I haven't actually done an updated skincare routine in a while and I've added so many new products to both my morning and evening routines, so here it is. I'm quite lucky in the fact that I don't tend to suffer massively with my skin apart from the occasional spot or some dry patched. I always have more time in the evenings to pamper my skin so this routine is the products I have tried and tested and still reaching for most evenings. My routine tends to be split into 3 parts; removing makeup, moisturising and then added extras.


I have been a fan of the original Garnier Micellar water for ages but they released this new oil-infused one a few months ago I was interested to try. the infusion of oil makes it even easier to remove the most stubborn of makeup with ease. I tend to use this one to remove my eye makeup as it glides so easily away and I don't have to scrub my eyes leaving them itchy and sore. The liquid in the bottle doesn't look that great and you have to shake to combine the water and oil but it works a dream once combine. Its also really affordable at only £5.99 (you can also normally find it on offer).

This is definitely one of those cult products everyone needs in their collection. I was actually quite late to the party on it and only starting using it this year but I'm a convert. I use this either after removing my eye makeup or on its own to remove everything and it works just as well either way. This is slightly more fresh on the skin that a oil cleanser so I use it when I don't want my skin to have anything to heavy on it. You apply this all over your face and soak a muslin cloth with hot water to remove makeup and any dirt from the day. 

I've combined these two together since they are basically two different versions of the same cleanser. The camomile collection from The Body Shop is one of my favourites as it feels so dreamy on my skin and its perfect for when my skin is a little sensitive as it doesn't inflame it at all. I had the butter first in the collection and loved how it would literally slide away any makeup, I would scoop out an amount into my hands and then rub them together to warm it and apply all over my face. I then remove with a muslin cloth. I have found the oil to be slightly better at removing eye makeup although it can irritate my eyes a little if it gets in them on accident.

I only have a mini version of this my mum gave me so I have to saviour it since the full size it £40!! However, this is so dreamy at removing your makeup and I love the smell of it. It's quite a heavy cleanser oil but make it amazing at removing even the toughest of makeup. The formula of this is in-between a butter and an oil and like The Body Shop butter I warm in my hands, apply all over my face and remove with a muslin cloth.

I was undecided about whether these came under removing my makeup or as an added extra as they aren't something I use every night, however, they do help remove any residual makeup and dirt. I originally picked these up after Kim Kardashian talked about her love for them and the fan I am of the Kardashians I headed out and got them. These are really interested as one side of the wipe is rough to exfoliate and the other side soft to clean and sooth the skin. I tend to use these after removing my makeup with a cleanser every couple of nights to scrub away dead skin cells and dirt and then the soft side to wipe everything away and cool my skin.


This is technically a moisturising but it comes under this part of my routine as I apply it onto clean skin before a deeper moisturising. This product is clinically proven to help minimise the appearance of blemishes, whilst I don't suffer too badly, it doesn't hurt to use a product to help keep away blemishes. This is also formulated to help keep away shine and unblock pores, which I suffer with on my t-zone.

Another french pharmacy brand but the products really are incredible. This is very similar to the Effaclar Duo whereby it is designed to help minimise shine and reduce the production of oil in your skin. I again apply this under my moisturiser to help with minimise pores and keep away any blemishes. I also find this helps even out any redness in my skin tone and is perfect when my skin is slightly sensitive.

Oops another french pharmacy brand but obviously they really are masters in skincare. Vichy is a slightly more premium price point, although I did pick this up on a sale on Look Fantastic so if you think over £20 is too much look on there at the deals. This product is a gel based serum that diffuses moisture over the skin and is continuously hydrated by misting micro-sprays. 

This is another product that I like to use before a more intense moisturiser. This serum contains vitamin C to brighten the skin and reduce ages spots. This serum isn't too heavy so it wont clog up your skin before applying moisturiser. It comes in a small bottle with a little pipette so you can get out as much or as little product as you want to apply to your skin.

This is the moisturiser I reach for when my skin is going through a dry patch. I tend to get this every so often and can depend on the weather or how I'm feeling. It contains kale, watercress and almond oil, which all help enrich the skin with a deep nourishment and help keep away any aggressions that can cause dry skin. This moisturisers smell so refreshing and although it is very moisturising its not heavy. The packaging is this mint green tube with a pump so you don't end up with too much product.

This range is probably my second favourite after the camomile range at The Body Shop. This moisturiser is a great dupe for the Origings Gin Zing Moisturiser. Its a gel based formula that I find it perfect to use nighttime and daytime before the application of makeup. It contains Vitamin C to help brighten the skin tone and energise the skin. The product itself is orange in colour and has this amazing fresh, fruity smell - I really could lather this all over myself.


I picked this up on sale in the Body Shop as I personally wouldn't justify spending that much on a sleeping mask. I use this a couple of nights a week to help revive my tired skin and replenish the skin. Its a gel based formula with Edelweiss stem cells to help bring out the youthfulness in your skin and add some bounce back. I have found that whenever I apply this overnight in the morning my skin is feeling revived and plumper.

I actually love sheet masks for something a little different and they are so much cleaner to use that a normal mask. The Sephora ones were the first I tried and they really are great quality and only $6! I'll use a sheet mask when I have a spare half an hour and just sit there with it on and relax. 

These are a new launch my L'Oreal and seem to be everywhere so I had to pick one up to try. I opted for the glow one as I didn't have a mask like it in my collection. This mask contains red algae extract, which is known for its brightening properties and obviously gives the red colour to the product. The texture of this mask is quite thick but still creamy and applied really easy to the skin. After using the mask I find my skin is brighter and glowing.

These radiance boosting pads containing exfoliating glycolic acid to help retexture and resurface the skin by removing dead skill cells and dirt. These are also moisturising as they contain hyaluronic acid and so you skin still feels refreshed and soothed. I tend to use these once or twice a week again as something extra in my routine.

This is another new addiction and part of the best selling GinZing range for origins, i'm a fan of the moisturiser already (although i've currently run out!) This mask is a gel based formula that dries up so can be peeled off. Once peeled off it reveals brighter skin and tightens up your pores. I have to say this is one of the funnest masks to wear as your basically a giant glittery orange when its on your face. The only downfall I have with this mask is that it contains alcohol which does dry my skin a little and I can smell it quite strongly in the mask.


Since this post is in collaborate with, who invited me to take part in a fabulous competition to reveal my nighttime beauty secrets, I thought i'd also add at the end of this some products I'm lusting over from their website...

  1. Your skincare routine is way more detailed and much better than mine! At the moment I only have two steps to mine, and don't include a deep cleanse or any moisturising (whoops). I really want to change this asap, and I think the Liz Earle Cleanser is definitely the first step forward I need!
