Beauty Before Bed

night time skincare routine before bed

This post is going to be talk you through my bedside beauty stash. Some months all you'll find here is a stack (a literal stack) of lip balms, other months it will be hand creams but sometimes I fall nicely into a little bedtime beauty routine, and that is exactly what I'm going to be sharing with you today.

First up is the night cream that I inevitably forgot to apply after my facial oil. I pulled Vichy's Normaderm Night* out from the depths of my stash last month and I'm a day or two away from finishing it for good. I'll be sad to see this go, it's a lovely balancing night time treatment for oily, blemish prone skin that's on the more sensitive side. Another product I always forget to apply is eye cream, so I've been keeping my Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream* close by for last minute applications. I've been really enjoying using this and I've noticed that my under eye area has become noticeably softer and is more hydrated since I started using it last month. Next up I pull out my This Works Deep Sleep Plus Pillow Spray and gently douse my bed linen in its lavender scent. I find that this does actually help me fall asleep as the scent is very calming. Whilst enjoying the aroma I move on to the last steps in my routine, which are always applying a lip balm and hand cream. I'm currently loving Malin+Goetz's Lip Moisturiser because it is incredibly thick and hydrating and seems to stay in place for an exceedingly long time, giving my lips every chance to drink up. I'm trying to use up my Roger & Gallet's Rose Hand and Nail Cream* because it's been lingering in my collection for about a year now. It isn't super hydrating but it has a pleasant delicate scent and sinks in quickly which is exactly what I want at the moment because afterwards I normally reach for a book!

Have you tried any of the products I've mentioned? What products do you reach for last thing at night?

  1. I'm getting so lazy with my own bedtime routine. I try to use an oil/serum on a night and a thick moisturiser to replenish what I've lost during the day/give my skin some TLC. I've been using the balance Me eye cream too and it really helps with my puffy eyes on a morning!

  5. I love having a little stash of stuff next to my bed - means I always remember to use it! I have been into my hand cream and lip balm at the moment as my hands and lips are so dry, such a pain! xx

  9. Lip balsam are always a staple in my winter bedtime routine. The Balance Me eye cream sounds amazing and I am on the hunt for a good eye cream. I dunno what it is about the This Works pillow spray but I can't stand the scent of it and instead of helping me sleep I just get frustrated x

  14. Thank you for the comment on my blog.
    These products sound good, defo have to try them out. Lovely post

  15. I really need to try the Vichy Normaderm, I seem to always wake up and look in the mirror to see a couple of pesky blemishes and it can be incredibly annoying when you take the time to really look after your skin and spend a lot of money on expensive skincare products. The Vichy is so affordable and it seems like it provides great results too, definitely going to try this out soon!

  17. I simply cannot be without the This Works Pillow Spray, you should definitely check out their Deep Sleep Dream Cream, it is such a gorgeous product, I'm already on my second tube and have just picked up some bath salts from the same range :)
