SkinCare Routine & Night time rituals

Hello you lovely lot, i thought today i would do a post on my skincare products that i am using at the moment. I do chop and change my products quite a lot as im often reviewing different ranges but heres what im using at the present time.

I Keep all my daily products in this Mark Hill Bag that my friend brought me for xmas.

It fits so much in and keeps everything away from my inquisitive 3 year old.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. I use this everyday, sometimes twice a day. Its made such a difference to my skin. See Here for photos of before and after my Liz Earle Daily Essentials trial

Asda Essential wipes. For emergencies or lazy days. I'm not a fan of any of the wipes but these do the job as good as any.

Burt's Bees Anti-Blemish Toner. I use this twice a day and love it. It really helps control the blemishes and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. Review Here.

No7 Eye Makeup Remover. I use this if i have heavy eyemake or waterproof mascara on. Its brilliant and very gentle on my eyes unlike a lot of others.

Aromatherapy Associates Refining Face oil Lavender & Ylang Ylang. I use this at night to help balance my skin and give it a boost. I've not been using it long but am loving it so far. Review coming soon.

Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Creme-Gel. I use this spot fighting moisturiser in the mornings after my cleance and tone. It really mattifies my skin and prevents spots its a long term favourite product. Review here

Monu Eye Gel. I use this twice a day its so refreshing and great for reducing puffiness. Review here.

Liz Earle Spot on. I use this under my moisturiser at the first sign of a spot. It works wonders at taking down the redness and stops spots in there tracks.

Bio Effect EGF Serum. This little sample has worked wonders on my skin. So much so that i dont want to use it up as i cant afford any more lol. It makes my skin, clear, bright and healthy looking. A tiny amount goes a long way as well.

Dr Rose Apothecary Balm of English Roses. I love the smell of this. I apply it at night to help keep my lips soft and moisturised.

Burt's Bees Almond Milk Hand Creme. I love this stuff the smell is like marzipan and it leaves my hands so so soft. I apply it at night a few times a week. Its without a doubt my favourite hand cream.

Green Grocery Avocado & Lemon Foot Salve. I apply this a few times a week at night to wake up with soft tootsies. A gorgeous pampering natural treat. Review Here.

Xen Tan Face Tanner Luxe. My favourite facial tan which i use a few times a week to put some much needed colour back in my face. The colour of this is perfect for me and it makes me look so much healthier. Review here

Liz Earle Gentle Exfoliator. I use this a few times a week to help brighten up my skin and remove any dead skin cells. I am such a fan of the Liz Earle range as the products are all fabulous and seem to suit my skin. Review here

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask. I use this once a week to help detoxify and remove impurities from my skin. Also i like the experience of a bit of self pampering. My skin looks so much better after using this.

So thats the lot lol. I know it seems like a huge amount of products but i dont use everything everyday. Have you tried any of these products and do you have a night time ritual?


  1. Some really nice products there Nic. I was actually thinking about doing an updated skincare post too.

    The one thing I need is a good hand cream, might take a look at the one you mentioned. xx

  2. I too am using the Bio EFFECT EGF Serum and I'm using it as sparingly as I can. I love it but it's so expensive for a full size bottle xx

  12. I have a BioEffect sample I only used once (think I was too scared to try it for longer - don't know why, haha!) and I would absolutely love to send it to you (if you want to, of course :D), as it will surely expire in my drawer.
