Guide to Healthy Skin with Drugstore Products

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Hi everyone,
Recently I've been loving my skincare routine. My skin wasn't great for a while so I went to the drugstore to buy skincare products and thought I'd review them for you. This is a relatively cheap and easy skincare routine that I use every day and night regardless of whether my skin is good or not at that time. I researched a lot into skincare routines and all of the ones I found were very expensive and time-consuming when you can get a much easier one. Anyway, this is the one I found and it works just as well, is much less time-consuming and a lot more inexpensive. All of the products talked about can be purchased in drugstores.

Firstly, I use this Neutrogena All-in-1 Acne Control cleanser, it is my favourite cleanser and trust me, I've tried a lot of cleansers. I really work it into my skin, especially those places where I may have more acne and then wash it off thoroughly.

Then when I'm on holiday, I use my Simple Protecting Light Moisturiser which I like because it has SPF so you don't need to worry about suncreams and can be assured that it will protect your face from the sun. Otherwise, I use my L'Oreal Skin Perfection Moisturiser.

Now that my face is clean, I use my All-in-1 Acne Control. An alternative that i use is the Decleor Spot Treatment but that isn't as cheap. I rub a very light coat over any blemishes I may have and any areas where I usually get them because what I like about this spot treatment is that it prevents future spots. This is a miracle worker, honestly, I had a huge spot in the centre of my forehead and within 2 days, it had completely vanished thanks to this routine. 

I only use that once a day because if you use it too often, it can cause dryness, during the meantime I like to use this Skin Clear Blemsish Corrector by boots. I bought this a while ago and it was extremely inexpensive. I didn't really think it would work for the money I paid for it and when I opened it I realised that really all it is is tea tree oil. Despite this, it works very well especially with the other products in this skincare routine. 

This is my daily skincare routine but I would also recommend using Freeman Face Masks especially the peel-off one because i find that on bad skin days, those things work wonders. 

I'm really happy with my skin now thanks to my skincare routine and I couldn't recommend it enough. I find that really, I would rather have a great skincare routine than makeup routine because having good skin can make you have so much confidence and I've found that now that I've found a great skincare routine, its saved me lots of money in the long run because I don't use as much makeup now because I really don't feel I need as much. I would definitely try and recommend perfecting your skin routine before purchasing lots of makeup to cover up blemishes because it can save you a lot of money.

If you try this routine, let me know how it works for you! Email me at or comment below. Thank you for reading.
