My Night Time Skin Care Routine



Make up Removal Cleanse and Second Cleanse //
If I'm feeling a little lazy, I'll just use a few cotton pads saturated with Bioderma Sensiblo (£14) to remove make up, alongside Body Shop's Eye Make Up Remover, (£8). Together, these are the best products I've found for removing make up effectively, and they're both products I'll constantly repurchase. Sometimes I'll follow with a second cleanse using either Emma Hardies Cleansing Balm (£34), or Decleor's Aroma Cleanse (£20). 
On a 'good' night though, I'll use either Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm or Origins Clean Energy (£21to remove my makeup, followed by Decleor Aroma Cleanser as a second cleanse. I try to mix it up regularly, but I do tend to stick to this little group of cleansing products. 

Clarifying Toner  //
Clarins Brightening Exfoliating Toner (£20) is something I often use in the morning too, but I tend to be more religious with it in the evening, swiping it across my face and d├ęcolletage to prep and 'prime' my skin ready for the rest of the products in my routine. This is one of my all time favourite skincare products, 

Moisture Boost //
I've mentioned Hydraluron (£25) a few times before, and I've always noticed a different if I forget to use it for a few days, so its pretty much a must have for me now. Full of hyaluronic acid, it helps products to really sink into the skin. 

Eye Brightener //
I've been using Transformulas Eye Lightening Gel (£25*), for about a month now, and although its not really made much of a difference to the darkest, inner corner of my eyes, I have noticed that its helped around the majority of the eye, and I don't feel the need to use so much concealer in the morning. Its light, non-tacky, and nice to apply with the wand - I've been using this in place of standard eye cream, and I'll happily continue to use it - Most eye products give me milia, so this is a winner!

Serum //
Pevonia Propolis Concentrate (£53) is one of my all time, favourite products, and I'm amazed it hasn't had more exposure. This stuff calms my skin down, eases redness (doubly useful during breakouts), and just feels lovely. I try not to use it every night, as I'm terrified of my skin getting used to it, but I do adore it.  When I don't use that, I use the thicker, Ren Omega 3 (£34), in place of Pevonia's Propolis Concentrate, although sometimes I go all out and layer both.

Nuxe Creme Fraiche De Beaute (£17) is a fuss free moisturiser that smells like it should irritate my skin, though actually its super gentle. It makes my skin feel instantly smooth, and its the finishing step to lock in all the goodness I've previously applied!
