Bedtime Essentials

Saturday, 10 August 2013





I don't know about any one else, but I really enjoy giving myself a little ol' pamper before bed. Removing the days yucky stuff from my face, slathering myself in moisturizer and scrubbing my lips within an inch of their life! 

I start by cleansing my face with my all time favourite cleanser Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. It leaves my skin feeling really soft and removes any traces of left over make up. I hope i'm not the only one, but I love looking at the muslin cloth after i've used it on my face and seeing all the yuck of today, on it. Knowing that my face is like brand spanking new! 

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo is one of the most hyped about products ever! Okay, maybe not ever, but you get the picture. So recently I caved and just had to try out this much loved product. I really didn't want to like it and I don't. I frickin' love it! I've had a few spots on my chin recently, and they got quite angry and red. I applied this, for the first time, before bed and when I woke up in the morning, the spots weren't red at all and dramatically reduced in size! It has a firm slot in my bedtime essentials. Full review coming soon!

One thing that was lacking from my bedtime essentials was an eye cream. On a whim I picked up the Botanics All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll-On. It's really cooling on the eyes, leaving them really refreshed. I don't suffer from dark circles, but Aaron has used this, (he does get quite bad circles) and it worked wonders! I think I may have to buy him his own.. 

You're probably all sick of hearing about my love for Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I just love love love it. I give my face a quick spritz of this when I get in bed, and it just helps me to relax. To be honest, I think i'm just addicted to the smell :)

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub, is my favourite lip scrub around. Mainly because it tastes like bubblegum and who doesn't love that! It's great for removing any dry skin, leaving my lips baby smooth!

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter is the perfect lip butter to use at night. It's really thick and creamy, leaving my lips looking and feeling really soft when I wake up in the morning. It smells good enough to eat! And although you'll be really tempted to eat this..don't. It won't go down well, literally!

Id love to know your guys bedtime essentials, any recommendations would be great :)
