My Current Evening Skin Care Routine

 I have finally found a skincare routine that I'm happy with so here is what I have been using and loving. 
 First of all, let me tell you a little bit about my skin; It's kinda normal-ish, with some dryness around the eyes and nose. I'm actually quite lucky as I very rarely get any spots but maybe that's because of my killer skincare routine. 

In the evening the first thing I apply and muslin off is the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm. Ever since I discovered this I haven't looked back! I honestly don't know what I was thinking when I used micellar water to remove my make-up because this is so much easier and takes less time. To use this product you scoop out a little bit with your fingers, massage into dry skin; the soft paste turns to an oil and any make-up you had on will just slide off. I then take a warm muslin cloth and gently wipe away.
Now for the second cleanse. This step is very important and alot of people tend to skip it but its needed to remove all the dirt and grime of the day off your skin. After patting my face dry I apply the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish to my skin and rub in circular motions (this is the perfect time for a mini massage) then remove once again with my muslin cloth leaving my skin feeling refreshed and revitalised. 

Next up is a toner however I don't use one every night, only 2-3 times a week. Toners are important to take the pH of your skin back to normal. I use the Pixi Glow Tonic which is also an acid exfoliant that will remove any dead skin cells from the surface for healthier looking skin. I use a little amount on a cotton pad and wipe it all over my face. This product instantly help your skin feel clean and nourished and the long-term impact is that your complexion looks and feels more radiant. 
Then I spritz some of my Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist to refresh and lock in any moisture. This product not only feels lovely to apply but also smells beautiful!

Following this I use the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum for a boost of moisture; I apply it onto dry fingertips, spread onto both hands and apply directly to the skin. I love this product because its light, easily absorbs and hydrates well. 

Moving on I use an eye cream and as you can tell I'm a huge fan of the Body Shop Vitamin E range. I apply a small amount of the Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream onto my ring fingers and start underneath the eye moving in an anti-clockwise motion up to the brow bone and back round again. I then tap the cream in with a light gentle motion to help it absorb into the skin.  Especially in the winter time my under eyes can become quite dry however this product has helped with that. 
My final step is a moisturiser. I use the Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream; this is a great moisturiser and you only need a small amount, it goes on lovely, smells nice, dries quickly and leaves skin really soft. And that concludes my Evening Skin Care Routine!

So my question to you is, what’s your routine? Do you use any products that you think I would love? Let me know.
