Skincare For The Lazy Girl

Sunday, 11 February 2018



Okay, I'll be the first to hold my hands up here. I am completely rubbish when it comes to my skincare routine. And by rubbish, I mean lazy. I never remember to exfoliate, and you can forget eye creams, who has time for that?!

Yes, I know. Bad blogger alert. But hear me out. I'm up at 6am for work every morning, and I am in no way a morning person. And then by the time that I'm getting ready for bed, I'm so ready to crash that standing and spending ages on my skin is the last thing I want to do. Weekends are the time for a skin pamper for me, and that's when I give my face some serious TLC. But during the week, I'd rather have an extra ten minutes in bed, if I'm being honest.

Sound like you?

In celebration of the lazy girl, I've put together my easy-peasy skincare routine that will probably take you under five minutes - perfect for those of us who just can't do mornings!

Step One: Remove Make Up

There's nothing other than Garnier Micellar Water for removing make up for me. I've been using this for a good couple of years now and I just love how easy it is. Pop a bit on a cotton wool pad, rub at your face and hope for the best. Perfect for when you've had a long day and you're already half-asleep. Nine times out of ten, this tactic works perfectly. 

Step Two: Cleanse

YES, PEOPLE. YOU NEED TO USE A CLEANSER AFTER REMOVING MAKE UP, NO MATTER HOW LAZY YOU ARE. Luckily, there are some amazing cleansers out there which require minimal effort. My current favourite is Naobay Equilibria Gel to Milk Cleanser. This stuff is fab for bringing problem skin back into balance, and works wonders for my ridiculously dry skin. Simply apply, lather until it becomes a milk, and rinse. Super soft skin, no work. 

Step Three: Facial Oil

I LOVE a good facial oil. They are incredible at softening and hydrating your skin, without much effort. Apply, dab, done. You may have seen me raving about my Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil in my January Glossybox post, and the good news is I'm still just as in love with it. It smells incredible, and is so gentle and nourishing from the second that you apply it. And it only takes two seconds!

Step Four: Moisturise

A step never ever to be missed, I'm afraid. My collection of moisturisers seems to be growing by the second, and I have so many that I love. The one that I'm currently using the most is Nip + Fab Kale Fix Moisturiser, because it just does an amazing job of sorting out dry skin quickly. 

Are you like me, a lazy girl when it comes to skincare? Or do you love spending time on your skin every day?

Love,
Sian xo

  1. I am the lazy girl you speak of in this post. Ugh I hate doing skincare - I feel like I’m wasting my time when I could be doing something more productive haha. I love Micellar water though, it’s so versatile and easy.

  3. Being a spoonie I'm a massive lazy girl when it comes to skincare and I'm so happy to see what you've mentioned three of my favourite ever products in this blog post; the Naobay's Equilibria Gel to Milk Cleanser, Dr Botanicals' Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil and Nip + Fab's Kale Fix Moisturiser. I used to use the Garnier Micellar Water but stopped once I went cruelty-free, I now use the Nivea Micellar Water which is so much better so I highly recommend trying it for yourself one day babe. Thank you for sharing 🌸✨
