Morning Skincare Routine

I've been meaning to do an updated skincare routine for so long but I hadn't settle on a group of products that I really liked. I've been sticking to this routine for a good few months now and my skin seems to be liking it so I thought it was about time I shared. My skintype is definitely more combination, I still get oily in my t-zone but my skin can also feel dehydrated easily and I suffer from a few breakouts and pigmentation from having acne.
Morning Skincare Routine
Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing Vitamin Enriched Toner
Starting with cleanser, I always have to wash my face properly first thing in the morning. I like something basic and gentle. The one i've been really liking is The Body Shop Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser. It's a cream cleanser that leaves the skin feeling clean but not dry. I then follow this with the Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing Vitamin Enriched Toner. I don't think this does anything amazing, I just like how fresh it makes my skin feel in the morning. It's has no alcohol, colorants or perfumes in it which is an added bonus.
La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo [+]
I don't feel the need for a heavy eye cream in the morning, instead I prefer something that is a gel which is refreshing. The one i've been using is the Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Gel. I don't think this does anything ground braking but it feels nice and cooling. I'm still looking for a good morning eye cream, so if anyone has any recommendations I would love to know. In my t-zone, on breakouts or areas where I have some scarring I love to use the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo [+]. This is a light gel/cream so is perfect to use in the morning as it is light on the skin and works well underneath makeup.
The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream
For moisturiser again I look for something light that is good under makeup. The one i've been using for a long time now which is The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream. Although this is a cream it does have a bit of a gel texture to it. You don't need a lot of product yet it feels really hydrating and soothing on the skin. This really helps to stop my skin feeling dehydrated.

So that is my current morning skincare routine, I will be sharing my evening skincare routine as well which has a few more product in it that are hydrating. What products do you use in your morning skincare routine?
