The Basics
My skin is dry, sensitive and prone to eczema, the drier it is the more sensitive it is so its tricky to find products that work well for me. This routine is the best I have ever used so I thought I would share it and hopefully help you guys out there with sensitive & dry skin! Please let me know if you have any suggestions too!

The Cleansers
I use Bioderma first, I whack a bit on a cotton pad and use this to remove my mascara and most of my face makeup. This is great for sensitive skin but I find this a little too drying on its own.
 The cleansing balm is very creamy and nourishing, I actually find it too nourishing for my dry skin which is unusual. So, I use the balm cleanser first and follow up with the oil cleanser to get rid of the greasy layer the balm leaves. I use a warm flannel to remove both of these cleansers.
Both of these cleansers do contain fragrance which I would usually stray away from but they don't irritate my skin at all and are the best ones I have used (drug store and high end!).
The Toners
Usually I would then use the Clarins Exfoliating Toner which is bloody amazing, I apply some to a cotton pad and wipe it all over my face (full review here) Its so soothing and leaves my skin so smooth and soft. I love it and its a keeper in my routine. If my skin is a little bit sore or irritated then I will use the Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion instead just to give it a little break.

The Serums & Moisturisers
After waiting a minute or two for the toner to dry I then apply a little Hydraluron which is another favourite product of mine and a life saver for dry skin (full review here). Every 3 or 4 nights I will also treat my skin to a little Estee Lauder Night Repair Serum. This is a fantastic serum but I find it a little too much to use every night. I then finish off with my favourite moisturiser, the Avene Tolerance Extreme Cream. I've tried so many moisturisers in the past and I do sometimes stray from this but it always a big mistake and I go running back to it. Its not too heavy but its very moisturising and perfect for sensitive skin.
I hope this helps anyone out there with similar skin to mine! What's your favourite skin care product?
