My Morning Skincare Routine

I reach for one of three cleansers every morning, depending on how my skin is feeling at the time. If my skin feels dry and dehydrated or just 'normal' I will use the Arbonne FC5 Hydrating Cleanser + Freshener for normal/dry skin. This cleanser has a lovely consistency and feels very soft on the skin, leaving my face feeling smooth and fresh. I've been using this cleanser the most recently, as I combated my oily skin using the second cleanser that I might choose on a morning. The cleanser in question is the Arbonne FC5 Purifying Cleanser + Toner for oily/combination skin. This really 'fixed' my skin when I started using it back in the summer of 2013 however I still have quite a lot of this left so am slowly using it up on days when my skin feels slightly oily-prone. I will sometimes reach for the Tropic Smoothing Cleanser if I'm feeling indulgent, as this cleanser tops the rest for me in terms of smell, texture and how great it leaves my skin feeling. Once my other cleansers have run out I will probably use just this, every day, morning and night.

Step 2: Exfoliate, once or twice a week
I must admit, I'm not a fan of the exfoliator that I'm using at the minute but it is too expensive for me to just throw away and I've used too much to justify trying to sell/give it to someone else. Plus its Arbonne-priced. So I'm using it up until I can justify buying a new one. The exfoliator in question is Arbonne's FC5 Exfoliating New Cell Scrub. I find this just doesn't scrub away dead skin and really wrestle with blackheads like I like my exfoliators to do. I'm definitely considering buying Tropic's Face Smooth Polish after trying a friend of mine's a few weeks back and loving it!

Step 3: Moisturise
Recently I've been using the FC5 Nurturing Day Lotion for normal/dry skin from Arbonne to go with the Hydrating Cleanser + Freshener when my skin is feeling 'normal' or dry. However, like with my cleansers, I will swap to Arbonne's FC5 Oil-Absorbing Day Lotion if my skin is feeling particularly oily. Or, I will use both - the Oil-Absorbing moisturiser on my t-zone and the Nurturing moisturiser on the rest of my face.

Step 4: Spot treatment, if necessary
I use the Arbonne Deep Cleansing Mask on spots overnight but if they are the persistent type I will dab the teeniest amount of the cleansing mask on the spot so it can continue to work its magic during the day under my makeup.

I will soon be posting my evening skincare routine, so make sure you have a read of that to see what products I use every night!
