My Skincare Routine

Today I am going to share my skincare routine with you. I have recently brought new products and sort of ‘recreated’ my skincare routine ( is ‘recreated’ even a word? ).So I thought I would share it with you.
There is a basic structure for any skincare routine: Cleanse, Exfoliate, Tone, Moisturise and Protection – sun cream etc. ( only in the morning though ).

For my cleanser, I like to use the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. When I wake up in the morning, and my face feels oily, I use a couple of cotton pads with a dribble of this on them to cleanse my face and afterwards, my face feels a lot cleaner than it did before. It also gives you the fresh sort of feeling.


Then I go in with my  exfoliator, I use the Garnier Pure Active Intensive Exfo-Brusher. This works really well and leaves my face feeling really soft.


Next I use the Lush Tea Tree Toner Water. This removes any left over dirt from my face. It smells amazing and it tightens pores. It feels so refreshing when you spray it on your face and it cools my face down when I am too hot.


I use the Garnier Pure Active Matte Control as my moisturizer. If I use a normal lotion or moisturizer on my face, I tend to become quite shiny afterwards. This cream moisturises your face and keeps you matte at the same time. I really moisturises my face and leaves it feeling soft and silky.



This was my skincare routine that I complete 3-4 times a week ( well I cleanse & moisturise everyday ).

June Favourites

As you will all know – unless you live under a rock or have been asleep for the past 3-4 days – it is now July. Another month is finished with which means only one thing … a monthly favourites post *insert dramatic music.

At the start of the month, I went through a stage where I had tons and tons of spots all over my face and no matter what I did I could get rid of them. My dad took me with him to do the big food shop and I saw this and thought I would purchase it. I am honestly so glad I did. It dries out your spots, but not so much that your face feels tight. It contains lavender oil, to soothe any redness and its roll-on application is so handy for on the go. simple spot zapper

I recently ran out of my shampoo & conditioner, so I went out and brought a new bottle. I have naturally quite curly, frizzy hair that tends to be ever so slightly dry, so I looked for a nourishing frizz avoiding shampoo and conditioner and I found exactly that. I brought the Garnier Ultimate Blends The Sleek Restorer shampoo and conditioner and it has helped me so much. It has made my hair so soft and silky and it tames the frizz.

A couple of days ago I ran out of my favourite ever body spray so I started using my other Charlie spray  – Rio rebel –  that has been sat in my draw for ages. I wish I stared using it sooner. I have worn this every day since and I am honestly in love with it.  It has a slight fruity smell to it and it just smells like summer in a bottle.

Of course I am going to have a few music favourite this month

  1.  Don’t Let Me Down – The Chainsmokers &  Daya
  2. Do It Right – Anne-Marie
  3. Tears – Clean Bandit & Louisa Johnson
  4. This One’s For You – David Guetta & Zara Larsson

I also have a few YouTube favourites,  am literally obsessed

  1. Olivia Grace – It seems like she puts so much time and effort it to all of her videos and they are just so fun to watch.
  2. Tatiana Boyd – Her videos just cheer me up when I feel down and I love the bright colour theme.
  3. Liza Koshy – Where do I start? Her videos are just hilarious, I enjoy every video and I don’t think there has ever been a video where I haven’t laughed.

That was my first ever favourites post and my first ever proper post on here. I can’t wait until the summer so I can be even more active on here.

All my life I have wanted to own a beauty blog, a place where I can share with you my favourite things and be myself. I guess I just wanted to stop dreaming and to start doing so I did it. Here it is. My beauty blog.

I know that nobody is probably reading this, but if you are hi. My blogging name is Ocean and I hope to start posting on here soon. I will hopefully be posting things from reviews to favourites and lots of other things. I think I  will try to post at least once a week.

If you have any post requests please comment them down below and I hope to see you in my next post.

Bye xx
