Following on from 'My Winter Morning Skincare Routine' today I'm going to be chatting to you guys about how I take my makeup off on an evening & prepare my skin ready for the next day.

To begin with I remove the majority of my makeup with Garniers' micellar water. I take a few drops of the product onto a cotton pad, which I bring to my eyes first and leave the for a couple of seconds before swishing my makeup away. I only discovered micellar water about a year ago, but I have honestly never looked back - I wish I'd discovered it sooner, as it's makes my evening skincare routine soo much quicker!

To remove any excess makeup I then go over with Soap & Glory's Peaches & Clean. This is a product that I really didn't like to begin with, but after leaving it a little while & retrying, I've absolutely fallen in love with it. I've equally fallen in love with the double cleanse. My skin feels so refreshed & moisturised after using the two products together, for my skin they are a force to be reckoned with!

To replenish and soften my skin I use The Body Shops' Vitamin E Overnight Serum in Oil. This product works its' magic overnight & reveals a youthful glow to the face, the next morning. I find using even the tiniest amount of product goes a long way with this serum so I know I'm definitely going to get my moneys worth out of this one.

Just to add a bit more moisture to my face and neck area, I'll pop on a small amount of the Derma Q10 innovations night cream. You can pick this moisturiser up for a measly couple of quid & it works fantastically well. I've been using this in summer too, but I find it especially useful at this time of year because of the thicker, more nourishing formula.

Finally, if I'm feeling like my skin needs that extra pick me up (which is most days at the moment - damn you 5am gettyups) I'll use The Body Shops' Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask. If you were to only buy one product from The Body Shop, I'd be recommending this little beauty all day long! I flipping love the stuff. It's a total skin transformer! Each morning after using this overnight mask, my face looks amazing (not to blow my own trumpet or aything) but it looks so healthy & hydrated - Perfect for these cold ass days we're having.

Are there any products here that you'd like to try or have already incorporated into your skincare routine? I'd love to know in the comments below.

Once again, thank you for reading & following me on my #Blogmas journey. Lots of love | Claire.x
