I love a bit of bedside beauty these days, there was often times in the past where I'd forget my night cream and wake up with the driest face, or my hand cream would be stashed in my handbag so I'd forget to apply it before bed (more like I couldn't be bothered to get out of bed to get it he he) so I now have everything I need right before bed on my bedside table, that way I can add my potions and lotions right from my bedside he he.
The first two products that have to be on my bedside table are my beloved Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep and my Clinque Pep Start Eye Cream, if these two aren't right next to me before bed I simply forget to apply them, and seeing as my skin loves this duo so much forgetting them can not be an option. The Skin Sleep nourishes my skin so much overnight and leaves me with a fresher complexion in the morning, it's a great night cream if you wake up to really dull skin because it combats that straight away! The Pep Start Eye Cream is so thick and moisturising and although it's meant to be a morning eye cream I love using it at night instead because it soothes my tired eyes but also makes my eyes appear brighter in the morning, it feels so luxurious too like I'm really treating my eyes he he.
I also have to slather my lips with lip balm right before I go to sleep otherwise I wake up with super dry lips and my all time favourite is the Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. I have loads of these lip balms in all different scents because the formula is so nice and does a great job at long term moisturising, I hate those lip balms that only make your lips feel nourished for half an hour, I like one that will keep my lips soft and ready for lipstick for hours and Burt's Bees does just that. Finally I HAVE to have hand cream on my bedside table at all times, my hands get sooooo dry, I'm so hard on my hands day to day so at night I whack a thick layer of Soap & Glory's Hand Food on, I actually put so much on that it doesn't sink in straight away but I think that works best for me as it nourishes all night then.
