Bedside Beauty

I think we all have a beauty product or two we like to keep within reach during the night; there are certain products you can expect to see on pretty much every nightstand or bedside table! For me, working evenings and therefore not getting in til 10pm or later most nights, when it comes to my bedtime skincare routine I'm really pretty lazy! I take my make-up off religiously before heading up to bed but whether I remember/can be bothered with things like moisturiser and eye cream is fairly hit-or-miss. I find it handy, therefore, to have a few necessities on-hand that I can slap on from the comfort of my bed...
Bedside Beauty
For me, hand cream is a must; I wash my hands a lot at work and they certainly show it. A dab of Sweet Cecily's Elderflower & Almond Hand Cream* is just the job before I drift off to sleep, to hydrate my hands overnight. I always try to use a lip-balm at bedtime, too; I've actually almost finished this one, which is a Cocoa Coffee one from this Etsy seller. Coffee might not be the obvious choice for a bedtime lip-balm but I find it a really comforting fragrance so there we go...
Bedside Beauty Products
Once or twice a week, I like to use an overnight face mask, in the shape of Origins Drink Up Intensive; I find this works so well as a really lovely shot of moisture to deeply hydrate my skin and help deal with any dryness and irritation. It also smells gorgeous so there's that. I rarely remember to use the CCS Foot Care Cream* or the Yves Rocher Anti-Fatigue Iced Gel* but when I do, they're just the thing for tired, sore legs and feet after a long day at work. Finally, I have my tin of The Body Shop's Wild Argan Miracle Solid Oil on hand for any dry patches, particularly my elbows; again, this smells lovely, and it works so well to soften up the flaky bits overnight. Also pictured: my One Line A Day Journal, available here, and If You Feel Too Much: Thoughts On Things Found And Lost And Hoped For by Jamie Tworkowski, which is my favourite book ever. You can order that here if you're interested.
What are your bedside essentials? Are there any products you'd add to my selection?

  8. I LOVE The Body Shop! They have so many different scents, everyone can find something they like. :-) I always keep a lip balm beside my bed at night so I remember to apply it before I fall asleep. If I don't, I'll never remember to an my poor, dry lips will feel it!
