Current Night Time Skincare Routine

22 April 2018

Back in March I talked through my morning skincare routine in this post, and I admitted that during my work week I don't get to do the full routine as I don't have time at half six in the morning,  I tend to just moisturise and go. At night time though it's a whole other ball game. I take my time. Mathieu laughs at me and knows not to disturb 'the routine'. 

First off I always use a micellar water and some cotton pads to remove my make up. I usually use Garnier's Micellar water but alas have currently run out. I am actually looking for a new Micellar water, something other than Garnier or Bioderma. I currently have my sights set on the Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water but I haven't heard much about it so who knows if it's a good product, I love Caudalie as a brand so I do have high hopes. 

I am also in the market for a good eye make up remover for stubborn mascara and eyeliner, I've heard good things about Clarins Gentle Eye Make Up Remover so I might hit that up. After removing all my make up and making sure that the cotton pad is clean on both my face and neck, I cleanse my face my current facial cleanser, which is the Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser , used with my Foreo Luna  and give my face a good scrub.  I usually love to do the whole double cleanse situation but at the moment I am out of cleansers, I might just make this a purchase soon as it looks so dreamy.

After I'm all clean, once a week, I like to use an exfoliating mask. This AHA + BHA Peeling Solution from The Ordinary has been my go to recently, I am seriously just in love with this brand, can they do no wrong? and the price! Oh the price. The thought of acid on my skin which is a combo of sensitive and normal, does scare me but I braved it and after ten minutes its leaves my skin feeling like a babies bum. Wonderful. I love exfoliators so I am on the hunt for a physical scrub which I can use a more often than once a week. 

I then add a few drops of my holy grail, Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate Oil  and press it into my skin. My skin laps this up and honestly on the first touch to my face it instantly feels so soothing. I am never without this stuff. I have also recently started to use a Yu Ling Jade Roller to help it sink into the skin and I've never felt so bougie after using it 💅

After a few minutes and the oil has sank in, I then like to moisturise. I have been leaning towards this Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream as I love how thick and hydrating it is. I do use this in the day too but at the moment I have been loving the result when paired with the oil, my skin in the morning is just dewy and plump, so just what I need in a moisturiser. Once my moisturiser is on, out comes the eye cream. I'm in love with the Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment as this little gem hydrates my under eyes and when I wake in the morning everything is smoothed out and ready to go, but I feel it definitely it works better when I've used the Kiehls oil.
