My current Night time Skin care routine.

6 September 2013

Hello lovelies, Happy Friday! Today I'm going to share with you my nightly skin care routine I hope you all have a lovely weekend.



I bet your all thinking two micellar waters?! Yup, this is why. My Bioderma has been a life saver for me and a massive favorite since I bought it but as its hard to get I thought I need something similar and I really think the L'oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar solution is the match. But it doesn't tick one box for me, my eyes! My eyes are very sensitive and I feel that this makes my eyes feel a little stinging sensation not massively but enough to make me feel a little uncomfortable. So as I'm on my last bit of Bioderma I have been using this as an eye make up remover and my L'oreal as an all over face make up remover. 

Bioderma is amazing for removing all your make up but like I said it's quite hard to get hold of and can be quite pricey, L'oreal's match seems to do the same jobs so why not trade it in? It's personal preferences more than anything but I love it apart from my eyes. I am on a search for the perfect eye make up remover for sensitive eyes if any one would like to share with me. I find them both cleaning my skin very well and there so much better for you than face wipes. Face wipes dry your skin out so badly! Try to steer clear from then if you can.


Once I have cleaned most of my make up of with my micellar water I scrub my face with a good old face scrub. One of my favorites being this Soap and Glory one. This is a 3 in 1 face wash that smoothes, cleans and scrubs. You only need the tiniest amount in your hands rub it into slightly damp skin and it lathers up greatly. It smells fresh and clean and that's exactly how my skin feels after I've used this. Really revitalizes my skin and should probably use it in the morning as it makes my skin feel alive. But even though this makes my skin feel uber soft and clean I always seem to double cleanse at night time.



I love this cleansing balm so much. Once I purchased it I wanted to immediately take all my make up of and use it! But as it is so rich and nourishing and lovely I wanted to use this after I removed all my make up to get the full effects of the product. The smell is out of this world its so beautiful, the oil in it makes my skin feel silky soft. It has an uplifting blend of moringa seeds, wild sea fennel, Vitamin E, orange, neroli, mandarin, jasmine and rose all beautiful ingredients to help look after your skin. Just the aroma of the product alone makes me feel like I'm in a spa. A lot of people have complained about the packaging of the product saying its cracked. Mine hasn't maybe I just look after it better but I quite like the packaging. Emma Hardie has been my favorite cleanser to use in a long while. As you can tell as I've hit pan, sad times.


Once I have double cleansed I tone my skin. I love this toner, it makes my skin feel so refreshed. Not only can you use this as a toner you can use it as a spritz through the day on top of your make up to feel revitalized and cool your face down. The fresh scent is lovely and keeps my skin feeling great.


After I have toned my skin I like to apply a little bit of this Caudalie oil before moisturising and as i have combination skin more on the dry side this evens my skin out a little, helps my dry bits over night feel soft and gentle. I quite like the distinct smell to this product it smells like rich product. You only need the tiniest bit so I think this will last me a while. It is so nourishing and you can use this all over your body, nails and hair but I mainly just use it on my face focusing on my dry areas.


This part of my routine I change up a little I haven't found a staple moisturiser I love yet! Although I like this product its not amazing. I really thought it would be with its 'dramatically different moisturizing lotion' label but I find it very watery based it does make my skin feel smoother and hydrating but I quite like a thick-ish moisturiser to sink into my skin over night. It's abit too lightweight for me to not feel like its doing the best job I still like it though and going to use it for a a bit longer to see how my skin feels. 

The rest of my products are what I use once or twice a week as my little beauty extras for that extra pampering and make my skin feel beautiful.


Origins - Modern Friction Natures Gentle Dermabrassion.
This is for the extra clean on your skin get all that mucky crap out of your pores. It's not massively seedy to feel too rough on your skin its just right, not to make you feel uncomfortable in any way. I really dislike the scent to this product but I don't let it bother me too much. My skin does feel so soft, smooth and clean after using this.

Lush - Mask Of Magnaminty Face and Back Face Mask.
I love this face mask, Its more for the acne prone skin type as it helps massively with spot prone skin and this is a life saver for me when those pesky blemishes pop up un-wantedly and unexpected! It clears most of my blemishes up and makes my skin feel rejuvenated. It has quite a strong minty scent to it but I kind of like that I also find it stings my skin a little but I like that because I know somethings working, it really does clear all my pores out and helps break my outbreaks from getting any worse.

Origins - Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask.  
The smell just wow, a fruity explosion under your nostrils, the most nourishing moisturiser I've ever used I would just love to use this every night but it is very rich. I love the feel of my skin in the morning once I have put this on over night its amazing. I still have some product on my face it sinks in so well and feels smoother, calmer, nourished, hydrated it just ticks every box! It has amazing ingredients inside natures best even including, Plant glycerin, Hyaluronic acid, Apricot kernol oil, Avocado oil, Mango butter and Japanese seaweed. You really would have to try this out to see how amazing it is, I really do love this. Well worth the price tag.

I hope you liked my skin care routine lovelies If you have one please post it in the comments below, or recommend me your favorite skin care products particularly for combination skin that would be great! Have a really lovely weekend.

  2. Hey good morning my friends I am share with with you some beauty tips. These tips help for your skin care. Wear sunscreen often and even on overcast days. Many times people don't expect to get a sunburn if the sun isn't fully visible, but that can be the worst kind of day. Also, try use sunscreen that is meant for faces to prevent breakouts. Find a cleanser that matches your complexion. You can find oil-free facial cleansers and special solutions meant for combination skin, oily skin, dry skin, and normal skin. Moisturize your skin, especially in the winter. If you get dry skin on a normal basis, find a moisturizer suited to your skin type. Don't touch your blemishes other than to gently cleanse and apply products meant to treat them. Apply a product containing 10% benzyl peroxide for good results. Remove your makeup before bed. Many of us don't do this, but makeup can clog your pores if you leave it on too long, causing skin irritation and pimples. Eat less chocolate. While it's not proven, avoiding chocolate around big events like wedding and graduations may help to prevent surprise breakouts. Drink more water. Water helps to flush the toxins from your body, so make sure you get enough water in your system daily. Remember, all things in moderation. Take good care of your body and your skin by trying not to indulge too much in salty snacks, alcoholic beverages, etc. Cleanse, Tone, Exfoliate, Moisturize. Practice a regular facial cleansing routine to keep your skin balanced and healthy. Try facial mud masques to soak up excess skin oils. If used once a week, you'll notice a true difference in the softness of your skin and a real decrease in the oils on the surface of your skin.
