Makeup Removing/Night time Routine

Leave a Comment
So after doing the rather creative makeup look in my previous post I thought I would go through the steps that I do to remove makeup/ my normal night time routine.

The look of  'well this is going to be fun .........NOT!'

First off I do remove any lipstick that I am wearing just with a generic makeup/baby wipe. This is just so that once I am not just spreading the lipstick around my face, so using a makeup wipe for this part isn't too bad.

I then go in with a micellar water on a couple of cotton pads to get the bulk of the makeup removed. The one I use is Garnier Micellar Cleansing water, it is relatively cheap in comparison to others such as bioderma and I have had this bottle a while and barely made a dint in it really. I would say its pretty good a removing all types of makeup, but I would say that you need to cleanse again after this just as it's not really good for your skin to just use this.

Yep taking the makeup off didn't really improve the look!
Once I have removed the bulk of the makeup I will then go in and cleanse properly using which ever products I fancy using that evening. I have to say that if I haven't been wearing makeup during the day I will just go straight to this step as I don't think my skin needs double cleansing if it has only had moisturiser on it during the day.

I will firstly wet my face and use the Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleaner which is a refreshing facial wash that gets rid of any dirt I may still have on my skin. If I am feeling like a deeper cleanse I will rub this in further with my Konjac Sponge, the one I have is the green clay one for combination oily skin.
If I am wanting to do a mask (which I do try and do twice a week) I reach for my new mask at the moment the Body Shop Warming Mineral Mask which is great as it warms whilst your rubbing it in the skin and minerals in it help unblock pores. Now i have to say I don't like this one as much as I love my aesop parsley seed mask, but with the price being so much cheaper it doesn't do that bad of a job really.

I leave that on for about 5 minutes, then rinse off and spritz my face and neck with the Clear Start Toner by Dermalogica. I let the toner dry and then depending how I am feeling I will then either follow it up with the Body Shops Tea Tree Night Lotion (which I love the smell of, I find it really relaxing before I go to bed) or Dermalogicas Breakout Over Night Treatment.

I rub those into my skin and give them a few minutes to sink in, I then finish off my routine with ASDAs Q10 Night cream, this is quite a thick moituriser so i only apply a thin layer as my skin is oily in some areas but dry in others!

And that it is really, its a pretty simple routine as I don't think my skin really needs an over complicated process doing to it as it isn't actually that bad.

What is your guys typical evening routine, let me know in the comments below!
