Beauty Routines Part Four


This is my evening routine. You can read about my morning routine here.

In the evening I always double cleanse to remove make up first. This leaves my skin clear enough to cleanse properly. 

  •  First cleanse - At the moment this is with the Clinque Take the Day Off Balm. I use this to remove my make up . You only need a tiny amount of this on your fingertips. You massage it into your skin and on your eye make up and it dissolves the lot. I then add water with my fingertips - just a little and the balm emulsifies . I then remove it with a flannel and running water.
  • Second cleanse - At the moment my second cleanse is with the Clinque Take the Day Off Milk Cleanser. It leaves my skin soft and clean. I use my Priori cleanser when my skin needs a boost - usually about 3 times a week. This Priori cleanser is incredible and I want to add more into my range, but at the moment it is out of my price bracket.

  • I would like to add a rosewater/hydrating toner in here. I am looking at a few that have been suggested.
  • I apply Ren'e eye gel next.
  • Then Dermalogicas skin hydrating booster with a shot of hydraluronic acid.
  • Pepta Bright by Indeed - a little miracle tube that brightens and reduces pigmentation - I put this everywhere - face, neck and chest.
  • Dermalogica skin smoothing cream - all over face, neck and chest.

Both my morning and evening routine may change slightly depending on how my skin is and whether I am short of time or not. If my skin is particularly dry I may put both Indeed treatments on morning and night. If is it a bit oily I will use my clarifying toner from my morning routine in the evening. I may change the moisturiser from time to time, but the Dermalogica one is my most consistent go to moisturiser. 

I have now collected my free 7ml sample of Estee Lauders Revamped Night Serum and I love it! I am using this instead of the Dermalogica booster at the moment. You can get a free sample of this serum with the Beauty of the NIght here . Print off the details and take them to your nearest stockist.

Don't forget The Body Shop also has their 40% off code at the moment or £25 off if you spend more than £50. Codes here.

  1. You are very good with your evening routine. I don't tend to use the Dermalogica soothing cream at night, I am trying to use up a big tube of Orgins Night Mask which is just like a thick moisturiser. x

  2. Have you tried the Estee Lauder Night Serum? I am really impressed so far - am tempted to buy the full size bottle !!!

  3. The Clinique cleansers look lovely Claire! Am hearing really good things about the Estee Lauder serum? Hope you'll do a little review? xx

    1. I amso enjoying them.Not used a lot of clinique before, but it seems to suit my skin. I am really loving the EL night serum, but it is £44 for the full size bottle - too much? X

  4. Try the Frankincense toner from Neal's Yard Remedies. Frankincense is great for us more 'mature' ladies ;) I love it and find, unlike some toners, it doesn't dry my skin x
