My Evening Routine…

imageOne thing I have always done, even when I was a stay out late, drunk too much twentysomething, I have never gone to bed with my make-up on.  Admittedly, there may have been times when it was just a cursory swipe of eye make-up remover and and wipe with a damp flannel, but generally I have always been a bit of a clean skin freak.

As I have started to write about make-up and skincare, I am trying loads of new products and so my routine changes quite frequently.  So here is my current evening routine.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 


I use this Micellar water to remove my eye make-up and it does so incredibly well.  I am a bit partial to a few coats of mascara and this removes all of it easily.

Una Brennan Super Facialist 


This is beautiful cleansing oil that smells divinely of sweet orange.  A very light oil that becomes milky when you add water to it.  Is simply massage into my skin and remove with a warm, damp flannel.  I always repeat this process as the first cleanse removes the make-up and the second cleanses the skin.

Pixie Glow Tonic


Pop some Glow Tonic on a cotton pad and wipe over the skin.  This contains Glycolic Acid and since I have been using this, my skin has definitely improved.  This is something I will continue to use in the future.

Skin Doctors Youth Cell


I like to use a serum before my moisturiser, and at the moment I am using this product that I bought from T K Max.  They often have random products on their shelves, and it looked interesting.  I have found this to be very moisturising and not sticky (which I hate).

L’Oreal Age Perfect Pro-calcium night cream


I like a bargain, and this was on sale in Boots for a fiver!  So I’ve given it a go.  I’m pleased with it so far.  It is easily absorbed into the skin and as my skin is mature and dehydrated, it works well for me.  I think if you had a greasy skin, then this cream would not be suitable for you.
