Hello lovely people. I know I've been somewhat MIA these past couple of weeks (I'm so sorry!) but University work has amped up a gear and everything seemed to come at once, but I'm back with my most highly requested post. If you follow me on Twitter (if you don't, I'll forgive you this once), you might recall I did a poll (who doesn't love a good Twitter poll!?) for what you guys wanted to see next on Oh So Maddie, and a Skin Care routine came up top.
So here I bring to you my favourite skincare trio from Espa.

Ordinarily, my skin generally behaves quite nicely, but it is very sensitive and I flare up with most products. A lot of people rely on Simple for their sensitive skin, but even that brand makes me all red and splotchy and it is not a good look. 
I don't suffer too much with my skin, but if I'm stressed (which, to be honest, is 90% of the time), I come out with various angry looking spots and my only saving grace is Espa.


ESPA Balancing Foam Cleanser
I start by removing my makeup with dampened cotton pads soaked in Micellar Water, followed by my Balancing Foam Cleanser. This gorgeously foamy cleanser is soap free and very gentle. Whilst being soft and gentle, it also removes makeup really well, leaving skin clear and congestion free, perfect for stressed-spotty-breakouts. 
Not only does it work wonders, it also smells divine, with hints of Coconut, Yucca, Mandarin, Olive Oil and Sugar Beet. It is decadent, rich and perfect for washing the day away.


ESPA Herbal Spafresh
Next, I pat dry my skin, and soak pre-dampened cotton pads with my Balancing Herbal Spafresh. This toner is highly refreshing and leaves skin feeling super clean and fresh. It is perfect for taming breakouts as it contains Witch Hazel and Elderflower and Peppermint leaves skin feeling revived and clear. Whilst being refreshing and prepping the skin for moisturiser, it is not overly drying and really leaves you with that fresh faced feeling.



ESPA 24-Hour Balancing Moisturiser
Now, my absolute favourite skin care product of them all: my 24-Hour Balancing Moisturiser. This product is on my holy-grail-can't-live-without list. It doesn't feel anything like any other moisturiser I've ever used. It is has an almost gel-like consistency without being sticky. It is lightweight, but intensely moisturising and I feel so revived whenever I use it. It balances the oils in my skin and calms down any areas of breakout or redness, and leaves my skin feeling so revitalised. It smells divine too; Lavender and Chamomile soothe and calm skin, White Thyme balances and Lemon and Moss protect and moisturise. It provides instant and deep moisturise without clogging or leaving skin feeling heavy. It tops my can't-live-without list every time, and if you're thinking of investing in any ESPA products, this would be my very first recommendation.


I hope you liked this post! Let me know what you want to see next time on Oh So Maddie.
(P.S: Thank you for all your love and support as usual)

Lots of Love,
