My Summer Morning Skin Care Routine

My Morning Skincare Routine | ESPA Elemis
 Hey beauties, if you're a regular reader of my blog you may be slightly aware that I take my skincare routine very seriously, I think it's so important to look after your skin with good quality products. Working in the beauty industry for the past 4 years I have met many a people who are so unhappy with zero confidence which has all boiled down to them thinking they have pretty naff skin. One client, now a very good friend of mine, had tried every product she could possibly get her hands on to help with her congested acne skin, special acne cream from the Doctors - you name it she tried it. I recommended her Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser, Elemis Skin Buff and Elemis S.O.S Emergency Cream, I had high hopes these would work for her having been lucky enough to have good knowledge of Elemis products and the science behind them. Long story short just over a month later her skin looked utterly amazing, it still does today and it's all because she invested in some decent skin care products. She was over the moon and couldn't quite believe the difference, I have to say this is the best part of my job. I know looking at the prices they seem costly but look at it as an investment, it's going to last you much longer than say a Simple moisturiser for £4.99 and actually give you great results with trustworthy ingredients. Why buy a high end foundation when your skin isn't so fabby dabby due to cheap skin care? Anyway enough of me rambling on but I do hope you get what I'm trying to say. Some of you may think I have a little too much time on my hands in the morning, I probably would too seeing all these products laid out - honestly I don't. This takes me no longer than 5 minutes and now I'm in a set routine it's second nature to me. Here are the products I'm currently using and loving for my morning routine!
Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash | £29.00 - I brought this in May as a duo alongside the Elemis Apricot Toner in my Elemis Haul HERE. In that post I previously mentioned how I mainly brought this product as a friend of mine had been using it and the results on her were amazing. Well ladies and gents I have to say my skin looks....flawless! (Not to blow my own trumpet mind) This facial wash deeply cleanses my skin to reveal a much smoother, refined and radiant complexion whilst sloughing away dead skin cells. I am loving this facial wash with the results it has given me, I think it's pretty safe to say this has become a firm favourite of my morning skin care routine!

 ♥ Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner | £22.00 - it's so important to use a toner in your everyday skincare routine to close any open pores and balance out the PH level on your skin. This smells as delicious as it's sounds and it leaves my skin feeling beautifully supple without any tightness around my cheeks which is what I normally used to suffer with. I love that this is a spritz as it's really great as a hydrating booster throughout these hot summer days!

♥ Elemis Absolute Eye Serum | £29.00 - again I brought this in my Elemis Haul and I'm loving the light serum as it's quickly absorbed into the eye contour leaving it perfectly hydrated. I've also noticed a huge difference in under eye creases once applying my concealer since using this beauty, I think using this as well as drinking 3 litres of water a day has helped massively.

♥ ESPA 24 Hour Balancing Moisturiser | £37.00 - this wonderful product was featured in my June favourites HERE. This has been scientifically proven to work on your skin for 24 hours - sold! This moisturiser is super light which helps to balance natural oils as well as hydrating your skin. You normally tend to find that no matter how oily your skin can be, it will always have dehydrated areas so this would be perfect for any of you who have combination/oily/dehydrated skin!

 Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm | £33.00 - a firm member of my top 3 favourite skin care products of life! A superb moisturiser and primer in one - this leaves a beautiful dewy sheen on my face making my skin glow and it's also a perfect base for my make up application.
