My Evening Skincare Routine

I know, here we are, another Wednesday, another blogger about to tell you just how important it is to look after your skin, haven’t we seen this before?

But hold on! Instead of your usual run down of a mix of products to use for removing your makeup and cleansing your skin, today I’m going to talk you guys about my amazing 3-step evening skincare routine.IMG_1276A few weeks ago I was looking at the Liz Earle counter, and I decided to ask some questions about the brand, to help me decide whether or not they were a brand that I wanted to get behind.

After 5 minutes of talking about the brand, and the products, I adored everything product, and everything they stood for. Not only is Liz Earle cruelty-free, but all products are created with sensitive skin in mind, so they don’t contain any alcohol, or other harsh ingredients or chemicals that can burn or agitate the skin.

So without me gushing endlessly about how much I love this company, let’s get into my evening skincare routine!IMG_1277I start out by removing my makeup with the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, it takes some time to get used to because you’ve got to apply one or two pumps directly onto dry skin, then massage your makeup off and with a damp muslin cloth, wipe away the product from your face.

After I’ve removed all of my makeup, I wait for a couple of minutes and then apply a little bit of the Instant Boost Skin Tonic to a cotton pad, and then lightly swipe it across my entire face.

And finally I apply a thin layer of the Skin Repair Moisturiser all over my face. I really like the moisturiser because usually moisturisers can’t seem to balance well with my skin, they’re either far too oily and leave my skin permanently sticky, or not moisturising enough and disappear after just a few seconds. Plus, my skin hasn’t just completely adjusted to this moisturiser, so it continues to properly hydrate my skin with regular use.

As I’ve said, this brand is perfect for all types of skin, including extremely sensitive and combination skin, as the naturally active ingredients help to balance out the skin, moisturising your dry areas, and neutralising your oily areas!

I have been using this products at least every other day for a month now, and I still love the super clean and soft feeling that it leaves on my skin. I would recommend these products to everyone, regardless of your skin type or preferences, because it works well for everyone, and the scent is very light and just a ‘clean’ scent, so it’s not overpowering or something that only a few people will like.

That’s it for my review and run down of my evening skincare routine, I hoped it helped some of you out and gave you some insight into Liz Earle!

Highlight Your Natural Beauty

When I started out this blog, I enjoyed wearing makeup, but as I have continued on with it for many months now, I’ve fallen in love with it. Now this means that I very quickly had to learn how to take better care of my skin, so that when I was wearing makeup, I was wearing it to have fun and accentuate my features and skin, not hide them.

So today I’m sharing with you guys my go to essentials for how I take care of my skin.Highlight Your Natural Beauty

Cleansing | I’ve said it many times before, but with wearing makeup, comes the responsibility of properly removing it and cleansing your skin of impurities. I don’t have a particular strenuous and crippling cleansing routine, because one of my essentials is the Nivea 3 in 1 Micellar Water, which makes the whole process easy and quick.

I also like to use the Nivea Soft Moisturiser, which as I have also mentioned before, is very light and gentle on the skin, and not greasy and heavy like many moisturisers. 

I also make sure I’m taking care of my skin from the inside out. Ensuring I drink as much water as possible. It really does have an unbelievable effect on your skin, that you wouldn’t believe until you’ve committed yourself to drinking more.Highlight Your Natural BeautySkin Treat | In and out I also like to give my skin a little treat with a face mask. I feel like this really helps my skin on a much deeper level than simple cleansing. I definitely feel like an occasional skin treat like this ensures my skin is clear and feels amazing. This leads me to feel more confident in it, and not like I need to cover it up.

I think another product that is absolutely perfectly suited for a skin treat such as this is Glossier’s Moisturising Moon mask it does every little thing that I like to do for my skin. It “dives beneath the surface to instantly plump skin up with hydration, helping to smooth fine lines and restore elasticity.” And “works quietly behind the scenes to gently brighten and even out your complexion, while honey and aloe act as soothing agents.”Highlight Your Natural BeautyFlawless Finish | Now obviously some days you can feel a little unhappy with your skin. You might be having a random breakout, or suffer with a little redness, it happens to us all. So these products are my handbag essentials for those times. I like to wear a BB Cream as opposed to a foundation because they feel much lighter on the skin, and they have so many more skin benefits, rather than just clogging up your pores. I also like a light concealer because it’s perfect for if you’ve just got a touch of darkness under your eyes, or a little pesky red spot. With a light concealer, you can cover those tiny things, but still allow the rest of your naturally skin shine.

Finally, when I do chose to wear these products, I like to apply them with a beauty blender, because the product is tapped onto the skin, not smeared into your pores, leaving you with a naturally flawless finish.

Those are my essentials for highlighting, not hiding your natural beauty. Thank you to for working with me on this post. Let me know in the comments below what your go to skincare products/essentials are!

And, as they say at Glossier, I leave you with a great motto:Highlight Your Natural Beauty
