My Evening Skincare Routine

Today's post is going to be my evening skincare routine. I thought I would take you through the products I use, their benefits and how I use them. I do this routine about once a week, and maybe just a face mask or cleanse mid week.
To start off with I cleanse my skin. I use the Lush Angels on Bare Skin cleanser. I am in love with this cleanser, as you may have heard in my November Favourites. I love how its so pure, with no harsh things in it, very much like a lot of Lush products. I put a bit of this in the palm of my hand, add a little warm water and scrub it in the palm of my hand to get it a bit more like a paste. I scrub it on my face then, like a normal cleanser and wash it off.
This cleanser is a really good match for me, as I have dry and sensitive skin. This is a really gentle exfoliator and the lavender scent through this just adds that spa like feel.

 The next step to my evening skincare routine is face masks. I tend to go from the Superdrug Cooling face mask and the Virgin Vie Vitamin C mask. Today I used the Superdrug one so I will explain about that. This mask is a little more of a cleanser/exfoliator than a mask. You apply it to damp skin, and rub it into your skin. Then I wait a few minutes and wash it off. This is the first face mask I've tried that actually helps my sensitive skin by Superdrug. My skin feels really smooth, and although a little dry, any old moisturiser can fix that.
 Moisturising is the next on my list. Today I used the Liz Earle moisturiser but I do usually use the Simple moisturiser on a daily basis. The Liz Earle on it just thicker and a deeper moisturiser than the Simple one. It also gives a nice glowing finish that I like. To apply this, I just apply it like any moisturiser, by just applying it onto my face.
My next step is a little new to me and its applying oil to my face. If I'm completely honest, I hate oil. I just hate the feeling and texture of it. From olive oil to skincare oil. But, to help my skin I have been applying the trilogy Rosehip oil. This just gives my skin that little more moisturisation needed for my dry skin, even after the moisturiser. I just take the pipette and put one drop on my forehead, one on both cheeks and one on the nose and another on the chin. I rub that in. I do advise that you have to put this on before sleeping, as it takes a long while to be absorbed by the skin. 
Lastly, I apply my Burts Bees lip balm. This is a big love of mine, as it is a minty lip balm that does the job. I would definitely advise going for some Burts Bees lip balms than just a Nivea one as I believe that this just does a better job all round.
I hope you enjoyed this little post, I really enjoyed writing it. In 2015 I want to expand my variety of different posts, and I think this is the first step to that goal.
