Skin care routine

For Christmas I have received some lovely skin care things (requested) but I don't know what order or when to use what! I've got Clarins face wash, face mask, eye make up remover and eye make up remover plus Clinique take off the day flannel and cream, all about eyes cream, a sculpting moisturiser, a 'thirsty' moisturiser, an 'intelligent' moisturiser and a primer! Help please, feeling overwhelmed!

Ok that's way too many products to be using all in one go for a start! If ur wearing make up then use ur Clinique take the day off with a flannel then follow with ur face wash. Then choose one of the moisturisers and massage that in. In the mornings just use the face wash then moisturiser followed by ur primer before make up.

Great thank you, so I don't need the special eye stuff? That's great, it will last longer then too. Thanks again

U can use the eye stuff if u like, just dab some eye cream on before/after ur moisturiser whichever way round works best for u,(I don't use eye cream, not sure it works) The eye mask u could either use as a once weekly treat or when ur eyes are feeling particularly tired.

Sorry just realised u said face mask not eye mask!! U can use face mask once a week or fortnight

You should look into double cleansing. I have been doing it a week and I can't believe the difference it makes.

Kwick709 Sat 02-Jan-16 09:10:18

I would second that - does not take long and makes you feel nuturing to your skin smile

Sorry not been on in a while, will look up double cleansing now, I'm struggling to get a single cleansing routine going though!
