My night time skin care routine is really something I look forward to, probably mostly because it is the last thing I have to do before I get to bed (can you tell I like sleeping?) but who doesn’t love taking their makeup off? As a makeup artist I obviously really enjoy makeup but man being able to rub your eyes freely is awesome. Today I will be discussing my current night time skincare routine, its not very long (I think) but it suits the needs of my dry sensitive skin, while also being anti ageing . . . because the time has come for me to really start paying attention to that (sobs in the corner):
Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil
I am a big fan of the double cleansing method because sometimes you have stubborn mascara . . . and you just don’t feel like looking like a semi bald panda. My favourite product for my first step of cleansing, aka makeup removal, is the Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil I have been using this product for a while and I just can’t find any fault with it. This cleansing oils is fragrance free, rinses away without leaving a residue and is cheap . . . because I just really don’t believe in paying an arm and a leg for a product that is going to be washed down the drain. I just massage a few drops of this oil onto dry skin before adding a few drops of water and massaging again to really help the product emulsify and lift all that makeup and SPF away, then I just rinse and go in with my cleanser.

Simple Kind To Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion.
I discussed the Simple Kind To Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion in my morning skincare routine already but just to recap, this product is very gentle and great for sensitive skin because it has no fragrances or dyes and thoroughly cleanses skin without stripping it. I just GENTLY massage a little bit of this product into my skin and wipe it off with a damp Come Clean Cloth (also discussed it in my morning skin care routine) before going in with my serum. Great product, great price, LOVE.

First Aid Beauty Skin Lab Retinol Serum .25% .
The First Aid Beauty Skin Lab Retinol Serum .25% is another product that I have spoken about on my blog before (hey, if its good its good) and that I can not live without anymore, it is just so good for so many things. The ingredients in this serum tackle ageing skin, uneven skin tone, dryness and irritation! Honestly it is an all in one, and even though it is pricy, it is (in my opinion) worth the investment. I just apply a few pumps on my skin straight after cleansing and give it about 30 seconds to soak in and then just follow up with my night cream.

Hopes Relief Intensive Dry Skin Rescue Cream.
Hopes Relief is a bit of a lesser known brand that I was introduced to when I was struggling with a particularly bad patch of sensitive skin. The Hopes Relief Intensive Dry Skin Rescue Cream is a miracle in a bottle, it is great if you have Rosacea, Eczema, Psoriasis, sunburn . . . the list goes on and on. With soothing ingredients like manuka honey, aloe vera, gota kola and licorice root this is a perfect super moisturising night cream. I just slather (and I mean SLATHER) this product all over my skin and go to sleep and I wake up with soft glowing skin. Its great.
