My Skin Cleansing Routine (PM)

Hello Lovelies,
Today's post is going to be all about how I cleanse my skin every evening. I did a post a while back on my skincare routine. If you'd like to check out that post please click here.
A few of the products that I use have changed lately so I thought I'd do am updated post for you explaining how I cleanse my skin.
Just to give you a little background on my skin type. I am 32 years old, but lucky for me my skin is pretty much wrinkle free and I only get a few occasional breakouts which mainly appear during that time of the month. I'd say my skin type is normal to combination and I sometimes get oily in my T-Zone during the day. I think my main concerns are that my skin can look dull and also that I have a somewhat uneven skin tone.  
What I am loving about my current skin cleansing routine is that it removes all traces of make up (and I do wear a lot of make up on a daily basis) without being harsh on my skin. I have found that my skin has been in a much better condition since I have been using this skin cleansing routine.
Here are all the products I use to cleanse my skin:
Superdrug Cotton Wool Oval  Pads
Bioderma Sensibio H2O (review)
Superdrug Naturally Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser (review) or  
Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser (review)
Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Wash (Normal  and Combination Skin)
Helena Rubinstein All Mascaras Complete Eye Make Up Remover
Superdrug 100% Pure Cotton Wool Round Pads
Bioderma Sensibio H2O
 The first thing I do in the evenings before my shower is grab a Superdrug oval cotton wool pad with a small amount of Bioderma on it and wipe across my eyes and face to remove most of my make up. My mum got me my Bioderma from Dubai, but it is finally available in the UK. You can buy it online from John Bell Croyden (link) and it's pretty affordable as well which is great news!. 

The next thing I do is use one of my Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleansers to cleanse my face. (I have both the Vitamin E and the Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser, so I'll use either one of these depending on my mood). What I do is massage the hot cloth cleansing cream over my face and eyes. I then run the muslin cloth that comes with the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleansers under hand hot water and use it to gently wipe the hot cloth cleansing cream off my face. Using a muslin cloth is great because it gently exfoliates your skin, which is why I don't use a separate exfoliator.
Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Wash
Once I've done this I'll wash my face using the Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Wash.This is the best drugstore facial wash I've tried in a while. A lot of drugstore face washes seem to have quite a watery consistency. The Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Wash however is quite a thick gel and it reminds me a lot of the Clinique Wash Away Gel Cleanser which I was using before. 

Once I've dried my face I will take a tiny amount of eye make up remover to get rid of any last  traces of make up I've got left on my eyes, which is usually a stubborn bit of mascara or eye liner. I'm currently using the Helena Rubinstein All Mascaras Complete Eye Make Up Remover for this step, however if you are looking for something more affordable I can really recommend the Garnier Simply Essentials 2-in-1 Make Up Remover.

 And that's it for my skin cleansing routine. I know it must seem like a lot, but everything I do is really simple and quick, and all the products that I use other than the Helena Rubinstein All Mascaras Complete Eye Make Up Remover are very affordable. I do wear a lot of make up, and I think it's really important to cleanse your skin properly at the end of the day because other wise you can end up with clogged pores which can lead to breakouts.
I hope you've enjoyed reading this post.
