Bonjour à tous!

I have been suffering from bad skin for at least a year now. It is rather bizarre, because you think – ok, I’m no longer a teenager (and as I teenager I didn’t have many spots), I’m fine. This wasn’t the case – I’ve suffered from bad skin predominantly in my early 20’s! I had tried so many different expensive lotions and potions – to no avail.

HOWEVER: I have recently been implementing some changes in my life that have really helped me to turn my skin around. It looks a lot happier and healthier, and although it is still a work in progress, I am looking toward a much clearer-skinned future. So, here is my skincare routine – I hope it will help you with yours!


Ok, so first of all I have been starting with cleansing my skin with the Amie Gently Cleansing Micellar Water. I was gifted a beautiful set of Amie products and the cleanser has been fantastic. You can use it to remove your makeup, to cleanse your skin and to tone- a 3-in-1! It removes makeup really easily (I just use a tissue with it) and then makes your skin feel pleasantly tingly and sparkling clean. It also has a delicious soft rose scent. You can purchase a beautiful Amie cleanser and mattifying moisturiser here.

Following this, I like to pop on my lovely Dream Cream from Lush as a moisturiser. I know it is technically a body lotion, but it is meant for sensitive skin and Lush are not particularly prescriptive with their products – they encourage you to use them however you want to! It can also help to treat eczema and to cool down hot and damaged skin. I just love the way that it smells and how nice it makes my skin feel. It’s great!

Right before I go to bed, I use the Young Living Purification Essential Oil Blend that I got from Cheryl, a Young Living distributor, Wellness Advocate, Life Coach and my lovely hairdresser! I feel like this has potentially helped to heal my skin the most and made the largest difference in how my skin looks and feels. It contains a combination of oils from plants that have historically been known to calm the skin and rid it of pimples and the like. It has a little round ball applicator so I just roll it on my skin before sleep. When I wake up in the morning, my skin looks fresh, clean and pretty, which makes me happy!

I sometimes use some Lucas’ Paw Paw Ointment before bed as well, particularly if my lips are feeling chapped or dry. This just helps to rejuvenate and moisturise them overnight. I have also been using the Amie Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish about once a week, which smells of beautiful mango. I am careful not to use it too often as my skin is quite sensitive, but it has been good so far.


On top of my skincare routine, I have also been avoiding eating sugar and trying to do at least a little bit of exercise every day. This has contributed to the improvements in my skin, and also how healthy I feel.

Yesterday night I attended the Bloggers United Birthday Party at Lush in Rundle Mall, which was absolutely fantastic, very informative and lots of fun. Whilst there, I was lucky enough to get some goodies which I am very excited to try out. I am going to write another post all about the event and write several mini-posts reviewing each of the goodies I received! It will be a Lush review mini-series, which I hope you will enjoy.

What is your skin routine? Are you pleased with how your skin is going at the moment?

Like you, my skin has also mostly been playing up since my early 20s. I never thought I’d long back to those teenage years haha. I’ve never heard of the Amie brand but I’m always open to learning about and trying new things, especially when there’s a big chance they might have a positive effect on my skin. Personally, Lush and Simple products have helped me a lot. I’m a huge fan of Lush’s Herbalism and Mask of Magnaminty, and Simple has fantastic moisturizers. They’ve never irritated or dried out my skin, which is very important for me. I also… Read more »
