Following my night time skincare routine, I thought it would be good to follow up with my 3 step day time skincare routine. When I do have time in the morning I would cleanse my face, but admittedly I would often skip this step - not being able to work from home means I am time poor!
Today I want to show you guys my 3 step skincare using Eles Cosmetics Skincare - Eles Cosmetics is a salon quality brand - with a range of skincare and mineral makeup.
STEP 1: ELES TRANSFORMATION CLEANSING OIL
When I have time in the morning I might go in with a cleansing oil to ensure all traces of dirt and grime is removed from my skin. This is not always possible on a working day, but I try!
I have tried a couple of different cleansing oil and Eles Transformation Cleansing Oil is probably the best cleansing oil I have used thus far. It's difficult to notice this on your face but when I swatched some Smashbox liquid lipsticks on my arm I had a LOT of difficulty removing it, I used hand soap, regular facial cleanser, facial scrub, shampoo, body wash.... everything and I still had huge lipstick swatches across my arm. A lightbulb moment shined through and I used a small amount of Eles Cleansing oil and the stubborn lipstick melted away. That was the moment I decided that I really shouldn't be going to bed after wearing makeup without using this cleansing oil, I realised the amount of residual makeup that may be stuck in my pores that is not visible to the naked eye.
Some of the other cleansing oil I have tried were difficult to wash off, Eles cleansing oil is non-greasy and can be rinsed under warm water - however, I ALWAYS double cleanse.
This is a transformation cleansing oil because the oil turns into a milky colour after coming into contact with water.
STEP 2: ELES OVER NNIGHT REPAIR FAICAL OIL
This is a beautiful light weight facial oil that you can use both day and night. It possess a light fruity scent that is very pleasant (personally I prefer to use it in the morning because it really wakes me up and makes me feel refreshed!). I usually use a couple of drops during the day and it is absorbed fairly quickly, I tend to use a lot more in the evening and you will need to wait for the oil to be absorbed.
If I use this at night time, I would often skip moisturiser cos this does such a great job even though I know I should be! I especially like this oil around my under eye area for a boost of treatment when I don't have eye cream handy.
STEP 3: ELES LUMINOUS DEFENCE BRIGHTENING DAY PROTECTION SPF 30
The last and final step is ALWAYS day cream with SPF 30+ despite the weather or season.
This is definitely a luminous day cream, I personally feel that this is designed best for dry skin in winter as it may appear a oily for those with already oily skin or when used in summer. Although I like to use a full pump of cream for my entire face (which is usually too much anyway).
Have you tried anything from Eles Cosmetics before?
