Welcome back to my blog! For today’s post I thought I would do a beauty related piece; it’s been a hot minute! So, if you want to know my (very simple) night time routine, then please keep on reading!
The first step I take when getting ready for bed is to remove my makeup; my favourite step! There is no feeling like removing a full face of makeup after a long day. To remove my eye makeup I use the Nivea ‘Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover’; a mouthful, but it is the BEST one I have found. I apply some to a cotton pad and simply wipe it over my eye and it takes off everything! Mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow and even ABH Dipbrow Pomade which is waterproof! Then, I use the Garnier ‘Micellar Cleansing Water’, to remove my face makeup, again it is the best one I’ve used! A few cotton pads later and my face is makeup free! As a last step I use a makeup wipe (Nivea ‘Pure and Natural Cleansing Wipes’) to ensure my face is fully clean and fresh! Then onto the next step.
The next step is skincare; my routine is very basic! I use the Baby Dove ‘Sensitive Moisturizer’ ( as I have very sensitive skin, as sensitive as a babies LOL), and apply a small amount all over my face, its gentle but does the job! Then, I take a good old trusty product ( also for babies)… Sudocrem! I dab a little amount onto any blemishes or red areas I might have. I can’t remember where I first heard this trick from, but I do think it really works to reduce redness and dry up blemishes! Give it a try! Plus it is a very affordable skin care product. The last and most important step I take in my night time routine is to apply a generous amount of Vaseline to my lips. The only step I will NEVER miss. My lips get awfully dry if I don’t use lip balm everyday, so I always make sure, no matter how tired I am, that I apply Vaseline!
And there it is! My very simple and affordable night time routine! I hope you enjoyed it and I will be back soon with another post! I am going to try & include more makeup/beauty related posts in the near future, so can your eyes peeled!
