Night-time Skincare Routine

I think our night time skincare is always the most important. We are healing when we are sleeping and our skin can do the same. I'm pretty good at taking off my make up before bed or cleansing, toning and moisturising. Sometimes I haven't and I always regret it. I have tried numerous methods and products at night-time and I finally think I have found something that works for my dry skin.

First off I start off the same as my morning routine and I use micellar water and toner (alcohol free). Next I apply my DIY eyecream(see my post on how to make this). I apply this softly to the under eye area and on my lid. Next I use the 'Garnier Miracle Sleep Cream'. This does contain a alcohol ingredient but I need something for the wrinkles and I figured one of the products I use can contain alcohol.

About 3 times a week instead of the sleeping cream I apply 'Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan oil'. This stuff is amazing. Its expensive but amazing. Its so hydrating and is multi-functional. This can be used on the hair, skin and nails. I love products that do 2 or 3 things. I can justify the price because its an all rounder.

The Micellar water can be found at any drugstore/pharmacy as well as the toner. These retail anywhere from 4-6 euro. The 'Garnier sleeping cream' retails from 14-17 euro. I found mine at a local drugstore/pharmacy. Finally I bought my 'Josie Maran Argan Oil' in sephora. This retails for $48 US for a 50ml bottle. I know the body shop have brought out a range of beauty oils that are supposedly great. Which I will try in the near future,
