Evening Skincare Routine

Hey lovelies, I hope you're all having a great day. It's rather gloomy here in Sunderland so I apologise for the lack of brightness in my photos. Today I'm sharing with you my evening skincare routine, this is the routine I use if I've been wearing make-up that day. I've been using this routine for a while just switching up a few products. My skin is dry but I also get a few spots, so I have to deal with the breakout and make sure I moisturise well.

 I start off by removing my make-up with L'Oreal's Micellar Cleansing Water, this does a great job of removing most of my make-up. You can read a full review of this product here.

I then scoop some of the Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm and rub all around my face until it changes into an oil, then I grab a hot flannel and wipe the product away. This product removes the rest of my make-up but it's also moisturising on my skin.

I then use the Clean & Clear Advantage Fast Action Daily Wash, this product contains salicylic acid which is well-known for dealing with spots. If my skin is feeling dry and flaky I will then go in with the Botanics Purifying Face Scrub, this gentle yet ex foliating scrub gets rid of the dry flaky skin which gives me a smoother base for applying make-up.

Now it's time to tone with the T-Zone Clear Pore Cleanser, I soak a cotton pad and rub this all around my face focusing on the nose and t-zone area as I do have blackheads. This product helps remove any make-up (if there's any left after the thorough cleanse).

I then dab on my Clean & Clear Advantage Spot Gel onto any pesky breakouts. Then I gently dab my Dirty Works Eye Cream all around and underneath my eye. I finish with Simple's Replenishing Rich Moisturiser smothering a healthy amount all over my face.

This may seem like a time consuming skincare routine but it doesn't actually take that long. As you can see my main focusses are keeping my spots under control and keeping my skin replenished.

What are your skincare staples?

    1. It is isn't it! I love how it doesn't have a scent too. :) x

  2. What a thorough routine! I've heard a lot about the hot cleansing balm and I really want to give it a go, something new :)
