Recently I showed you my daily morning skincare routine and it seemed to be really popular so I thought I would also show you my evening skincare routine as this is another time of the day that can be difficult timewise!

My evening is quite hectic as I sit with Lottie until she goes to sleep (around 7:30pm) and then we eat so my evening starts around 8:30pm. This is when I can sit and relax watching telly without any children around! I need a skincare routine that I can do in 10 minutes or less, so I have worked on making it quick over the last few months.

I have started to wear makeup every day (one good thing to come from lockdown!) and I filmed a quick daily makeup routine for busy mums a few weeks ago so if you need some help with that too, pop over and have a look! Wearing makeup everyday has forced me to make sure I take it all off properly before bed each night as I have never, ever gone to bed with makeup on so I’m not going to start now!

My routine starts off with a cleanser, usually a no7 one (my current one is Radiant Results Revitalising Micellar Cleansing Water) and I use a cotton cloth to smooth it all over my face getting rid of all my makeup. This cleanser doesn’t need to be washed off so that’s it for that! Then I take off my eye make-up and I’m currently using one I was sent to review, the Gatineau Floracil Plus Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, with a cotton pad. I find eye makeup remover’s a little greasy, so I just use a really small amount. Then I use a toner. I’m actually using the Clarins Toning Lotion with iris as I was also sent this to review last month. Again, applied with a cotton pad. I avoid my delicate eye area with this! I use a lot of Simple products on my skin usually when I’m not reviewing skincare products as they are great for my sensitive skin!

Then I use an eye cream as I’m over 30 now! I try and use the eye cream every morning and evening to help with wrinkles. I love the No7 Early Defence one as its really creamy and soft. Finally, I pop a hydrating moisturiser on my face, again avoiding my eye area. I’m currently using the No7 HydraLuminous Overnight Recovery Gel Cream. This helps to rehydrate my skin after a day of wearing makeup!

That’s it! I drag myself into bed at this point as I’m usually knackered and its usually about 11pm. Lottie has a habit of being up all night to I daren’t go to bed any later than that!

What evening skincare routine do you currently have?
