My Bed Time Beauty Routine (Summer 2015)

Hello fellow blog readers :-D

I have wanted to write a post on my night time beauty routine for a while now and i have finally got round to doing it!

Now I don't think that my night time routine is really 'all that' to be fair,lol but I do love reading these type of posts so thought it would be fun to share still.

This is a routine I have done for maybe the past few months. 

I start by removing any makeup. I was using Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish until it ran out a few days ago so now I am using the brand 'Simple' Eye Makeup Remover. This isn't a favourite product of mine though, I had it in my beauty basket so I used it lol The product is ok but after I have removed my makeup my skin feels quite rough and dry to touch so always need to moisturise after. I also wouldn't lick your lips straight after either as it doesn't taste too good! :-p

I then use my Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic (200ml Toner). I have had this toner for a few months now and use it almost every day and still have a fair amount left. I love Liz Earle products because they are kind to the skin and include natural ingredients. 

A lot of people I guess would cleanse there face too but I don't tend to this in the evening. I just skip straight to moisturiser next. Again I was using the Liz Earle one but as that ran out I am now using Loreal Revitalift which my mum actually gave me, she hadn't opened it as was already using one so she gave it to me. This particular one is a good all rounder for most people, it targets a lot of things.. dull complexion, dryness, fine lines, etc it also has SPF20 in too...just what I need for my night time routine aye? ;-) 

Next I apply an eye cream, the No7 Lift & Luminate. I got this for my birthday last year, wow, that was a whole year ago! :-/ I will be celebrating my birthday again soon, on the 28th! I will be turning 27!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am officially going to be an old lady! :-( good thing my mum did give me that moisturiser...I need something to fight them wrinkles, ha! Anyway lets get back on track here... :-) 

I then apply my spot cream if I have any spots, which is usually a daily thing lately :-/
The one I have is specifically for acne. My mum got me this from the pharmacy she works at a little while back. It was when I was coming up in really bad spots and no products were really helping until my mum got me this Quinoderm product then I started to see a difference. I apply the smallest amount onto a spot and it does really help. It is very drying to the skin though so I make sure I don't rub it around the spot as before it has made my skin very dry and red because it is very strong!

Next I use a Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate oil. I got this 'free' with my toner, moisturiser and cleanser when I bought it all as a deal. It smooths and re-balances the look of your skin. It also has an aroma smell which I like to breathe in as it helps me relax which is great to use before bed. I massage this into my face and down my neck and let it work it's magic over night :-)

To finish off I then use my hand cream which is a fast absorbing, light texture one from Neutrogena. I find this one really good. I also use lip balm which I didn't add in the photo's. I use normal lip balm in the day but for bed I like to use a tub of Vaseline, as it is thicker I feel like it lasts better through the night and makes my lips feel really soft and moisturised.

Well there we is quite late right now so I am going upstairs to do this exact routine and get into bed, most likely scroll through Instagram and Twitter for about half an hour before actually going to sleep though, sometimes i like to play Bejeweled Blitz too :-D
