Evening Skincare Routine


I spoke about my morning skincare routine here so it was only right that I told you what my evening skincare entails. Similarly to my morning routine things are kept pretty simple but the hydration levels are stepped up a notch as well as adding in some exfoliation. 

Cleansing wise I use a micellar water to remove the majority of my face makeup, I'm currently using the L'oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Water however I do have the Garnier one lined up for after this one has been used up. Eye makeup wise things get removed with the Nivea Daily Essentials Makeup Remover which is a bi-phase eye makeup remover that works wonders, even on my waterproof mascara. Then I head to the bathroom where my cleansing routine continues. The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter is my choice of thicker deeper cleanser, it's one I'd highly recommend if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the Clinique Take The Day Off Balm. Rubbed onto the face this turns into a thick oil then I simply remove with a warm flannel. 

Back to my skincare stash I go and grab my La Roche-Posay Micro Exfoliating Toner, another cheaper alternative I've found while sorting my skincare - this time to the Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Toner. This is a bit more stingy but helps to make my skin clear and clean. A quick first layer of hydrating comes in the form of the Avene Eau Thermale Spray followed by the same eye cream as the morning, The Body Shop Aloe Eye Defence. As I have dry/normal skin I like to add a boost of moisture to work its magic overnight and boy does the Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-in-Oil deliver. I use three drops of this and although this bottle is on it's way out I already have a backup raring to go. Then I simply hop into bed and go to sleep spend ages on social media! 

What does your evening routine look like?

  4. You have such a lovely blog, and your photos are so professional-looking! I've just read back through lots of your posts (this is how far I got!) and have definitely got to follow you now to keep up with your uni tales and see your beautiful pics! Hope your first term at uni has been good - I did nursing and it's always difficult doing a course which requires placements, as I found that a lot of my friends doing other degrees didn't quite understand the workload.
    Anyway, hope you have a very happy new year. x
