After I uploaded a story to my Snapchat about my night time skincare routine – each picture had over 100 screen shots and lots of you mails asking me to blog it! If you’re on Snapchat, don’t forget you can follow me on @sosueme_ie
I don’t know about you, but I find snapping so addictive. I’m always on it! Anyway, here are all the details of my nightly skincare routine.
Before I start with my fave products, if I could give you ONE tip – it would be to ensure you remove your makeup every night.
Even if I’ve had a few drinks, I will make sure I remove my makeup. Now dont say this too loud, shhhh…. but use a wipe if you absolutely have too.. ahh I HATE them, but your makeup is better off than on at night time! So try and get into the habit!
Now starting with cleanser….
To cleanse my skin, I use Declaré Cleansing Milk. The one I have is for normal skin, but I think it’s great for sensitive skin too because it’s so gentle. I have sensitive skin myself and I have been using this for over a year now. I absolutely love it.
Once I have the foundation removed, I use my No.7 Beautiful Skin Eye Makeup Remover to take off my mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow. It’s extremely affordable, and so good for removing heavy eye makeup. Personally, I think it’s very like the Clarins Eye Makeup remover, but half the price.
Next I pop on my serum. I have long been a fan of rosehip oil, and at the moment I am loving this one from Trilogy. I also used to use the rosehip oil from Kinvara Skincare in the past and I love that too. I just find that the oil visibly improves my skin and I always notice a big difference when I stop using it. It’s a really good solution for dehydrated and tired skin.
You just pop a few drops straight on to the face and massage it in.
TIP: This is also great for flying! If your skin is feeling tired, pop some of this on and let it soak in for about 20mins – heaven.
As you all know, I’m a big fan of the Juliette Armand range, you can red my review here. As part of my night time routine, I use their Thavma moisturiser and eye cream.
I have been using this brand for 4 months now and the results have been brilliant. I’m on my second jar and by the looks of it, I’ll be onto my third very soon as my current one is nearly all out! I use it every morning and night without fail.
For eye cream, I use a pea sized amount of my Juliette Armand Opsis Lift Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream. It’s so good and because you only need to use a tiny amount, it lasts for ages too.
Once a month, I use the Juliette Armand exfoliator. I also have the Juliette Armand Cleanser Gel but I tend to prefer a cleansing milk.
From time to time though, Dylan will use the cleansing gel whenever his skin is feeling a little greasy. He prefers gels to milks, and he finds this one particularly good.
So there you have it guys, my full night time skincare routine!
