Snuggling up in fresh sheets with pampered skin is the most comforting feeling. If only I could have fresh sheets every time I got into bed! Pampered skin is more achievable! On my bedside table I have an old Glossybox that I collect all my evening skincare in. There is some bits in there that I forget about... I can't be the only one that has skincare kicking around that doesn't work for me? I'm slowing passing it onto friends and family though!
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Micro-Exfoliant Astringent Lotion
Basically a fancy name for a toner! I've been using this for ages, originally along with the famous Effaclar Duo. As well as being a toner it is a microexfoliant - not a physical one, a chemical one. Sounds scary, but it really does work and isn't harsh at all. I sweep this over my skin (not around my eyes!) with a cotton pad after cleansing. Expensive(ish), but lasts for ages!
Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment*
(£11.70*, Look Fantastic)
Another product I've been using for a long time and sadly coming to the end of. This contains Salicylic Acid, Cucumber and Tea Tree among other ingredients to help calm down the skin. For me its one of those products that you don't quite realise what it does until you stop using it. I stopped using it for a few weeks over the summer and my skin got gradually worse, I started using it again and my skin improved to where it is at the moment. I wouldn't recommend this if you have sensitive skin - my husband does and he didn't get on with this!
Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream*
(£25.50* for 15ml, ASOS)
I've never really been one to use eyecream, I never really saw the need. But I've decided to add one into my routine, they always say prevention is better than a cure! I'll be honest with you I haven't really noticed this one doing much, however I've only been using it for a couple of weeks so I'll hold off on making too much of a judgement! This is aimed at being brightening and fading dark circles - perhaps I should be using this in the morning not the evening!
Dr. Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Day Cream*
(£9.49*, Holland & Barrett)
I've not kept it a secret how much I love Dr Organics Coconut Night Cream - it's super hydrating and of course natural and organic. Since finishing it up recently (sad face!) I've moved onto the Moroccan Argan Oil Day Cream - it's super heavy for the daytime though so I'm using it at night! It's very rich and nourishing with a beautiful earthy scent to it. It does make my sin feel a little weird, perhaps a little too fragranced for me - I'll be going back to the Coconut one when this is done!
Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast Lipbalm
The best smelling lipbalm in the whole world! It smells just like the Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment (mouthful) which is a lot more expensive and much harder to get hold of! The texture's not waxy or too greasy so the perfect thing to top up my lips moisture overnight. It's nothing super hydrating so I'll probably move onto something different come Winter!
Soap & Glory Heel Genius Foot Cream
Maybe a weird inclusion, but you gotta look after your feet! Soap & Glory do body products so well they (generally) smell good, work well and come in at a reasonable place. Although with my recent pact with myself to transfer to natural body/skin products I may have to say goodbye! This foot cream kinda reminds me of toothpaste, it's mint green! The scent is subtle and fresh with a menthol hint and beautifully hydrating and softening.
