night once Rosalie has gone to bed, to have a little pamper. I run a nice bath, usually with a nice lush bubble bar and put a face mask on. I feel it sets me up for the week then x
Lamb & Bear17th January 2016 at 8:47 AM
I'm the same hun, I've suffered with bad skin since my late teens/early twenties and it got worse when I had Lamb. Apparently it's more common for women to suffer in later life due to hormone changes. I haven't used Simple products for a while but I've always like them. I use No.7 stuff at the mo xx
Sarah Cantwell17th January 2016 at 9:05 AM
It's so depressing isn't it! Poor us! Hope our skin will eventually sort itself out xx
Tanita Taylor17th January 2016 at 2:20 PM
I have also been suffering with my skin lately but found this great skin hair and nails supplement which I purchased from a Heath food shop and it has worked wonders my skin is completely clear. It has zinc in it and that is supposed to be great for the skin. X
Sarah Cantwell17th January 2016 at 2:29 PM
Oh wow! This sounds amazing. You'll have to let me know what the product is called so I can give it a try x
The Mini Mes and Me18th January 2016 at 12:59 AM
I've never really had a daily skincare routine until very recently, and I'm fast approaching 31! Simple is great though x
Sarah Cantwell18th January 2016 at 7:03 AM
Mine has been hit and miss for years but trying really hard to stick to this one. The important thing is you have started 🙂
