Evening Skincare Routine

Today I thought I would bring you my current evening skincare routine, I did a post not so long ago on my morning routine so thought it's only right to do an evening one as well.

Whilst I have now got my morning routine down to a tee and I am completely 100% happy with it, I am still playing around with my evening routine and mixing and matching. At the moment these are the products which I am using and they are pretty good but I just...I just don't feel content with it yet.

First up I cleanse my face and remove my makeup with the L'Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil, I just pump 2-3 squirts of oil into my palms and then massage into my face for a couple of minutes to remove my makeup. This stuff is pretty incredible, it literally dissolves makeup in front of your eyes and then you just rinse your face with warm water to remove. Using an oil or balm to remove my makeup first is a must for me, some people I know use face wipes and these just make my skin so sensitive and sore. Out of the all the oils and balms I have used this is by far the best so far, there is no greasy film left behind after rinsing and it actually does remove all makeup.

Next I then cleanse my face with Clarins Extra-Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream, I like to double cleanse as I feel the first cleanse is just removing my makeup and not actually cleaning my face. This has a lovely creamy and rich texture to it which feels dreamy on my dry skin. The technique is a little bizarre but hey ho that's what Clarins advise so that's what I'll do. I bought this cleanser because of all the good things I heard about it and whilst I do like it I just feel that it I'm not 100% sure so I probably won't re purchase it once it's ran out. 

I then apply a toner, at the moment I am using Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner. I received this toner in a free gift and actually really love it. It is super soothing on my skin and helps to freshen the skin and leaves a good clean base to apply moisturiser onto. I do prefer the Elemis Ginseng Toner to this though I have to say. 

Next I apply my moistuiser, I am currently using Soap & Glory Beauty Sleep Accelerator. This moisturiser has the most lovely smell to it, it has such a rich citrussy orangey smell to it. It is super hydrating but I don't think it is all there for me as a night cream. I do really like it and it is my saving grace when in flight but as a night cream I'm just not sold but I don't have any others to use at the moment so if you have any recommendations for rich and thick night creams for dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin then I am all ears! 

Lastly, I apply my eye cream and I am currently using Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream. This is a lovely rich cream for night time, I'm not sure I would want to apply this in the morning purely because of the thick consistency. The packaging of this cream isn't the best, it is a tiny pot and I struggled to get the product out, I'm not a massive fan of pots as I just don't find it very hygienic. The cream itself is lovely and I have definitely noticed a difference from using it, my eyes are less puffy and dark circles have started to disappear slowly. 

So that's my current evening skincare routine, as already mentioned I'm not fully happy with the products that I am currently using so if any of you have any recommendations then I would love to hear them!


  1. The L'oreal oil sounds lovely. I really need to introduce an oil or balm cleanser into my routine - everything else is far too drying for me. Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream is one of my favourites.
