My Night Time Skincare Routine

Hi everyone. I thought I would finally share with you my night time skincare routine. I haven’t shared my skincare routine before because I keep experimenting with products and love trying out new skincare. 

I am currently loving these products every night:

Cleanser
I started using the Lancome Galatee Confort cleanser after reading about it in Caroline Hirons blog (www.beautymouth.com). It is extremely gentle and also doubles as a makeup remover. If I do have makeup on, I make sure I do a pre-cleanse first with the Bioderma make up remover.

Toner
The Lancome Tonique Confort is a hydrating toner and does not feel like it strips the skin of its natural oils (like most other toners do).

Eye Cream

I use the Clarins ‘Special’ Eye Contour Balm under my eyes. I love it because it is hydrating and non greasy.

Serum
I use the Olay Regenerist Night Renewal Elixir at night. I love how it makes my skin feel and a great plus point is its affordable price.

Moisturizer
I recently started using the Nuxe Prodigieuse Anti Fatigue night cream. It feels rich and luxurious, yet it immediately sinks into the skin leaving it healthy looking and so soft. I also love how it smells.

Special treatment

Once a week I use the clarins Skin Beauty Repair Concentrate SOS treatmet serum and also the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening toner (both recommendations by Caroline Hirons).

This routine works perfectly for me at the moment and I wake up with skin that looks healthy and supple.

Do you use any of these products? Any other products that you recommend?

Pixi Bronze Bloom Trio- Review

Hi my lovely readers. So I am back after ages. A lot has happened since my last post. My husband and I became parents to a beautiful and precious little boy.

I really needed time to recover and bond with my baby. Taking care of a baby is really a 24 hour job. So while my sister is watching my little one, I decided to do a quick post on a product I have been obssessing over lately. Even though I have barely been leaving the house, I do sometimes like to put on a bit of makeup to lift up my mood and make me feel glamorous again. The pixi Bronze Bloom Trio in No. 1 Bronzette is what I have been reaching for.

It contains a gorgeous barbie pink blush and a peach blush and a beautiful bronzer all in one. The bronzer gives a subtle bronzy glow. It is not suitable for contouring. They all have a smooth satiny finish and makes my skin look so radiant.

I also adore the green packaging of pixi products. Are any of you fans of pixi? And product in particular?
