Summer Skincare Routine 2021

Haven't done a skincare routine post in ages (over 4 years if you are curious) and I feel like it is a good thing to have my routine documented as it gives me insight on what products are working for me if I ever need to go back to something I know will be good for my skin. It is also nice to look back and remember what my routine was like and see the evolution of my product preferences. 

At the moment I'm at a point where I want products to be effective but gentle, moisturising and lightweight at the same time, as I feel that a gentle approach can be so beneficial for problem skin and sometimes breakouts can be caused by a damaged skin barrier and dryness, which harsh products and exfoliants can provoke, so currently working towards a more eastern-style approach to my skincare routine. 

Morning routine:

Garnier Organic Lemongrass Detox Gel Wash: a gentle cleanser with glycerin that leaves my skin soft (full review here).

HaruHaru WONDER Black Rice Hyaluronic Toner: it hydrates, helps the following products to apply more easily and is high in antioxidants (full review here).

Naturally Radiant Glow Skin Perfecting Booster: a redness soothing, microbiome balancing serum that also moisturises the skin (full review here).

SNP mini Eye & Facial Nourishing Cream: a lightweight moisturiser with niacinamide, ceramide and peptides for softer, soothed skin (full review here).

Simple Protecting Moisture Cream SPF 30: moisturises well and uses a mix of chemical and mineral filters. Sadly this is now discontinued but I've got their new vitamin C version as a backup. 

Night routine:

I have been using the same cleanser, toner, eye cream and serum (not pictured) morning and night, however I switch it up for a moisturiser and added an extra serum.

KLAVUU The Origin Deep Ocean Gel Comforter: a lightweight hydrating gel with glycerin, panthenol and seaweed extracts in a giant 70ml pot (full review here).

The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5: a hydrating serum with soothing panthenol to lightly moisturise the skin. I apply it last to avoid any redness or stinging (full review here).


Garnier Micellar Rose Water: if I've been wearing makeup or need to pre-cleanse to remove mineral sunscreen I will use this (full review here).

Botanical Lab Pumpkin & Papaya Enzyme Daily Exfoliator: once a week I will use this toner to exfoliate my skin. Haven't fully reviewed it yet but I am really liking it so far after only 3 uses!

The Inkey List Retinol Serum: twice a week I will apply this serum all over my face after cleansing and under the Naturally Radiant Glow Serum and Klavuu moisturiser. Haven't reviewed it in full as it can take a while to see results. 

Cien Tropical Summer Mango Face Mask: a fruit enzyme brightening and smoothing mask that I've been using once a week (full review here).

Sanctuary Spa Charcoal Detox Mask: a warming clay mask that doesn't dry out the skin. I have been using it once a week (full review here).

Do you currently use any of these products?
