My Skincare Routine: Part Two - Evening

A few days ago, I posted Part One of my Skincare Routine: Morning. Today, I'm sharing part two; the steps I take in the evening to remove the day and get myself ready for bed.
Evening Skincare Routine
I start by removing eye make-up with Garnier's Simply Essentials Soothing Eye Make-up Remover. I then use Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm to remove my make-up and any dirt or oil which has built up throughout the day. I remove this twice to be sure that my skin is left feeling soft, smooth, and completely clean. Together, these two products remove every trace of make-up and leave my skin ready for the next stages of my routine. If I'm having a shower, I'll do that after removing my make-up, generally using an exfoliator in the shower as I mentioned in my Morning Routine post. 
Next, I apply La Roche-Posay's Redermic R Dermatological Anti-Wrinkle Treatment, which I've been using for the last few days after receiving it as a Try from What's In My Handbag. I leave this to soak in for a couple of minutes, usually whilst I brush my teeth. I then apply Alpha-H Absolute Eye Complex to my eye contour area, and Witch Blemish Stick to any red blemishes, to help calm and shrink them overnight. I apply Laidbare's Spot The Difference over my forehead, cheeks and chin to help prevent spots appearing, then finish with Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser with White Tea; this isn't the best moisturiser I've ever used and I find it a little bit too heavy for my oily skin, but it smells lovely and does do a good job of hydrating my skin. I then drag myself into bed, where I apply lip balm and cuticle oil when I remember, and generally fall fast asleep!
What's your evening skincare routine like? Do you always remember to take off your make-up? Can you recommend a good night cream for oily skin?

    1. Ah it's fab isn't, and I love how it doesn't dry my skin out like some products do! xo

    1. Ooh no I haven't, I will have to look into it. Thank you for the recommendation! xo

  3. oh how is going Redermic R for you? I've been itching to try it out!
    As a night cream I tend to use a more harsh cream with AHA or benzyl peroxide but I do have acne so.

    1. I like it so far but have only been using it a week or so! :) xo
