Sunday Skin Detox

Hi Everyone!

This past Sunday I decided I was in major need of a super intense facial. I have been soo lazy the past two months and have basically abandoned any kind of 'extra' thing to do to my skin like using an exfoliator or face mask. Awful I know! My skin was feeling it as it felt extra congested and gross and I thought enough is enough it must happen tonight! I asked on twitter if anyone would like a post, seeing what I used and quite a few of you said you would so here it is!


Step 1 - I always start off my cleansing. I whipped my Clarisonic Mia out as I haven't used this for ages. I'm going to start using it again as I don't want it going to waste, the only reason I stopped was because it ran out of battery and I was too lazy to charge it (oh the shame!) I used it with Philosophy Purity as it's the only creamy cleanser I have. If you have recommendations for cleansers for acne prone skin to use with the clarisonic please let me know!
Step 2 - Next step I take is to exfoliate and get all the grime out of my pores and remove the dead skin cells. I am enjoying using the Amie New Leaf exfoliating polish. It smells of mango as it's creamy with the beads spread evenly it is very easy to work with. I may do a full review, so let me know if you would like to see it :)
Step 3 - I then went on to use the first face mask of the evening, Origins Clear Improvement. I don't think it's as great as it's hyped up to be I really can't see that much of a difference however I do still like to use this and it basically just pulls all the dirt out from your skin leaving it a lot less congested.
Step 4 - It was then time to use my favourite face mask ever. Yes ever. No other than Soap and Glory the fab pore facial peel. A little goes a long way with this, you massage it in then leave it on for 15 mins for a deep clean. When I remove this my skin looks radiant, clearer and MY PORES ARE REFINED. Pores are one of my skin hates and for this mask to make them look better is amazing. This is also hydrating and makes my skin so soft. I would repurchase this over and over and would recommend it to anyone!

Then I finished off with some moisturiser and I was done! My skin felt and looked so much better for it so I'm really glad I decided to do this 'detox' rather than just put a face mask on and be done with it. I think I will be doing this or something similar every Sunday as it's a great relaxing way to end the week and get your skin looking lovely for the upcoming week!

What do you think? Do you like to give your skin a bit of a detox now and then, what do you use?

  1. I love the Amie exfoliating polish. The smell is gorgeous. I wish they'd sell them in more places though, I used to buy mine from Superdrug but can't seem to even find it there anymore.

    1. Me too! I can only find it in a department store. I hope somewhere like boots start selling it as I really want to try more from them but always forget when I'm near somewhere that actually sells it! x

  9. Ha made me laugh when you said you couldn't be bothered charging your Mia! That's exactly what I would do! Haven't used a face mask for like 4 weeks just because I'm being too lazy with my skin :/ Need to start my routine properly again! x
