Friday Night Skincare Line-up
It might not be stereotypical for someone in their twenties, but I've always been one for enjoying a quiet night in on a Friday! Most weekends I like to have a little pampering session before spending the rest of the night chilling out reading or watching a movie with my other half. Tonight's skincare line-up is keeping things relatively simple! (Excuse the fuzzy photo quality, the lighting in my bathroom at nighttime isn't great!)
I had a makeup free day so skipped out my usual makeup removal step and instead started off with Botanicals Mandarin & Chamomile Facial Polish* (full review here). It's one of my favourite products as it's a super gentle exfoliating cleanser and always leaves the skin feeling rejuvenated. My skin has been looking a little lackluster lately, so to give it a bit of a boost I decided to use up the last of my Earthbody Brighten Mask sample from a Petit Vour beauty box*. I just mixed the powder with a little water and honey, left it on for a couple of minutes and my skin was looking so much brighter when I rinsed off the mask!
Since I ran out of my usual toner the other day, I dug out this little travel size bottle of Mel Millis Organic Neroli Hydrolate Mist Tonic which is perfect for balancing the pH levels of the skin. Neroli has quite a distinctive scent that definitely won't be for everyone, but surprisingly I don't mind it too much! Following up from the toner, I've been testing out Blue Labelle's Moringa & Raspberry Seed Face Oil* from their new Biologique range. I love how it absorbs into the skin almost instantly, leaving the skin matte and it's been really helping to balance my combination areas. Tonight's line-up finished off with my current favourite Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream. It has such a nice, light texture yet still leaves your under eyes hydrated. I've actually noticed my milia have dramatically reduced since using this eye cream too - it's definitely a winner!
Do you like quiet nights in too? Have you tried any of these products before?
