My Skincare Routine - Fave Products

Hello my loves! 
How was your Sunday? 
Mine went by in a blink of an eye but luckily I don't go back to work until Wednesday *blessed*
Today I'm talking about my favorite skincare products, so let's go!

I don't wear make up everyday, but when I do I like to remove it with the Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter or with the Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover, sometimes if my eye makeup is very stubborn I will even use both. 
But no matter which one I use I never leave them on my face. If you have dry skin you can probably manage to just wipe it off with a flannel or cotton pad but I don't like the feeling it leaves on my  combination to oily skin so I always have to wash my face afterwards and my favorite product to do so is the La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Gel. It makes the right amount of foam and cleans my skin of all the excess oils without drying it out, and it's my choice every morning too. 

I have been trying to incorporate a Toner in my skincare routine but most of the time I'm too lazy and skip ahead to eye cream and moisturizer.

I recently ran out of my favorite eye cream and sadly it was discontinued so I had to replace it and I've been currently using the Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream, which is okay but doesn't cover all my needs.. I'll be looking out for an alternative slightly more helpful with my dark circles, any suggestions?
As for moisturizer, on good days I use Lierac's Hydragenist Gel-Cream in the morning and Galenic's Nectalys Night Cream in the evening (it was also discontinued, I'm using up the last samples I had - so sad to think I'm gonna need a replacement for this soon!).
Both these products are first wrinkles prevention... I mean I'm 25, not going any younger *snif* and I love how they smell and feel on the skin, however, whenever my skin isn't cooperating and I break out for some reason I switch them up for the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (+) and it usually helps me out pretty well. 

And that's my daily skincare routine!

But if you follow my social media or have seen my previous haul posts you must know I love face masks, and usually on the weekends I like to pamper my face with one (or multiple, who am I kidding?). 
I love trying new ones, sheet or cream form masks, and lately I've been using the L'Oréal Pure Clay Masks as well as the H&M Beauty ones, which honestly I prefer and there are a ton of different ones to pick from.

What about you? Do you like to have spa at home days? Which is your holy grail face product? 
Let me know down in the comments!
