My Skincare Routine: Day

Hey Everyone,
A post on my skincare routine has been a long time coming... I love skincare and finding new and exciting products. I have split my routine into two posts Day and Evening as it was too long for one! 
Before I begin I thought I would tell you about my skin type which is sensitive combination, I have sensitive skin which means I have to be careful about what I put on it. As well as this I have combination skin which means I have dry patches as well as oily and I'm prone to break outs and hormonal acne! 

I start my mornings by using this as a cleanser. It is great for the mornings when I'm feeling a little bit lazy as I just put a small amount on a cotton wool pad and wipe my face! Having already fully cleansed my face the night before, this is an amazing quick cleanser and for those of you that are a fan of wipes this is a great alternative that is a lot better for your skin! 
I only recently started using toner and I can honestly say I don't know why I haven't been using it all along! I close my eyes and spritz this all over my face, then wiping it away with a cotton pad. I especially love that you wipe this away (people who are not a fan of toners because of alcohol content) this means the alcohol isn't sitting on your face, but it still gives the benefits of a toner and takes away any last residues of cleanser.  
Tip: Putting this in the fridge gives a cooling effect, and is perfect in the morning and summer to awaken the skin!
3. Spot Treatment: La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo
I use this on my face to control my acne prone skin, listed below are the products I use to keep my skin clear!
4. Moisturise: Vichy Normaderm Anti-Age
I'm at the point now where I need to start thinking about Anti Aging products, but I still have combination/acne prone skin that I also need to cater for. This moisturiser suits all those needs as well as being a great base for makeup! I only use a pea sized amount and rub it into my face and neck!
Spot Treatments:
My favourite spot treatment! I apply this morning and evening before moisturising. You can apply it all over the face but because I have combination skin and some areas are dry, I like to just apply it to my acne prone areas! This is great for prevention as well as a spot treatment.
I recently did a post on how Aloe Vera Gel has helped to heal my acne scaring, and redness left after spots have gone... you can find that HERE!
I use this mainly in the evening before bed as the gel is quite thick, I apply it to redness and scarring by taking a small amount and rubbing it into the area. 
A few months ago my skin went through a very bad stage (I don't know why) and this was the only thing that worked to clear up my face! This is a product that comes in a little bottle which you apply like a toner, putting the product on a cotton pad and wiping it over the face. You then leave it to dry before applying anything else! This really works and is amazing for clearing up bad skin. The only downside is the smell, but I definitely would put up with that for clearer skin (also the smell fades in a matter of minutes once it is applied to the skin)!

Do you use any of these products? What your favourite Day skincare product?
