My Evening Skincare Routine

skincare one copy

Your skin is probably the most important thing on your body and I always forget that it is actually a living organism which makes is even more important to decide wisely what to clean it with. My skin type is normal-dry however I am prone to break outs on my chin. So I need something that isn't going to strip my face nor break me out. I also do not like to fork out a lot of money on skincare. So the little routine I have set up stops my breaks out (well...most of the time) and dryness from happening yet it is super purse friendly!

How I take my make-up off

I firstly use the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and pour a little onto a large cotton pad to take my eye make-up off. I find it too harsh to use on my skin but for removing mascara and stubborn eyeliner this is great!
To remove my foundation I use The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil. It took me awhile to work out the best way to use this but the best way I think is to just place one pump into the palm of my hand, then I rub my hands together to spread the product and gently rub it onto my face. This breaks down my make up perfectly and because it is an oil it doesn't dry out my skin in the slightest.

My Cleanser of Choice

I like to use the No 7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser after using my cleaning oil mainly to remove the excess oil but it's gentle and prevents break outs. When you buy the cleanser it comes in a nice little box with a exfoliating muslin cloth (which I only get one use out of as it doesn't wash well). I just use one pump and rub it all over my face (avoiding my eyes) then I run come warm water and soak my face cloth in it. I wring the cloth out and gently remove the cleanser off my face. Afterwards my skin feels so clean and soft!


To finish off I apply a small amount of the The Body Shop Vitamin E Night Cream which intensively hydrates and helps leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth!


  1. The Garnier Micellar Water has been repurchased by me for what must now be the fourth time, I love it for removing my eye make up before I cleanse properly of an evening.
