Morning Skincare Routine: February 2017

Hello lovely readers,

As you all know I’ve decided to use predominately Ultraceuticals skincare products and I’ve been loving the results! Today I wanted to share my morning skincare routine and the following week I’ll share what products I use in the evening.

Disclaimer; I have oily to combination skin. My skin concerns are blemishes and texture.


Ultraceuticals Ultra Balance Gel Cleanser*

This is a really lovely gel cleanser and smells divine! Its only lightly fragrant and I can’t quite pin point the smell, is it cucumber or green apple? In terms of the texture its quite a thick gel but really nourishing. Its gentle enough to use in the morning and leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed.

Ultraceuticals Ultra Clear Treatment Lotion*

This is my morning treatment product targeted at minimising the amount of breakouts I have and helping any blemishes heal quicker. To start off I used this every second morning before moisturiser and as my skin built up its tolerance I used it every day. To start off with the smell is disgusting, I don’t know how to describe it but Bae says it smells like popcorn which I disagree with because I love the smell of popcorn. In terms of texture, it feels like a moisturiser. After I’ve applied the lotion to my face, my face can look a bit oily. At first I was alarmed but it didn’t actually make my skin oiler throughout the day.

Ultraceuticals Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF 30 Mattifying*

This is a two in one product, it’s a moisturiser and an SPF. I love that its moisturising without being thick and heavy like other moisturisers. It also doesn’t have a white cast, bonus! This moisturiser is also great under makeup and doesn’t make me oily but isn’t too matiffying as well.

The star product of my morning skincare routine is the Ultra Clear Treatment Lotion*. While the smell is disgusting, I can deal with it because the results are awesome! When I first started using this my skin was breaking out and I felt that this lotion got all the gunk out quicker and healed the blemishes so much faster.

  1. Loved this review Rachel. I’ve just starting using this brand too, literally as of yesterday. I had a treatment at one the salons in Melbourne and I’m already seeing and loving my results. I feel like the cleanser has a very light citrus scent.

  2. I’ve never tried Ultraceuiticals but maybe I should. I do love double duty sunscreens like you though. I still use a moisturiser but my Mecca sunscreen is so smoothing and hydrating that I skip a primer when I use it. Great review 🙂

  3. Great review, lovely! I need to try Ultraceuticals, I’ve heard such good things. I do prefer products which have a nice scent to it, but understand that sometimes it’s just not possible for a product to work effectively. And I’d much rather something work well!
