My Updated Skin Cleansing Routine (PM)

17 comments
Hey Lovelies,
I don't know about you, but I always wear a ton of make up on a daily basis. I also have combination skin, which means I get oily in my T-Zone and the rest of my skin is usually quite dry. That's why it's really important for me to have a skin cleansing routine that removes all the slap off my face but is still gentle on my skin and does not break me out. This post is going to be all about the products I am currently using to get my face nice and clean before bedtime.
L'Oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution I always start my skin cleansing routine by grabbing a micellar water and popping a bit on a cotton pad to wipe the majority of my make up off. The one I'm currently using is the L'Oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution. I was using Bioderma which I absolutely love before, but sadly my bottle ran out so I decided to give the L'Oreal version a go instead, especially as it's available in Boots and Bioderma sadly isn't. L'Oreal's Micellar solution works by dissolving your make up and lifting excess oils and impurities from your skin. I wouldn't say it's as good as Bioderma but it's still a pretty decent product that's very affordable so I can't complain. I find it works really well at removing my foundation, but not my eye make up, in particular my mascara and eyeliner. This is why I am using a separate eye make up remover. 
Melvita Eye Make Up Remover
Recently I was sent the Melvita Eye Make Up Remover and I think it's absolutely amazing! Over the years I have tried out lots of different eye make up removers, some drugstore, some high end. My favourite eye make up removers are bi-phase ones that you shake up before using. In my experience, they work best at removing stubborn mascara and gel eyeliner which are usually a pain get off. So when I received the Melvita Eye Make Up Remover, I was happy to see that it is a bi-phase make up remover. Like all Melvita products, their Eye Make Up remover is organic and not tested on animals. This product contains orange blossom and floral rose water to gently moisturise and soften the delicate eye area. What's more, it has castor oil as well as a prebiotic in it to strengthen your lashes and protect the delicate eye area. Now I'm no biologist, but I am really enjoying using this eye make up remover because it's gentle yet does a fab job at removing all my eye make up, which includes gel eyeliner and several layers of mascara.
Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser
Once I've removed my make up I cleanse my face with a hot cloth cleanser. If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know I'm a massive fan of the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleansers.  They are really affordable yet do a fantastic job at cleansing and exfoliating your skin. Lately I've been using their Naturally Radiant hot cloth cleanser which contains Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry extracts that apparently help even out your skin tone. Now I can't say my skin tone has improved since I started using this product, and sadly the damage from using sunbeds for many years is still there (I think it will take a real miracle product to ever sort that out!), but I love how this hot cloth cleanser gently exfoliates and cleanses my skin. And even though it contains cocoa butter, but it's not at all greasy. If you live in the UK and have not tried this yet, I suggest you get yourself to down to Superdrug and purchase one as a  matter of urgency. Your skin and bank balance will both thank you for it!
Melvita Gentle Cleansing Jelly
Now you'd think having used 3 different cleansing products means I am now done with my skin cleansing routine, right? Wrong! After the hot cloth cleanser I like to wash my face using facial wash. Melvita have also kindly sent me their Gentle Cleansing Jelly so that's the one I've been using lately. I'll be honest and say that when I first received this product I was slightly worried that it would be too drying for my skin because it's a cleansing jelly, but I couldn't have been more wrong! This cleanser foams up lightly when you add water to it. It contains narcissus extract as well as rose floral water to brighten and soften the skin, and my oh my, does this product soften my skin! If you are one of those people that are not a fan if foaming facial washes and are looking a product that's more gentle yet still effective, give this product a go, I promise you'll love it! I still can't her over how soft my skin feels after every time I use it.
Melvita Witch Hazel Virginiana Water
Believe it or not, we have finally reached the final step in my cleansing routine. When I was younger, I used to religiously cleanse, tone and moisturise but toning is the one step I have got a bit lazy with and often forget about. Melvita did however send me their Witch Hazel Virginiana Water that I have been using lately as my toner and I love it! The smell of this product reminds me of Chamomile tea, and it feels really soothing when I apply it. If you've got really sensitive skin, this product can also be used as a gentle cleanser. 
Well, that's it for my skin cleansing routine. Once this process is complete, I pop on some serum, eye cream, moisturiser and off to bed I go.
Here are the links and prices for all the products mentioned above:
