My favourite bedtime beauty products*

Hi everyone!

Today, I'm collaborating* with bed supplier, to share my favourite bedtime beauty products.

If you're anything like me, then bedtime usually comes at the end of a long tiring day and I am more than ready to just 'hit the hay', but before I catch some Zzz's, I like to take a few minutes to wynd down by using some of my favourite bedtime beauty products.

The first thing I like to do is remove my makeup and cleanse my skin. For this, I really enjoy using a cotton pad with some Garnier Micellar Water.  In terms of cotton pads, I don't care which brand they are as long as they have sealed edges to avoid getting cotton wool stuck in my nails. Poundland are actually where I get mine!

Once I've taken any makeup off, it's time for a deep cleanse. I love using the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser which really gets any excess dirt off my skin.

Once i'm feeling clean, I like to use the Pixi Glow Tonic to tone. It stings slightly if you've recently done any hair removal on your upper lip so use it wisely! I've been using this for years and whilst other toners have impressed me, this is the one I go back to time and time again. It leaves my skin feeling like I've just exfoliated it but without the harshness of actually exfoliating.

After toning, I like to use an eye cream. I've been enjoying using the Clinique All about the eyes which feels really cooling around the eye area. As someone who wears glasses a lot and who stares at a computer screen all day long, I tend to get really dark, sunken under eyes but using this has definitely helped so I tap this in gently around the eye area. I also like to store this in the fridge to make it extra soothing.

Speaking of eyes, I usually use some eyedrops to help soothe them after a long day. It's amazing just how much difference some eyedrops make.

One of my 'staple' beauty products to use in the evening is a Retinoid. I love the Inkey List Retinol Serum.  This unites 1% stable retinol with 0.5% granactive retinoid and squalane for hydration and soothing.  Retinol is designed to reawaken your skins cells. I'm 33 and starting to see some fine lines so this is definitely a step I couldn't miss in my routine.

After this step, I whack on some Estee Lauder Advanced night repair which  is my favourite 'night time' serum. It feels slightly tacky after applying and dries down over time. In the morning my skin always feels so soft and 'calm'.

Aside from that, I put some lipbalm on (dr pawpaw original balm is my fave), apply some roll on deodorant and occasionally will put some Ouai Rose Oil through my hair before washing it in the morning to add some moisture.

Aside from that, I like to spritz some This Works Deep Sleep Pillow spray over my bed and pillow to leave a 'fresh' and relaxing scent to snuggle down to.

Yaaaaawn. I'm so ready for bedtime already!

What are your favourite bedtime beauty products?
