I have a love/hate relationship with my evening skincare routine. When I take care to do all the steps, I love how my skin looks and feels, but when I'm tucked up in bed, have turned off the TV and roll over to sleep, to then remember that I haven't taken my makeup off (worst feeling eh?), I just CBA to get back up and the baby wipes comes out.
For the most part when I do keep up with my evening skincare routine, these are the products that I'm reaching for:
Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil £10.99, Boots
This cleansing oil is lovely, removes my base makeup like a breeze and the orangey scent isn't too overpowering. Skin feels clean and silky. Would be handy if the bottle had a pump, but isn't too much of a pain.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish £13.25, John Lewis
I use Cleanse and Polish as a 2nd cleanser step after the SF oil. I've written a full review of the product here (albeit a very old review!) and still love it just as much. Cleanses the skin leaving it soft and not too stripped.
Clinique Take The Day Off £17.00, Boots (I have a sample version)
I got this makeup remover in a Clinique set that I received from a friend for my birthday, and I must say it does exactly what it says on the tin. I use other items to remover makeup from my ace, but this is perfect for getting rid of stubborn waterproof mascara. I haven't tried it on lipsticks yet, but am pretty sure it would be perfect at removing this too. A couple of swipes with a cotton pad and it's gone.
Superfacialist Rose Intense Moisture Mask £8.99, Boots
I've used this mask 3 times so far since I bought it, and although it may be a little early to say for sure, I'm going to say this may be a new HG product for me. It moisturises my skin so well and leaves it feeling the softest it has been in years. I can see this being perfect for those with dehydrated skin, leaves skin feeling nice and plump.
Caudalie Vinosource thirst Quenching Serum £29.00 Space NK
To amp up the skin plumpness further I am still using my fave Serum by Caudalie. Again, I have written a full review here. Hydrates skin so well and can still feel the affects the morning after.
Kiehl's Ultra Face Cream £24.00, John Lewis
Another oldie but a goodie. I'm on my 2nd pot of the Kiehl's Ultra Face Cream. Perfect for a deep moisturise. I also use this in my morning skincare routine. It sinks into the skin really well and does not feel sticky or greasy. Perfect.
