There's nothing I love more than having a little pamper every eveing before I drift off to sleep - and as I sit here writing this post and singing my heart out to Lana Del Rey, I am really looking forward to having my nightly dose of indulgence this evening. Start by lighting your favorite candle for a hint of relaxation and let the pampering begin.
I start by removing my make-up and cleansing my skin. I like to use a richer cleanser in the evening such as the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm or the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish - these both leave my skin cleansed yet nourished. I then follow with the Benefit Its Potent Eye Cream which is a really light yet hydrating cream that sinks in incredibly fast to leave my under eyes as smooth as a baby's bottom. I then move onto moisturiser - recently I have been using the Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins which I cannot rave about enough. The cream itself actually feels like a cream/oil hybrid which helps to intensively moisturise my skin throughout the night which is a definite during the colder months. It also has a lovely scent, kind-of orangey and fresh but it also reminds me of cola bottle sweets, yum.
Then I give my lips a bit of a scrub with the Popcorn Lip Scrub from LUSH. I didn't expect to like the taste of this but I love it. Half the reason why I apply it is just so I can lick it off again, oops. I then apply the This Works Turbo Balm to my lips and cuticles as these have been a little dry of late. A cheaper alternative that is just as good is the Boots Botanics Face Super Balm which I have also been using on my elbows and dry patches on my face.
I then slather my body in the Dream Cream Hand and Body Lotion from LUSH. I love using this in the evening after a relaxing bath as it's scent has hints of lavender which calm me for a good nights sleep. The lotion is also really hydrating and leaves my skin feeling smooth and nourished when I wake up in the morning. I finish off my little night time routine with my nightly dose of my favorite you-tubers and a spritz of the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray on my pillow to help me drift off. Bliss.
Do you have a night-time routine like mine? What's your favorite part?
