Hey loves! Today’s post is going to go through my pretty extensive bed time routine. This usually happens after a shower before bed 😊 I will try run through the reasons I use these products, how I came about them, their benefits and some cons alongside links for where you can get them! 👻
1.)I love..mango and papaya this body lotion is awesome for moisturising skin! My skin is not particularly dry but the scents infused with this lotion are truly delicious! I use this casually before bed just to keep my skin well moisturised , I try to do this every night but this step isn’t imperative unless i’ve had a shower before bed. However, I feel like if your skin was particularly dry then the lotion would not protect and give you the best treatment as it is not especially made for people with specific skin types. I would recommend using another cream alongside for proper conditioning. :)
You can get this product at you local Savers store!
2.)Vaseline essential moisture- cocoa radiant This coco butter lotion smells beautiful and gives extra care for your skin! The moisture really leaves your skin feel like its glowing and helps tackle any dry skin. It has pure cocoa butter which helps to enrich the skin, with a multi(3)layered moisturising system. However, whilst the smell is pleasant I still prefer the fruity smell of the first lotion, sometimes the cocoa can be a bit to cosmetic and heavy on your skin.
You can get this from most drug stores 😍🐤
Time for my favourite skin care products before bed💁
3.)Tea tree facial wipes these face wipes are such a useful edition to your makeup collection! I probably use two a day and get through packs of these badboys! Face wipes have multiple beauty, hygienic and practical purposes. For one, after washing your face in the morning, face wipes can be a handy tool to remove any leftover panda eyes from stubborn eye makeup, as well as prep your skin for an even and cleansed base before you apply fresh make up. Another benefit of using face wipes before actually applying your makeup is that these particular tea tree wipes help absorb the natural sebum(oils) that build on your face as well as work as an effective preventer of acne. Both these benefits mean that you are getting the best before and aftercare when using harsh cosmetic products. Most importantly, wet wipes help take the entire day off and helps remove any dirt and makeup that your facewash missed. I am obsessed with face wipes after a night out!!
4.)Clinique- take the day off This oil based makeup remover really helps dissolve the makeup on your face and literally takes the day off. This focuses on the eyes and lips, including my stubborn “They’re real” mascara as well as lasting gel liners. This is really helpful as it avoids waking up with panda eyes which can be a real hassle in the mornings to get rid of when you’re in rush. The only thing I dislike about this as it has a really greasy feel to it, and it feels a bit heavy and unhealthy for the skin.
Obviously, you can get this from any Clinique counter, based in Debenhams. They also do a balm and samples so feel free to try these out before investing as they are quite expensive!
Witch Hazel my holy grail! I love this astringent so much, it really has a lot of benefits. Using this before bed not only works as a toner to remove any left over dirt, but using this raw astringent helps to minimise and reduce the size of pores; doing this lets less sebum on the skin and therefore less oil is able to produce and thus prevents blocking pores. The only disadvantage is the smell of the raw plant is a little unpleasant but bearable.Mine is from Savers and is a raw witch hazel plant extract.
Skin clearing face moisturiser with tea tree and Eucalyptus and Sudocream!
Last but not least my final most important editions to my bed time regime. The skin cream by T zone has been a really inexpensive and essential routine as it definitely helps to prevent breakouts whereas the sudocream helps to tackle existing ones. Both are awesome products that I could not recommend enough, I urge everyone to own one in their skin care collection especially if you are dealing with acne prone, teenage skin!
I know this was a lengthy post but I love all these products so much that I could not wait to share them with you! Feel free to ask any more questions or recommend any products that you use! See you next week loves!😍😍😍❤️
