My Current Evening Skincare Routine.


I've been known to get pretty lazy when it comes to skincare - I'd much prefer to spend all of my money on makeup. I rarely switch up my skincare, just because I'm a firm believer in 'don't fix what's not broken' - but I do like to add new things in every now and again. Some of these products end up becoming fast favourites...others I'll whip out quicker than you can say 'hot cloth cleanser' . I've had the same evening skincare routine for a good month or so now and so far, it's been working like a dream. As much as I prefer spending money on makeup, I still think it's important to have a stable routine to keep your skin in good working order.

I like to start off by removing my eye makeup. I wear pretty long-wearing waterproof mascara on a daily basis and it can be a bit of a ballache to remove with just my cleanser - pair that with days where I was feeling the liquid eyeliner and it's just a complete messy hassle, so I'll do this separately. The Loreal Absolute makeup remover Eye & Lip has been the best I've come across at the drugstore. A 2 phase product that works brilliantly at removing even the most stubborn of mascaras. I'll pop a little on a cotton pad and wipe away that day's eye look.
I then like to work on the rest of my makeup removal. Superdrug's B.Clean Melting Gel Cleanser has become my new favourite in that department. A thick, jelly-like substance that when mixed with water, emulsifies and eliminates all of the other makeup on my face. It leaves my skin soft and doesn't dry it out in the slightest.
I like to use Superdrug's Vitamin E Moisture Mask every other night. It does recommend 3 times a week, but my skin can get pretty dry - especially during the Winter and it doesn't make any difference how often I use it anyway. It smells delicious and adds that extra surge of moisture that my skin can often lack during the colder months. I'll leave that on for 15 minutes until it's all but absorbed and then dab off any excess with a tissue. 
Taking a little of Simple's Regeneration Anti-Ageing eye cream in the eye area and dab that in with my ring fingers until fully absorbed, following up with a thin layer of Boots' Botanics Organic Facial Oil.
I like to wait for my facial oil to fully absorb before going in with the Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser, this leaves my skin hydrated without any greasiness or tackiness.

 A good handful of products that do exactly what they say on the tin, and new favourites that are no doubt going to become holy grail.
