Moisturising Winter Night Skincare Routine
Continuing from my previous post about Snail Mucus (which you can read here), you'll know that my skin is a lot drier during the Winter season. All the products that I use right now really help moisturise and get rid of random dry patches on my face!
I like to keep my skincare routine pretty simple as I, like many of you too don't have that much time every night to do a full on pamper session!
Using the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, I take off the days makeup by massaging it into my skin and then taking it off with the muslin cloth. I can't tell you how much I love this product, what's great is that you can take off your eye makeup with it too.
I soak 2 cotton pads with the Bioderma cleansing water (another cult product in the beauty world), and wipe off any excess makeup that I may have missed from my previous step. I do tend to see the remainders of my foundation on the cotton pads so it's definitely worth this extra step!
I've poured my Liz Earle Skin Tonic into a little spray bottle to make it easier to apply all over my face as I found that I wasted a lot of product when pouring out the product straight from the bottle! It also feels so refreshing when spraying toner all over your face and then gently pat it until it's fully absorbed.
I've been using Shiseido moisturisers for years now and they've been really nourishing on the skin. They are quite pricey though but I definitely think it's worth the investment as each tub lasts for ages! This was is from The Skincare range 0 Night Moisture Recharge.
I bought the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado in Duty Free on my way to Hong Kong and I admit it's done a good job at moisturising my eye area but it doesn't do much else other than that. I don't think I'll be in a hurry to buy another one when I finish this one, I need one that I can feel tightens up my eye area!
Moisturising Face Mask
I'm a massive fan of the Origins Face Masks. This Drink Up Intensive Over night mask has been part of my skincare routine for a long time now and I don't think I could live without it! I notice the difference when applying my makeup the next day if I haven't applied any the night before. My foundation doesn't sit properly on my skin and sometimes highlights the dry patches on my face. Thumbs up from me!
I hope this has helped you in some way.
