Night Time Skincare Routine

I've always suffered with acne-prone skin; my skin acts up with hormones, medication etc. and sometimes I want to wear a bag over my head. Since I've been regularly taking time to look after my skin, it's become much better; so much so, that I've taken no-makeup selfies! 

My skin type is combination, I have an oily T-zone and dryness around the perimeter of my face, I'm that indecisive even my skin can't make a decision on what it wants. I love skincare and feel like I've been searching for the perfect products for my skin for years....and I love this combination of products.

I don't wear makeup on an every day occasion because I very rarely get out of my pyjamas or even go to my front door. However, if I have been out or playing with all my beauty goodies, I've been using The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil to remove my makeup. I'm not 100% sure as to whether I love this product yet but will keep you updated. Also, if I'm feeling really lazy and can't be bothered with a cleansing oil, I'll go in with my Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes.

Philosophy Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser - 240ml | £18 | Boots |

Magnitone The Full Monty | £130 | Magnitone |

Caudalie Deep Cleansing Exfoliator | £18 | Feel Unique |

Eau Thermal Avene Water Spray | £7 | Boots |

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster | £23.50 | Feel Unique |

Ole Henriksen Total Truth Eye Creme | £41 | Feel Unique |

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream | £7.47 | Beauty Bay |

I wet my Magnitone brush head and apply Purity, then cleanse my face with the Magnitone. I rinse with luke-warm water and massage the Caudalie exfoliator onto my skin, I only exfoliate three times a week. I love this exfoliator, it's gentle, removes any dirt and dead skin cells, whilst smelling of grape; I highly recommend it. I rinse my face again to remove any exfoliating beads and then spray the Avene water all over my face and neck; this is probably my favourite step, I like how cool and refreshing it is. I wait for the water to settle into my skin and I go in with two pumps of Truth Serum. I then apply my eye cream and moisturiser. Even though the FAB is a hydrating moisturiser, I still apply it to my T-zone, just not an excessive amount.

I've been using these products religiously for over two months and I'm really impressed with how my skin looks and feels.

What is your night time skincare routine?


  1. So many lovely products! I love my Magnitone and used the Truth Serum Collagen Booster a while back and loved it too! I don't know why I stopped using it to be honest! x

  2. I love the first aid beauty cream! I noticed a massive difference in my skin since using it xx

  3. I love the thermal water for just soothing skin that's tired or tight because of aircon/heating related dryness, or if I have any kind or soreness from blemishes. It even perks up my skin when my very very mild eczema raises it's ugly head. It really is just a soothing drink for the skin.

    Thanks for the other product mentions tho...obsessed with finding the right routine atm.
