Evening Skincare Essentials

I love experimenting with skincare, after all it can completely change the way you look and how your makeup applies. 

However, when you find products that work for you it becomes hard to steer away from those and no matter how many different variations of a certain product you try you always come back to them. 

Here are my holy grail evening skincare products, the ones that greet me as I come home from a long day at work and want to remove my makeup and get into my pyjamas to chill out asap.

No matter how tired/lazy I'm feeling I never sleep with my makeup on, my go-to makeup remover is the take the day off balm from Clinique. 
This stuff is ah-mazing. It's gentle enough to use on the eyes and melts away my makeup with ease, you only need a small amount of this so a pot lasts so long! it's perfect for on the go makeup removal or as something to take on holiday, though I follow this with a second cleanse I could definitely get away with just using this alone- my Holy Grail makeup remover

I like to double cleanse, that way I can be sure that my skin is fresh and clean and ready for bed. For this I love to use a combination of my Magnitone Barefaced cleaning brush* and the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. 
Some very exciting news is that I'm a Magnitone brand ambassador! you can follow my link here to view all of the lovely Magnitone products that I've been loving. 
The Magnitone bare faced brush works my cleanser into my skin, reaching those pesky areas where spots and blackheads tend to build up. It beeps when it's time to move onto the next section of your face which I love! it means I take the time to do my skincare routine and enjoy it as opposed to rushing. This is such a lovely addition to my evening skincare as it feels like a massage- girl needs to pamper her skin!  I would highly recommend these as the perfect skincare routine companion. 

The Liz Earle cleanse and polish was the first 'high end' skin care product I ever purchased and I was so excited to use it - this has now been in my routine for years and is my go-to cleanser, I'm yet to find anything that compares to this.

The Body Shops Vitamin E range has the most beautiful, delicate scent to it and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and plump - this is why this is my go-to night cream. I've tried many and always find myself coming back to this.

Eye cream! though this is a step I usually forget and have to rush back into the bathroom to do.. I am obsessed with the Kiehls avocado eye cream, this is a lightweight eye cream that leaves my eye area feeling hydrated and awakened. This doesn't have a strong scent to it either so lays beautifully on top of the Vitamin E night cream.

This step is essential at this time of year when the weather starts to become a whole lot colder, the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is an absolute saviour! I hadn't tried this until last year when it completely saved my chapped lips and since then I've sworn by this, it's incredible and you need it in your routine. 

What are your go-to evening skincare products?

  1. I've been looking at a Magnitone cleansing brush for such a long time, but for some reason I always seem to talk myself out of getting one. But I think it's time for me to finally take the plunge and get one!

    I'm desperately on the hunt for a good eye cream, so I think I'm going to give this one of yours a go and see what I think to it.

  4. This sounds like the most dreamy skincare routine! I love the Clinique Take The Day Off balm, I just haven't been able to afford to repurchase for ages. Also the Liz Earle cleanse and polish is my holy grail cleanser <3 I find that takes off makeup really well too! :)

    I must try out the Kiehls eye cream at some point too!

    Great post :)
