When it comes to beauty and skincare I love to try out new products. I have a skincare routine for both morning and night which works well for me. I believe that it's important get skincare right. There are so many different products though that you may feel overwhelmed so I've complied a list of products that you need to buy. I've not included make up and may end up doing a separate post on that. I however have included a few haircare related items.

One of things I have been looking into more recently is using more eco friendly products and ones that are especially vegan.

 Facial wash

I use a facial wash morning and night. It's important to have a good one that doesn't strip the oils from your skin. 


I like to double cleanse first off with a miceller water and then with a cream cleanser. It isn't a necessity to double cleanse though. It's just important to find the right cleanser for you to help remove your make up and dirt each day. 


Moisturisers are tricky as there are so many different ones available. Getting advice about your skin type would be the best thing to do if you don't know already. I personally prefer moisturiser in a gel formula. 


A Primer is a must before applying make up. It helps to even out your skintone, helps to apply your make up smoothly and stay in place.


Toner is designed to cleanse the skin and shrink the appearance of pores. My favourite one at the moment is from Botanical Lab which is a vegan friendly formula.

Facial Serum

I started using a Facial serum before I apply primer and moisturiser over the past year. I've tried a few but my favourite so far is the vitamin C serum by Eclat not only is it a vegan friendly formula it contains hyaluronic acid, which can make your skin look younger. 

Face masks 

I love relaxing once sometimes twice a week with a face mask. Like with moisturiser it's best to use one that suits your skin type. I like ones that are hydrating.

Lash Serum

Another product I've started using over the past year is a lash serum. A lash serum helps to get your lashes looking fuller and thicker. 

Eye cream

The skin around your eyes are much more delicate. Using an eye cream helps to improve under-eye smoothness and reduce the depth of larger wrinkles.


Sunscreen is extremely important. If you want to keep your skin looking young and healthy for as long as possible, then it is time to start using sunscreen every day!

Lip balm

Your lips are very sensitive so using a lip balm every day to prevent dry, sore and chapped lips is a must. Opt for one with sheer butter for maximum results.

Hand and foot creams 

This time of year my hands get very dry, flakey and sore. A good handcream really does help. Don't forget your feet either as they need hydration and nourishment too. 

Heat protector 

To help prevent damage to your hair a heat protector is important to apply to your hair before using any type of styling tool that uses heat. They come in a few different formulas sprays, serums or creams.

Hair mask

Hair masks always great for helping to moisturise and nourish your hair. Some hair masks may even improve your scalp and boost the strength of your hair.
