My Evening Skincare Routine

I've been trying out a few new skincare products recently and have fallen a little bit in love with some of them so I thought I'd share the love and maybe some of these will be great for your skin too! I have dry skin so most of these products are designed to help with that.

I use Lush's Ultrabland* facial cleanser to remove my make-up. It took a little while to get used to this because it's a very strange consistency and it's not what I'm used to using on my face at all. It feels kind of like a thicker Vaseline, or a wax, and I just rub a small amount all over my face then rinse it off. It works well to get all my make-up off and is gentle enough to use on my sensitive skin.

After that I use my Simple Soothing Facial Toner to make sure every last trace of my make-up is gone. I then use Simple's Rapid Action Spot Zapper on any problem areas. This really works to reduce redness especially, and is very affordable.

I use Benefit's It's Potent eye cream to hydrate and brighten my eye area. This is a slightly more expensive product but a little really goes a long way. I've had this for over a year and it's nowhere near done at all. It has a lovely cooling effect which is perfect in the summer months!

I then move on to my two favourite skincare products, which are both from The Body Shop's Vitamin E range. First up is the Overnight Serum-in-oil which injects some much-needed moisture into my skin and feels really lovely. I leave that to soak in for a bit then use the Intense Moisture Cream, which is nice and rich without being too heavy.

I'm not sure if this counts as skincare but I'll go ahead and include it anyway. I use Santa's Lip Scrub* from Lush (sorry about the state of the pot!) followed by Carmex to keep my lips soft and smooth. This is a great combination for getting rid of any dry patches so I'd really encourage you to try it if you have chapped lips.

So that's my current skincare routine and I think it's working out pretty well. I've tried so many different products in the past but I quite like this routine I have at the moment.

What are your must-have skincare products?


  1. I've actually just bought The Body Shop's Serum in oil and got the Vitamin E cream free a while ago when I placed an order. I'm going to use them together tonight and I'm looking forward to seeing what they're like x
