Skincare routine

From left to right: Clinique anti-blemish solutions cleansing foam, Clinique anti-blemish solutions clarifying lotion, Clinique anti-blemish solutions clearing moisturiser, St Ives Natually clear apricot scrub, Biore moisture lotion, Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes night calming

When I moved out of home two years ago my skin really freaked out and I started to breakout a lot on my chin, which I had previously not had a lot of problems with. I have been using this skincare routine for around one and half years.

To take my makeup off at night I use the Neutrogena makeup remover wipes. I have the night calming ones and they are great at taking off all my makeup, even waterproof mascara.
I then wash my face, morning and night, with the Clinique anti-blemish solutions clearing foam. It is not too harsh on my skin but really gets the job done. 
Next I wipe over my face with the clarifying lotion, which helps to remove any makeup or dirt still on my face. Lastly, I smooth the clearing moisturiser over my face. This Clinique moisturiser helps to keep blemishes at bay and is also not too harsh on my skin.

One or two times a week I use the St Ives naturally clear apricot scrub to really wake up my skin and to remove any dead skin cells. It really helps during winter when my skin is at its driest. I have been using this scrub since I was a teenager and really love what it does to my skin. 
I rarely use a normal moisturiser but in winter I do sometimes have to top up my skin with some extra moisture and at the moment I am using the Biore moisturiser. It has SPF 15 in it so it helps to keep my skin from getting burnt. 

I am on the hunt for a product with greater SPF in it for the summer. The product has to be good for breakout prone skin and for wearing under makeup. If anyone has any suggestions let me know.

I hope your having a fabulous day,
