As promised in last week’s Morning Skincare Routine, here is my Evening Skincare Routine, featuring the Evolution of Smooth’s Sphere Lip Balm.
Just to reiterate from last weeks post, skincare is something that is super important to me and I am a firm believer in starting to look after your skin from a young age! Lip balm is also such an important step in a skincare routine, not just for Summer, but all year round, which is something I think a lot of people tend to forget about!
So, I start by removing my makeup and cleansing my face with the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm. This stuff works miracles, let me tell ya. Not only does it do an amazing job at removing all, yes all, traces of makeup, but it makes my skin feel so fresh and clean and not at all oily or greasy. This is a product I have repurchased multiple times and will continue to do so! I am yet to find a product as good as this, so it is definitely worth the slightly heftier price tag.
Depending on how much makeup I have on, or if I just want a slightly more refreshing feel, I will then double cleanse using the Simple Micellar water. I have already spoken about this product in previous posts, so I won’t go on too much. But this is great for cleansing your skin and making you feel super refreshed as it is really cooling on the skin; perfect after a hot Summer’s day!
I then go on to use the Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser. This is great for just purifying your skin and reducing the look of blackheads and pores whilst removing any impurities. My face feels soooo fresh and clean when I use this product, and for me, it is always a good sign when a product makes your skin tingle slightly as it means it is doing the job!
Next, I use the Pixi Glow Tonic. Again, as with a couple of products in this post, I have mentioned before. This is the perfect product for toning and gentle exfoliation, without it feeling too harsh on your skin. It just helps to remove any dead skin cells and really smooth’s and brightens the complexion.
Eye cream. I cannot stress how important using an eye cream is. Eyes are usually the first things that start to age, so why not start looking after them from a young age? I use The Body Shop Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate with a roller ball applicator. This is a really cooling and soothing product, making it perfect for summer time. I also try and be super careful when applying product around my eyes as it is such a tender area.
Serum. I never really saw the point in serum *until*, I started to use one. The serum I use is The Body Shop Nutriganics Smoothing Serum. This leaves my skin feel so unbelievably smooth and hydrated and I really notice the difference when I don’t use this.
For night cream, I use another product from The Body Shop. This is the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask. This is unbelievable. Seriously. You honestly only need the tiniest amount and it hydrates my skin like nothing else I have ever tried. I wake up in the morning, and it feels like I have just applied it. AH-MAZING.
Finally, is actually something I feel a lot of people forget about – lip balm. I have been particularly loving the Evolution of Smooth (EOS), Sphere Lip Balms. Hydrating and nourishing your lips is just as important as any other step in your skincare routine. I mean, how are you supposed to apply lipstick when your lips are dry and cracked? It just doesn’t work. The EOS Sphere Lip Balm is really hydrating and nourishing and doesn’t leave that sticky, uncomfortable feeling that a lot of other lip balms do. It is really important to use these all year round as the heat and the sun dries out lips during the Summer and so does the cold in the Winter. You’re lips may feel slightly more dry and cracked than normal as we transition from Summer to Autumn as our skin adjusts to the weather change. I also like to use this lip balm before I apply my makeup, as it just evens out my lips and makes lipstick application a whole lot easier! I would definitely recommend trying out the Sphere Lip Balms from EOS – best lip balm I have tried to date.
So, that is everything for this week’s post. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it helped some of you with your skincare routines! Let me know what products are included in your routine!
