After a recent video I made about how I treat my various skincare issues I had a few requests for an updated evening skincare routine.. so here it is. This is just an average day but things do differ occasionally depending if my skin is feeling dry or if I’m breaking out..
L’Oreal 3-in-1 Purifying Micellar Solution
I use this to remove my eye makeup but you could cleanse your whole face with it and I have in the past.. it works I just prefer to deep clean my skin at night
L’Oreal Purifying Gel Wash
I swear this is just a coincidence.. L’Oreal did not sponsor this post (however y’know.. if you’re watching L’Oreal *wink*) I first use this to remove my makeup and then use it again with my Clarisonic to exfoliate, it really foams up the second time around.
To be clear – this is not a necassary tool, you can buy little scrublets such as this that will exfoliate in a a similar way and still get the product foaming up in the same way. I love my Clarisonic but I think it’s really for those who are looking to invest in their skin (read:older gals, not necassarilly essential for teens) – there are also cheaper versions like this on the market which probably work the same way
Everyday Minerals Deep Kissing Buff & Shine Lip Scrub
This stuff smells a bit like a chocolate orange – but not in a good way. It does the job but I wouldn’t repurchase.. I will probably give LUSH’s Bubblegum lip scrub another go when this runs out
Holland & Barrett Tea Tree Oil
My skin can handle this but not everyone can apply essential oils directly to their skin so just be wary. It’s a great blemish treatment but if you’re a little more sensitive you may need to dilute it with water on a cotton pad
Forest People Luminous Serum For Eyes & Lips
This is again something that I’d happily switch out but am currently trying to use up. It’s basically an oil and since I don’t have a current favourite eye cream I use it there and I find it particularly hydrating as a lip treat overnight too. A nice alternative would be this from The Body Shop.. much cheaper, smells nicer and is multipurpose!
Organic Surge Blissful Daily Moisturiser
Every time I use this I think I have to do a Holy Grail Products video/post soon because there are so many things I just love and this is one of them. It’s dubbed as a day cream and I can see why because it’s light and absorbs quickly but if you have oily, spot prone skin like me it’s perfect as a night cream. It’s hydrating enough yet doesn’t feel heavy and the scent is so fresh.. I just can’t tell you how much I love it but it’s definitely one of my most raved about products.
These are the products that for the most part are keeping my skin clear and looking fresh at the moment but I’m always on the lookout for bigger so any recommendations are very welcome! .. I am desperately seeking eye cream right now and it’s on my list of things I’m willing to splurge on while in London later this month.. I’m looking at Khiels midnight recovery right now but would appreciate any suggestions from you guys!
