I'm in my early twenties and I have no skin care routine at all. Does anyone have any recommendations? I get quite oily skin, which is also sensitive , and do get a few spot but not many. I'm also a bit hard up at the moment so the cheaper the better!

I would try oil cleansing - cheap and very effective. Jojoba oil is good for oily skin:

pour small puddle of oil into palm of hand
rub hands together to warm oil
massage oil gently all over face and neck, ideally for about 2 minutes
wring out flannel or muslin in hand-hot water
drape flannel over face and leave it there until it cools
use flannel to gently wipe oil off face, taking with it all make-up and dirt
Repeat the hot cloth part again, wringing out in fresh water
rub a drop or two of oil over face to moisturise if you need it

I would only do this at night. Just clean face with flannel wrung out in hot water in the mornings

Liz Earle is amazing. It's quite pricey to buy all three cleanse, tone and moisturise but if you can afford one the Cleanse and Polish is the best cleanser I've ever used. Smells amazing and leaves your skin very clean and smooth. Also removes all make up even mascara.

I use liz Earle hot cloth cleanser too... Fab! But have read recommendations for a Superdrug version that is way cheaper
