Skincare: Current Routine 2018


I think I have now officially done more skincare posts than anything here on Loads of Lifestyle.. Skincare has been super important to me for the last 2 years or so, to the point where I have mostly packed up my beauty room.. Only using the bare essentials (and not even on a daily basis!)

My skincare products have morphed from using so many different products from different brands, to almost exclusively using only a single brand. If you follow my Instagram (you really should... @loadsoflifestyle) you will know about my love affair with Medik8.

"Medik8 skincare products & treatments are developed and formulated by a team of biochemists and pharmacologists in an ISO audited, specially-built research facility located in London, UK. Our serums are handmade in small quantity to ensure freshness potency of actives. Medik8 skincare products & treatments are specifically formulated to target: skin-ageing, skin blemishes, redness, pigmentation and dryness. The 100% professional-only range was launched in 2008."

As I said before, I am only using a select few non-Medik8 products because I know they work for my skin, and work well together with my Medik8 products! This may sound silly and totally obvious, but products within a brand are designed to work with each other. Whereas other products from different brands may cancel out any benefits of that other item (does that make sense?). So sticking to a brand-specific routine may be better for your skin (please note - I am not a skincare professional, I have just found this is what has worked best for my skin).

  1. I'm definitely a multi-brand girl with my skincare! I love the Mario Badescu Rosewater Facial Spray, it's so lovely :)

  2. Medik8 sounds so good, I have a few friends who use it now and I have to try it! I've had my eye on the Mario Badescu Rosewater Mist recently though, everyone has been loving it lately.

  4. I am such a big Medik8 fan! Their new sheet masks are AMAZING and I swear they’re one of the few sheet masks I see instant results with. I’ve also used their blemish control pads, which are sooo good. I think I have the cleanser lying around my drawer somewhere that I need to try!

  6. I'm more of a multi brand kind of a person when it comes to skincare, I can never really find a lot of products I like from just one brand. I love love using Bioderma as well!
