Evening Skincare Routine


I love taking my make up off at the end of the day, when you've worn it for over 10 hours, it's really nice to give your skin a thorough cleanse and pamper. To start with, I remove all my make up with the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, this melts make up instantly, it even gets through the heavy mascara and it's removed the heaviest of make up - Note: Make up I wear out, not day to day but this really is a cleansing wonder. I can't stress enough how much I love this, it's a balm when you scoop some out, turns into an oil when massaged into the skin and then emulsifies into a milky consistency when water is added. Ladies after a good cleansing balm, buy this!

Next up is toning, it's a stage that is a bit hit and miss really, I only ever really do this step if I remember but at the moment I am loving the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic, it doesn't strip the skin, it does hydrate and smells like lavender which is so soothing on an evening. I won't repurchase this after it's run out but it's a great toner for anyone new to toners or wanting something soothing and gentle on the skin. I am after a toner with a little more somethin' somethin' and the Clarins Exfoliating Toner is next on my to buy list.

I love applying my eye cream, it's my favourite stage after discovering the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream, it's from the same line as the toner and this really packs some hydration. I can instantly tell when I've accidentally missed an application and it's made the fine dehydration lines around my eyes significantly smoother and it's so soothing for those puffy eyes after staring at a computer screen all day.

And finally, I pack my skin with hydration. At the moment my skin is so dehydrated and tight (yes I know I need to drink more water) but with these two products, I wake up with plump hydrated skin. The Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a dry oil which hydrates the skin, I use a couple of pipettes of this, warm up between my hands and pat over my skin. Then I apply a generous layer of the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask and hit the sack, next morning my skin is glowing without a dry patch in sight!
