Usually at night time I can never be bothered with a full skin care routine. After work, beauty class, working out and studying I just want to fall in to bed. Sometimes I even commit the greatest beauty crime of going to bed with my make up on! Shocking for a beauty blogger I know, I know!
However lately I have been really in to skin care in general and I have made a conscious effort to look after my skin before I go to bed.
During the night your skin repairs and renews itself so it makes sense to use protects that will help this process along. I have been obsessing over facial oils and balms to give my skin some night time nourishing.
There are three products in particular that I have been rotating nightly.
Decleor Aroma Night Ylang Ylang Purifying Night Balm
I recently visited a spa and whenever I do this I suddenly become obsessed with essential oils. This is mainly because spa products smell so good! This Decleor night balm certainly meets this criteria. Being 100% natural this balm is for oily/combination skin (I have combination skin) and helps to cleanse, purify, rebalance, soothe and reduce imperfections.
You only need to use a small amount of this product and warm it between your palms. It turns from a balm in to an oily formula and you massage in to the skin.
This products smells amazing, feels amazing to apply and I wake up in the morning with soft, supple skin and my blemishes reduced. I love it!
M.A.C Care Blends Essential Oils Grapefruit + Chamomile
This face oil contains Grapefruit and Chamomile essence with four conditioning botanical oils. It helps purify, regenerate, soothe and calm the skin. I must admit that when I first received this I was a bit scared to use an oil on my face in fear of waking up with congested skin and break-outs. However facial oils are developed for the delicate skin of the face and work with your skin, so definitely no break outs!
I love this oil firstly the dropper applicator makes it so easy and mess free to apply the oil. It smells great and really helps moisturise my skin. When I wake up my skin is soft and it feels like it has received a strong dose of goodness.
ESPA Replenishing Face Treatment Oil
As you will probably be well aware I am a huge ESPA fan. This facial oil again is packed with essential oils. 'Neroli and Sandalwood Essential oils help revitalise and stimulate cell renewal, while Vitamin E-rich Avocado and Patchouli extracts deeply nourish and soften even dehydrated skin for a smooth, supple finish'
This oil is great for nights when my skin feels bit drier and in need of some deep nourishing. This product smells and feels luxurious. After applying this facial oil I always wake up with the softest skin.
I have definitely noticed an improvement in my skin since using these products. It feels a lot smoother, softer and generally healthier. I have been loving my little five minute pamper session every night and definitely will keep it up.
