The Skincare Series: Current Routine (Evening)

Wednesday, 25 June 2014

I like to take a bit more time with my skincare in the evening, mainly because I'm conscious of removing all my make up, but also because I find it relaxing  it's been part of my bedtime routine for years now.

Evening Skincare Routine

Three of my evening products are the same as those I use in the morning: Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish, The Body Shop Vitamin E Toner and Yes To Grapefruit Eye Cream. You can read about my morning routine here. In addition, I like: 

Superfacialist by Una Brennan Miracle Makeover Facial Oil, £14.99
Designed to be a pre-cleanse, I use it before Cleanse & Polish when my skin needs something extra; it's so luxurious and doesn't leave skin feeling greasy. A little bit goes a long way and I love the rose scent too. As you can see, I've nearly finished the bottle so I'll be buying another one soon. 

The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil, £12
After reading several rave reviews I caved in and bought this. In fairness, I did need something a little bit richer for my skin at night and I'm so glad I chose this. I apply it just before I go to sleep and leave it to sink in. It does take a while, but in the morning my skin is always much softer and the dry patches that have been bothering me recently are disappearing with continued use. I'm impressed!

What do you use in the evening? Let me know in the comments!
