#promptchall emily - skin care routine

Hi everyone! I'm Emily and I blog over at One Way Beauty. This is my first post for Naomi's prompt challenge and it is my skincare routine. For reference, I have oily, acne-prone skin with occasional dry patches. 
My morning skincare routine is pretty basic as I have to leave early for school and am usually in a mad rush! I start off with the Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash which leaves my skin soft and smooth. I then tone my skin with the Garnier Pore purifying toner, followed by the YON-KA Pamplemousse Moisturiser, which is a great base for make up and smells great!
My night time skincare routine starts off with make up removal. My favourite eye make up remover is The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover because it removes make up so easily and I've been using it for years. I then use the Purity Conditioning Cleansing Lotion on a cotton pad to remove face make up before cleansing. My night time cleanser of choice is the Super Facialist by Una Brennan Tea Flower Deep Clean Purifying Cleansing Wash.
After cleansing I use the same toner as I do in the morning - the Garnier Pore purifying toner. I've only been using this for a couple of weeks but I find that it is great for minimising pores and reducing oil. I then use the Purity Regenerating Overnight moisturiser which is gentle and great for sensitive skin. I use The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment quite often too because it controls oil brilliantly.
These are the 3 products which I use regularly but not on a daily basis. I use the Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips once a week or when the blackheads on my nose get bad. I love these as they're so effective - the proof is on the strip when you remove it (disgusting I know!). Every few days I use my favourite exfoliator, the Purity Facial Exfoliator, because it's gentle but effective at exfoliating the skin. Whenever my skin's feeling bad, I use the Crabtree & Evelyn Rose Essence Clay Deep Cleansing Mask.

So that was my first #promptchall post! I hope you enjoyed it. Remember that you can vote for your favourite posts after the 29th of January! Thank you Naomi for letting me post on your blog!
