With the arrival of some lovely warmer weather – and after paying a visit to the amazing Caroline Hirons a few weeks ago – I’ve made a few changes to my evening skincare routine and wanted to share with y’all my updated skincare selection, much like I did with my recent morning routine post.
I’m still loving the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water – it’s a great alternative to the Bioderma H2O – to remove my make up at the end of the day. It’s quick, easy and really gentle on my skin , ideal after a long ole day at work. I’m currently rotating between two cleansers, the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm and the Clarins Extra-Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream. Both do a brilliant job at getting rid of every bit of dirt and grub from my skin, without stripping it or leaving it feeling tight and dry. Apply to dry skin and then wipe off with a hot damp flannel. Aaaaaah.
For toners, I turn to the Pixi Glow Tonic – an amazing acid exfoliator – and then the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic in spritzer form to refresh and hydrate. The combination of the two leaves my skin feeling calm and fresh, ready to crack on with oils and treatments. The first of which is my eye cream, the Ole Henriksen Fresh Start Creme, a really nourishing formula which de-puffs and soothes while tackling fine lines and eye bags. A dream for my tired ole eyes.
Then we move on to a spot treatment, which at the moment is the Eau Thermale Avène TriAcnéal. This on-the-spot solution reduces spot size, calms redness and blitzes blemishes during the evening, leaving you with a much healthier-looking face come morning. Last but not least, I layer on the REN Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil, the first of many Caroline-recommended products that I purchased post-appointment. Now if I’m organised enough, I’ll sort all of this out early in the evening and layer up the spot treatment and the oil a few times before bed. If I’m organised enough…
Then it’s off to bed…. Zzzzzzzzzzz
