Today I thought I'd talk all things skincare and in particular my evening skincare routine. I watch some videos on YouTube and see people use 10+ products on their face before bed which is fine if that's what your skin needs but personally for me I'm not about that life, and have found four holy grail skincare products that I now repurchase over and over so I thought I'd share them with you all today and talk you through my routine.
Firstly it's all about having a good ole cleanse, this is my favourite step in my evening skincare routine because I love that feeling of a fresh clean face and I love using my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser for this, I've been using this for a good 3 months now and its honestly changed my cleansing life. I used to always use micellar waters before but since using Liz Earle's bottle of joy my skin has changed so much and for the better, my dry patches I've always suffered from have vanished, I've noticed a huge difference in the size of my pores, they have really shrunk and I definitely don't have as many blackheads around my nose as I did before and my skin always feel so soft, fresh and clean after using this cleanser too.
Secondly I like to use my Ole Henriksen Truth Facial Water as a toner, this feels so nice on the skin after cleansing because its so cooling and refreshing on the skin but also has moisturising qualities that my skin is always lusting after, after a long day. It's great at adding a really natural glow to the skin too which I love.
The next step in my evening skincare routine is moisturising my skin and for this I use Vichy's Skin Sleep. This stuff is incredible, it's a gel like balm with a lovely light texture that sinks into the skin quickly and smells incredibley good. In the mornings I'm left with super soft, hydrated, fresh looking skin which is just what I need and look for in a night cream.
The last step in my skincare routine is my Clinque Pep-Start Eye Cream, this is probably best used in the mornings to be honest because of it brightening and de-puffing qualities but I find its super rich and moisturising and my eyes love it in the evenings.
And there you have it beaut's, my realistic evening skincare routine! Even though I use four products it honestly takes me no time at all to rub these lotions and potions in, all I need is five minutes and I'm done, so I really don't find this a chore at all.
What are your holy grail evening skincare products beaut's? I'd love to know!
