Budget Skincare Routine

Hello! 
Today I'm bringing to you my budget skincare routine! 

I'll be the first to admit I wasn't too big into skincare up until about a year ago but I think I've finally found a system that works for me and that will hopefully work for you!

 *Yes, i use a LOT of simple products. Not sponsored obvs. but I just love their skincare. *




I've been thankful not to have too bad of skin but I do have some breakouts here and there. My skin is also really dry.So I'll start off with my morning skincare routine and then my nighttime one! 


In the morning I normally do the first two steps in the shower just because I find it the easiest way to do it. 

I start off with the SImple Moisturizing face wash, which I find really gentle and cleansing at the same time. It doesn't have an fragrance and is just a really gentle face wash. I also don't find it to dry me out at all. 

Every other day (or if I'm just feeling really grimy!) I use the St. Ives Apricot Scrub, which is such a steal for such a fantastic product! I find that this exfoliates my skin but isn't too harsh. And it smells INCREDIBLE! It definitely leaves my skin feeling so so clean. 

After I get out of the shower I've been using a toner just to get any other dirt that might be on my face (mostly if I don't use the exfoliator) and I've been loving the Simple Soothing Toner. I love that it is 100% alcohol free so it doesn't dry out my skin but leaves it feeling fresh and clean. I never understood the importance of toner but I really think it helps to put on my make-up smoother and leaves my face a lot cleaner! 

I then put on moisturizer because by this point my face is pretty dry. I've been using the Up and Up Moisturizer, which is a great deal and has SPF! I like to use a moisturizer with SPF during the day and one without before I go to bed. This doesn't break me out and leaves my skin feeling really soft. I will say if you don't like the sun screen smell - this might not be for you! 


My nighttime skincare routine is a lot less involved. I've been taking my make-up (if i wear it that day) with the Simple Micellar Water, which has been a total game changer! I mentioned it in my August favorites as well but my opinion is still the same. Such a great product! It doesn't burn my eyes and is so light on my skin. It also leaves it feeling pretty moisturized!! 

After I like to go over with my simple toner again just to make sure I got all my make-up off. If I didn't wear make-up that day I normally just use this to quickly clean my face. 

After that I use a moisturizer. I've been using the Clinique Moisture Surge Nighttime Mask, which I've really been enjoying. I've been using a sample size for about a week and I've got a LOT left! The full size only costs 8 dollars so this product really doesn't break the bank for being clinique! It leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft even the next morning! It's also fragrance free, which I like. 


Well that's it! That is my daily skincare routine.
