Updated Skincare Routine - Zeena Xena // A Lifestyle Blog

Tuesday, 11 August 2015 London, UK

How often do you find it hard to come across daily skin combination that leaves your skin feeling clean, nourished and spotless? All the time right? Yup I've found it super hard to find the right combination of products to suit my skin. 
How happy would you be to know that I have found the perfect routine for all skin types, that will do no harm to your bank balance? Super happy right?! Without further ado, let me introduce the amazing products I've been using on a daily basis. 

Dove Beauty Cream Bar - £2.69* x 4
Now, I've been using this soap for ages. I just love it - it's been a part of my routine for a while but for some reason I just hadn't purchased this for a few months. I think it could be due to the fact that I was over-using face washes, however this is back in my life and routine, helping my skin to remain cleansed, smooth and fresh smelling.  

Garnier Micellar Water - £3.33* 400ml
So I did a review on this a few months ago which can be found here. I use this after I've come out of the shower to cleanse & refresh my skin. I also use this to remove dirt & makeup as it works like a magnet doing so (one of the best makeup removers especially for sensitive skin), I cant wait to purchase the full size!

Olay Essentials - £5.99* 200ml
I have to thank my mum for this one, she's been raving about this product for a number of years. Again, I use this on my face (& neck) in the morning, applying about one 'squeeze' onto a cotton pad. Olay has been used by women all over the world to help improve skin texture, adds a healthy glow and quenches thirsty skin. This has really helped improve my skin in the way it look and feels, I definitely recommend giving this a purchase.

Vita Coco Coconut Oil - £4.99* 250ml
As if I couldn't fall in love with this brand any more. They've only just gone and bought out a coconut oil which is cold pressed. I'm pretty sure you know all about the benefits of coconut oil and it's amazingness so I'll save you the dreaded extra long paragraph haha. Again, I use this before bed to hydrate my skin and even use to remove excess makeup such as mascara (especially when I've applied a lot). I have one another big tub of this goodness especially for cooking & oil pulling - definitely one of my favourite products of 2015. 

Savlon Antiseptic Cream - £2.18* 30g
Now I don't use this on a daily basis as you know antiseptics can be quite harsh on the skin, however I do like to use this cream on the odd spot that pops up (pun). The antiseptic kills bacteria, helps fight infection and decreases the size of the spot just with one use, so the next time you get a large zit on your face - Savlon will save your life! 

I hope this post helps those of you out there wanting to change your skincare routine, comment below if you'll be purchasing any of the products mentioned. 


  1. Your skin is SO flawless so I kind of feel like buying everything in this blogpost! I'll definitely have to try the Olay Essentials x

    TR's Thoughts

  2. Interesting that you have Oil of Olay in there. You don't hear of people using it anywhere near as much and yet a previous generation swore by it. I used it for years in my late teens/early 20s but haven't used it now for much about the same length of time. You've made me consider using it again though!

  3. In order to take more skincare utilize the best quality bathing products to increase the beauty when you walk in baths. Even the sugar scrub crush body Scrub has become a staple in my bathroom and I repurchase on many occasions. It cleans up the whole body and helps in removing the germs after bathing.
