Skincare routine (night)

Hello dolls,
I'm sure this is my first post of 2014 :).
This post about my nightly skincare routine. This helps to keep my skin in tip top condition and look in great shape.
I'm quite new to the skincare routine, I was never to bothered about creams and things, but now I do it every night without fail.
It's like me time. I get to pamper myself and have lovely skin at the end.

So my first step is that I take off the days make up which can be quite a lot depending on where I've been.
I pump one pump of this loreal skin perfection 15 second miracle cleansing oil into the palm of my hand and onto a dry face a massage this into my skin. It quickly dissolves into the skin removing most of my make up instantly with no hassle whatsoever.
I rinse it off with hot water and then re fill my basin for my next cleaning product.

Considering I was just a face wash girl I now believe I might over cleanse. So after the oil I use the superdrug naturally radiant hot cloth cleanser.
I don't know if this has made any difference to my skin with it claiming that it awakens skins natural glow, but it really does make my skin silky smooth . I love it's deep cleansing action and how themuslin (inside box) feels on my skin ,exfoliating all over, I take this all over my face and onto my kneck in a circular motion, applied on wet skin, and then I buff away the product using the muslin cloth provided.

After this I pat my face dry with a clean towel and set to work on my lips, I don't always use this step. It 3 out of 7 nights I will use a little bit of this.. The lush bubblegum lip scrub. The taste is amazing and my lips feel super polished and dead skin free.

I then move from my bathroom to my vanity and use the products below firstly the 3 in 1 purifying micellar solution gets swept over my skin using the oval cotton pads below this picture, I then set to work on my eyes with the eye makeup remover incase there is any mascara left behind. I then cleanse the skin and finish off with the toner.

I wait for my skin to dry and then in circular motions ,I pub in from my neck in upward motions the No8 protect and perfect intense night cream. This is a new product that's got for Christmas so I'm just testing it out.

Once the face is sorted I then move into the rest of the body and lather myself in the soap and glory butter yourself moisture lotion. I just love the smell of this, I love how the product melts onto my skin and how it's none greasy.after then I just place on some hand cream.

And just before I go to sleep I finish off with a small dab of nail oil on my nails , this is nurture oil and it smells like raspberry ripple. Mine has lasted me forever because you only need the tiniest bit. I bought mine from a local salon

I now have fabulous glowing and cleansed skin, all ready for its beauty sleep.

What's your skincare routine for bed?
