Morning Skincare Routine

Skincare Routine
Estee Lauder Daywear Range

We all know the importance of skincare routines, and that you must start with skincare in order to have beautiful skin.

So here are the three main products I use in the morning before doing my make up

- Estee Lauder Daywear Moisturiser for Normal to Combination Skins
- Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skin Tone Illuminator
- Estee Lauder Daywear B.B Cream in Light

The easiest way to determine what range is Daywear is that all the products are packaged in Green and they all smell like cucumber which is so refreshing. Daywear is aimed at customers starting to see the first signs of ageing. I think its important to start all this young, as once you get older the damage is irreversible.

I first started using the Daywear Moisturiser six months ago and they purchased the Idealist and the new B.B Cream.


- Using the Moisturiser first you don't need too much of it and just massage it into the areas you think you need it most. A little goes a long way. This is the base for your foundation and you should always use a moisturiser day and night as it will keep your skin hydrated and protect your pore from being clogged by make up.

- Second is your serum, which is the Idealist. I went for the Even Skintone Illuminator. This is still a fairly new product on counter and works perfect with your moisturiser. Its got Triple-Optic Technology which means it will illuminate the skin and you can see that in the photo where Ive swatched it on the back of my hand. Its a small shine which makes the skin glow naturally.

- Lastly I will put on the new B.B Cream. Now B.B creams have hit the make up industry by storm, originating from Asia. The Estee Lauder one comes in two colours, light and medium, and is a thin texture which you car wear alone or underneath make up. I tend to wear it underneath makeup as it sets the foundation and makes foundation last longer. You dont neccessarily have to usethis all over your face unless you were just wearing it on its own. Its a light coverage and amazing if you have good skin.

After all that your ready to apply make up knowing that your skin is being cared for. I will review these products individually as well and go into more detail of what they do and how Ive found them.
