If I could only have 3 Skincare Products. ♡

Hey guys! It's officially 3 Days, 13 hours and 00 minutes and 30 seconds until spring at the time of writing this, but hey who's counting?! I'm so excited for spring because winter is over after new years for me and then it just seems cold and it drags out for way too long especially in the UK. Although many debates have been made when springs starts (whether its 1st of march or 21st) the weather in the UK is way too bipolar for spring to start n the 1st. And it was freaking freezing yesterday! Anyhow, just wanted to share my 3 must have skincare products and the three very bare essentials for me. The 'If I could only have 3 Makeup Products' post here went down a treat with you guys, so I thought this would be fun to do as well, for those of us who, lets be honest have those lazy day routines. And let's be real, who uses 10 products a day, 7 days a week, everyday anyway?! I certainly try to take care of my skin, but no human being has a strict morning and evening routines that they ALWAYS do. Yes, we all try our best to maintain routines, blah blah blah, but this is for the lazy folks like me, who want to strip their skin care to the very bare minimum, and the products I would choose if I only had 3 products to pick for the rest of my life!

If I only had 3 skincare bits to use, it would be essential for me to have a good moisturising product, a good scrub product and something for the days in-between.

Cleanser- I chose this Garnier Pure Active Micellar Water instead of a wash clearer because I find myself using this more than my wash cleansers. If I'm in a rush in the morning, and I don't have time to splash water over my face, this makes me feel super refreshed and clean. Although my main routine happens in the evening, so I don't need major cleansing in the day, I just need a splash of water to wake and prepare my face for makeup. This product is very gentle on my skin and especially the eyes. The same product in the pink bottle slightly stung my eyes, but this has been nothing but perfect. It's perfect for lazy days or when you just want to crawl in your bed, because you can just do it in your bed if you fancy it and all you need is one/ two large round cotton pads depending on the amount of makeup you've got on that day.

Scrub- So if I did use the Garnier Micellar Water everyday for the rest of my life, I would want something a couple of times a week to give my skin a proper scrub from the grub. Although the cleanser does a really epic job, sometimes you want something physically scrubby to feel all the grubby come off (I love that rhyming combo hahaha). So I would always choose this Vitamin C scrub from The Body Shop. It has a citrucy smell to it, which to me smell really 'fresh'. It has vitamin C so it should brighten your skin in the process too. This product is quite rough, but that's how I like my cleanser. You should perhaps get a tester before buying the full thing if you have sensitive skin, just in case. My skin feels really refreshed and really clean after this, although I feel like you need a good moisturiser after this scrub.

Moisturiser- This is my holy grail product. Although this is an overnight Serum in Oil, it feels really light and absorbs into the skin really quickly. For my oily skin gals, don't be afraid of this, it will not leave your skin oily. I know I keep saying this, but it's really important that people with oily skin don't avoid moisturisers, because if you don't use them, the oils will appear on your skin more prominently than if you don't use moisturiser because your skin will crave moisture. That's why I think this is perfect because you can use a small bit in the morning or a little bit more for the night. It's perfect in every way, gentle, absorbent, moisturising, non greasy, not oily looking and will nourish the skin. The best thing is that it has properties of an oil but looks like serum, which means it doesn't look like an oil on your skin and doesn't feel like an oil.
Let me know what your top 3 products are, I'd love to know and try them! Lots of love to you guys!
