My Night Skincare Routine

night skin care
Before blogging, I didn't really bother so much with skincare as I really didn't think it mattered at all. This all changed the longer I blogged and seeing so many fabulous skincare products all the different roles each skin care has. I ended up buying a few to try out and have ended up with these as my everyday night time regime and I just love them and they make such a difference to my skin and its so much easier applying makeup now and my skins so much more clearer now.

Since I was a late teenager my skin has been combination skin and has breakouts every now and again so I try my very best to combat to keep my skin as clear as possible. With the following steps and trying the same products for a month I can conclude that the following products are working well for me and I am happy with the results.

I start off by removing my makeup and then washing my face with water

Dr Jart+ V7 Cleansing Foam - I then apply thin layer of cleansing foam on my skin just before I go upstairs and leave it on my skin for 15 minutes and wash it of my skin in circular motions.

B. Pure Micellar Water - This is something that I never heard of before blogging but I am so glad I found it as it removes impurities and removes any makeup that has not been removed with the prior steps. The micellar water has no scent and does not effect my sensitive skin.

Benefit 'It's Potent' Eye Cream - I got this in a recent Birchbox and I know its a sample size but it has lasted such a long time and has made a difference to my dark circles I use this at night and also every morning, when this has finished I am defiantly re purchasing.

ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum- This is a luxury that I won in a competition last year! Its got a heavenly scent and it makes me feel like a queen when I apply it. Its makes my skin very smooth and absorbs into the skin almost instantly. This is enriched with omega 3,6 and 9 and vitamins A & E which helps to even and brighten up the skin tone.

Superdrug Vitamin night cream - This cream is enriched with vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant and has a complex mix of other vitamins such as A,B,F and H with horse chestnut extract which helps care for dry skin. This is an affordable cream and in my own opinion works wonders and pampers my skin every evening.

White rabbit skincare Lip balm - A company that is available on etsy this lip balm is just lovely as its scent is coconuts and it is natural. I.I always apply this after all the other steps to keep my lips from getting dry or chapped in the colder weather and its worked so far this December.

I am open to trying other skincare in future but until I have used the following up I will keep using them as I am happy with how they keep  my skin mostly clear which is fabulous

What is your night skincare routine?

 I try to post daily, keep up to date with my newest posts by following me


  1. Aah I have had Benefit's It's Potent Eye Cream on my list for a little while now~ :3
    Is it a big difference in dark circles? C:


  2. I have combination oily skin so know how difficult it can be to get night skincare routine right. So far I've found a winning combo I remove make up with Liz Earle Cleanse & polish, followed by Clarins Water Purify One-Step Cleanser with Mint Essential Water and then my new must have product which I received a sample in my beauty box - Cowshed Anti-Ageing Perfecting Night Serum. I have dark circles naturally and short of surgery I've yet to find a product that would assist with them...somethings you just cant change lol



  3. I haven't used any of the products you described. As a much more mature lady, I tend to use anti-aging beauty products. I am very fond of Yves Rocher Riche creme range, their night cream and eye cream are splendid. Actually, their eye cream is probably the best eye cream one can find, and I have tried a lot of brands.

  4. I do keep my skin care routine nice and simple with a nice face masque now and then for a boost. I like simple cleansers and day moisturiser, then Clarins for night time.

  5. I like to mix up my skincare routine though I am a massive cleanse and polish fan.

  6. I have very dry skin so after cleaning my skin a good night cream is a must

  7. I have a water that I use to remove my makeup from My Little Box, Can't remember what it's called now but it is their own brand. I use a No7 night cream which is just amazing and then I put vaseline on my lips as nothing really beats vaseline x

  8. I use garnier micellar water and then apply a face moisturiser and that's as far as I go. My skin is awful, so will definitely read more into some of these products. I need to take more care and thought over skincare.

  9. I love adding a micellar water to my night time routine too, expect I do it the opposite way around haha ^_^

  10. Looks like you have a great routine set in place! I have definitely gotten more into my skincare since I started reading blogs also! The Dr Jart Cleansing Foam sounds amazing and I also love using Micellar water, I use the Garnier version x

    Beauty with charm

  11. I really want to try the B cleansing water! I love how reasonably priced it is :) Thanks for sharing xx


  12. I'd never heard of Micellar water before I started blogging either, but I'm so glad I found it as it's sooo good!

  13. I'm on a total anti skin care kick at the moment, so barely use anything on my skin at the moment! But I really like micellar water to take off my eye make up :) x
