My Night Time Skincare Routine

Skin care is something I've only really taken notice of since the beginning of this year. I was the girl who used face wipes and almost always slept in her make up. I felt you wince as you read that. That was until I turned twenty something and was told by my lovely mother, I really needed to start moisturising. She was right, enter me tearing Boots apart looking for something to revert my skin back a few years. I've really taken notice though and have tried some fab products this year. 

I currently use six products religiously at night with a couple of others thrown in every other night. First up is my favourite cleanser, Garnier Micellar Water, I just soak large cotton pads full of this and wipe away the days dirt and grim, it's so soothing and refreshing. I put it in the fridge for the mornings to really wake up my skin. 

Next up is the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel, which is said to revive, restore and protect skin. I just pat a couple of pumps of this over my face and neck, letting it soak in. It smells really natural and I've noticed how my skin feels much smoother and more awake. 

After letting the recovery gel soak in, I pat Soap & Glory's Make Yourself Youthful eye cream under and around my eye area using my index finger. Do not get this in your eye, it stings so much! The results are worth it though. I follow the eye cream up with the Make Yourself Youthful serum, couple of pumps worked into my skin, making it feel all plump. I use the Monu Recovery Balm as a night time moisturiser. This contains soft rose and bergamot essential oils which I find is a really relaxing scent, a little goes a long way and it melts into the skin leaving it really smooth. 

My skin always feels so soft in the morning. Lastly I use Soap & Glory Smooch operator on my lips as it's quite thick, perfect to leave to soak in overnight for soft lips in the morning. 

I don't really do much different in the morning apart from using a lighter moisturiser. What skincare products do you use? I'd love to know if you think I'm missing something important from my routine as I'm having a real thing for skincare at the moment and to be honest, I'm still pretty clueless about what to use.
