When I was a little girl, I used to hate being told it’s bedtime, but now I love it. As I work full time, i can’t wait for the evenings to get into bed and be all snug. At the weekend I love to have a proper pamper evening, which I will probably do a post on another time, but that can be quite lengthy. During the week I have found the perfect routine which takes half as long.
The make-up removal. I think this is the step that every girl hates, it just feels like a chore. The first step for me are make-up wipes. I know a lot of beauty bloggers hate wipes, but for me they work perfectly, it’s quick and easy. I have tried lots of different brands but I always go back to Simple as they don’t break me out or make my face feel dry. Once I have taken most of the make-up off with a face wipe, I will ten go over my face again with Garnier Micellar Water. I had heard a lot of great things about this product so was desperate to try it out. I soak a decent amount on a cotton wool pad and just wipe over my face and eyes to get all the express off to make my face super clean.
The next product I use is my holy grail. Pixie Glow Tonic. I think I have been using this for about 2 years now and I don’t want to stop using it anytime soon. This product tones, smoothes and refines my skin which removes dead skin cells which leaves my face feeling smooth and glowing. It can be used in the morning or at night, I prefer to use it at night as it has quite a strong scent and I do know a lot of people don’t like it. I have very nearly ran out though so i desperately need some more!
You would think I love Pixi products as next I use Pixi’s Glow Mist which I recently got for Christmas. I use this in the morning and at night. At night I just lightly spray it over my face as it has 13 natural oils, aloe vera and fruit extract which is really good for the skin. In the morning I spray this once I have applied my makeup as it sets the makeup and adds a dewy effect which I love. I can definitely see myself loving this product more and more each day.
The last step to my night time routine has to be moisturiser of course. At the moment I am using Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser, to try and give me a hint of colour for the last winter months. I really love this as it makes me face feel so lovely and smooth with a hint of tint. The only thing I’m not too sure about is the smell. I think it smells a lot like suncream which some people may love, but I’m just not that into it. But it is a lovely moisturiser.
Once I am all pampered and clean, I am ready for bed. I normally whack my PJ’s on(normally from Primark of course) and a Disney film. At the moment I love my adult colouring in book whilst watching YouTube videos on my Apple TV. Ahh the perfect night.
What are your holy grail skincare items? I would love to try out more. Believe it or not I would love to try out more of the Pixi skincare range as I love the two products I have so much.
Love always, G x
