My New Skincare Routine

My New Skincare Routine

Hello, lovelies! Hopefully, most of you have still stuck to your New Year’s resolutions… I may have broken one or two of mine already… oops! As it’s still winter and the crappy weather continues, I thought I would share with you my new skincare routine.

Recently, I have noticed that my skin has changed quite a lot. I used to suffer from really dry, super sensitive skin, so I would only ever use a basic face wash and moisturiser to avoid any chance that my skin would react! Now, my skin requires much more attention, (and also requires me to stop being lazy!) and many of you recommended that I try Bodyshop’s skincare ranges so I decided to drop into the store and get some help! They were super helpful and explained that I could mix and match some of the ranges to suit my skin needs!

This is what they recommended, enjoy!


Bodyshop Seaweed Gel Wash

Seaweed Cleansing Gel Wash – Combination/Oily Skin

This gel-based, oil-free cleansing wash helps rebalance your moisture levels and removes impurities, leaving a shine-free matte finish. It leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean, fresh and actually smells amazing! It’s so good at balancing my oils out and controlling problem areas like my t-zone. It does leave my skin a little red but that’s to be expected but apart from that, it doesn’t irritate my skin at all, which is a bonus!


Bodyshop Aloe Calming Toner

Aloe Vera Calming Toner – Sensitive Skin

This toner primes and refreshes your skin, removing any leftover impurities that the cleanser missed. My skin feels calmer and soothed, especially after using the gel wash! However, I did notice that my skin felt quite dry afterwards, but as I always use a moisturiser it’s fine!


Bodyshop Vitamin E Moisturiser

Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream – Dry Skin

This rich, non-greasy moisturiser protects, nourishes and locks in moisture for long-lasting hydration. If my skin is feeling particularly dry, this moisturiser is a life saver – it leaves my skin feeling sooooo smooth and lasts all day! It’s a thick cream and absorbs quickly so I find I need to apply quite a bit to get full coverage.


Bodyshop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser

Tea Tree Pore Minimiser – Oily/Blemished Skin

This cream instantly smooths and mattifies skin, minimising pores, leaving skin refined and shine-free. Not only does it improve the look of my pores, it also helps reduce my blemishes AND I’ve noticed my skin gets less oily throughout the day! This might be my favourite purchase, plus a little goes a long way!


Bodyshop Tea Tree Night Lotion

Tea Tree Night Lotion – Oily/Blemished Skin

This gel-lotion provides light hydration for blemished skin throughout the night, whilst controlling excess oils and helping fade blemishes. I never used to use any skin products at night, I just used to remove my make-up with micellar water – that’s it… now I’ve realised how important it is to look after my skin, even at night! It does leave my skin feeling quite tight and dry but I just use some of the Vitamin E moisturiser afterwards. The smell of tea tree is also quite strong but it’s a really good product so I can see past that!


I know that I can’t just rely on products to improve my skin, so I am also making a conscious effort to drink more water and eat healthier! But so far all of these products are working well, I know it can take up to 8 weeks to notice all the benefits of new skincare products so maybe I’ll do an update in a few weeks! Fingers crossed I get great skin soon!

    What a lovely Skincare Routine, I was also recommended The Body Shop and I can say how great they are! I think I need to have a look at their other ranges. I currently use a lot from their Tea Tree Range, and it works wonders for me!

    I absolutely adore The Body Shops skincare! I use the Seaweed gel wash and the Vitamin E moisture cream every day, the Vitamin E cream has changed the softness of my skin like crazy, even my brother uses it religiously too now! I also love the Tea Tree anti-imperfection solution too for any blemishes!

    I absolutely love The Body Shop skincare! I use the aloe toner every single day, and adding it to my routine completely transformed my skin. x

    I’ve always wanted to try some skincare stuff from The Body Shop as I’ve heard nothing but amazing things! I’ve been recommended the Tea Tree range as it’s meant to be really good for pores and blackheads which is my main skin problem. I’ll have to try a couple of things maybe, and see what works for me! x


    • everythingchessie January 16, 2018 / 8:19 pm

      You really should! I have that problem too and it’s really improved my skin and reduced my blackheads!x

  7. Gemma January 15, 2018 / 10:27 pm

    The Body Shop Seaweed Wash sounds perfect for my skin!! I’m definitely going to check that out next time I’m passing x

  8. Leslie January 16, 2018 / 7:18 am

    I love this range! Everything just sounds so natural and cleansing for the skin! I definitely just read a few things that I really want to try.

    • everythingchessie January 16, 2018 / 8:20 pm

      They are all really great products! Let me know what you think if you ever buy anything!

  9. Julia January 17, 2018 / 1:41 pm

    These products sound so good! I feel like I’m in a deep need of changing up my skincare routine, but I never knew what to do and what to change. The Vitamin E moisturiser is definitely on my list now! And the pore minimiser. The two products sound like they could find a permanent home in my bathroom cabinet!

    Aside from their bath/shower ranges, I don’t think I’ve ever tried Bodyshop skincare – definitely want to give the tee tree pore minimiser a go! Does it leave your skin feeling a little tacky or smooth? X p.s. loved the photos and content in this!

    • everythingchessie January 30, 2018 / 3:48 pm

      Thank you lovely! It leaves my skin feeling super soft and smooth, definitely not tacky!x

    This sounds so good! Such a good routine! I’m in love with body shops seaweed range, It’s nearly finished ☹️ Everything else sounds amazing I need to go to my local body shop ASAP!xx

    The Body Shop is one of my go to brands when it comes to skincare! Their tea tree range is incredible and personally, I find that all of the ranges are good for sensitive skin :)x
